Need Your Nominations for Best & Worst Lulu of 2011

I am starting to think about listing the Best and Worst Lulu for this year, as I have done for the past couple of years. What was your number one new piece - it has to be a new design or one that was retired for a couple of years? What was your favorite new color or print? What was the worst thing you saw this year?

I love my It's a Cinch Dress! Have it in Seabed (which I love). Have managed to transition it to cold weather temps by putting a long cardigan over top and wearing with leggings.

Favorite print unicorn tears. I wear it and still get tons of compliments and the tanks add a splash to black and coal. Favorite item, jog skirt. Flattering without all the fuss.

Cuddle Up and Jog skirt aren't new items...technicalities....

Best print was ikat from early in the year. My fav sweater is the dwbh. Worst item of the year ( most useless) would be the poncho and tutu ( can u imagine an outfit with them together?!?)

Print: Unicorn Tears

Worst - harem crop, hot & sweaty crop, CRB with zipper that comes w a 'preview' hole, free fall crop and poncho

Here is my list:
Best piece (especially in terms of function): Energy bra, for sure. I have begun to replace all of my other bras (50 rep, all sport, etc), and now I already own 6 energy bras. High support, breathable luxtreme, and really pretty at the same time.
Honorable mentions: turbo tank, flow and go, live healthy wrap, city beat pants. (also love staples for me like swiftly tanks and long sleeves, crbs, and speed shorts)
Best color: Iris (NOT the wee stripe version, but the solid color - unfortunately, they only managed to make a few items in this solid color but I snagged them all). Also loved purple crush, beachy green, violaceous, and snorkel blue.
Best print: Unicorn Tears. LOVE IT. Wish I could have bought more in this print.
Worst: Harem Pants, $100 Tutu, and all the price increases coupled with quality issues we saw this year.

Anonymous said...

I love the Sing Floss Travel jacket.

Love the Black Herringbone print.

Chili Pepper gets my vote for color, although I haven't seen it in anything for women yet this year.

Quilted Still Groovy Bag, favorite bag.

Favorite top: V Neck Swifty.

Fail: Harem Pants, Batman Poncho, Run Your Heart Out Pullover (reminds me of a washboard, and not the good abdominal kind).

Amanda said...

Best colour: black swan!

Best Bag: Wanderlust rucksack in Royalty... I can actually take this backpack around without looking like I'm in highschool.

Best bottoms: Acro Crop

Best print: Embossed peacock lace

Wish I had bought; Blackswan Creekside Camo Scuba, Black swan life simply

Bought on a Whim and Glad I did: City to Yoga Jacket

Most functional Jacket: Sing Floss Travel Jacket / Live simply (Very similar)

Stupid Lulu moves: super expensive intro price on split shorts meant loads of them on the Clearance rack.

Making scuba's so darn expensive

Tutus

Harem pants (Didn't they make this mistake once already)

Why not?: peacock lace on black swan.

Anonymous said...

Faves: 2 reds (Currant and Tango red) in a year, Black Seabed wunder unders, Hang Loose pants and Harem pants (I really, really do)

Worst: the creep up in prices for things like CRB, legwarmers, Vinyasa Scarf (and poor quality with each new batch)

So much hate on the poor harems... But then again, the more hate on it, the cheaper I can buy it for myself and rock it! (bc some people actually do!)
