Gorgeous model, but goodness this dress looks like a big potato sack! This is Vancouver, correct? It looks so beautiful.
You don't have to wear a cape to be a Super Hero. Just say in'...
that dress is absolutely hideous!
WHY IS "TO CLASS TEE" $68?!?!?!?!
My Black Go Lightly has mesh on top, and I don't see any on this one, or am I just missing it?
@ anon 7:43 am - The black Go Lightly on the US website has a mesh top but the black one on the Canadian side of the website has a solid top.
@ anon 9:01 PM - it's Ottawa, Ontario by the Rideau Canal. it is beautiful indeed, come visit :)and for reference, this ed is like 5foot 3 inches, and she is gorgeous for real!thanks for this blog LLA!
I stopped by my local store to return the inkwell blissed out wrap that arrived Thursday...I'm 5'2/115 and ordered the 4, and while it was a nice substantial piece, there was just so much fabric that it overwhelmed my frame.Tried on the bruised berry Forme, and the only thing that kept me from buying it was the fact that I'm in California and it's 90 degrees out. It was gorgeous though, and fit nicely. I may reconsider if it uploads Monday.Tried on the BB speeds in a 4 and the new run times in cadet/aquamarine...loved the color of the speeds but I can't get past the fact that they seem so short on me. I'm fit but I'm 40 and feel more comfortable in groovy runs, so I liked the run times. I'm hoping they come out in bruised berry in that style.Finally, my store had all the pace crops marked down. I bought the wee stripe black pace crops when they first came out...could've saved $22 if I'd waited. That's where Lulu gets you...you think something is going to sell out so you jump on it, then it goes on sale and a little patience could've saved you some money. Oh well.
I should add that being 40+ doesn't mean you can't wear speed shorts...they just are too short for me. My legs when I was younger, maybe, but not now. I work hard on them but despite being pretty lean, that's where I store fat. So before a riot breaks out, age has nothing to do with it, only for my 40-year-old legs lol.
@ 2:13/4:31, thanks for the "disclaimer" that 40+ can still wear speed shorts. I do. I'm very fit and they're not too short for me. If there were issues, I wouldn't. Butt and thighs are also my areas for weight gain. I fully agree that no matter how hard you work, you can still have issues as you age (and at any age, for that matter). People rarely guess my age and the guesses are at least 10 years younger (I'm 42). That's always a boost, but for me it's always about how I feel--which is great--and I'm happy to be able to kicka&& in my workouts. I've always been active and my goal at this point is to stay strong all the way, to never be feeble or frail. You can't control everything but I intend to keep running and practising yoga for as long as I can; both make me feel so good.
Lol, I'm turning 50 this year and still wearing Speed shorts! I am short though, and have stumps for legs. I'm pretty self-aware, so I think I'll know when to stop wearing them. If I don't, I have some brutally honest friends who will definitely let me know! (Not to mention a mother who would definitely harangue me if she thought they were indecent or not age appropriate). That will be a sad, sad day though because I have 14 pairs of them as well as two pairs of Run A Marathon shorts and a boatload of skirts (some that are the same length as Speeds). Til then, I will keep wearing them because they are first of all so comfortable, secondly functional and thirdly so ding dang cute! Besides, I'm not the one who has to look at me running in them, lol! I really do think a lot of Lulu stuff is timeless and ageless. Speed shorts being one of those classic things.
I work in a plastic surgery industry and let me tell you- whether or not you dare speeds depends on your personality more than anything! There are skinny young ladies that are so self- conscious about body issues and yet there are healthy curvy more mature ladies that have enough confidence to wear anything they want to- whether it is ultra conservative style or borderline vulgar. I never judge. If you feel comfortable - just do it!
I'm 47 and rocking my speed shorts. Love them. So comfy for running and squat class. I personally don't care what others think. I'm out running 9 miles and they're sitting on the couch so their opinion doesn't matter to me ;)
To clarify, my thighs are the area of my body that respond slowest to weight training, and I guess it's my own self-consciousness that keeps me from wearing speeds. I think they're adorable and have friends 50+ who look amazing in them. I probably see my "flaws" more than anyone else, and of course it shouldn't matter, but it's that self-consciousness that makes me feel better in crops or longer Lulu shorts like the trackers or groovy runs.I definitely think you should wear what you feel good in, regardless of age. :)
I loved that beach bag in the store...but it is just that, a beach bag...and I can't justify $90 for it. Especially when my lands end beach bag (albeit not as hip) was $15 and holds everything and held up like a champ!
I just tried on the STS dress and it's cuter than photographs but I simply could not get over the billow in the back. Maybe a tall and willowy figure will be able to take up the slack? It also runs large. I'm an 8 in lulu tops and I was comfortably in a size 4.
@ anon 9:57 pm - I feel the same way. I'll cross my fingers for a markdown on it.
