Color Comparison: Spry vs. Kayak

lululemon kayak-ocean color-comparison cool-racerback
A reader asked for a comparison of Spry to Kayak. I don't own any other blues in this color range but past lululemon colors that I think are fairly close to Kayak would be: Ocean and Snorkel.

OT- but since you are all fabric junkies.. Can anyone recommend a brand of baby clothes that are made with nice soft fabrics? I am a first time mom with a two month old that I am trying to figure out how to dress for winter. I'm looking for clothes with nice soft and stretchy fabrics that will keep baby warm without being too bulky to go easily from the house to the car seat to the bjorn, etc. There doesn't seem to be a lot of options out there...

Kayak looks beautiful!! Wrong season for it (IMO) but beautiful and looks opaque and thick :)

I was thinking kayak looked kind of like beach blanket? Am I off my game?

Peek. They have their own store and sell at Nordstrom. Lovely and soft. And they go up to bigger kid sizes as well.

Castleware- organic clothing made in California. Wonderful velour Jammie's!! Winter water factory- organic clothing made in New York I think. Hanna anderssen is another Great brand that makes soft clothing. My go to favorites for my little one.

LLA: I am the reader who asked for the comparison. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! You are THE best. Actually, based on this comparison, I am going to try the Kayak. It's a pretty blue. I think you mentioned it's also nice and thick.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving. I am certainly grateful for all that you do.

Yup, that Salute the Sun tank is the same one as Ivivva's "Sun Sprinter" that came out during the summer. I think that there are several items from Lulu (like the new down pullover which is very similar to an Ivivva one from 2 winters ago) that are copying old Ivivva styles. Kind of lame, really.

@ anon 5:08 pm - you're welcome! I was curious to see how the two compared, too.

@ anon 7:59 pm - Interesting that lulu is bringing over some Ivivva designs. I tend to like a lot of the jackets they come up with.

ANON 5:08 again:

:) to you LLM

It's interesting that Lulu is now "stealing" some from Ivivva when before it was exclusively the reverse.

Not surprisingly, Ivivva and Lululemon have tons of product in common. If you are a short women such as myself (just under 5'3") and you wear size 2-6, you can get some great deals at ivivva. (My TTS in Lulu is 4 and I usually wear a 14 in Ivivva.)

I have quite a few KEEP UR COOL tanks, which are dupes for the CRB. I have 2 of these tanks in prints, but the pattern KUC can be a bit childish and really poly. However, the solids are great. I actually prefer the shorter length and like the modest neckline just fine. I recently bought the Heathered Pinkelicious Keep Ur Cool and found it to be soft and opaque, almost like Rulu.

Another recent purchase of mine is the Feelin' Toasty Wrap, which is priced at $78; its style is somewhat comparable to the $138 Peace of Mind Wrap. I haven't yet taken the tags off, but the FEELIN' TOASTY is a nice sweater. I like the knit pattern and the back is DARLING, though the front is a little drippy on my frame which is making me hesitate. FYI: I sized down to a 12 since it's a loose style.

Speaking of which, because my torso is relatively trim but my legs are thick, I personally find ivivva tights too small. However, my friend, who is slimmer than I, loves the Rhythmic Tights,

Agreed! It's much closer to beach blanket than to spry. The blues I have go: Baroque Blue, Beach Blanket, Kayak, Spry. In terms of dark/cobalt blue to almost neon. That's just my crb's. If I get out all my blues in all items I could get a pretty rockin comparison.

What's the fabric content of the Kayak CRB? I'd blind-ordered the Raspberry Glo last week and marched it straight back to the store when I opened it and it felt like it was made of the same material as those shower exfoliating gloves. It's made of polyester instead of nylon -- boo! Love the color of the Kayak but assuming it might also be polyester scratch-fest!

@ anon 1:54 pm - As soon as I get a piece of Berry Rumble I will compare it to Bumble Berry. I'm curious to see how those two compare, also.
