Primavera [SIA Post]

Style Imitating Art

Co-host Salazar is currently traveling in Cuba and she found this sculpture along the way. It’s titled “Primavera”, which means Spring. Appropriate for the time of year, yes?

Cuban artist Rafael San Juan created this sculpture by working with a Cuban ballerina. My favorite line from this interview with the artist? “One of the suggestions [the ballerina] made was not to have her looking down, as here women are strong, they confront happiness, work, problems head-on.”

Love it!

I’m thinking that this might finally be my chance to showcase my poncho I purchased this winter at Moonfish (which, by the way, has another pop-up coming up soon).

What about you? Does this sculpture bring any outfits of your own to mind? If so, put it on, snap a photo, and send it to by next Tuesday, March 20th.

Happy Style Imitating Art interpretation day! Also known as currently the only time I post. I’d say I’m sorry but, hey, it’s my blog and I do what I want!

Also, to be honest, the only reason this outfit got photographed at all is because on Sunday I showered and put myself together so I could go to a cooking class with my mom. We attended a class called “Bagels and Brunch” and, yes, we made bagels.

Anyway, since I was up and showered and put-together, I was able to throw together this outfit and snap some photos.

As a reminder, this is the artwork we’re imitating this week:

I realized that I don’t have really any dresses that are appropriate for both A. this time of year and B. this artwork. So, instead, I fixated on my new velvet blush flats. New, in that I got them at a clothing swap and they’re in almost perfect condition.

Of course Chewie joined me. He didn’t have anything super appropriate to wear, but he wanted to be in the pictures anyway. Kids, am I right?

I’ve worn a similar color combo before when I paired this blush top with my olive green pants. Clearly I like blush and olive green together!

Chewie, on the other hand, was much more interested in what the neighbors were doing across the street. 

If you’re more interested in participating than Chewie is, you can still take a photo of an outfit you wore that was inspired by this week’s artwork and send it to Jen at!
