SIA interpretation: Vogue peacock

It’s time for my Style Imitating Art (SIA) interpretation! It was my turn to curate the SIA challenge, and I chose a vintage Vogue cover, from November 1909, featuring a peacock scene in shades of grey, black, white, and orange.

There’s still time to participate in this week’s SIA challenge! Both bloggers and non-bloggers are invited to participate. Just send a photo — selfies or flat lays also just fine — of an outfit inspired by this week’s inspiration artwork. Send a photo to me at librarianforlifestyle@gmail.com by tonight, Monday, Oct. 31, 10 p.m. PST. I will post the round-up on my blog tomorrow morning,  All Hallow’s Day.

Librarian for Life + Style | Style Imitating Art challenge, Vogue peacock cover

It did not take me long to figure out what I wanted to wear for this week’s challenge. I started out in monochromatic grey, from my grey cotton knit dress (which has black seaming) to my tights to my ballet flats, with a pop of orange at the waist. I pulled in a bit of extra black with a grey-and-black ombre scarf, and I chose pearl jewelry:  white pearl drop earrings + a black pearl necklace.

I knew I wanted a pop of orange, and I had first thought of tying my orange sash, seen here, around the waist. And then I remembered my orange polka-dot ribbon belt, which meant I could get in the orange color PLUS the dotted pattern of the peacock’s feather. Score!

A closeup below of the belt plus the black seaming of the dress:
