Great Minds Think Alike



My sister-in-law & i bought the same dress when we were shopping in L.A. As I was getting dressed for church last Sunday, I had a passing thought "I wonder if she's going to be wearing this dress today too... that would be funny." When we saw each other that morning, we both screamed and laughed out loud... what were the odds we'd both be wearing it on the same day, styled almost the same way. You can imagine how many times people at church asked us if we planned to show up like twins. Haha!

Have you shown up to an event where someone was wearing the same thing?

Denysia said...

So cute! I haven't done that yet!

At least you both look great!

It's different with guys--I've been in meetings at which every guy in the room was wearing dark blue pants and a lighter blue shirt. If one guy is different he gets teased about not reading the memo.

My mother-in-law used to dress my wife and older sister exactly alike on a regular basis. It looks odd in the old pictures.

Super sweet dresses.

At least you both look good and it's not like you're wearing matching velour track suits...remember those?!

MizzJ said...

Haha so cute, you should've totally just ran with it and said it was intentional!

RYC: There's a fancy name for it, but basically the doctor clips underneath the tongue to free it. I looked at my tongue in the mirror for I don't know HOW long after I heard the story when I was a kid. But it just looks completely normal. Although, it's not like I've seen a lot of other tongues to compare it to. LOL!

Hheeh yesss so many times when I was in Hong Kong! Many little boutique shops get a lot of the same items from the same distributor (or buy as a big buying group) and carry the same items for cheap. My friend and I always shopped at these places and we'd always see girls wearing the same things as us on the street...most of the time, they'd be teenagers...a little bit embarrassing I think. You just hope that you look better than them wearing the same outfit XD

In high school, my friend had a blue sweater very similar to mine, and we had the same backpack and wore jeans. Our hair was about the same length and our names are pronounced the same! People always mistakened us from behind haha and we would always turn when they called us since our names are pronounced the same =p

Wenny Yap said...

Both of you did add a little variation here and there ... so it's not totally identical but still, you two look great!

I've never experienced such coincidence at any personal gatherings but definitely there's just one too many times I'd bumped into a stranger wearing the same T as mine!

Meream said...

Hahaha! You two look adorable.
Love this photo, with the light and all. :)

DinaXYYan said...

That's such a cute coincidence! Sometimes my sister and I do that too but I feel really weird if that happens hehe

Well this happen with me. I was in a shopping mall and my friend come with the same t-shirt that i was wearing.
Other time happen with me the same thing and the girl who wore the same t-shirt that i wore didn't stop to look at me. The difference between our t-shirt was: in her seems like she bought a small size, so she look like a bitche, and mine was in right size.

Ahaahaa I love it!!

I've never worn the same thing AT the same time but I have seem things I own on other people and it's always kinda like o_o; what? :P

Shingo T said...

Haha, haven't had the chance to wear the same shirt as anyone. Must be because no one likes my "outdated" fashion sense.

At weddings, I refrain from wearing white long sleeves with black trousers. Don't want to be mistaken for a waiter. =p

hellomissa said...

Hahaha! Same thing happened to my co-worker (who is also a good friend) and I. One day I decided to wear my purple jeans that I RARELY put on, and a white tee. What were the odds she'd be wearing a white tee with purple jeans?! I mean, who even wears purple jeans nowadays. We even had gray sandals on. o_0

Oh and by the way I LOVE THE DRESS. <333 ^_^
