Two Girls One Dress

City Chic Longline Shirt tunic $79.95 AUD (currently sold out online)
While shopping with Phebe at the City Chic Melbourne flagship store on Bourke Street we both fell in love with the above neon pink shirt dress. Already having very similar style (as documented in these two posts) I thought it could be fun to take it that step further and actually see how we would both actually style this fun piece.

My turn first. I decided to wear the dress to the Vogue show at LMFF. Working from a reduced travelling wardrobe where I only packed one jacket not knowing that it would turn out to be quite chilly in Melbourne I knew I had to work my red blazer into the look somehow. So I decided to team all my red pieces together and colour block my look based on red and pink with a hint of black and silver.

I added my silver collar clips to the ends of the collar for instant wow factor (I found mine on ebay) and wore a designer friends statement necklace in red and silver. To combat the sheer issue I wore a black slip from another City Chic dress I already own.

My nails were painted in matching neon pink and I wore belted the dress with my awesome red tartan belt to define my waist.

Fashion week is the perfect time for statement pieces, so I wore my funny "tumblr" bag with its cute pink cat which got a lot of people talking. I also wore my favourite flats as heels are sadly still a no go for me after my knee injury. 

Phebe's turn. Phebe wore the dress as a vest over a casual shopping day outfit of an awesome vintage wolf t-shirt and leggings. The shirt dress is so versatile, there are just so many ways you can wear it be it as a dress, open, as a vest, belted etc...

The shirt dress looks awesome as a vest.

The sheer fabric blowing in the wind.

Phebe wore matching pink lipstick and some awesome Ray Ban sunnies with her signature up-do.

Now we just have to make sure not to turn up at the same event in the same outfit, because as every woman knows there is nothing worse (well at least according to Hollywood movies). 

Have you ever had the same dress/top/skirt as a friend? How did that work out? Did you have to let each other know in advance when each other was wearing it? Let me know in the comments below.
