My middle-grade debut, RUBY REINVENTED, is out in the world today!
We’re holding the book launch party at the spectacular Camden Public Library in Camden, Maine on Friday, November 6. The evening will include a fashion show with readers ages 9-13. Since Ruby designs clothes to fit the personality of the individual wearing them, the kids in the fashion show will choose an outfit that they feel fits their personality.
Here at Kidliterati, we’re doing the same thing! At our virtual fashion show, your favorite Kidliterati bloggers share their favorite outfits, and tell us why those outfits suit them (pun intended).

This is my favorite houndstooth tweed jacket. There are ripping seams, but I just mend them and patch when needed. I love wearing a structured jacket. Helps pull me together, especially for those days when I'm not feeling so "together.”
For me, the clothes don't matter. Any old shirt is fine, and a pair of jeans preferably not on their first day from the dryer. The thing I wear to make me feel like me are my hiking boots. I bought them nearly 20 years ago and they've taken me to the tops of mountains and the bottoms of canyons. They feel more like my feet than my real feet do.
Here's a goofy Halloween snap of me as Gerrard the Headbanger. For someone who thinks too much and works too hard, it's fun being Gerrard, because even though he's not too smart, he knows how to have a good time! :-)

These clothes fit my personality because they let me be tough and playful at the same time. Also, because I practice yoga in them, which is where I connect with my inner self.
How about a huge round of applause for my fellow Kidliterati bloggers. Aren’t they fabulous?
Feel free to let us know what outfit fits your personality!
