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

    Yay, for buying a print twice. Especially one as fabulous as this! I LOVE your pants and this dress is equally fantastic! xo

    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.

      thanks for noticing the subtle pattern mixing Jamie… good eye!;) xxx

    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)

      Thanks Victoria, i have to say i love orange and green, it was like they were made for each other!heehee! hope you're now fast asleep i bet its middle of the night for you right now xxx

    • June 20, 2014 / 9:17 am

    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. 🙂

    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)

    I love the orange against the green. Just love being inspired by different color combinations. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

    Awesome print!!! And with those shoes, wow, this is such a cool, chic look 🙂

    Holy moly! Peacocks! I've found the shoes of my dream for £14 and now I'm trying to resist the matching bag! Who'd have thought? xx

  13. June 20, 2014 / 4:46 pm

    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!

  14. June 20, 2014 / 6:20 pm

    I love it all. I really love the colour of the bag. xx

  15. June 20, 2014 / 8:25 pm

    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!)

  16. June 20, 2014 / 11:39 pm

    So I was all about this pretty dress and then I saw your shoes and got totally distracted, love them!

  17. June 21, 2014 / 12:39 pm

    I'm loving the green print of this dress and like you say if you love it why not?!

    X x

    Oh Rachel – if it ain't broke indeed!! Love the fresh green color on you and that pop of orange is magic. Love this look!

  19. June 22, 2014 / 2:34 am

    Yes i have bought something twice-jeans! ha, ha. But i totally understand because once you fnd something you love, then you never want to get rid of it! Gorgeous photos as always 🙂

    stop by,

  20. June 22, 2014 / 11:02 pm

    Love this!! The pattern is great… I probably would have bought in both too!! Thanks again for being such a great co-host!

  21. June 23, 2014 / 11:14 am

    Love the pattern of your dress! So great that you found it in both pieces!


  22. June 23, 2014 / 8:26 pm

    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
