Fashion publicist Alison Brod: "When the opportunity strikes to buy more than one of something, I can't resist. Hard to find pumps show up at Barneys in two colors ... I take two. Extra soft cashmere sweater in slightly different shades of pink? Two, in case something happens to the first. And maybe a third to leave in the Hamptons ... I wanted a discount on a dress last season, and because I am so accustomed to receiving discounts, I called the brand and asked about their wholesale minimum buy. I ended up going to the showroom and buying 11 dresses (again, multiples) just to save a few hundred dollars." [Madison Avenue Spy]
