“i have a very poor record at multiple choice questions.” // j. irving
much like the theory of multiple intelligences* i believe there is value, beyond the monetary, in accumulating those basic necessities in multiples – or even occasionally, in bulk.
who buys one pair of socks at a go, or one measly pair of boy-shorts when we all know they’re either all down to their last vestiges of elastic waist or in pristine condition – there is no middle ground. and if you’re in the market for the perfectly plain white tee, you know it’s rather unwise to buy just one, as you’ll probably be tempting fate – and your favourite brand will then discontinue your most perfect fit, and then what will you have? one ripped at the seams tee, with a red-wine stain that looks eerily similar to gorby’s birthmark.
me? i go in for multiples of – (please, spare me the soapbox – i know it’s all sorts of gross), american apparel interlock pencil skirts, bensimon plimsolls in carbon, though they’ve become exceptionally difficult to source in north america, and well, i don’t mean to buy them in costco amounts, but it always seems to be that when one new nude lip colour comes out, eight more follow suit.
then, there are those larger ticket items, that if i had my druthers, i’m bound to be decked out in them – wrists from up to down, layers of chains around my neck, and then a baker’s dozen of handbags to keep them all safe and sound.
