What did you guys order today?
I caved and joined the bandwagon and got the Black Swan Cuddle Up. It was a moment of weakness and poor impulse control and I had not planned on getting one at all. I didn’t even try one on in store when I saw them since I didn’t want to be swayed despite the fact that I love the Black Swan, Ghost and Lilac a lot. I just didn’t feel like I *needed* one since I have two scubas from this year already and I also had trouble deciding which one is prettiest and was to overwhelmed to try one on. What made me get one was the heathered black swan is such a pretty color. I don’t plan on getting any tanks in this color or any other jackets and I’d be sad later I think, especially since this one is a Heathered Black Swan and not just Black Swan and the contrast stitching is so pretty. I also heard on facebook that the Cuddle Ups this year are softer than last years and as soft and stretchy as the Snowy Owl Scuba that everyone loved. Ah well, I’ll decide if I’m keeping it later.
Love this photo of the Cuddle Up. It’s what made me decide I liked this color best.
Another hot seller today were these Dog Runner Pants. Besides my love for them I’ve heard a lot of other great reviews for them. Running luon liner = whats not to love. I just find these so flattering on and a great luon pants and jeans alternative. I wish I’d seen the Deep Coal ones in store, I would have likely gone with those over the black since I prefer the less obviously a track pant color. Also, I tried out the ‘Chat Live’ option today to see if these come in a 12 in any store location. They weren’t uploaded in a 12 and most of my product alerts only went up to size 10 and the chat live confirmed that they don’t come in a 12 at all for some bizarre reason. I’m having weird fit issues with pants lately so would have tried out the 12 for more thigh and butt room. While my waist has gotten smaller from Crossfit my thighs have bulked up a bit from the squats and my butt is..um..perkier and more prominent. Much firmer but seems bigger. This is a problem with pants now and so I’ll be selling my size 8 Raw Blue Dance Studio Pants if anybody is interested. The 10 in the Dog Runners is the right size for me but slightly snugger than 10 DSP’s. Not a full size up item but maybe a 1/4 smaller? I love the waist though. No muffin top which I love.
I think this is how relaxed they look when you go up a size or if you have thinner legs. They don’t look big or sloppy at all but more like boarder pants. TTS looks really nice too.
These ones are probably TTS and more how the size 10 looks on me.
