    Default would you be annoyed...

    I finally bought myself a maxi dress! FINALLY.. I'm so fussy and rarely like wearing skirts or dresses of any sort.. and my freaking mother in law asks me where I get it from, and GOES AND BUYS THE EXACT SAME ONE!!!!!!! Same colour and all. It has put me off even looking at it, let alone wearing it. I have worn it twice so it's not like I can return it. Worse yet, is she is 68! I hardly feel 'flattered'' she has gone and bought the same blooming dress.

    Sigh. feel like throwing my dress in the bloody bin.

    Yeah that would get right up my nose. If I liked my mother in law maybe not but as it stands...I probably wouldn't want to wear the dress either.

    I know it seems silly but I do totally get where you're coming from.

    You could always accessorise to make it different. I personally wouldn't care but if it irks you that much either don't wear it or stylise so it's different.

    I would be flattered. She obviously thought you looked wonderful in it and wanted to look wonderful too.

    I'd be really annoyed too! I'd take it to mean my taste is that of a 68 year old.

    It was ridiculous for her to go and buy it - seriously was it necessary!?

    However I would still wear the dress, just not when you are around her. As a PP said, you could always accessorise it and I'm sure your shoes, jewelery and hair are much more stylish than your MIL and I'm sure you look hot in it and she will just look dowdy!
