Pics of Stuff - Mesh CRB, White Define,

The Canadian stores are starting to get the SE Circle Mesh CRBs in so I hope we'll get them soon, too. This is a good photo of the white mesh CRB that shows how sheer it is/isn't. I wouldn't mind getting the pink one but I am afraid it might be too see through so I am hoping it comes to the stores so I can try it on.

There is a new white stride out now. I don't really care for the gauntlet-style color blocking at the wrist. I guess it helps with trying to keep a white jacket cleaner looking in that area.

The Vinyasa scarf is huge. This style of wearing it reminds me of a baby sling.

I'm still not digging the Vinyasa hat. The style is too masculine and it reminds me a little of Dopey:


When I say Lululemon's hat is too masculine, I mean guys typically wear the more pointed slouchy hats:



More feminine slouchy hats look more like this:

These slouchy hats are super cute but would fall off if you tried to run in them.

Do you know what the contrast is on the white stride jacket? I had a white one not long ago with the coal wee stripe as the accent. It looked like this one.

I saw it in the store but I can't say for sure. I think it's the newer coal static stripe.

One *could* hide a nice size bag of BC bud in that Vinyasa hat, though...

Seriously, I would love to have seen a more "beret" type hat from Lulu-much more feminine and cute.

I just bought the hat yesterday. I hated it in the slouch mode, then the sales girl showed me where to snap it and then it is a beenie. It is so comfy. I wear hats to teach boot camp in the am in the Pacific NW. This is perfect.

@Susan-I agree, I would only wear it in the beanie-style. For winter running, I love beanies!!

I wud like a beret style as well! Great idea ...

For those of you who don't like the slouchiness of the Vinyasa Toque, the men's Ultralight Run Cap is running Luon, too (confirmed by GEC). It only comes in black, but black goes with everything.

I have one and love it. I thought it would be too big since I have a smaller head, but it's nice and snug and super comfortable. :)

That being said, I may get the Vinyasa Toque, too. I've been thinking about it since it went up on the site. I think I'd like it better without the snaps, though. Just a basic beanie.

That's good to know the hat snaps into a beanie mode. I'll have to check out the men's hat. I'll see if I can find a photo to post.

Here's a link to the hat (sold out now). Apparently it came in red, too, at one point. My store only had black. I'd probably get red, too, if I could. :)

Oh, and there was evidently a women's Ultralight Run Cap at some point, too. I found one on eBay in a sort of aqua color. Looks the same only with a ponytail hole in the back.

Both have small ear flaps, which are great as long as you have a smaller head so that they cover most or all of your ear. :)

I think that is the older white stride with the wee stripe. Note the zipper pull...that is the older style. The new style is a metal 3 piece round thingamajig.

I love this stride. I too wasn't fond of the cuffs but being summer I usually have them folded up so only a bit shows.

starrwinter said...

I'm pretty certain the stride is older too along with the Angel Blue and Potion Purple versions because of the older zipper pulls and details. I remember people posting them on the exchange before too.

Of course, this didn't stop me from buying the Angel Blue Stride II because I love/look great in that color ;)

The pictures of the white Circle Mesh CRB are encouraging... Maybe I will consider white or pig pink afterall. I really do love my black one!

Went in the store to purchase the static alarming CRB but came out with lolo instead. My bf LOVED it too and usually doesn't get excited when i drag him into lulu weekly. The lolo was by far my favourite. His favourites in order were lolo, grey (forget the name of it), alarming and oasis last.

LuluAddict said...

That's weird about the white stride because I found pictures of it from a couple of different stores and I saw it in my store last week.

Pattybea said...

They must have found some white strides hiding in the warehouse and re-released them in the stores. I have had mine since early spring (March, I think), bought online. Came out at the same time as the coal/bubbilicious stripe.

Ok, so I have been playing with my Vinyasa hat a little more and I love the snaps. There is a row in the back of them. The 2 one the bottom are the male kind and the rest are the female. In the beanie mode, the row of snaps are a nice detail. But because there is a row of them, you can make the beanie longer or shorter. I would do it longer when it's cold and I wear it for warmth, and shorter when my hair looks crappy and I have to work outside.

New Wrap - "express yourself wrap" in black, grey and lolo. same soft knit fabric as zen wrap (and with thumbholes) but I didn't like the zen wrap (too complicated and messy on, couldn't deal with it). this one can hang/drape open or you can knot it it front and the back is longer than the zen.
