Yep! This has happened to me quite a few times. Soom Beryl was my very first (but I discovered her after she was sold out). Then came Soom Cuprit (who I put on layaway within hours of seeing her full sale photos). Soom Migma was another - I'd had a looong dry period of not being wowed by Soom's dolls, and then fell completely head over heels for her in the Light Violet skin tone. I also fell hard for Rosette School of Dolls Delilah, but originally passed on her because she was released on a Muse (43cm) body. When they had a Free Choice Event where I could get her on the Pure (47cm) body - and in Brown Tan! - I jumped on her right away. I think that if you have a very limited budget, or are planning on restricting yourself to only a few dolls no matter what, it's better to wait for a doll that you love at first sight. I enjoy all my dolls, but the ones I loved at first sight will always be a bit more special than the rest of my collection.
