African mask, beads and artwork from google
Today I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a class trip. I did wear a black shirt though because at 5:30 am this outfit combination was kind of intimidating, I think it still is a little bit. Anyway, so the whole vibe of going to an art museum triggered the art section of my brain and I instantly thought of pairing both of these pieces. They both give me a tribal-ish vibe and so I figured they would go together. It was pretty cold of corse being NYC in late fall so I had a jacket, knit tights and boots on, but I'm not wearing the jackets and you can't see the bottom part but I thought I would mention it to give a full outfit description.
The inspiration I found was mostly very colorful pieces. Although my outfit features mainly green based earth tones (I guess the yellow pops a bit but it's still in the realm)
to me it appears very colorful, probably because of the multiple patterns or something asdfghjkl; i don't really know. OK. So I chose very vibrant, straight to the point primary colored ( a little nod to the title. anyone? anyone?! ) art which I think goes quite nicely with my outfit. Also I added a lot of masks 1, because I found them very interesting and 2, I like how they appear to be wooden which ties in with the natural brown tones in my outfit.
Wow I really like my writing today. I'm loving my blog more and more each post.
Now it's 9:55, and I've been working at my art studio all evening trying to get this project done (you'll see it eventually). I should probably begin my homework right about now then...
