It’s time for my Style Imitating Art (SIA) interpretation! This week’s inspiration artwork was chosen by SIA co-founder Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey, and she chose the bright and colorful poster for Sing Street, which was one of her favorite movies this past year.
I think this is the first time to feature this infinity scarf I thrifted back in December — and what better way to feature this chevron-print scarf of multiple neon colors than with an ’80s-inspired challenge?! And the background color of this part of the fence matches up almost perfectly with the background color of the movie poster! 😀
I wanted the scarf to be the focus of the look, so I paired it with an outfit of neutrals that also fit in with the movie poster.
Yep, I’m wearing denim on denim: black skinny jeans and a dark-wash denim jacket. But it works because the colors and washes are different — but no ’80s acid wash! And no “Canadian tux” here! 😉
The backdrop is a fence that’s been painted in multiple colors. (I believe it’s a fence that encircles a local child’s day care or playground.) I spied the fence a few weeks ago and thought at the time it might make a good backdrop for future photos. Multi-colored scarf, multi-colored fence — and just perfect for the movie poster inspiration! 🙂

Still time to participate in SIA!
Everyone — bloggers, non-bloggers, all genders, all ages, even pets! — is welcome to participate. Just send a pic of an outfit — selfies and flat lays are also just fine — inspired by this week’s SIA artwork to this week’s curator, Salazar, at firstname.lastname@example.org by tonight Monday, Feb. 27th. Salazar will be traveling, so she will then post the SIA round-up on her blog, 14 Shades of Grey, on Wednesday, March 1st.
Can’t wait to see the round-up!
And I’ll be back next Monday to choose the next SIA challenge… stay tuned 🙂
