Lorna Jane Mercedes Tight & Deception Tank

I went to the Lorna Jane store specifically for the Mercedes Seamless Tight.  I saw them on a girl at the gym last week and decided that I had to have them too lol.  They've got herringbone pattern on them!  It's one of my favorite patterns, so I got them!

So these tights are seamless, and they felt pretty thin when I was touching them initially.  I was sure that they would be sheer.  But when I tried them on, they were actually not bad!  Well... what I didn't realize was that I was wearing light colored undies at the time.  When I tried them on with darker ones at home, you could definitely see them.  Soooo... I guess they are semi-sheer.  But they are cute, and price is not bad ($79) so I'll forgive them.  Just stick with light underwear haha.

I got them in size XS which is my normal Lorna Jane bottom size.  I actually find the color (canyon marl) of these tights to be somewhat interesting.  They are a medium gray color with blue hue.  So they look in between gray and blue to me, which is definitely a color I don't already have.

I think the placement of the herringbone pattern looks cool too!

I also got the Deception Tank in powder grey marl, which is quite similar to the Mercedes tights.  This tank is very soft, and it is priced lower than most LJ tanks, at $55.  It's actually very similar in style to my Nike Camouflage burnout tanks.  I love it.

I got it in size S.  I usually wear either XS or S in LJ tanks.  The store only had S, and it fits quite nicely so I didn't really need to try on any other size.  I'd say if you are between sizes, go with the larger one in this tank.

So as you can see, the "honeycomb" looking stripes are semi-sheer:

So I have to vent a little about Lorna Jane stores.  They are SO annoying to shop at lol.  Every time I go in one, I get smothered by the sales girls.  I usually run out of them before they bug me too much.  But when I've had to try stuff on, it is the most horrific experience.  Basically while you are in the fitting room, they will come and bring you a bunch of other items to try, even if you had already gone through the store yourself and passed on them.  This time was especially annoying, because I was kind of in a hurry and only wanted to try on 3 things.  But the girl literally brought me like 10 different OUTFITS, with top, bra, and tights for each!  Are you kidding me?!  That is just too much.  I didn't touch those items so she only created more work for herself lol.  But seriously, this makes me not want to shop at their stores ever.  At the same time, it is also tough to buy from them online since sizing and material can be very different in person.  Sigh.  I wish whoever told them to upsell like that would realize that it is not a good tactic to use.  I can't imagine what kind of person can stand this.  

Ok, rant over lol.  So aside from my annoying experience at the store, I am glad I walked away with 2 cute items.  It might be quite a while before I gather enough courage to venture back to a LJ store though!  So this could be my last in the near future.


  1. I've had the same experience!!! Totally ran out the door, the salesgirl was way to crazy. And I heard her saying to a trainee "see how I was talking to her? That's the kind of conversations you should be having...." So this IS their sales tactic. Totally annoying.

    1. Yep, it's the same way in every single LJ store I've been to! I'd shop there a lot more if they would just leave me alone lol.

    1. I will be going to my first LJ store in a couple of weeks (visiting Palm Springs for the first time! and I am from Canada so I haven't tried anything from them yet), so you have me a little nervous about the sales people. I shop at Lulu quite a bit here and their sales people seem like they would rather be doing anything else but helping you-lol Anyways, can you recommend some of your favourite items from LJ. I have heard their bras are pretty good quality .

    2. You should definitely try on some bras! I have so many of them now. They usually have cute designs, and the bras are very supportive and flattering (might give you too much cleavage if you are already well-endowed though lol). All my bras have held up really well despite being washed many times. As for tanks, it's really a case by case basis. I have some that I love, and some that are "meh". The materials and fit can be vastly different so you really have to just look in person and try them on. Their tights are usually too thick for me since I live in LA and it's so hot most of the time. But I do own a couple pairs that are nice designs. Good luck at the store! Hope you won't be as annoyed as I get lol.
