What is your definition of 'basic' pieces? To me, they must be versatile, flattering and comfortable. Just like the LBD, my basics must go with everything else in the closet. It took me so long to convince myself to splurge on basics instead of trendy fashion...because on days when I have 'nothing to wear', I always go back to the same few.
