Store Report ~ Tried On The Solace Jacket

Well I came home empty handed today which made me feel a touch sad considering it’s Valentines Day, it’s pouring rain and I got soaked in order to get myself to the store thinking I’d find something on my *need* list but it was not meant to be today. I tried on the Solace Jacket and found it ran small, probably more so because it’s meant to be a fitted jacket. I think it will look best on petite figures with smaller busts. I found the arms where quite fitted and the chest area was snug so I had to fuss with the zipper to get it closed and it just wasn’t a very graceful type of jacket to close. As you can see in the picture below it’s a short, sort of angled zip.  It wasn’t at all ill fitting or snug in bad way necessarily, I just think it’s more suited to smaller chest, narrow hipped, long legged lucky ladies. If you don’t fall in this category, still try it on but grab a few sizes to see which works best for you.

There were new items in the run line today including this Pace Setter LS which had a lot of color blocking, made of running luon and has a boat neck. I think it was priced at $78 which didn’t strike me as a bad price for something with so much circle mesh paneling. I also saw it in solid black as well as this static coal color. There was also a pretty Pace Setter vest made of glide in Sprinkler but it was a pass because the pockets where very shallow and non zip up and there was just one strip of reflective detail on the back. If I’m going to wear a vest running I want it to have good deep pockets that zip up for my cell phone, Ipod and id and other things I like to carry with me. (ok I carry bear spray with me when I run. So what). And also I want reflectivity all over the place.

Pace Setter Crops. These are low rise, longer length crops with ruching at the bottom around the calf. I didn’t see any reflective detailing so it was a pass for me. 

Sprinkler Run Swiftly LS (also came in Flush). Tried this on today as I’m in want of a second LS but I just didn’t love this color on me. 

Get Focused Tank, made of luon. Very cute tank if you like a looser around the tummy fit and a more modest bust. I also saw the new No Limit Tanks. Flush/Flush, Sprinkler/Ikat, Coal/Coal Strata Stripe. The Distance Tank in Lilac Snow Cone was very, very cute in person. That went on my maybe list. It’s pretty close to pig pink only paler with a touch of lilac. Also spotted were Sprinkler Scuba (solid) and Flush Scuba (solid).
