Hello, hello! Today I am taking part in Style Imitating Art again, for the first time in a while. I keep forgetting about it but for once I remembered.
This time Salazar chose a sculpture/installation from a series called “Ciclotrama“. This particular installation is “Ciclotrama 36“.
She said she chose it because she “liked the contrast between the strong gold frames and the delicate black strands of ropes”.
As soon as I saw the photograph I knew at least part of what I wanted to wear. I own a skirt that is perfect. Here is my final outfit:
As you can see, I combined the skirt with a black jumper. Mustard coloured tights and a gold necklace were an attempt to bring in the gold tones from the frames.
The skirt is from a Dutch brand called Superstition. I bought it in around 2014, I think. The black jumper (sweater) was purchased during my year abroad – so end of 2003/beginning of 2004 – when I realised I hadn’t brought enough winter clothes with me. The tights are H&M, purchased last year. And the necklace was a gift. It’s featured in other SIA outfits so you can see a close up of it here.
If you’re feeling spontaneous, you can still submit an outfit by emailing a photo to Salazar (email@example.com) by the end of today. The round up of all submissions will be on her blog, https://14shadesofgrey.wordpress.com/, tomorrow.
How do you like my submission? Isn’t the skirt just amazing?
