Today's Upload - A Few Goodies

I went ahead and ordered the Black Pique In Stride. Everyone who has tried it on has loved it and I'm feeling too lazy to drive down to the store. If I don't love it I can always take it back but I know this is going to sell fast.


I think the model looks a little squished up top in this tank. When I tried on the Light Up tank this past summer, I liked the tank but it squished my boobs. I think the price should be a bit lower, too, since they removed the reflective tape on the tank.

A reader on Facebook pointed out this photo. It's a very unusual way to photograph underwear. I call it, "the I've just got done boinking the photographer, time to get dressed" look.  ;-)

I was secretly hoping the Ikat No Limit tank would show up today but according to one reader it will be here by the end of January. What did you all order today?

Did you see they also uploaded a Concord Grape In Stride this morning? I thought of you when I saw it. :)

Nothing for me today. I'm still contemplating a concord grape or beachy green CRB, but am also holding out to see what other colors the No Limit is released in this round.

I only got the aruba CRB and Skinny Piorette headband.

I caved and bought the new savasana wrap - I don't need it at all, but I love the pattern on the inside/collar on this one.

@ amber - I would like a Define in the Concord Grape but we'll see now that I got a pique In Stride coming.

I was disappointed not to see the new Groove and Groove crops with the quilted ray pattern. I would think they'll turn up next week.

LOL that picture is TOTALLY AWKWARD.

Luna said...

i was hoping to see beachy green, so no order from today's upload.

I didn't buy anything because everything on the site that was uploaded is already in my local Lulu. I bought the Ikat CRB and In Stride in Blk Pique. I was secretly hoping that Ikat CRB was going to show up on the website, however, because my store didn't have a 6 so I hesitantly bought the 4, now realizing that I really need a 6!

i WANT to order a Retro Groove bag, but I am already out of cash :D How fast do these sell out? I need it to stay in stock till February... :D

LuluAddict said...

@Makavelina - The gym bags don't sell out nearly as fast as the clothes due so you are probably ok.

The photo is pretty funny, I laughed when I saw it too- though I thought it looked like she just finished in the bathroom. Definitely a strange one! However, did you see the third photo of the Lagoon Unicorn Tears Lacy Lulu Hotshorts? The undies on the clothes line? It's really cute!

No purchases for me this week... Though I am really tempted to cave and buy a Define jacket! It's the last Lulu 'staple' item that I don't have and want... Tempting!

I ordered the In Stride in Black Pique and a headband. As you, way to lazy to drive to the store and plus it is freaking snowing again!! Ugh.

I can't wait to receive!

Amanda said...

Is that POW PINK I see on the Speed Up Tank, LuluAddict?? :) Any word of that color coming back? :)

Makavelina said...

@Luluaddict: Thank you, your answer will probably make me sleep peacefully tonight :D I didn't like bags in the past, but this one in Aruba is so great looking, I am falling for Aruba!

RunMama said...

I ordered nothing. I'm not crazy about the look of the In Stride, I would have preferred a black pique Stride. I have found so many lulu goodies lately though that I am relieved to not see anything I must have in today's upload.

Jena said...

Just visited my local lulu, and I ended up passing up the iKat print. Why? Because it looks REALLY CHEAP in person. Seriously.

I bought the In Stride in black pique. This will go fast. It's absolute perfection.

prairie80 said...

I ordered the grey pique stride (I like having a hood).

Just wanted to comment that the all black No Limits tank that made a brief appearance online the other day showed up at my house today!

Anonymous said...

@Jena, I felt the same way about the print. It felt weird so I got the In Stride

AB said...

i caved and bought the savasana wrap - likewise DON'T need it but it's one of the last 'staple' lulu items that i don't yet have. also got a pacific beach hoodie for my b/f (a recent lulu convert) but am disappointed that they RARELY upload any men's underwear. they are in such demand they also never have mens underwear stocked in my local store. anyone else have similar issue?

also couldn't resist the 'unicorn tears' print lacey lulu hotshorts .. even though i normally wear thongs! beautiful print i can't wait to see in person.

every time i say "this will be my last order for a while", there's something that i seem to want EVERY WEEK! this website only fuels my addiction LOL!

ChiRunner said...

@AB - My hubbie loves the Lulu men's underwear and they're hard to find in my local stores too - unless you are a man who wears a size small, which my hubs is not. They seem to sell out fast online as well.

LuluAddict said...

@ Amanda - It sure does look a lot like Pow Pink - good eye. For some reason, I have been reading about Pow Pink lately so I am thinking it might be coming back. Dang, I can't remember where I've read about it. Maybe in context with Australian stuff.

@Anon 10:10 am - I LOVE the Define Jacket. I have three and want more but it has to be a special color for me and I have to have a few tanks to pair with it. I am wearing my Passion one right now with an Ivory CRB and Teak brown Stills. I wear my Passion one all the time lately.

@ AB - Have you called the GEC for the underwear. I don't routinely look for the men's stuff in my store except to cruise the sale rack for my husband. The only under he has from Lulu is the Metal Camo Compression Underwear that hit loot in the summer for something like $4 each. There is no way he'd spend $24 on a single pair of briefs.

Surprisingly, my yoga studio got the no limits tank before my local lulu did. I tried on the coal/purple combination and it's cute, albeit a size smaller than what I needed (only sz 6 available). The Irvine lulu said they might be getting them in Friday or Monday so I'll be calling them Friday night or Saturday morning. I also meant go get a black repetition crop but left with the pants version instead. It fits tighter (and maybe more supportive?) than the WU so I sized up as did the educator I spoke to. The pants seem to be selling well as I bought the second to last one on the rack. The pants can be hemmed as they left about a 3" luon spot under the mesh decoration.

The black InStride is perfection, however the C Grape one is nothing special imo. Also I noticed the Concord Grape tee had white blothes throughout the garment, looks like the color did not adhere to the garment during the dyeing process.

No one seems to like the Speed Up tank but I got it in all colors. I love it!

LuluAddict said...

@ Anon 3:15 pm - I agree with you about the solid colored In Strides being rather blah. I like the pique one because the texture adds visual interest but the regular luon ones have very non-descript, small zippers and the jacket needs some sort of bling to dress it up. The two tone version will are better.

Interesting about the grape lively tee having blotches. You would think they wouldn't put it on the rack if it had a defect.
