WIW: Picasso 5, The Dream

I wanted to echo the lightness of her clothes in this painting, so I chose to wear white, light blue and light green.  She has a strong colored background, which I'm representing with my burgundy hair, and a brightly colored necklace, which I'm representing with my toes, even though they're covered.

These jeans are a recent Goodwill acquisition that I decided to try bleaching.  They didn't turn out fabulous (the stitching is dark, and the bleaching showed up a couple of stains, and they bleached to a very pale yellow-green), so probably won't be staying in my wardrobe all that long.  But I thought I'd give them a whirl today, since I have very little white to try to emulate the dress, but wanted to do something with light spring colors.

Does this work okay, and how can I improve it?  
#1 - light blue, light green and white, with light blue shoes
#2 - same, but with silver shoes
#3 - the toes

Thanks for a terrific challenge Angie!  I had so much fun with it!  Even more fun than planning out my own outfits has been seeing everyone's versions!

    One of my favourite colour palettes - and looks gorgeous on you Amy! Love the softness of this outfit.

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Please keep those jeans. The fit looks great and in the photo they look crisp. You may love the pale green as a neutral, especially with blue. Great interpretation.

    Wonderful spring hues, and I can clearly see the inspiration of the painting in this.

    The toes are amazing!  I'm envious of everyone who already has their "Spring feet" ready!  I still have "remodeling feet," and any  paint on them is accidental!

    The toes are stickers - like Jamberry, but an off (cheap) brand.  The quality is clearly less than Jamberry, but so is the price.  :)  I got them for Christmas, and finally found the perfect use for them :)

    It's hard to see minor defects you describe on the photos but the jeans are VERY flattering. Love the whole outfit with silver shoes, and you got so creative with the toes! Wonderful.

    Amy, you are looking so fab these days I can't even stand it! And what a fun idea to have your pretty toes stand in for the necklace in the painting!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Great colour interpretation. FABULOUS toes. I like the shoes in #1 a little more. How about a little semi tuck? 

  • texstyle replied 5 years ago

    Looks good Amy!  I'd also try semi tucking the top and rolling the pants up maybe just to see (unless they are flared, can't tell from the pics) - and I prefer it with the shoes in #1.

    The silver, blue and pale green is really good. And the nail art impressive (!)

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    I like both of these renditions.  The jeans look good from here.  The colors of your outfit are so soft and pretty.  Fun toes!

    I've been absent from the site for awhile, and was just scrolling through your blog. I love how your style is developing. You look fantastic, and I'm so impressed with how you take on, and are successful with all the challenges. You are an inspiration.

    I was thinking the same thing Angie said (really!)--I like the outfit and would like to see the shirt semi-tucked. Your nails are awesome! I also like the blue shoes, but the silver go nicely, too.
