Dude, what a weird night. The special Sunday-night-Cyber-Monday-edition-Tuesday-replacement upload was supposed to be “after dinner” Pacific time, and one rep from HQ on Facebook even went so far as to say 9pm PST. So everyone’s waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and it finally arrived fashionably late around midnight mountain time (2a EST/11p PST).
So, lulu: you win. We have been sufficiently trolled into staying up stupidly late with the promise of “upload soon!”.
To top off the weird cake, while I was minding my own business refreshing the what’s new page and thinking stabby thoughts about seeing the damn glitter collection for the umpteenth time, I got hit with a brief 4.7 mag earthquake of all things. (I don’t live in an area normally prone to quakes.)
Like I said, weird night.
Anyway, strap yourselves in. After all the waiting, there’s quite a bit of notable goods.
As we were promised: fluff off jackets and pullovers. 3 colors: ultra violet, white stained glass love, and stained glass love nightfall. As I’ve mentioned before, I love my jacket and wear it all the time so I can recommend this one. I had to size up for the jacket because my size is not available, and it works just fine, but many (most?) people stay TTS with these. I vaguely remember not liking the PO in my size up.
Also as promised: mini check pique ultra violet vinyasa scarf. I think the black ribbon qualifies as “not ruining it with the ribbon” since it’s a neutral. US also got the parallel stripe menthol.
Free to be wild bras! Ultra violet and capilano stripe only. Interestingly, Canada got size 12 in both these colors, while US only goes up to size 10 (the usual cap for this style).
Canada got the wild tank. If you look closely, you’ll notice the straps are flatter and wider, like the energy bra, not rounded like the free to be and FTBW.
The flurry fighter pullover is really growing on me. It comes in black, ultra violet, and white so far. The slits at the hem irritate me but I’m not sure it’s a dealbreaker. To be fair, the looseness from the slits might help the hem to stay down instead of riding up.
The cotton fleece karmacollected jacket is actually surprisingly cool considering the other karmacollected stuff is pretty shapelessly fug.
Surprise define jackets: coco pique for US, parallel stripe for Canada.
The much-anticipated (by some, anyway) black/nimbus pranayama scarf made it to both sides. I’m too tired to decide whether to order it right now but I will probably give it a shot. Considering the other 2 colors are still in stock, I think I’ll be safe to wait til morning to decide… (Update: since I’m sure you’re all dying to know, I decided to pass after one too many reviews reporting its flimsiness.)
New embrace hoodie in Canada looks…inappropriate somehow.
Unbreakable print speed tights–the print is only in the front, which is smart for sheerness and dirtiness. I love this print, but no size 2 or 12 because lulu hates fringe sizes lately. Only Can got this print, plus they got giant herringbone. US only got deepest cranberry for speed tights.
Oh and BOOM, parallel stripe speed tights. Also Canada only, ALSO again with lulu pooping on fringe sizes.
New giant herringbone wunder under pants. They look kind of brown here, which may have to do with the brown stitching, even though the print is stated as being black and looks black in closeups.
High times pants were uploaded in coco pique AND giant herringbone. Herringbone is US only.
This stained glass love pow pink light/menthol print is actually kind of fun. Better than the other stained glass colors I’ve seen. This color in Canada only.
Other upload notes:
– The exquisite capsule uploaded to both sides: tank, bra, onesie, pants, and trousers.
– Canada got an insulated version of the feelin’ frosty softshell–it has primaloft.
– Canada got some funky om stripe passion crops.
– Two words: glitter socks. (Canada only)
– Canada got an ultra violet 105F singlet.
– Canada got the new emerge renewed jacket in 3 colors.
– Beat the sleet pants uploaded to Canada only. They’re just a layer of glyde, no inner legging layer.
– Canada got run times shorts with a parallel stripe waistband. Let the record show that if we got speeds with a horizontally oriented parallel stripe body, I would lose.my.crap.
– In case all my “Canada got”/”Canada only” sentences weren’t a tip-off, Canada’s upload was much bigger: 54 versus 36.
– Still no majestic denim scuba in the US.
Dude, I’m going to sleep for realzies now, and it’s gonna be awesome. You can tell I need sleep because I keep saying “dude”.
