The very first long post I ever made for MHB was this exact topic, coupled with me sharing a few outfits of my own. This itself is an important topic that must be addressed.
How you treat yourself ultimately tells others how to treat you, and the easiest way to express that is in your presentation. I don’t have to be the one to tell you that first impressions matter, but what matters even more is how you feel about the impression that you’re giving out.
This must be addressed. You externalize the impressions you have about yourself so if you truly want to start making moves and changes in your life, ask yourself first what story you’re telling others with your style.
Now anyone can exude confidence and sophistication without buying expensive brand clothing. It’s not the cost of the clothing that defines your worth, it’s how you assemble the ensemble in a way that best makes you FEEL like a million bucks.
If you’re not feeling like you’re a woman on a mission by the time you’ve gotten all dressed up and ready, then tweak and change something until you do. Sorry fellas, she’s gonna be a couple more minutes. When I started dressing the way that I felt resonated with how I felt about myself was the moment I started walking with my head held high.

Remind yourself that you are a woman that is worth getting to know. You are a woman that knows what she wants out of life and knows her worth. You are woman that likes to take care of herself because she loves herself enough to know she deserves to be taken care of.
That impression that you feel will be externalized effortlessly the moment you switch on that mindset. I was once offered a job at Michael Kors simply by walking in the store with this mentality. Externalize the impression of “I’m worth it” – because trust me, you are.
