Hey guys,
I'm new to the forum and in dire need of some help.
I've just gotten into "dressing up" to work and such.
I am looking for some advice on how to build up my work wardrobe without spending the big bucks because unfortunately, I am on a budget and don't make enough money to buy the quality brands most of you wear

I'm looking to buy pants,shirts,shoes, and a watch. Please keep in mind that I work in an office environment as an administrator and that I am only 19

P.S.
I just bought some Allen Edmonds cap toe oxfords for work!

Start by looking at the first couple of topics here in Styleforum 101.

Don't spend too much on clothing as at 19 your body is still going to change a fair amount over the next few years. The exception may be your shoe size so it is worth investing in good shoes.

I would say hit up places like Nordstrom rack, Macys clearence etc. Wait for sales, and check out places like TJ Maxx or Burlington. You wont find the best quality there but items will be fairly cheap.

Just got a Nordies credit card that I can use there and also at the rack so I see myself buying a fair amount of clothing from there.
