There’s nothing more mortifying, and annoying, than walking into a room and spotting someone wearing the exact same thing as you. You want to laugh it off and joke about having the same taste, but that red-faced embarrassment is kind of hard to avoid, especially when everyone else begins to notice and point it out too. Now imagine that six times over. At a wedding. Because that’s exactly what happened at a recent ceremony in Sydney, Australia.
Debbie Speranza took to social media to share a photo of her and five other women at the affair — all wearing the exact same navy blue lace pencil dress. Ugh. The shame.
“You really should start a bridal registry so that your customers can enquire whether anyone else has purchased one of your dresses for the same event,” Speranza wrote. “No we are NOT the bridesmaids just the guests. Think I deserve a gift voucher for all this advertisement.”
Hey, at least they’re all in good spirits. Clearly after they realized it would take too long to go home and change, but nothing a few trips to the open bar couldn’t help.
The dress is from Forever New, a Melbourne-based brand that has 250 stores around the world. If you peruse their website, there are dozens of dresses these ladies could’ve chosen. Guess this is what happens when you don’t consult your pals about your dress and all have the same taste. Great minds, right?
The Debbie Lace Pencil Dress is described as “perfectly tailored to flatter and accentuate your figure,” so it’s no wonder it was so popular. Because who doesn’t want that? The store also called it “entrance-worthy.” Ha. Bet they had no idea just how many entrances it could make it one night.
