Today I was hanging out with Tony when our mutual friend Frasier came over. He needed to borrow Tony’s SUV to pick up a squat rack that he purchased at Dick’s Sporting Goods. The three of us then loaded up in the Denali and headed over to the mall where Dick’s is located.
After we bought and loaded the rack into the car we then decided to go around and shop around. Tony has recently been interested in upping his fashion and wanted to go shop at Zara. We all enter the store and the first thing there is a mannequin wearing this Peacock-esque jacket.
When I saw it I knew I would buy it. After all, it literally is Peacocking. (Male dressing for attention)
After I bought this jacket and Tony bought a nice new shirt, the three of us walked over to Nordstrom’s.
And then it happened again. There were these ridiculous metal shades with green lenses. Again, I knew when I saw it that I would buy it.
And then I did. And it feels great.
In the past few months I really upgraded my style and it has been simply amazing. The amount of confidence I feel now regularly is like nothing I have felt before. I believe that this comes from being forced to own your presence which you present with a loud style. When you dress loud people notice, and you are forced into a certain spotlight. Your option then is feel awkward and look silly, or strut your stuff and own it.
I recommend choosing the latter. Now at first it will feel off to you. You will think you look foolish and often for straight males you may think that you look gay, but not only will pass, who cares?
The only person who truly does is you. And once you realize this you become more freed. So what if someone thinks your style is bad, who the hell are they? You are focusing on the wrong things and the wrong people. Focus on yourself and soon you will feel great and people will compliment you. And when that happens just watch you and your style flourish!
Cheers to Peacocking,
