When I saw Lisa’s latest post on Respect the Shoes, I nearly laughed out loud. And then I said a silent, “thank you,” glad that we don’t happen to work together or live in the same city for that matter.
But our outfits’ similarities got me thinking: I am lucky enough to say that I’ve never showed up somewhere wearing the same outfit as a friend. Sure, I’ve come close when both a girlfriend and I happened to be wearing, say, striped tops but nothing similar enough for it to be painfully obvious. However I have seen friends go through it, and I’ve noticed that they tend to find it incredibly embarrassing.
Top: J. Crew Factory printed popover, Skirt: J.Crew Factory pencil skirt (worn here, here), Blazer: Merona, Belt: Merona (similar), Necklace: Stella & Dot Bamboleo Necklace, Shoes: J.Crew Factory (worn here)
I’m not sure how I would handle it. Seeing Lisa’s post reaffirmed how much I love the polka dots against the pink pencil skirt, but in person would I feel the same way?
Have you ever worn the same outfit as a friend? How did you handle it? Did one of you decide to change?
