Giggity. Looks like lululemon is seeking to help out dudes who know the way to a woman’s heart is through chocolate or magic pants. While they can’t help on the chocolate, they *can* help a brother out in making sure the Valentine’s Day gift for his lady will arrive on time if he’s smart enough to order by February 8th.
This means that if you’re in a relationship with a guy who doesn’t refuse to acknowledge the day because of “corporate cliche blah blah blah” and really wants to put a smile on his girl’s face… you’ve got 8 more days to drop hints.
Last week, I got excited about a lot of things. This week, not as much, but let’s work through this together. On a random note, I noticed that now what I would consider regular Wunder Under Pants are now being billed as “low rise”. Not necessary, IMHO.
OH, and I walked by a lululemon today and did not go in. Go me! (I think.)
5 Faves & a Dud – 1/31/17 Upload
Favorite #1: Cadence Crusher Tight ($118) in dark royal
No words, just admiration. I’m really liking this design, and am happy to now see it available in 5 different colors. The color doesn’t really seem all that royal to me, but it’s still… just… nice.
Favorite #2: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew ($78) in deep rouge/black
Beginning to heather swiftlies with black is one of the smartest things that lululemon’s team has done. Deep in the heart of winter, deep rouge is a cozy shade. Deeply.
Favorite #3: Energy Bra ($52) in alberta lake
Three colors into the lineup in the latest Energy Bras is a lulu classic, Alberta Lake. I’ll admit that I had to zip through last week’s post, so if AL actually came out last week, I’M SORRY! Egg on my face. Too gorgeous of a color not to include, no matter what.
Favorite #4: NACHOS! (#homemade) on my plate right now
Long-term business travel means condo with a kitchen, which in turn means you buy what you *think* you’re going to eat for the next few weeks upon moving in. Then, when you only have a few days left and there’s random food still in the fridge… you and your roommate turn it into ground turkey & bacon nachos.
Favorite #5: Wunder Under Hi-Rise *Fullux ($98) in radiate rose alpine white black
Alright alright alright… I’m issuing a “get out of dud jail free” card to these pants, because the contrast in the pattern is a real winner. Just promise me you won’t squat in public while wearing these pants.
The Dud: Dark Chrome
As you can see in both the Everyday Getaway Jacket and the Hotty Hot Short Long, dark chrome does anything but stand out. No ostentatious designs or total oddities this week, seeing that the comments section opened up my eyes to why arm warmers make sense a while back.
Don’t get me wrong, I own a ton of gray things, but there’s a warm brownish twinge in dark chrome that just doesn’t blow my skirt up.
Mental Capacity for the Night is Dwindling
Before I get completely engrossed in this Super Bowl/football/tailgate-themed episode of Chopped…
- Is it me, or is the Kicking Asphalt 1/2 Zip nothing more than extra Hill & Valley Mock Neck Crop Tops with a zipper built in?
- Someone from the Department of Redundancy Department wrote the copy for the Kicking Asphalt Vest‘s product page…
- What in the world is the difference between the Wunder Under 1/2 Tight and a Wunder Under Crop? 2in of fabric? What is in the water in Vancouver this week?
- Because we know that lulu loves to confuse the bananas out of you on laundry day in low lighting by selling super similar colors, on the heels of bordeaux drama’s moving back in, now we’ve got deep rouge.
- Is it me or are things going off the rails a bit… the High Times Pant exists as a 7/8 length alternative to the WUP, and now we are seeing a 7/8 Hi-Rise WUP in addition to the High Times? OY VEY.
- Now I know why the Fresh Tracks Pant went on sale a few weeks back… to make room for the Fresh Tracks Pant II.
- The Move Bra is hopping on the high-neck mesh sports bra bandwagon. I like the front, but the back is a bit too simple for me.
8:52p and I’m ready for bed. What am I, 7? Nope. I’m in my 30’s. Oomf.
Didn’t even think of going near the “add to cart” button this evening. What about everyone else… quiet week?
How long before HTs go to WMTM, do we think?
Ehhh High Times on WMTM are a bit rare unless they’re a pattern with sheerness issues. Still wondering what the 7/8 WUP means for the fate of the High Times, so I could be wrong.
I thought the same thing, but then, there is a nearly full color/size run of the high rise WUP on WMTM so my fingers are crossed HTs go the same way!
I’ve been drooling over the swifty long sleeve shirts!
Every time I convince myself that I *really* don’t need another Swiftly for $78, lulu drops another awesome color. I’m still holding strong after grabbing the black/gray gradient back in December!
I saw on another blog that they are getting rid of the High Times and replacing it with Wunder Under 7/8ths high rise…and the high rise will be 1 inch shorter: http://www.luluaddict.com/2017/01/design-updates-no-more-high-times-and.html
This makes me sad because I love high times way more than WU high rise! Grrr.
The Wunder Under 1/2 Tight and the Wunder Under Crop are very similar… but the 1/2 Tight has some mesh on the sides 🙂
