Plum Still Pants, Midnight Iris Energy Tank, and More

The Plum Still pants looks so nice with the Midnight Iris Cool Racerback. I bought that tank right before I left for Vancouver and am wearing it today with Charcoal WUs.

New Midnight Iris Energy Tank. Shown with a Race Me LS and Run For Your Life crops in the plum hyper stripe pattern.

Blue Moon and Plum Hyper Stripe Power Ys

Note the headband. Hopefully there will be a tank in that pattern.



Some more Track to Reality crop photos in Inkwell and Plum. Shown with the Blue Moon Race Me LS and Inkwell/Blue Moon Cool Racerback.



Chai Time Pullover photos. Shown with the Midnight Iris Wunder Under Pants in the top photo.

Midnight Iris Wunder Unders - look how saturated the pattern is over her knee - it has been going white/getting faded in similar black-based patterns-  and Chai Time Pullover.



The new Fast Cat skirts. Note the new chevron gray pattern on the right.


The Blue Moon Race Me LS. Not the new print in the headband. Hopefully, there will be a CRB in this.

 Bitty Bracer, Shake and Break shorts, and Race Me SS.


 Sea Check plaid Fast Cat Skirt. It kills me that this pattern is listed as "Sea Wheeze" on eBay.

 Hustle and Bustle tank in Plum with Raspberry Glo hyperstripe Run For You Life Crops.


The men are getting Plum, too. These are the 7" Surge Shorts.

Really like the Cheveron gray Fast Cat skirt! I ordered the Sea Check but it hasn't arrived yet. But if there is the gray then I am definitely returning the sea check!

Ohhh, those plum stills are yummy. I live in Stills in the winter. I wasn't a huge fan of the midnight iris CRB but seeing them with the stills they look beautiful together.

What do you think our chances are of seeing the sea check Groovies upload on Tuesday? They were on the Aussie side this week, so envious!

Oh and belated congrats to all of the Sea Wheeze runners. I'm not much of a fan of organized races, I prefer to go solo with my sport beans and my headphones but this one looks like it was fun. I'm glad you all had a great time (in both contexts).

Ooh I'm a sucker for gray stripes and chevron.... Wonder what else is going to come in this pattern?! It almost looks like a seersucker.

love your blog LLA... visit it everyday thank you!

The plum wunder unders in the website's pant banner look high waisted! They are gorgeous! I have the bordeaux from las year but these seem more lively!

My store never got the tech mesh tights so I just ordered them. Really curious to see them on.

That's the slalom slope angel stripe fast cat skirt. I picked it up in store as it sold out online before I could order.

The wide-neck long sleeve top looks a bit Flashdance to me.

Ooh! Love that chevron Fast Cat skirt as well! I just got my Sea Check yesterday, and I am digging that as well. The shape is so figure flattering! I can see my bank account taking a hit in the next upload if that skirt and the plum Dance Studio jacket are in it!

@ LLA there IS a CRB coming in that inkwell/split pea/plum etc headband (it's on the tank banner of the AUS site now) :)

Wow, some new items in WMTM already! Runbeam ss in zippy green, all sizes at the moment, as well as Run Fast Track ss in cool breeze, all sizes. Both for $49. Love red Run Inspires for 59, Groovy Run short in nimbus stripe, all sizes but 2 for $39.

LLA - how do you like your Midnight Iris CRB? I've heard mixed feelings on the fabric in this color.

Ugh, I'm so sad I missed the chai time in a 2. I went to my store twice in 24 hours to try on the 4 and I really just can't do it, it's too baggy under the arms. That might be an ebay stalk for me...

I loved the fit of the RFYLs but not the stripe. If it came in a solid plum, i'd be all over it.

I've been waffling on getting the midnight iris crb for over a week, but after seeing it with the plum stills, I think I need to have it. (And the plum stills, too...)

Would those plum pants be wunder unders with such a high rise to them? It's almost like a skinny will rise, but I don't see the drawstring... Hmm. Not digging it though, which is probably a good thing for my wallet.

@1:33 My local store notification email showed they had the Chai Time II in stock. I was going to see if I could pick one up for a friend tonight or tomorrow, would you like me to look for you? If so shoot me a line macfrannie@gmail.com.

i went to a store today in nyc - just to try on a few things and to see the sea check PS skirt - i ordered it earlier this week (didn't want to miss out) but i just couldn't wait to try it on - it's great! it feels a little different than my other PSs but still very great! i tried on the fast cat in Cheveron gray - v v v cute. if you love the PS i think you might love this as well. the only problem for me is i can only wear the PS in tall - the regular is just waaay too short for me - the fast cat - way too short but i loved it sooo much i nearly bought it. i also tried and brought the midnight iris WU - usually i don't like silk screening on the WUs b/c they turn white - when stretched - but i was super surprised to love these. i'm so looking forward to the "in the flow" crops in plum!

Are the Still pants STILL PANTS Or Still grounded pants?

Tried on the Track to Reality Pants - runs large. I went with my typical sizing for Studio Pants and was glad. One size down. The Plum is gorgeous!

@4:25 I just got back from my local store and they had the Plum STILL pants.

They also had Groovy Run in the Sea Check and they had restocked the RSS (GRRRRR, I had already over spent on a pair from ebay, oh well).

I also tried on the Fat Cat skirt and I was pleasantly surprised. The first photos I saw, I thought it looked like a cheer leader skirt but on, I thought it was cute and flattering. I also changed my mind about the Sea Check Shake and Bake shorts, they are much better in person than in the official LLL photos. I liked them so much I got pair. They are loose and I was able to get them in my regular size 8.

It was the first time I've been in my store when they are unpacking things from the new upload. It was sort of neat. No DSJ or WU in Plum at the Tyson's corner store. But they did have Chai Time II.

macfrannie said...

@ Anon !:33PM I took a chance and got the Chai Time II in the light/white color in a size 2 for you since they had them in stock. Shoot me an email if you would like to coordinate sending it to you. FWIW, I only expect reimbursement for the cost of the item plus tax and actual mailing costs to send the item to you. If I don't hear back from you maybe someone else will want it or I'll just take it back to the store. I'm most definitely NOT a size 2. LOL

Still pants. Regular and tall.

Maybe it's just me but I'm sure glad I bought the sea check in Speed shorts because I tried on the groovy Run shorts and they ran smaller than my other Groovys and felt a bit stiffer. That's saying alot since I always buy Groovys over Speeds.

If those wu plum are high waisted, I'm definitely grabbing them off the shelves. I have terrible love handles, and no matter how much weight I lose, I still have them. So whenever I wear lulu pants with more constriction in the waist, I'm extremely self conscious.

When do puffer vests come out? The "View all women's clothing" banner on the US site has a gorgeous plum vest. I am definitely overloading on all of the plum items...it is my favorite color so it is difficult to determine what items to buy and which to pass on.

What's that little purse/bag? I'm loving it!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:39 pm - it's the zip off part of the back to class backpack

macfrannie - I can't wear a two but that was super nice of you to do for someone. May the good come back to you. Let us know if there is anything you ever need help finding!!!

Xeriwinged said...

I am so, so sad I ended up missing out on the sea check speed shorts ): If anyone has a size 8 kicking aroun, I'd be happy to take them off your hands! (sunnyboulevard@gmail.com)

Maybe that cute chevron pattern will end up on the speeds!

Macfrannie you are so sweet! I am not a size 2 either but needed to comment about how thoughtful you are!

Bought some RFYL hyperstripe crops. Really liked them in store, but am planning on checking out the fit/quality in natural light at home. I bought an 8, but may want to go down to 6. Any suggestions on the compression? These are my first RFYL crops, normally I wear WU's.

Also tried on a chai time pullover. Soft and pretty, but the arms were wayyyy too tight for me. FYI, I do crossfit and oly weightlifting, so arms and shoulders a little bit, um, jacked. Just FYI, it looks great on the girls with slender arms above!

I just picked up the chai pullover and opted to size down. My normal size was a little to long. I plan to wear this mostly with jeans. Does anyone know if they stretch out or if the hold their shape. It's mostly rayon and tercel so I am thinking it won't stretch out much Just curious because I hate to see all the lines and seams from the jeans, pockets/ button/ waistband. Ya know.

@ anon 1:34 pm - I tried on the hyper stripe RFYL crops on yesterday and loved them. In my TTS they were opaque and in size down they were more compressive but I could kind of see my nude underwear through them. I have two pairs of RFYL and they are super soft and comfy to run in but it seems to me the printed luxtreme is more soft and slippery than compressive. Definitely check out your backside in good light to see if you can go down a size.

According to the tag they are the Still pants *R

Macfrannie. You are such a sweetheart! Just wanted to write this eventhough the Chai Time is not my thing. May good fortune visit you often. Love you!!!

Has anyone tried on the plum Still pants? I tried them on today and noticed the luon felt different from my other Still pants from this past winter. It felt thinner and stiffer to me. Was it my imagination or did anyone else notice something awry?

macfrannie said...

@ Anon 10:16AM, I have several pair of old Still pants and I got the new Plum ones the other day. After reading your comment I compared the Plum with my pants, I have Black, Grey, Cream and brushed Black. The Plum are definitely a bit "stiffer" and maybe less soft than the other Stills I have but mine have been worn and washed a few times (though I don't use fabric softener and either use woollite or sport wash for my LL). They felt like they were in between the regular stills and the brushed ones in terms of hand, if that makes sense.

I really like them, they are a warm rich color and similar to the burgundy from last year. I have a pair of burgundy pants if anyone wants a comparison photo.

Have a great weekend.
