For a long time Jo and I fought our twin-like ways. We’d text before showing up to work to make sure we weren’t accidentally matching, and blush when we inevitably arrived in the same place in almost identical clothing anyway. We tried to keep our hair different shades at all times, and put a lot of energy into finding looks that would differentiate us.
But still, the questions remained the same: “omg, are you sisters?”, “Are you TWINS?” and these days we’ve decided we may as well just get crazy matchy matchy. That’s right, we’re purposely twinning all the time, and honestly, it’s pretty darn fun.
Hayley Elsaesser is one of our favourite local designers, and every year we flock to her fashion week show like a couple of moths to a big colourful flame. This year she invited us to visit her shop for some new items to sport at fashion week (dream come true!) and though we attempted to each pick a totally different outfit, we walked out looking like twins in identical two piece ensembles once again.
The perks? We almost always have the same item in multiple prints/colours, and we can pretend to be one another à la parent trap in like, 80% of situations…
P.S. Happy first day of summer!!!
