The Latest (and Mini Store Report)

Love the pairings of the gray and the blurred blossom print. No Limit Tank in Fossil/Blurred Blossom on the left and the Wee Are From Space Fossil Define with the Blurred Blossom Scoop Neck tank.

I tried on the Blurred Blossom Power Y today at the Newport store. I liked it but since I've been running I haven't been wearing my Power Ys a lot. I definitely want to give the Every Yogi tank in this print a try since I love the material they're made from. I am hoping some other tanks/tops come out in the print that might be a little better for running. I was hoping to try the Daily Tank on today but my store didn't get it yet. I saw the new Bliss gym bag and liked it a lot. I ended up getting an Inkblot Every Yogi tank from the markdown rack, which was pretty healthy.

Oh yes, Blurred Blossom Wunder Under crops showed up today at the Lulu outlet in Canada (they were $49). Not sure why they went straight to the outlet (maybe too sheer?) but if you want to get a pair, try the angel service at Your Personal Shopper Group on Facebook (email contact info listed under Additional Resources on the right margin of this blog).

I'm trying collect as many visible-bra-under-Daily-Tank examples as I can for you. The open back really lends itself to this so might as well play it up. This is a Flow Y underneath the Daily tank. (Shown with Concord Grape Studio Pants.)

Pretty new waistband on Groove crops. I love the pinks and purples on this one. I hope a Ta Ta Tamer comes out in the white wee are from space April multi print. That would be a fun one to put underneath tanks.


Finally a good photo of the Run: Wild SS Tech top. I like the pattern of the reflectivity. This shirt was not at my store today. I have eight short sleeve tech tops between Swiftlys and Revitalize but wouldn't mind some more singlets. I hope there is a Run Wild Singlet coming, hopefully in Concord or another vibrant color. Silverescent is one of my favorite light weight, breathable materials.

Outfit Idea - head to toe Blurred Blossom in a Daily Tank and Pace Setter skirt.

I got a blurred blossom power y and coop neck in the mail today, however both are going back. First, when I purchased the discover stripe scoop neck I thought to myself," Wow! Can this material get any thinner or cheaper?" Apparently, it can- the blurred blossom material is absolute crap! So thin! I've seen nicer tank tops at target. I'm so annoyed with poor quality at lululemon that im not sure why I even bother anymore. The blurred blossom wunder unders were most definitely put on markdown due to being see through. I could see my belly button through the tank so im sure the crops are even worse! Second, the power y is a good inch larger in the bust than my other power ys, so it doesn't fit. I have had so many instances of inconsistent sizing with lululemon recently(in stride, scoop neck, energy bra, power y, speed shorts, and my list goes on!). I live in a state with no store so online is my only option. I am much more weary about online purchases now because I have no clue what the fit will be even if I own the same items in other colors. Like I said, not really sure why I bother anymore. Ok, rant over!

I got the three tanks I ordered on Tuesday today. Blurred Blossom Power Y and same in the Daily...it wasn't a print that I loved in the first place but I bought them to give it a chance. Really wanted the straps on the daily tank to work....but they fell off...bummer, it's got to go back. I'm not sure I like the pattern placement of the power Y...also, gotta go back.

After wearing my grey wee/space XL tank to hot yoga where it stretched out to at least another size larger, I might have to size down in the Flash XL that just came...and the grey wee/space fabric sucks, it felt so synthetic....bad choice to get sweaty in!

I have to say that although I don't love the new print, I don't dislike it either. I like how crisp and light the white background is, it's refreshing. Also the possibilities of wearing it with so many other colors is really amazing! Surprised by the shades of light pink and light purple, really pretty. and I think it will also pair well with the greys blacks and dune. jmo

I think this is a print that will sneak up on you!

I agree about the fabrics feeling flimsy. I can go to Old Navy for flimsy, and for far less $$.

So Every Yogi tanks are on MD now? How come I always buy stuff right before they go on MD (but just over the return period)? Grrr. Just bought the Every Yogi in inkblot. Debated returning it and decided to keep it. Now I wish I'd returned. Could have saved a few bucks. I think I'll return the black one. It's just not a great cut on me.

But I'm happy to have the inkblot, anyway. I have it in 3 tops. Wish they'd make an inkblot vinyasa scarf (btw, some vinyasas are on MD at our store -- again not long after I bought them at regular price).

What timing I have. I need to master it.

Does anyone know if those blurred blossom WU crops are luon or luon light?

My 7 year old daughter talked her grandmother into buying the Blurred Blossom Pace Setter Skirt...she looks adorable in it!

5:44, who got the skirt, the daughter or the grandmother?

I saw a woman wearing the blurred leggings in my barre class a week ago! I noticed them right away and wondered how she got those so fast! they seemed very thin just to look at. It looked just . . .ok. Then again I'm not a blurred blossom fan. I noticed she was constantly tugging her shirt down to cover her rump. Maybe a bit self concious of the unforgiving see through white magnifying glass pants? lol

I think those pants went straight to markdown because they are totally unflattering. They don't even look good on the mannequin!

That Wild Tech top is kinda cute! I wish it came in a more exciting color though. Definitely not a fan of the blurred blossom crops......ugg. I did purchase the WAFS Fossil define the other day and lurrve it!

Anon 5:28, what area are you in? I'd love to see vinyasa scarves on markdown! I wear the two I have all the time. I'm in SoCal.

The Wild Tech also comes in Rose without the reflectivity pattern in front. It's ok. Not spectacular enough to buy.

Ended up getting the Run: Wild Half Zip in white/fossil/flash, No Limit Tank in concord grape, the Marathon Crop in grape/rose, and the Yoga Camp Crop in white.

Did I miss something......marathon crop??? Do tell!
And the blurred blossom WU look like Pjs.

Shannon said...

i hate the blurried flower pattern....sooooo UGO! and straight outta the 1980's.

@ anon 5:21 - I've noticed all the Scoop neck tanks lately feel much thinner than their Power Y counterparts. It's odd because they are both supposed to be made of regular weight luon.

@ anon 8:35 pm - I agree. The Rose Quartz Run Wild SS tech is not spectacular but I think if you are in the market for a silverescent run shirt this is a nice one. I did get it tonight because I liked the fit a lot and I like purples (the rose is more lilac than rose).

Emily said...

OH my goodness, the blossom blurred WU!!! Are those only in outlets? And, does anyone have any info?

I think I need one of the Run Wild SS shirts. Of course, who knows if my local store will ever get them? We seem to get a lot of things later than everyone else. And not many of them.

I'm actually tempted by the Concord Grape No Limits tank, too, and I've never had an NL tank before. I like my Back on Track tank a lot, which surprised me, so maybe I actually would like an NL tank, too.

@7:42, in NC. Only the herringbone and the soft coal minicheck are on MD. But I love those 2.
