Hi everyone! Did I mean to take a month off? No. Did it happen? Yes. Whoops. Life decided to start looking like 2019 again, and since the last 5FD I’ve managed to go from CT > MA > CT > NY > CT > NV > CA > NV > CT. So that’s been fun… and exhausting. Got some new lululemon though! The Power Thru Tank Top (OMG LOVE) and I gave some of those MicroPillow Tab Run Socks a go because I was desperate. Threw my deep sock thoughts into a TikTok:
5 Faves & a Dud: 7/27/21 Edition
Well I guess it’s time to scan on through the What’s New page, and welp… I chose a weak week to resurface from the abyss. I should know better. The first upload of the month is always the strongest showing, and next week is going to be August 2nd. So yeah. Let’s see how this goes.
Favorite #1: Power Thru Tank Top ($58) in Black
This is my first piece in lululemon’s more rugged fabric. I’m almost inclined to do a bunch of burpees in the dirt just to see what happens. Do I want to see if it will wreck my shirt? Yes. Do I want to actually wreck my new shirt? No. Do I buy a second just for experimental purposes? You tell me.
As far as sizing goes, I went with my tried and true size 8 and it fits perfectly. Currently drooling over Regatta Blue if I end up ordering another.
Favorite #2: Simply Effortless Jacket ($128) in Wheat Yellow
I’m about 92% sure I’d make this look like I *was* Ms. Frizzle’s magic school bus if I were to attempt to rock this jacket. HOWEVER. There has got to be someone out there who will look fabulous in this color, and for her I must highlight it… no bright yellow pun intended.
Favorite #3: Sun Setter High Rise Jogger Full Length ($118) in Red Merlot
Given that the Black ones have sold out in all sizes except 0, lululemon’s got to be doing something right with these. Cue FOMO! I’m home for the next few weeks and I haven’t gotten mail from lululemon in a while…
Favorite #4: LA Front Cut-Out Crop Top ($58) in Dark Red
I don’t quite understand what the cutout in the front is there for, but the model makes this top look so phenomenal, suddenly I’m wondering if I need a red crop top with a front cut out. That’s what you call an A+ in merchandising.
Favorite #5: Speed Up Low-Rise Short 2.5″ ($58) in Symphony Blue
Here for the color. As for the length – honest question. Is anyone out there still buying 2.5″ Speed Ups at the rate we all snatched up the original Speed Shorts? I’m team 4″ FO’ LYFE.
The Dud: Marble Dye Silky French Press
I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH STEEZ TO PULL THIS OFF. IMHO, it’s like a bunch of chocolate chips melted and you somehow managed to roll around in them. I say this because if I know one thing it’s about how to get chocolate all over the place.
What exactly are we doing here?
To Tie Dye For?
Can’t deny that tie dye is having a moment, and who am I, (the one who’s been rocking tie dyed Brooks running shoes for the last two years) to turn my nose up? I don’t necessarily love all of the most recent offerings, but there are several to choose from.
- Key to Balance Tank Top & Align Tank – Diamond Dye Lunar Rock True Navy
- Warm Down Jogger – Earth Dye Clay
- Power Thru High-Rise Crop 23″ & Power Thru High-Rise Tight 25″ – Over Tie Dye Wisteria Purple Graphite Grey
- LA All Yours Pocket T-Shirt Dress – Black White Tie Dye… if you wear Dark Red shorts under this, does it qualify as a LEWK? I can’t do it, but some young’n on TikTok will probably will. Or Colleen Quigley. Anything she wears, I immediately want.
In other news, I think hitting excessive amounts of golf balls has given me a version of shin splints and I start training for the San Diego Rock & Roll Half Marathon in exactly 6 days so if you need me I’ll be on a couch somewhere with an ice pack on. WOOOOOOO it’s so much fun to get old!
