Shopping for golf wear in smaller sizes!
Sunday, May 15, 2011
Today was Ladies day at Golftown, where they close the store after hours and only Ladies can shop with special prizes and discounts.
Of course I went. I need all new golf apparal. I bought a golf skirt in April and a couple shirts when in Asia, but nothing else fits (too big!!), so I had a great excuse.
While waiting for the store to close and then open, I went to Winners (like Marshalls) as I am stil searching for the elusive black capri pants. No luck, but I did find a sexy Kenneth Cole black skirt ($38), and 2 skirts size 12 ($19 &$24). I actually looked in the mirror and thought wow I look great in these. I took a moment to really look at myself and feel proud of what I have accomplished.
I cleaned out my closets "finally" as I hadn't done that last July 2010 when I left for China for 10 months as I was too afraid I wouldn't be able to keep it up. Not only did I keep it up , I lost 20 more pounds over there. Even though I shopped and had clothes custom made in China, still need a wardrobe.
So back to me in the dressing room. I loved the way they looked and my legs looked great. Sorry I didn't take a picture and no full length mirrors at home.
Next over to Golftown now. I used to buy whatever was in size 18 or usually 20 and was just happy to find any golf wear in plus sizes. Now I had such variety and choice. I figured out I like Nike, Cutter & Buck and Adidas the best. So many items on the discount rack for $20 each in size 12 or Large, I tried lots on. I could choose what I like and looked good instead of whatever fit. I found 1 shirt, 1 skirt and 2 sweaters, then some shoes. Yes my shoe size has changed too. Bummer as I still have 1 new and 2 almost new golf shoes from last couple years. I thought shoes were an investment, which they are, but never thought I would have to downsize. But in golf the last thing you want is to have loose fitting shoes. So on sale for $50 Footjoy (dryjoys).
A very good day for me, maybe not for my bank account, but it's a small price to pay for looking good and feeling good......having to buy new clothes, and GOLFwear! Too bad the clubs still fit!
