Building a Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with Art Part 2: Portrait of Pablo Picasso by Juan Gris

Mmmm, Cubism... it forces us to look at things in a different way, and that's bound to be a good idea...

Remember the author/art dealer from the class reunion?

When she left the reunion, she had only a few days left to pack before she had to prepare for a big art show in Milan...

She's devoted to beige and brown, and her blue eyes insist on blue accents. The show will be casual, dressy, classic, avant-garde, and everything in between. So she's just going to dress like herself, and let everyone else do the posturing...

The brocade shroud, the military uniform, the obsessive caressing of a VERY inappropriate pet are NOT for her...

Let them be all artsy and fey and scattered; she's going to be meticulously organized, and single-minded in getting the work done.

Six months from now, her gallery will have exclusive rights with the hottest new artist in Europe, and everybody else from the art show won't even remember meeting her...

  1. This is really one of my favorites. I could see an art dealer wearing the blue T-shirt with the blue skirt and the leather jacket over it. Kind of sweet-tough.

  4. Janice,
    This was my color scheme, done in a totally casual way for packing to accompany my husband on a long weekend fishing trip in Ontario, Canada , this past weekend. At one time I would have just thrown some random pieces together, but no more ! While I was fishing camp relaxed, casual, and appropriate, and the only woman there, other than the owner/cook, and the cleaning help, I still felt happily coordinated. Maybe it was silly to be so selective at such a place where it really didn't matter how I looked, but I cared, and it was great practice for packing ! I thought of you each time I looked at my selections !

  7. Yes, all of this is wonderful and I would love to own this whole selection. Your story almost eclipses the wardrobe. Also, a thought. Some of us have very symmetrical faces and others have faces almost like the cubist painting. I am thinking that maybe our clothes could echo our unique type of symmetry???
