I have a little fashion secret. And I realize it won’t be a secret for everyone, but maybe you too can benefit from my cheapskate ways. Ready?
Clothes bought in the kid’s department are way cheaper than clothes for adults.
Now I realize my 5’2”, semi-petite self can get away with such declarations, but with kid’s clothes running bigger in general (I get a kid’s XXL) and kid’s plus sized departments, it might work. I discovered this while shopping for Lily over the summer and am now hooked. Let me show you a few gems I recently bought and a few I have my eye on.
1. Puffer Vest
2. Slouchy Tee
Okay so I can’t find an adult comparison (possibly because it is a kid’s shirt with a dog on the front…..), but I ridiculously love this shirt. I actually got one with an owl on it for Lily too. It is perfect over skinny jeans or leggings. Plus the dog. Seriously.
3. Animal Sweater
4. Monogram Shirt
Okay so the kid one is a t-shirt and the women’s one is a sweater so the price comparison isn’t really far. But the kid’s one has GLITTER and I am loving these. And they have a J so duh. Although this ampersand one is really awesome too.
I had been looking for something exactly like this all fall, but hadn’t found anything that worked. I love that this moto jacket is fleece and casual, more like a blazer. Their offerings for women are either shearling or faux leather and are much more geared towards outerwear. This is my most favorite “kid’s store” score ever.
So what do you think? Would you shop the kid’s department?
