Double Trouble?

My husband complains that I have this bad habit of buying the same item in different colors, especially inexpensive items! I was clearing out my wardrobe the other day and I actually realised that he's right! :P

































Out of all the items, i think my worst vice has to be buying tank tops in different colors! I have almost 30 from the same brand but I'm too lazy to take them all out for pictures then fold them back again, so you'll have to see an old picture I have taken here:



This is not related (yea, rite! lol), but Cookie has her own pets in three different colors too:


Just in case you're wondering, the grey one is her favourite! lol! :D

But she loves all of them irregardless! Haha!! :D




Ok after seeing all the pictures I *think* I get why he thinks that i'm crazy! But all of the items above are sooo cheappppp!! :D Oh well, at least I have lots of options to mix and match with! :P

Do let me know if you have this habit too so that my husband can stop bugging me about it already / feel better about that I know that I'm not alone! lol!! Happy weekend everyone! :D

  2. Oh my god, this post made me smile so wide just because it's so pretty to look at. Seriously doesn't it kinda cheer you up just looking at all the pretty things in pretty colours?

    My mom used to do this too! Especially shoes! If it had 4 colours, she'd get all 4. If one of them didn't have it in her size, she'd come again later or at another mall and get it to complete the collection. LOL

  5. LOL!!! I have a friend who's exactly the same! She'll even go to that extent for pre-ordered clothes from China, even when she doesn't know whether the cut/quality will be good!

    I do that as well, but only for stuff that suites me to the T :D And cheap of course :P

  15. Oh I love the strapless white and red dresses. I should buy more of an item I like, I always want backups. If you like an item a lot, why not buy more in different colors? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOL...I don't have this habit, but it seems very convenient and easy to match and color coordinated your outfits! XD Aww, Cookie is soo cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I find this really funny and cute xD Especially the tank tops! But tank tops are useful so no bigger. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I also buy things in doubles when it's cheap. That's the way to go! :) And that is a lot of tank tops! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Jenn but the problem with me is not the styles the color XD i have so many things SAME COLOR! or print cheeseboard style or stripes..lol

    ReplyDelete
  20. ~LOL~ Me too, I have the same habit! When I love a design and love all the colors, just couldn't made up my mind.. so ended up buying same design in different colors. hmmm... come to think of it, I should stop this habit now, wardrobe is overflowing no more space. "Controlling power" is all that I need to limit my decision when comes to this ;)

  21. Jenn! you are too cute! You made me smile with this post! I don't have the same habit as you as I like variety! The most would be 2 colors for similar design but I don't have a lot of those! :) I wouldn't mind owning different shades of tank tops though

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hahahahaha good one Jenn! Absolutely nothing wrong at all. Hey if it's gorgeous and it works, why not get it in other colours? I have the same woolen top by Country Road in 4 different colours, simply because they're good quality and look fab.

    The tank tops? BRILLIANT! :P

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have the same problem too! Especially when it comes to basic tank tops/tops, and also if they're cheap and basic! Nice to know that I'm "normal" now hahahaha :P

  24. MEOW: awww... maybe not always, once in a while? Haha!! :D

  25. Kalmo: thank you! Im personally not a fan of bubble dresses but these are too cute (and cheap) not to buy! :D

    ReplyDelete
  26. tiffyama: yes it is! Especially colorful tanks... just grab one and it will spice up an all black outfit! :D

    Thanks! I'll let Cookie know! Hehehe!! :D

  33. Stephanie: Hi 5! Cheap tank tops do wonders to soothe the bankrupt shopaholic's soul too... you know on those days when you absolutely feel that you NEED to buy something but you're dead broke? Get a cheapie tank top! Hahaha! :D

  34. HAHAHHA! I only have a few duplicates (dif colours) but if I really like something, I wouldn't mind getting it in different colours but maximum 2 pieces only.

    ReplyDelete
  35. LOL! u r so cute and totally not alone! :) but yr clothes are so good to look at! :)
    i have a similar 'disease' too !hehe i like to buy backups of the same thing e.g stationery/notepads/cute stuff . clothes?? hmm.. not so often though coz they are pricy compare to small teeny cute stuff. so i always have dilemma freezing at the store staring at rows of clothes just to pick one from so many of my fav colors!! thinking that, ya know what, i was at cotton on yesterday spending more than an hour "solely" on choosing their flats coz they're having buy 2 at 75!! to choose 1 was enough headache for me from the right size(ya, i still having difficulty choosing my own shoe size! :P like i'm still growing at 30++) to color n pattern! i was sweating going thru the whole process for flat number 2!!

    another crazy shopper. no! u r not crazy! cute yes! :)

  36. I am like you too. But tank tops in the right cut must be bought in multiple colours. M.U.S.T. =p
    And cardigans too.
    Tell your hubby it's really finding what fits well, looks good and having them in multiple colours means you're replicating the success rate (to pull them off well) 100% each time.

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOL I'm just like you too Jenn...so you're not alone! :D I've got multiple pairs of the same ballet flats, the same tops and even the same dresses, all in diff colours... ;)

  38. Isabel: thats good! You have such good self control! Haha! :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. haha!! its good that you don't have my "disease"!! >.< It gets crazy sometimes!!

    Ohhh! Im like you sometimes! I take very long to decide too at times!! Thats why i like to shop alone - most people get impatient with me! Haha!! :D

    Speaking of cotton on i havent been there yet! I really need to go soon - heard they have some pretty decent cardigans there! :D and those shoes are cheap! gotta go with a friend though so we can share - my husband will kill me if i buy more shoes! Haha!! :D

    Awww thank you!! you're cute too!! Hehehe!! :D

  40. Ivy: haha thats exactly what i told him! But then again, he's not exactly wrong when he pointed out that i have multiples of the SAME thing (ie. black tank tops)! Wooops =X
