I believe in dressing for success…But how?
Grew up in a small town in the Midwest. I ended up taking a scholarship at a local state school. I worked hard during undergrad and was able to land at a solid MM shop base in the Midwest. I always told the story of "I want to be close to family" and "this is where I grew up" to get the job but that was a lie; I just wanted IB. Now I have been at the desk for a year (ignore username) and am realizing I want more.
I just finished taking the GMAT, and now I am trying to lateral to NYC. All my life, I have been the "Midwest kid," but now I want to dress to impress! When I talk to other analysts/associates, I always feel lesser. They are just more polished overall than me. They dress better and they hold the floor when speaking. As the title says, I believe in dressing for success. Look good, feel good type stuff. I think first impressions matter and I obviously don't have "it." What are the key things I need to do to take my looks to the next level? Honestly, I want to look like athat just finished up at a MF.
I am also frugal, so I assume that plays a role in it. This fall I have set aside 5k-a whole fashion update. Would love WSO's fashion advice! what brands? what to buy first? maybe do teeth whitening? Maybe buy better glasses? Any advice is welcome.
This is a serious question. Thanks!
