“I dress for the image. Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion…”

Do you think you are misunderstood at times? Frustrating huh? Do you find yourself explaining yourself to people who just don’t get you or they like “yea right” Have you stopped to think that maybe, just maybe it’s not that they don’t get you, probably it’s the way you carry yourself when you are around them; Body Language – (we communicate even without saying a word). People you meet already have something to say about you the first time they see you (First Impressions) which usually aren’t the truth but still last! With the opinion people formed about you, they will decide if they want to speak to you or even do business with you. Mind you they haven’t even spoken to you!

There is something you can do however to pass the right message. DRESS not only to cover your body but to communicate. It should always be at the back of your mind that people will judge you on how you dressed especially if you want something from them, be it a job, a promotion, money or just their attention. Clothes are tools to manipulate perception and dressed right for the occasion you can’t go wrong. Whether you care or don’t, there is no running away from that.

Another example is social media, people judge you by the friends you keep, the conversations you make, posts you share, the pages you like, the comments you make and form an idea of the kind of person you might be without having met you. They still can decide whether to delete you, add you or block depending on what they want from you. 🙂

YOU can change that if you choose to take yourself seriously and own your image. Not everyone can be able to do this without help that’s why there are Image Consultants to help you manage your image.

Because they are trained professionals, they have specialized knowledge and coaching in dress, grooming, body language, etiquette, and professional presence. Consultations are tailored to meet your specific goals and needs. Beginning with your current wardrobe, an Image Consultant and Personal Shopper will make suggestions on the appropriate color, style, and fit suitable for you. They do take considerations of the different body types, your lifestyle, age and of course your budget. They give advice on how to best accentuate your best body features and the best colours to wear. An image consultant will also suggest additional investment pieces that will help you present yourself with more confidence, competence and credibility – ultimately increasing your earnings potential.

Working with an Image Consultant and Personal Shopper is an investment in you.  Dressing well, doesn’t necessarily mean you are projecting the right image for you. Find out what your clothing says about you. By working with an image consultant, your current challenges will turn into opportunities. Receive more compliments; feel more prepared for every occasion; and save valuable time and money by avoiding wardrobe blunders. Your return on investment is noticeable and feeling more confident is priceless.
