Are there any outlet malls near you Val? I scored big at an Under Armour outlet on vacation. Ended up buying men's mountain cold gear (they had tons of mens sz sm on a clearance rack) and got shirt & tights for $35. The same thing in women's at the outlet were double the men's price. I wore the tights under my breeches over the weekend (it was 18 degrees) and stayed plenty toasty.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
