Do you dress for yourself or to impress other people?

  • Once upon a time, it was to impress others because I was worried about how other people looked at me, and thought of me; certain styles, name brands, etc just so I felt and looked “good” according to other people’s standards. I grew up with a mom whom always wanted my sibling and myself to dress accordingly when we were out in public, we weren’t allowed to pick out our own clothes for a while & eventually when we were able to, we were examined first before having leaving the house. Having a nice outer appearance was important to her; she always said “you never know you might run into or meet, so you want to dress your best” — and it was expected of us. 
  • Now I dress for myself but the exception would be dressing for a first date or special occasion; wanting to impress the person(s) (first impressions are important) but at the same time still wearing something I feel comfortable in. I like to look good because it makes me feel good (mom always said, if you look good, you feel good) and I believe how a person carries themselves speaks volumes no matter what attire they have on, so I try to choose clothing that makes me feel confident in my body and with myself.
