New Twisted Headband + Miscellaneous

New Twisted Headband - Circle Mesh & Luon
One of the Canadian Facebook sites had photos of a new headband - the Twisted headband. One side is made of circle mesh and the other luon, both with the logo. I am a headband junkie, I think I have nearly 25 of them. My favorite is the Mesh headband, followed by the Dance headband. The new Twisted headband looks a lot like the Mesh. I hope it is tapered in the back like the Mesh. It's interesting that they put the logo on both sides. I know the Mesh is supposed to be reversible but I never reverse it to the mesh side even when the pattern matches my top. I'll have to keep an eye for this headband in the stores.

Splatter Stripe print
I went to one of my local stores yesterday to see if anything interesting showed up. I was dissapointed and left without buying anything, which is rare for me. I guess I'll have to wait for more of the spring line to show up. I am really looking forward to seeing tanks in the Splatter Stripe print.

I saw the new Faded Zap Cool Racerback. I didn't like it in person as much as I thought I would. I also saw the Senorita Pink embossed manifesto Cool Racerback. The embossing is very subtle, the light has to hit it just right to see it. I liked it a lot but I already have a Senorita Pink Scoop Neck Tank and didn't feel like another top in that color. I saw the Sidewalk Cool Racerback which is a light gray. I liked the color but I wouldn't mind seeing it in another tank with some accent colors to liven it up. I also saw a Swift tank in the new Lagoon color. It looked a lot like last year's Caribe but since I wasn't wearing any Caribe I couldn't tell how it matched up. I'm not a Swift Tank fan but I'd be interested in seeing other tanks in the color. I saw a new color in the Still pant, I think it is heathered coal but I'm not sure Static Dark Classic Sport Gray. The material is very similar to the Static Charcoal (STCH) Stills I bought a month or so ago - shiny, lightweight, silky feeling but a lighter gray version of it.  It looks like this:

I think the new silky luons are great in the looser fitting Still pants. However, they are thinner than regular weight luon and don't have nearly as much stretch. You can do the experiment yourself - try stretching a pair of regular black luon pants and then the Static Charcoal ones. The regular luon will stretch nearly twice as far in all directions. I tried on a pair of Relaxed Fit crops in Static Charcoal and did not like how they felt at all. I also saw the new Messenger bag. It's a nice size, big but not huge. It's very cute and has tons of pockets. I don't think it would make a great gym bag for me because I carry too much stuff but it looks like a nice all around bag. I hope some newer stuff gets uploaded this week or arrives in the stores. I'm kind of bored with what's available right now.

PS - Oh yeah, there is a new space dye - Lagoon Space Dye. It's actually one of the prettier space dyes I've seen - lagoon with some faded zap and others I can't remember. However, I am just not a space dye fan but I might have to check it out again.
