not mixing brands

Hi,
Lately, I have an annoying/nitpicky quirk when trying to come up with coordinates. I want them to exist of items of the same brand. It doesn't have anything to do with wanting to be "loyal to a brand" or something, but more that I get frustrated with my outfit and think it looks "messy" when it contains several brands. I don't mind offbrand shoes but then it has to be a replica of the brand I'm wearing. I also don't mind offbrand clothing at all but then EVERYTHING has to be offbrand/handmade. I am considering buying new Bodyline shoes even though I already have white shoes, to match my "all Bodyline" outfit. I know its a bit crazy and well...not very good for ones wallet.
I think outfits from a combination of brands/brands with offbrand can look very original and I hate it when I "cannot" combine several things I really like(...apart from each other), but I think its much harder to make an outfit with mixed brands look "right". (A bit like the "is coordinating easier if you own only brand" I know but more "if you own only things of the SAME brand" and not neccesarily a set with matching socks etc but also solid colored items, for example.)
Can anyone relate? Thanks very much if you reply, also if you cannot relate at all *~*
