    I absolutely agree. We gave control over how we feel thus how we dress. I just had a baby two months ago but even though I am mommy mode , I make it a point to at least look pulled together when I leave the house .

    I stay at home with the baby but I find when I stay in my pajamas all day, I am less productive . So I at least those on a dress and earrings around the house . It makes me feel like I’m not in a deep mommy home . Great topic!

      I could not agree more! I too notice a difference of how I dress fro work. If I put on ‘anything’-which is a result of me rushing or getting up too late- for work I am less productive. However, if I take my time to prepare the night before and not it the snooze button that allows my mind to be at ease, thus taking time to make myself pretty! 🙂 LOL! Clothing really does affect the mind!

    I agree. It is amazing how your clothes can make you feel and how depending on how you feel you pick your clothes. So much can be said about this. I have really tried to do better, but with 5 children, full time job, personal development, and building a business just to name a few roles I juggle I find myself making due with what I can put together at the time… but as a seamstress I realize to that this effects my life tremendously.

    I am a Adjunct Instrutor/Trainer, MBA student and wife who has Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which effects your mood because of the hormone imbalance. Most days when going to work or school, I don’t feel like getting dressed so I find myself throwing on the easiest thing. Even though I am a shopaholic, I don’t wanna wear my new cute stuff to work or school so I rotate the same clothes almost every week or every other and have been for at least a year. Which puts me in a negative mood cause I don’t feel beautiful when I do this…I feel boring! It doesn’t affect my work and school performance, but I just don’t feel like those environments deserve my best, which I know is wrong thinking. But, on the weekends, I’m in full glam mood and I feel really good about myself even if I’m just going to the movies with my husband. Now I am wondering why don’t I care as much about my professional self image as I do about my personal self image. Hmm, something for me to think about!

      I feel you, I do it BIG on the weekends! But during the week sometimes I’m really not feeling it. I admit, I dress according to my mood at times.

    I love fashion. I have since I was a little girl. Now, as a 35 year old woman, I still love fashion. I find myself putting on my best when I go to church, which is normally a few times a week, and when my husband and I have date night, usually every Saturday evening. I think to myself, when I look good I feel good. But when I’m not feeling good, I could really care less what I put on. I wear my sadness and I wear my happiness.

    My biggest insecurity came after the birth of my son— stretch marks & the worsening of my eczema! I didn’t want to wear swim suits of course and I styled my clothes purposely to ‘hide’ these imperfections! But one day, I told myself this is MY body– the body that God gave me! How can I hide anything or be ashame of His creations. Soon after that I ‘let go’! I was able to embrace my insecurities and style my clothes according to my new found happiness– in ME!

    I find it increasing difficult to get dressed for work these days. Ive lost my funky fresh. I wear the same ole style and I have noticed that my productivity is also in a rut. No higher, no lower ; just the same. On the odd occasion when I make a little effort with my clothes, my work days are kinder, shorter and more meaningful. How I feel in my clothes really does make the difference .

      Same here – when I first started working I was always on point but after 25 years at the same company (different departments) I’ve lost my motivation!

    Very interested in this topic. For me fashion is deeper than looking attractive externally. It is how I express myself and an extension of myself. In particular when I’m having a bad day or a bad night before I generally dress better to lift my spirits. I’ve always loved the beauty of womanhood and fashion is an outward extension of that. I can’t wait to hear more from you. In the meantime as the youngsters would say continue to slay the blog world.

    Let’s talk about flat shoes! I thought I couldn’t live without my heels– until the lastest brands revealed some of the most amazing flat shoes! I usually pair mine with a midi skirt or hi-low skirt with a tee!

    Im all about the high heels. Im really quite short but the flats I see these days are too cute and very tempting. I would wear flats with a maxi dress.
