Namaste Cover Up = Bathrobe?


Namaste Cover Up
I'm not loving the new Namaste Cover Up, especially in this color. As someone mentioned on facebook, it looks like a bathrobe. Another criticism I agree with is that the sleeves are too short. I'm not a huge fan of the 3/4 sleeve - I like having the option of pushing up my sleeves.

Flashbaback Sweatsuit = yuk
I'm so not a fan of the head to toe sweatsuit look unless I'm house bound and no one will see me in it.

Yeah, not a fan of the namaste cover up. If I want to get a cute long cardigan, I'm going to look at Anthropologie or J. Crew, because this lululemon one is not doing it for me. It looks baggy and sloppy and doesn't fit that girl well.

YUCK!!! Are the totally forgetting their core buyers!-- hello technical running, yoga and spin gear-- where are you! -- this is just getting ridiculous!!! Where are the great tanks and cool pants that made me fall in love with lulu to begin with -- I don't need sloppy lounging around the house clothes -- i need WORKOUT clothes!!! This is like knock off Victoria Secret knocking off Juicy crap!!!

How many sweats with cuffs does one need? Come on. There has been so many out this season, enough already. Like Momof5 says this is trully getting ridiculous. Is Lulu really an athletic wear company? Doesn't look like it to me. Their designs are getting from bad to worse. Where are the sportswear??? I hate to say it, but the Head of Designer who approves all these designs need to be fired.

Zanna,
She might have been. They posted on facebook that they're looking for a new head designer. Either that, or she knew she was leaving and phoned it in this last season

So agreeing with you ladies .... that cover up won't be making it into my lulu wardrobe!

I'm wondering if they made all these french terry and other non luon items because they're recalibrating their fabric? I wore a brand new power Y to walk around the park and when I got home, there was pilling all along the side where I held my tote! The bag has a smooth polyester surface, too. That's completely unacceptable to me and I'm not buying anything else from the company until they publicly announce the quality of their luon has improved.

Anyway, here's hoping that's the case from both a design and quality aspect.

I'm starting to see what everybody is saying about the quality of fabric going downhill. I just got a new Modern RB in the mail and there are two holes in it; the holes are fairly large and very obvious.

Quality control???

I tried on the flashback skirt today. Personally I thought it was way too short... cute on a younger girl, and I'm not overly modest, but I find alot of there clothes are now geared towards a younger generation.

Marci,
I feel the same way...Looks like "Lulucrombie" to me.

BTW I actually saw this in-store in passion. It was just as unflattering and boring in person. yuk.
