Fit Review! Alo Yoga Athena Moto Leggings

With all the friends & family sales going on I couldn't resist snapping up a pair of these Alo Yoga Moto Leggings.  These are priced at $110 but with the F&F discount I got them for $83.50 plus tax.  I personally love motorcycle inspired clothing.  I have a couple of motorcycle leather jackets and these leggings definitely fit the theme.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and wear size 4 in Lululemon bottoms.  These Alo Yoga leggings I'm wearing are a size XS and similar to size 4 in Lululemon Wunder Unders.  If you're a size 2 in Lululemon bottoms, these do come in XXS.


These are mid rise and sit right under my belly button.  The waist band on these are nicely wide and there's a small hidden pocket at the top of the waist band to fit your key and cards.  The fabric reminds me of luon and has a bit of stretch to them.  If mid-rise isn't for you, these also come in a high waisted version.


These are fitted all the way through with a small opening at the ankles.  I knew going in these would be super long on me and they do bunch but I'm used to that and if I wear these out casually, I would pair them with a pair of black boots.  Although these also work well with my Nikes.  


Here's a close up of the panel detailing.  It's a good mix of matte and glossy fabric with some mesh panels under my knee and on the back of my calves.  I did the bend over test and these passed for me which I'm very happy about. I was surprised because I read a few reviews where people complained these were thin and see-through.  Not the case for me.  I would say these have very low compression.  


 In this photos I'm pointing to a seam that goes right across my knee cap.  Kind of hard to see because the photos are so dark but that's my only complaint.  For all of those out here who are 5 feet tall can you let me know if this seam bothers you?  I've walked around my apartment in them for a little bit and sometimes it's noticeable and sometimes it's not.  I'm just unsure if this would bother me if I'm walking around all day.


If black isn't your color, Nordstrom carries these in green, navy, orange and white.  Bloomingdales carries a high rise version in gray.  If I end up keeping these and like them, I would probably consider getting them in gray.  Currently Bloomingdales sold out of the one I bought in all sizes.  


Overall I'm leaning towards keeping these.  What do you guys think?  Would love to get some feedback about the seam at the knee.

    1. No. not yet. I was afraid to get a pair. I thought they will be too long on me. But since they loom damn good on you, i really need to give it a try!! They look really good on you more than any other leggings.

    2. WOW thank you! Now I'm definitely going to keep them. I'm just worried about the seam that goes across the knee. It doesn't bother me that much but I wonder if I walked a lot in them if they would. If you're taller than me, they should be fine. I'm just on the very short side.

    1. Thank you so much! I have an airbrush pair with the flowers going up the side that are a little sheer. I would say maybe 15% sheer. Not too bad though. I still wear them and like them a lot. These are definitely better.

Review! Lululemon Double Strap Face Mask

  Update- I have an another review for the Ear Loop Face Mask  version. Hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend. I have tons of reviews coming up, but first I need to cover the Lululemon Double Strap Face Mask. It's currently sold out, but I do expect them to restock at some point.  Before we get into it, let's take a look at the mask by itself.  First of all, this is a not a medical-grade mask and has only a single layer. There is no pocket for a filter, and it's not lined. The material feels like my In Alignment bra  to be honest. It's very soft and pliable. Instead of ear loops, which is what I've grown accustomed to for all my masks, this one has a double strap that you adjust to your head. They're very similar to adjustable bra straps.   The inside has a very thick seam running down the middle of the mask along with a nose piece. There is no wire for the nose. By the way, I bought two masks, one for me and one for my husband. It's too small for my husb

Fit Review! Aritzia TNA Super Puff Shorty & The Little Fuzzy Puff

  Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend! I loved doing nothing for a few days. I got to relax and spent quality time with my furkids and husband. I also took a ton of photos - so I guess not all of it was doing nothing! This year I wanted to replace a few of my winter jackets. It took me a long time to find new coats but I think I finally found two winners! Both jackets are TNA - which stands for Talula National Athletics which is a Aritzia clothing brand. For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops. Here I am trying on size small and XS in TNA/Aritzia. This is the first time I'm trying this brand. The Little Fuzzy Puff  Stone Taupe Size Small What drew me to the Little Fuzzy Puff is the inside fleece lining. It is super soft and cozy. The fleece lining is only on the hood and body of the jacket. This jacket is water resistant and wind resistant. It's also very light weight and packable. The fabric on the outside is very soft, similar to the

Review! Everywhere Belt Bag

Happy Mother's Day to all those who celebrate it. Even fur moms deserve a little something on this holiday. I usually go back to New York for Mother's Day and this is the first year that I haven't been able to do so because of the pandemic. I did FaceTime my mom and grandma today, it's always nice to be able to "see" them. It's so much better than just talking on the phone.  Today I have a review of what I like to call my pandemic bag. I haven't used one of my high end designer bags since this whole thing began a couple of months ago. I am just a little concerned with everything coming in and out of the house these days and prefer to use something I can easily wipe down or throw in the washing machine. Which is why I purchased Lululemon's Everywhere Belt Bag .  For reference I'm 4 feet 11 on a good day. I'm usually a size 4 in tops and bottoms.
