Almost Pear and Purple Fog Together

I wouldn't have thought of this paring, though I don't know why since it's used in the Triplet Twin stripe items,  but I really like it - Almost Pear 105F Singlet and the Purple Fog Wunder Under crops.

weeks of unjustly raised prices and no WMTM. can't afford to be an addict anymore!

Seriously, what a lame WMTM this week. But I guess it's just supply and demand, no? If everything is selling well, then there is no incentive for them to clear their inventory.

They may also be pursuing the strategy of letting inventories build prior to the holiday season. It's a gamble as it would reduce their working capital in the short term, but they could profit in the long term by selling more items at retail price.

Not smart IMO, especially since some items are just duds, and no one will buy them at full retail, not even frantic husbands trying to buy last minute Christmas gifts.

Anon 7:34 I was just thinking the same thing!

Yes was there no WMTM upload this week? What's up with that?

What happened to WMTM? Did I miss it?

@ anon 8:46 am - you might be onto something, though there were plenty of items on my local stores sales rack yesterday.

I think people mentioned they saw like two items added to WMTM but they went quickly. I never saw anything but was checking it sporadically throughout the day.

Purple fog also weirdly enough looks great with Bordeaux Drama.

Regarding markdowns, a store I went into last week already had the Here to There dress in black marked down. Seemed odd for an item that was so "hot" and coveted, just shows how overpriced it was.

I've noticed, several times today, that WMTM will have many more products that are all sold out. This has happened before WMTM uploads before, but it looks like there will be nothing more this week. BOO!

\rant As far as the price increase goes...those greedy hippies! CLEARLY the company isn't being run by first rate MBAs, or even by anyone to take an econ 101 class. (Disclaimer, I am a shareholder and frustrated.) From the business side, I get that LLL can charge a higher price when their product is otherwise selling out. That's just a supply and demand thing. (Monopolists always restrict output to increase profits.) However the recent performance of the company, with all the misses and near misses in designs, shows that they are facing truly unstable demand, and that's usually the case when a company produces "hot items". In the case of unstable demand, companies ought to charge a lower price rather than a higher price for fear of losing the loyal (fanatical) customers like us (the ones who stalk the site online and blog about our awesome workout clothes). The current business plan, if there even is one, is very short sighted and naive. Why is LLL so hell bent on self destructing? They're they clear market leaders on performance styles and fabrics, as well as color and cut trends. /endrant

My local store's sales rack was great, so I'm surprised that there wasn't a WMTM this week. I scored a blossom stripe pleat to street skirt. It was mislabeled an 8, but the size dot was a 6. I also picked up a pair of surge shorts for my hubby. Both pieces were $44 each. I was so happy because I refused to pay the regular price for the pleat to street skirt, but it is really cute!

the lulu at union square NYC had a very small rack of sale items and not very many sizes.

The last few WMTM uploads have had a ton of ton of items on clearance IMO. I think that Lulu was trying to clear spring/summer out and new colors/prints that weren't selling to make room for what is to come.

Also, I am loving the purple fog reversible WUC. I hope that we get them in our next US upload! I haven't been stoked on the WUC colors in a while and just got over my heartbreak of having to return my BB WUC due to sheerness.

I would totally pair them with almost pear as yellow and purple are complementary colors.

I got the Purple Fog Wunder Under crops ($82 - reversible by the way) and the Noir Dress ($69 - discounted from $108) today. I'm now waiting for Here and There dresses to be discounted (my store still have bunch of them).

I didn't notice any WMTM. Surely they must have enough items that are fit for WMTM! As long as it it is not in WMTM, we can return the items and most of us won't pay full price for poor design and or quality. Not sure what they are thinking....

The plush petal WUP look fabulous close up, especially with the hot pink - but I'm not quite liking them at a distance...just seem kinda meh.

If they do an on-line outlet store again it would not surprise me if they are holding on to certain items.

They do seem to be clearing the duds to wmtm. Although I checked Canada the yesterday and there were the light grey heathered WU crops. A really good item imo, but they show sweat (on me anyway) so I don't buy that light of colour. I know they work for others though so I guess time of checking, happy people would have scored them.

As for sale racks, in Toronto there has been some decent choice of shorts, crops, tanks, flow Y, FTB, and TT tamer bras. I could have bought a couple of these items, they were even decent colours and patterns, but nothing was a must have. I did buy some full priced items, the Race Your Pace LS and 1/2 zip, so obviously the joke is on me as to what I spent. I'm not sure if I'm keeping both shirts yet.

Does anyone know if/when the plush petal wunder unders will hit US stores?
