Pics - Half Moon Crop? & More Matching Outfits

It looks like there is a matching crop to go with the Half Moon Jacket. I am liking both the Half Moon jacket (I always liked the Shape anyway) and matching crop.

Potion Purple & Static Outfit - Define, Groove Crops, Scoop Neck Tank

Dare I hope that the nightmare of the past year is over? Is the old Lululemon back? I am liking nearly every outfit that I have posted a photo of over the last couple of days. What is amazing is that these are all technical luon clothes. Finally! I know it's just basics - Power Ys, Scoop Neck Tanks, and Groove pants/crops/shorts - but a source told me that is what is selling in the stores - the basics. Not the weird and schlumpy Namaste pants or Get Started or Devi jackets.  We could tell that for ourselves by what is showing up on the racks and in Loot but it was nice to have it confirmed. I am glad Lululemon is having the stores put out photos of these coordinating pieces and making an effort to show us they still have it when it comes to simple basic exercise clothes. That is what built their company. They were foolish to have abandoned it. I hope there are more tanks to come and I will hope for a reappearance of the Athletic Deep V!

While the savage green half moon below didn't do much for me, I have to say I love the angel blue (but I'm in love with that color - have the free2be angel blue jacket on the way) and like the addition of the thumb and pony holes. Also think the coordinating crops look amazing with it. This outfit is officially on my list now.

I really hope what you said is true that Lulu is sticking to the basics. While I'm still not to keen on the Scoop Neck Tanks with the contrastring neck strap, I think it is growing on me. Am hoping for new technical tanks too in luon. Other fabrics does not do it for me. Am sure a lot of people wishes that the Half Moon Jacket would be longer. But at least it looks wearable and flattering compared to numerous things we have seen so far

I just came from Lulu and got the black w/potion groove pants, potion & angel blue define jackets, organic rib tank in heathered charcoal, coal w/wee stripe scoopneck & the potion purple and angel blue CRB's. I am so excited, it makes working out so much more fun when you have new goodies.

If they could now come out with some pretty yet subtle prints.

Zanna, I am with you, I do not like the white necks at all but do like the contrasting neck if it isn't too much of a contrast. The wee stripe scoop is cute. I would get it but already have the push ur limits in that combo.

I love love love the define in potion purple! It will be hard not to get it if it shows up in my store. Do you guys really like the ponytail hole in the hood of the half moon jacket? I personally think its a little strange...I don't think I would use it. The jacket itself is really cute though.

I need another pair of crops like I need a hole in the head, but I sure love the look of those half-moon crops....I wonder what the waist band looks like and how high the rise is. I also like the look of the half moon jacket, but would prefer it without the hood....

I just sold my old Shape jacket to get the new define -for one reason -- too short -- this looks just the same -- bummer-- Good thing its almost summer and no need for jackets -- i just wish it were a smidge longer -- Love the crops though -- would love to see the waistband! they look promising -

SO happy to see technical basics that we all love back -- maybe they have heard the grumblings afterall!!

The new goodies are awesome! Is this new merchandise in stores already? I haven't received a product notification yet about these products being in my store.

Where can I find the On The Move bag? I have to have it!

Pattybea said...

Momof5--I agree with the length, too short. I also love the define, I have 4, but I wish they would stitch down the inside of the collar. It looks cheap and/or poorly made. Whenever you see a photo of someone modeling it, they always have it zipped up so you don't see it. I am waiting to see if they fix this at some point.

@anon 8:57pm - I received a product notification that the Halifax store got the on the move bag.

@pattybea - I feel the same way about the Define collar. I wish they would fix it and give it a more polished look. I have 3 now so I obvious will keep buying it but that is the main flaw with that jacket.

lmhagood said...

@pattybea: Totally agree about the Define collar...the longer you own it, the worse it gets too. I still love the jacket, but this is kind of an annoying design flaw.

Really liking your latest posts and pictures - cannot wait to see the new goods at my store!

To answer Lacey, I personally do not like the ponytail holes. If my hood is up, it's because it's cold and/or raining and snowing and I don't want my hair getting wet - that will still make me colder!

I like the look of the new stuff but I hate hoods so I think I'll pass on the half moon stuff. I'm in love with the potion purple though and I recently damaged my only scoop neck tank (which is one of my favs) so I think I will be picking that one up. I don't own a define jacket so I'm thinking of getting the purple one... I would really love to find a pique grey one. I decided not to buy it when they were in stores and I regret it now.
