But I did want to get the black Studio Crops because I love my wren ones, and I figured I would get lots of use out of the black one. They will be great for street wear now that it's getting warmer. I also want to start taking hip hop dance classes at the gym, and I think these would be good for that! Out of everything in my wardrobe, these are as "hip hop" as it gets (when I tie up the cinchable cord)!
I got the black ones in a size 4 as well, which is the same size as the wren ones but a size up from the long Dance Studio pants that I own. I find that they fit looser than my wren ones in the same size. Maybe half a size bigger. So that makes them feel about a size bigger than my long pants. It's all good though, I actually like them to fit like this in crops. Also, I never really inspected the black Dance Studio pants in person before, but black with the subtle pin stripes make them look like charcoal. I really like it.
I thought I was going to get like 5 pairs of these Studio Crops in different colors, but I think I'm done now. Well, unless an amazing color comes out that I can't resist! But I think 2 is plenty for me. I also started thinking that $89 is really quite pricey for these pants, especially since they will primarily be for street wear. They really should be like $50 at the most. My main reasons for buying Lululemon is for the technical properties. So I won't be tempted to get another pair that easily.
I was a little tempted to get the Swiftly LS in Clarity Gray / Lilac Snow or Classic Gray / Black though. They are both so pretty! But I restrained myself because I already have the short sleeve version of Clarity Gray / Lilac Snow. And long sleeve swiftlys don't work well for the weather here in my opinion - it's either too cold for such a thin shirt (I'm also a baby), or too hot for a long sleeve shirt, period. There's only a few days a year where it's appropriate for the long sleeve swiftly for me, so I don't need to have a bunch of them. I'll just admire them from here.
