pondering humanity and it's choices

People seem to treat me with more respect and kindness when I'm dressed in my business clothes, as opposed to my usual ho-bo chic look. Is that because they think 'this me' is more important? do i contribute more to society when I'm dressed as a business women? do i give more with my business decisions based on how i dress? in comparison to my more usual casual approach to outwear. No matter how i choose to decorate my body and image isn't it still the same me? and there for aren't i just as important no matter what i wear?
