It’s time for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge, this round coming back to me to curate.
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.

Still time to participate! Here’s how:
Even though the photo art is pretty simple, there are a few different ways you could go with the inspiration. Color-wise, there’s black and gold, or extend that to yellow or orange or other metallics like rose gold. You could go with a graphic print, or even polka dots. (That would be fun!) You could also go with metallic jewelry or hoops or necklaces or bangles. Lots of options!
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 — that’s me! — at email@example.com by tonight by 10 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST). I will then post the SIA round-up on my blog tomorrow.
My all-black outfit is right on target with the inspiration photograph, as is the circular Wonder Woman logo in gold on the front. And Wonder Woman herself echoes the feelings I found in this photo, of being brave and hopeful and strong.
Of course, I had to amp up this super casual tee-and-shorts combo with metallic accessories, which also all relate to Wonder Woman, as well as to the inspiration photo:
- black and gold flip flops (it was not lost on me that when I put my feet together, the straps looked like “W”… and with the double straps, it was CLEARLY “Wonder Woman”…)
- braided headband with gold bits (the Amazonian women all have braids)
- gold knot earrings (to echo Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth…)
- rose gold bangles (yes, I wore an equal number of bangles on each wrist to echo Wonder Woman’s metallic cuffs)
I’m sure all these details were lost on everyone else, but they all made me smile. And of course, I have a style blog outlet to delve into all those details! 😀
And yes, I was mixing metallics with my gold and rose gold tones, but I didn’t let that stop me. This was a good outfit to scoot around town running errands. And I got lots of smiles (and thumbs up) from mothers and daughters wherever we went.
