|Prinzessin Victoria Louise Poppy - Papaver orientalis by Colleen Parker|
|Scarf - Target, Cardigan - Target, Dress - Torrid, Brooch - Vintage, Boots - Payless|
Sooooo, I know this is very close to the outfit I wore for the last round of SIA. But, I didn't have much else to play with to achieve the color palette and feminine, organic quality of the painting for this week's SIA. So, suck it up, y'all.
I'm really not the kind of person that avoids wearing the same thing twice. If I love something I want to get as much use out of it as possible. This cardigan, for instance has been a very trusty companion for years and I've found a multitude of ways to wear it. I also think I lived in the dress all summer long. You might be able to tell by this point that I have a thing for lace dresses and it ain't goin' away!
I did try to give it a bit of a different look with the brooch and scarf though. It does take it in a little different direction.
I was really taken with the beauty of this painting, especially the different shades of orange and pink. I decided to use my make up to mimic some of the great color by keeping it overall natural and using bright coral pinks on my lips and cheeks. It brought a sense of life and freshness to my face that is reminiscent of the painting.
