Namaste Cover Up = Bathrobe?

Namaste Cover Up
I'm not loving the new Namaste Cover Up, especially in this color. As someone mentioned on facebook, it looks like a bathrobe. Another criticism I agree with is that the sleeves are too short. I'm not a huge fan of the 3/4 sleeve - I like having the option of pushing up my sleeves.

Flashbaback Sweatsuit = yuk
I'm so not a fan of the head to toe sweatsuit look unless I'm house bound and no one will see me in it.

Vita Crop, Latin Dance Pants - in Solid Black Luon?

It looks like the Latin Dance pants come in solid black luon. I think, or is this denim? It sure looks like regular black luon to me. This makes them so much better than the flashy denim luon paired with hideous contrast stitching. I think the denim luons are pretty rock-star looking by themselves so why Lululemon added orange stitching to them is beyond. However, the solid black luon pants are a huge improvement.

Vita Crop
So, are these another pair of cotton crops that are going to go immediately to markdown? Someone commented earlier even the new Flashback crops are on markdown for $39 at her store. I'm not a fan of roll down waistbands, especially not in this relatively thick cotton fabric. They always work their way up on me and then my tummy gets hot. I have to say the drawing of the backside of these crops doesn't look very flattering. I'll have to see if I can find some real life photos.
