I can't decide if I want the rasberry or the Diamond Jacquard Define Jacket. Ahhh---I can only pick one! Does anyone know if the rasberry define is thin? Thank you.
Happy New Year LLM! The Diamond Jacquard Define in berry rumble/jewelled magenta is calling to me too! Have you or has anyone else tried it? Is it TTS or a size up item? TIA!
Nice leggings :) BLOG M&MFASHIONBITES : http://mmfashionbites.blogspot.gr/Maria V.
Has anybody seen the diamond jacquard define in real life? Is the colour more like the above photos (quite pink) or the website photos (muted berry)?
I just bought it this morning! It's super-pretty! Pinkish in person, with berry undertones if that makes sense. Thick and warm and unusual - I love it! I bought my usual 6 and found it to be looser around the waist/hips than usual, but not enough to size down. First Lulu purchase that I've been excited about in a while!
Thanks. I wish now that I hadn't bought the heathered magenta define that came out last year. I find it too thin and I don't think it was worth the money. I wish I'd held out for something thicker.
100% agree! I bought that jacket too, and just have never *loved* it. So it's going in my pile of things to sell on eBay :) I think it's a great jacket if you don't need a jacket with any warmth whatsoever, but this new one is super-pretty and feels very substantial by comparison. Now I just need to get my act together and start listing all the things ;)
Lake'n'MountainLover, thank you for the info! Do you usually size up in define? I am wondering if 6 or 4 is your TTS for tops.
I am a Lulu 4 in pants and tanks (5'7" and 128ish lb - I never weigh myself so that's approximate - with an athletic figure - i.e. no boobs) but I usually size up to a 6 for jackets/long-sleeved tops because I have quite broad shoulders. Size 6 is my usual Define/Forme/Scuba size and this one fits nicely in that size, in spite of the more dense fabric. I find it has a nice stretch to it in spite of the density - although it is definitely less snug around the waist/hips. Hope that helps!
Has anyone ordered the vinyasa *cotton, which apparently is acrually fleece and liked it? I ordered one from wmtm today and am regretting it a little based on the reviews.
it is very stiff. but I'm hoping it will soften with wear and washing. I like a thick scarf and the pattern, so I gave it a try for $29.
Is there supposed to be an upload today or no?
i tried on the jacquard define yesterday and fit TTS for me. I take a size 4 in defines always. it's definitely more pink than it is red and the material is thicker so it felt a bit stiff on me, more than i liked, so i didn't buy it.
skendall- i did order the fleece vinyasa and returned it. too stiff and constricting around my neck.
That's what I'm worried about. Unfortunately lulu doesn't accept returns on sale items.
I called and complained about the vinyasa. She said she wears hers so many different ways. I said, "it must not be the one with fleece because I can't even wrap it around my neck twice." I also told her the description was misleading- the scarf is not useable. She returned it and gave me a gc.
I got the the diamond jacquard define today. I normally size up in defines, but in this color/fabric I ended up staying TTS. Very pretty, soft, and thick.
I tried the diamond jacuard jacket on Wednesday . It's pretty thick, felt like my Heathered black DJ define from a couple of months ago. I usually size up in defines bc of my 32D chest. Nice jacket, but I got Rasberry one instead. Was debating which one to get since they got uploaded
@lululover, I ordered both because j can't decide. Lol. Will have to see which material is thicker. It sounds like the diamond jacquard is but have to see when the rasberry define arrives.
I tried the diamond jacquard define on today. It is pretty and I will likely keep it but it is quite different from any other diamond jacquard items I have (I love this fabric typically). In all my previous items, including a define in a slate colorway, the fabric was almost woven, very soft, flexible: This berry rumble define version, while thick, almost looks like the fabric has been printed on to look like a weave. Much stiffer and less "sweater" like in feel IMO. I wish lulu was more consistent with how they name fabrics as you could not tell this difference looking at it on the website. Also got the desert olive define - gorgeous color.
