Dolly: The cloned sheep

Strange thing going on at work this Fall: copyism. Everyone is wearing pretty much the same thing and its distressing to see, this sheep effect. "Where did you get that?" is no longer just a random question but a challenge: Tell me so that I can get it too. Target seems to be the catalyst, everyone shops there, it's turning into a badge of honor. Colored tights. "Ooooh I want some, where did you get those? I'm gonna go to Target and get some too!" Alice Temperley top. "Me too, me too! I'm going at lunchtime to cop that!" (Okay, so these girls don't say "cop that" but you get the idea.) And I love me some Target, but the time has come to bid it adios for a minute until the frenzy dies down. I'm afraid I am going to have to turn into one of the ladies who says she "forgot" where she got something. Or say I got it somewhere random like Tibet or Australia.

Make it yours ladies, make it yours.

I have a friend who used to do this--she'd admire something I had (even from a small boutique) and then go out and get the exact same thing! It was very strange and annoying.

Luckily, I don't shop at Target.

I completely understand. I had a co-worker ask me about a pair of my shoes. Not thinking I kindly gave her the store where I bought them. Well, needless to say the next week she was rocking the same shoes! I hate that and didn't wear them to work again!
