Do You Buy Different Colors in the Same Design?

Guilty! When I REALLY like a certain piece of clothing, I purchase the other colors as well. Here's an example: Madewell's Casey Dress in silk is to die for. I love the simple cut of the dress and the slimming effect of the fit and flare style. I first purchased it in black a few months ago. It was incredibly versatile. In it's plain state it is perfect for simple days. If I add a leather belt, it becomes a tad dressier, and with a jeweled belt, it is upgraded for fancier nights out. Being, sleeveless, you'd think this is just for warmer weather, but add a chunky sweater and a belt, tights and boots and you have a wintery outfit. 

The only downside is that it is silk, thus dry clean only. Well, I can wear it a few times without it being too disgusting right? 

I then purchased the same dress in Mint and Fuchsia. I'm obssessed. Now it is almost sold out. The fuchsia one is still available on Shopbop's sale page for 70% off (here)! In terms of sizing, it runs a little large. I wear a size 0.

Here is the dress: 

Might have gone a little overboard? But I know that I'll be wearing these dresses often and forever, especially if I can keep the drycleaning up haha!

Thanks for reading!

Such a beautiful dress! I think they look great in each colour so definitely worthwhile buying all 3, especially if you wear it often :)

I'm guilty too. But these dresses are so cute. I especially like the pink one.

I am guilty of the 'multi-buy' as well. Nice choice with the is very versatile and looks great!

Those dresses look amazing on you! I really want to get that Madewell dress in the colors they offer this spring, but I hope they put out some bright colors like the pink you have. Thank you for posting these photos - it is so helpful to actually see the item on bloggers and get a more accurate idea of the dress than from the store website. I definitely buy items in multiple colors if I love them, and I expect I will probably buy both colors this spring.
