Women in Clothes Project #3 The Outfit in the Picture

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!

I wore this outfit to my friend Suzie's birthday party where the theme was "Dress Like Suzie." Suzie is a tall and beautiful ex-ballerina. The striped tights were my homage to her. She almost always wears striped tights and lots of flowing layers. The top and skirt are from Anthropologie. Vintage Vera chiffon head scarf and a fun neckpiece that was a gift from a good friend. So it was kind of a masquerade party and kind of a dress up party.  The parameters of the invitation provided a bit freedom in my choices. It was fun.
