Happy Friday everyone! I've got an Athleta haul to review for this week's Fit Review Friday.
For reference I'm 4 feet 11 and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms. This is equivalent to a size XXS or PXS in Athleta.
The length hits above the bum. If you're looking for more coverage, this won't be it. The sleeves are long, but not overly so that it bothers me. The oversized hood adds to the cute factor.
If you're looking for a super soft plushy jacket, this is it. The O ring zipper is sturdy but something about it makes it look a little cheap to me. I wish the zipper pull was something other than the O ring. I didn't find the jacket to be flattering on my frame. I think it would work better for someone taller than my 4 feet 11 inches.
Next up we have the Tugga Sherpa Jacket. It looked really cute on the model, but on me not so much. It looks very boxy and shapeless. Usually black works well on me, but not in this jacket. This is a size PXS, but the proportions are just off.

The sherpa feels very soft to touch. The jacket looks better from the side, but from the front it just doesn't work. I think it's a little too cropped and a little too wide. It is possible that the regular size XXS might be more flattering.
The high neck collar when zipped up with definitely keep you warm. The sleeves have a long wrist cuff. I'm not 100% sold on that. It looks a little weird to me. This jacket gets amazing reviews though. It's just not for me.
Last, I have the Elation Ultra Hi-Rise Shimmer Tight in antique burgundy. I was pretty excited to try these since they came in petite and the 24 inch length is perfect. The ankles fit as they should! How exciting is that?
The powervita fabric didn't feel as soft because of the shimmer effect. It actually feels a little bit scratchy if I'm being honest. However, they really do look sleek and makes me feel like a million bucks. The waistband is high, but hits my belly button. They fit snug, but not overly tight. The comfort is still there. I think if the fabric didn't feel scratchy I would have kept these. But after my recent Werkshop purchase, these did not feel quite as nice.

Even though none of the items worked out for me this time, I still think Athleta is worth checking out. These new items have piqued my interest, especially the Inclination Moto Leggings. They remind me of the alo yoga ones I tried on but returned because the length was insanely long.
(I want to try this... but I don't need another hoodie!)
In other news, I noticed a lot of new items on WMTM. Here are my picks.
($69! Amazing price)
That's it for me! Hope you all have a great weekend!
