Manicured or could you care less what your yard looks like?

What kind of dresser are you - classy, trendy, bold or combination/no one particular style?

Cook in/grill out or go out on a scorching hot day?

Not long ago with some friends and whenever I shop with this group of friends, a few times a year as one of them can wear some clothes in that section and we don't exclude the friend (or make fun of her) because she shops at times in the kids department.  I funny that way.

I guess it depends on ones style, but I would think that a girls department would be more trendy than a misses department, but that is just my experiences.

I guess, sav's not embarassed about her public records and I would guess that the other one is quite embarassing.   But otherwise, they are both public records and the double standard looks pretty silly yet again.

If I was Sav and had a master's degree and in a managerial postion, I WOULD be embarassed

Sometimes they can be shorter in rise and length which is why petite women find sucess in that department.   I would think anyone who knows clothing and shops for their kids (if they have kids) would know that they can often find sizes in the kids department.  It's not exactly new news or anything, well for those who know clothing and sizes....if they don't, then I guess they would just make fun of the situation as it's been done here.

When was the last time you shopped in the girl's section for clothes? They are cut smaller, NO DOUBT. How often are you even in the girl's section since you have boys?
