Fit Review! Alala Everyday Hoodie!

Ever since I saw Agent Athletica's review of Alala's Everyday Hoodie, I decided to give it a try myself.  I admit, the price is kind of intimidating.  $145 for a hoodie?  What has this world come to?  I thought Lululemon's price increase last year from $108 to $118 was steep for the Scuba Hoodie.  At least when I lived in NYC I wouldn't get taxed on the Scuba since it was under $110.  But at $118 you get taxed on the whole thing.  Ouch!

Anyway, I decided to pull the trigger and give it a try since I signed up for Orchard Mile, they give you $25 off your first order.  Free shipping and returns is always a plus AND no tax!  I got it for $120 even which is about the same as a Scuba Hoodie.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and size 2 in Scuba Hoodie III.  For the Everyday Hoodie I'm wearing size XS.  The fit is slim but very comfortable.  It's on the thin side which is fine since Hotlanta is currently 90 degrees.  I haven't worn a Scuba in forever here.  This is great for inside air conditioning and if I'm going out at night.  If you're in the northeast like I used to, I would wear this in the mornings on my way to work.  Except this is kind of too nice to wear on the subway lol.

See how nice it fits?  Perfection!  I love the hoodie and the gold details at the end of the hoodie pull strings.  I don't know what they're really called?  The only thing I would nitpick about the hoodie is the zipper.  The zipper feels slightly on the cheap side.  The zipper is smooth but it feels just a bit too plastic when you run it up and down.

The sleeves felt a little tight initially, but after wearing it a bit, I didn't notice it anymore.  I love the thumb holes, they are so much more comfortable than the Scubas.  They don't feel bulky or uncomfortable.  I always thought the Scuba thumbholes were too thick.  

The length of the hoodie actually hits a little bit above my hip.  It doesn't cover the butt completely.   Overall I'm very happy I purchased this.  I think I'll get a lot of use out of it.

The fabric and feel is very soft.  I don't know if it will pill with wear, but I'll update this if it does.  If you're looking for a light weight hoodie, I highly recommend this one.   You can shop for it at Alala's website or Orchard Mile with a $25 discount if you sign up.  If you search online Alala also has coupons you can use 15% off.

Alala- still has all sizes in stock.

Orchard Mile- sold out in XS as of today.

In other news I ordered a pair of Sweaty Betty Navasana Leggings since they're having a huge sale right now!  I got it for 50% off!  I'll post a review of those when I get them.  Tomorrow I have a Lululemon fit review coming up.
