Style Imitating Art: The Roses of Heliogabalus

2016_06_08What I Wore to Work Today: Wednesday, June 8, 2016
Dress: Target
Shoes: Payless

Salazar at 14 Shades of Grey selected this week’s Style Imitating Art piece: The Roses of Heliogabalus by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. My initial reaction was that I don’t have anything pink or tan or brown (I still haven’t worn the cognac heels I bought from Target months ago to fill the gap in my dressy footwear wardrobe, a gap I have since realized was because I don’t need brown shoes) or anything delicate and flowery or with sumptuous draping or that could be a nod to the marble pillars.

I stood in my closet, looking through my clothes to double-check that I would skip this one. “Oh, I guess this dress has some pink in it… and the pattern looks like it could easily be a blizzard of blush and dark pink petals. Oh hey yeah this works.”
