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!
