Again and Again

I don’t know about you, but I can’t say I understand the idea of wearing a garment once, or even having an allotted time between when clothing pieces can be worn again. It just seems like a a lot of effort, and totally ignores the important rule of getting a great CPW (cost per wear out of your clothes).  Particularly, when investing in quality pieces, CPW is everything!  While some people schedule when they can repeat clothing, I wore the same shirt for two very different parts of my Sunday, to church, as seen in yesterday’s post, and to hang with friends here :-).  I’ve gotten more than my money’s worth on this $3 Ralph Lauren shirt thrifted from the boys department!

Great style includes getting the bang for your buck!  What do you do to get your money’s worth out of clothes?
