Fore-tunately, no one was hurt!

plus size casual vintage fashion

Last Thursday, for our weekly date night, Pj took me to play mini golf for the second time in my entire life. The sun was shining, the day was gorgeous and the company was very entertaining, as always. We had so much fun, even though I'm a pretty lousy player! This past summer, we visited my Aunt and Uncle in Denver, Colorado where my Uncle Jeremy's golf obsession rubbed off on Pj who hated golf until we got to Denver! I've never seen a beginner drive a ball like my husband! He's like Happy Gilmore, minus the temper!
So, Pj has learned quite a bit about golf since last summer and was able to give me a few lessons. It didn't keep me from having to hit the ball at least 6 times to get it in the hole, though!

The night before I slept in pin curls, which turned out to be the best pin curls I've done so far! They were more like soft curls and waves than my usual frizzy clown hair. This is my new skirt, just picked up on Tuesday from my local Salvation Army thrift store. I really do think that the messier and grungy thrift stores tend to have the best stuff! I also found a cute white cropped sweater and 2 vintage dresses for just a few bucks! A word about vintage shopping- make sure that all zippers are in good working order! Not only should they zip up all the way, but they should also stay zipped up! I needed a brown pencil skirt and when I found this one with such a perfect length and fit, I couldn't say no. It wasn't until Pj got home from work that I noticed that the back zipper doesn't like to stay zipped! Luckily, I can replace the zipper with no problem but do check for things like that to avoid any "wardrobe malfunctions"!

  6. Is mini golf a bit like crazy golf over here?
    You look lovely, and isn't it great when your hair behaves itself! x

  7. Wonderful! I love your skirt. Another thing that might work with the zippers is to put a hook and eye at the top.

  8. Thank you, everyone! Not sure about "crazy golf" I suppose its similar. As to the hook and eye, this particular skirt already has one but that zipper just slides right down, isn't that weird?!

    And thank you for your comments on my discussion post. If you're looking to get into more modern rockabilly I have a weekly (usually haha) feature of my favorite current bands.

  11. You are the chicest mini golfer I've ever seen! Andy and I used to play some mini golf when we first met. I'm terrible at it, too, but you've put me in the mood to play again.

  12. I am starting to get interested in golf after years of making fun of it (I'm from Virginia where golf = stuffy old white guys dressed like pimps eating club sandwiches and developing alcoholism so...) I re-read the Great Gatsby and the character of Jordan Baker made me interested in early 20th century women's sports, like golf. The clothes were pretty groovy.
    Trick about zippers: when you buy vintage from a thrift shop/yard sale etc, before you wear garment, be sure to snip up any little threads near the zipper. Can help avert serious disasters.
