SIA: Le Chat Noir

Style Imitating Art

This week’s choice of art to imitate with an outfit is Le Chat Noir aka “The Black Cat.”

Jen chose this because she said that the tans, reds, blacks, and mustard colors felt very fall appropriate. Also because she’s a cat person and has it hanging in her house.

I, however, am a dog person*, so I’m pretty sure my interpretation is going to be Le Chien Noir and, will, of course, feature Chewie. The actual outfit is still up in the air, though. Stay tuned!

And, as always, if you want to participate just snap a photo of an outfit you wore inspired by this art and send it to librarianforlifestyle@gmail.com by next Monday evening, the 19th. She’ll post her round-up on the 20th.

*It should be said that I like cats just fine. I’m just horribly allergic to them.

    Oh good, definitely feature Chewie! I have this Steinlen hanging in my house…along with another one of his that features lots of dogs. The colors are the same in both posters though. We bought the Le Chat Noir poster simply because the cats’ ticked off, slightly psycho expression cracked me up.

    I love the idea of including Chewie! And the cat’s expression on this poster cracks me UP — I have an old picture somewhere of my cat Ibsen posing almost exactly like this, with that same facial expression, in front of this poster. Hilarious! The more we laughed, I think the more ticked-off his expression became 😉

      Me too Jen! The cat’s expression is both ferocious but funny too! Kind of like a cartoon cat, like Butch from “Tom And Jerry”. 🙂
