Is imitation truly the best form of flattery?April 6, 2008
I will just go ahead and rant on this little thing that has been on my mind for quite a long while now. I just need to ask all of you fashionable beings out there if imitation is the best form of flattery. Some might agree with the statement, others might not. I, for one, highly disagree.
I have this acquaintance I know whom I met a little while back. After a while, friends of mine started noticing that this person, let’s call this person A, started to become more like.. Me. Everything that I did, A did. Point in view, my lifestyle habits (not really when it comes to Fashion – I will just go ahead and declare that I’m a million more times more fashionable than this fashion catastrophe.), the things I do, the style of clothes I wear and stuff.
It annoys the hell out of me when it seems like my identity has been stolen/robbed.. It’s very much like Katie Holmes “copying” Victoria Beckham in terms of style and haircuts. Okay. I will just say that I whatever A does, I do it so much better – who the hell wears flip flops to the city? – in terms of everything.
A friend did exclaim recently: ” OMG that’s you! only looking less hot and in need of major plastic surgery, new clothes, new hair and a new character!”. Shocked, I was not. Annoyed, very much.
So, have any of you felt this way before? Have any of you been imitated to the point of annoyance?
