how do you avoid the 'matching outfit' thing happening? i've just seen another recommendation for the verity dress and have got visions of people wearing it to a party and instantly realising that they're amongst MNers!
Depends who looks better in it to be fair. If it's you no problem....I would positively haunt the other person round the party striking fetching poses whilst pretending I hadn't noticed a thing.....if they look better then I would stalk them from a distance making cruel and disparaging remarks....
Haha, it happened to me when I went for an interview about 20 years ago. Woman interviewing me (was 3rd and final one) wearing exactly the same dress. I think I mouthed 'oh fuck' or something similar as she approached, she then realised, we laughed our way through the interview and I got the job.
I wore the same dress as someone to a wedding. I avoided her like the plague all night. It was a maternity dress and she looked much better in it them me as she was further along her pregnancy and had a lovely bump. I just looked dumpy. Sigh.
