It’s every woman’s nightmare. After hunting to find the perfect dress and accessories someone walks into the event 5 minutes after you in exactly the same outfit. Disaster!!! That’s why I always suggest that Belle Dress Hire customers try to customise their evening looks by adding a piece of vintage, family jewelry which no one else would ever have. Or dig out a shawl or fur wrap which an old aunt left for you in their will, dust the mothballs off and again you’ll have something unique.
Unfortunately, sometimes no matter how hard we try, this situation is at times simply unavoidable.
A friend of mine, recently attended a wedding in a random separate top, belt and skirt which she pulled together into an outfit. No chance of someone turning up in the same thing, right??? WRONG! Would you believe that another wedding guest had the exact same top and shoes on but a different skirt and belt yet in the same colours in an extremely similar style. My friend found the whole thing amusing as there was simply nothing she could do, however, the other guest was not very happy at all and went home to change after the wedding ceremony.
Another situation which may occur is someone posts a photo on Facebook in the same dress/outfit that you posted yourself in a few months previous. Not only does this girl look better in the dress than you, she got 50% more likes and comments than you did!! This is something celebrities have to endure on a regular basis. Take this example, Britney Spears wearing a royal blue Herve Leger dress and Beyonce wearing practically an identical dress (although they aren’t the same designer).
Even though the dresses are from two completely different designers they look exactly the same. So….. “Who wore it better?” For me, I think both choices of footwear are awful!!!! But I like Britney’s more natural, tousled hairstyle than Beyonce’s.
Unfortunately, no matter how much you prepare and plan in advance there may just be one occasion where another girl turns up in either the same outfit or something extremely similar. So how do you react? Either you have a hissy fit which makes you look ridiculous and petty OR you simply go up to the girl, have a good giggle and get a photo taken together. Remember the scene with Miley Cyrus from Sex In The City ……
