The other day I faced an etiquette conundrum. I was at a popular bar when a girl walked in wearing the same dress I was wearing. I’ve debated the virtue of a Target dress for years. They are cute and very reasonably priced. As we’ve already discussed, we love dresses. It’s practically all I wear from May to September. (I actually put on jeans for the first time in weeks the other day. It was weird.) Each summer I usually pick up two or three cute dresses at Target. The only problem with Target dresses is that they are a mass product. Thousands of other girls are wearing them as well. So its inevitable that you’ll see someone wearing the same dress you are out and about.
My conundrum is though, if you walk into an event wearing the same dress as another girl who has already been there, do you sit/stand right next to her?
The guy on the other side of me at the bar pointed it out. The girl herself admitted she probably shouldn’t sit next to me wearing the same dress.
Normally I wouldn’t have thought too much of it. If it was me walking in, I would have found another spot in the room so as not to bring attention to the situation.
Maybe I’m being a little silly. What are your thoughts on seeing someone out wearing the same thing? Do you love Target’s summer dresses too?
