Most of my closet consists of thrifty secondhand & vintage finds. I'm cheap(well, more like practical!) and like my clothes to be unique. I think it's important to buy your wardrobe from a large variety of shops as well, never brand yourself with one or two stores - you'll never have your own style!
One area I'm willing to spend some extra $$$ in are my shoes. The older I get, the more quality means to me. I'm done with shoes that only last one season, what a waste of money! These are my current favorites from my closet.... well, the Dulce boot hasn't even arrived yet - they were a Gilt.com impulse buy, but I think they're neat. :)
