Today's Shopping Trip





A pretty new Heathered Light Gray Forme Jacket was in my store today. The material is silky soft and looks really nice with black. One thing I really like is that all the zippers match the fabric. I was considering getting the Pow Pink Light Forme but the main zipper was brass while the pockets ones were pink plastic and I didn't care for the look. Though I didn't plan on buying a jacket, I did get this Forme.





Wamo Camo is starting to arrive in the stores. The first piece seems to be this new Restless Tank in Heathered Barely Pink/Wammo Camo Bleached Coral/Barely Pink. I got a close up of the Wammo Camo pattern bra for you.

A new orangey-yellow called Bananarama, which we've seen used as stripes in the Twist and Wrap and new Flow Y, is starting to arrive. The first piece my store had was a scoop neck SS Swiftly. Here it is on the left next to Heathered Creamsicle Pop. This version is heathered. It's a pretty mango color but I found the swiftly a bit see through though I might try it again in the tank version. I think I would like a Cool Racerback in the color.



Taken with a flash

Website close up of "heathered" Vintage Pink

I picked up the new Heathered Vintage Pink Swiftly tank. I'm 99.999% sure the website has the wrong photo under the "Heathered" Vintage pink Swiftly Tank. You can't see any white streaks in any of the website photos yet they are plainly visible in my home photos.

Going clockwise from left: Spry, Green Bean, Bali Breeze, Heathered Blue Tropic
Heathered Blue Tropic Swiftly SS and a Surge cap.

I also got the Heathered Tropics Scoop Neck Swiftly SS today. I tried on the LS version which is Tonka Stripe. Both are nicely thick and super soft. I was sorely tempted to get the LS version, too, but it's 94 outside today and I couldn't think about getting a top I won't get much use out of for the next several months. I might revisit that decision since it was super pretty. I don't have any Teal Zeal, Surge, Oasis, or Lagoon clothes to compare to. Though, my Surge cap looks like a pretty close match.

I also tried on the Muscle Tank but the armholes popped out weirdly on me so that was an easy pass. I also tried on the Black Club shorts and really liked them. They have Secret Garden details on them:

Secret Garden Pocket Lining on the Black Short
I thought the fit on the Black was a snug TTS and I wouldn't have minded going up a size in them. They have a nice amount of stretch and would work very well for golf. I'd love to see a pant version in these. A review on line that says the Cashew version fit a bit looser so I'll have to try them. I have some Callaway shorts I use for golfing, though I've used Still Pants and shorts in a pinch on not-so-strict courses, but I bought the Callaway years ago and they are super high waisted with a very mom-jeans look. I'd love to replace them with lulu ones.

Wammo camo shirt is it really sheer and support wise like a energy or less support?! Thanks :)

I seem to remember the Restless tank being less supportive than an Energy Tank. I believe the Barely Pink silverescent will be on the sheerer side.

So, product review:
The flowery skort arrived and as predicted it is going back. Omg, is it ever unflattering and makes me 10' times big. Horrible.....
The club dress is going back as well. I got the blue version, but still not forgiving at all, wrinkly, and looks like a $15 dress. Fits like that too.
The high waisted camo are nice. Made out of denim luon and slimming on the waist. Since Canada online never got a chance to order WUP denim black camo ( that's when website was just being tested after it was broken), I might keep them. After all- I do have to admit that I like all the camo: green is my fav, then pink or turquise ( one can dream, right?), then only black...

It's Wamo Camo :)

Stores received the Heathered Vintage Pink Swiftly Racerback last month and the version did not have white in it (just like the photo online). If the Heathered Vintage Pink Swiftly Racerback was not just uploaded this week I bet it is the older version without white.

That gray forme is sharp! I bet it's beautiful on.

@ anon 3:00 pm - Thanks! I knew it couldn't be "Whamo" since I believe that's a trademarked name.

LLA, thanks for the awesome pics!! Did you get your burlap inspires yet? If so, thought? Thanks!

I tried on the muscle tank today, and it runs big. It also looked terrible on me--reminded me of junior high gym class when we had to wear pinneys to differentiate between 2 different teams. Bleh!

LuluAddict said...

OMG Anon 4:54 pm - a pinney is the perfect description.

at my store when vintage pink first came out it was heathered even though the pics like lla said clearly shows no white when i asked about it they looked at me like i had two heads... did not compute, i bought it anyways since i knew that was it for that color.... wish they had a crb solid in that color but no dice!!! I love that color!!

I tried on the burlap inspires today (Calgary) and they were nothing special. Too much polyester.

Love the new Forme color but not sure I can justify another neutral. Just got today the Antidote Forme I've been debating for a month. Love the fun color & it will actually go with a lot but I agree about the zipper (though for me not enough to return it).

My Canadian stores did get the Blue tropics shorts a and LS swiftly but that's it. No SS swiftlies, no CRBS, no in the flows in Blue tropics. How disappointing.
I did score the Solo bra which I like. Decent coverage, comfortable fit. Being in between sizes measurement-wise, oddly I took the black in my smaller size and the gray in the size up.

Just wondering, where is the size dot on a forme with cuffins? Cannot for the life of me remember what size I bought before...

LuluAddict said...

@ anon 8:20 pm - check the left zipper pocket. That is the usual spot for jackets.

Sam said...

Do you think the blue tropics swiftly will be in the next upload monday?
