I think the reflective details on this pullover are so beautiful and whimsical. You just never see stuff like this from Lulu anymore, or anyone else really. The pony tail hole in the hood is excellent!! This pullover just looks so different, and I am really digging it in black. When they first released it in 2009, I had wished they would have made the bright blue one in solid, instead of blue and black color blocking. I almost got the power purple one instead of the bright blue back then because power purple was solid. But the reflective details are not as obvious on the purple one as the black because they used silver on purple and black on the blue one, which stands out way more.
So this is a size 4 like my old one. But I feel like this one fits snugger, especially in the shoulders. It's been years though, so I can't be sure. I just remember not being perfectly happy with the shoulder design. But it looks and feels a lot better in this one.
I'm so happy!!! Of course, it is still going to be too warm for the weather here but I'll wear it as to and from, or just as a hoodie. The solid black looks less athletic wear than my old one did, so I'll be able to pull it off easier!
My other score from ebay was is the Leader of the Track skirt in bold blue plaid for $22. I don't even think I browse on ebay all that often, but I've been getting some good deals lately! I guess it pays to browse. I love plaid print, but I don't own any Lulu items with plaid, other than my Jump Start gym bag in foxy plaid. So this is my first clothing item that has it! I remember at the time this print came out, I liked it but all the tops that came out in it were pretty ugly. I remember this short boxy jacket in this print... it was horrid. I can't remember the name of it. It went to mark down for very low but I wouldn't wear it if they paid me.
This skirt definitely fits on the loose side. I got it in my normal size 4, but it fits a little big on me. Sad!! Well... not so big that it's unwearable. Just would look better a little more fitted I think. I still like it though! I want to wear my skirts more, and I think this would be so cute for tennis!
|Little pocket on the side for tennis ball!!|
So yeah, it fits a little poofy and makes me look like I have no ass. Oh well. I love the print still! For $22 I'm totally cool with this.
I think this skirt is also from 2009, around the same time as the Spirit Pullover. Bold blue is one of my favorite colors. I still looooove my bold blue Run Brisk. Only if I knew things would start going downhill back then, I would have bought so much more stuff!
