oh. My. GOD. That backpack box is hideous.
OT - but LLA I think you might be able to help me :) Just curious, I just bought a used PowerDance tank off an exchange. I know you have some so I was wondering if you would know...At the bottom, I know it has a drawcord, but is the drawcord fairly long? Like if it was untightened the tank would hang loosely rather than being elastic/bubbled? Is is a continuous drawcord or does it have a tightener? The one I received I'm a little skeptical about...it has obviously bled colour and the elastic at the bottom seems to have been messed with. Just want to check. Thanks!
the backpack is fugly. Seriously. the polka dots are ugly and the shape is ugly.
No Frond Swiftlys??
@ anon 4: 12 pm - The tank does hang loosely if the drawcord is not cinched. It's a continuous cord and you knot it to tighten it. Hope this helps.
LLA - anon @ 4:12 - thanks! I think mine's been altered, the cord is quite tight and short. Darn. Thanks!
OMGosh that Spring Fling Backpack is hideous!! Exactly - picnic cooler anyone? WOW when I think it can't possibly get any worse, it really does. Unreal. They are really going after a juvenile customer. Why do they have Ivivia again?Mellow Yellow CRB, I am interested but will need to see it in person. Burning Yellow was such a letdown. Bleached Coral at least is lovely.
I would love a back pack that holds a yoga mat and is not styled for a boy. THIS is NOT that pack. It looks like a poorly designed book bag with no lumbar support. Argh.
I agree with others, that bag is ugly. When I first saw the photos I thought they must be kidding. It looks very junior. A bag like that might be cool if you're younger than 12... I'm excited about the new yellow clothing though!
Hahaha that bag with the polka dots looks like a mushroom!. Must have been what they were on when they came up with it!!.LOL
The backpack makes me think of Spongebob Squarepants....
Ugly back pack! Love her Cartier Love though.......and liking the yellows though would have to see in store.
@ anon 4:46 pm - lol - totally!The dots make it looks like it was designed for a 12 year old. And, as someone pointed out, where is the darn logo? A $100+ lulu bag should have the dang logo on it somewhere. I don't get the move to genericize lulu stuff. At least if you aren't going to throw your logo on everything the style should be so distinctive you would be able to go "that's a lulu bag" at a glance, like a Bottega Veneta bag but the style of the Spring Fling looks like something you find at Walmart - generic and cheap.
Yucky to all !!!!
Really? Weren't we done with the polka dots? The stripes seem to be never ending but please no more dots.Two years ago I sold all of my LLL gym bags, except two, a black and white vintage "bowler" bag, and a yellow Chirp (neither of which I've used but couldn't bring myself to let go). I saved my money and actually purchased a designer bag that I use as a gym bag and have never once since been tempted by any of the new ones at all. Especially this one, yuck.Finally a decent looking yellow, although the two tone SS reminds me of Tweety bird, the long sleeve will be on my list.
Yay! There IS a LS Swiftly in Mellow Lemon. Definite buy for me.For anyone who hasn't seen Mellow Lemon in person yet, it's a very nice baby-ducky kind of yellow. I didn't find it to lean to either green or orange (Like Ray or Burning yellow).
And with that...I am officially leaving Lululemon.
@4:46 that was my first instinct also... it reminds me of Mario! Like the new hello swiftly but I dislike two toned!
I have a feeling that polka dot stuff is coming. Several weeks ago my store got in water bottles that say "spot me" with colored polka dots all over. It made me wonder since they also got the white lace glass water bottle well before all the laceoflage stuff. Seeing this bag, which looks like a junior high schoolers backpack, also leads me to believe more dots are coming.
Just saw the mellow yellow swiftly in store. The color is identical to clarity in the swiftly material. Literally...they had a clarity ls swiftly on md and I put it next to the mellow yellow and couldn't tell the difference. Big difference in luxtreme and Luon from clarity...it's a bright yellow but not neon like clarity. But swiftly was the same.
Does anyone know how Mellow Lemon compares to Clarity Yellow?
That bag looks like it would be really hard to wear full up, it would put you off balance. So bad for the back!
Oh hey, with all this boxy backpack hate, maybe it'll go to WMTM fairly soon and I can get one then. :) I like it!
