Style Imitating Art-Sweet Dreams by Rus Khasanov

Hello and welcome to a new round of Style Imitating Art!
About Style Imitating Art

Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey and me. Daenel had stepped away and we are looking for a new co-host. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspiration image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art-inspired outfits. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.

This Weeks Curator

Today, Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey is the curator.

This Week’s Inspirational Image

This round is a collection of works by visual artist Rus Khasanov, who uses household materials such as oil, soap, and paint to create these works of art. Everything is very colorful; a perfect way to start the new year. Take your pick and have fun.

Salazar picked these because they are obviously beautiful and she thought it’s the New Year after all, and we could do with some colors and glitter. The participants can pick a particular frame in the video or draw their inspiration from the entire video. Enjoy and have fun.

Send your inspirations to Salazar at by Tuesday, January 11th.

Would you like to join Salazar and me as a co-host for Style Imitating Art?

Daenel has decided to step away from being a co-host of Style Imitating Art and we are looking for a new partner. If you decide to join us, you would not need to have anything ready until the end of January. The actual publishing date is January 31st. Salazar has set the deadline for applications on January 21st.

I am just starting my second year as I was a new cohost who replaced Kim of Fierce Fashion. SIA really isn’t that labor-intensive and you get to show art or artists that you like. Once I got my first few posts set up, it was just a matter of copying and pasting and with three co-hosts the hosting duty is a light load and not overwhelming.

The most nerve-racking part for me is making sure that I don’t miss any of the emails from contributors!

Three co-hosts are needed to make this thing work or at least that is my opinion.

If you are interested, please drop a note to Salazar at

Happy New Year everyone and here’s to a year of great art and styling.

Today, Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey is the curator.

    1. Thank you Emmylou. I had not seen his art either until Salazar sent it to me for the challenge. I have a silk scarf that I painted in a Square Tetrad color combination and can’t wait to to use it in this challenge.
