I will want to own those Bordeaux Drama Double Diamond WU pants.
I've had my eye on the Get it On Blouse ever since it came out and now that it is more reasonably priced want to jump on it. Any advice from ladies who have it? I'm 5'4", 120lbs and a 32B. I'm a crossfitter and my upper back shoulder area seems to be growing exponentially and while I used to be a consistent 4 I recently bought my first size 6 CRB and it fits great and bought the mudra sweatshirt in a 4 and it's a bit tight in the shoulders/sleeves so probably could have gone with a 6. I also tried on the rollin with my omies tank last week and needed a 6. So I'm leaning towards a 6 in the blouse too. Input welcome!
I'll be curious to see how rugged blue compares to limitless blue. They look very similar.
FYI Kit & Ace store opens in Gastown in Vancouver on Thursday. You can check it out when you're there for Sea Wheeze.http://www.theprovince.com.3s3s.org/Lululemon+founder+wife+open+luxury+Gastown+clothing+shop+featuring+technical+cashmere/10077152/story.htmlAnd other yoga or LLL related stories on the link's page.
Anon 6:39, I'm 5'2, 115#, 32D, I got a 6 in the get it on blouse - fits well in the chest and shoulders, a little wider than it ideally could be in the waist. I still like it, but I like blouses flowy.
@ anon 8:05 pm - thanks for reminding me about them!
Anon at 6:39, go with a 6
I sometimes feel like shopping the lulu website requires particular stealth and couter-intelligence to suceed at the scarcity model game! Got up super early to finish up some work for a project deadline, and while having a tea-break decided to rexamine the Savasana wrap photos of this week to confirm my sadness at missing out. :) Did a search on the lulu site just to see if the photos would come up (it did not show up in the what's new or regular jacket sections so I assumed sold out). But lo and behold when I clicked on the search result icon, the wrap did come up and showed the black and dune in several sizes. Must be cancelled orders or something. I ordered (and quickly after all disappeared again so presumably others did the same). Anyway just a heads up to check a couple of days after for cancelled orders and actually search for the item, dont rely on the display on the main site. Maybe you all know this already! but it was news to me.
OT - but has anyone seen how much the wanderlust clothing is already selling for on ebay? It's crazy! Hey - lulu - I have an idea. How about you make lovely designs and cool prints for summer for your every day clientele rather than just limiting it to a few items at a festival that is only a sliver of your base - then you could be making that money yourself rather than the people snapping up multiple pairs and making a stupid profit in a matter of days, and on top of that, people will be drawn again into buying more things. Good idea no?
Do you know if the diamond dot wunder unders will be on upload?
Does anyone know if stores will be getting savasana wraps? Or maybe there will be more online? This whole thing of hunting for some lulu items is getting ridiculous.
I tried on the Bordeaux diamond WUP today and they are one of the worst pants lulu has put out lately. Incredibly see-through. The fabric is thin and not compressive at all. In my regular size when I stood up straight there was extra bunching fabric in my butt, so they were not too small or tight at all. If anything too big. Yet even with the slightest bend, bamm, all is on display. The problem is the diamonds are constructed pretty much just like the mesh on other pants like inspire knees. So obviously when you stretch the diamonds the tiniest bit they are transparent. What a huge disappointment.
I tried the Bordeaux Drama Double Diamond WU pants on today and they are sheer. I usually don't have a problem with sheerness and haven't run into it before. I turned around to look in the mirror and couldn't figure out what was on my backside. It was the tag showing through! Really? I showed one of the eds and she even went wow. Yep. They stayed at the store. Such a shame too. They are really great. You would think someone could hold the fabric up and look through it to see if it will be suitable for pants. They ran a little big so I sized down and that was even worse. Went back up a size and still a no go. I also tried the in the flows on as well. They were really nice. Not sheer on me. I just don't like the fit of them on me as well as the WU's.
Same here with the bordeaux drama WUP. My store had pulled them from the shelves. They grabbed some from the back to let me try on only because I asked about them, and basically said "buyer beware!!!" Obviously I didn't buy them, but they are really pretty, except...sheer. So sad!
@ anon 2:13 pm - So the stores are pulling these because they're sheer?
Thanks for the reports on the bordeaux drama diamond dot WU's. Boo they are sheer. Guess I won't want them anymore. Hopefully they'll come out with a solid BD WU.
I'm 2:13 - they said they made a decision individual to their store to not put them out because they felt that there was a quality issue. They speculated that the pants were supposed to be lined, but that it was missed somehow. When you stretch the diamond pattern out, it looks like mesh--their words.
I don't know I tried on these Bordeaux pants in store today and thought they were fine. I could see a line from my underwear when I leaned over but couldn't see the actual undies which were black. They were gorgeous and the last pair and I'm happy with them.
