Friday Fashion - Wearing kids clothes.. yourself!

Sometimes, being small has it's advantage.  I'm not quite 5'2 and I'm a size 8-10 so lots of clothes swamp me.  Especially trousers.. It's not so bad these days, lots of shops have cottoned on to the fact we're not all one size and offer many more trouser lengths, but many years ago I used to buy my trousers in the teen sections of shops.  It has it's advantages - children's clothes are usually a bit cheaper!

These days, trousers in the women's section are usually fine for me if I can get a short length.. Also, fashion doesn't frown at turn ups at the moment!! However, I do still sometimes peruse the teen section and come up trumps.  Especially in sales!!

I have several dresses which are "children's" but this is my favourite one.  I got it in a New Look sale a couple of years ago.  I saw it poking out of the sale rail and fell in love with the print.  I looked at the label and saw it said "age 12".  I wondered if I could fit into it as I loved the print so much (flags and sales) so took it to the changing room.  It fitted fine!  I snapped it up for £4.  Bargain.  I wear it all the time, all seasons.  It always makes me smile and hubby loves it too!
