I don't know about you... but whenever I get a new dress, a new item of designer jewellery, a pair of new heels, or something that makes me feel beautiful - it changes my whole attitude - once I am wearing it.
It's like make-up - we where it as a mask to hide our true self but when we wear our make up, the change in our confidence is radically transformed.
I am unsure of the reason behind this, but I don't understand why some people think this is wrong to give a little glam to who we really are? I think it can change the person behind it all - but for the better!
A good example of this is happened last Saturday night. I had to compare and host an event to over 300 people at a Martial Arts demonstration.
My father had asked me to wear my Martial Art clothing (very macho and boyish) - however I expressed in doing so it wouldn't make me feel under confident in myself - my attitude and wont feel the part of 'host' in my head as there was no separation of me and the performers in my head.
My mother being a woman - backed me all the way and persuaded my dad!
I wore a tailored black skirt suit - killer heels and accessoried with a scarf and bang - my confidence could not be knocked and I gave a great performance.
So I say if you look good you will feel good! Try it!
