Our Philosophy for Marvelous Monday: Monday is nobody's favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We're on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously! Be sure to check out the other blogs, links will be provided at the bottom.
Today's challenge is to be inspired by art. I don't know that there is anything particularly arty about the dress, by my purse is definitely art. It is a replica of Botticelli's Birth of Venus painting. I've always loved Renaissance art, and specifically this painting; so about 10 years ago when I was attending the the Shakespeare Festival in Oregon and saw this purse I had to have it. My purse is now beat up, faded, and slightly stained, but I don't think I could ever get rid of this one. The last art inspired piece is the shoes because they remind me of a Monet floral painting, although a little more abstract.
