Today's Lulu Haul

I hardly ever buy more than two things at a time so today was unusual enough it deserves a post. I went to the store to check out what swiftlys might go with the Wee September Black Inspires and to hopefully exchange them since the pair I ordered came with a slub on one leg. I also wanted to check out what the crops looked like in a three way mirror and I really liked them - they were not sheer - so they are keepers for sure. I ended up getting the Blue Moon Short Sleeve Swiftly but the Split Pea looked really nice, too, with the Inspires. The Blue Moon will also go with my Deep Indigo and Limitless Blue Wee Space Run Crops I bought last year. I also tried on the Angel Wing, which looked nice, but white and off white Swiftlys don't excite me that much. I also ended up getting the Soot Ziggy Wunder Under crops. I had read reports that these were opaque and they are. (The opaque ones are the Raspberry Glo and Soot. I haven't tried the plum yet but the black and inkwell are a bit sheer.) I also got a couple of markdown Ta Ta Tamers. They are kind of fug but they were half price. My other TTTs are getting a bit wrinkly in the cups due to some weight loss so these markdown bras happened along at the right time.

September Black Inspires with Blue Moon SS, Pink Shell LS, and the Heathered Soot LS Swiftly.


The Black Wee Space Inspires with Pop Orange, Sea Wheeze 2012 Dark Plum Stripe, Pow Pink, Spry, and Paris Pink Swiftly tanks. I guess I had more Swiftlys than I thought that will look nice with them. However, all my other short sleeves Swiftlys are kind of big now so I "needed" the Blue Moon I bought today. ;-)

This is not me. lol.
I also tried on the new Dyhana Tee and really like the fit and feel. It was super soft and the fit is very flattering (I think a loose TTS). However, the reviews on the website mention some quality issues.


I tried on the Run For Fun crops in the embossed Paisely print. Some people have written they are on the sheer side and I'd have to agree. They are not bad standing upright but if you bend too much they go a bit sheer. That is a bummer because I really like the fit of them. I thought they felt super comfortable.

Nice haul, LLA! Do you mind saying how much you paid for the TTT's? You are looking darn hawt too! That blue moon (it really goes well with your skin tone!) really looks great with those pants as does the plum! (Those were the two colors I was pimping for in that earlier thread). I had vacillated today between going and not going to the mall. Now, I'm wishing I went!

They were half price - $29 - so a very nice deal. If you live in the area there were a number of sizes of those two Ta Ta Tamers on the markdown racks at Fashion Island.

Nice work! I received black Don't Stop Crops today in the mail and they are TOTALLY see through! How is this still happening????

Funny that you didn't find the Soot Ziggy WUC sheer. I tried on the Soot Ziggy WUP on and you could see my pop orange light as air hipster through them. I did buy and keep the Plum Ziggy WUC and didn't find them sheer and the Rasp Glo ones were good too.

Forgive me LLA, I was quite shocked thinking that was you bc I thought, "what happened to her boobs!!?" No disrespect to the actual lady in the pic. lol, congrats on your weight loss. Ain't it grand that the boobs always seem to have no probs losing weight? And personally, I think your black WAFS go with everything. :)

@lulu - I had on violet underwear and I had to get into a very deep squat to start to see them through them material. The black were much more sheer.

I have the embossed crops and I can't tell if they are sheer. They reflect the light so much I can't tell if the white I see the the print or my pasty non-tanned bum. Love them, so ill keep them ;)

PSA: I just bought a pair of Wonder Under pants labeled heathered slate/black on the US site, the pictures are of the herringbone WU that previously sold out a few weeks ago. This better not be a mistake on the website! They have all sizes right now!!!! GO BUY!!!!

I've noticed a few people asking for feedback on what colors work well with the Black Wee Space bottoms.

Personally, I love the Black Wee Space with Split Pea combination. Sometimes I put a l/s grey or black top over the split pea.

Ha ha! I thought that was you! Thanks for the pricing on the TTT's! :)

I purchased a new bag today called the Carry Me Om, was a mix of a bag and a tote for $128.00. Got it in black. It's able to click in the middle to be a bag and open up to a tote that can hold 50#. I can post photos if this is indeed a new bag

LuluAddict said...

@wmm014 - I can't find them. Are they under the Wunder Under section?

LuluAddict said...

Never mind - found them.

I was just looking in the pants section and realizes the studio pants with the liner are up $20 in price... I just bought a white pair last year for $98. Ugh, that's kinda a big jump especially after people are complaining about how the waist bands roll now :(

@wmm014 - aaahhhh thank you! I have been dying for these. I can still take stuff I buy online to be hemmed at the stores, correct? I know these will be way too long on me and I'd rather not have all that extra fabric bunched around my ankles...

are they nice? any review?

Cupcake Puff said...

OT -- Were the En Route Crops uploaded already? I can't seem to find them on the US or Canadian website. Love the high rise!!! :)

Definitely a nice haul! I don't think those TTT are bad looking at all. Besides, they will be hidden under tanks so for $29 that is an amazing deal!

Thanks for the colors around the WAFS inspires! I was thinking Pop Orange would look great. I think it would also look great with Plum WAFS as well.

I'm loving the dhyana tees. They look so comfortable. Will have to check out the reviews.

I have a bunch of new lulu to try out but unfortunately I am sick today so will not be going to the gym... :(

It's a beautiful indian summer day on the east coast though.

@wmm014
Thanks! Bought one. :) Hope they are as pictured!

Awesome! Just bought some. Fingers crossed the pictures are correct. Thanks for the intel!

Julie said...

Yay! Have been dying to get these, thank you! I never would have seen them. :)

The Energy Bra is $29 too! Best deal. They are my favorite bras!

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 6:08 pm- i did end up ordering the midnight iris energy for $29 from loot. I've had to downsize in those, too.

Anonymous said...

I also ordered a midnight iris energy bra. I'm not crazy about the print but no one will see it anyway, except maybe peeking out the top of a CRB. This will be my first energy bra so I'm excited to try it out. And I agree - $29 is a steal!

Hey LLA, I also picked up the soot ziggy WUC this week, and as you mentioned, no sheerness at all. I found them to be super stretchy sothe size down fit better. First time iI've ever sized down from a 4 to a 2 in WU.

I just tried on the crops with the pockets yesterday, love! I'm new to LuLu
