Dot, Dot, Dot...

 ~ Lichtenstein painting and moi ~
Yes, that's me merging into the dots of a Lichtenstein landscape painting, one of 160 pieces in a retrospective now showing at the Art Institute of Chicago.  Don't you think we're both working the Japanese theme in a satisfying way?  yeah.

I'm wearing a kimono dress made from my fabric stash using the I Am Cute Dresses

Japanese sewing book, which I then reworked.  The peace sign necklace is mine from the 60's as is the Indian ring/bracelet combo.  The cropped pants and silver shoes were both store-bought ages ago. 

Anyway, I'm going with this to Patti's at Not Dead Yet Style and Monday Mingle, so join me and all the others, for a visual feast.  Oh, and I'm trying out Pleated Poppy for the first time too, even thought it's way past Wednesday...

  1. Loving the cool colors today, Pao. And the peace necklace. I have a small collection of them, but none as bold as this. Thanks so much for sharing your artistic fabulousness with Visible Monday.

    1. That was the only peace sign jewelry I had or have. But I did where a pant and tunic top made from a stretchy knit woven fabric that was - yep - peace signs. In a subtle way, of course.

  2. You left me the sweetest comment on my blog today, thank you so much! I'm still struggling with this cold but at least today I got dressed. A Chinese top today!

    You've had some of these pieces for a long time. That means to me that you've stayed true to yourself all this time and knew who you were back then. Wonderful! I have strayed so many times trying to find myself on the outside just so I can stop thinking about it. But I find that not only do I enjoy it, I've always loved the looks of the 70's.
    Mostly likely be seeing you on the next Inspired by Art challenge, eh?
    Have a wonderfully stylish week in your wonderfully stylish clothing!!

    1. Yes, I can't wait to see what the next inspiring painting will be. Truth be told, I keep going back to check and see if they've put it up yet...sometimes I find I have to make something up from my stash just for the occasion! Here's to feeling the best!

  3. Okay, this is a Positively Perfect Post (aka PPP). I love the juxtaposition of the outfit and art, creating a whole new piece of art. That being said, what else can I say? PPP.

    1. And likewise Style Agent 909, every set of your photos tells a story. Not literally, but aesthetically or conceptually. Very cool.

  6. Your eye for color is flawless, as is that kimono dress. It flows perfectly with the cropped pants.

    I had a peace sign necklace in the 60's too, but who knows where it is after the many moves over the decades. Good to see that you have one to display with your amazing ensemble.

    1. It's all just 50 shades of grey or so...(heh, heh)

      I know, it's weird how there's some things I've kept all this time, and others I remember and would love to have now, and I just let them go without a second thought.

    1. I can't wait either...my sewing has been a bomb lately.

      Just got back from a visit to Mom's and I was so disappointed to find out she had given away all her old jewelry. Darn, I was really looking forward to it. I remembered going through her vanity as a kid fantasizing over it...ah well.
