New items on the website!

Small upload tonight. Only a couple of things are tempting me: 

 The Stay on Course Pullover in the Silver Spoon stripe. I really want to try this on first.

The Apres Run Anorak. I know this is at my local store.

The Flash Energy bra was uploaded tonight but no Wild Lime Energy. That is the I would really like.

Did you all order anything? I am off to the stores tomorrow to see the new Camo print tops.

Photos: Apres Run Anorak and More Camo

I really like the look of the Apres Run Anorak. Amazingly enough my local stores got this. I am hoping to try it on tomorrow. I don't get why we get this and not the Stay on Course Pullovers.

This bottom photo concerns me a little. The camo CRBs that were out last summer were super thin. The fact that I can see the lulu symbols on this woman's bra and crops through the tank make me think this might be thin, too. However, several people have reported that this CRB is a thick polyestery feeling one so I'm not sure what to believe. I am planning to try these on tomorrow.

Store Trip Report, Apres Run Anorak, and Photos of the Latest

I went to the store this morning hoping to see the new Camo tanks but was disappointed. However, I did pick up a new Bang Buster headband. I thought I'd compare it to one of my Mesh Headwraps for you. The Bang Busters are out in Pig Pink, Black, and White. They are $14. It's 5.25" wide. The Mesh Headwrap on the right is 4.3", though those ranged in width sometimes by a good half inch or more. The interior of the Bang Buster is lined with circle mesh. (The Mesh Headwraps were lined with Power Mesh.) The Bang Buster does feel a big snugger on my head, though I think it's too wide for me. That won't stop me from getting more if if comes out in some bright colors or prints. All in all, it's a good replacement for the Mesh Headwrap. I really like that the logo is no longer in the middle of my forehead like some cultist and it's been relocated discretely to the side.

I tried on the Silver Spoon stripe CRB and really liked it. It has a very cool, summery look to it. I didn't get it yet because I am holding out to see if I like the Black Camo CRB. I was hoping to see the Silver Stripe Lively Tee but the store I went to didn't have it.

I ended up buying another Ta Ta Tamer in Rocksteady that was in markdown for $34.  I tried wearing my TTT running the other day and really liked it. It turns out that my new Garmin Heart Rate Monitor strap has to sit fairly high on my chest and people told me to tuck it under my bra. I have been running in underwire sports bras but they become uncomfortable with the underwire riding on top of the HRM strap. Anyway, I decided I needed another TTT so I was happy to pick one up for such a good price. I have a lot of blue, purple, and black tanks and tops so Rocksteady is a good color for me.

The Apres Run Anorak is now out. I like it. I'm sure it won't come to Southern California stores but it's cute.

I think this is the Black Camo in the Cool Racerback. In fact, all the product alerts I've seen have listed only Black Camo for the CRB so I'm not sure if it will also come in the Wren version. I would think so, though.

This is a great photo where you can see the color differences between the two versions of the camo. The Arise bra in the middle is the Wren Camo and the CRB on the right is the black camo. I would hope these will be uploaded tomorrow but I would really prefer to try these on before ordering.

Camo No Limit Tank with Matching Boogie Shorts

OMG, how cute is this whole outfit? It's a Camo No Limit tank with Camo Boogie shorts. Love!

Photos of Black Retro Camo

Here are the web model shots of Black Retro Camo. I went to the Irvine store this morning to see if they had the camo out yet but no luck.

NEW! Camo Print Cool Racerback, Arise Bra, Boogie Shorts, and No Limit Tank

Wren Retro Camo
Photos of the new Wren Retro Camo print in the No Limit Tank and Cool Racerback. There is also supposed to be a black version of the camo, too, but no photos have popped up yet. Some of these photos are from the Carlsbad store. I wonder if my local store has them in yet.

Black Retro Camo
The Arise bra comes in the camo print, too. This is the Wren camo. I wonder if we'll see an Energy bra in this print. That would be fun. Update - The Arise bra is in the Black Retro Camo.

New Boogie shorts in camo print. I bet a lot of boot camp instructors are excited to see this.
