SIA: The Roses of Heliogabalus

It’s time for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge! This week, Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey picked the classic 1888 painting “The Roses of Heliogabalus” by Sir Lawerence Alma-Tadema (1836–1912). There’s more information about the painting, and what it symbolizes, here.

Salazar was looking for a piece that says “summertime,” and the subject matter is really interesting — the painting actually shows the banquet guests being smothered to death in rose petals! Be careful out there, y’all. 😉

So how do you participate in SIA challenges? Just take a pic of an outfit inspired by this week’s art choice — flat lays and selfies are also ok — to Salazar at 14shadesofgreyblog@gmail.com. Deadline is next Monday, June 13, and Salazar will then post the round-up on her blog, 14 Shades of Grey.
