What is it about wear­ing a tuxe­do or that lit­tle black dress, that makes us feel con­fi­dent, beau­ti­ful, splen­did, even invin­ci­ble?

On the days when you feel low and invis­i­ble, why not try this on for size: imag­ine you are wear­ing a fan­tas­tic tai­lored tuxe­do or a stun­ning for­mal gown.
And then pro­ceed with your day.
