There is also a new crop style. It is a close fitting crop like Wunder Unders with three (two?) diagonal bands of colors all the way around the leg opening. The leg opening is also has a triangle with rounded edges cut out of it. I think she called it the Resolution Crop or something like that. It definitely began with an R and the one on the mannequin had the new purple colors. They were muted purples (not neony) and I think I am going to like them at lot. As soon as I find a photo I will post it.
|In Stride Jacket in Coal/Coal Denim|
I tried on the new In Stride Jacket. I had to try on the next size down since they didn't have my size and like the educators mentioned it is loose fitting through the shoulders and arms. The Coal In Stride is mostly plain Coal Luon with Denim Luon only at the collar, cuffs, Lulu symbol on the chest, and band at the bottom so the jacket is mostly plain Coal luon. Although the jacket didn't use the blingy white zipper - yay - I'm kind of used to the big toothed zipper used on my Defines, Gather Together, and Wear With All and think the smaller zipper on the In Stride is kind of cheap looking and doesn't do anything for this jacket. A big toothed zipper would give this jacket some personality. Overall, I like the fit and look of the jacket but the Coal/Coal Denim one is kind of dull looking and I would rather get this in a bright color or two-tone color. Oh yeah, the price is $108.

I just got an Australian product alert that has a photo of a Black Pique In Stride Jacket - now we're talking! There is also a Flush (a color similar to Fruity Tootie from what I can tell)/Coal Strata Stripe
|Black Pique In Stride Jacket - Nice!|
The sale rack at the Newport Store is getting picked over but things are now getting marked down two and three times. I ended up getting a pair of black Still Shorts for $29. I had thought about them last week when they were $39 so I'm glad I waited. I know they had a few pairs left in 12 and I saw at least one pair in a size 6. I live in these shorts in the summer. I also had my hands on a plum Heart tank which was marked down for $34 and nearly bought it but I didn't feel the same rip-off-the-tag lust for it that I felt for the Wish version so I decided to put it back on the rack and wait for the Ikat tanks to come out. Quite a few of the tanks were marked down to $34. I know the Ikat stuff is here so I may go back tomorrow to see what has been put out. The girl wasn't sure what they had in the back and only had time to go through a couple of boxes for me.
