Style Imitating Art formed when Salazar and I had similar ideas to base our outfits off artistic inspiration. I had the structure figured out, while Salazar had the motivation, and between us Style Imitating Art was born. Every other week, we swap selection and hosting duties, and each post goes up on Monday. For a detailed schedule and more information about the impetus behind SIA, read this post. We are always interested in thinking outside the box, and we welcome suggestions of traditional and nontraditional art to incorporate into SIA!
