What I Wore: Party Pants

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

Fashion Advice

I'm wondering if you have any resources or suggestions for someone who is trying to minimize their closet. I'm moving towards capsule wardrobes and limiting my shopping, so this is leaving me with some very high-quality items (though not necessarily designer) already in my closet that I'd like to sell to get some money back, especially since a few of them have never been worn or worn only once!
