Beautiful Baroque Forme, Pure Balance Sweater,


The Deep Zinfandel Beautiful Baroque Define  oops! Forme. Too bad the color is washed out in this photo. I was skeptical of the gold zippers in the website photos when I first saw this but now I think it really works for this print. I am dying to see some more photos of this now.



Photos of the new Pure Balance sweater. If the fabric is as soft as in the new Knit Happens items I'd be interested in it.


New Winter Orchid/Deep Zinfandel Power Y. I might like this one.




The black plaid Groovy Run shorts with a matching Swiftly.


New waistband in the Astro Pants.

From Australia Yogi Racerback made out of burnout material and Yeah Yoga Bra, Tank, and Crop.


The Black Beautiful Baroque Cool Racerback.


Enfold Wrap.

Deep Zinfandel Virasana Wrap



New Sweat Once A Day Gym Bags (thanks to Ms. E. and Ms. A. for the photos.)

And too bad that's a forme and not a define (LLA I think you agree subconsciously;). I like the gold zipper accents too. Call me crazy, but I'm positive the inspiration came from this or lulumum's blog. I recall reading comments mentioning how cool it would be if gold accent zippers were added to jackets like the define. I think it really works for this piece - bravo design team.

@ anon 9:26 pm - I know but the Defines are gone for now and the Forme II is much better than the Forme. I am dying to see this one in person.

That Power Y is very pretty. Think I need that. Very interested in the new bag. Will definitely be trying on that pure balance sweater too. I got a chai time pullover and it's probably my favorite thing I own (for casual wear) I regret not buying one in each color. If this is half as good as that then I'm sold.

I just got the Beautiful Baroque Forme II today. It is gorgeous IRL.I agree that the zippers really work here.

Hi LLA, any Intel on the material composition for the BB CRB? If it's anything like the Paisley CRB I'll have to size up as I prefer a more forgiving fit. TIA.

The CRB is beautiful!
I live in Toronto and have yet to see the Herringbone Forme!!!!! Any Canadians had any luck?

That new power y is luon, not luon light. The new grooves and Astros are full on too!

I saw the baroque (forme)- I got excited when I read define in your post) in store yesterday. Its eye catching for sure, I didn't try it on because I wasn't sure how much I would wear it, now I am thinking I should go back and give it a try. I love that gold gym bag, very cute! Was that in store or to come?

Not that it really matters since the Forme doesn't fit me (it looks like a crop jacket!), but I'm not sure I understand the gold zipper but deep zin zipper pull. That seems odd to me.

LLA, my store had the sweater last night. Definitely felt soft and cozy like the rest of that line. Just too boxy (and short!) for me. I was sad because I love all my Lulu sweaters.

I really like this forme II - the gold zippers are nice with the print.

That was a slip... you called the jacket a Define.

those zippers almost look rose gold colored to me here. hmm. that could be pretty. i need to see this in person. has anyone felt it? please describe, if you have. it's listed as 'textured'.

LuluAddict said...

@anon 6:26 am - this is what happens when I do posts later in the day. Thanks for the correction.

the zinfandel color is really nice so it the winter orchid. I have never been a purple person, but lately I have been really attracted to purple. the beautiful baroque pattern is really nice as well.

Zippers are rose gold. Don't have any other forme jackets but I really like this. Color us beeeeautiful! Wasn't sure about the zippers but I think it'll be a keeper bc of the color! It's not textured though. Not too familiar with other formes but this may be a tad higher on the poly?

I just bought my first CRB (Luon Light). I was wondering if the Luon Light stretches out with time. Does anyone know? Should I size down? I'm wearing it now, and it seems like it could bag out if it stretches with time. I've never bought anything made out of Luon Light or a CRB before. Thanks for your help! (I love this blog, thanks, LLA!)

@ anon 7:56 am - no, lululemon stuff does not stretch out over time. If you are doing a super sweaty workout it will get wet and heavy and then stretch a bit with the weight of the water but pops right back into shape after drying out/laundering.

The zippers on that print may be attractive tosome, but the combo just seems pretty loud to me. Even if Iliked it I'd get tired of it pretty quickly.

I'm tempted by that cozy, soft looking sweater, but my experience with Lulu's knitwear is pilling, pilling, pilling, and snags. I'll buy myself a real cashmere sweater instead.

Thanks, LLA@8:42!

Yet another potentially cute top ruined by making it out of burnout. All the burnout tops have such terrible reviews. Why do they keep making them?

I agree that lulu stuff may stretch a bit with a particularly sweaty workout but goes back to normal with washing. Nothing ever stretches so bad that it looks bad or feels uncomfortable though. And I've only ever had luon or swiftly material stretch.

I saw a couple of herringbone formes yesterday at the Cumberland store, and lots of piqués. I didn,t investigate any further, b/c the grey colour does not agree with my complexion. I picked up a zinfandel rose scuba; I can,t resist the temptation of printed scubas. Re: BB forme with the gold rose zipper. It looked blingy, not something I would reach for on a regular basis. Beautiful baroque print means perhaps the renaissance of Lululemon, it is indeed beautiful!

Anon at 4 16 - saw the herringbone forme at Sq One today.

@ 7:56, I fully agree with LLA's comments and just wanted to offer this: on the stretching when sweating, this will definitely happen. I can wear both a size 2 and size 4 LLL CRB. They are both comfortable when dry, and the 2 is not too tight. However, if I'm going to wear a CRB to hot yoga or go for a really long run (I sweat a lot), I will not wear a size 4. The 4's will get way too droopy with sweat, while the 4 will still remain fitted. Ultimately you want to be comfortable no matter what.

The Beautiful Baroque CRB: I saw this in store just today (but am waiting for my mail order one to arrive). I didn't check the tag, just looked at and felt the material, it's fairly poly. I have paisley and imo, the paisley CRB feels better.

I saw the Beautiful Baroque deep zinfandel Forme ii and it seems nice, even with the rose gold zipper or whatever it's called. I'm not into the Forme ii myself so won't be buying this.

Thank you both so much! I was able to find my coveted Herringbone Form @ Eaton Centre! I went there numerous times over the past 2 weeks to no avail. Finally they had them today!

I also picked up a pair of the plaid Groovy Run shorts and Rulu gloves. I have 2 other pairs of the gloves and 1 pair of the mitts but I keep losing one or all! They are so soft and easy to stuff in my pockets that I could not resist another!
