A Light in the Dark [SIA Post]

Style Imitating Art

Monday’s here, everyone! I know that some of us dread Monday mornings for a variety of reasons, but this Monday also means a new Style Imitating Art challenge which may just be a light in the Monday darkness.

Appropriately, this pick from Jen could be referred to as “Light in the Dark.” It’s from an Italian photographer and, based on the photo tags, it’s burning steel wool. I’ve heard of other people taking photos like these and I think it’s something one of my photographer friends has been wanting to try.

“Light in the dark” photograph by By-Jo is in the public domain 

I don’t really own anything orange (unless you count my coral dress) but Jen pointed out that:

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 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 multiple necklaces or bangles. You could take a photo at dusk — to rage against the dying of the light. 😉 Lots of options!

I’m looking forward to finding a way to interpret this photograph….and it’s given me an idea for my next SIA pick, too!

Are you inspired to create an outfit? If so, just snap a photo and send it to Jen by next Monday evening, July 17th, so she can include it in the round-up on Tuesday.
