It’s time for the Style Imitating Art (SIA) round-up! Once again, here’s what I chose:
Una and the Lion, painted by British painter Briton Rivière (1840-1920), depicts figures from a story in Edmund Spenser’s epic 1590s poem, The Faerie Queene. Una represents “Truth,” and the lion represents “Honor.” You can read a translation of the story here. Also, click on the picture below for a larger image.
First up is SIA co-founder Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey, who put together this outfit from her Iceland travel wardrobe. Salazar is also a Leo, and there are sheep in the background (!!!), so there are both lion and lamb in her photo! LOVE IT. I also love Salazar’s blanket scarf.
Next is SIA co-host Erin @ Loop Looks, who was inspired by a previous outfit of mine, which is a super sweet nod to my upcoming birthday! 😀 Plus, she’s wearing the cargo vest we swapped a few years ago (mine was too short, hers was too long, so we swapped). Erin joked that the photo should be called “Erin and the Chewie” — brilliant!
Finally, there’s me in shades of cream with cognac accessories. You can read more about my sartorial choices and closeups here in this post.
Thanks everyone for another great round-up of style inspiration! A small round-up this time but all with really different outfits — I always love the variety in SIA round-ups!
Next Monday, Erin @ Loop Looks will be back to curate the next SIA challenge.
