Your wardrobe can give you a boost of confidence or ease jitters. And when chosen with care, your wardrobe can make meeting new people a breeze.

  1. Start your first impression online with the attire (as well as hairstyle) you select for the head shot you use on your About page and for your avatar.
  2. Reinforce your impression with a signature piece, like the perfect dress, you can use for meetings or networking opportunities.  

Join the Alt community and our co-host Maurices on Twitter Wednesday morning (tomorrow) October 28th at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET/4 PM GMT for an hour-long chat about showcasing your personality through your wardrobe choices. We will be talking about being aware of what your wardrobe says about you, defining a signature style, and more.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
