One last day to enter my blogiversary giveaway for a $50 Macy’s gift card! The giveaway closes tonight at 10 p.m. PST, and I will announce the winner in tomorrow’s post. See this post to enter and for all the giveaway details.
It’s time for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge, and this week’s Erin from Loop Looks chose something a little different this week (love it!) and something fitting for U.S. National Library Week, April 10-16.
The glass dome, pictured below, is the world’s largest Tiffany glass done, in the building currently known as the Chicago Cultural Center. The building opened in 1897 as the first Chicago Public Library, and the dome is atop the room where people picked up the books they had requested, now known as the Preston Bradley Hall. And, of course, the oldest library association in the world, the American Library Association, has its headquarters in Chicago. How neat are all these library connections?! LOVE. You can read more info about the dome here at this site.
The translucent glass, cut in the shape of fish scales, changes colors throughout the day, ranging from light blue to green to almost rainbow-colored. So you can pick any color for your inspiration outfit! I am also intrigued by the bold lines of the cast iron frame, so you could also go for black stripes or windowpane check. So many options! I am no idea yet where this SIA inspiration dome will take me, but it sure will be fun to think about!
So all are welcome to participate in SIA challenges, bloggers and non-bloggers alike. Just send a pic of an outfit inspired by this week’s inspiration artwork — selfies and flat lay pics are also fine — to this week’s curator, Erin, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions due by next Monday, April 18, and Erin will post the round-up on her blog, Loop Looks, the following morning.
