What color and type of blue tank is the girl wearing with split pea shake and break? Very pretty vibrant color!
The second one with the brick floor is Northpark in Dallas.
does anyone actually wear their bangbuster like this lady? (all the product shots on the website are the same) i put mine under my hair - to actually keep it out of my face!
I don't think there is any other lululemon print I dislike as much as the Ziggy. It's truly horrible.
I love the photos of the shake and break shorts, but I tried them on in the plum/raz hyper stripe and the legs were huge! Looked cute only from the side. The photos I've seen don't really reflect the large legs. Anyone else feel that way about them or did I just try on a defective pair? (or, I guess it could just be my body type)
Ugh they wear those bang busters so crazy, even online they wear them the most unflattering way possible... Like they are in a gang?? I wear mine like a headband... Am I not suppose to? :/
The blue tank is probably a cornflower crb!
11:18 i do sometimes, but not for working out.M
Any idea when the upload will be tonight? Did they push it back or was last week just late?
OT Venting: Just received an email from LLL RE: we need to talk... It says "Do you still want to hear from us? Let's not make this any more awkward than it has to be...we're cleaning up our email list. Do you want to work it out or are we breaking up?"Seriously, am I missing some kind of Canadian humor here? Because I don't find it at all funny or cute that a company where I spend $100+ weekly between online and supporting a local storefront blatantly tells me they are not interested in my business. Clearly their email is not correctly targeted since I still purchase from them. But had I taken a vacation from buying their products, how about a nice message like "how can we get you back? Here's a discount because we value your business". Holy coconuts that message ticked me off so much that I RSVPd to Athleta's new store opening. (warning to all men out there. Don't break up with me ;)
I wear my bangbuster under my hair only. I honestly think the bangbuster is odd looking no matter how you wear it (not cute at all). But for a super sweaty, intense workout there really is no substitute. So I don't care how stupid I look. People at the gym poke fun at me for always having headbands to coordinate...then ask me where they can get one.
Anon 12:11 I couldn't agree more. I abhor the ziggy print. It looks so old ladyish to me. But hey that's great for my wallet!!And about the bang buster. I wouldn't consider myself trying to look like I'm in a 'gang' but I wear mine across my head 'hippy style' like that a lot casually and actually get a ton of compliments. But I'm from AZ and lots of women wear headbands like that...
@1:29I totally agree with you, lll is so rude to its "guests" not very gracious hosts to people who wether u buy a little or a lot your gonna drop a BILL on the brand. No other company would get away with this, If Nike decided to use the same return policy people would boycott
@ 12:12, I agree about the Shake and Break shorts. I wanted to like them since they have a more modest inseam than the speed shorts (which are definitely a no go for me personally on account of the skimpiness). Unfortunately, the shake and break shorts were a poor fit for my body (type: wide hips, slim but toned runners legs which require a 34" inseam for full length pants, typically size 6 or 8 for a more modest/tailored-looking fit). I wish Lulu would come out with some shorts that work for me since their fit and fabric are usually great on crops and tops! For now, sticking with Oiselle running shorts....
@ anon 2:45 pm - I didn't care for the Shake and Break shorts either. The legs flared out weirdly on me. Have you tried the Groovy Run shorts? Those and the Track Attacks are my favorites. I probably give the nod to the Groovy Runs since they are set up nicely for running - back zipper pocket and two front slot pockets for gels. The plum ones are sweet softness.
@ anon 2:45 I second the comment on the Groovy Run & Track Attack shorts. I love the longer lenghth and both are really comfortable for running.
@ 1:29 PM, whatever "OT venting'. Chill out. Of course it would make sense that they cross reference their list with those who actually made recent purchases. Since they didn't do that and they're just doing some administration, is it really so hard for you to indicate you want to stay subscribed? After all, you took the time to vent here and all LLL admin is looking for is a yay or nay.Seriously, first world "problems".
I'm Canadian. Apparently I'm lacking "Canadian humor" because I don't find your comment about it any cuter than Lululemon's email to you.
I just had half of my hair cut off, and it is too short for a ponytail yet long enough to fall in my face. So I've been wearing my bang buster over my hair, and it works really well. It isn't a look that I particularly love, but it does what it is supposed to.
Re: Anon 1:29-- Chill out. Lulu's branding and marketing is irreverent, whimsical, and fun. Expect them to be (or attempt to be) humorous and don't take it so seriously.Re: bangbuster styles--I'm a male educator in LA and a ton of girls wear the BB over the top of their hair like this model, including educators and guests. In my opinion, it's the classic lulu headband look. I love it.
I know some of you don't care for the Ziggy print but I got the plum Ziggy crops n I'm in love! Just ordered the WUP in Inkwell Ziggy cuz it looks great with ALL COLORs." different strokes for different folks"
1:29 here...I'm not griping about the difficulty of reply or the time of dealing with it. The issue is the pretentious nature of the message. Yes, LLL marketing has a quirky vibe, but it usually makes you smirk and feel good about supporting the brand. The break-up email reminds me of the time an individual store's FB page made fun of Oprah for wearing an older Define jacket. Alienating your customers, whether veterans or newbies, is an extremely poor marketing strategy. Perhaps they are sacrificing high-caliber talent in the mkt department and instead spending the money on improving their products. I'd rather have the better products, but not if I start feeling ashamed to wear their logo. And that email made me feel that way.
I'm with 1:29 here. And to the "first world problem" commenter - we wear $80 plus yoga pants - all of our problems are first world or we wouldn't be on this blog. Lets be real here.
9:37 I actually found that e-mail very humorous in a black humor sort of way, but we are all different, some more sensitive than others, I am always amused by some of the weird stuff lulu does that is off. If you feel offended, break up with them and move on.First world issues indeedM
