It's a pretty old adage but one that still rings true: Dress for the job you want, not the job you have. And as we're still in the thrall of the new year, it's certainly a worthy time to take a peek into your work wardrobe and ask yourself: is this really the image I want to project in the office?

Motivation Monday: Calculate Cost Per Wear


This week we’re honing in on ‘Cost Per Wear’ or CPW. This is a really simple formula to figuring out the value an item has in your wardrobe.
