I’m sure a lot of us have at least one homecoming or prom dress lurking in the back of our closets, keeping the dust bunnies company and hiding from the light of day (if not a dress for a formal dance, at least some fancy article of clothing that you don’t wear often). These dresses feel hopeless, lonely, and unwanted. But this New Year’s Eve, you—yes, YOU!—can make that dress feel loved again. BUT WAIT! There’s more!

Goooooood afternoon!

I think I only know because of years of watching “What Not to Wear”. 🙂 So whether you’re in my econ class, you have a college interview, or you’re about to start a new job, the work wear guidelines I’m about to share will be the perfect tool for you!
