Imagine our surprise when three Essence staffers arrived to work today wearing the same exact dress!

Executive assistant Michelle Torres-Monroe pulled her two-year-old H&M dress out of her closet this morning as the perfect solution to beat the Big City heat.

“It was going to be 82 degrees today and I thought why not wear a comfortable, flowy dress?” said Michelle.

Executive editorial assistant Gwen Epps threw on her army green H&M frock to shake up her summer look. “It’s a comfortable dress and I hadn’t worn it yet this summer,” said Gwen.

The trio got word of their look-alikes shortly after arriving in the office. “Someone asked me ‘Why are you wearing Michelle’s dress?'” said Tanya Gunther, ESSENCE Music Festival coordinator. “So I went over to Michelle’s desk and there it was!”

The fashion triplets all agree that this uncanny coincidence is definitely one for the record books!

“Great minds think alike!” said Michelle.
