Three's a Charm

It's that time of the month again Ladies...and luckily for us it happens twice a month:  Style Imitates Art!  So without further ado, may I present to you, today's work of inspiration:

Two Girls in Bed by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

To see what I did (heh, heh, heh) stay tuned after the jump...

aha!  now we have 3 girls in bed


But to see what I'm actually wearing, which is after all the purpose of Style Imitates Art, here is a photo before I jumped into bed...

or maybe it was after...

I'm wearing a newly made top created from my old pillow cases.  (I'm not sure if it's done yet or if it needs tweeking.)  A bit of lace as a necklace/ scarf thingy, my refashioned skirt from the last SIA, and pantaloons made previously from mom's old kitchen curtains.  And that's a bit of true love's painting over my shoulder.

While I'm at it, I'm going on over to Patti's at Not Dead Yet Style and Monday Mingle.  Join us won't you?  Also, check out Recycled Fashion and Refashion Co-op.

  1. I really like these white and ivory laces and things. And I *love* Style Imitates Art.

    Thanks so much for the Liebster Award! You are too kind. And thanks for participating in Visible Monday; I always look forward to your creations.

    1. Me too, it makes me do things I wouldn't have thought of otherwise - Style Imitates Art, that is.

      And thank you, Patti for Visible Mondays. It's what got me started taking pictures of me wearing what I made. Before that I just took shots of the clothes on hangers!

    1. Well, I wasn't really posing with that bed head look. Unless you mean the one of me actually in the bed - that took a little positioning to fit in!

  3. Pao, you're just so darn creative, but I guess you hear that several times a day, right? Well, I thought I say it anyway.
    By the way, how is your name pronounced? Is it like the word "pow" or more like pay-o?

    1. I pronounce it like the Tao or "pow." But actually it's really just my initials. Speaking of creative, you blow me away with every post, each one completely different in style (and I'm not even talking about the outfit!) and entrancing as a narrative. I'm hook on you, girl.

  4. I love that you made a top out of pillowcases and bloomers out of curtains! I thought when I first saw the photo that you might have been wearing vintage Victorian nightwear with all those pretty trims.

    1. Well it was vintage alright, just not nightwear originally. More like domestic linens, I think you'd have to say.

    1. Hmmm, I still don't know if it works...maybe I need to shorten it...?

  6. Since I'm a fan of vintage, your newly created top made from old pillowcases makes me want to transform some of mine into something to wear. If I could sew, which I used to do when I was in high school. But not now. So I guess I'll just have to admire your latest surprises from afar and be good with that.

    1. I bet you have some beauties and tablecloths too. Hey, sewing is like riding a bicycle, you know. And a pillow case into top...what could be easier?

  7. A top made of pillowcases!!! Perfect! I love reading about what your garments were in their previous incarnations!

  8. You crack me up! So creative, even the way you blended the same textures in. Love it!!! I'd vote for you if there was a contest. ;) Very nice!

    Did you make your vest yet?

    1. So observant...

      Your vest is on my list. I was doing that pillow case top, and then I have a Tamera-influenced jewelery piece listed...oh, and a pieced t-shirt tunic...

  9. Three's a crowd? Your pose is perfect here, and your photo-shopping is superb. I wouldn't have even noticed that you weren't part of the original. This required a double-take. I love how you take anything and create something more beautiful from it. I always get the sewing bug in the fall.

    1. Oh, is that what the saying is? And I hear you're a good sewer - not seamstress or sewist or anything fancy-smancy like that. I did like your sew a button on the collar to adjust the fit refashion.
