Besides the fact that public nudity is generally frowned upon (nevermind illegal in most areas and instances), clothes may seem like a relatively insignificant aspect of your life. However, studies show that what you wear actually impacts other areas — probably more than you realize they do.
The phrase “dress for success” may be more than a marketing ploy: it actually has some truth behind it. In many ways, how you dress can help determine your success and mental and emotional well being. Whether you’re a student or professional, a volunteer or a stay-at-home parent, your clothing choices will likely impact not only how others perceive you, but also how you perceive yourself and your own life circumstances.
How Others Perceive You
Maybe you’re beyond caring about how you come across from a social and emotional perspective, but that doesn’t mean that the impressions of other people don’t bear weight. In fact, wearing jeans instead of casual pants or a poorly fitted ensemble rather than a tailored suit could make the difference in being passed over or hired, laid off or promoted. But others’ perceptions aren’t the only ones that are shaped by your choice of threads.
How You Perceive Yourself
Success is also determined in part by your own self-perception, which impacts your confidence and general attitude about life. Not only will that play into how others perceive you and the opportunities that present themselves to you, but it will also impact your level of satisfaction with your life in general. That happiness factor is really important, no matter what accolades or positions you receive.
How Content You Are
As much as self-perception plays a role in your happiness, so does your impression of your decisions: regrets are tough on that. As much as “buyers’ remorse” is a thing, consumers report higher levels of dissatisfaction with low-quality purchases, as opposed to high-quality ones. In fact, many people say they regret not buying top-quality items in place of more but lower quality ones.
Considering those three ways in which your clothing purchases impact your life, we think it’s safe to say that a visit to the Penny Pincher Boutique in Bedford Hills, NY is bound to be a positive move that will impact your life in many ways. While high-fashion clothing may seem like a splurge, it’s likely to be one you won’t regret. (And at the Penny Pincher, you can afford such a splurge without breaking the bank!) As others perceive you in a more positive way and your self-confidence and opportunities continue to escalate while regrets all-but dissipate, we think you’ll be glad you made the trip and will be pleased with your high-quality purchases and all they mean for the rest of your life.
