SIA round-up: Light in the dark

It’s time for the Style Imitating Art (SIA) round-up!

SIA inspiration pick:

I chose a striking photographic artwork that I’ve had pinned on my private “SIA Ideas” Pinterest board for awhile. I found this public domain image on Pixabay, and it’s by a 16-year old Italian photographer, Joachim Mayr, who posts images on Pixabay under the username of “By_Jo.” You can see more of his photographs, mostly of closeups of nature and animals, online here.

Up first is Jodie, a frequent SIA participant, from Jodie’s Touch of Style, a blog that features her own style plus her step-mother Nancy, (60+ style) and her mother, Charlotte (70+ style).

Jodie, in a gold & plaid skirt, plus what looks to be some major bling in the accessories:

Nancy, in a gold & black kimono (also love her yellow sandals!):

Charlotte, in a maxi dress with yellow cardigan (and a black-and-gold tassel necklace that is perfect for this challenge!):

Next is SIA co-founder and co-host Salazar from 14 Shades of Grey, who went with a very simple, all-black outfit. Her copper circle pendant necklace mimics the circle of sparks in the photo, so you will *definitely* want to visit her post for the close-ups!

SIA co-host Erin from Loop Looks took advantage of a perfect event to use for the inspiration, a performance of fire dancers. Amaaaaaaazing! She put together a collage featuring one of the fire dancers plus a look at her black-and-tan outfit. She has lots more awesome photos on her blog post!

Stephanie’s back! I visited my good friend Stephanie in Portland last week, so I was able to take photos of her in her super-cute (and super-comfy) Lularoe dress. To me, the pattern totally looks like little pops of fireworks all over! Her sandals also have little central discs down the middle, and her teardrop earrings as well as her toenail polish are shades of orange.

And OF COURSE she had to twirl, which also totally fits the inspiration photo! 😀

Finally, there’s me in my black-and-gold Wonder Woman tee + metallic accessories! More close-ups and pics on yesterday’s post.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this week’s SIA challenge!

Erin @ Loop Looks will be curating the next SIA challenge next Monday, so stay tuned! 🙂

    I absolutely loved this collection and sooooo nice to see Stephanie who needs her own blog!
    I was going to join in with this- i have a lovely black dress with fireworks on it (in bronze and purple shades) but I just didn’t get around to ironing it and wearing it!

      Awwww, it is too bad you weren’t able to join in the SIA round-up this time… and just a reminder that you can always take a “flat lay” photo, laying out your outfit and taking a pic. I’ve had to do that a couple of times when I just haven’t had time to take actual outfit pics
