Yep. The Kanto long sleeve definitely reminds me of a onesie. I did try on the Kanto jacket and it is lovely. Warm, stylish and light. (I am a sucker for Rulu) Still trying to justify the cost in my mind but I might break down and get it.
I saw the Kanto LS in store and they are all pretty underwhelming and not worth it, not sure if I would even buy on md. I don't get why they bothered to make a Kanto Jacket and Vest, why did they not make the jacket convertible into a vest? Neither one is for me, just saying, this is the type of option people would be after.
I purchased the both the Regal Plum and the Sapphire Blue Kanto Catch Me Long Sleeve Tops this weekend - love them so much! The store I went to didn't have any of the White Herringbone ones left in my size but I found one at my second closest store today - so happy now! All 3 are gorgeous - love them! I found that they fit me best in my CRB size 2. In case this can help anyone - I can wear either a 2 or a 4, some of my tops/jackets are a 4 (32DD/E, small frame upper body, 24"waist, 37-38 bum). Fits like the first photo above.
Haha! "Onesie" neck style doesn't bother me a bit, I actually like it. I got 2 LS in Herringbone and UV, both TTS to wear casually. I also picked up Kanto Jacket in black. It is a bit tight in chest so I had to size up
Is the Bhakti jacket the one in cranberry or is it a different red? The picture looks brighter than the cranberry pants I tried on in the store.
I'm pretty sure it's cranberry. It comes up differently in different light conditions.
I tried the regal plum Kanto and liked it but it had weird coloring/wrinkling to it. I noticed it on all of them. I was at another lulu and noticed the issue at their store too. Looks like they might be wrinkled but could be some weird dying on the fabric. Even when tried on and stretched, marking is noticeable
I love that bag!! Is it wrong that I want it to take my kids' stuff to and from swim lessons, even though swim lessons only go for another 4 weeks?? Of course we'll go swimming after that, so I will use it then, and, and... of course that is such a nice bag I would never want to take it to the public pool, but that's still my justification. I tried on the Kanto LS and it was just OK, but the jacket was amazing. Felt so nice, looked so nice! I really want it, but like the above commenter, I need to justify the price. The picture of the Bhakti jacket (the cleavage one) looks like it could start to stretch and sag and look unflattering. I tried it on and liked it zipped up all the way, but there was a strange seam pucker on one side of the chest area that was odd and once I noticed it, it bugged me. But that's because I must have known I needed to save my money for the over priced public swimming pool bag...
Yeah i like cranberry but don't love it! Wish for a new red.... cardinal red or a deep true non blue red not orange either a nice deep cardinal red, they do such a color for mens wear everywhere..... bugs me its like they've asigned a "for men" only attached to this color, almost never see it in womens wear we always get pink reds...... i'm olive complected too so pink reds don't look so good on moi!!!!! doubt they will give me the red i so desire either not holding my breath thats for sure!!!
Anon 6:37 AM - I absolutely love Cranberry! However, I also really like Currant and would love to see this one back again and used for lots of different items. I think it would be the type of red you're looking for, I'd say it's a cardinal red and it's really gorgeous! ...not sure why Lulu doesn't use this colour more often... it kind of seems like the more they know we want something, the more they don't want to give it to us... (E cups TaTa Tamers comes to mind here too)
Anon 4:25 AM - I agree, that bag is gorgeous - I've had my eye on it for a while but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Do you think the Bhakti would stretch out? I really hope not - I purchased the Cranberry one in a size 4 because there weren't any 2's available online in Canada - the 4 fits ok but a 2 might have been more ideal for me, especially if this jacket tends to stretch out. Fingers crossed it won't stretch out on me!
Anon Sept 21 4:59 PM - I really like that the jacket and vest are two separate items and not a 2 in 1 style. I think if it were a 2 in 1 that the shoulder attachment area would be annoying, plus I just like that they're two separate individual pieces anyway.
lulu just keeps recycling their colors, nothing new in quite a while, and I've been following this site and the lulu site for at least 5 years.M
@M - I wish they'd recycle Lolo Purple, Senorita Pink, and Wish Blue. They keep recycling lame-o colors like Sea Mist. It's a pale yellowish green. I don't get it.
LuluAddict - I agree, I wish they'd recycle some of their older colours. Love the 3 you mentioned, and own items in all 3 of them! I also really love Tutti Frutti, Savage Green, and Angel Blue off the top of my head - I'm sure if I gave it more thought there would be many more that I'd love to see back again. Right now I'm absolutely loving Angel Wing(such a gorgeous off white/cream shade) and Cranberry - love both and have purchased many new items in these two colours. Would love to see a nice teal in a number of items too.
Bhakti yoga jacket on WMTM today, it is tempting me but $89 is still high. Do people think it fits TTS?
