National Gallery Victoria is currently running Triennial which is showcasing Art including painting, sculptures, film, drawings and architecture by over 100 artists from over the world. One of my friends suggested we head to NGV especially to see the floral modern art by a Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Little did we know that a casual visit to NGV would turn into an educational experience in Art.
Two Artists really stood out for me which were Yayoi Kusama and Ron Mueck. We first visited the space which I would call a Collection of Skulls a space created by Artist Ron Mueck. Skulls have always fascinated me. Their use in interiors and fashion ticks all the right boxes for me. I liked the randomly strewn gigantic skulls in bone white which made them look serene, if I may say so. We also liked a few paintings and sculptures by Uji Hahan that depicted nomads and wanderers.
Comfort was going to be essential as I knew I would be walking and standing throughout my time in NGV. It was a warm morning but by the late afternoon there was a nip in the air. My Outfit of the day was Blushed in Art. A thin cold shoulder sweater in Blush teamed with a skater skirt in peach and comfortable oxfords were perfect to enjoy my experience at NGV.
Outfit of the Day – Blushed In Art
Since there was a slight nip in the air, I wore a thin cold shouldered sweater with a deep V neckline in Blush by Tobi. I wore it with a lace bustier also in blush. The cold shoulder trend has been going strong since 2016. This trend is perfect for Pear shaped body types or apple shape body types as it takes attention away from the lower half of the body.
I wanted to keep the outfit very monotone and stay within the same colour family. So the entire look was in pastel hues of blush and a hint of peach.

It created a beautiful visual interest with the different shades of blush worn together. As you can see the skirt also added length to the ensemble. I paired the outfit with dangling earrings with cascading wire meshes in peach and a dull gold Coin ring by Lovisa. I wore blush oxfords to complete the look.
The hairdo was as always very simple. I side parted and brushed my hair into soft natural waves whereas the makeup was neutral with a deeper pink lip colour. I added darker kohl to the lower lashline for defined eyes and a double coat of mascara.
Today’s Outfit had different textures but staying within the same colour family and in pastel tones. I did not use any accessory here to make the look stand out. The beauty of the look was the Cold shoulder with a Deep V neckline Sweater by Tobi.
The skater skirt gave the sweater more length without vying for attention. It also gave it a subtle flare and added a bit of a girly charm. Similarly the oxfords gave the look a hint of androgyny which exuded strength and comfort. The dangling earrings with cascading wire meshes matched the tone of the skater skirt. They added a bit of my eclectic personality to the look. I was feeling a bit Artistic and Creative myself and NGV’s Triennial kind of inspired this look of the day.
