More of the Latest


I really love the look of the May Wee Are From Space (WAFS) print in the Excel crops. The bottom photo is my favorite. I hope a Cool Racerback is coming in this color.

Menthol Silver Bullet tank with the May WAFS Excel crops - love this combo!

The Porcelaine Swiftly headband was calling my name at the store yesterday. I resisted since I have a ton of these already.

Outfit idea - Blush Quartz Tame Me Tank with matching Porcelaine/Blush Run in the Sun Shorts. Hmm, the shorts are doing something odd in the back in this photo. Better check for that in the store/at home.

The Flash/Dune Wee Stripe Daily tank. If this color comes in a CRB I'd consider getting it. I like the muted version of Flash.

I like this outfit, too - Fossil Scoop Neck with white bottoms. I like the touch of Beachy Floral on this tank. An entire tank with this print is pretty overwhelming.

Run in the Sun crops with a May WAFS waistband.

This top looks ok if you wear it over-sized.

Not loving the porcelain, menthol WAFS like I thought I would... I guess we'll see what the crb ends up looking like. I wish it had white stripes instead of black. The black makes the color look drab and dull.

I would really really really love a May WAFS jacket...like a define or an in stride. I might cave and get some pants though...not sure what ones yet

Unknown said...

can't wait for the May WAFS CRB or perhaps a Power Y. Love the green and blue. Hopefully available next week... !! And a Stride jacket would be beautiful too.

When will they shorten the straps on the daily tank so I can actually buy and workout in it??? So annoying the straps fall off and I had to return it.

I got my daily tank straps altered they only took off a little bit but it makes the world of difference

I am not loving the ruffle along the bottom of the run in the sun shirts. Is it for extra coverage? Not sure.

^ditto on the weird ruffle thing...it looks ridiculous and ruins what would be some great tops otherwise. I don't get it.

Love the menthol WAFS! I would buy a Stride/In Stride or Define (preferred) in it in a nanosecond. Also full length WU or grooves. Lovelovelove. TaTa Tamer, too. CRB...Scoop Neck...Cinch Dress...Active Strength.... Hoping for a bonanza. I have not liked any of the colors lately except the white denim and this.

I did not think I would like the ruffle either, but I ended up buying both LS versions in white because I liked them both I couldn't decide! The ruffle...this is why I like it....

I bought three colors last year, the white, the pink and the toothpaste, (? some greeny minty color) and they are great (except not happy how the white turned dingy right away, which is why I had to buy white again...I know, I know, why buy it again? Because I like white!) but they look like "regular" shirts, which is fine, but...the ruffle gives a "regular" shirt a bit of oomph, and it's actually cute. If you get the right size it hangs nicely down the backside and makes it a little "flirty". But that's just my opinion....still have the tags on, not sure I need two!

As far as the question about why buy and wear a black one. sometimes you have to go out in overcast weather, or at the beach in overcast, so it's cold, but you can get burned really badly. The LS with the hood is especially cute when the sun (and heat) is covered by clouds but you still need protection and if it's windy I can see the hood coming in handy.

OT I tried on the maxi dress too in black only because all of the educators were wearing it and it appeared cute. I wore a black Arise (?) bra underneath and the black on black looked really classy I have to say. But at the end of the day I'm not going to wear it and it was not a good value for my money. I'm not planning any regular beach trips to use it as a coverup, but mostly the fit was just "off" enough. Low armholes and thin (but soft and nice) fabric makes it too revealing and not wearable for casual living, like going out to dinner or lunch imo. The back cross-over straps did not lay down right and I thought of the three educators wearing it all had different fit problems, but fit problems none the less.

bought the multi may Excel banded crops, the grey beachy floral crops, returned the flash/dune WU crops and SS black rashguard I bought online last week. All that in addition to the Ebb and Flows I ordered this morning I need a break!

Thanks for the feedback about the LS sunblocker and maxi dress Anon @ 4:39 pm!

Also OT, but wanted to share: I picked-up the Beachy Floral CRB in Porcelain Blue today at my local store. The print is very summery and cute in person, but I found the CRB to be slightly scratchy (similar to the Heathered Concord that I ended up returning). Also, it's 94% Polyester, so I'm worried I'll overheat while working out. Fit is TTS on this CRB (I personally found the Heathered Menthol to run a little small as a comparison). Not 100% sure that I'll keep this CRB, but it's very tempting bc it's so darn cute!

Lastly, I saw the Electric Orange and Wish Blue Multi-Poncho Stripe boogie shorts in person. So curious about what's to come (if anything else?) in these colors. Agree it's VERY strange to see these colors make another curtain call. The GEC did confirm that the WBMPS is the same pattern we saw ~1.5 years ago (pls note however, I forgot to check the product tags to confirm the color codes and although these were available in the store, they weren't in the PN I received from the store today). I totally want to bring my Power-Y in the WBMPS for a comparison, but that would be just crazy, right;)?

I absolutely love the ruffle

You know, I was skeptical about the ruffle, too, until I saw it in person. It's actually really cute. It makes the top just look a little bit more...I don't know, special, somehow.

As for the maxi dress, I got my first in-person look at them today. Ugh. The price they are charging for them is absolutely ridiculous.

I tried the LS sunblocker last night and was surprised how cute it looked. I did have to size down.
I was looking for something to wear in the sun and cover my arms. My only complaint is that white and blush quartz are totally see through. You would have to wear another shirt under it. The shirt is for summer running...who wants to wear a sports bra, a tank and a LS sunblocker ?
I purchased it in blue.

Focus said...

I love the ruffle, but sadly missed my shot at a LS white. My store had 1 left last evening, was going to make a trip this morning if it is still available when they open... Fingers crossed!

And OT again- menthol crbs this AM back online in a few sizes...snagged that! Yay!

Focus said...

Sizes in Menthol crb 4,6,8 and 10

Why does Canada have so much better stuff in the WMTM - lucky ducks! The Travel to Track jacket moved WMTM quick....

Anonymous said...

Focus, you are on top of things, aren't you! lol I agree, I commented earlier on buying the two LS SB in white and I forgot to mention that I actually sized down two sizes because I like them snug....so two sizes down will be snug, one size down would be fitted and your regular size, imo, will probably look like this last picture, a little loose.

I like that the fabric is sheer, that's why I did not buy the black or the blue. I would buy black if it was solid black, personally I did't care for the heathered black fabric, and I already have pink from last year.

Focus said...

Thanks Anon 4:37! I recall the mention of sizing down. That might help my cause since I only inquired about the availability of my size (6) at the store, maybe I'll call the store to see if they have some in size 4. Thank you for the reminder! I'm encouraged.

And I must just say to LLA, I thought my addiction to Lulu might start to subside (my wallet was hopeful), but it hasn't. This blog is amazing! I can't shake the hook:) Thank you for all of your hard work and time! Truly appreciated!!!

You're not wrong about there being good stuff in the Canadian WMTM. Hanging for an Inkblot Scuba at a discount rate, not long now, surely!
And Travel to Track got knocked down fast! Wonder if someone got their butt kicked for that epic fail ?

I'm not a ruffle fan but was gonna get the LS white SB. It went away quickly so no go for me. It seems slightly juvenile to wear ruffles. I just don't care for it. The maxi dress is I'll fitting and over priced to boot. Since I did mot expect this from lulu I am well stocked with maxis for this Texas weather. Bought some ebb and flows and all color tame me tanks. Thanks for the heads up LLA.

The wmtm Canadian side is fantastic. Totally want the swiftly ls and ss as well as then scuba pillow. I have never seen the scuba pillow on the American side and am very intrigued by it. Anyone have one? What did you think?

I have been waiting for the blurred blossom travel to track jacket to make it to WMTM. But, now I'm scared to pull the trigger with no possibility of return. Does anyone love their TTT jacket?

Anonymous said...

I have been waiting for the inkblot scuba to go to WMTM too!! I actually bought it full price, loved it but had to return it. I could not justify the price (i was buying too much).

DebbieTurko said...

Just got my Ebb and Flow crops that I ordered on Saturday from the Canadian side , I ordered the indigo ones and they almost look like purple, and the material feels a little different them my other 2 pairs ( black one and grey ones ) that i ordered the first time round. They feel slightly thicker and fit slightly bigger. Any one else receive theirs yet and see a difference? I will be wearing them running and to kick boxing tonight so I will see if there is difference.

I thought the Sunblocker tops were going to be hideous with the ruffle but I was surprised to see how cute they really are and flattering! I got compliments in the dressing room from three other customers! I had the white pullover. The LS looked great too. These are definitely one size down tops. I felt the pullover was body skimming and the LS was fitted in one size down. I got the white and pink pullover. I ordered the blue pullover online. Would like to keep two and now reading white gets dingy.... I do not mind the white and pink being see through in this top, either.

I got the black scuba pillow maybe last year on the US site - it's been a while and was my first scuba purchase. It's thicker and not as soft as another SE scuba I have. It also fits snug and does a great job of blocking the wind when cold. I got it for travel b/c of the pillow.

I think the inkblot scuba has already come and gone on the WMTM US site.

I can't wait for those May WAFS crops to either go online or come to a store near me....so cute!!!! LULU has definitely been depleting my account lately! <3
