Earlier today, I was brainstorming how I wanted to start this week’s post off. I landed on 33 days. I was going to start this post by patting myself on the back for not having made any lululemon purchases in 33 days. Look at my self control and I, being fiscally responsible.
Then, this week’s upload happened. Nobody needs a shopping cart that totals $868 but here I am. Decisions must be made.
5 Faves & a Dud: 2/11/20 Edition
Favorite #1: Down For it All Jacket ($198) / Down For it All Vest ($148) in Wild Bluebell
Sometimes, you’ve got to go FULL PRICE when there’s something you love. When I saw this BEAUTIFUL color upload, my jaw dropped. Yes, I already own a DFIA. But I love this color, and snowboard season is not over yet.
Despite the fact that this one will likely get marked down… I’ve got the heart-eyed ski goggles on and if not the jacket, at least a vest must be mine.
Favorite #2: Cool Racerback Shorter *Nulu ($48) in Diamond Dye Pitch Grey Graphit Grey
What’s more remarkable than a 33-day no lulu streak for a lulu blogger is that it’s very likely I snap my 3.5 YEAR “no new CRB” streak since they introduced the CRB II in 2016.
Go figure the whole reason I didn’t give in to the new cut was a slightly shorter length. With the increasing popularity in higher rise tights, I’m finding that some of my beloved OG CRB’s actually have a bit too much fabric overlap for my current outfit preferences. I used to live in Speed Shorts when I was CrossFitting 5x a week, but now I’m more often found in tights.
The Chambray Race Length CRB is sold out in most sizes, so there’s definitely a market for this. I’m giving it a shot.
Favorite #3: Speed Up Short *2.5″ ($58) in Wild Bluebell
So there may or may not be an aesthetic theme emerging with my top 5 picks this week, and it’s a Backstreet Boys album name from 2000: Black & Blue.
No WB in the longer inseam option yet, but I will be keeping my eyes peeled in coming weeks.
Favorite #4: Invigorate Bra ($52) in Incognito Camo Multi Grey
I felt a little guilty putting an Energy Bra into my cart given that I have been wearing a black savasana camo for years. If I at least change it up to a new core style, said guilt fades.
Favorite #5: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve 2.0 ($68) in Black/White/Black
Curious about what the updates are, aside from losing the omega design in front. Despite the fact that it’s far from short sleeve season in my neck of the woods, I love me a good horizontal-striped anything. This one has caught my attention.
The Dud: Full Day Ahead Shirt ($98)
It annoys me to see this shirt still being uploaded and priced at $98. I was over the moon to see lululemon’s attempt at a dressier shirt a few months ago, so I raced to the store to hunt one down. [Fitting Room Photos]
It was such a total bust. The sleeves are too short, and it’s so billowy in the back. I wanted to love it, but I couldn’t. I wasn’t the only one who this design fell short on, they quickly ended up on WMTM as low as $39.
This shirt is like the word “fetch”.
I still haven’t figured out how to grow a money tree, so while I want these items in my closet, it’s going to take an assist from WMTM or a total lapse in judgement to make it happen.

Okay, I’m done now. Back to the BIG DECISION at hand: to sleeves or not to sleeves?
I want a Wild Bluebell Down For it All and I want it now! // Violet Beauregard, probably, if lululemon had a store in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory
