Look Good – Feel Good

Think of a time you looked great, and you knew it. How you felt, how you interacted with people, and how people looked at you.
I remember going twice in one day to the same place. First time wearing sweatpants and a tee shirt, and the second dressed-up for an evening out with friends. The same people were there both times. I was invisible and ignored the first time and treated like royalty the second. They, of course, did not know I was the same person. As humans, we decide on competence and trustworthiness within a few seconds of meeting someone. So like in my example if you are thinking, “I don’t care’ about how I look” then that is how you will come off to anyone you meet.
Be Noticed – Be Yourself
There are many unfair prejudices. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we got to see someone for who they are on the inside? Yes, Polly Anna, it would!
“First impressions are based on a wide range of characteristics: age, race, culture, language, gender, physical appearance, accent, posture, and voice. The first impressions individuals give to others could greatly influence how they are treated and viewed in many contexts of everyday life.” – Wikipedia
We cannot control someone else perceptions, but we can be intentional about our appearance.
Why does some clothing look better on you? Do some colors wash you out?
How about styles, even the latest fashion, does it sometimes make you look dowdy or like you are trying too hard? Have a favorite go-to couple of outfits, but the rest or your closet is a grave-yard? Not quite sure how to duplicate that great look but also have plenty of variety? Are you wasting time and money buying clothing that does not look good on you and you will never wear?
As a Caucasian woman, the prejudice I experience is gender. Lately, there has been some age prejudice coming my way too. Like anyone, I am grateful to have people who know and love me.
