This week in the past: post-winter break boredom, preparing for Europe, trips to Bloomington, and a call to action re: a classic wardrobe.

I take gambles.
I do things I shouldn’t, or that others say I shouldn’t, but I let myself just go on.
It’s like that, you know.
I am not one for settling.
I love so many goddamn people.
Someday I will get myself in trouble.
But until then…
Yes, until then…
For the next two weeks, I will not be here. I will be unaccessible. I will miss you like crazy, and vice versa.
But at the same time…
So, knowing me I will end up posting before I leave tomorrow. But I would prefer I not. This is part of my New Year’s Resolution, but no one is to know what it is.
Yeah, that’s all part of the game…
Have fun, be safe, leave me a shitload of messages…get drunk, call me, leave messages…e-mail me, love me, come and find me.

I am totally starting my wardrobe over from scratch. I’ll be going through this weekend and deciding what of my existing clothing I will keep and get rid of everything else. Then I will be shopping (A LOT) to start all over!!!
I have asked a few people what they consider essential items, and this has been the input so far:
1) black dress that works for both work and play
2) black or grey pants
3) a cardigan
4) t-shirts from the Gap or similar store
5) a great pair of jeans
6) button down shirts
7) a skirt
Now, not including workout clothes, lazy-not-leaving-the-house clothes, and suits (both swimming and professional), what are five additional items of clothing you cannot live without?
I am looking for non-trendy items that can form the backbone to any good wardrobe–simple, easy to mix-and-match or layer. I’m going for the greatest possible utility here! I am usually one of those people who finds a top I really like and then end up buying it in EVERY SINGLE COLOR, and while that is good for t-shirts, it has resulted in me having a very unbalanced wardrobe!
Also, any tips on great places to shop for CHEAP (again, MAXIMUM UTILITY!) would also be appreciated! I want the most bang for my buck! I’m an inpatient shopper who hates crowds and digging through piles of crap.
