I keep studying and blowing up pic after pic of the tunic thinking WTH is peplum? Looks all the same fabric to me. Then I Binged it. Ohhh, I see now ,-)

While I agree the tunic will not suit everyone (including me), I like the idea it it. I'm currently not one to wear my LLL casually, but I really want to wear some of my WUPs and WUCs out shopping or on the plane. I see gals wearing WUs with denim shirts and boots and it looks cute, but I can't seem to pull it off without looking like I'm going to a rodeo.

So a soft, middle weight top that covers the bum (and that is lower cut to show off a necklace) would be on my wish list!

Those chai times look long. I have one from fall and I don't think it's that long. I'm short. : /

Not a fan of peplums. Why on earth would I want to call attention to my hips? Some people look good in them, but not me! The sweater and that top are both ridiculously overpriced.

hum the peplum is hard to tell if its a hit or a miss, alot of peplum where the peplum starts is often too high, i hop the drop is at low hip before the peplum starts also it has to be volumous enough not too tight as well its a particular cut that is either right on or not and most often its off.

Does anyone know how close zing pink is to pinkalicious?

as many other people have said, that peplum "dress" is absolutely hideous. it looks like it's for a 5 year old.

can anyone comment on the fit of the chai time pullover? tts, or size down? i missed it before & am excited to see it is back, though it doesn't look like it fits those models great. i would like it to be fitted but not tight. im usually a 6 in tops/bras but size down to a 4 for baggier tops like the open your heart long sleeve.

Ok, so I was looking for a Vinyasa scarf. I haven't bought one yet, ever, so I saw a video on the lulu website showing how to wear it. I started watching it, and the first way the girl demo'd was the same way a terrorist would wear a scarf and then the film went all scratchy like the terrorist films do. The rest of the video seemed fine. Are they making fun of the war, because they don't support it, or am I being too critical and making something out of nothing???

In fall I bought my tts 6 ( like you I wear 6 usually, sometimes 4) and I find the arms are tight but the body of the sweater is a little loose and long. I think I'm sizing down if I order one this time. Hope that helps! : )

Re:Chai pullover. The material and the length are nice, but not everybody can pull off a boat neck. I like my pullovers to cover as much as possible, othervise I'm cold. And a scarf will not fill out a boat neck...

Are the chai time pullovers in Canada yet?

I was thinking the same thing! I would love to see the comparison.

@anon 5:06 - "same way a terrorist would wear a scarf" ???

Wow. I honestly hope you aren't serious. But I don't think I need to emphasize how ignorant a comment like that is, especially as someone with many friends who wear a headscarf for religious purposes, and as someone who also lived in the Middle East for a couple of years.

To answer your question, you are making something out of nothing.

(And I do apologize if I come across as rude, but I am really quite offended by your comment).

OT - I'm looking for the Yeah Yoga Tank. Absolutely LOVED the look of it online but really wanted to try it on in person first. I never saw it in store, and now it's sold out! Has anyone seen it in stores? Thanks!

Anon 5:06. OMG. Do you possibly mean a Niqab, which is not, as you say, "the way a terrorist would wear a scarf", but a traditional item of clothing worn by perfectly normal, peaceful people in probably half of the world's current population? Please put your strange, offensive ignorance away and get your facts straight before posting something so incendiary and offensive.
For your reference, to avoid future embarrassment:
"A niqab (Arabic: نِقاب‎ niqāb , "veil" or "mask"; also called a ruband ) is a cloth which covers the face as a part of sartorial hijab. It is worn by some Muslim women in public areas and in front of non-mahram adult males. The niqab is worn in the Arab countries of the Arabian Peninsula such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, and the UAE. The niqab is also worn in countries such as Somalia, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, India, Bangladesh as well as some parts of Palestinian-ruled territories, southern provinces of Iran, neighborhoods in England, and additional areas with sizeable Muslim populations."

I have a Chai Time II sweater from last winter (?) or whenever it was out last. I just pulled it out of my closet today. It has a bunch of snags and pills. I have worn it last than 5 times. I sized down on it quite a bit (at least 1 maybe 2 sizes). The arms are really tight. Try before you buy. I wrote to the company about it snagging a few months ago. They wouldn't take it back and gave me a $20 coupon.

Anon 7:34, you just listed most of the world's countries where there is state-sponsored terrorism, terrorist activity, oppression of women and gays and a marked lack of peace and stability. That said, not everyone who wears a headscarf is a terrorist and the original comment was not politically correct or in the best taste.

Tried on the tunic. The material is super soft ! But the cut just does not fit well on my 5'4 muscular frame. I wanted to like it but it's an easy pass. It needs to be a little more adjusted in the mid-section and a little shorter (for my height). The cardigan is aweful.

Thanks for having this blog! I got a pair of Zella live-in leggings last month and really like them. I've worn them for yoga, crossfit, and under a dress so far. If we do a lot of running they slide down a little but about the same as my WUs. I had a bad hemming experience at Lulu this past week and just saw that they made #8 on US Most Hated Companies list: http://247wallst.com/special-report/2014/01/10/the-10-most-hated-companies-in-america-3/3/

Meanwhile, went to a free Zella 'workshop' this afternoon put on by Nordstrom by an ambassedor (who is a personal trainer). She taught a full class, then gave out goodie bags, they had fancy organic juices and salads from local sponsors, water for us all, and afterwards we went over to active wear and picked out a complimentary Zella headband and underwear. Needless to say, I was pretty impressed. Yes, some of it was free advertising, but if I like the headband and/or underwear, you can bet I'll be switching over to them for more stuff! (But I still love my Lulu!)

Wow, whoever commented on the scarf video - you really don't get out much do you? Very close minded (and bizarre) view of the world, I pity you and hope you learn from your negative and naive and hateful comment here and rethink your perspective on others. I will try not to judge you based on your publicly shared negative thoughts and you should work on not judging others whose culture/religion/life you do not understand or know much about.

Peplum Tunic Fit Report: I found this top in heathered black and inkwell in the NYC Union Square store yesterday. I tried it on in my LLL TTS 4 (I have a runner/athletic build: small arms & chest, waist & hip close in inches, muscular thighs). The fabric is very soft and warm. I actually loved the fit of the top. The top isn't too boxy, the arms are not as tight in TTS as some of the recent tops (ie Flip Your Dog), the dropped waist hits about a 1-2" above the hips so that the peplum doesn't add too much volume to the hips, plus, it isn't to "ruffle-ly" or voluminous to give what I call the "hippo in a tu-tu" look. Given the fit and the darker colors, I didn't feel this top was as childish as many recent viewers thought it might be. I think it will be a great top for coming & going to the gym and for wearing over & toning down some of my louder (Inkblot, March Wee Space, Ziggy Print) WUC while running errands.

I have a heathered white/silver spoon Chai Time pullover from the 2013 fall release (I think the girl on the right of the photo is wearing the same version). I definitely could have sized down in the body & length, but the arms are tight so I bought my TTS so that I could add a long sleeved layer underneath for the fall and winter months. Although I've found the sweater to be a perfect layer of warmth this winter, I am not in love with the length. I have a runners'/stair-climbers' bum and this sweater is not quite long enough to pull the bottom band completely over my derrier, so I find myself tucking the bottom band under and scrunching the extra fabric around my waist to shorten the length. That said, if Lulu re-released it in pigment blue or another bright, saturated color, I would be first in line!

Grabbed a chai time the last run (late summer/early fall?) I think it snags all by itself just sitting in the closet. The arms are SUPER tight so it is hard to get on. Was thinking of selling it but now that they are re-released, probably couldn't get anything for it :(

Emily said...

I am a major sucker for anything that is long in both the front and back so I'm def going to check out all three of these. The peplum tunic might be fugly but it's worth a try on. Now I just need to figure out when I'm going to go to lulu. I hate going down expecting to see various items I want to try and then finding out they're not in yet. Then the educators say my favorite line "are you signed up for our product notifications?" at which time I try not to roll my eyes and resist saying that we both know if I rely on those, the good stuff will sell out before I even get the email.

Yea!!!!!!!! I wear my chai time pullover ALL THE TIME! Must go get another one NOW!

Re: the ignorant comment about the niqab. My religion is Catholic, but I would never, ever label other women terrorists for wearing their customary religious head scarf. Yes, the majority of these women live in non-democratic countries, opressed by males, but the latter is a very Western view. Few are willing to rebel against customs and religion. If they do, there are repercussions. It is also true that some terrorist dress like women to blend into the crowds and avoid detection. I imagine they don,t wear Lululemon Vinyasa scarves.

1:15 terrorist wearing lululemon vinyasa scarves. Now that will add to all the lulu controversy in the media. LOL

Oh goodness, couldn't even be bothered to read the comments because now people are into ter_orist talk and offending each other over inference and ignorance.

Im Anon 5:06. I should clarify my comment - it wasn't the way she wore the scarf. It was the way lulu did an effect to the camera. They made the camera all scratchy like in a terrorist video. I found lulu to be offensive to anyone who wears their scarf that way or practices those religions. Its like lulu was making fun of those people.
