I was so tempted by these High Times in the Obscured Black Print (or Black Roses 2.0 for you OG’s). The material of these pants is the new printed luon which is breathable, none polyester and opaque. You do get print spread with this new luon but I find that acceptable as long as it’s a nice feeling luon and it’s opaque. My annoyance came with the realization that these where not regular high times and that they had the special edition peek feature in the back along with seams that cut across my legs. I decided to not purchase these in hopes that we see the High Times Wunder Under Crop in this exact print and material. Unfortunately looking at the UK website I see that the WU’s are Fulux and not this Full On Luon that I like, but there is a plain High Times Pant in this print. Those I will buy. Also, $118 is an ugly price for leggings.
Oh no! Contrasted seams cutting across my legs. Boo!
You can see the level of fade in this print isn’t too bad at all. Looking at this print zoomed in though I’m already feeling regret that I left these behind.
Layer Up Jacket TTS 10
I didn’t like this jacket mostly because I found it extremely plain without any quilting detail on it. I didn’t realize it was reversible until I got home so unfortunately I didn’t try the red side out but the red contrasting was really nice on otherwise boring Bordeaux. It’s Primaloft and not down feather so I know there are many of you out there that will greatly appreciate that. It’s light water and wind resistant and for $198 I have higher function and design expectations for a jacket to have been tempted by this one. It also came in black and navy.
This was really nice but I haven’t purchased a Lululemon bra in ages so I passed on it. I think I need to clear out some of my unworn Energy Bras before I get anything new.
My store had both the Hotty Hot Shorts and Speed Shorts in this print. I liked them both and was really surprised that the Hotty Hot Shorts are pretty much the same length as speed shorts. I brought home the Speed Shorts but have since decided I’m not going to ever wear them so I’ll be taking them back.
I liked Rose Quartz but it’s a Cool Racerback II so I’m not interested in getting it. I’m instead going to hold out for the Dusty Mauve Essential Tank.
This is the Cool Racerback II SE *Peek and I really didn’t like the peek feature on it only because you have to adjust it to lay straight. As you move, that straight line will not lay straight so it really looks ‘off’ and unbalanced. And $64 for a Cool Racerback? No fricken way!
