5 Faves & a Dud: Lululemon’s 9/26/17 Upload

NETFLIX, Y U STEAL MY ATTENTION SPAN?! Family Guy and a Jeff Dunham special are creating a complete inability to focus on writing this blog post. Puppets won’t ever stop being hilarious to me. Shoot, now I’m onto watching a live set by STS9 on YouTube from Red Rocks a few weeks ago. I couldn’t focus right now if the future of peanut butter & jelly as we know it depended on it.

I’ve completely lost my marbles. Oh, the latest upload? Yeah, about that.

5 Faves & a Dud: Lululemon’s 9/26/17 Upload

Favorite #1: Define Jacket *Pleat It ($) in black

Hello, moto. It’s amazing how adding a bit of monochromatic paneling and texture can jazz up a design that isn’t exactly the newest kid on the block. Also, Defines have got the cuffs that fold over to keep your hands warm. Even though I can’t imagine chilly temps will ever come around this fall, I know they eventually will, and this feature will be welcomed with hunched shoulders and crossed, shivering arms.

Favorite #2: Fast & Free 7/8 Tight II ($128) in psychic

This should come to absolutely no surprise to any regular readers out there. My current favorite tights in an always favorite color, a deep royal blue. Knowing this would end up on my favorites list is pretty much like you’re… wait for it… psychic.

Favorite #3: Energy Bra *Pleat It ($58) in black

This one reminds me of the the Minimalist Bra (that I’m actually wearing right now, but in neon) that goes both cute and useful with the sweetheart illusion down in front, meanwhile not sacrificing any coverage or function. Going to be tough to talk myself out of this one, even though I have at least 3 Energy Bras in the black family already. But I wear those all the time, and some are starting to remind me that they’re 3+ years old.

I think I might be talking myself *into* purchasing this right now, instead of the opposite.

Favorite #4: Love Tee V ($48) in scarlet

If Goldilocks was looking for a cute outfit for Casual Friday, she’d land on this tee. Why? It’s not too dark, it’s not too neon, it’s just right with skinny jeans and navy blue Converse All-Stars.

If I saw Cady Heron wearing this tee with skinnies and navy blue Converse All-Stars, I would start wearing this tee with skinnies and navy blue Converse All-Stars.

Favorite #5: Shape Up Tank ($48) in black

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a wannabe CRB! So the fabric is a bit different and the two seams along the front aren’t a total win, but this is the closest thing I’ve seen to my discontinued favorite CrossFit & layering piece.

What ultimately did me in on the CRB2 was the shortened length, so I’m interested to see how this one fits me. I’m playing it casual right now, but who are we kidding. It’s a nulu tank and I would wear it around the house every single day and night if I owned this.

The Dud: Miles Ahead Short Sleeve *Camo ($68) in deep camo

If you’re going to do camo, do SAVASANA CAMO. None of this squiggly line stuff, I want to see the real deal back in action. 2014 called, and it wants to say that fatigue green savasana camo nulux needs to happen. Not this.

In Conclusion…

Without getting too wordy, you should probably head on over and check a few other things out on the upload if the following things are your thing. I should say thing again to make it an even number. Nah, I like odd things.

I should be saving up to redo my fugly kitchen counters. But…

Heh.

😀

  1. Great post! One of the funnier ones imo.
    I thought the shape up tank looked like the crb too. I’m surprised more people havent mentioned it. If you try it, let us know how it fits! I
    I’m disappointed the defines are so pricey now or else I’d of snatched up so as of late. And you’re making me want to get on the fast and free train!

  2. I’m loving my rulu define so the pleat version doesn’t have a draw for me, but after seeing a bunch of pictures I ended up grabbing the lacescape aligns (my first since the redesign!) and that scarlet love tee. I sized down in both, not sure if that will be a mistake but that’s what I usually do for aligns and love tees. These scream FALL to me, and I can’t wait for the cold weather (I know you’re with me on that – haha).

  3. I think I’m going to pull the trigger on everlux aeon crops and either fast and free or the speed up tight in the new navy/black print (can’t remember the name and don’t feel like looking it up). I’m going to my store tomorrow after work to try everything on.

    And yep, as a long time reader, I knew the psychic fang and frees were calling your name 🙂

  4. I’d love a try on report of that tank if you have time! I am tall so hopefully it is long enough. I did eventually give in on the CRB2 though. I bought a color I loved, and I found out that I like them better than the original CRB with shorts, but only with shorts. For tights, I stick with the original.
