we have all gained inspiration from the fashion blogs we follow, haven’t we? who hasn’t experienced that one day when we feel bored or jaded with our current rotation of outfits? then, we see a particular outfit online, be it from one of our favorite street style sites or some e-retailer’s lookbook, that inspires us. either a color scheme, a silhouette or a combination of patterns that reminds us of something we have in our closet & voilá, we now have an outfit that lifts our mood & helps us get us ready for our day! now…how about something different from that? how about viewing an outfit on the internets that you have also planned without seeing it first? with such precision & accuracy, how about an impressive synchronicity that borders on telepathically frightening?

so, lemme explain. while perusing blogs off my google reader while driving down with MDH to our thanksgiving destination (i.e. his parents’ house), i came across this post by mr. newton & almost spit out my dr. pepper! you see…without having seen this woman’s outfit first, i packed nearly the same outfit for our upcoming friday night dinner out.
check it. so, we both have the black lacy long-sleeved top with billowy sleeves. however, i have no boobage that this woman clearly has & deciding to go sans nude liner unlike me :) next, our skirts aren’t so similar…hers is longer & velvety while mine is my old rodarte for target dress & has a tulle overlay, but still, both are black skirts. next, very interesting is our choice of footwear. she has grey socks with black sandals & my silver glitter/black miu miu look-alikes from charlotte russe mimic the same effect.
now, that normally still wouldn’t have surprised me at all. c’mon..an all black lacy outfit on a street style shot? i’ve just described 3/4 of new york city. what really freaked me out was the hot pink clutch! i literally bought this clutch for $9 at the filene’s basement out going out of business sale, intending to use it as my new wallet. since i hadn’t transferred all my credit cards & other wallet innards into it, i decided to use it as a wristlet for the weekend away. it’s the same hue, same size & who would normally pair a hot pink clutch with an all-black outfit? now, is that freaky or is that FREAKY?!?!
well ok…maybe it’s not all that freaky. still, you have to admit, very strangely synchronized O.O speaking of synchronized, here are some other like-minded blogger buddies in the twitterverse! we bought these same shoes without even knowing the other was interested in it. so, maybe this extrasensory unison is not so uncommon after all…hahaha!
