Upload! September 14th 2021

 Lots of fall items dropping in today's upload and with that, I guess short season is over. What do we think of the new Align High-Rise 28" Botanical Bloom Anchor? I kinda like the print but do not like the contrasting seams. Very pretty Align T-Shirt Diamond Dye Lunar Rock True Navy but as I recently learned, do not size up! Let me know if there is something you'd like to see a fit review of. So far, nothing for me this week! I placed a fairly large order from Athleta this week. They had their Friends & Family discount over the weekend. Will be posting more reviews shortly!







(These are a nice staple piece for fall.)











(This is really pretty, I don't usually like high collars like that though, but I do find this top runs large.)



(Pretty! If anyone wants to try this stick to your true to size!)

  1. I didn't order anything, but I think the Botanical Bloom Anchor print looks nice. The floral pattern is neutral and pretty.

    1. I took a second look at those leggings and I agree that the contrasting seams ruins the look.

    2. Hi Karen, there is something really pretty about those flowers. Maybe they will release other items without the contrasting seams.

  2. Nothing for me but I do think that floral print aligns is pretty! I have some printed bottoms I never reach for so I'd just stick to solid colors for leggings. I hope they make a petite friendly scuba half/full zip for the holidays! I would love that. Now that I own several of them... I realize they're comfortable but not that flattering... so I'm not buying any more

    1. Yessss I would love a petite version of the Scuba 1/2/Full zips! Now we're talking. I hope they release the Asia fit here soon.

  3. I saw delicate mint in a crb race length so that's the only item I bought this week. Oh and the groove pants nulu since restocked! Tempted by the scuba full zip twill green but nah, I have one Navy and that's GD enough.

    Athleta is here in Canada now! Never ordered from athleta before (only from gap, old Navy, br)... And I wonder about their elation pants! How do they compare to lulu's groove pants? The price point is similar... Any insight would be appreciated!

    1. Hi! Yes super excited for my Canadian readers. To be honest I have never tried Lulu's Groove Pant or Elation Pant because the inseam is not very petite friendly, so I haven't bothered. But Powervita is very similar to Nulu. Between the two Nulu is softer and more buttery. Powervita is still very soft but feels a little thicker and less delicate, and slightly more compressive but still pretty comfortable. If the 29 inch inseam isn't too long for you, I would give the Elation pair a try. I would need a 26 inch inseam and since they're flares, it just won't work for me even if I got them hemmed. The proportions just don't look right. If you get the 20% off coupon, it would be worth it to try Athleta!

    2. Thanks for your detailed reply, Leslie! I think the 29 inch would be perfect for sneakers for me...so I'm interested! I did get a 20% off coupon for signing up for their newsletter but alas, it's only applies to purchases 150 dollars or over. Maybe I'll wait for black Friday :D Also looked at some sweatshirt items but pretty pricey at $89 cdn. I'd only pay that much for a Lulu lol

    3. Smart! Black Friday is right around the corner!
