Since I missed out on the Post Run Pullover, I was really happy to see the Run: Ambition Pullover. They pretty much look the same, minus some trim details. Except the Ambition is a technical top made of brushed power luxtreme. Even better! I liked the snorkel blue one, but I already have my Spirit Pullover in bright blue, which is very similar so I didn't want another. I liked the white one also, but I know it would get dirty fast. I have a white Energy Pullover and the part of the cuffs right under the wrists kind of turned a little greyish and I can't wash it out. That's just what happens to white long sleeves I guess. So those two colors were out for me. Then I couldn't decide between passion and black, so I ordered both. I have a few tanks in passion. But this top showed up more orangey than I thought. I actually compared it with my Push Ur Limits tank in passion side by side because I know that the same color in different fabrics or batches can look different. I found that the colors of my tank and the Ambition pullover were almost identical, with the Push tank being a tiny bit more red. I'm not sure if I like passion being a long sleeve top. It's kind of too much. The black one is just black. I don't know if I'm 100% happy with that either. Most of my bottoms are black, and I really don't want to sport the ninja look. I only have 2 tanks that are black and I never wear them. I always think that I would feel like wearing more muted tops one day, but that almost never happens. I'm a bright and colorful girl! Hmmm. I wish the Ambition Pullover came in the very violet color that the Post Run came in. That would have been perfect...
Ok my fiance is not home tonight, so I had to resort to taking pictures of these two pullovers with my iPhone. Ignore my messy closet behind me. =)
|Passion on me|

Here are the stock pictures from the Lululemon website of these two colors:
Other than the colors, I really do love the way this pullover fits. It fits on the looser side, but I think it's supposed to be that way. So I would say it's true to size. The cute kangaroo pocket is pretty roomy, and it has a little mesh card holder built on the inside. Like a pocket within a pocket. I like that a lot because I'm always afraid I'd lose things I put in my kangaroo pockets. This way I can keep a credit card or some cash in it without having to worry that it would fall out. The length of this top is on the longer side too which is great. At first I was worried that the big collar and hood would be bothersome while running, but I found a continuous drawstring inside the collar that you can tie the hood around.
The cuffs are interesting. I guess they are called "tuckins" which is like inside out cuffins. Hard to explain so I took a picture.
See, you can put your fingers inside the "tuckins" and still use the thumb hole. Or you can choose to not use the tuckins, then it would just be an extra piece of fabric against the sleeve.
Then of course there's the reflective details on the arms as well as the back pocket, which is about the same size as most Lululemon run pullovers.
So I think I will definitely keep one of the colors. Unless a new and better color comes out before the return period is up. I think this is one of the more versatile pullover styles, because I can use it running as well as casual wear. I mean, it just looks like a hoodie! And it's soft and comfy. I just really have to decide which color I'm keeping.
The shorts I'm wearing while taking these photos are actually new too. They are the Effortless Short in heathered clarity gray that I bought off of the sale section for $19. That's the most I'd pay for a pair of cotton "hang out at home" sweat shorts. I think they look kind of ugly on the model. But I just really needed some shorts to wear around the house. They turned out a lot cuter than I thought. But I did have to fold them up to make them shorter. Otherwise they are kind of an awkward length. You can't see in the pictures, but there is a zipper pocket on one of the butt cheeks.
And lastly, I also got a pair of the Boogie Short in static charcoal / wish blue. I've been wanting to get some Boogie Shorts for a while now, but didn't feel like paying $48 for them at regular price. I like the color combo of these, and they were on sale for $29. I bought them in size 6 because they didn't have a 4. But it's pretty much the same as how a 4 fits - I've tried on both sizes in store before. I don't plan to wear them outside of the house, unless I get into fighting shape then I might consider lol... I just really wanted them as pajamas actually. I wear Cool Racerbacks (my fav is the static very violet because it's sooooo soft) to sleep in every night, and they are great. So now I got a whole outfit! I don't look as booty-licious as her though. Hahaha.
I was kind of hoping for more stuff to hit the sales section though. Like I really wanted either the purple or pink Inspire Jacket which I tried on in store and loved. But did not think I would use it enough to pay $158 or whatever. Well of course it's been raining here tons and that jacket would've come in handy. And now it's nowhere to be found. I seem to remember last year during the holidays Lululemon had great sales on their website. I got bras for like $5. And there were tons of $3 underwear, $19 tanks, etc. So I was rather disappointed this year. Maybe more will be uploaded later. I can always hope!
