As part of my 2013 resolution, I'm only making smart shopping purchases that will add value and versatilty to my closet. My secret trick so far? Make lists. Each month, I've decided to make an list of what I do not currently have but think will add to my closet. This way, instead of coming home with a shopping bag filled with impulse items, I know exactly what to look for ahead of time. I stumbled across several "investment" items at J. Crew and LOFT that are ideal for spring.
