More fit reviews from Nordstrom Vancouver today. I was very short on time today and only had about 30 minutes to browse and try stuff on so I couldn’t grab more but I did aim to get a review of the Goddess Leggings some of you have been wondering about. Lunch at Bistro Verde was incredible by the way, I highly recommend it.
I am in LOVE with this tank! I was intrigued by Lululemon’s beach scape print that came out last year but something about it in person I just didn’t care for so I ended up passing on that one. This tank though, the colors are intense in person and it is the thickest softest cotton I have ever felt. I just find this version of horizon print much more flattering. I absolutely had to bring this tank home even though it is pricier than a Cool Racerback. I know I’ll wear it casually, with a pretty black wrap sweater dressed up with a long necklace, I’ll wear it to the gym and I will wear it to bed. I take a 10 in Lululemon Cool Racerbacks and this tank was perfect in an L. Nice and long with the ability to scrunch it up higher.
I pulled this hoodie to try on because it was incredibly soft and looked cute on the hanger but I didn’t care for it on. The neckline was really high and the fit was boxy in the torso. I liked the open back though. This is a large.
Alo Moto Leggings price matched online to $88
I also really loved these Moto Leggings and I put them on hold so that I could think about them for a bit. In store in Canadian prices I think it was $130 which was steep but these are leggings I would wear dressed up with great boots (more in the category of pants). If you are in the US though these are price adjusted online so I would definitely have gotten them at the $88 price tag. I think if you get them online from the Canadian side they should adjust to around $117 CAD. They are made for long legs which meant adjusting some of the moto detailing and the mesh panels so that it sat in the right places but once on they looked perfect. I really love these and I like them a lot more than the Lululemon Tech Mesh Tights.
Alo Goddess Leggings Deep Teal Black *price matched online to $73.60
Please excuse the crazy print combo. I wanted to grab the Alo Goddess Leggings in all black or black/navy but they were sold out of my size so I grabbed these funky print ones just to try on. These are a size large on me (I take a 8 or 10 in Lululemon crops) and they are long but fit right otherwise. The upper material is very supportive and butt lifting but I did find them slightly sheer in this print. I suspect the solid colors are completely opaque but as with Lululemon, it is tricky to get opacity with prints. The bottom material is incredibly soft and light. I loved how these felt on. I need to try a more neutral pair on before I decide if I’d like these. I also would take advantage of Nordstrom hemming and get these hemmed shorter for my short leg length. It’s nice to have excess material that you can scrunch up like leg warmers but this was too much material for me on the bottom.
These Lorna Jane Crops where so flattering on and I loved them as much as I loved last weeks Alo Crops. The mixed mesh design on the sides was really flattering and I found these pleasantly compressive and smoothing in the butt area. I can’t really justify black crops this week but these are definitely on my list for when I do need black crops for Crossfit or running. These are a size large on me and I wear a size 8 or 10 in Lululemon crops.
And finally, these BP booties where a very pleasant surprise. My sister ended up getting the black pair and since we take the same shoe size I tried them on as well as the tan colored ones. The leather is very soft and I think the value of these is incredible at this price point. $129.95 for leather booties like this is just unreal. I also love that besides these 3 basic colors they had a bunch of other colors with contrasting bucle and herringbone. I couldn’t justify getting the black ones I liked since I have my Rag&Bone ones I got at the anniversary sale (love those!) but I’m thinking that if I wanted to have an alternate funky color like the tan these would be the way to go. My mom really loved these too because she said they were the style of boots she wore in the 70’s.
