A Young Girl Reading | Style Imitating Art

Happy Style Imitating Art Day! This week we are getting our sartorial mitts on “A Young Girl Reading“ byJean-Honoré Fragonard. This one was pretty easy as it plays with two of my favorite colors. Yellow and mauve is a color combo that sits nicely in my heart as it is just so soft and pleasant.

I also enjoyed how the collar on my top, which is actually a dress, is a modern take on the collar the girl wears in the painting. I would have worn just the yellow dress, but it fits poorly and there are not many tweaks known to me that make it look decent. I can't alter it myself because the construction is a bit complicated and yet, I can't let it go. It was my favorite dress for years and I've never seen it's equal. So, it will remain in my closet, occasionally serving as a top until some other factor pops up and allows me to do something definitive with it.

My shoes don't fit well either. But, they're yellow too. So, obviously they must stick around, as well.

Make sure to check out Jen's blog for the full round-up of art inspired looks!
