Who Wore It Best


Has this ever happened to you? Well, it has happened to me...twice in the last year and both times at wedding receptions! I am waiting for my friend Heather's wedding photos to have a "who wore it best" feature starring me and the other girl. Actually, I am not embarrassed by it at all. I just think it's funny and I think it's even funnier that it's been so frequent recently. We both had on different accessories and everything so the dress had a different look on both of us. Grant and I got in the car and I asked him the question, "who wore it best?" and he laughed and said, "you did" which was the right (and only) answer. We were also talking about how it's happened to me recently and he asked me where the dresses were from. I told him the first dress was from F21 and the second was from Target. Not exactly exclusive stores. What he said next was music to my ears. "We are going to have to make it so you can shop at boutiques so that this won't happen to you." He was so sensitive to every woman's worst nightmare: showing up at the party in the same dress as someone else! I don't really care about that so much as the idea of shopping at boutiques. I like this solution. Even though shopping at boutiques doesn't mean you won't show up with the same dress as someone else. Thus the "Who Wore It Best" segments in our favorite fashion magazines. Oh well. My solution is just simply go up to the other girl (whether it be a fellow wedding invitee I haven't seen before or Sienna Miller) and say, "I like your dress" and laugh the embarrassment away together. It seems to be working...

This happened to me at a wedding last year. It was a cute banana republic dress, so I wasn't surprised that someone else loved it as well. I just went up and told the girl "I love your dress! You must have really good taste :)" It made it a little less awkward, but we still tried to stay on different sides of the room.

Sometimes I see "the other girl" and she doesn't look the best in an article of clothing that I own and it makes me worried that I look the same. Oh no...I'm so vain!
xoxoxo

You must have good taste to have the "it" dress! PS, we are moving our trip to April, the GMAT studying is getting a little overwhelming to be getting out of town so soon!

I'm sure you "wore it best". I LOVE your family pics. I have a friend that is moving out to Cali soon. She has some of the same style as your pictures. Here is her website....jillthomasphotography.com. Shameless plus for her but I love her stuff and I think you would too! I hope you guys are doing well!
