18 tracks to get you pumped up while dressing up


Shuffling through your closet for the perfect outfit in the morning, before an event, or before a major party can be tedious. But it is a chore only if you choose to see it as a chore. Dressing up should be fun–remember when you were 5 and all you did was play with your mom’s makeup and clothes? It can be like that again. All you gotta do is turn up the music.
