Buying the same print twice (&Passion 4 fashion Linkup)

Have you ever really really loved a style or print that you bought it twice? Well thats what happened to me this week. Remember my totally awesome green trousers? Well, it turns out they made a dress version of these also. The dress then went on mega sale and there it was staring at me in my size,so I walked away with it for a mere few quid and i'm so pleased i did, its been the perfect companion to this warm weather we've been having. Comfy and cool and the colour packs a punch. All that for less than a tenner! As you can see from my previous post i went with practically the exact same colour scheme with the dress as i did the trousers.. Apparently my originality doesn't even stop at buying the same print twice, i will also dress it up the exact same way and present it to you all again to see.
No shame here ;)
If it ain't broke as they saying goes..






 Dress: F&F Sale
(Quick fact, these look identical to the Zara sell outs but they are in fact Peacocks! The store i had written off back last year has had a major shake up and they now sell awesome shoes like these!! I shall be back Peacocks!)
Bag: Fossil c/o McArthur Glen
Cuff: Yosa
Rayban Aviators: c/oSunglasses Shop
 So tell me, have you ever bought something twice?

  3. This dress just looks so super cool! I don't blame you for buying the same print twice at all. It's so summery and such a gorgeous shade of green. I love the subtle print mixing going on with the shoes you wore with it too. So cute.

  4. I love all the colors in this outfit- I never think to wear orange with green but I love both of those colors equally. I don't blame you for buying the same print twice- it's super pretty! I don't think I've bought the same print in different items but I have bottom the same items in different prints (whoa, I had to stop and think about that for a moment- made my brain a little fuzzy since it's nearly 1am, haha)

  9. Love the print of that dress and the color. I just recently bought something for the second time. It was just the perfect piece of fabric in green so when I saw it in red, I had to have it also. :-)

  10. I'm forever buying two pairs of the same shoe, just in different colors - - - cuz they are both cool. I love this dress on you. I bought one similar at "my" thrift shop but it is solid and tan and not printed but it IS similar. lol Thanks for this fun "passionate" blog hop and for being at my "item" one, too. (HUG)

  17. Those shoes are just amazing!! I love when you get 2 pairs in a different color. I tend to do that too plus it's great if the other pairs rip or something you have a back up one ! Lovely outfit by the way!

  19. I Rachel. I usually shop at either Sainsbury's or Asda. I had no idea F&F did such gorgeous clothes. I remember your trousers, you suit strong bright colours! (Decided to shop at Tesco next time!)

  31. I think this dress is fabulous on you! I love the print, and think it works well with the contrast sleeve. I very nearly bought a F&F dress when I already have the skirt, just because I loved the print so much, but I was with the OH and he looked at me as though I was crazy...

    Looks great with the orange and those sandals x
