|In lust with it|
So apparently it's not in stores yet, at least not the one I went to. I guess I don't *really* have a need for a pullover like this other than to lounge in it. But that is what I do best!
Anyway, I did however, finally cave and bought the Run: Swiftly LS in Haze. I have only one other Swiftly LS and that was the Silver/Faded Zap I got back in January. I liked the color in the beginning, but then I started wishing I had a brighter color. I have much love for the Swiftly shirts, long and short sleeves alike. It's funny that I never understood why these shirts with no built in shelf bras should be worth over $60 for the short sleeve version (after taxes). Until the Lululemon run club I used to go to gave me one to test out and I finally saw the light. (See the original post about my free Lululemon goodies here.) Since that time, I've bought so many more of the short sleeve shirts. Every time a new color came out I would grab it. All the sizes always sold out so fast too. They used to never go on sale before but about a few months ago I think they over-saturated the market a bit, and when I kept seeing different colors going on sale, they kind of lost their appeal to me. I don't like it when I see something I paid full price for go on sale for much cheaper a short while later. Because it makes me feel like an idiot! So I stopped buying them. I know it's very silly of me. Well I also had enough stocked up anyways. Very long explanation, but that's why I haven't bought another until today. I just fell in love with the color haze on me!
This is a very nice blue. It's in between an Easter egg blue and a bright blue. It's just pretty and calming. Since I already have the same shirt from before, I knew the fit in my size but I tried it on anyways. And it did look exactly the same as my old one, except I found the sleeves a bit looser than my silver one. That is a good thing - the sleeves on the silver are way too tight. This one is just right, though I would still have to wear the wrist watch of my heart rate monitor on the outside of the shirt. I don't mind that. It's more convenient when I'm running since I won't have to take my hand out of the thumb hole and pull up the sleeve to see the watch. The rest of the shirt seems to be exactly the same as my other one.
By the way, the new Lululemon photos are fine, but why is this model's hair covering the back of the shirt? If I didn't have this shirt already I would be annoyed that I couldn't see the details of the back. Just a thought.
Oh yeah, they have a new shopping bag for the holiday season. It's got superhero pictures on it. I'm not really sure why they chose the superhero theme, but I really like how it has a full zipper on top! I use these bags to store my food in the communal fridge at my work. I don't like it when it's open and people can see inside. Not that I eat weird stuff, I just don't want people seeing. It's kind of like a "mind your own business" kind of thing. I've been using the "special" ones I got around the holiday season last year that have a button on top. But the zipper is even better! There's also a label on top that says "what's your superhero name" and "what's your superhero power". Naturally that's the perfect place to put my name! Hehe. I think I need to make more purchases at Lululemon and stock up on these!
