Store Trip/Try On Report - Live Simply Tee, Heart Tank, and Sales

I tried on the Live Simply tee today and liked it a lot. Of the three new colors, I liked the heathered wish blue the best. I thought the material was the perfect weight, not as thick as the modern tee but not as thin as the burnout tees. The fit was more curve hugging than the modern. I thought the fit in the wish blue was true to size and a little on the loose side. I liked the tee but for $48 I'd rather get a technical top.

I tried on the Heart Tank in plum and really liked it. This tank only goes to a 10 so it was a size down from my normal size and it fit just a bit snug on me so it might run a little on the large side. I thought the straps were super comfortable and supportive. The girls were not spilling out nor exposing too much cleavage. I would say this top is good for bustier ladies who require moderate support. This fit is curve hugging and flattering. The back is a classic scoop and very cute. All in all, this is a nice tank.

My store did not have the new Cuddle Up jackets but I did end up getting a Plum Scuba hoodie. I am psyched that the Scuba has such a flattering fit and corrects all my dislikes of the Remix.  I went to the Irvine store today and they had a few goodies on sale (thanks, Michelle Q!). I ended up getting an Angle Blue Swiftly tee for $19 (I've never gotten one that cheap before). They had a couple of swiftly tees in Alarming for that price in a 10 and 12. They also had a few Alarming Swiftly tanks in the upper sizes. They also had the Citron and Gray Run Reflection vest for $19 and I got one of those, too. They had that in a few sizes. They had some of the Modern Crewnecks for $19 but only the ugly two-tone ones. They had a few pairs of technithongs for $9. They had a few Wear With Alls for $44 and Inspire jackets for $79 (I think). They had a pair of Lolo Sage Twist pants for $49. They had some Revitalize Tech Short Sleeve shirts and Run Recharge tanks for $19. They also had Static Charcoal Still pants for $39. All in all, it was one of the better markdown racks I've seen in awhile. I went to the Newport Store hoping for more deals but they hardly had any markdowns.

Try On Report - Scuba LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know I'm late to the Scuba love party but in my defense they just arrived in Southern California a little over a week ago. I went to my local stores today with the intent of only checking out the sale racks and newest stuff but I ended up going home with a Plum Scuba.  I am not much of a hoodie person and never liked the Remix even though I though some of the prints and colors were very cute. However, the Scuba corrects all my dislikes about the Remix - it's longer, it's much more fitted, and the material seems less stiff but still thick enough to be warm. I really like that the sides and undersides of the arms are ribbed allowing some give so that the jacket moves with you.  The Remix was so stiff it was like wearing a box and not very comfortable.  The Remix used to hit me right at my hip bones but the Scuba comes down to about my crotch (I'm 5'5"). The Scuba is much more curve hugging than the Remix and a very flattering fit, particularly from the back. My local store had the Scuba in Wish, Black, and Plum. I am hooked now and want to get more. I plan to wear it to watch my kid's soccer and baseball games.
