You lose some you win some! Yesterday I was very cranky about the Rush Hour Jacket being marked down extremely fast and not being able to get mine price adjusted, and today I scored a Sattva Sweater on sale! I really liked this sweater when I first tried it on but I really disliked the price tag of $158 so it was always on the back of my mind when combing through sales racks. It was one of the items I looked for at my local stores shopping event but they sold thru immediately so I just assumed they where gone everywhere. Today I went to a store I don’t normally go to and they had all the colors of the Sattva Sweater marked down in most sizes! If you are in Canada, you can call the Oakridge store to order one, or you can check your stores to see if they have it marked down too.
This sweater is a bit too warm for me for inside wear in Vancouver since it is 100% merino wool and a heavy knit, but I’m going to Toronto next month and I suspect this will be a good layering piece for me there. I really like natural fibres like this and since it’s oversized it’s not itchy on me.
While I was there I also tried on the Embrace The Space Hoodie which has gotten some hype on Facebook groups. I think it’s nice enough but I wasn’t in love with it and it wasn’t magical slimming or elegant on me. The thinness of it was a nice change since you can wear it under a jacket without feeling the bulk of cotton or fleece, or you can probably slip it on quite easily post workout on sweaty skin, but it’s still a nylon/polyester blend material and $138 seemed really much for it. Whats nice about it is it’s thinness and how saturated dark black it is, and it’s somewhat structured. I tried on my size 10 which was huge, and size 8 which was oversized but right and both lengths where butt covering on me. It’s on my markdown list but I think I’d only bite if it’s sub $80. Spacer fabric is a tricky fit though, on some it looks really elegant and on others it just overwhelms.
Have you guys tried on the Embrace The Space Hoodie? I’m curious about your impressions of it.
