You roll out of bed in the morning and stare into your closet. A voice calls from the back of the rack. "Pick me!" You reach in and pull out that blue shirt you bought on sale at the mall in 2012.

As you sit at your desk with that collar digging into your neck, you think about how you wish you could be at home in a T-shirt and sweatpants.
