12. Dressing Up The Jeff Koonesque Way...

... if that even is a word. I love SIA for their challenges! It really gets your creative juices flowing when you have to dress in a way that would reflect a painting.
Here is this week's inspiration, a giant red and pink and flashy gold bow by Jeff Koons.

What is a girl to do whose favorite color is grey? Answer: she'll dig deep into her closet, she'll get creative and pair together items that were probably never meant to go ... that is the genious behind this challenge!


So, for color's sake, I paired together a silk dress that isn't even a dress but just two giant scarves sewn together, a pair of red gold earrings (very mod!), a red and pink ring



a clutch with golden accents,



and because the outfit already had a flapper feeling to it, I donned on a recently thrifted vintage pair of Clarks.


Want to see the outfit?



 I love it. Thank you SIA! This was fun.

dress: Zara (thrifted 2013)
shoes: Clarks (thrifted 2013)
clutch: Promod (2012)
earrings and necklace: Designer's Market Blickfang (Vienna 2012)

    1. Thank you Ann, the ring is my favorite, too. It's almost like having two rings, one pink, one red.

    1. Scarves do have possibilities. This one came ready, but I am imagining two different ones put together could look nice, too.

  4. A change is often necessary but seldom done. That said, I am not ready to part with grey, yet.

    1. Thank you Becky! I ended up liking the dress very much, though in the beginning I couldn't have cared less... Oh, woman's mind and all that!

  9. That scarf dress is right up my alley! I love how the borders accentuate the (so-called) style lines. Rectangular garments are the best! You look fantastic.

    1. It gave me the kicks to read I look petite. I always try to dress "slim" since my BMI is in the orange sector... apparently I am doing something right - yay thanks!
