My friend is trying to BE me?

Now I don't mean "I wore TRs first and now she's copying my style", it's more a matter of her purchasing all of the exact same items that I have bought, to the point that we have actually shown up places in identical outfits. She has now cut her hair exactly like mine, and has chosen to decorate her home in the same colour palette and furnishings as mine. At first it was flattering, but now it's getting kinda creepy. And in fact it has been other friends who have noticed what's been happening...they even joke that she is my SWF. I feel somewhat childish for even bringing this up, but I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had this happen to them, and how did you or would you handle this situation? Oh, BTW she is now trying to move into our neighborhood as well.

That has to be annoying. Maybe you could try to approach her in a nice way about it? You do have a great style so I don't blame her for trying but she needs to be a little more creative and not so blatant about trying to copy you.

I would probably just be nice about the whole thing. She is trying to find herself by being you. lol

You need to report to the SWF thread. There are advices for these kinds of problems there.

Is she a good, longtime friend or someone new? I would perhaps try to joke about it and say something like, "are you trying to be me?" or "people are saying you're trying to take over my identity like in SWF." If she's not aware of how's she's coming across then that might give her an idea that it's obviously too much.

I've had this happen to me recently as well (although not nearly as blatant as your friend). I don't usually mind as long as my friend and I aren't wearing the same things when we go out and we don't live in the same city. I don't much like being twins and wearing identical clothing as if we were in junior high. I was somewhat annoyed that she hid the fact that she bought the same earrings and wore them out the same night, so I can only imagine how annoyed you are.

If you have to deal with her often, I would just not shop with her, not reveal where you buy your things and pretty much try to explain to her what OTHER things would look good on her.

LOL! That was the exact advise I was going to give!

No...seriously, from now on, every time you are with her, dress really poorly, don't do anything with your hair...no make up. See if she copies that! Also, I wouldn't be home alone with her...creepy!

^We've been friends for about 8 years now. This has never happened before because we have always had very different styles...but I don't know what happened

^


I have tried to make comments when she shows up wearing the same things as me like "Would you stop acting like my mini-me!", but she just laughs it off and says "I can't help it!" The clothes thing, while annoying, I can deal with...it's everything else. How creepy is it to go over to your friend's house and feel like you're in your own house? It's like the Twilight Zone

Can be annoying, but take it as a compliment.

I am trying to look on the bright side of all of this. Originally my hubby thought I should take it as a compliment, which I'm trying to do, but lately he's even voiced how weird this all is.
