I was reading Christina's thread on "Culling" which, by the way is fantastic if you haven't read it yet and Liz wrote "if one is good, eight is better." Which got me to thinking about times I've stocked up on an item, particularly one where you know it's availability will be limited. You see an item, it's a trend. You know it will have it's moment and be gone. However, it's something you love and know you would wear even and especially if it wasn't a trend...so you stock up. Has anyone ever done that? My current example would be the Rebecca Minkoff guitar straps. I wear a coach anabelle crossbody bag daily and the narrow strap is very comfortable except with prolonged wear which when I add the guitar strap. Since they are not bag specific I know I'll have them for the forseeable forever (so I needed gold, silver and a fun strap right?) Although having just been on Nordstrom's site it seems they are still going strong: Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, Alexander Wang to name a few, so I guess everyone realizes how practical they are but I still anticipate a famine in the future. Anyone else do that with "of the moment" items?
