Every once in a while when I’m at Target (which is about the only place I go anymore, it seems) I’ll be walking by the little girl’s clothes and think that’s cute!. And sometimes, a cute top will come in a size XL (14-16). And sometimes, that XL girl’s item will be on the clearance rack, like the trench coat I got a couple of years ago.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with shopping in the little girl’s section for clothes. They are almost always cheaper. While there’s no way I’ll ever fit in an XXL pair of girl’s pants, the tops are sometimes doable. Like this top – with rick rack on the bodice and some lace around the hem. Why do I like this little girl style? I mean, really, I’m getting too old for this, right?
I had to un-criss-cross the straps in the back, but that was it. Like I said, there doesn’t seem to be anything actually wrong with me walking around in the girl’s section. But this last time I found myself nervously looking around making sure no one I knew saw me slip into the dressing room.
