I think that one wants to impress differently all the time, sometimes yeah, you want to impress a man, or women, or just feel like you look a lot better than normal, but even though it's probably going to sound overly positive and fake, I do think you should
dress to impress yourself and maybe not always, but at least
it often.. celebrate what you have and I'm not talking about a specific silhouette or some special feature but the only object one truly possess- which is the body. More than vanity, for me it's like the article ends, about discipline.. self-respect, kind of clearing up all basic, physical 'ports' of good energy and let it all in.. cause feeling uncomfortable or invisible or dirty or like you just look 60% less of what you could always takes an emotional toll.. and looking the opposite (great) for me has nothing to do with wearing Chanel or workout clothes, but just knowing that whatever you're wearing, there was some thoughtfulness and dignity involved and you didn't treat yourself like a dumpster..
Perhaps I have an case of OCD but for me, waking up early, taking a shower with music,
not seeing any dirty dishes
, dressing up (to great music
) and walking out of my house (with music too
) makes a huge difference on how I'll feel, even if I'm just going to the grocery store.. and I think people react to that with respect, or just positively, or they just leave you alone.
Totally. No outfit could ever be perfect enough to make me forget about unfulfilled household duties, the feeling would chase me all day.
