Picasso Challenge: The Charnel House

I can't let a great challenge go by. Especially not when I saw that Joy was managing out of her suitcase! 

Here's my offering. Full disclosure, I won't be wearing the shoes for the day; I'll change into my white Cons for walking. These are pretty good for comfort, but not great on slippery stone. 

Thanks, Angie, for the amazing challenge, and thanks to the rest of you for your inspiring interpretations. I may not comment on all threads but I am going to try to peek at them! So far, I am in awe of your creativity and thoughtfulness.

    You look as chic, modern and fabulous as ever. Well done managing the challenge from your suitcase only. Both the pattern mix and the warm and cool greys mimic the elements in the painting, and the dark and white grounds it perfectly.

    Awesome interpretation out of the suitcase! I think the cons will look great with this outfit too. You look great, Suz.

  • Sal replied 7 years ago

    Well done, you look wonderful and I love the outfit. Perfect for travel explorations!!

  • Karie replied 7 years ago

    What a great job, especially since you're doing this from your suitcase. The gray stripes in your shirt echo the charcoal in the painting.

  • Summer replied 7 years ago

    This is a wonderful outfit, Suz.  I'm so impressed that both you and Joy are able to participate in this challenge from your travel capsules - amazing.

    You (& Joy) blow me away - great interpretation Suz. How's the passport situation?

  • Windchime replied 7 years ago

    I'm so impressed that you managed to put this together from your suitcase! The soft neutrals look lovely on you. Is the painting you're standing near a Picasso?

    Oh, wow, I totally forgot the challenge, still yesterday was dressed alike it, even unconsciously!! AS ALWAYS love your version, totally suzpicassciously:-)  but it's first time I see  a coat worn to a peep toe. Wait, are you in Israel already??  Will you really wear the coat on top of this outfit? There is a milder weather where you are ...just wondering:-)

    What an awesome interpretation from your suitcase! Hope the passport situation is slowly getting resolved.

  • approprio replied 7 years ago

    Two thumbs up from me. Super nice practical touring outfit, I bet it will look great with your chucks too. Have a lovely time, and hope your docs get sorted quickly!

  • Jaime replied 7 years ago

    Suz I don't know how you managed it from your suitcase but well done! You look fab!

    Great looking outfit!  I'm not following the challenge so have no idea what the picture is, but regardless, this is lovely.   Loving your lighter blonde hair too !

  • jackiec replied 7 years ago

    Way to go, Suz! From a suitcase! You look sharp and fresh. Enjoy your day.

  • texstyle replied 7 years ago

    Great job suz - and your hair is lighter isn't it?

  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago

    So impressive that you can put this together out of your suitcase!  I like the greys and the pattern mixing with the stripes and scarf.  It evokes the straight lines and curves of the painting.

  • Neel replied 7 years ago

    And you do no wrong :-) ... Nice pattern mixing ... and looking gorgeous as ever!

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    Wooohooo. You are participating from Israel. How fun is that. (Hope you're getting your new passport soon). 

    A FABULOUS interpretation, Suz. I am much impressed you pulled the look out of your suitcase. WELL DONE. 

    (You know you had me with the white jeans. The new sandals look amazing with them). 

  • Carole replied 7 years ago

    Gorgeous combo! Amazing that you could come up with such a great interpretation out of your a suitcase..impressive!

  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    SO FAB! You look chic and polished!

  • Susie replied 7 years ago

    This is a great look, Suz, both the outfit and as an interpretation. And do I have to say that I love your shoes?!

  • merwoman replied 7 years ago

    Fabulous!! Is that a Chagall hanging on the wall behind you :-)

  • Diana replied 7 years ago

    So impressed that you and Joy are doing this out of travel wardrobes!  I really like those soft greys on you.

    Hope the passport situation is resolved!

    Great translation of the lines (gray and white striped tee) and color-blocked forms (shoes, jacket, pants, scarf) of the painting.   I think the fact that the painting has both curves and angles makes it a little more challenging but this outfit captures it.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 7 years ago

    This outfit is lovely, Suz! You wear these neutrals with such grace. I'm impressed at you and Joy for rising to the challenge while traveling.

  • viva replied 7 years ago

    Now I feel really lame for not participating!!! You look luminous in this picture. Lovely interpretation of the painting - hope you are having a wonderful time.
