I went to a couple of Lululemon's over the weekend. I was looking for a few things to try on in person. One of the items was the Define Jacket Exhale edition in red grape. I have the regular define in bordeaux drama with some laser cut holes in the back and thought if I liked the new version better I would sell my old one. Fortunately the new Define Jacket did not meet my expectations.
Define Jacket Exhale in Red Grape Size 4
I took my usual size 4 in Defines, but this one was noticeably lumpy. The pockets have seams across them and when I zipped up the jacket you can see the seams very clearly. I did not like this at all. They also made the stripe going across the top part of the chest thinner. You can see it in the above photo. That also doesn't appeal to me.
The fit also seems to be tighter than my other Define Jackets. I definitely prefer my older Define Jackets. I think I may be done buying another more of these jackets. The quality has definitely gone down while the price has gone up. This one in particular is $128 + tax. Easy pass.
Shown here are the Wunder Under Crops in Kara Blossom
I wanted to also try on the WU in kara blossom again. This time I tried on the size 4 and 6. It seems like these are made out of some kind of denim blend which makes them less stretchy than usual. I'm usually a 4, but in these they seems super tight. I tried the 6, and those were too loose.
Wunder Under in Kara Blossom
I have to pass these up. It's too bad because the print is awesome. I also picked up this cute cap. I'm not usually a cap kind of person, but with all the sun I'm getting in Atlanta, I can use the shade.
Race To Pace Run Hat in Blooming Pixie White
And lastly, I found the Precision Jacket in chain link lilac deep zinfandel, which I've been lusting over since Canada got it a few weeks ago. But my usual size 4 was SUPER tight on me!
I was in a rush so I didn't grab the size 6 to see if that would have been a better fit. I'm almost never a size 6, I don't think I have any Lulu in a 6 because it is usually too big in the arms and chest and the sleeves are always super long. But next time I'm at the store I'll try on the 6 to see.
Back is super tightly stretched =(
I love the zipper detail!
The quality of this jacket looks amazing. I love all the details. At $118 I think I would have shelled out the money if it fit me. The color is gorgeous in person. The lighting in the fitting room is dark, so you can't see all the gorgeous purpleness in the jacket! I may be back at the mall this Wednesday, so I'll let you know what happens!
