It’s the final Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge for 2017! For this style challenge, SIA co-founder Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey chose the inspiration artwork.
Salazar picked an amazing photo from a series called “Roots” by Spanish photographer Miguel Vallinas, a series which depicts people in outfits with flowers for their heads. Salazar was drawn to the series for its striking — and stylish! — effect, and you can learn more about the meaning of the series here in this article.
There are a lot of photos in the series, which you can see more of here, but Salazar chose the “Number 24” photo, a combo that includes a blue gingham shirt, a long cardigan, and a head of purple-colored flowers, all against a black backdrop. Below is a detail from the inspiration photo, but you can see the full photo here.
How to participate in SIA:
Everyone — bloggers, non-bloggers, all genders, all ages, even pets! — is welcome to participate. Just send a pic of an outfit — selfies and flat lays are also just fine — inspired by this week’s SIA artwork to this week’s curator, Salazar, at firstname.lastname@example.org by next Tuesday, December 19th, and Salazar will post the round-up on the 20th on her blog, 14 Shades of Grey.
Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with for this final SIA challenge for the year!
