Impressionist Vintage Spring Outfit
Today I come to you with an Impressionist vintage inspired outfit for balmy spring days. I think there is a close connection between art, music and fashion style.
Last year I was on a photo walk in my city. The Neustadt in Hamburg has some Venice vibes but also a distinct Impressionist touch. I feel the pictures are impressionistic because of the light colour palette and the moods captured.
Reflets Dans L’eau
I am a great fan of Debussy. His music is also associated with the Impressionist movement of the mid 19th century.
I was instantly reminded of ‘Reflets dans l’eau’ when I saw this picture.
Here I am wearing a 1950s style swing dress by Hell Bunny which I got via TopVintage. It is the Yoko swing dress I suppose. I very much love the subtle Japanese inspired print and the springlike colours. Thus, I adore the predominant mint blue colour.
I combined this dress with my lovely summer straw hat by Firenze Italy. By the way, I thrifted this amazing hat last year at an Oxfam shop. I love the pale yellow roses and the tulle veil. I’ve also combined this hat with the Lisa-Mae dress by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury.
In fact, I’ve worn this hat quite a lot for photoshootings last year. However, I must admit that in daily life I don’t really wear it. I am still a bit self-conscious when it comes to wearing extravagant hats.
Afternoon of a Faun
However, I also feel like a faun when wearing this dress! I guess the rich pastel colours brighten my mood. Indeed, I shine and feel as majestic as a faun. Do you know Debussy’s ‘Prelude to the afternoon of a faun’?
This expresses exactly how I feel in this outfit. It is just beautiful and perfect!
Summing up, I quite enjoy drawing parallels between art, classical music and fashion. I love it when outfits are an reflection of art. What do you think? Please let me know in the comments below!
