This is the big Fall 2016 product drop we’ve been waiting for. Unfortunately no Florence Print Speed Wunder Tights, but there where other NULU pants in. FYI, in the photos below I am wearing my Zella leggings.
Rush Hour Jacket tts 10
I really liked this jacket and loved it in this color. Comes in black and white in store, and online I’ve seen it in Sapphire Blue. I found the front seam details really flattering and slimming and the inside was really soft and cozy. I didn’t love the $158 price tag. Was last years glyde/rulu jacket this expensive? I’m considering this one but may have to wait until markdown. I loved it but can’t really justify it. Underneath is the new Military Green Cool Racerback II. I would have jumped on it in the regular CRB version.

As I mentioned above, I loved the color but don’t like the CRB II as much as the regular CRB. The CRB II’s aren’t selling out very well even in hot colors so I can sit and wait on this one.
The Like Nothing 7/8 Tight are really very nice and made of this new NULUX material so I picked them up to try. I’ve been waiting for the Florence Print which seems to be extremely delayed, but to be honest, black tights are much more versatile for me. This pant is very flattering but it’s not without it’s quirks. The hem at the bottom is raw and unfinished which worries me. I’ve included a close up of the raw edge with the vertical flat lock seam running through it because I worry that this seam will fray and cause the hem to split open. The raw edge does provide a much more streamlined look at the ankle but I don’t think I want to sacrifice seam stability to get that.
I really love the side 3/4 view seam details which I found very slimming and flattering. The waist is really high which creates the illusion of longer legs, but at the same time it sort of cuts into your high waist a bit. I found these tights reasonably opaque, although in a deep squat in certain lighting you can just see the rip tag. Overall I found these really flattering, with the bonus of a new material to try out, so I forked over the absurd $143.36 in the name of blogger duty so that I can give these a proper workout review. NULUX feels really nice and airy on and I love a streamlined black tight for workouts that don’t have overdone mesh detailing so I think I can justify that this purchase will get tones of use.

Really high waist, above the belly button.

I don’t buy swiftlies (I have two that I never wear) so I mistakenly grabbed this in my TTS 10 forgetting that I prefer to size up in these. The color is gorgeous and very tempting but I just won’t wear this often enough. Swiftlies are too warm and too delicate for me.
All Day Vest TTS 10
This vest was hideous on me and very masculine on my short curvy frame but if you are tall and willowy this will look very chic and urban. I didn’t actually hate this but it was just really unflattering on me and I didn’t love that the only closure for this is snap buttons. There is also no hood on this and the collar sits a bit weird. This is something to pick up on markdown if you like the looks of it, because it’s not going to have universal appeal.
Ready To RULU Pant TTS 10
These are not as great as the original Base Runner Pant. They are RULU and soft and slouchy but the Base Runner Pant is a much more flattering cut. These fit a lot looser in the leg as well and the cuff at the ankle pools and droops a bit. If you are long legged this will be fine, but for those of us that are short, the Base Runner is a better option.
Yikes! long mom butt in these.
Left pocket is a regular pocket.
Right pocket is a zipper pocket. At first I thought it was a false pocket but it actually has a zipper closure.
