Big Bust Power Dressing: Are You Wearing Your Black Underwear?

Who can resist a good mom story ahead of Mother's Day? After my own mother visited last week, she left behind her finished copy of Ladies Home Journal where I found a collection of stories called "The Best Conversation I've Had With My Mom."

Here's my favorite, from reader Suzanne Casamento:

"When I was 22 I had my first important work meeting and I confessed to my mother how nervous I was. She told me the story of her reentry into the workforce in the 1980s. She'd been a stay-at-home mom for years, so she was anxious when she had a big job interview. On the morning of the meeting she put on her sexiest black lace bra and panties, which made her feel powerful. During the interview she thought of the black underwear and told herself that even though she might be scared on the outside, she felt totally confident underneath. She got that job and now, whenever I have something important to do, she calls and asks, "Are you wearing your black underwear?" I always am."

What accessory or piece of clothing gives you confidence every time you wear it? If you can't think of anything, it may be time to try a white shirt from Campbell & Kate!
