You never get a second chance to make a first impression!
Those words speak volumes, and are so true. Whether you are in a business or social situation we are being judged by the way we look in less then 7 seconds of a first meeting- not a very long time at all, and no chance to even let our marvelous qualities and charm shine through. You don’t need to show up wearing the latest designer clothing, head to toe, that will make your credit card smoke. What you do want to do is put your best foot forward, and feel you are dressed appropriately and most important that you feel confident in your choices. When we look good, we feel good, AND make a great and lasting impression. Everyone can look his or her best no matter what your shape, size or budget.
It just takes a bit of thought and preparation on your part. What I do know is that women will look men over from the top of their head down to their shoes. Yes, shoes are often how men are judged, along with their watches. So if your shoes are grungy and worn out, your attention to detail may not be present. Remember, it’s all in the details, and women are detailed oriented, it is burned in our DNA, like eating chocolate. Dirty or stained clothing is not going to make you a winner either. Women, watch out for your feet too. There are men who love to give you the once over. If your toes have not seen a pedicurist in awhile, and you are wearing your killer open toed shoes, all I can say is…big, bold image breaker.
