News surfaced last week about Republican donors spending over $100,000 in less than a month on vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s wardrobe.
Now I think most prudent folks would balk at anybody dropping tens of thousands at Neiman Marcus, but I believe there is some truth to that old saying “dress for the job you want, not the one you have.” I also think dropping money in your work clothes—and therefore your image—as the McCain campaign did for Palin, is a smart money move. Do you agree?
I can recall going out and buying a $200 suit to wear at a discount store to an interview for a job that paid roughly a lot more than I was making at the time. I really didn’t want to spend $200 on a suit that I would wear maybe once a year, but I wanted to look good for the interview, and I knew that the suit would not only make me look good, but make me feel more confident as well.
Do you dress well at work as a career move? Do you spend more money on work clothes because of your ambitions?
