Though I am still denial about the coming of fall, I think it's best if I start to prepare for the weather by getting some basics for school. These two shirts were bought along with the bag below from Zara but from the boys' section. The trip started innocently enough–I was browsing the boy's section for something for my five year old cousin. My sister then dared me to try a shirt in a size for 13-14 year olds and to my surprise, the shirt did not only just fit but hilariously, the shirt fitted well. The shoulder seam (what is the term?) hits at the right place and the cuffs fall nicely a little below my wrists–the photo above suggests that the shirt strains at my chest but that is not the case, just bad posing in general. I don't consider myself petite (well as petite as someone who hovers around 5'7" and 5'8" and usually wears a size M in the women's section can be) but are today's 13-14 year old boys really that big? I will probably keep shopping in the children's section now and then as you can save a good amount of money because usually children's clothing are significantly cheaper and to sweeten the deal, in Vancouver you pay less tax for clothing for children under 14. Who knew I had never outgrown the children's section?
