Yay for the DHBH pullovers! And deep zinfandel is so pretty - hopefully they will release a crb in it or some interlock power luxtreme crops since I found the inspires a little too sheer for my liking. Boyfriend nixed them in the bend over test in natural light -said he could see everything. I have decided I will not be buying any crops unless they have that material in the bum, preferably all over. It is just so darn flattering and not sheer. I tried on the journey crops for the first time this week and OMG they made my butt look amazing! Better than I've ever seen it look but I couldn't get down with the mesh all down the back.

"In...prepare yourself..Deep Zinfadel." HAHAHA! Anxiously awaiting my Deep Zin Speed Tights. 2 days to go...deliveries take a full week over here on the east coast.
I read on Lulumum's blog that there will be twice-weekly uploads after Thanksgiving, through the holidays. I think my head (and bank account) might explode.

That "Don't Hurry Be Happy" po looks very similar to the Cozy Practice po I bought on Ivivva last week. I got the silver spoon color, and it is so soft and cozy with plush fleecy lining in the body and arms. I absolutely love it! It also comes in peacock (which is a shade lighter than surge) and a grape/quartz color. I bought size 14, and am 5', 103 lbs., 32D for reference.

LLA, you're earlier intel sounds like it's going to be right. Thanks for the update. I could see myself buying this pullover. I almost bought the Avenue Pullover on markdown today. It's actually quite nice. Size 4 was a little too boxy for me but it was comfortable and I liked the high neck. But it was still $79 pre-tax, and not being totally in love with it, I left it at the store.

Attention Toronto shoppers :) Cumberland location also has the Dance Studio in blue for $99. A number of sizes, they were opposite the hanging rack trolley thing. There were some good crops in black with nice waistbands on md too. A number of items, including a selections of various shorts. They also had the green bean Star Runner pullover on md. I love rulu but I passed on this. Little too much green bean for me (though I love my CRB).

I ended up at Winners and got a beautiful pair of low heel, knee high all leather boots made in Italy. They were a great "deal" given the real non-Winners price, never mind what other stores charge for lesser quality. The key is that they actually fit over my muscular runner's calves in jeans. I rarely have luck with the tall boots!

popped into Georgetown (DC) store today to look and touch - hubby and toddler were in the car so it wasn't a real visit. but they had Karmady LS marked down to $49. i'm so sad they've been reported as pilling as badly as any other burnout tees lately - but that's why they were $49.
almost bought the zinfandel/orchid power Y tank but the colors were a little more dull than i expected.
fluff off stuff felt great to the touch!

What about the GW, when's that coming out? Arrgh!! I will be broke by Christmas time.

Thank you for the warning! I do have to prepare myself to get DHBH deep Zinfadel!! I missed last year to get this PO. Can someone tell me if this PO is tts or not? I want to pick a right size when upload as I assume this will sell out so quickly!

OT: might be a bit late to the game, but here's a fit report on the base layer LS ... Size up. I am typically a 6 in tops (80% of the time at least) and I bought the 6 in the upload on Monday. It was tight in the shoulders and while I didn't notice any plastic reinforcements coming through in the seams, the feel of the seams in the armpits were very noticeable. I had an opportunity to pop into a store and try on the 8. The shoulders on the 6 are much more narrow than the 8, which was a huge reason why I felt the seams. Exchanged for the 8.

I also got the fluff off vest in a size 8 ... As I've found that with outerwear, I have to size up (scuba, forme, street to studio, etc). It is still a bit tight across the chest and will probably only be worn with a swiftly under or the base layer LS under, which is what I had planned for skiing anyway.

Hope this helps anyone looking to purchase these.

Yes! I will be getting the deep zin for sure! I absolutely heart my black DHBH I bought last year..it's warm and perfect for our already minus degree weather here.
I'm also holding out for Ivivva pique tights as you can see them all over the tops product pictures on the site.

When does Ivivva have uploads?

sophia said...

@miffy316 - depends the looks you're going for. i know most people stayed tts for a comfy, layerable fit. trouble is that the dhbh is one of those pieces that runs the risk of looking a bit frumpy because of the cut. i sized down to get rid of some of the boxiness - id be able to layer a crb or other tank underneath, but nothing with bulk (that said i found the dhbh to be too hot as it was). hth.

i love the idea of the DHBH much more than the piece itself. it was super comfy and cozy, but too hot to be worn inside, and not enough for outerwear in nyc. plus i hate pullovers as outwear since you have to constantly on/off over your head (and as my hair get super staticky in the winter, this doesn't help). i prefer zippered garments for jackets. i eventually traded mine on fb. hope you ladies enjoy!

I do not understand the hype over Ivivva. Will someone explain this to me? Every time I look at their site, I cringe at the color selection. If I were to wear any of that, people would confuse me for a teenager; it looks so juvenile to me!

But being curious, what are the popular pieces everyone likes and why?! I might have to start looking elsewhere as I am constantly questioning whether I want to keep supporting Chip and his comments about women not fitting into his pants (so ridiculous!).

When is ivivva upload??

OMG Deep Zinfadel DHBH pullover?? EEEEK!!! Must. Have. This.

Am I the only one who kind of loves that lulu has regained enough of its luster to give me the desire to stay up late and stalk the upload, but also kind of hate it because I don't get enough sleep on mondays anymore?lol.

My gym seems to get a lot of LLL before it hits the website or stores. This morning I saw all the deep zin items except the BB CRB. They did have the BB black and grey CRB which I picked up.

The Runaday Crops look very promising! I love my Can't Stop Crops and the RAD Crops have the same high, wide waistband and zipper pocket in the back. I will be ordering these!

I also saw a pink CRB called "Electr". It's a medium tone that's darker than pretty pink. Anyone heard of this?

3:34 I got my deep zinfandel speed run pant and I love them. the color is amazing. I couldn't take them off when they arrived. to me, they are totally worth it. I have 2 other speed run pants the inkwell and also the black with the white waistband and love running in them.
I am loving my no limits tank in the surge color as well as the aria II tank in the deep zinfandel.
those 2 tanks fit me perfectly I got a 6 and I am 5'-3" 116# and busty with wide shoulders 34D

Aw I miss that model! I really liked her. :)

Alright definitely no lulu for me tonight after an expensive week last week and this news!

Is the DHBH a TTS item? I missed to last year.

Just got by Base Runner Pants in the mail! I meant to get the gray, but got the black due to the picture switch-up. But, I love them so much I'll keep them and probably order the gray too. They are insanely comfortable. So soft and stretchy, but stylish too with their skinny fit. Love that they aren't too tight. They hit me right at the ankles. Only negative thing I can find to say is that they are not as thick as I expected. They wouldn't be warm enough for outdoors in the winter most places. More of a Fall pant, unless you are layering them over a tight or something. Still, really love them.

I'm not sure if I will buy DHBH this year except that deep zin is the death of me. I have 2 from the past and I rarely use them here in TX. We shall see. I'm waiting for the en route jacket to go to MD. I want to see what color GW they're coming out with since I have 2. Yes, looks like I will be buying a lot for myself first before anybody else. Oh well, such as life.

Oooh a Deep Zin DHBH? I may have to buy one of those....been trying to decide on what PO/Jacket to get to wear to/from yoga and around the studio.

What other jacket's would people whole-heartedly recommend for to/from yoga and around the studio? Especially with the recent quality decline.

At Anon 6:20AM Ivivva is exact same as Lulu except cheaper and diferrent color patterns.. if you are a size 2/4 Lulu you can get away with most large Ivivva items, sometimes they even fit better than Lulu on petite people like myself.
They usually have identitcal items that Lulu has, I bought a pair of Dance studio pants from Ivivva in size 14 that fit me better than Lulu's size 2.
I also got a grey DHBH like pullover a few weeks ago I adore.
The only downfall is tanks are shorter.

Ivivva uploads are usually late Tuesday night or Wednesday mornings. I think I bought that same grey pullover anon@1208 pm, and I love it! It's so cozy! I love the Hooked on Beats po I got there a month and a half ago as well as the new deep zin down jacket I got last week. Anon@6:20 a.m., Lulu is the parent company of Ivivva, so if you don't want to fund Chip, don't shop there as well. You might be better off at Athleta or Title 9.

I had to just say no to the deep zin speed tights. I have them in black and was looking for another pair - just needed one. I ended up with inkwell because that color was a bit more forgiving with my lumps and bumps. But the deep zin was a LOVELY purple.

I also tried the fluff off pullover and i loved it in my TTS (6) but decided to pass for now. I got so hot in the store I couldn't even believe it! I'm not sure I'll be running in weather cold enough to warrant spending the $158. But boy was it cozy and such a great fit!

Thank you Anon @ 12:08 and Anon @ 1:52! I had no idea that lulu is the parent company of Ivivva. -From Anon @ 6:20 :)

From what I saw about Ivivva, looks like it isn't good for us who wear a 10 or 12. Am I correct?
