'TIL DEATH DO US PART

On Friday night just gone I was lucky enough to attend a the wedding reception of on of my boyfriend's school chums - Mr Well Done looked super handsome, the groom looked dashing and so proud of his new bride who was an absolute vision, and as for me, after hours of deliberating what to wear, was caught in the same dress as another guest. NNNOOOOOO!!!

I managed to make it through the night by telling myself that it looked better on me, stuffing myself with potato wedges and cake, and listening to funny stories about my boyfriends younger days. Despite the wardrobe mishap, I had a genuinely lovely time and wish the newlyweds a truly happy future together.

I tries to go for a '70s style hair do to match the dress with the center parting and lift at the crown, did it work? Here are a few pictures with the camera flash on to show the lovely metallic thread that runs through the dress.




Have you ever went to an event or special occasion etc and noticed someone else wearing the same thing? It sure is awkward!

  1. Aww man that sucks, I often see people wearing the same dress as me on nights out and get irrationally angry because I'm drunk, oops! I'm sure it did look better on you though, it's so pretty!

    1. Thanks Faye!
      I just spent the whole night making sure I was on the other side of the room from her - I had to wait a while to hit the buffet though!

  2. And stunning you looked too. I am positive you must have looked much better in yours!

    I've had it happen when we were at a big works do, luckily it was one of the higher management who was wearing it and made a point of telling me I had great taste. Got me notice by the bosses and hasn't hurt my career either!

    1. Thanks Rach, It made me feel like a right disco diva, but since I had really painful joints from a virus I couldn't dance - the cruel irony!

  6. Well done! I love this dress, it look as though it was made of magic! *.* And the silver details are great, I've always loved silver. :D
    And I haven't seen anyone dressed up exactly as I am, but it would sure be an awkward situation. :S It happens to me and my best friend sometimes, we choose the same accessories or something like that, but we think it's super. :D
    I'm following you now .:D If you want, you can find me on: http://the-wandering-heart.blogspot.com

  8. Love your clutch! Luckily, I don't think there's ever been a big event I've been to where I've been wearing the same thing as someone, but it's bad enough when you see someone wearing the same thing on a day to day basis!

  9. I love that, really suits your fab figure. I like how you styled your hair to match. It's often forgotten about.

    I've never had the same dress at an event but have seen people in clothes I own...lucky escape.

  11. The dress is so lovely and I love the silver accessories! I have been somewhere where someone was wearing the same thing and I think it's ok because I'm sure yours was styled completely differently! You looked great!

  12. That's such a pretty dress and I LOVE your clutch! Ah no, what a dilemma! Bet you DID look better though ;) I remember going out one night and seeing some girl I hated in the same dress as me, never wore it again haha xxx

    1. Thanks Josie , you are always so nice to me!
      I would have shredded the dress - there is a particular girl I hate and if I saw her wearing the same as me there would be an "accidental" spill of red win...on her of course!
