Toothpaste and Pink Mist Tanks Are In the Stores


I forgot to write that my local stores had solid Toothpaste and Pink Mist Scoop Neck tanks. They also had the colors in CRBs and Power Ys, too. I can't say I like pastel colors that much when it comes to my gym clothes. I usually prefer to wear a jolt of bold color, a unique print, or to rock all-black like I'm some sort of bad-ass special forces agent. However, I really liked the Pink Mist CRB when I tried in on today but I was considering that more for street wear use. However, I have to say I wouldn't mind trying on the Pink Mist Scoop when it shows up in my size. I ended up selling my Bubbilicious CRB and Push UR Limits after awhile because I didn't care for that tone of pink so I am worried I would do the same with Pink Mist.

So I played with my Vinyasa scarf tonight. I can't really say I like it that much. I would like to use it as a kind of shrug but it keeps falling off my shoulders no matter how I configure it, so it's kind of a fail that way. I'm just not a scarf person, I guess. I am thinking I might trade them in for the Heathered Blurred Gray Define. Sure, I can totally justify that decision. $40 scarf for a $99 jacket. Well, maybe the Pink Mist CRB at least.

I think I'm returning my scarf tomorrow. I am just not a scarf person but i really wanted to try. When I brought it home to show my hubs last night, he laughed at it. He really couldn't believe I spent $38 on it. I don't usually get his opinion but since I would wear it casually I thought I'd see what he thought. I think I am going to return mine for the DSP jacket. When i tried it on in black a few weeks ago I didn't like the tight fit around the belly. I saw someone wearing the white and feel in love with the way it looked. I tried it on today in store but just couldn't leave with it. Now I've read all the reviews and I think I might be going back for it. I like that is different than a Define or an In Stride (since I have so many of those). I wish is was $98 or even $108 like the In Stride. $128 is a bit steep but I think I am going back for it. I only have two white jackets (Alpine & Define) so I could definitely use it for summer.

The pink mist scoop neck looks pretty. The color looks "softer" than Bubbalicious. I might get one! (My closest store is 2 hours away, so I'm hoping it will show up online. :)

SIgh...not a scarf person. Thought about buying a vinyasa for a 3rd time cause everyone loves them so much and if everyone else loves it then I must too, but thought that might be a bit um crazy so I didn't! I think all lulu translates into one for one reguardless of price!

I love my scarf (from the first release before the were hyped up) but really only as a wrap/blanket at my desk. I can't figure out how to really wear it as a scarf and not feel like I look stupid. But the material is pretty dreamy.

OMG! I have three and wear them almost every day! To wear around your shoulders, drape around your shoulders and snap once at your neck. To wear as a ruched looking scarf, wrap once around your neck, then take the sides around the wrapped part at your neck and alternate the snaps. I got so many compliments.

This latest batch of vinyasa scarves (especially the gray pique one) converted me into a vinyasa scarf lover. I thought they were ridiculous the other times - too skinny and looked cheap!

there's an upload going on...or did happen...anyways, citron, canvas tint, greys...looks like quite a few new tanks, etc. to the site.

Do you need to wear a bra with the pure focus? Is the white see through? Thanks!!

The pure focus has a built in bra.. I'm a natural d cup and it even holds me up! The white is somewhat seethrough.

@ anon 1:02 pm... Awesome, thank you!! Is the white see through in the boobage area or just the body?

Anonymous said...

anon 10:08, can you send a photo of how you ruched the scarf? i'm totally lost on the vinyasa scarf. i have one from last year and just bought the static charcoal and i just haven't been able to wear them. i feel as though it looks sloppy. i don't know if i'm buying into the "hype" or if i'm missing out on something great. i really want to love it.

Just received my white Pure Focus (ordered on the "Dreaded 4/15"). As mentioned above, it came with cups-not see through in the boobage area, but if you are tanned/darker complexion, the body area will be somewhat see through. I will be returning mine due to this (spent a month vacation in Singapore and Bali-Yoga Retreat and R&R-so shouldn't complain about being tanner that usual!) and also due to the "spillage" over the armpit region. Some Lulu's top will do this to me eventhough I'm relatively small (4). The material is extremely thin, which will be great for hot yoga, but I don't how it will withstand washes.

Thanks for the feedback on the white pure focus. I ordered one online and haven't received it yet. I do a lot of hot yoga and wonder if it will become sheer when it gets sweaty. has anyone tried it?

Luna said...

Does anybody know how different pink mist is from pig pink?

Great feedback on the white pure focus. I am also wondering about the sheerness when it gets sweaty. Also, does anyone know if the black or the gray shows sweat? I'm assuming the white would show sweat in the way of sheerness? Thanks all!

LuluAddict said...

The Pure Focus is not see through in the boob area but like anon 3:22 you can see a bit in the body, say if you had a beauty mark or something. I think the white is probably the only color that wouldn't show sweat. The other colors turn a shade darker in the perspiration area.

@ luna 6:13 am - I swear we had a comparison photo of pig to pink mist. They are pretty close in color.

Go to Lulu site and check out the Power Y in the pink mist/white microstripe. The last picture, enlarged, shows the comparison between a plain pink (pig?) and the pink mist. Hope this helps. I like it too and am waiting for it in the Scoop Neck.
