Pics - Move Me Pant and Short

Move Me Pant

I tried these on today but I don't really care for the feel of the Tencel. I thought it felt kind of stiff and not very stretchy. I don't see why you would choose these over a pair of Still Pants. Does Lululemon make any pants from light luon like the Jesus Pants from last year? Those were light, flowing, and stretchy. The Here I Am Pant was also made from light luon but those had a cuff at the bottom and were like a long harem pant.

Tencel Hot Short

Zoom Knee Short and Zoom Bike Short - On a Bike!

Zoom Bike Short

Zoom: Knee Short

A great group of photos showing the Zoom: Bike Short and the Zoom: Knee Short at use on a bike. I think both shorts look really great, it's just a matter of how much of your leg you want to expose. The Zoom:Bike Shorts are lightly padded but the Knee shorts are not. Both shorts are paired with a Run: Swiftly and you can see how deep the armholes are and how much of your bra is exposed.

Run: With It Jacket - Pretty Fug

Would this jacket look any better if there was a long sleeve run swiftly or the Sun Blocker underneath it? Would it look better in a solid? Why did they put those blousy sleeves on it? How fast is the Seek The Peak jacket and this jacket going to make it into Loot?

As a contrast in functional simplicity, the Stride Vest was available in Loot earlier this week. I hate the color combination (space dye - blech), but I would have loved one in a solid colored neutral like black or coal:

Neoprene Classy Classic Gym Bag
The neoprene is cool looking but in my experience neoprene gets dirty fairly easily and is not that easy to wash off. The beauty of vinyl is that you can wipe it clean.

Pics - Shorts & Zoom Singlets, New Mynah Tank + Shopping Trip Report

 New Mynah Tank in Savage Green

I'm not a fan of the Mynah tank but I wish Lululemon would mix stripes and solids on more tanks. I have solid-colored tank fatigue.

Tracker Tight Crop in Coal/Potion - they look fantastic on this woman

I think the Oakville store is the best at creating coordinating outfits for us to see. Here are a bunch of combos of Run: Zoom Singlets and Speed Shorts.

Someone was wondering what to pair with her black and sidewalk plaid shorts - the silver Swiftly looks nice.

Groovy Run Shorts

Loose Hot Yogi Short

I went to my local store this afternoon. I tried on the new Potion, Angel, and Savage Green Run: Swiftly tanks but I didn't care for any of them. The Potion is more washed-out looking than I thought so I didn't like it at all. I saw the new Run: With It Crops and Zoom Knee Shorts but they didn't have my size so I couldn't try them on. The store did not have any new colors in Run: Energy Sleeveless tanks. I did try on the potion purple short sleeve Energy to see how I liked the color on me. It was nice but it has very visible lines of silver which is a pet peeve of mine. The same goes for the Angel Blue version.  I ended up getting an Angel Blue Run: Zoom Singlet and matching Dance headband. I was also considering the Potion Purple Horizon stripe Zoom and a solid black Zoom but the Angel is a more upbeat, summery color so I went with that. Oh yeah, I also tried the Move Me pant but I don't like the Tencel material. It's kind of stiff feeling. I didn't see much other new stuff. I have to say there was a lot of product on the shelves and racks.

Upload - Nothing From my Wish List - Sniffle

Modern Racer in Ash/ Split Fountain Wave

50 Rep Bra in Potion Purple

One of the highlights of the upload was the 50 Rep bra which I think is a great bra for bustier ladies. The profile is very similar to the Flow Y underneath your tanks, so if the Flow Y doesn't give you enough support I highly recommend this bra. It's pretty snug around the rib cage but doesn't smoosh you down as much as the All Sport bra.

Seek the Peak Shorts in Potion Purple
When I first saw these in a product alert email I was kind of excited but now that I see them on a person, I think it may be too much purple. It would be nice to see them modeled with a coordinating top.

None of my wish list made the upload. I think I'll try to fit a store visit in today and see what they have.
