A friend of mine sent me the link to this Sartorialist post featuring my doppelgänger. It even had me confused; I have a very similar jacket, and I recently ran around the Upper East Side. Thing is, I don’t wear jeans tucked in boots, and I don’t have tough-chic buckled boots.
It’s about time I see some evidence of lookalikes roaming around, because one in 10 people I meet claims to know someone who “looks exactly” like me, and she “sounds like you, too.” That sentiment was really hard to take when I was growing up since I’ve considered myself very opinionated and specific – how can anyone duplicate that? And what for? But I’ve come to realize that I’m also a thin, pale blond, and we do all look alike.
