SIA interpretation: Snowy cloud

It’s time again for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge, this go-round curated by Erin @ Loop Looks.

SIA inspiration

Erin chose this photo, seen in the collage below in the upper left corner, because it reflects her world right now, Chicago under a blanket of snow. And this “Cloud Gate” sculpture — affectionally known as “The Bean” — is an iconic and public artwork in the city’s Millennium Park. You can read more about the sculpture’s history here.

My interpretation

My starting points were a white faux-fur scarf (which my mom recently gifted me) and my grey overcoat, as they mirror the predominant colors of the inspiration photo, grey and white, and the scarf brings in the snowy texture. Then came my large pearl earring studs, for something curved and smooth like the sculpture, and then my black and white polka-dotted dress. Finally, I settled on my two-tone, black-and-white Fluevog heels, to finish off with a bit of fun.

I recently got my  hair trimmed a bit shorter and spikier, as you can see in the photos above and below. I like that this shorter cut brings out the silvers in my hair — also appropriate for the inspiration artwork! 😉

And taking a look at my outfit proper, I slipped in a bit of red as a layer underneath my dress. It has nothing to do with the inspiration photo, but everything to do with (1) coordinating with my red lipstick, and (2) the Valentine’s Day holiday last week.
