I have to admit, i don't have such a great collection of "new" (as i would like to call it) basics. I do have a closet, a dresser, a rolling rack, a few totes and... a suitcase full of clothes. I try to go through my stuff every once in a while, and bring what i don't wear to Goodwill, or swap it, or sell. But it seems like it doesn't help much. Because i fulfill my dressers with the same frequency as i get rid of extra stuff. I have made it my New Year's resolution to invest in classics that will never go out of fashion. And have it as a rule to buy only a few trendy things every season. It just makes it so easy to stay in style without spending tons of money every three months. And buying just two or three things (that's including accessories and jewelry) will still show your fashion appreciation. Since i do own a few significant pieces already, i figured i should just finish the collection!
