Books as Outfits

How I dress is integral to how I experience and express my gender and mood. When I stand in front of my closet each morning, the process is intuitive. I check in with my body and move toward what I’m drawn to. Sometimes it’s a high-necked, long-sleeved, Victorian-esque shirt; other times it’s a flannel. I might feel bright, or melancholy, or powerful, or rooted, and the clothes I choose reflect that. For me, they are art. I was inspired to make these images by the Twitter hashtag #booksasoutfits, but after weeks of not dressing up to leave the house, it was also a damn good excuse to put on something fun and feel again.
