Dress for suc­cess

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Cover Story -

Be­fore you buy, don’t just look in the mir­ror, take a photo of your­self in the out­fit. Len­non says we all bring a lot of bag­gage to the mir­ror and we see a truer re­flec­tion in a photo.

If you are go­ing for a job in­ter­view, stake out the of­fice build­ing be­fore­hand to see what the work look seems to be. Any prospec­tive em­ployer will want a new em­ployee who will fit in.

Store your ac­ces­sories where they are vis­i­ble, so you will be prompted to use them.

Check the care la­bels be­fore you buy. You don’t need the added has­sle and ex- pense of dry clean­ing if you can buy ma­chine wash­able. Use depart­ment stores per­sonal shop­pers. This is usu­ally a free ser­vice. Don’t be in­tim­i­dated and state at the out­set that you are not sure you will buy but you are in­ter­ested in see­ing how the ser­vice works.
