My favorite Dress? Again?

One of my all-time favorite vintage dresses is a faux bois knit wool sheath from the 60s that I got at the Salvation Army thrift store about five years ago. 

Imagine my surprise when it showed up again the other day, in the exact same store.
  
Do I need another?
 Of course not.
 
So do I sell it? 
Of course not!

Why on God's good earth would I put an identical dress to my own out into circulation ---and thus invite the risk having someone else wear it on the same day I wear mine?

 Oh the horror! The humiliation!

I'm most certainly keeping them both!

The new one is a size larger than the old one, but you'd still stretch it out, Trix. Sorry.

I completely relate to this. Keep them both of course! Faux bois dress? Brilliant!

Maybe Lucy and Ethel will stop by, on different afternoons and unbeknownst to one another, and want a dress for a special occasion.
