Shopping the Boys Department

Has anyone ever tried shopping the Boys department? I used to buy Ralph Lauren Boys' polos in college because they were a lot less expensive than women's but I eventually decided they didn't fit right. Now, I always see people on blogs wearing J.Crew Boys gingham shirts so I finally decided to give it a another try. I've ordered a few things... I'll let you know how they are. If they work out, they're totally a bargain over shopping the women's department! Plus, they're such classic pieces!


  1. That vest is very cute! I might just have to look into the boys dept!

  2. I have to admit I've never considered looking at the boys' department for shirts, but after this post I might need to try it! I have a long torso though, so I'm curious as to whether or not the shirts would be long enough...only one way to find out! Definitely keep us posted :)

  3. Yes, I use to shop in the boys dept all of the time, for basic items! Such an easy way to save money!

    P.S. I'm hosting a monogrammed ring giveaway, so make sure you stop by and check it out!

  4. My favorite pieces have come from the boy's sections and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I don't think it's a big deal considering they're typically not seen since I usually layer them. No harm in saving a few bucks!
