Lastest Upload - Nothing Too Exciting

Lagoon Space Dye Power Y
The latest upload to Lululemon's website was a yawner for me. Nothing made me want to place an order.
Drishti Bra
The new Drishti Bra has a racerback but I can't imagine the front pleats and seaming would sit smoothly under the Cool Racerback. I'll have to try it on to see how comfortable it is, but from looks alone I'm not burning to buy it.

Cool Racerback in Sidewalk
I really like the new color Sidewalk - so calming, sophisticated and understated- but I know it will show perspiration like nobody's business. I would love an Energizer Pullover in this color. I also wouldn't mind seeing a Deep V in this color with monochromatic accents like black or dark gray - no neon!
Modern Racerback in Pima
The Modern Racerback is pretty loose fitting through the abdomen and I don't care for the proportions as much as the Cool Racerback. I'm sure it's really soft and comfortable since it's made of Pima Cotton. I wouldn't mind a tank version of it so I could wear a normal bra. Why is it $3 more than the Cool Racerback which is made of a technical fabric? For the money, I'd probably stick with the Cool Racerbacks.

No Rain No Gain Jacket
I like the clean simple lines of the front of the No Rain No Gain jacket but I'll have to try it on to see how the pleats in the back look on me.  Also, it's $148 which seems a bit steep.

My latest eBay Lululemon purchase:
Snorkel Blue with Gingham Tri Y
I got a smokin' deal on a NWT Tri Y. I really love the Tri-Y for spin and working out on hotter days. They offer good support for larger chests and are very cool to wear because of the open upper back. I also love the iPod pocket. I love any top with an iPod pocket. I think I am going to try to get a few more. There was a very pretty dark puple one called Bruise that I've never seen pop up on eBay. I wish Lululemon would bring this design back.
No new technical tank designs today. Boo. There was a new Heathered Fruity Tootie Pow Pink Deep V uploaded but I swear they already offered that color last year. I'm not a heathered anything fan in luon, though. I also read that this was one of the colors that people have had run on them. There was also a Senorita Pink uploaded in the Sunrise Tank. I've tried the Sunrise on several times and just can't get enthused about that top at full price. All in all a dissapointing upload.

I have that Snorkel Blue with Gingham Tri Y! I have the matching groove shorts -- such a cute spinning outfit. That was my first shirt purchase from Lulu :)

I bought the Run Track Tech SS and Gather V based on your review a few days earlier. Love both of them. The Track Tech is very comfy and lightweight. The cut is really flattering too. Ordered them before the price went up. What a sweet deal. Thanks and like your blog very much.

@ Betty - So glad you like the Track Tech and Gather V - they were awesome deals. I love the Gather V - I have two. I wouldn't mind if they brought it back this summer.

i think the rain jacket wouldn't be as bad if it came in a nice spring colour, like aqua or a soft green, or even a cute plaid.

i love your blog, you obviously like the clothes and the brand but speak your mind regarding the quality/stock issues :)

I think as consumers who are being asked to pay $98 for a pair of yoga pants and $148 for running jackets we're allowed to expect a superior product, both in quality and style. Lululemon doesn't have to respond to their customer's issues but then we don't have to continue to buy their product either. It's a two way street.

I do love their stuff, but I am dying for some new tanks. ;-)

I am not liking the No Rain No Gain jacket from the pictures...I think it is also important to point out that this rain jacket does not claim to be water proof (which I expect from a RAIN jacket) but only water resistant.

No Rain No Gain looks like a total dud to me. Could it be any more "blah?"

As for the most recent upload, I was happy to see the org wunder unders in bold blue. I prefer my wunders in luon as the "hold you in" better but I have one org pair in heathered lolo and they are super comfy and it will be nice to have a bold blue bottom to go with the couple bold blue tops I have.

I bought the sidewalk racerback today, such a sophiticated colour.. love it. Would like a solid scoop neck in this as well!
