1. "If only ourselves" goes with "deceive". It says that we dress to deceive (even if it is only ourselves we are deceiving). In other words, one doesn't have to be consciously trying to deceive another person.Originally Posted by Taka
2. Project means to "put out from ourselves to others", "to show or exhibit to others". I would not use "in" there. I would use "by". The "in" there is attempting to say "in choosing that appearance, we project", but it doesn't work for me.
