Checking in from my short trip to Florida with this week’s Style Imitating Art choice from Salazar. I didn’t get chance to post my outfit from the last challenge, but you can see a photo of it in flat-lay form over on Jen’s blog.
Anyway, this week Salazar chose an iconic painting: dogs playing poker!
Why did she choose this? Because the Lunar New Year festival is coming up, and it’s the Year of the Dog, Salazar wanted artwork featuring dogs. She finally settled on “A Bold Bluff,” one of the paintings in C. M. Coolidge’s “Dogs Playing Poker” series. (Did you know that it was a series?! Read all about its fascinating history here.)
Greens, browns, reds, white along with quite a few details make for a variety of options from which to pick when putting together an outfit. I have some ideas already and of course I’ll be featuring Chewie. Although, I doubt I can get him to play poker with me.
Want 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, Salazar, at 14shadesofgreyblog@14 Shades of Grey, on Feb. 7th.by next Tuesday, Feb. 6th. Salazar will then post the SIA round-up on her blog,
