Purple and red combo…



Today I bought this purple dress. I now own the same dress in 3 diferent colours, yellow, purple and pink.

I originally bought the yellow version at full price (£18 - my eggcellent dress) at the start of summer. I have warn it so much, you know when you just get a dress that fits well and feels comfortable, well this is that dress for me. So when it appeared in the New Look sale for £8, I picked up another two.

I've seen a lot of bloggers trying out the purple and red combo recently. I can't say I've really tried it before but thought this dress was worthy to give it a go. I think I like.

Have you ever bought the same item in multiple colours?
Did you get bored of the style quickly?

Total spent today: £8

Thats a great dress,certainly versatile in that you can wear it to plenty of places.

Okay that is too cute!
I have the same pair of jeans in two different shades of blue. When the fit is right you just don't argue!

Love it, darling... Your belt and bag are especially fab! You look gorgeous!

I totally buy in multiples when I find something I love. Case in point: my 5 pairs of J Brand jeans!

Keith said...

It looks great. I like it. Yeah, I've bought multiples of the same item in different colors. I've got shirts and sweaters like that.

I have several items I loved enough to buy in multiples! Your dress looks fab on you and was a great investment! My fave out of my twin or triplet purchases are some shoes that are GREAT and comfy...I get compliments on the all of the time!

Kristin said...

I do that with tanks all the time. And that dress looks gorgeous on you!

Charmaine said...

wow the colors are so beautiful! i would be too scared to wear any of those colors, alone more than one!
i think it would be good to get the same item in different colors if one really likes the item :D

Kari said...

I like it (the way you have done it, at least!) I think it helps to make it look very deliberate.

I've bought *some* items in multiple colors, but mostly basics like cardigans or button-down shirts if I find one that fits really well. I wear my Express short-sleeve button-downs and cardigans a LOT and have never regretted duplicating them.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Oh wow you look amazing!!! I love the colors on you!!!

I buy jeans in multiples-true religions, because they are the ONLY ones that work for me. And white tanks...
