I want to go in with a plan. In order to fill out the gaps in my wardrobe--or, at least, the one I am planning--I'll need to make some purchases. But instead of picking whatever is cheap, regardless of how much I like it and how well it'll work with other things, I'm going in with a plan and the intent to purchase quality items that will last for years, like all of these.
I can't really afford all of them, so I'll do some secondhand searching and a little bit of buying at Target and the like--after all, I have tops from Target that I've been wearing upwards of five or six years, and they're still in good shape.
The next step, once I go through my clothes, is figuring out the best thing to do with the extras. I don't want to dump it all someplace where it'll just get thrown out and I don't think much of it could be sold.
