Yesterday I was running a few errands, and went to a nearby mall to buy some computer ink. Suddenly I noticed a store selling a GORGEOUS sweatshirt jacket, with high collar and puffy feminine sleeves.
[Explanation aside:] Sizes here in Israel come in 4 variations:
1) American sizing on stuff from there
2) European-style sizing (32-34-40--42--etc)
3) Small, M- L-XL etc
4) a simplified sizing of 1-2-3-4-5. Size 4 is about a size 46-48. Most stores only carry to size 4, and many things are only up through size 3 . ( I was thrilled a year and a half ago when I finally fit into a size 4, that meant that many more clothes/stores were available to me..)
NSV: I went into the store, but they had the sweatshirt jacket only in sizes 1-2-3. So I tried a size three. It was a BIT tight... I am still basically a size 4... but I WAS able to buy it. Also last week I went into a store that has VERY classy stuff, and was able to get something VERY nice. I used to only WISH that I could buy there....... (Still won't do it often, they ARE expensive... but this was end of season sale stuff.
BTW here are my blogs from a year ago on end-of-season sales (the second one was already here on SPARK).:
