Style Imitating Art - The Curator

PICT0024cas

My sister thinks this dress is something a museum curator would wear, so it's a fitting one to start a new project with!

I've been following Jess' blog, Animated Cardigan for a very long time now and she and a blog friend, Salazar set up the Style Imitating Art series, where they allow themselves to be inspired by a work of art they choose, and dress up accordingly.

This time the painting in focus was a Klimt piece, who I really really love, namely The Portrait of Emilie Flöge, so I decided to finally take part. :)


I wish I had a dress just like hers...
You can check out all the other bloggers and their inspired outfits at Salazar's blog soon -we're in very different timezones, so I guess a few hours after my post is up. :)

These rings are handmade by a friend of mine who I've known since we were both 6! She became a very talented jewellery maker specializing in enamel and copper. I've made the earrings. :)

Hello lovely lady. I've been absent for a while but am back full force now and I missed seeing photos of you and reading your blog. (: You are looking awesome in that dress, I have to admit. 

Madeline Quaint said...

That artwork is SO you! And I think you transferred into your outfit very well. Bleh, my English is a bit off today. I might just have to shut up, haha. Hope you are doing well! xo Nikki

Your outfit is beautiful and matches perfectly with the art...what a great idea!

This is such a cool idea! I'm not much of an art professional but I know and like Kliemt and I think your attempt on styling your dress according to his painting worked great! I especially love the little detail of the crossed straps at the cleavage!

the dress is pretty, the print on it is awesome!! so much going on!

Madeline Quaint said...

It's definitely a great idea - not mine though, the credit goes to Jess and Salazar. :) But it's great to take part! :)

When I saw this dress in the second hand shop I knew I had to buy it. It's a Scandinavian brand I've never heard of. The joys of thrifting. :)

I also tried to find your C&A cardigan, but no luck... Anyway, bought a Nice dress instead. :)

It would be fitting for a museum curator, right? Like a few paintings suddenly jumped on me and the patterns got jumbled. :D
