i wouldn't discourage them from buying it. and i don't thinks its weird or what not to have one or two of the same pieces.. as long as you guys don't wear it on the same day.

Lol! This makes me laugh because I did it all the time to my cousin when I was a kid. We had soo many same stuff. I often lie when it comes too... when the same person keep asking me where did I bought this and that. wtv..

It depends on how close the friend is, cuz I'd feel like a major asshole if she saw me wearing it. If it was someone I rarely see.... then who knows? I might.

my friends and i have similar tastes so alot of the time we want to get the same things but we seem to pull them off differently with our own personal style... so if we see something we love we usually get it :)

I wish I did once - ended up wearing an ugly dress to an important event. And I saw the pretty (and flattering) one first.

No... thats just mean

I wouldn't because I really don't care about owning something that a friend has. unless we are both shopping for the same event or something like that; in that case I would let her buy it...

If you're the same size, encourage her! You get to borrow it :) lol

No that would be incredibly silly and juvenile. I would never discourage a friend from getting something nice for herself and if I wanted it I would buy it too. One or two items in common is not going to make us wardrobe twins and if it were the last one I would let her know I like it too, but she still found it first and I would hope maybe we could share.

No way! That's really dishonest. I think that's a horrible way to treat a friend. If there are no others in my size, I just give it up as a lost cause. Or, if my friend doesn't mind, I'll buy the same thing; I don't mind having similar clothing (as long as we don't wear it on the same day)!

NOOOOO way thats really tacky! Me & my friend can both own the same thing, i dont care. It just proves that we are such good friends that we think alike & like the same clothes

No, I don't think so. A friend and I actually bought the same ring and we always wear it.

I wouldn't discourage my friend because I'd just borrow it later or I'd probably buy it anyway it wouldn't matter if she bought one too.

haha I've definitely done that. Most of the time I end up just admitting that I love it too, and we both end up getting it.

Haha, no we'd prob both just buy it. My friend and I have the exact same pair of BCBG brown leather loafer business pumps bc the sale was too good for us to resist :).
