SIA: The Chocolate Girl

Style Imitating Art

Happy Monday! Thank you for all your congratulations on Friday’s post. I really appreciate it. I think I’m still riding a runner’s high. Either that or it was watching all 40,000 people running the Chicago Marathon yesterday. I’m really excited to be marathon training again!

Speaking of highs, isn’t it true that chocolate has some kind of property that activates the pleasure center of our brain? It’s probably similar to what happens in a runner’s brain when they get a runner’s high. At least, that’s my attempt to segue into this week’s choice for Style Imitating Art: “The Chocolate Girl” by Jean-Étienne Liotard.

Salazar chose this week’s art and, to be honest, I’d never heard of it before! But, apparently it’s the logo on Baker’s Chocolate. Which I also always thought was called Baker’s Chocolate because you use when baking. No idea until just now that it’s actually named after a person….named Baker.

And this is why I love our Style Imitating Art series. I learn so much about art AND the people who participate.

Want to be one of those people? Just snap a photo of an outfit you wear that’s inspired by this painting and send it to 14shadesofgreyblog@gmail.com by next Monday, October 17th. It can even be a selfie or a flat-lay. Or just take a picture of chocolate. That totally counts, right?

    That’s a cool factoid to know Erin. We learn so much from these SIAs right?! That’s one of the reasons why I love being a part of them because I’m always learning new things.
    There’s so much to see in this painting and various ways to go about in interpreting it. It should be fun!
