Dress for Success: Fashion Affirmations
We know that dressing appropriately for a job comes with cubicle territory. But, what about the position of being your unique individual self? How do you dress for the everyday successes of life? If you are like me, I take what I wear very seriously. I like to reflect on how I feel at any decisive moment as well as use my fashion to lift my spirits when I am feeling a little less than ordinary.
People are visual beings and react to outer appearances, and although I preach building confidence by not letting people's opinions affect your self-worth, I also find it essential to use your image to build yourself up.
If it feels good…
Putting on the right garb can completely changes the way you feel. It boosts confidence and gives us a sense of self-control and accomplishment. When you take the time to get involved in your fashion, you are saying, "I am worth the time!"
This small yet powerful move shows self-worth and dedication.
Furthermore, having outer confidence will help you take on those difficult tasks. Projects always come out better when you feel good, or at least you'll feel good doing those tasks. Dressing to boost your mood is a thing, and there isn't anything better than a great outfit to spruce things up a bit. If it feels good, wear it!

We can build boards and place sticky notes everywhere to engage our subconscious and remind ourselves of what we are worth. So, why not let the mirror be an affirmation as well. Use it for more than just those sticky notes, let that reflection be a way to affirm you're a damn Gorgeous and worth every power move you make. Dress in such a positive way that you are a walking affirmation. Let your outfit connect your vocabulary.
