B4 The Door Thursday

It's Thursday and you're about to out for a quick jaunt to the coffee shop or meet a friend for something casual. It's not a big deal, no one to impress...or so you think. So you throw on some comfy jeans, t-shirt, some cute sandals, grab your bag and head out the door. Arriving at your very casual meet up, surprise! you see a very attractive man at the next table, your friend's mother stops by spontaneously, or the CEO of a company you would love to work for steps onto the elevator with you. Now you wish, you had taken a second glance b4 the door.

Many people assume so often that style does not equal comfort. So they opt for comfort. Comfortable worn jeans, a soft t-shirt and flat shoes. I have nothing against that, one just needs to remember simple pieces deserve exquisite styling.

The story above is actually a real story that happened to me. Except b4 the door, I looked at myself and thought, "Is this an outfit I'd really want to be seen in?". So I put down my purse and went back to my closet. Looking in the mirror, I thought about what piece I really want to keep on and how to make it a bit more special. A few accessories and some stylish comfortable items and we have an entirely new look.And guess what, I felt so good that I wasn't totally shocked when the attractive man gave me his number. Dressing with style has something to do with how others view you, but it has everything to do with how you see yourself. When you are impressed with your look, you have more confidence, you smile more and generally appear more approachable. People complimenting your style (either jealously in their head or verbally to you) boosts your confidence in your own eyes and their perception of you in their eyes. Give others a chance to assume that you are as awesome as you really are.
