The essence...

of dress-sense is


You should always take time to think about whatever you want wear and aim to “Always Be Confident.”
To "Always Be Confident," you need to "Always Be Comfortable."
To "Always Be Comfortable," you have to DRESS well. 
DRESSing well entails wearing clothes that are:

Suitable not just stylish - don't spend money on stylish clothes that don't/won't fit you;
Simple not stuffy - a lot of times, less is more, accessorize sensibly.

As you think about what you'll wear each day - remember it starts with ABC.

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.

John Maxwell takes it one step further in saying that:
To add value to others, one must first value others. Hence you must seek and know what is of value - knowing that one person's trash is another person's treasure and vice versa.

The easiest way to check if you know what's of value is how you manage your time - and what you do with it.

Until you add value to yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you won't do anything with it. ~ M. Scott Peck

“The two most important days in your life are  the day you are born and the day you find out why.”  ~ Mark Twain
