The Doppelgänger

Cardigan, J.Crew. Shirt & shorts, Banana Republic. Scarf, Holt Renfrew. Belt, Joe Fresh. Sandals, Geox.

A couple of nights ago, I found myself scouring the potato chip racks of a 7-Eleven in my neighborhood. The cashier snickered a bit, so I assumed he was judging the quantity or quality of my purchases (fair enough). He then accused me of having gone to St. Joseph's, which I naturally assumed was a prep school with killer uniforms. He snickered again and claimed it was a NIGHTCLUB. I assured him I would never set foot in such a place (not anymore, anyway), but he didn't believe me because "It sure looked like you in that purple dress." I made my escape before he had a chance to say that I'd supposedly grinded with him or done body-shots off his bros, but this case of mistaken identity has had me thinking. If you happen to see this doppelgänger doing the Jersey Turnpike in a purple dress near you, please know that it is not I. Most nights, I am too busy brushing up on Camelot couture and watching Cami Secret infomercials, which leaves little time for purple-dress-clubbing.

Pretty sure you're living the life of a Cronenberg film, just with less violence and more Canadians.

Haha! Didn't he see what you were wearing? You look too polished preppy sheek to be mistaken for a grinding club goer. Geesh! I love the cute scarf in your hair by the way.

Um, that guy was a creepy schmuck. Seriously, I'm glad you hightailed it out of there, because he doesn't sound pleasant or safe to be around...

Nice to know a fellow Camelot enthusiast exists in blogland. Did you get a chance to watch the Starz series? If not you should...you know if you can fit it into your busy clubbing schedule.

Too funny! Of course your double is some skanky club ho!

I watch too many infomercials too. My boobs aren't big enough to warrent buying the Cami Secret.

Jo said...

You are far too stylish to be doing the dougie in some nastay club. But it's a funny story, nonetheless.

Hahaha I had to check out both Jersey Turnpike and Cami Secret and boy were they worth it! Well I wouldn't judge you even if you were jersey turnpiking it in a purple dress because you look anything but trashy in this gorgeous get-up :)

Cara said...

hahah, this is hilarious and since I just learned what a Jersey Turnpike is, I can hardly see you doing that. Another beautiful outift here, the green on green is great and I love those simple, pretty shoes. Officially following now.

Oh this is cracking me up. I would now over analyze every sideways glance.
