The Importance of Dressing as a ‘Creature Unlike Any Other’ (CUAO)

In The Rules books authors Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider (E&S) teach the concept and importance of being a ‘Creature Unlike Any Other’ if you wish to capture the heart of your Mr Right.

“Being a creature unlike any other is really an attitude, a sense of confidence and radiance that permeates your being from head to toe.” (Fein and Schneider, 2013)

In a previous blog I wrote Weight Matters I talk about the importance of doing The Rules no matter what your weight and / or size and not to use this as an excuse.

In *Jennifer L. Scott’s book ‘Lessons from Madame Chic’ – she advises readers to “Dress presentably on a daily basis to honour yourself and those around you.” (Scott, 2012)

I feel to dress ‘to honour yourself’ is so important.  It makes you feel good about yourself.  You don’t have to look like a super-model or anyone else, I feel it’s best to make the most of yourself and learn to love yourself and your own personal style.  Check out my blogs on The Importance of Self-Esteem in Happy Relationships and Learning to Set My Boundaries & Loving Myself

So, whatever you look like, whatever your size, it’s important as a CUAO to take pride in your appearance. Do your best to present yourself well. Wear clothes that suit and flatter your figure.

For inspiration for your wardrobe read my blog Letting Go – in it I explain how it’s important to declutter your wardrobe.  When you go through your wardrobe regularly and let go of things that you don’t use and don’t fit you, you’ll end up with more of the clothes you love and it will help you to learn more about your own personal style.  I really enjoy using capsule wardrobes – and feel this is a great way to hone your personal style and feel better about the clothes you wear everyday.  I have used and recommend * Project 333 (a concept created by Courtney Carver) and * The Ten Item Wardrobe (this is the concept Jennifer L. Scott conceptualised and writes about in her book ‘Lessons from Madame Chic’) myself – I love both of these concepts.  I’ve also recently started using * Your Closet app alongside my capsule wardrobe which I’m really enjoying.
