looking for the instagram account where, as @amywearsboots, I post endless self-portraits at the intersection of fashion, fetish, feminism and fantasy? Yes, I do take those pics myself (unless otherwise credited), yes, I do style myself, yes, I am open to collabs in which I model, photograph, or both. No I am not bothered if you came here looking for my engineering leadership or mental illness content and you find you like the pics too. That said, please read this essay about that project before emailing me to tell me how hot I look in a bikini.
