    Does anyone else just fall in love so much with a particular find. Maybe it’s a sweater, or a real sweet skirt, a special dress or a pair of slacks. A combination of fabric colour and style that just makes you buy 2 of them maybe 3 just in case something bad happens. Heaven forbid an errant splash of red wine, something that snags and makes a tear or run. All so you don’t have to worry about finding the same one again. It’s not just me right? Other people do this to.

    ps I should say I’ve done this with 2 skirts and 4 sweaters and a dress.
    What have you bought?

      Hi Arykah

      I never buy the same item twice and some I instantly regret buying becase of the fit or some other reason. I have favourite styles mainly ‘cos they fit my body shape (or hide it as much as possible). I have a pretty undisguised masculine shape which does not go well for many different styles but some are better than others and those I collect (and wear).

      Buying more than one of and item doesn’t give each item the respect it deserves as itself… and there’s always another to buy it. Like specials in a supermarket… do you buy all the same item? Leaving nothing for other purchasers?

      xx Polly

      Usually, no, as the majority of my shopping is done through thrift shops. However, there have been some instances where I did buy the same item in different colors.

      • Sharagano utility/military style dress (5), 2 used, 3 new, all different colors
      • Marc New York short skort (4), 2 black, 2 olive, all new
      • Blair short sleeve shell (6), black, white, silver, red, yellow, mauve, all new
      • Blair sleeveless shell (3), pastel pink, pastel green, orange, all new
      • BORN one band wedge sandals (2), black, brown, all new
      • BORN criss-cross wedge sandals (2), blue, orange, all new

      I’m like that with leggings, as some of them do start to fray or rip after too much wear. I’ll usually buy two or three of the same color so I can switch out old ones more often.

      Definitely; once I find underwear – bars, vests, knickers – that fit well and are comfortable then I buy multiples. Also I found some T shirts that looked really good with my culottes (from Sea Salt https://www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk with sizes up to 28!) so I bought multiples.

      Being that women’s sizing is all screwed up, compared to men’s sizing, when I find something that fit’s I buy multiple. This summer I bought a sun dress that fit like a dream. I immediately went and bought 3 more from the same manufacturer. This fall was the same with tights. Bought a pair that fit, bought 10 more. Now I understand why my ex spent sooooo much time trying on clothes at the mall. Be safe all.

      Love and Peace,

      Amber

      Not so much in outerwear.I have similar styles but not the exactly the same.

      Underwear is a different matter. Bras are a good example. I am a popular size and I once bought a bra and it was perfect for me. When I went to buy another they didn’t have it and I kept trying to no avail. It was discontinued. Lesson learned. If I find a good one I buy multiples and different colors. Same with panties and slips.

      HI Arykah,

      Yes I do absolutely.

      Its kind of a sickness with me LOL.

      If I find some skinny jeans or shoes I like I try to get some back ups.

      I have several pair of the shiny disco pants as I get thenm when I find them for a good price.

      I do this with makeup brushes, always afraid they are going to discontinue the ones I love working with.

      I am usually pretty good in avoiding buying duplicates of clothing, but I have a few :

      boxing week sale, I was so add to cart happy that I inadvertently bought the same shrug, so now I have 2 of the same thing.

      I also have 3 of the same one piece swimsuit too.  Oh well, can never have enough swimsuits.

      Last Thursday (arrived Friday 😀👍) I purchased two more pink baby-doll nighties. So I have three pink, one dark blue and a light blue.

      Also have a pink nightgown that is sooooo comfy… don’t want to take it off in the morning. Looking for two more in large (when available)… another pink and a navy blue.

      Gen… ❤

      I buy many items in multiples sometimes.  Leggings and hosiery are the biggest, and some even come prepackaged as 2 or 3 to a pack.  I bought a black dress last summer, for fall and winter wear, with long sleeves that have a cut-out diamond pattern on them.  It is made of a stretch/cotton type of material, not sure what without going on a closet dig, and is an A-line cut to just below the knees.  The first time I wore it out, several friends made some some very good compliments on how it fit, and I loved how comfortable yet close the bodice fit.  I went out that next week and picked one up in red and one in white and they fit and feel just as lovely as the original black one.

      I have done that same thing many times over the years, same clothing but in different colors and pattern of print.  If I find it comfortable to wear and also get compliments on it also, why not change it up a bit but keep the advantages I found in the original piece.

      During my pink fog induced shopping frenzy of October through November I accidentally ordered the same article of clothing 4 times, a pair of fuzzy socks, a dress, and 2 different blouses, how blonde is that?

      Because I regularly walk my dog (2poos, or Amber to give her proper name) I am hard on hosiery and footwear that has to cope with rough ground and winter weather – which where I live is mostly mud and rain. So I buy multiples of hold-ups which end of snagging on brambles, toes wearing through etc.

      I also have to buy multiples of robust chunky-heeled ankle boots and other footwear to get me thru the winter. I get through several pairs between October and March – eventually the upper breaks away from the sole, or the sole splits across the ball of the foot.

      I  also buy different cup sizes in a bra I like, and have quite a few A-line skirts of different colours.

          Amanda dear, I do have some “short” black unisex wellies, which is what I wear when wearing His clothes. But they are not feminine enough for me!  When Stephanie is out it’s 100% femme or nothing.  Rephrase – by nothing I didn’t mean nothing. You know what I mean! I haven’t worn nothing for ages- even then I would have kept my boots on.

          I could be tempted to buy a woman’s welly if I could get size 9 minimum.

          Quiet round ‘ere innit?

      Yes, absolutely Arykah!  I’m well known to go back for seconds or thirds if I find something I love.  Sometimes different color, sometimes exact duplicate.  Girl, when ya find something that really flatters you, ya got to!! 😅

      I’ve been doing that most of my life, even as a guy. Bettylou’s wardrobe is much more varied, but I do buy multiples of GV jeans, undies and tights or leggings
