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.
