I know why this problem happens time and time again. I go to a store determined to purchase a basic item, reminding myself that it will expand my wardrobe options not limited it to boring black and white. Then....then....then...I spot some amazingly unique and funky item that must be purchased and my plan of getting a basic item goes right out the window. If on the off chance that I finally do find a basic the item is made for someone close to 6 feet tall with a torso of the same length (I am just over 5'2 and my torso is close to non-existent)! I hate petites because they all run small and never seem to work either. Bluh.
Where or where do you find basics that work? I am all ears? A closet full of wild colors and patterns is waiting to hear from you!!
