The Art of Manliness

On one of my recent posts (Cherry Bomb), I reviewed an event I attended and spoke of how disappointed I was in the way the men were dressed.  This spurred on a bit of conversation within the comments section of my post. Thank you for your comments friends…keep ’em coming!

I found this very interesting video and article that, I thought, clearly helped explain and illustrate how important looking your best is when interacting with others – after all you only get one chance to make a first impression – and those first impressions are lasting impressions.   Looking your best is directly related to your ability to influence and persuade others and is the basics in the ‘Art of Manliness’.

Think both the ladies and gents out there will enjoy and learn something they may not have thought of before.

Social Media Enthusiast. Learning Designer. Curvy Fashionista. I'm a 30-something Canadian born Bengali (parents are from Kolkata, India...for those of you who need to know that type of thing). I've been chubby-curvy-plus-sized my entire life. Standing at a height of 5'2 and with a darker complexion, it has always been a challenge finding outfits or "looks" that really suit me. Living in the fashionable city of Toronto since birth, with a solid career has finally allowed me to embrace my love of pretty fashions in clothing, shoes and everything in between.

  1. This is very interesting. I was recently a super swanky affair in NYC the night before New Years Eve and it was a 1920s-50s party in a posh, members only club, tickets were not cheap and so many people brought their A game. THEN in walks a couple in jeans, running shoes and casual sweaters. Another game in a baseball cap, tshirt and jeans and this was not the only people. I was shocked! Especially since people in Tuxedos were being turned away at the door due to being sold out.

    I understand that sometimes people don’t have the money to dress swanky but if you are paying for the ticket to said swanky affair then you must have at least a few dollars to buy a nice shirt and dress shoes or put on a nice skirt or dress. Even if you don’t the Goodwill is well stocked in nice items I must say.

    I just was confused by their reasoning and I have to agree that you only have one chance to make a good first impression and sadly this grouping of guests missed the mark.

    Great posts 🙂
