Photos of the Latest and Comments About the Upload/New Loot


Photo of the new Heathered Lavender Gray CRB. Don't ask me why the logo appears off-center. I would hope it's a weird angle or something but it doesn't look like it. I am curious to see the color in person to compare it to Heathered Pigeon.

A photo to illustrate what an embossed print looks like in real life. It's subtle and the light has to be right to see it.

I didn't realize there was also a Flow Y coming in Silver Luon. All the prices of the Silver Luon items are a bit high for me. The Power Y is $64. I was hoping it would be $58, the same price the Challenge tank was restickered to when people balked at the initial $78 price tag. The Silver Define is $128, $29 more than a regular.

For some reason I really like the Ghost Ground Nesting Blackbird Scuba. I won't buy one since I am deathly afraid of committing that much money to a white item but it's pretty. I like the black logo.


The Fresh Manifesto long sleeve new colors. I wore my white one today over a Power Y. It's a useful top but so expensive. I am hoping to pick up one of these on markdown. I know, it's a longshot.

The new Lavender Gray Dance Studio Jacket. For some reason, I never post photos of these even though they are a very flattering and comfortable jacket.

If we were playing word association games, the word 'Batman' would pop into my head for this photo.

The Harem pants. Still not loving them.

So, the upload was pretty dull. I didn't order anything but I am hoping to try on some stuff at the store tomorrow. I did buy a pair of the Low Cut Ultimate socks that got put into Loot tonight. I was thinking about getting the Coal Speedy Run hat but the reviews say it fits small and I find the older Flight Running Bonnet a bit tight in certain colors that I have. I'll have to remember to try on the hat at the store tomorrow. What did you all buy?

Uggh, the DS jacket. I have the black. Then got grapeseed in loot. I love lavender gray so much. I fear I'll soon own three. I also live in SoCal and feel scubas are too much for this climate. I wear one of them almost everyday.

I was looking forward to a ls manifesto in a dark colour, but once I saw them on the upload, I decided the neck was far too high to be flattering on me...I bought nothing on this week's upload, which is pretty unusual. Hoping for a solace jacket next week!

Hi Luluaddict,
I ordered a couple of pairs of the Low Cut Ultimate socks last night from Loot too. I have a pair, and I love them! I also got the running hat in Rocksteady, and one of the hot yoga towels in Rocksteady (love that colour!). I wanted to let you know that I have the Flight Running Bonnet - and I love it because it stays on when I'm running, even in the wind! However, it does leave a red band around my forehead when I take it off, and it's not adjustable. I ordered the purpley-colour (can't remember the name!) Speedy Run hat when it went to markdown, and it fits great AND it's adjustable. Not too tight at all (and I have a large head, seriously!) So you should give it a try!

I'm not a fan of that black & white scuba. I love patterns but I would love to see a pretty floral pattern, in pretty colours. The black and white kind of hurts my eyes (I've only seen the pics though). Lately it seems the only patterns have been random paint splattery kind of patterns...too bad!
I also have the DSJ in Royalty and love it! It looks so lovely on, and the colour is gorgeous too!
Thanks for the blog - I read it everyday :)

I broke down and bought the Snowy Owl Scuba after "hemming and hawing" since it was uploaded in the US. You finally convinced me LLA. :) I went for my regular size and hoped it's not too big. Never owned a Scuba, just one Cheer Gear that was a gift during the Olympics period. If they fit the same, then I'm OK. I'm a Define girl, and also am in Central Coast of CA. Very moderate winters. But I can't help but totally love the print. (Have the WU Crop and CRB in the same print, though I would not wear them all at once, together!!!) Very tempted by the Embossed print on the Black Define and The Lavender Grey Denim ones too. But passed it for now...

OT: Vancouver being called out by MSN for wearing too many yoga pants :( I do have to remind myself not to wear my Lulu crops on the street. They're comfy, but there are SO many of them here.

i dont think the Lululemon insignia is off center. If you look carefully the seam on the left side seems to be folded over so the insignia looks off center. I think it is a bad picture and the edging/seam needs to be folded back. I think it might be showing that it is reversible. Get it???

yogibabe said...

Oooo...would love to have a WU crop with the Embossed Black Nesting Bird print. Loved mine with the BLACK PEACOCK LACE EMBOSSED print. Any word LLA?

Donna @ Life of a Happy Blonde said...

Oh my gosh i would be sooo mad if i got a tank with the symbol being so off centre!
I really want the coal hat, i hope its still there!!!

Anon 7:40, good eye! I totally think you are right! If you pretend to do the same thing to the other side then it totall centers it back up! lol funny how pictures can play ticks like that :)

Does anyone have any guidance on the sizing/fit of the Low Cut Ultimate sock currently on markdown? The LL sizing chart is of no help.. I usually wear an 8-8.5 in athletic shoes, but my foot is actually a 7.5. Not sure if I should go with the S/M or M/L. Any help would be great!

I bought the Get Down Jacket. I was disappointed that I had to size up two sizes! One size up was very snug with a scuba underneath. This jacket is not good for layering.

@anon 10:06a...i wear a size 9 or 9.5 running shoe (measure as a size 8.5, tho), and i get the m/l, and they fit nicely snug (and i prefer snug socks!)...i would say you're on the fence of the 2 sizes offered, so maybe order based on if you'd prefer a little looser sock or little snugger sock...don't know if that helps any, but i worried over the sock sizing the first time too, so i understand! oh, and their socks are great...i'm pretty picky, and love them

I will be heading into my local store this weekend to check out the nesting bird define and the lavender grey denim define. I have never tried the denim luon, so I'm hoping it will pill and wear less around the sleeves than the usual luon. My Stride and Define are showing some cuff/sleeve wear, even though I wash them on gentle/cold, only with other luon, and hang dry. I ordered 2 lively tees from loot -- $29 is still a ridiculous price for a tee shirt -- but I got caught up in my addiction!

Has anyone else noticed that the reviews seem to be missing from the website (Canadian)? I wanted to see feedback on an item before purchasing.

I think the way the reviews are set up right now is you'll have to click on the link for "printable reviews". At least that's how the US site is.

Will the City Beat Pant hit the web to buy?

Luluitis said...

@yogibabe-- I ordered the Blk Snowy Owl Scuba when it first came on the US website--so I have rec'd it and I LOVE it!! My first Scuba, too. I honestly haven't worn it yet because the weather hasn't been that cold -- but soon!!! It is warm and cozy -- arms a little big -- ordered my normal size. It is SO nice!! The print is awesome!! I also bought the CRB in the Blk Snowy Owl and i ordered a pair of grooves with the print, as well....good luck with yours.

Luluitis said...

@yogibabe--PS I am also tempted by the Blk embosssed Nesting Bird Define and the Lav Grey Denim Define!! Might pass on the Blk Define (have a Blk Solace and a Blk Dance) but WANT the Lav Grey Denim Define!!

yogibabe said...

@ Luluitis: Thanks for your comments. It seems that we both have similar taste (and a great one too!) I am excited about it. In regards to the Defines...may break down ang get the Lavender Grey. I already have the plain Black in Define. BTW.. came across a fluke on the Lulu website. Power Y in Dewberry is $39. (Only the Dewberry.) Not on thw WMTM yet, so a good full size run. Just go to the regular Power Y and pick that color. Grab it quick!

Anon 10:06 a.m. here; thanks for the feedback, Anon 11:19. I also prefer more snug socks, so I think I'll grab the S/M and keep my fingers crossed!

I have received a deep V tank with the Lulu logo upside down... Lulu has quality issues lately...

I am new to this site and new to lululemon. I have bought a couple in stride jackets and one sing floss dance jacket. I am looking at the universal wrap in black and the scuba in heathered wren/ghost. I am assuming size down in wrap and scuba runs true to size. I have never seen these in person, so let me know what you think about the colors. Is the universal wrap worth the money?

Luluitis said...

@yogi babe -- awesome tip on the dewberry power-y!!! Thanks SO much--got one!!! It will look nice under the lav-grey denim define--that we don't have, yet. :)

J in TO said...

@ luluitis and yogibabe: Make that 3 of us in the lavender grey define! I was thinking about the nesting bird define, but LLA blogged that it wasn't that nice -- plus I like the idea of a denim define.

yogibabe said...

@Luluitis & J in TO: we all have great taste! Luluitis- we spread the love when we find deals on the Lulu website. We all win!!! ;)

Luluitis said...

@yogi babe-- here's one -- go to tanks- the whisper,wrap, and breathe deep-- all in black-- are $39. I just got the whisper. Good for the winter!

yogibabe said...

Thanks Luluitis! I've been eyeing the "new" Whisper for a while. Have a white and deep burgundy of the older style. I'll get it in black! Whispers looks very elegant for yoga top, for me. :)

KB said...

if anyone knows of the b & w scuba being in the US or online can you let me know ASAP!!! thanks!!!

NO COMMENT ON THOSE FUGLY HAREM DROOPY WET DIAPER PANTS AND THE FLY AWAY BAT RAIN JACKETS

HATE THE NEW CRAP FROM LULU RIGHT NOW WHICH IS GOOD FOR MY WALLET!

Leah said...

I'm new to Lulu & recently purchased the DSJ online in "lavender gray". Is that really the color it was originally sold as? I'm trying to resell it on EBay now because it runs small & doesn't fit me. Please let me know...
