Would you (or have you) purchased the same bag, but in different colors?
I have a Jennifer Scott bag that I love (brown) and I found another one in a pearl white. Am I foolish for buying the same bag again, but in a different color?

If you like it and you can afford it then I say buy it.

I came across a pair of shoes I really liked once upon a time and they were available in black and white and I still regret that I did not buy both colours because I liked them so much.

I do not have two of the same bag but in different colours, but I am planning on buying another Kate Spade 'sam' bag and I already have one in apple green....so I will soon.

Yes. The best advice I was given was "if you like it, buy it in every color". Well, maybe not every color. But when you find something you really love, will use a lot, and isn't too trendy (ya know, classics that will keep...since you are buying more than one) than go for it. Just make sure you really like it.

I certainly don't think it is foolish at all.

If the design of a piece of clothing/shoes/bags flatters me and i can afford it, I will buy it in whatever colours I like. Have done it before with my shoes and tops.

People can't really tell anyway. It will look like you are wearing different tops/shoes/bags everyday

I have two MJ Venetias in different colors, and, when I find comfortable and stylish shoes for work, I'll buy more than one pair (especially Donald Pliner). There are so few terrific shoes that I can wear at work (my boss's office is three city blocks away) that when I find a great pair, I order a few.

I will do it with say jeans or shirts... causal type things, but I don't like doing it with my shoes or bags. I dunno, for some reason it doesn't feel as special for me if I have more than one coulor in the same bag or shoe.

I have done this with shoes.. I think.. but just like simple flats and stuff in different colors...

and whenever I find a good top and it comes in fun bright colors I tend to buy every color I like... I am my mother's daughter... she always does this!

But with handbags... I go for bright fun colors.. but tend to like more variety like softie and dgie.
