Some Rules Were Meant to be Broken

6.18.2011






( F21 entire outfit except my Target sunglasses )

I have this rule I try to enforce which is "never buy the same thing twice in a different color". It's my lame attempt to save money as well as to force myself to introduce new articles of clothing into my closet instead of the same ol' thing. Now that I'm looking at my wardrobe, I see that I'm not very efficient at following my own rule. I have two of the same dresses, blouses, shorts, rompers, skirts, and even shoes... but in a different color. Way to go, Rachel. You little rebel you (input sarcasm here). Even my skirt, does it seem familiar? In my defense, this skirt was only 5 bucks. How could I not say "yes!!" yet again?

  2. okay, I'll think I can make you feel a little bit better about breaking your own rule. I have this one cardigan in 12 (!!!!) colors. Yes. 12x the same cardigan. In my defense: It just goes with everything and it's so easy! haha ^^ And I love this skirt! x

  3. 5 bucks you cant say no to! I do this too much. Last year i bought a pair of shoes in black, red, green, silver and gold and only EVER wore the black ones. Shopping fail on my part!

  5. I really love the stripes with stripes mix here, it looks very lovely. I very rarely find something I really love that comes in two different colours/patterns, so when I do I get so excited! I have 2 of the same blouses and 2 of the same dresses but thats it. The way I see it if it's a different colour you can style it differently then?

  7. Haha, yeah, I feel pretty bad now I think about it haha ^^ but I've forced myself to buy different styles of caridigans as of late and I'm doing pretty good ^^

    Rome is a beautiful city :) I live in Europe so for me it's easy to go there. I am always jaleous of the Americans. Yellowstone, The canyons, the lakes and even the little historic town look so amazing! and I even think the American sidewalks rock! x

  8. Why not buy the same item in different colors is it fits well, it's versatile, and you love it? I say GO FOR IT!

  12. WHOA....

    You're reeeeeealllly pretty. Like, insanely pretty. Like, gorgeously beautiful. I don't even know how else to describe you.

    Hey, don't worry. I have a certain shirt in four different colors.

  13. I feel your pain. It become the issue of: "well, I like it and it's cheap, so shouldn't I buy three?" versus "it's unique and different, but kinda expensive...". I'd say that skirt is well worth the repeat, though!

  14. Haha! That is completely fine. I bought a blouse in black and white last weekend. Good choice. You look so cute!

  19. A lot of people have a different take on that - if it looks good and you like it than you should get multiples. BUT I'm with you, I think its better to try and have more diversity.

    Either way, I love your stripes on stripes, and if you wanted to buy a million striped things, in every possible color, I'd be here cheering you on.

    Chic on the Cheap

  22. This is such a good summer look! I love those sandals! I often buy the same clothes in lots of colours, I probably shouldn't but when I find something I like I tend to like lots of the colours.
