“THE WAY I DRESS DOES NOT MATTER; WHAT MATTERS IS WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER”: TRUTH OR FALLACY
It has long been a thing for some set of people have been dwelling in the belief that it does not matter what they wear, or how good or bad their fashion sense is; all that matters are the value they have to add. Is that belief, right? Join me on this ride.

Take your time, to select matching pieces; note, they don’t have to be expensive, they just have to bring out the beauty and handsomeness in you.
Lastly, your carriage and charisma in whatever you wear is very important. I leave you with this saying;
