Women in Clothes Project #1- My favorite outfits

This year I discovered a book titled Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, Leanne Shapton and 639 others. Totally unlike any other book I've read related to fashion, it was researched and written by a group of women interested in the concept of personal style and what that means. They interviewed over 600 women from all over the world and all walks of life. The interview questions were thought provoking and the responses even more so.  I decided to use the book as an outline to better understand my own relationship to clothes and personal style. Please feel free to join me by answering the question in the comments sections. I'd love to hear from you!

My favorite style is a layered multi-textural look. Over the years I've taken photographs of my favorite outfits to refer to when I'm feeling uninspired. There are days that I look in my closet and just don't have the energy to pull a new look together. Referring to these photos helps. I keep mine in a Pinterest folder but you can create a folder on your phone, as well.

Truth be told, she wasn't coming higher up to see me, she was coming higher up to take a gander at her Kimberlys®, set aside her dry-cleaned ones, watch that the moth balls were working and none of them (they were totally made of fleece) were getting neglected (god help our family if that always occurred, she would groan despondently forever). My mom invested more energy holding with the Kimberlys® in her storage room throughout the long term then she went through talking and holding with me. usa kilts
