I was really naughty and placed a rather large order on Tuesday’s upload, but I blame it on Lululemon’s new 30 day return policy. I actually hadn’t noticed the Black Grape Pace Rivals until after I already checked out, and then I took an entire day to decide I should probably just try them on. I love Pace Rivals but I haven’t liked the prints very much and I prefer when the mesh is more subtle and not contrasted. It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve seen a pretty solid coloured Pace Rival without any funky contrasting. I tried these on with a tee shirt that has some rose gold detailing on it and now I’m obsessed with finding rose gold sandals to go with these Pace Rivals (or with the Fast And Free 7/8 Tights). I think it will also look great with my Muted Mauve Essential Tank and my Heathered Barkberry Scuba. The fit was my usual TTS 10 and they passed the squat test for opacity. If you are a fan of Pace Rivals and Black Grape speaks to you as it does me, you should try these on.
I’ve got a variety of natural light pictures here for you so you can see the true color. Black Grape is a really deep intense dark purple. I’m still working on my photography skills so bear with me. My camera is not compatible at all with a shutter remote so I have to use this infuriating app to take pictures – hence the giant iPhone 7 I’m starring at in each picture. Derp!
