It is often said that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Beauty and looking good is subjective and mean different things to different people. Just look at some of the runway shows. They have the weirdest ‘couture’ outfits that to me are hideous! … I know designers make ‘ready to wear’ and ‘couture’ outfits, but have you ever seen anyone in a ‘couture’ outfit walking down the street? …the importance and necessity of ‘couture’ outfits vary based on the person you ask…
Looking good is like wearing couture outfits… to some people you are the hottest most fashionable thing, and to others, you look like a hot mess!… Everyone has their fabulous days and not-so-fabulous days… I was on my way to work one day; I felt good!… You know those days when you feel sexy, confident and on top of the world?… yeah, that was my day. I was strutting my stuff; I was wearing an outfit that I have worn a million times. While walking, I realize that everyone started staring at me. They were looking at me from head to toe. It was not just two people; it was almost everyone I passed, both men and women. So naturally, I wondered what they were staring at. I checked my teeth and my hair. I couldn’t figure out what it was. I wasn’t wearing a ‘fabulous’ outfit, I looked normal… I couldn’t find anything wrong… I later realized that they were not looking at what I was wearing but how I was wearing it… I was confident and comfortable in what I was wearing and that was what stood out…
Looking good is 90% confidence!… some people can wear a garbage bag and still look fabulous. It doesn’t matter what you wear, but HOW you wear it!
Being confident has nothing to do with what you are wearing. It is innate. It is how you carry and present yourself.

This is quite true you know, quite true. First impressions are important especially when you are holding a job. As a budding professional you want to look good & do an excellent job. When it comes to fashion runways it can just stay there because apparently those folks don’t live in the real world lol. Fashion and high fashion does have its place but realistically not many persons can afford that lifestyle & also we have to take into consideration that times have changed so we must be much wiser with our money and not spend it foolishly. Fashion comes and goes. Also when you have God’s goodness & mercy surrounding you best believe persons will look & stare at you!
Many persons only view looking good as wearing nice clothes, but that is not the case. Looking good goes beyond the external…
