The Latest



Outfit idea - Flare LS Swiftly and coordinating Cashew/Black/Flare Speed Shorts.


Gorgeous Pretty Pink Scuba with the Bordeaux Aphrodite Tank and Low Rider Pant. FYI - the only cold weather store in LA/OC is the South Coast Plaza store. They have all the cold weather stuff now, including Scubas.

Some more Aphrodite photos. Shown with the Low Rider pant in the top photos and Wunder Unders in the other ones.

 Bordeaux Seven Days of Asana bag.



New Heathered Soot Run: Response Shorts. I wish they'd fix the drawstring on the re-designed Run: Response shorts. Apparently, you can't pull them tight enough so they slip down when people run in them. There are numerous complaints on the website about this and my husband tried them on last week and confirmed there is a fit problem in the waist. He has nine pairs (not as many as you think since he goes to the gym or runs six days a week) of these shorts but he won't buy any new ones until this problem is fixed.

Split Pea Scoop Me Up tank and Pigment Studio Pants.

that flare swiftly is really pretty but it's too hard to justify since i have a flash one and the colors are very similar. *sigh* i'll settle for the swiftly flare headband (:

as for the aphrodite tank..i think it's interesting that people think it looks better on someone with a bust. unless your big boobs are *super perky* (maybe like the girl in the middle photo in the pink tank and bd wuc) i don't think it actually flatters a large bust at all...i think you get "droopy boob" in most of the photos i've seen of bustier women. it just seems like it's not supportive/compressive enough that it makes the more endowed look saggy.

It would be nice if we could actully get some of this stuff like the speed shorts...only to have it sold on eBay for 84.99$
So annoying.

Does anyone know what the blue shirt that the guys wearing is called? I like it!

It would be really great if we could actually get some of this stuff. Like the speed shorts. Sold out in 1 hour. Don't they make enough?? Only to have it sold on eBay for 84.99$. So annoying.

I do like those speed shorts and woke up before 5 am EST to find my size gone. luluaddict, do you find that items like this generally show up in stores. No way I'm paying $100 from ebay (shorts + shipping)...Thanks

I agree with Sophia in regards to the aphrodite tank. the girl i the BD one has the saggy boob problem. if she did a down dog in that top she would spill.
That top might work for someone with implants. I tried it on today and it didn't flatter my figure. i ended up buying another engage bra and 2 bang buster head bands, those are great, just finished a workout and it kept my hair out of the way.
Thank LLA for keeping us addicts up to date

I should receive my Pigment Scuba tomorrow! Sooo excited! Will report when I do! The Pink is gorgeous in the photos by I tend to gravitate towards the jewel tones. However, love it with Bordeaux which I unintentionally own 3 pair of BD bottoms now. How did that happen??

Cashew/Black/Flare Speed Shorts, gosh darnit, may have to check my local stores for those. Don't need them but they're a classic combo that would last. I'm a hardcore runner so no problem justifying. I bought 2 new ss in the Spring, 1 so far this fall, guess one more is not too bad.

I like that 'heathered soot' pattern in the men's. Too bad on the Run Response shorts have drawstring issues! I feel badly for the LLL men's. I read the reviews sometimes and LLL really does NOT listen to the men's feedback. Don't they understand that men don't want too much reinvention? They may just want new colours, patterns etc. When they really nail something for the men, in terms of fit, length, cut etc., and are getting rave reviews from the gentlemen, why does LLL not just leave well enough it alone?!

Any pics of the new purple speeds?!?

Sophia- I agree 100% on Aphrodite tank...not flattering on a larger bust. I find many lulu tanks are made for smaller chested women and I typically stick to the crbs and tops worn with sports bras. On another note, really hope we see a Bordeaux scuba!

Groovy Run Shorts have made a return - spotted at the Palm Desert Store.

I think the V-neck on the Aphrodite tank makes the boobs look saggier than they are. For the most part, those photos are of younger women who aren't saggy IRL.

Jen said...

^^Ditto Laura - saw on the PD store page that Groovy runs are back. Got a couple of pairs at SeaWheeze and LOVE these shorts.

I quite like the look of the Aphrodite Tank but I'm worried about the thin straps, it looks like it's another top that's made to wear for one class and then to change out of. It really doesn't look like a tank to wear for 6 to 7 instruction hours.

I have to keep repeating to myself, thin straps dig into your traps, thin straps dig into your traps.

Oh yeah, that and, 'You've spent too much on work clothes already this season!'

LuluAddict said...

@ anonimouse - I know what you mean about thin straps. I have a couple of older tanks called the Spark and Repose and they have these lovely thick straps. They are both lower support but so comfy.

I purchased the Pretty Pink scuba at the Georgetown, DC, store a few days ago. My first scuba, still a bit warm to wear here. I am debating returning it because the color is very ballet pink and reminds me of going to and from ballet classes for many, many years. Not a bad thing but makes me feel really "young." Ha. I love the cashew color on the website but they did not have it in store.

The men's shirt is the cadence tee.

Agree with the straps digging in - my Flow Bra is supportive, but the straps hurt after a long run!



Love the Flare LS Swiftly and coordinating Cashew/Black/Flare Speed Shorts outfit - very cute and functional!

Can anyone let us know if the tonka stripe/flare speed shorts are 2-way or 4-way material ? Thanks !
