This is my first post, and I would like to start by thanking everyone here as I have learned much by lurking in the last few months.
Here’s something I have been curious about: what made you start paying careful attention to the way you dress? I realize there are those gifted individuals with natural insight into these things, and recent graduates or mid-career professionals nervous about making a good first impression at a new job; but what of the person working at the same place in the same position who decides one fine day to make a change seemingly out of the blue? The question is this: what was your light bulb/eureka moment?
Fair is fair, so I will start.
I saw my reflection in the glass on the subway while returning home from a long day of work, and I looked terrible.
In my defense, I was working long hours, newly married ( and my in-laws decided to stay with us for two months after the wedding...YAY!!!)....but the facts remain the same: I was literally horrified by my own reflection.
So does anyone else have a similar story?
