Weekly Vibe #5

This week felt a little exhausting for me at work in the studio because I had to do more studio shoots, however what lightened me up the least was receiving the 2 pairs of Charnos 60 den Opaque tights! I tried the Chocolate coloured one and wow! The fit was awesome and it was so comfortable and smooth! Anyways as I was reading a post LAUF (Legwear as Unisex Fashion) titled "You Are Not So Smart" the topic was actually adapted from a book of the same name by David McRaney which dispels a number of myth on what people really think of you and it really helps men who are just starting to decide having legwear as part of their fashion inventory.

Here is a small excerpt from the post which you can read it all here

Chapter 29 (page 162)

The Spotlight Effect

You spill a drink at a party. You get a mustard stain on your shirt. Your forehead is breaking out on the day you have to do a presentation. Oh no. What will people think? Chances are, they won't think anything. Most people won't notice at all, and if they do, they'll probably disregard and forget your imperfections and faux pas within seconds.

You lose some weight, buy a new pair of pants, and strut through doors expecting some sort of acknowledgment. Perhaps you get a new haircut, or buy a new watch. You spend an extra fifteen minutes in front of the mirror expecting the world to notice. You spend so much time thinking about your own body, your own thoughts and behaviors, you begin to think other people must be noticing too. The research says they aren't, at least not nearly as much as you are.

When in a group or public setting, you think every little nuance of your behavior is under scrutiny by everyone else. The effect is even worse if you must stand on a stage or go out with someone for the first time. You can't help but be the center of your universe, and you find it difficult to gauge just how much other people are paying attention since you are paying attention to you all the time. When you start to imagine yourself in the audience, you believe every little misstep is amplified. You are not so smart when it comes to dealing with crowds because you are too egocentric, and they are just as convinced that they are being scrutinized.

Wow! What a revelation! What David says is really true! If only more men were more conscious about this! Anyways do look out for my coming reviews on the Charnos 60 denier Opaque tights! Have an awesome December!

Thanks for reading!
