Looks from Books: The Goldfinch


For the month of June in Delicious Reads Book Club we are reading the Pulitzer Prize Winning book: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
Much of this book takes places in art galleries and centers around a young boy named Theo who loses his family at a young age. Theo desperately clings to a small painting that reminds him of his mother and the life he had before everything changed in the blink of an eye.
“This is just about the first painting I ever really loved,” his mom tell him as she pauses in front of a tiny canvas.
-Original painting done by Dutch painter, carel fabritus in 1654
 This goldfinch painting leads Theo to the underground art world where he finds intrigue and danger!
I wanted to use the setting of an art gallery to take photographs for this book and then put together a look I would wear to an art gallery. I found this gorgeous red dress via J Crew for under $30 and paired it with nude heels, a sparkly cardigan, a crisp white handbag and a simple tasseled silver necklace. These pictures were taken at an art museum, just west of Temple Square in Salt Lake City.
