It’s my favorite time of the week — a Style Imitating Art (SIA) round-up! Once more, here’s my choice this week, the painting “Two Women at a Window,” c.1655/1660 by Spanish artist Bartolomé Esteban Murillo.
First up is my real-life friend and fellow librarian Stephanie. I knew this painting with its earth tones and textures would be right up her alley. And she did not disappoint! She paired a gorgeous cinnamon-colored, velvety jacket with interesting jewelry (her necklace is made of recycled skateboards!).
Next is SIA veteran Erin from Loop Looks, who mixed black and brown tones for a very cool look. LOVE the animal print, as well as the overall relaxed vibe. Erin’s also ticking off all the boxes of my faves with this outfit: comfy, classic, and that long ‘n’ lean look. :)
I love that Izzy from Adventures in Hel TOTALLY committed to this week’s SIA inspiration, both with the pose and the “capital-V Vintage” top. I also cannot stop marveling at how the colors of her hair (do I detect a newly auburn undertone?), clothes, and background totally set off her skin to perfection. Absolutely gorgeous. Be sure to check out her full post for the inside scoop on her photo shoot!
Next is SIA co-founder Salazar from 14 Shades of Grey, who was able to draw inspiration and pieces from her capsule wardrobe! She went with a pop of color with the skinny belt, and highlighted the neutrals that are the foundation of the inspiration painting. Be sure to check by her full blog post for how she imitated each woman’s facial expression!
Finally, here’s my interpretation. You can see close-ups of my coral earrings and chunky wood bracelet here in this post.
A little bit of somethin’ for everyone in this round-up — casual and work looks mixed with vintage pieces and lots of texture. Nice job, ladies!
If you’re an SIA fan — or are wanting to jump in and participate! — the next SIA challenge will be curated by Jess @ Animated Cardigan next Monday.
