Real Life Photos of Get Started and Run: With It Jacket







For those of you thinking about getting the Get Started jacket that is now in Loot, here are some real life photos of it. This is another jacket that I think looks best viewed from the rear.

The two cutest pics I have found of the Run: With It Jacket. Most photos I have seen of this jacket do not look flattering at all. I think you have to size down to get rid of the boxiness.

I passed on both of these. They just didn't look good on me. I've bought enough on markdown & regular priced items lately.

Looking for opinions on two things. Trying to decide if I should buy the Classy Classic bag in sidewalk. It's the one that looks like it's all patent leather. It's shiny, so I don't know if it's too flashy. The other item is the Dance Studio pants. All the educators were wearing these in the store the other day and they looked cute. They are a little wide at the bottom on me, maybe I just need to get used to that look. I would get black. These would be just for casual around the house & weekend wear, not for working out. Thx for the input!

I think the classy classic in sidewalk is a nice neutral and the patent makes it "special."

The dance studio pants are GREAT. Very comfortable and flattering on everyone I've seen them on. I love mine. I have both the summer/unlined and winter/lined versions and they are both great.

DSP's are amazing pants. You can cinch the bottom, or have them hemmed (annoyingly lulu will not hem off the drawcord though). I have coal and white and realize I hardly wear any of my other pants now!

Thank you for posting pictures of people wearing the Get Started Jacket. I was on the fence about buying it, but after seeing the photos, I realize I don't want to get it. I don't like how it looks from behind.

I ordering the Classy Classic in sidewalk a while ago, and while unpacking my nail scratched it and left a (small) mark. I personally can't deal with a gym bag that gets ruined that easily. Just something to think about - it's gorgeous in that colour, but harder to keep nice.

Oops - I meant to say annoyingly lulu *will* hem off the drawcord.

I got the Get Started Jacket in black for $49... I wasn't originally a fan of the short length, but I've found it quite nice for layering over any colour tank, especially all the CRBs I own :). The back is airy and unique-looking. For the price, it's a pretty nice to-and-from jacket.

I bought both the Get Started jacket in coal and the Run: With It Jacket in sidewalk/white foxy plaid and love them! The Get Started jacket looks so cute with a CRB underneath and Astro/Groove pants. I get compliments all the time, from behind! The Run: With It Jacket definitely runs big and you need to size down. It also looks great with a bright CRB underneath, like Chirp. I think both pieces are a great addition to my Lulu wardrobe and I would highly recommend them!

This is a bit off topic and kind of odd, but I recently got a couple of pairs of wunder unders and I love them but I can't seem to find any underwear that doesnt leave VPL in them! Its really annoying and im not going to not wear any underwear just to get rid of them... what do you ladies do?

@ anon 12:33 am: many of the girls that I work with wear thongs (why do I know this? TMI, yes) under their LLL pants...any tight pants for that matter. I can't stand that feeling, personally, so I tend towards boyshorts and they hit right at the hip/butt creases so the pants don't show "as much" VPL. frankly, I don't think there's a way to get around it except for going commando or wearing a barely there thong.

on a totally different thought, thank for posting some real pics of real girls who aren't stick thin wearing assorted LLL pieces. and kudos for those models in having the self confidence to wear tighter fitting clothes. when I was that size (college wasn't nice to me), all i wanted to wear was anything baggy, loose, and tent-like. at any rate, i'm looking at the mynah tank. how does it fit in the back with that nice strap across the middle? back fat hangover? the elastic doesn't bother me as much as that pseudo-bra strap across the back. i would have preferred the vita tank but no more in my size. guess the price made it way more palatable to buyers. thoughts on the mynah?

So, I ended up ordering the get started jacket. When it arrives and I try it on with some coordinating pieces I'll let you know if I'm happy with my purchase.

In the mean time, an order I placed on Friday with the second round of loot upload is still in "in progress batch" status - which seems to happen with Friday purchases. Nothing progresses with your order until monday. I had ordered the half moon in coal and the run with it in foxy plaid size 4 and they both were sold out later. SO, because lulu is so horrible about real-time stock I won't know for sure if i'm getting these items until Monday at the earliest. I hate that because in the past, when I've paid with paypal and one item in my order is out of stock my WHOLE order has been cancelled and if it is loot that usually means in the mean time every other items I ordered has become out of stock. Very frustrating and highly unprofessional.

Anyone else who placed a friday late morning order (I ordered around 11:30am) get their stuff shipped out on friday?

Pilatesmom@ -- I placed my loot order at 11AM Friday (their time, 1 EST) and I received and shipment confirmation -- but that seems to be around the cutoff for shipped versus in progress -I placed 3 separate orders as stuff kept popping up, and so I could avoid the paypal pitfall - I know it is annoying and bad for my fedex guy but you gotta do what you gotta do-- Hopefully you will get your shipped notice on Monday!!

What color get started did you get -- I am between angel and passion

pilatesmom said...

@momof5: I'm weak. I ordered both colors ; )

the fact that your order shipped and mine did not makes me a bit nervous. Hopefully I'll getting shipping conf on monday...
When I went back to the page right after I ordered (and again a few minutes later) the items/sizes I ordered were still there (as opposed to placing the order, going back to the page and seeing the item/size gone in which case you know you either got the last one or you're out of luck).

momof5 said...

@pilatesmom-- I am sure you will get the confirmation monday -- they are soooo painfully slow with the friday shipment notices -- and if the size was still there after you ordered, I am sure you are fine!

AAAK!! you aren't helping me decide!!! I think the back looks pretty and unusual! I ordered the devi in pink (I have a lot of senorita pink) so maybe I will go with the angel, then maybe I should grab the angel half moons too -- i think it would be a cute outfit ---

pilatesmom said...

@momof5: I think you should go with the angel. All of the comments from people have exclaimed how exceptionally pretty that jacket is in angel. I went back and forth all day and couldn't decide between the two and thus ordered both. I'm sure I'll get use out of both.

I actually ordered the Half moon and Run with it Jackets.( coal/angel size 8, foxy plaid size 8) My order still says in Progress, I ordered late afternoon 2:30pm so 10:30am their time. This may sound sad, but I'm kinda hoping they will tell me my items are out of stock. I think I jumped too quickly and got over excited about the loot items. I guess I will have to wait until Monday to see if it goes thru or not. I think the Half moon will drive me nuts ( trying to pull it down all the time.. I do tend to like longer tops ) and I think the run with it will be too big.
