Honestly I wish I could say that on a whim I decided to visit the men’s section and happened across this shirt or even that in movie-like fashion I threw on my husband’s shirt and it magically fit like a dream. But neither of those are true. This purchase was a complete accident.
While at the J.Crew Warehouse sale, I saw a peak of blue gingham sticking out of a box and went for it. Although labeled a small, it appeared like it might fit. Mislabeling is not super-uncommon at a sample sale.
I threw it on over my shirt, and lo and behold we were a match made in heaven.
It wasn’t until later when my husband pointed out that men’s and women’s shirts buttoned on opposite sides that I finally figured out the truth, but I’m not complaining about my menswear turned women’s wear purchase.
I might even peruse the men’s section the next time I go shopping. Probably not, but hey, you never know.
Have you ever purchased men’s clothing for your own closet?
