Unless, of course, they do. Lately I've been seeing all kinds of interesting doubles I thought I'd share.
Yup. That would be Missa wearing the very same Gunne Sax dress I have, in a slightly different pattern. But that's not the most shocking thing: As you may have guessed before, she's my long lost, tall, blond twin! I know, it's pretty obvious, looking at these pics. Hi sis!
Oh and speaking of Gunne Sax, remember this one? I wore this dress to the Bonnie Prince Billie concert I went two years ago, and am tempted to make it a tradition, by wearing it again tomorrow.
I've always though this was either an imitation, or made from a Gunnies pattern, by a rather expert seamstress, judging from the amount of detail on it.
This in spite the faint outline of a tag in the neck. The bases of my speculation was that it lacked some typical Gunne features, like pockets, looked a little hand-made and was quite long, before I chopped some of the hem off. Having seen some early Black Label Gunnies, though, made me wonder. Well wonder no more:
This Black Label Gunne (recently sold on Ebay) featured the same exact fabric. Sweet.
Speaking of memorable frocks, how about this one:
Wait! That's not me in my amazing Portland cave painting horse dress...What the...
It's actually for sale in my new favorite online vintage store Raggedy Threads, which rocks all kinds of good things just in my taste and affordable prises. Made from the same fabric, though both are probably home made. Go get it! I want a horse dress twin too!
Finding that someone else is wearing your unique vintage dress, is an entirely different feeling from that of seeing your H&M frock on another girl. It's more like a secret handshake, a sign that you're both part of a super sweet society of ladies with good taste and fun-loving hearts.
Or long lost twins. Obviously.
