That snapshot crew is 1982, and not even stylish 1982. I had a 40-something typing teacher in high school that wore a shirt like that with jodhpurs. 20 years before What Not To Wear came along, sadly. I don't know what this sweatshirt is doing at Lulu, truly.
The straps on the bra look a little thicker than the usual free to be wild.M
The snapshot crew was on markdown in my local store in Calgary!
One warning on the Snapshot Crew... there's a major design flaw, and it looks like they are artfully concealing it in all the store photos, and it's much less obvious on the website shots than it is in real life. Basically the pockets are attached on the inside front of the sweatshirt, and they're attached using circular fabric patches. The problem is that those circles are SUPER visible from the outside. And if you put anything in the side pockets, it pulls on the circle, dimpling the front of the sweatshirt. I returned my online order yesterday - so sad because the material was AMAZINGLY soft, I loved it.
I wish there were some reviews on the snapshot crew. I like the looks of it but haven't worn that fabric before.
The Snapshot crews were on sale in every Toronto Lululemon store. As soon as I tried it on, I knew why. Even though I downsized from my usual size 10 to size 8, the neckline was still still sticking away from my neck. That and the crazy long sleeves gave the impression of wearing something at least two sizes bigger, although that fact was tempered somewhat by the super short body. This top has a very, very odd cut, I must say. It's cozy in the inside, and I love the reflective pattern in the front, but even the $59 sale price could not sway me.
Anon 2:06 here again. As soon as I read Shannon B's comment on the Snapshot crew having those odd circular patches showing through the front, I remembered that it was that design failure that clinched my decision for not buying the top. If you put your hands in the pockets, the patches get sucked into the material, creating two deep dimples on the front. Really not a good look. Do not order from online WMTM.
Good to know about the Snapshot Crew. I will take it off my watch list.
