Here is the outfit I put together inspired by his depiction of death by rose petals:
Outfit details: top ~ JC Penney's; cardigan ~ thrifted;
skirt ~ JC Penney's; earrings ~ old; bracelet ~ thrifted.
My participation in SIA challenges is sporadic at best; it only happens if I am struck with an idea for an outfit instantly upon seeing the artwork. It would probably be good for me to stretch my imagination a bit and go for it each time the challenge is issued. But the perfectionist in me says not to join in unless I can come up with a very relevant outfit and a proper backdrop. The soft colors and flowy vibe of this skirt, top, and cardi reflect the painting well. And is this not the perfect backdrop for The Roses of Heliogabalus?
Not very graceful, admittedly! And I completely forgot to take pictures later on Sunday to show the sandals, so you'll have to use your imagination.
Thank you so much, T, for taking photos for me; it was fun! Especially the silly poses:
