Yellow + Blue = Green

My outfit was based on 
this style imitating art challenge.
That's when Salazar from 14 Shades of Grey
chooses a work of art to inspire an outfit.
Here's my version of the look.
To see how others imitated the art
go to:
SIA: Women of Substance.

Today's inspiration is:
Woman of Substance by Octavio Ocampo

My blouses: thrifted
My shoes: LuLu' (last year)

My art journal page from July 3, 2013
I've been feeling the color green lately.
On Sunday I got some ankle moss green boots
made of suede at the thrift store for $1.00.
In image I painted green nail polish, eyeliner, and shadow stick. I'm thinking I might wear my green eye make-up tomorrow.
I've been painting with green paint and ink too...


  1. Those shoes are lovely. It's really interesting to see how you interpreted the Art piece. What a great idea.

  2. It's perfect! And you look adorable in that hat!

  3. that's the first thing I learned in 1st grade art class. They even mixed paint to show us that it worked for real.

    Pretty mind-blowing stuff when you're six.

  4. such beautiful art journal page :) green indeed is a gorgeous colour and it reminds me of pure nature. grass, leaves, stuff like that. and I like the layering of your blue outfit. those skinnies suit you so well and especially in combination with your colourful shoes. oh and the first runway look is fabulous too! I'm loving those pants.

  5. This is one of my favourite outfits you've worn!! Love that blue, and your shoes are sooo cute, I need some now that Spring is here!
    You paid $1 for boots? Omg, I'M SO JEALOUS! I need to shop where you shop! That painting is divine! Also, did you wear that green eye make up?

  6. I love that blue tunic on you! I love how you drew inspiration from art.


  7. those jeans were made for your hot legs!!!! and the shoes are the perfect match!! you look great!

  8. Your top and jeans are really cute! I've been thinking about green as well. Weird. My grass is recovering from the summer and it's lovely to see green outside. Can't wait to see those moss green boots and your new artwork!

  9. That painting is really intriguing, the kind that really makes you stop and look at how the face is composed. It reminds me of (a less-creepy version of) Giuseppe Arcimboldo's work.

    Your legs look like they go for miles in this outfit! Great jeans.

  10. What a cool painting and you did a great job of interpreting it
    That green dress....totally calling my name

  11. Love this look! The shirt is super cute. The hat even resembles the shape of the flower petals in the painting (but then I'm probably looking too much into it, haha). I also can't wait to see these boots. They sound like my dream shoes. :)

  12. So beautiful inspired by green, such a happy and growful your journalpage with the zebra-prints and btw nice shoes ;) ♥ Conny

  13. Wow that is such a cool painting, I love it! You look great, love that blouse and your cute shoes :) Thanks for your kind comments recently, it means a lot!

  19. i'm really feeling that anna sui dress. would you believe I forgot to check out her fall 2013 collection?! I think your outfit channels the art quite well, you both have the same colour palette.
