OT - Zobha Wide Leg Pant Try On Review

I recently bought Zobha Lounge pants for $30.99 during their 70% off sale and love them. The fit reminds me a lot of organic grooves - tight until your knee and then looser and a flare at the ankle. The material is light and stretchy and doesn't bag or pill. There are offset seams down the front and back of your leg which add visual interest. I really love them. Because I liked the material in the Lounge pant so much I thought I would try the Zobha Wide Leg pants thinking they might be like a cotton version of my beloved Lululemon Still pants and paid full price for them.
I was really disappointed. The material is much thicker, stiffer, and less stretchy than in the Lounge pant and the hems are unfinished at the bottom. It's hard to see in the above photo but there are seams along the hip that go into a point on the side of the hip. I found them really noticeable, meaning I could feel them, and added visual width to my rear. In the Still pants the wide leg starts from the rear down but these started farther down the thigh and just seemed to add visual bulk. I am returning them for another pair of Lounge pants.

The colorful sneakers the woman is wearing in the Dog Whisperer Jacket post are Nike Air Max 2009 Stealth. She was kind enough to write in and let us know - thanks!

Lululemon - Marathon Tested

My sister ran her first marathon today in Portland. Yesterday she stopped at the new Lululemon Bridgeport Village store to pick up some clothes for the marathon. She bought a lolo Swiftly tee, a lilac Swiftly long sleeve, a pair of Inspire crops, and a pair of Crosstrain crops - all things she had never tried before but I guess the staff talked her into them. I have been telling her for ages to try the Swiftlys and luxtreme crops. For the summer, her favorite running outfit is a Power Y and Groove shorts. Last fall she bought two Spirit pullovers which she loves. She is a five foot nothing size four with athletic thighs and she has run her chest off so support is not an issue for her. For today's marathon she wore her new long sleeve Lilac Swiftly, a lavender Power Y, and her new Crosstrain crops. She really loved the Crosstrain crops and didn't have any problems with them slipping down. In face she sounded very pleased with the performance of all her Lululemon clothes. As soon as she sends me photos I will post. It sounded like a rather miserable run - it rained the whole time.
