Chase Me Tank Hitting US Stores and Other Photos

The Chase Me tank is finally hitting US stores. There is a version in wild blue stripe I am curious to see. I definitely want to try this on.

Two more photos of the Run: Wild 1/2 Zip in Dazzling.

Chili Red Run: Response Shorts are back in the stores. These sold out quickly when they were on line. I can't remember if they ever made it to stores in the US but if they did they were gone quickly. The non-gray and black colors go fast.

The Embrace crop is coming back. This photo is from an Australian product alert.

More lulu ed silliness - Wee Are From Space Multi Cool Racerkback and matching Wunder Unders.

I don't care for the wee are from space multi altogether combinations. It is so busy to the eye it's unpleasant almost. I like coordinating my clothes a lot as well as my lulus but this defies all fashion principles. Bad idea, in my opinion. Those wee are from space multi pieces are better off paired with solids for the sake of the people around us. A few of you might be able to pull it off though. I surely can't.

Yea!!!! Love the Embrace Crops. Have all three colors from the first issue. Hopefully it will come in deep indigo. I will make that mine!!!!

I'm not familiar with the Embrace crops...can one of you tell me what they're for and why you like them so much?

In regards to the Embrace crop. I believe that it was made primarily for yoga, but of course you can use it for other sporting activities. However, it may be too hot for running. I like it a lot for my yoga classes. Very pretty detailing/ruching at the bottom of the leg openings and also a pretty ruching/pleating at the waistband. Initially, there were a lot of worries as to how the ruching will look with a tank over it, as in bulky waist, but it does not bother me, nor does it look bad, visually. I think it adds a lot of feminine touch to my crop and a nice change from my good ol standby, the Wunder Under crop.

Come to think of it, I believe the crop in the teaser banner of "crops", is the Embrace. I wonder what color it will come in? The PN from Australia looks like those slub denim-like fabric that's been used in the Yin To You, Ride On crop etc. Just hoping for the nice deep purple and deep indigo. :)

Did the embrace ever come in a pant? I don't wear crops but would love that longer.

Bought both black and aqua Chase Me tanks today...they are cute and very flattering, BUT...
1. what bra do you wear them? the neckline is super cute, but will look weird with a bra. maybe ta-ta? any insights?
2. there is a little bit of underarm flab. i'm hoping the tank loosens up a little bit from wear. these were literally right out of the box.

Anyone, anyone? Thanks for your feedback!

OT--I need to vent for one moment. I ordered a pair of Run Excel crops in indigo and received them yesterday. They fit great (I could've sized down. But when I read the reviews, I ordered my usual size thinking that if I sized up it would be waaaayyy too big. Reviewers said to size up.) I noticed the luxtreme felt MUCH thinner compared to my other luxtreme crops. But that could be a good thing in the summer months. The rise is like my speeds. Love it. Then, I bend over, WHOA. There are my undies and a** for the world to see. When I took them off, I slightly stretched the material and it was completely transparent. I have never had this issue with any of my luxtreme products!!! I was so disappointed in the quality and how they can charge $78 for such a product. Am I the ONLY one experiencing this with luxtreme crops? Or are they suppose to be like that now? None of the reviews said anything about the see-thru aspect.
I feel better now. Thanks for reading.

I went to store to try on Chase Me Tank and the Run: Wild 1/2 Zip in Dazzling, but they didn't have them. However, I ended up getting something I completely did not expect- the Apres Run Anorak. I had seen it online and was slightly interested in the camo color. That sold out online and so that was that. Well, the black was in the store in sale- got it for $109. They only had a size up from my regular size- but to my surprise (I had read they ran big) it looked great on! Super flattering and such a nice finish to it. It's so soft and cozy inside. I am very happy. I also got the wee are from space multi scoop neck. I like the longer length, it is super soft, and I like the edgier look with the black trim/stitching.
Also, big shout out to the GE's at the Tyson's VA store- hands down the nicest, most helpful GE's I've ever encountered- I have not always had such nice customer service at some of the area's stores. They were great. And on a super busy day to boot. I don't go to this store normally, it's a little far from me- but wish I could visit more. I'd much rather do business with them.

I love my Apres Run Anorak too. Have the ghost coal herringbone at full price, and lucky enough to have found the very pretty deep camo herringbone on markdown! Been wearing both quite a bit this past few days, as it has been cold and drizzly.

Want to give a great shout out to the GEs at lulu in Santa Barbara, CA. They are always super nice, helpful and knowledgeable! Love them!!!

MonkeyGirl said...

@yogibabe- another customer mentioned the jacket I got was the black version- but it's deep camo- I realized when I got home. I had thought it might be, as the cuffins are camo, sherpa in cream- so it's even the color I wanted :) I love it!

yogibabe said...

@MonkeyGirl
Pretty!!! Yup, it's the deep camo. You are very lucky to have snagged that color this late in the game! :)

Anonymous said...

@Yogibabe did you also go a size up like MonkeyGirl? or stayed TTS on the ones you got?

yogibabe said...

I actually would love to size down, but this anorak did not come in a size 2. The 4 is fine, I just have to make sure my waist is cinched properly to have a good fit. So, usually if you stay TTS, it will be fine, especially if you are layering.

Saw the embrace crops in the Irvine store today. They had them in black, black slub denim and heathered coal. I think the ones in the picture above are the black slub denim. I love my black ones from last year, so I ended up buying a pair in heathered coal.

Thank you. I just snapped up on ebay the only one in my size I found in Deep Camo. MonkeyGirl got me excited about it, although I thought I had made up my mind on this one a while ago.

This is CD from across the pond.

MonkeyGirl said...

@anon 1:53- I think you'll be glad you got it! I got complimented on it today, I really like it. I think getting it TTS is a good call, I know lots of people sized down. Mine is one size up and it is much roomier than I would have preferred. I layered it over a sweater and it was fine, also, despite the oversize, it looks good (at least I think so :) TTS should give you room to layer but not be overwhelmingly large I wouldn't think.

@MonkeyGirl, I actully sized up, like you did. I know I will always have to layer up here where I live and the reason I had decided not to buy it when it was online, was because I was afraid of getting that humpback if I got it TTS. So I decided to go up a size, even if it fits loose all over. After all it's an anorak, not a extra-long CRB ;-)

Thank you for sharing here your review of it!
