Spring closet cleanout? Check! I’d been feeling less and less satisfied with my wardrobe over the past few months, so I’m incredibly happy that I finally took the time to clean it out! I’ve sold about $500 worth of used clothes and shoes so far, and still have quite a bit more to go (might just end up donating). But that extra $500 is just what I need for a little wardrobe refreshing this spring.
I don’t know how it happened, but I seem to be missing a lot of wardrobe basics. Like knit tops. I went through a phase where I preferred button down shirts over knits (especially this every-blogger-must-have-it shirt). While I still like those shirts, I sometimes just prefer the comfort and ease of knits. I appreciate basic knit tops, but I love the ones with interesting details! I’m a huge fan of cowl necks and drape-y shirts, but good ones are hard to come by. Helmut Lang does have some beautiful ones out (this cardigan is one stunning example), as does Rick Owens (although he’s also known to overdo the drape sometimes… done right vs. too much). But their prices are just too high to justify, so I typically have to turn to eBay if I want to add one. Easier said than done to find a good one, though.
