CHALLENGE: Mickalene Thomas.

I'm excited to announce the inaugural Artfully Awear Challenge!
I've chosen a work of art (below) for inspiration, and dare you to style an outfit influenced by it: a direct representation of the work or a subtle nod to the color, form, feeling of the piece.  Take a photo of your look and send it to artfullyawear@gmail.com by midnight EST on Friday, November 22nd.
I'll post all of the photos here, and challenge one entrant to choose the next inspirational work.

For the first challenge, I've chosen a piece by one of my favorite contemporary artists, Mickalene Thomas.  This untitled work is made with rhinestones, glitter, acrylic, enamel, pastel, charcoal, graphite, and oil on wood panel.  
Mickalene Thomas, Untitled #4, 2013
I can't wait to see your photos!
Plainness in clothing is the enemy of art.

  1. I love this. I assume it's unisex, so I will be submitting, and I shared on FB.

  2. Excellent! And darn it- I just passed up a thrift shop dress that was the sartorial embodiment of this piece! :(
