Michelle Obama in Lululemon, Again!

Michelle Obama in New Orleans participating in a local sports day to promote the fight against childhood obesity. She is wearing a Run: Revitalize Short Sleeve top. I suspect the bottoms are lulu, too, but couldn't get a view with a logo. This isn't the first time she's worn Lululemon in a public appearance. How come the President doesn't wear Lululemon, too? (Thanks, Momof5, for the tip)

Swell Jacket - Not So Swell in Real Life

The Swell Jacket looked pretty cute from the product alert artist rendering image:

But in real life, it's not nearly as cute. It looks like some ill-fitting Walmart offering:

I'm thinking this jacket looks a bit small. I'd like to see this girl in the next size up.

Inspire Pullover Photos - True Color Representation

The following photos aren't that great in terms of how the Inspire Pullover looks on various body types but they are taken outdoors in flat light so you get a good representation of the true color. These are of the Static Black and Static Senorita Pink.  If the pullovers show up on the web tomorrow morning you'll be armed with some accurate information. (Click on the photos to enlarge)

Ok, I am loving the Senorita ear warmer and other running accessories.

Effortless Pant - Like!

I am liking the look of the Effortless Pant a lot. I wish it had an embroidered logo but the pants look really cute on this girl so of course they will look equally cute on me.  ;-)  I must try these on.

Mesh Cool Racerback in Real Life

The mesh cool racerback is surprisingly more opaque than I thought it would be. However, I bet she is wearing a senorita-colored bra underneath it because the hang tag shows up very obviously. I would assume a white bra would look very similar. (Click on the photo to see an enlarged version)

Product Alerts: Run Cross Train Crops, Personal Best Singlet, Inspire Crops

Run: Cross Train Crop
  • Knee length, mid-rise crop designed to reduce bounce while running
  • Power luxtreme™ feels silky smooth, and is light weight with high LYCRA® content, and inherent wicking
  • Flat seams moved forward out of the inseam to reduce chafing
  • Continuous drawcord that won't come out in the wash
  • Secure pocket on back waistband & 2 gel pockets on the front
  • Circle mesh paneling in high sweat areas for ventilation

     I do not care for the back of the Personal Best Singlet - is it twisted? I would like the top a lot more if it were solid colored rather than having the classic sport gray edging. I'd even prefer it edged in coal. It would look really nice edged in power purple.
    • A light weight singlet for running or the gym, just layer over any bra
    • Made of silverescent™ circle mesh; an anti-stink, wicking mesh for weightless function
    • Knitted with silverescent™ for anti-stink and anti-static properties

      The Inspire crops are supposed to be calf-length but if you don't have long legs they can look like this on you:

      Upload Thursday Wishes?

      With the Labor Day Holiday I forgot tomorrow is Thursday. What are you hoping will show up? I am kind of hoping for the Mesh CRBs. Other than that, I can't really think of anything.

      Lululemon appears at about the 4 second mark. (Thanks for the link, Sun!)

      Pics - Senorita Inspire, Modern Longsleeve, Swell Jacket

      Hmm, from this photo the Swell Jacket looks a bit too poofy and a tad short for my taste. I'll have to try it on.

      I'm still liking the Senorita Inspire the best. It's probably because the color-blocked luxtreme/mesh areas and stripes don't stand out nearly as much as they do in the other colors.

      Why did they add the gray panels down the sides? This would have been a very cute shirt without that.
