The Art of Disguise

Style Imitating Art is due tonight for Tuesday's showing here.  Meanwhile, why not show myself off with the Visible gang at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style, says I?  Come on over and see what we're all up to.  While I'm at it, I'm going to slip into the crowd at Monday Mingle too.  The more the merrier. So, let's get this week rolling! 

Here's the inspirational artwork:
Tree of Life stained glass by Henri Matisse

See how I styled with it after the break...


Where's pao?

I'm at one with Matisse

I'm wearing a made-from-scratch and then re-altered kimono top and skirt you've seen before.  But come on, how could I not wear this for Matisse?!  I did change it up by donning my new mustard colored tights and my old painted sandals (Click on bold items to find out more about them.)

    1. Who knew one could so easily camouflage oneself in a Matisse? I mean really. Blogging is knowledge.
