I've got a big birthday coming up and am having a girls night out on Saturday. I was with a friend in town and (encouraged by her) bought some ridiculously marvellous shoes to wear. Yesterday she tells me she liked them so much she's bought herself a pair and is going to wear them on Sat. AIBU to be a bit cross. They're very unusual shoes so we will look ridiculous if we both turn up in them so now I feel I can't wear them.

don't be daft. if you like them wear them. stuff what anyone else thinks...

fanjobanjowanjo Wed 06-Jul-11 12:27:37

Exactly, don't be daft. Just concentrate on looking better than her! Chances are you'll dress them up differently anyway.

I would be annoyed. I wouldn't wear them and would tell her the reason why. She probably won't care because she obviously doesn't think it's a problem. If someone was coincidently wearing the same as me, I would think it was funny and point out we both have great taste! Copying on purpose is a bit weird isn't it?

Is she usually so stalkery?

PaintedToenails Wed 06-Jul-11 12:53:49

Can we please see a picture? Mmmmmm....shoes.....

I would be really pissed off by this and imho if it's your occasion on Saturday, you get first dibs on the shoes

thinks...at last! A serious issue on MN grin

she knows she is being a cow, thats why she has said to you that she is intending to wear said shoes on sat. so either wear them with pride my dear just to piss her off because that is really mean or go back out find some other truly tremendous even better shows just to show her up. that really is a low blow.

Glubs Wed 06-Jul-11 13:01:54

grin I know it's trivial but just wondered what you all thought. Usually I wouldn't mind (she bought identical sandals to me last summer, which was fine). It's just that as you say, it's MY night. I don't mind her having them just want her to not wear them one this one occasion.
I shall just have to make sure my outfit is fabulous I guess. smile

CurrySpice Wed 06-Jul-11 13:05:53

It's not trivial Glubs. It's shoes!! <tuts>

Uninvite her to your party then <evil>

mascarpone Wed 06-Jul-11 13:25:33

Wear them. If anyone comments say "oh yes they are fabulous aren't they? I bought them out shopping with X and she liked them so much she went back and bought another pair!" smile

Arf at *CurrySpice grin

TrillianAstra Wed 06-Jul-11 14:07:42

Refuse to use her name and call her "my little copycat" all night

ENormaSnob Wed 06-Jul-11 14:11:50

I would be very pissed off.

I have a friend that has started to copy me.

It's not flattering, it's extremely irritating.

Call her bluff and tell her that you are wearing your shoes with your outfit as you bought them for your b'day night out - ask her innocently if she thinks you will both look silly in the same shoes a bit like twins? You could even talk about wearing the same outfit?!!!!! grin she sounds like a cow esp. If she knew they were for your b'day night. She's laid claims on them which is mean so bluff her. Is she meeting at your house- if she actually turns up in them you can change into others and never go shopping with her again!!

Playdohinthewashingmachine Wed 06-Jul-11 15:03:36

Def tell her that you will be wearing yours too. She's only told you she's wearing them so you can decide not to wear yours.

And then what mascarpone said.

Glubs Thu 07-Jul-11 19:23:16

Now then, I don't know if one of you has cast a spell but.....my friend has just texted saying she's twisted her ankle so could I take her DD to school tomorrow. She added that she hopes to make it on Sat but 'will need to dig out my flats'.

Trying SO hard not to grin

pinkytheshrinky Thu 07-Jul-11 19:28:11

I have someone who copies me too - I have told her off about it and it makes fuck all difference she seems to think it is a compliment to my style (and also makes her children look like mine too!)

confused

mascarpone Thu 07-Jul-11 22:12:44

Hee hee! Sorry, couldn't resist a little snigger at your news Glubs. Have a good time!

joric Thu 07-Jul-11 23:02:45

Glubs- so sorry about your friends ankle (!) has she read this thread by any chance?

LolaRennt Fri 08-Jul-11 02:17:51

Could we have a link to the shoes in question?
