Do you and your BFF have similar fashion sense?

Are diamonds a girl’s best friend? S-e-r-i-o-u-s-l-y? Because my best friend is not some sparkling thing but a lovely woman I’ve known for over twenty years now. Yeah, that’s her, or rather, her bag in the picture. It looks kind of familiar only because I’ve got the same bag, just in a different color. And we got them together while shopping in Bangkok last year.

Nah, we don’t have that many fashion items that are similar; bags are probably the only ones as we did end up purchasing similar designs on a few occasions. But otherwise, my BFF and I have rather different standards when it comes to other fashion items. Not vastly different but we’ll probably be hard pressed to find something we can wear if we were to ransack each other’s closet. The funny thing is that we have about the same built and there were many times in the past when we were mistaken for sisters. Yet, I cannot recall an instance of us sharing or exchanging clothes. Okay maybe once when she passed me a dress she bought for herself but thought it suit me better – I never ever got down to wearing it though.

My BFF has an artistic flair and makes really nice handmade jewelry, which I’ve featured them here before. Yet, even our tastes in the designs of jewelry differ. Come to think about it, our taste in shoes aren’t similar too and despite telling her some time ago about FitFlops, she only got started on them very recently. So that’s good in a sense because we don’t look too similar when we stand together now and people no longer identify us as sisters, although being called that is not something I mind at all.

So yeah, bags are the only items my BFF and I have similar taste in. Other than bags, we have nothing that much in common and we can’t really share or exchange fashion items. The good thing is that we can go shopping together quite safely though as we hardly have to vie for the same item. Heheh. So what about you? Is your BFF your best shopping buddy? Do you two have similar fashion sense or like sharing fashion items?

    Does BFF stands for best friend forever? I have been wondering about that.

    Yeah…it took me awhile to figure that too.

  4. sesame says:

    I and my BFF have a similar sense of fashion, we sometimes enjoy going to a second hand shop together, I don’t know many people who would like that. Unfortunately we don’t have the same clothes sizes so that we cannot exchange clothes, but we always give each other advices… and shopping together with someone who has the same taste in fashion is great!

    Ha, Sesame, I think your bag is MUCH nicer than your BFF’s! ? How much do they cost in Bangkok? Did you choose first so your BFF was left with “second choice”? ke ke… Or she really prefers the blue? That one looks a bit like the Cath Kidston designs, and altho they’re nice, those bags are soooo ubiquitous that I’m not tempted to buy them anymore.

    That’s great! It’s nice to have a BFF to discuss and you can trust when it comes to your concerns.

    Our bags were under S$40 each and it’s handmade. I think mine looks newer and hers more worn out because she was using the bag a lot! I can’t remember who chose first but we didn’t fight over the colors for sure. After I started using it, she also said mine looks nicer while I was eyeing hers afterwards. Haha… Speaking of Cath Kidston, I bought one from BKK too but then gave it to my BFF cos she said she’ll pass it to someone. I like the designs but hate the idea of seeing so many carry the same bags!

    Ya, my friend just bought me the same bag she got and said we can have best friend bags. We both think it is really cute.
    I think we have a similar sense , but different things suit us.

  12. sesame says:

    Yeah, it’s definitely a cute idea especially if others also notice. I think having similar accessories is fine but if wearing the same clothes, that’s something else.
