I read that my stores got the new Flash and Wild Lime in today so I went to South Coast Plaza to check it out. The photo above is probably the best real life representation of Heathered Flash that I have. I have to be honest, I hate this color. I thought Paris Pink was obnoxiously bright but this is much worse. It's very neon. It glows. It's very Hot Tube Time Machine, an era I already lived through and am not interested in repeating. If you're younger, maybe you won't have the same reaction but this color reminded me of when I had big hair and dayglo acrylic nails (can you tell I lived in New Jersey for awhile?). I thought the heathered version would be a little mellower than the solid but it seems almost brighter. The heathered flash cool racerback I ordered last night is going back as soon as I get it. One caveat I will make is that if you are a runner or cyclist and want maximum visibility, then Flash is a great color for you. I also really liked Wild Lime and nearly bought the cool racerback but I already have the Heathered Tree Frog CRB. It's like a deeper, less pastel version of Faded Zap. I might get an Energy bra in Wild Lime to wear under my zipper CRB. I think Flash is best appreciated in small doses - a colorful waistband, a bra, or a pair of Speed shorts but in an entire tank I found it overwhelming.
There is a new Pigment Blue and White Stay on Course tank out. I liked this a lot but I just don't gravitate towards navy blues in my workout wear.
I didn't notice this tank when it was uploaded last night but saw it in the store today. I really liked it and ended up ordering one from the web today. The one I tried on it the store had something odd going on at the neckline and armpits - they were stretched out and gaping. The luon in this power y is super soft - like a heathered Cool Racerback.
I also saw this new scoop neck, which is very pretty. I seem to be in a Power Y phase now so left this at the store.
