Lately I have been looking into cost per wear a lot.
The cost per wear formula can work both ways:
Justify a cheap purchase or otherwise:
steer you to just buy better stuff.

|Black tote bag Michael Kors - Zebra print heels Bershka|
Normally I do not think of cost per wear when
making a purchase, it usually comes to mind
upon considering letting a garment go.
At that moment it becomes a reason,
helps justify letting go. For example this 2012
purchase: Valerie Bertinelli trousers for 21.40 USD.
With today's wear CPW is down to 0.89 cents a wear.
Initially they got a lot of wear, then I realised they were
a bit low cut and was not at ease wearing them with
tucked tops so I transitioned to wearing it with blazers
and longer tops.
Surprisingly 24 wears later, they're in good shape,
even though its probably been washed at least
No fading, to tears - just a loose button.
As you can imagine, today is its last wear.
Last wear with me.
