Reviews for Vinyasa Scarf Fleece, Scuba Hoodie III, Free To Be Wild Bra, Athleta Icecap Vest

Thanks to 2 day shipping, I received my order on Christmas Eve in a giant Lululemon box.  I've never ordered so much before that they had to send it in a box and not one of their shipping envelopes.  They also sent me a Lululemon black shopping tote that reminds me a lot like Tumi. Clockwise from the top- Free to Be Wild Bra in Static Mist, Vinyasa Scarf Fleece in Flashback Static Tender Violet, Scuba Hoodie III in Static Mist, Scuba Hoodie III in Star Pixel Raspberry. I'm returning the FTBW bra.  The splotches of gray on the left side just makes the bra look dirty.  Not a fan!   The Vinyasa Scarf is unfortunately very stiff.  It is very similar to the velour version.  Thick and not comfortable around my neck.  Also returning.  I noticed the website now labels it as Cotton instead of Fleece.  It's on sale and still not worth the $39 price.   I apologize for the craptastic photos!  The apartment is a mess.  This is the Scuba Hoodie III in Star Pix

Store Visit Today Sapphire Blue Swiftly SS, High Times Pant Tender Violet, Rebel Runner Crop, Toasty Tech Tights

This was a very dangerous visit today.  Lots of new things to try on.  I think I went in with 10 items.   I was in that fitting room for a long long time. First up are the new Sapphire Blue in the Swiftly SS.  I love how soft the material felt and the blue is a very dark navy blue.  It's not as bright as I hoped, but I liked it enough to take it home.  $58.  Ouch!  But I already took it for a run and I'm pretty happy with the purchase.  It is my first Swiftly SS.  I would get more if there were other colors that interested me.  For reference I'm a size 4 in Swiftly tanks and tees.  I also wanted to try the long sleeve version as well, but the store didn't have a size 4.  Bummer. Love my neon green socks, don't you?  =) I'm also wearing the High Times Pant in the Space Dye Tender Violet in size 4.  These fit amazingly well and oh so soft.  I really want them but I don't think I could wear these out casually.  $98 for lounge pants kind of hurts.

Here are my picks for this week.  Lots of new goodies.  Sapphire in the swiftly LS & SL.  The Tender Violet high times and we finally get some Black Grape products! Swiftly LS in Heathered Sapphire Blue Swiftly SS in Heathered Sapphire Blue I don't have any long sleeve or short sleeve swiftly tops but now I might want to try.  I only buy the tanks usually.  But this I'm curious to see if my short body can pull it off.  I'll go to the store tomorrow and hopefully they'll have these in. Cool Racerback Raspberry Glo Light (I love anything pink!) Cool Racerback Heathered Bordeaux Drama (I might need this!) Toasty Tech Tight II in Black Grape (I love these and may have to try these on) High Times Pant in Space Dye Tender Violet.  (If I'm getting these pants I want the matching Vinyasa too!) Vinyasa Scarf in Space Dye Tender Violet Base Runner Pant in Black Grape Speed Tight IV Rulu in Mini Check Pique

Store Visit Today Fit Review for Tender Violet Down For A Run Vest, Down For A Run Jacket, Vinyasa, Speed Tight IV

First up, Tender Violet Down For A Run Jacket.  I love this color so much I wanted to give it another try, but sadly the back of the jacket is just too long on me.  The front looks fantastic, but the back just kills it for me.  I love the new Vinyasa scarf too.  Wish I knew what the name of the color was!  The jacket is a size 2.  I feel it is true to size.  Some people are put off by the contrasting panels but I don't mind it.   The dip on the butt just looks off.   New Vinyasa, super cute.  I might go back for it. The vest fit me better in a size 4.  The 2 was just too suffocating.  The back was not as long as the jacket on me, but I still left it behind since I don't have much use for vests.  If you're interested in the vest in this style, I suggest size up. These are the herringbone Speed Tights.  At first glance they're very long on me, but since the bottom scrunches up a bit it they're passable on m
