Here are some of much more reasons why you should overdress:
- You stand out from the crowd.
- You get noted.
- You are visible.
- You look like you’ve been either at, or will go to an exciting event/place.
- You attract opportunities.
- Self-confidence. Looking your best, you feel your best, feeling your best you are more self-confidence, an important pre-requisite for success. There is some wisdom in saying “Dress for Success.”
- It’s more fun than wearing sludge-brown or Old Lady colors or mommy jeans or ugly trends that ruin your style …
- There are 101 reasons to wear heels. There is truth in the saying Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the World. - Marilyn Monroe #fashionquote Click To Tweet
- Well-dressed people are conceived to be competent. That’s why we are very selective in what to wear to a job interview, right?
- Staying young at heart means you still love to dress a doll. The only difference to your 5-years-old you is that you now dress a living Barbie doll – namely you.
- You look prepared for whatever.
- You love the way you are.
In a nutshell: There is a reason why the fairy gave the beautiful shoes and wonderful prom-dresses to Cinderella for the balls at the King’s castle.

Spring outfit inspiration (overdressed)
The look of the day gives an inspiration or example of how to overdress. A cape is a statement in outerwear. The silk rose is a nice addition to dress-up the business casual work attire (see photos below). You could as well wear the blouse with the upper tow buttons open. This look would be clearly underdressed when the dress code would ask for festive business casual.
Zoom-in on outfit details: Hermes collier de chien bangle, super-sized puma belt buckle, silk flower pin (all own) and gingham blouse c/o Whistle River

Top of the World OOTD My Fav
Christine Besen draw my attention with her very French Je ne sais pas quoi way to style her palazzo pants. Quite different than the American Classic way. Ok, everybody at this point thinks Arlene Dietrich, who actually was a German immigrant. Christine blogs at Bon Chic Style.
