Thursday Thoughts: On Buying Multiples

Hi Everyone!

Okay, I've acknowledged my weakness for buying multiples.  I'm wondering, however, if it's going too far to purchase multiple versions of the same shoe.  Here's my dilemma:  I own the J. Crew Viv Flats with the bow in the Henna color and I LOVE them.  Now, I can't stop looking at the same shoe in the Topiary color seen below:
This shoe is really classic, but would it be over the top to own it in 2 colors?  What do you think?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. NO! I have the black and topiary. They are a classic looking shoe that is quite beautiful. The cutest shoe J.Crew has released in a while. I say go for it. But be careful with that ultra delicate leather!!!

  2. J. CrewJD: Thanks SO much!!!! I'm glad that I am not the only person who loves this classic looking shoe! And, you're right about being careful with this delicate leather. Thanks again!

  3. I love them in that topiary color, I say go for it. They are lovely classic shoes.
    I own 2 pairs of the Valentina pump and I'd like another pair, and guess what I own SIX pairs of the JCrew espadrille sandals, my most favorite summer shoe, so I definitely believe in buying in multiples.

  5. DaniBP: Thanks SO much!! I can't stop laughing about you owning six pairs of the J. Crew espadrille sandals, and here's why: we are definitely kindred spirits!!!!

    Angie's Closet: Thanks SO much! I hear you! I just keep thinking that I'm going to regret not grabbing this color.

  6. I have Valentina pumps in Black, Coral and Red leather.
    I had them in leopard too, and the only reason I sold them on JCA exchange was that I bought them half size too big an then impatiently wore them outside only to realize that they wer sliding off even with a heel pad. Oh, well, somebody got a really good orice on them.
    To top off the Valentina madness I also have the snake skin ones. Yes, I have red leather and red snakeskin! I just love to the snakeskin ones but they re my special shoes, solid red ones I wear everywhere. I also have multiples of Reppetto flats in patent leather.
    I guess this is how I roll, you all can make fun of me :)

  7. Like Dani I also have multiples of the espadrilles but only four pairs of the slides and one of the version that had the ankle lace-up, 2007 maybe?

    Anyhoo, I support buying in multiples if it is something you truly love and will use. When you find your style, you know.

    BTW, the Fanfare skirt is on sale now. I linked up to your review on JCA so you may get some questions/comments.

  8. ajc: I'm like you when it comes to buying multiples!!! I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't overdoing it with the Viv Bow flats. I decided to grab the Topiary color too!

    xoxo: I'm totally with you! I agree that if it's something you love, you should go for it, so I did, LOL! Thanks SO much for linking to my review; I really appreciate it!!

    Thanks SO much for being here ladies!

  9. Rynetta, sorry for the horrible spelling above, please blame my iphone. I just ordered the leopard Valentinas, they came up to under $90 with 30% off. This is lower than the price I sold my too big pair and I finally used my rewards card! This has been the longest time it ever took me to spend it.

    Thanks SO much for being here!!

  11. Whatever makes you happy, I think. I have multiples of items I really liked and fitted well, and have no regrets about getting them.

  12. I think you could definitely have one dark pair and a light pair, they are real classics after all.
