It’s my favorite time of the month — the Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge round-up!
I chose one of Marc Chagall’s works that expresses love, in all its dark, swirly, enveloping beauty, 1944’s Coq Rouge dans la Nuit. I’ve always had a soft spot for Marc Chagall (1887-1985), who, to me, always seemed to express his own soft spot for love through his artwork. A prolific painter, he was also known for beautiful stained glass windows. You can see more of his artwork here and here, for starters.

The first entry comes via Jodie from Jodie’s Touch of Style, who sent in a pic of her mother, Charlotte, the 70+ model on her blog. LOVING the bright pops of color in the shirt, and especially in the shoes!
Next is longtime SIA participant Mike from Post Card Purposes, who immediately thought of his royal blue shirt, which totally echoes the painting’s dominant color. 🙂
SIA co-founder Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey is simple perfection in her navy dress, red shoes, and heart brooch. That brooch, echoing the woman’s heart in the painting, is a genius finishing touch. ♥
SIA co-host Erin @ Loop Looks went casual in blue and white with a gold necklace and brown sandals. And bonus Chewie! As Erin said, “I tried to get Chewie to play violin but I think he’s more of a vocalist.” LOL — the more animals this round, the better! 😀
Grace from Living with the A-Holts is back! And looking fabulous in her DIY’d dress, turquoise DIY’d shawl vest, silver bib necklace, and strappy coral red wedges. And her son is getting in on the SIA action, too! ♥
Longtime SIA participant Kezzie @ Kezzie AG is perfection in her blue floral dress and cardigan — complete with violin and red bird brooches! PLUS her belt with the heart-shaped clasp!!! Be still my violin-playing heart. ♥ ♥ ♥
A bonus couples selfie of me and my husband, Sam, for this SIA challenge! We both brought our hat game, with our straw hats and striped bands, plus the bits of blue in our tops. ♥
Finally, there’s my full entry, complete with lace and swirly earrings and cat brooches. See my post yesterday for more details and closeups!
Thank you to everyone who participated in this week’s SIA challenge. It was a FANTASTIC round-up, full of different shades of blue and whimsical touches!
Next Monday, Erin @ Loop Looks will be curating the Style Imitating Art challenge. Stay tuned! 🙂
