A friend of mine tells the story of how she entered the world of marketing and brand development. While working at a local sign company, a customer walked in that immediately drew her attention. The woman was dressed impeccably from head to toe. Her modern style was unlike others she seen around town. The mystery woman had an air of confidence that caused others to want to know more.
Not wanting to miss this opportunity, my friend had to ask this woman "where are you from? You don't look like you are from here." "New York", the mystery woman answered, then she went on to talk about relocating to the city to build her advertising firm. Long story short, the two exchanged numbers which ultimately led my friend to an new opportunity in the world of advertising.
Remember the post on attractive people dressing well? The mystery woman I spoke to talked about the multitude of opportunities came her way as a result of caring about how she presented herself to the world. She reminded us that international women of mystery present the version of themselves as a celebration of life. Perhaps we're not ready to dress like this 24 hours a day, but I believe that we should all have essentials that can quickly elevate us from girlhood into womanhood in a moment's notice.
|WALLET | COIN POUCH | FRAGRANCE ||
Before I invested quality bags, I first made the decision to purchase a designer wallet. My previous wallet was low quality, worn and falling apart. It wasn't until I was told by a friend that "the place where I keep my money should represent abundance" that I decided to upgrade. First to a nicer wallet, then eventually to a designer brand. Things have never been same. It didn't stop there. A well constructed wallet is just the beginning. Let's not forget that a quality handbag is part of the international woman of mystery's uniform. If you don't yet have a handbag in your possession that makes you smile every time you look at it, then you yet haven't reached mystery woman status.
This woman doesn't need to follow the latest trends. Instead, she's invested in classic pieces that maintain their quality through the years. She has a high sense of self worth so she invests time and money in herself knowing that her investment will bring a hefty return. It's all about standards. The woman of mystery sets high standards for herself and works hard to maintain them. She eats well. She speaks her mind. She's attracted to anything that's visually stunning. She enjoys buying herself flowers for no reason at all. She constantly draws new people and experiences into her life.
