Pics - White Run: Like The Wind Pullover, the NEW Flashback Crops, Flashback Jacket, Mynah Jacket & Crop (cute!), Potion Purple Free 2Be Jacket

Run: Like the Wind Pullover in White with heathered coal teeny stripe and coal accent. The zipper is passion. I think this version is the best if you aren't getting the solid black.

Flashback Jacket in Passion

The New version of the Flashback Crops

Mynah Jacket & Crop in Black with Lavender
The Mynah jacket and crop are made of luon. I think this black and lavender combo is pretty cute. I'm not thin enough to pull off these pants, but if you are, go for it! These are totally eye catching.

Potion purple...now I'm happy that I didn't buy it in Passion today!

Love the Potion Purple Free 2Be. Any idea when it will be available?

Momof5 said...

I love the potion too -- not as fall-y looking as the zen wrap -- maybe some tanks will be coming in this color! --

there were also some wunder unders on loot --if anyone is interested - --

I wish that they would make more pullovers out of running luon. NOT a fan of luxtreme.

I tried on the flashback jacket today... so cute! i actually really liked the fit but didn't want to buy it for $98.

houndlvr67: What do you not like about luxtreme? I would love a pullover in running luon but missed out on the run energy. I was thinking of getting the Run like Wind but I don't have anything in that material. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I also tried on the Flashback jacket today, and I actually like the fit more than the Free 2 Be jacket. The extra fabric on the underarm of the Free 2 Be is kind of odd and reminds me of a bat.

I agree with anonymous, that the price $98 is a bit steep for a light french terry hoodie (flashback jacket). I remember last year, the Feel Good hoodies, similar in weight and quality of the recent lightweight terry hoodies, were only $78. Later they released Fun Time Hoodies and charged $88. They slowly increased their light hoodies prices to $118 (exhale). However, I think they realized people were not paying that much for this type of jacket, so they brought it down back down a little. I can understand if a product has technical properties (wicking, anti-stink, etc), and charging a premium for that... but for a simple light terry hoodie, it just seems a little steep.

Just my two cents..thanks for listening.

I picked up the flashback jacket today in grey with passion. I love the fit! It's doesn't have the baggy armpit look or the ugly giant hood opening like the Free to Be. I loved every color of this jacket and it took me forever to choose which one! I had different feelings about the matching flashback crop though. I like the old ones better. The old ones have a cute rouching-like detail near the knee and the new ones don't. Without it I felt like I was wearing regular old sweatpants. Bummer. I was looking forward to picking these up! I left with a flashback jacket and a matching pair of run speed shorts in the passion and white foxy plaid print.

I'm pretty much a jacket freak and I got both the flashback jacket in lime and the free 2 B (sized down one on the free 2 B) in passion. If the potion purple becomes available online or at my store I'll get it in that color as well. With all of the light french terry jackets out recently, I don't think they are going to release the remix light this summer.

pilatesmom said...

what's up with the black looking circles in the pits of the run top.

@Anonymous 9:17,

I really don't like the luxtreme because it has a very slick feel to it and tends to ride up, when worn with luxtreme or luon bottoms.

The running luon is very light and super-soft AND still wicking and breathable. There was a version of the Run: Hills Pullover that was made of the running luon and the Run: Energy pullover is made of the running luon as well.

I think that I will return the Free 2 Be in passion and wait for it to be released in potion. Potion is such a flattering, non-Barney shade of purple :). Let's hope for some tech-y tops in it too!

@pilatesmom - which store did you get the flashback jacket in lime from? The store nearby me does not have the lime.

pilatesmom said...

@shopaholic: I purchased it at my local "daily method" studio, which is a lulu strategic sales partner.

shopaholic said...

@pilatesmom - thanks so much. I am such a jacket craze.. I got the Free 2Be jacket. Which one you like better, Free 2Be or Flashback? I know 2 different cuts.. any preference if you have to choose one?

houndlvr67 said...

I got my Free 2 Be in passion, and the Freestyle Jacket in lime TODAY! I am returning the Free 2 Be because I don't like passion with my skin/hair and will wait for the second color run (which I be there will be...). I really like the cut, however. One could size down if you have narrow shoulders and a smaller bust. I stayed true to size.

I LOVE the Freestyle Jacket, so cute! Fun, but not obnoxious. I liked the new Freestyle crops too, but felt a bit like I needed to be "hitting it out of the park" to wear them (ummm, what's my RBI ?). I have "athletic" thighs, so I would stay true to size to achieve the desired "slouch" look.

* I BET there will be :)

I saw the Flashback jacket in my local store today and instantly fell in love with it. I love jackets! I bought the lavender one. It fit perfectly, and I was willing to pay the $98 because of its details and fit.

@houndlvr67: are the freestyle jacket and crops new? what do they look like?

Marci said...

I tried on the new vest and roll down shirt today, and I love them both. I didn't buy as I'm trying to cut back lately. I also scored a too cool tunic for 24$... it will be cute as a bathing suit coverup, and with crops.

Someone from lulu commented on the thread about the potion purple free 2 be saying that it was just a demo picture or something, and the jacket hadn't actually been made in that color. That makes no sense to me, so I'm hoping that it is still to come.

tried on the free 2 be, very nice...but did not need more grey and black (that's all they had)...also too cool tunic was marked down to $49 at my store, but I won't even pay that price for it! Otherwise, I drove 2 hours and bought nothing, I did not see anything that I had to have, and I tried ALOT on! I was going to take back my WWA, but the staff there talked me out of it. I was iffy about it but they said it looked nice and they had not recieved the sobet there so it was different. I guess I did not go home empty handed, I just returned with the bag I went there with!
