It was one Saturday when I have again to render some overtime work, to catch up what has to be accomplished before another week starts off. I went to work wearing this, a gray on gray outfit.
-- details of the revamped gray top --
I love the details so much. Even though this top had over-sized sleeves,
I had to take it home with the 'repair' thing in mind. See how big are the sleeve holes,
that's how over-sized the original sleeves were.

1.) A SMILE is a curve that sets everything straight.
and they even say: "It takes 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown" so the more pouts the more 'ouch.
2.) Make your POSTURE perfect.
3.) Avoid NEGATIVE BODY LANGUAGE
e.g. playing with hair, picking, scratching, yawning (can be but in apropos) etc.
4.) LISTEN actively.
and what struck me most is the fifth:
5.) Be AWARE of YOUR STYLE
The way you dress directly influences how others perceive you.
