I was reading through the archives and found this great post which cinched for me the decision to pass on a referral to this great blog to you all…
Over dinner my Dad and I were talking about young men, and possible “turn-offs” in a young woman (namely myself). Because I am so constantly immersed in the fashion biz and environment I tend to dress in a more avante-garde manner. My father admonished me-
“Dressed super stylishly, you can send the wrong message. You want a guy attracted to your heart, so you dress yourself with good works. I don’t want guys attracted to my daughter for her figure.” After pointing out several items that he thought were pushing the envelope, I left nursing my pride. Later, of course, I found myself humbly grateful for his protecting intervention and told him so.
You do not want the men around you to be turned off by your “worldy” appearance. If the first thing he notices is your incredibly stylish outfit, something is wrong. You are speaking louder with your wardrobe than your own mouth and actions.
