Ugh. I so hate that uploads are no longer on Monday’s. Its actually quite stupid. Not much product dropped in stores on Mondays, and if you usually got your orders on Fridays (from Monday uploads) or Saturdays, now you don’t get your item until the following week. I really feel that for ship out purposes the upload should happen at the earliest point in the week. For hype and excitement purposes, there was a ton more hype for Monday night uploads with a days worth of product drops to help the anticipation and buildup along. Another thing that is bugging me is all this mesh. I get that this is the typical slow transition period for Lululemon from Summer items winding down to the big fall uploads (this week is always slow, every year for the past 4 years), and it is always full of basic neutral items and transitional color palettes but I really, really am bored of seeing all the same mesh items reinvented each week. You can so tell that these are garments cobbled together using extra bolts of black luon and stretching it with mesh inserts. You know you are in a transition phase when you see the knit garments come out in black, white and grey (chai time, unity pullover, post practice cardigan etc. etc.) and it used to be when Lululemon would release great pima cotton tees in black, charcoal grey, classic sports grey, oatmeal and white. Those really pretty fashionable tees like the Bow Tee or the Liberty Tee. So regret not getting those. Now they just do the cheaper burnout material tees year round.
Another noteworthy mention is that Britt’s Picks mentioned last week that the Here To There Dress is due out tomorrow. She has since amended it and said that the timing has changed and that it will come out later in August and in other colors (reds are coming…maybe red? currant or cranberry?). That works for me. Personally I’d love one in a deep purple like Lolo. She had also answered a readers question about wether or not the Tuck and Flow LS’s in Opal and Cadet would come out in the ‘fall upload’ she mentions in her post and Britt said no, they will not be part of fall uploads. I think there is a good chance they will be uploaded tomorrow though since tomorrow is the last ‘summer’ upload.

I’m reading the fit on this run is much more ‘normal’ and TTS fitting. The last run was huge and I sized down from a 10 to a 4.
