Buying Multiples aka Things I Swear By

Jun 20, 2013

When I find something I really love I frequently buy another.  I figure if I love it that much I need two of them.  Case and Point: 

Rag and Bone Jeans

I first bought the Midnight wash and loved them so much I promptly snagged the Kensington wash.  I swear by these jeans, best jeans ever.  They are so flattering and comfortable I will most likely buy another pair post baby.  I also own the white in the high rise– best fitting white jeans ever.

Rag and Bone Newbury Booties

Are you starting to think I am obsessed with Rag and Bone?  I kind of am.  So you all know I bought the Gray Newbury Booties, then a few weeks ago I won a gift card to Hampden Clothing and what did I use it for but another pair of the Rag and Bone Booties.  They are the best!  The Newbury Boots in Petrol are currently onsale at Hampden for 40% off, a real steal- the price does not show up online so if you want to order just call the store and they will honor the sale price for online orders-
Hamden Clothing 843-724-6373 located at 314 King Street for locals.
The Petrol color is a dark green but very neutral it almost looks black.

Velvet Gypsy Maxi

I love this Maxi Dress.  I bought my first one right after I had Sterling and I lived in it that Summer.  It is such an easy maxi dress.  It can be casual with flip flips or easily dressed up with a statement necklace and other jewelry.  I own black and gray.

JBrand Cut-Offs

Confession I actually own four pairs of these- blue, white, coral, and royal blue.  That shows you how much I love them.  I even went so far as to buy the Maternity version.  These are my favorite shorts.

JCrew Vintage Cotton V- Neck Tee

These are my favorite tee shirts.  I probably own about 5-6 of them.  They are great for casual wear with jean shorts or jeans.  I think they have a really flattering fit.  They are long and not too tight which I like.

Tracy Anderson DVDS

So this is obviously not a clothing item, but I am hooked on these DVDs.  It started with Tracy’s Mat workout DVD which lead me to the Metamorphosis DVDs which now has lead me to the Pregnancy Project.  I love them and swear they are such a good workout.  I have really been into the Pregnancy one it is not too hard of a workout and I always feel sore afterwards.

What about you?  When you find something you love do you buy another one or two?  What else should I add to my multiples list?

    Totally with you on the Rag & Bone — best jeans and booties ever! Love the maxi, too.

  2. Ally says:

    I have a confession after you raved about the white rag and bone jeans in previous posts I ordered myself a pair and LOVE them! I wear them so much I'm always finding a new stain each week so I'm having to wash them so often! I guess that's the downside to white jeans. I'm dying to get some more pairs in other washes!

  3. Love your picks. That gypsy dress looks amazing.

  4. completely agree with the rag and bone assesment. Best jeans I have ever worn. Ever. I'm going to treat myself to another pair this fall. I seriously wore my last pair five or six days a week through fall and winter. Thoughts on the lighter color? I'm guessing it won't make my legs look as skinny but I kind of like the casual look. And I also buy multiples of staples. Best way to shop.

    I love that I am not the only one that does this! If you find a good thing, why not have two or six šŸ™‚

  6. I need to get some Rag & bone jeans!! I bought 2 pair of these Lucky denim cut offs that I love. I do the same thing. šŸ™‚

  7. Ashley says:

    Rag & Bone has amazing everything. They're jeans are the best and those booties need to be mine!

  8. Meredith says:

    I will have to try a pair of those Rag & Bone jeans! I am obsessed w/those J Crew tee's too… they are the best.

  9. I have never tried Rag & Bone. But I love a good v-neck! Love the boots!

  10. Love those booties, and I also have a couple of those jcrew tees šŸ˜‰

  11. All are super cute items! The Old Navy vintage tees look just like the J. Crew ones, but you can usually snag them for around $7 each!

  12. Christina says:

    I feel like those jeans would suck in all the fat! I've never tried theirs. Must check out stat!

  13. Christina says:

    Warning on the petrol color for the booties – I ordered them and they are pretty green. I wasn't expecting that and sent them back. Too bad because they are so cute and comfortable.

  14. J and A says:

    I am doing the pregnancy project too!! Love it so far!

  15. I love Rag and Bone jeans as well! Those maxis look super comfy.



  16. Morgan S. says:

    I would love to try on the Rag & Bone brand jeans…but I can't afford one pair, much less TWO! Lucky you! Oh, and tip – It's "case in point". I love the items on your list. Never tried Tracy Anderson Method, hope the preggers one is good – you look great!

  17. Hmm I think I must find out the wonderfulness that is Rag & Bone jeans.

  18. Arielle Wren says:

    Are the petrol booties the only color on sale at Hampden?

  19. Anne says:

    I always LOVE your picks! Ever since you posted about the Rag & Bone jeans I've been intrigued, but haven't had a chance to try them on yet. Must make a priority!

    Love that maxi & J Crew tees too!

    Think I'm gonna pull the trigger on the Tracy Anderson mat dvd. You have me convinced.

  20. Megan says:

    I do this too! I did this with my favorite ballet flats (believe it or not PAYLESS!! ) my favorite tshirts are the vnecks from the pink collection at VS and the old navy ones (I stock up when they are $3) and I do this with cardigans and blazers! I have a hard time finding ones that don't gap (I am busty) but that I am not swiming in since I am a 4-6.

  21. Taylor says:

    I swear I always am like "yes!!!" when I read your posts. rag and bone jeans have changed my life (my mom actually got me addicted to them), and I have the booties but in the identical cheap version that vince camuto made! my j.brand shorts are the best jean shorts ever – and you know I have a love/hate relationship with tracy because her workouts are so amazing! all great choices! I have those j.crew shirts too but have lost my grey one which was my favorite – i need to order a new one asap!


  22. Jen Watts says:

    Tracy Anderson's post pregnancy workout is amazing- my fav ever!
    My sister is 5 months pregnant and has bought 4 gap t shirt dresses- whatever works!
    I love that maxi dress! I need to get it!

  23. Alicia xoxxo says:

    I am in love with those boots! Must have. And I swear by the JCrew t's as well. The best. I buy multiples of stuff that I love as well.

  24. Love all these picks- and your skinny mini bod def has me interested in the Tracy Anderson DVDs now.
