Oh gosh! Sometimes the themes for our monthly Fab 40s collaboration are truly outfits I would wear. Take for example last month’s leather and lace, yes I would wear that outfit; or even the month before with plaid in December, again, I would definitely wear that! But this month’s theme, I am not so sure. Samantha called “pop art,” and I definitely used my librarian research skills for this one. I was not sure what to do! And I know I wasn’t the only one proven by our email strand going back and forth as to what we should all wear. Sam, you got us good this time around! I should take that back: it’s not like we’re trying to stump one another, but a good challenge was surely set. When setting out to dress in “pop art,” I wanted to incorporate both red and blue with hints of yellow. Those are the colors I think of when this art style is mentioned. While I love each of my pieces individually, I cannot say I’d wear this “pop art” outfit all together as one. The shoes are always on repeat, the skirt is leopard so I love it, and I made the shirt so it’s a fave. I also made the clutch just for this post, and I did buy the shirt which I do adore and will definitely wear again. (I used to have a crop top version that I got rid of long ago.) I just don’t think I’d pile all this pop into one outfit.
What do you think of a “pop art” outfit would you wear it all at once or individually? In my opinion I over did it! What do you think?
Shall we see how the others interpreted “pop art” style? Let’s start with the one who chose the theme:
I have to say I was very surprised by Samantha’s interpretation. I don’t know what I was expecting but I really appreciate how toned down her look is. Granted she’s in bright pink trousers, yellow socks, and blue cluth, but that’s nothing new with bold Sam. And the super cute tee is totally wearable. Nice job Samantha! Just a normal outfit for Samantha I believe.
Ok, I have a crush on this month’s guest. Samantha invited Lisa of The Sequinist. I mean, come on, a brand and blog name cannot get any better The Sequinist! Can you imagine her wardrobe? Oh, to get a glimpse!! Well, simply follow her blog and everything about her. And this outfit, wow! What a winner!! I’d wear it head to toe–op! Except, those heels, which are stunning, I’d never be able to pull off. I’d have to switch out for some trainers.
Ok, before I comment on Sheela’s outfit, I must mention how svelte she is looking. Sheela has dropped so many pounds it’s inspirational! Next March will mark two years of the Fab 40s, and it’s safe to say she’s transformed her body–and legs! Look at how toned they are!! Right on Sheela. Now, I think you and I belong in the same camp throwing together everything kitschy that we could. Would you wear your outfit Sheela? Just curious….
Mary, your coat is so cute! And I really wish I could see this adorable gingham dress in all its glory. Also you’ve got such a cute clutch and pumps. Super outfit here Mary!
Jennie, you too, I love the pops of color in this outfit. The skirt, tights, pumps, and that clutch! All of your are making me rethink my approach to “pop art.” You truly are adorable!! Nice outfit.
Ok, I’m guilty: I did save my favorite for last. Look at the simplicity of this outfit. AND, she DIYd the sweatshirt. Plus, she’s wearing tennis shoes–my all time fave. Diane, you nailed the “pop art” theme in my book. Right on girl!
And Me, Ann
What do you think of everyone’s “pop art” stylings? Do you have a favorite? Which one?
