I was so excited to see this week's pick for Style Imitating Art because it's such an incredible painting. The way the colors blend and move through the painting to create such a rich texture...ugh. I just can't get enough. It's certainly a treat for these ol' eyeballs. “Nocturne in Black and Gold: The Falling Rocket” by James Abbott McNeill Whistler also has a pretty cool history that's worth looking into if you're interested.
For my interpretation it was those swirling, mottled colors that I used to build my outfit. My galaxy print dress was an obvious choice with its cloudy nebula and speckles of stars. I added the mustard colored cardigan and the black accesories to bring it back to the colors of the painitng. This is definitely one of my favorite SIA interpretations!
Head on over to 14 Shade's of Grey to see everyone else's take on this beautiful painting.
