Went a little crazy and just bought:Full Tilt - raspberry hyperstripe (no more in my size for Angel Wing :/ )Speed Tight CozyRest Less Tank in angel wing and hyperstripe - only keeping one, I'd like to see these in person Headband in ZiggyMy WUP in textured is on its way to me too... So excited due to all your comments!!
Those vests are atrocious.. but I love the ziggy black print!
Is it just me or are those scuba vests hideous?
I saw those vests at the store and they are horrible! They are obviously recycled scubas! It's a great idea, and I'm not hating on the idea, but to pass it off as an original design concept is ridiculous. Notice LLL didn't use any "new" colors or prints, I wonder.....? They should have offered them as a special WMTM item at about $49. "Hey, we made to much, so we altered the sleeves and made vests for you!" Personally I've had a few of my long sleeved pull overs and jackets altered to short sleeves for the summer and I think it's fine. But if they wanted to pretend they weren't making lemonade out of lemons they should have thrown a current color into the mix! jmoI'm really liking a lot of the new Fall products though! And I agree with you LLA, save your money and your time for the new things!
Cant help but think the suns out guns out are just recycled scubas that werent selling....sorry, wanting to love them
OT-has anyone tried the Midnight Iris Inspire crops? Just wondering how the luxtreme is on them. I picked up the inkwell recently and found those to be more opaque and compressive, so am wondering if the midnight iris might be the same or if it was because it was a different color TIA!!!
Those scubas with arms cut off are HORRIBLE!!! How could they even release along with these amazing other products? Yuk
@ anon 8:13 pm - they are fug. Speculation is they repurposed older colors by cutting the arms off.
Saw the vests in person.....omg awful.
Someone mentioned their full tilt ls in angel wing had stripes that did not line up. I checked mine and it is nearly perfect. Same with the plum. I also checked a few of my recent crb striped purchases and they are all nearly perfect as well. The pattern may be off a bit where the garment curves but not terribly so. For all the quality problems, I haven't noticed too many of those mishaps (beachy floral and faded dots from last summer would be an exception) and as a wearer of prints, it is usually my first concern. If you love the ftls in angel I would try another store if possible. :)
I'm in the minority here but I thought the vests were kind of cute! And I'm not even into scubas!
@ Anon 7:43 i have the Midnight Iris Inspires. (i don't have the Inkwell to compare.) if i do the bend test, i can faintly make out the white tag inside, but it's definitely not as sheer as other items they've released. i haven't worn them for a run yet (it's still way too hot), but i do like the compression on them--definitely better than other brands i've tried.
I'd be interested to compare the scuba colours (ie the bleached coral, spry/ beach blanket and wild lime) and the corresponding logo colour on the hood and inner ribbon colour on the inside zipper to see if they're exactly the same as the hoodies.. I bet everyone who posted speculating that the vests are just repurposed hoodies, is right on the money. They're pretty fug, I don't know why lulu wouldn't have put them in WMTM for $89 - when these vests will undoubtedly end up there for $49 or less... No way I'd spend any more than about $19 on these.. haha and probably not even then!
I don't know why they didn't send those "vests" straight to the outlets, they're ugly. They've repurposed things before - the "BFT - Boyfriend Tee" was a re-cut mens shirt. I ended up buying one on markdown for $24. It was a Shell Pink one (I think, it was a girly pale pink) made of sheer luon and makes a great around the house or sleep shirt.
I agree with everyone regarding the vests, they are terrible. I just thought it's because I don't like any of lulus jackets or vests, never buy them, but these are over the top for, and they will end up in WMTM bin, and I think people will buy them. I also don't like the ruffled CRB.M
I don't own a scuba, but, I think the vests are cute! It stays fairly warm year around where I live, so I think I would get more use out of this vest than a full on long sleeve scuba. Curious what the pricing will be on them.
They are for $68. :)I don't mind being in the minority here. I love these vests: fun, flattering and perfect for our weather here right now, not to mention you can play with different tops underneath to get that so called "color block" effect without being stuck with one combo. Hope they come in more colors~
