Building a Wardrobe Inspired by A Painting

Vincent van Gogh was a master colorist. One of my favorite fashion sites is titled The Vivienne Files. The blogista, Janice Riggs, is a genius at choosing clothing capsules which make terrific ensembles, but her post from December 2012 is still a classic, mainly because she uses one of my favorite Van Gogh paintings as the starting point. What a smart way to put together a good looking, classic outfit. See more of her "Start with Art" capsules at She has been inspired by many paintings.

 Vincent Van Gogh's Les Bateaux brings together

sand, sky, and deep water - the perfect juxtaposition of 
cool and warm colors...

C'est bonne, n'est pas? BBL
