Since stores no longer do product drops on Monday and the new items debut on Tuesdays, I decided to do a fit review of a couple of items from last weeks upload that I hadn’t gotten to. I’ll be back tomorrow to review the new stuff.
I tried on this Ready To Rulu in my size 10 (the white/black) and my size down 8 in the Sapphire. I didn’t expect to like the feel of this jacquard RULU but it’s actually pretty soft and stretchy and I would definitely consider it. Perhaps in another design. I’d snatch up a Tuck and Flow LS in this material for sure. Both sizes fit well – the TTS was oversized in the chest and underarm area and longer while the TTS fit better in the chest but was slightly shorter. I would have purchased this in my regular size 10 because I like a slouchy fit in Rulu tops. I normally gravitate to the Rulu pullovers at this time of year but instead I got the Olive swiftly tech LS so I can’t justify purchasing these but I do like the black and white one and will have it on my ‘maybe’ list if it goes to markdown.
Rush Hour 1/2 Zip TTS 10
This top was really cute from the front and I like that it’s a solid color Rulu but I don’t gravitate to any of the colors this came in. I also really don’t like the back pleat detail. Design wise I feel like it’s missing those cute lululemon details like the contrasting panels of heathered material, pockets, seam details, ruffles…. I don’t know, it’s just really missing some features I think, especially in the front. Of course I probably would have been all over this top in Alberta Lake or Bali Breeze.
This scarf is incredibly thick and weighted so it felt really bulky in the arm area. From pictures it looks really chic but on my body it felt really bulky, wide and cropped. I have a scarf similar to this from last year that had an angled zipper on it and that one felt more flattering on me and much lighter and easier to wear, I think probably because it was shorter and biased cut. I also like ponchos like these when they have a more fluid drape which you don’t get in this because of the bulk of the knit. If you are tall though, this is gorgeous!
