SIA interpretation: Book club

It’s Style Imitating Art (SIA) time! To help celebrate Banned Books Week, I chose a “Be kind to books club — Are you a member?” poster created by Arlington Gregg between 1936 and 1940 for the Illinois WPA Art Project.

I really loved the bold colors of this poster, so I color-blocked blue and black together by layering a bright blue button-down over my new knit LBD.  I brought in the orange-y tones in the poster with cognac accessories.

I felt super comfortable in this outfit, which I wore on a teaching day. I also felt a little retro ’50s with the feminine silhouette of a belted and full-skirted dress. And I always love pairing cognac + black together!

And of course, I had a little fun twirling in my new dress!

    Awesome interpretation of the poster Jen! That’s a great blue! It reminds me of the blue used for our library’s theme color; that sort of cerulean ocean blue. Very cool! See you at the round up tomorrow!
