I tried on the Black Pique In Stride and the Gray Stride today. I ordered the black pique In Stride yesterday from the website but it is not here yet. I have decided I am just not a Stride/In Stride Jacket person. They are super nice jackets but I find the fit boxy and the overall design too plain for my taste. The length also hits me right at the widest part of my hips. However, I do love the feel of pique and definitely would love a jacket/top in this fabric but I just can't pull the trigger on getting a Stride/In Stride. It's weird because I love my Gather Together Jacket which is kind of a cousin to the Stride/In Stride. I know I am of out of step with lots and lots of people on this because the Stride is super popular but my first love is the Define Jacket. That is actually what I ended up getting today - the Ikat Define.

Markdown Report - The Irvine store really didn't have a markdown rack and not much was marked down except some Ta Ta Tamers at $44 (I think). The Newport Store had a healthy markdown rack again and had lots of gym bags on sale. I saw black Fast in Flight bags marked down to $69 (I think all the FiF are being marked down). The Hottie Hot gym bag/purses were $49 and the Gym Essentials toiletry kits were $39. The toiletries kit has to be at least $10 cheaper for me to get it. Newport also had it's remaining Black Roses Power Ys at $39 and the Static Wish 50 Rep bras at $34. I'm hoping some of these markdowns make it on line because last year around the middle of January there was a big Loot upload.
Upcoming Things A woman on Facebook spotted the following new things at her gym. I don't know what country she is from. The strategic partner gyms/studios have separate buyers than the stores and website so that is why they are out of step with them.
