My general rule is that if I can’t try something on (or easy returns)…don’t buy it. I’m sure every lady out there gets it, each company has their own sizing and it’s hard to buy things online and make it work. So while I’m spending less and less time in the saddle I’ve been trying to resist buying anything.
After all, I can’t fit into my regular clothes, why should I take the risk?
Well. It was cold, I was bored, there wasn’t any body around to stop me. So I went shopping! I’m calling it my motivation for getting through these next couple of riding free months! And I think that I may do a rendition (round 2?) of my tailored sportsman challenge…so I needed new tailored sportsmans for that right?
Well perfect, because these sort of ended up in my cart one night (thanks to $900Facebook Pony for the share). Netequestrian.com was clearing everything out, and I snagged these tan professional knee patch for $57.49, regularly $229. Oh and why not throw in this coolmax TS show shirt? Took an educated guess on shirt size (pending baby) and for $22 it was worth it.
Then honestly I finally found a deal good enough to try gamble on sizing for Goode brand products. My trainer is a big fan, and I like the looks of them. I snagged two shirts, one long sleeved, one short, for a total of $25 (usually $60 and $50 respectively) and then the Goode denium knee patch for $39. Usually those suckers are $160 full price, and I was never willing to try them at that point.
Everything is so pretty – but I’m nervous about the weight of the Goode shirts. I don’t think I’ll be able to wear even the short sleeve in the worst of summer because it seems heavy. Trying to reserve judgement for now, but that was my only concern upon opening the package.
And of course, I did happen upon this fabulous Black Friday deal from Ellany Equestrian and couldn’t resist. Hello beautiful!
I won’t dare ruin the belt by trying to make it fit at the moment, but it’s all laid out for me to use ASAP. A big shout out to Ellany Equestrian who is a one-woman show! Her products arrived fast, beautiful and I loved the personal touch.
Anyone else using these cold snaps or being out of the saddle to stock up on pretty new things?
