what the fuck is that scarf
Why does she have a baby blanket around her neck?
After a drought, I cannot get enough of the limitless blue!!! Still hoping the toasty tech comes out in it too.
Lol Sophia. I was thinking the exact same thing!!!!! Bahahahahaha!!!!!
Nice! I was honestly thinking the same thing. LOL
Yeah, you might as well wear a small blanket aroun your neck I stead of that scarf! I bet it would be cheaper anyway!
Does everybody find the mittens look like oven mittens ? I bought the black ones and find them cute and practical. Just HATE the price: 48$ !! Don't know if I will keep them.
Yeah... the scarf does look like a baby blanket !! haha !
The mittens look just like mittens to me, but I live in Canada and at certain times of the year the sub zero temperatures can mean that frost bit sets in after 10 minutes. If they keep the hands warm, they're doin' it right!
I tried the vest on in the store today. I found the zipper kinda sticky and difficult. I am rather glad I didn't like it considering the outrageous price. I am positive I didn't pay that much for my turnaround vest last year.
Eeeeekkkk! I love that chevron bag! But I saw the WTF pullover in polar cream today and honestly I thought the colour was really mucousy/body fluidy... It's a bad colour I think...
Did they just sneak upload new colors of the Back Burner tank? I'm pretty sure the other colors weren't there last Thursday when I ordered online.
The mittens do look like oven mits. I picked up the cheveron tote the other night. I never seem to have room in my gym bag to put all my wet towels and clothes back in after a workout. I got this bag for that purpose and it is working out great.I like the vest put I can't justify paying $198 when many super cute $99 vests are available from lots of retailers.
Can't stand any of this new fluff-wear and all the crap that goes with it. It's all super fugly!!!
hi, I left a post, which you site now reviews. All I wanted to know was if anyone saw a particular item. It never posted - I guess it was in appropriate to ask about products!!!! Yet, now I see posting someones opinion regarding the Fluff Scarf using profanity is acceptable for LULADDict to post!!!
As hard as I try I just cannot get into any of this winter stuff...and I need some winter running gear! I keep looking at this line and trying to convince myself it's not that bad but I really don't like anything about it-colour, design and especially price!! I am desperately on the hunt for last years Apres Run Pullover...I wish I had stocked up on more items last year.
@ anon 5:10 am - There was one day a few days ago where I accidentally deleted a group of comments instead of posting it so I apologize if your comments was in there. I usually post every comment made unless it's something inane like "?" or "embrace the CT"
in regards to the scarf it's very ugly!! :( Im buying a Burberry checked scarf instead! Much nicer!!-Sara
I noticed this also. I often make comments and there's nothing wrong with what I said and the comments AREN'T posted! makes me want to leave this blog, cause its frustrating.... :( Dough!-Disp. Income girl
i actually like a few of the what the fluff items but i do want to know if they are actually warm. not 'sort of' warm but actually functional for cold canadian temperatures.anyone? im thinking the -20 to -30 range, celsius.
The Turn Around Vest was $128 last year. It was my first LLL purchase. I love it and get compliments every time I wear it. I wish their quality and prices could go back to last year.
There was a ninja upload of more colors in the Back Burner and Elongate tanks, for those of you who were waiting on the raspberry glo versions.
Hey LLA and others -- OT, but has anyone heard anything re whether we will see the return of the Cuddle Up this year? And if so, whether they will be redesigned like the new scubas? im living in mine and would love to add more to that collection!
Went to the store to try on the gloves, but at 48$ frankly it is not really justifiable for me. Way too expensive. And I totally agree about that scarf - Baby blanket all the way :)
@Anon 6:25, I am totally with you. I really really need some more winter running pullovers but I just am not loving anything, colors or design. I keep looking at the Toasty Tech pullover and doing the "it's not that blah" but I just can't make myself pull the trigger because for that amount of money I need to LOVE it. I definitely wish I had gotten more last year, too. Maybe they'll come out with something in a few weeks we can love.
@ anon 6:25 -- I, too, have been waiting for this year's Apres Run Pullover (I have them from the last two years and live in them post-workout) -- if you are petite, iVivva has one called the "Hooked on Beats" pullover, and it's basically the same thing, just without the ruched forearms. I've found their size 14 to be about the equivalent of what a lulu size 5 would be if it existed -- somewhere between a 4 and 6. FWIW...Also missing the Cuddle Up, @ anon 7:26. But both these items are usually released by now...:(
Seriously underwhelmed Lululemon! What's going on?! Bring back the stuff that's practical and sells at prices that don't totally turn us away! The Turn Around shirts, etc! I own a ton of LL and I am lately very discouraged. New Designers and Product Development maybe?! Can't wear the Scubas - - too short now, and the Strides are gone. What's next - - CRBs and Run Inspires? Sorry - - just needed to rant.
One additional comment...When did colorblocking come back?! Ugly!
Anon 6:52 - I am in Canada too - and understand cold. IMO the Fluff line is not suitable for the cold if the use is casual. I have the Turn Around vest and pullover from last year and wear them more for casual. I get chilled in the areas where there is Rulu and not down. And of course that is the design intent - to vent and cool. Sorry I can't give you feedback on use during exercise in the cold. IMO I don't think down is the best material for sweaty activities - doesn't wick, clumps up when wet and loses insulating value. I prefer fleece since I am the hot and very sweaty type of person even in freezing temperatures. I thought I would also share my experience with the Gust Buster vest given the asymmetrical style zipper is similar to the Fluff vest. When zipped the zipper is fine and it is nice not to have the zip right at your chin. However, unzipped the vest it is a real bother wacking me in the face and flapping around while running. The solution is to fold or tuck the flap inside the vest. I do that on both sides. Not sure if it looks cool but not an issue for me as I run solo on the mountain trails with no witnesses but the bears.
I wouldn't flip out about that, I posted a while back and it never got posted, then I read that LLA had accidentally deleted a few post and she apologized for that. I don't think she didn't post your comment on purpose.
Do not like the fluff stuff. It's not flattering, expensive and ugly. Not impressed at all.
I think that the Pitter Patter Pullover makes the chest area look funny. Otherwise, I like it.
What a bunch of cry babies...really? Try keeping up a blog for years and years and years about the same damn subject and let me know how it goes for you! Seriously. You have no idea the time and effort that goes into posting regularly, not to mention trying to filter out the crazies! Don't be one of them! Good God. And got over the word "fuck".On a different subject. Love Red WU's? Completely see thru. If I see anybody keeping/wearing these they are out of their mind crazy for the label, or they "love red" or they love showing their ass (and other personal details).The only reason why that stupid chevron bag is flying off the shelves is because it's less than $50 bucks.$150-$300 for a truly good quality down product is nothing compared to Patagonia and other brands...they key is "good quality".I still love some of Lulu's products, but I'm no longer wearing rose colored glasses....or love red for that matter.Thank you LuluAddict for all the time, energy and love you put into keeping this blog going. I appreciate the entertainment! It's better that Housewives! lol! (man, I've got to get a life! lol)
all i keep thinking is i can't stand those duck but hemlines- they are not flattering at all! they are horrible! I won't buy anything- other brands included w/ this aweful siloutte! It's so 80's they did that hemline back then on regular cloths and its just BAD wow lulu is starting to loose me w/ the move to yuky 4-way stretch on thier speed shorts- then the scuba change and now this aweful hemline! I hardly purchase anything anymore- about the jackets- i go w/ northface, pategonia, rei etc. thats where you get jackets that are tried and true- and the price is worth it since they are durable and last forever! Lulu's are okay but not built well- perhaps w/ some experience they'll get better in that dept? who knows but the prices for the quality are outrageous!
I keeping wondering about washing the wtf line and I think that I'm just going to buy icebreaker stuff instead. That will work prob better than the wtf stuff and is washable. Dunno about everyone but I'm a gross sweaty and my stuff usually gets one or 2 wears before it hits the laundry so practically speaking, I just can't afford the wtf stuff. WTF!!!
+1 for Icebreaker.layers beautifully, warm as anything and wicks sweat like a dream. I wear the short sleeves thoughout summer and for racing, they are beyond comfortable. 100 percent merino, yes but spun soft as silk. sometimes you wouldn't know it was wool.There are many things that lululemon do very, very well and drew me to the brand originally- but cold weather gear (including water proof/water resistant) isn't one if them.
Got the red Downtown Puffy as my fall jacket - but worried something cuter might come out...no worries here. All the latest jackets are so...busy and complicated. It's similar to what I dislike about the color blocking. Someone said the color blocking looks like they had extra fabric they just sewed on. I feel the same way about all these additional features on these jackets - looks like extra material they just tacked on to jack up the price.
I LOVE the Post Savasana bag!!!If anyone is wondering, the material is shiny, the strap is adjustable and removable (great for using during yoga when you can't quite get into a stretching pose!)... The pockets on the outside are big and the zippered pouch inside is great too. The bag is big! Today I fit my phone, wallet, water etc in the outside pockets, and my Scuba and yoga mat inside with tons of room to spare. I can't say enough about this bag. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I ordered it in the Chevron print, but I saw the blue one today and its stunning! Great Christmas present!
For a puffer, I bought the classic down jacket from Eddie Bauer on sale for less than $70 and it rocks!
Just got my black swan unders in the mail and they are sparkly Luon--is this how they all are or a mistake?
Anon 6:22pm - How warm do you find the Downtown Puffy jacket? I am looking for a down jacket to take on a hiking trip where it is going to be 0*C to 10*C at night. Do you think it would be warm enough (with shirt and fleece/Rulu pullover under it as well)?
Just tried on the What the Fluff jacket this weekend and I love it.It was very comfortable and gave me lots of range of motion. I also loved the detachable hood and the fact that it had the bottom flap. I was wearing Wunder Unders when I tried the jacket on and I thought the flap was a great extra feature for covering up my butt!Thanks LLA for all the hard work, you brighten my day!
Lulu is supposed to make workout apparel that makes anyone look good, and yet most of these sz 0-4 models look terrible. Also, the product looks cheap and uninteresting. I'll stick to the warm weather stuff.
Just went to the Icebreaker store in union square, san francisco. Where was this brand all my life?! Something about them just felt so much classier than LLL, which in my opinion is getting very played out in this area. I now strictly limit my lulu items to the gym.
The baby blanket comment is killing me.I actually really like the 4 way stretch material for the run speed shorts I just got the love red and gray ones and I am loving them, can't take them off. I am waiting for the WUC I hope it is not as sheer as people are describing. I haven't bought a WUC since they changed the gusset. M
I got my Ear warmer in the mail (the pink/black reversable) it is so frickin cute! And practical, who doesn't like toasty ears :)
@anon 3:34 - i'm not anon 6:22, and i don't actually own a downtown jacket, but i can tell you without hesitation that it is NOT the jacket you want to bring with you on your trip. i've done lots of backpacking - i recently did a 23-day hike through the high sierra, and i climb lots of cold, snowy mountains. plus, i work as an outdoor guide. so i can say without hesitation that you don't want that jacket. remember that you'll be carrying everything on your trip, and the lighter you can go the better. you want something super warm (0 is COLD at night) and super light - which means HIGH QUALITY DOWN. don't believe what lulu says about the fill power of it's down - there is no way in hell it is 800 fill (or else they're really not filling it at all - though i think they only claim that the downtown jacket is 650 anyway). you want an 800+ fill jacket...one that can pack down really small and is LIGHT. i love the patagonia down sweater, i get the hooded one. another jacket i love is the first ascent downlight sweater (first ascent is the technical moutaineering line made by eddie bauer). with black friday coming up, i guaruntee you can get a really good deal on one of these - EB always has nice BF sales. both patagonia and first ascent have limetime, unconditional love-it-or-return-it guaruntees. so no risk. i can also recommen mont-bell...they have a nice down jacket that is super light. the north face, marmot, and rab also make some light, stylish down jackets that i would recommend. you'll want something that is in the 6-12 oz range in terms of weight. if it's heavier than this, it's probably parka weight (too much), less than this, and you'll probably be cold (the patagonia ultralight down shirt is around 3oz, and works for a lot of guys, but i know that i freeze in it at those temps). hope this helps, and enjoy your trip!
