The Long View

Warning: this is a 4+ minute video. In the long run, the information about investing in a professional wardrobe may save you time, money, and a year’s worth of aggravation. Even if taking the Wardrobe Investment plunge is not on your agenda, use the blueprint the video provides for organizing clothing already in your closet.
