It is not a nightmare when you friend or another woman has the same dress
Do you remember that Dynasty TV soap opera of the 80s? For my German readers, this TV series was called Der Denver Clan when it run on the ZDF. Do you recall that episode where Krystle, the new wife, and Alexis, the ex-wife, nearly bought the same gown? Of course, they were enemies for the drama of that soap opera, and the same choice of dress meant a drama for them as well.
In Fairbanks, it happens often that one of my girl friends have the same piece when I buy an item at Fred Meyers. Two of my dance friends, for instance, have the same dress (shown in the photo below). Thus, when I wear it to a dance, I always have a spare in my bag to change, if needed. So do they. Who comes first to a dance event with the dress, will keep the dress on. Who comes second or third will switch into their spare. Interestingly, we never had made the effort to show up on purpose all in that dress at once just for the fun of it. 🙂
Full disclosure, Alaskans who like a garment buy it in all colors they like. This means I have the dress shown above in three different colors.
Two bloggers who bought a leather fit-and-flare dress each
Do you know my friend Linda, the blogger at A Labour of Life? She bought a fit-and-flare leather dress in the Nordstrom Annual Sale, as did I. Of course, we did not know about it until the outfit post. Having the same dress never stopped us from posting new styling ideas.
Linda and I do not only have the dress in common, but also have to style the dress for a cold climate region. She lives in eastern Canada, well what an Alaskan calls eastern Canada. I live in Interior Alaska. In both regions, the Canadian high often governs the weather. She is at its eastern side, I am on its western side. When the high extends more to the west, cold air is produced in the Interior of Alaska. When the high moves eastwards cold, dry air moves into her region.

The next photos show two other examples of how Linda styled her fit-and-fare dress. Visit her blog to see more.

As you can see, our outfits look quite different from each other. This is also true when we both go for a black and white theme. This means personal style is key, not the dress itself.
When you have personal style you don’t need to fear any woman who has the same dress unless she is a copycat.
Did it happen to you that your girlfriend, BFF, colleague or another woman showed up with the same dress? How did you react? Did it bother you? Were you upset? If so, what did you do? Let me know, I am curious.
