Nordstrom Activewear Picks

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coming to a close in just 5 days and so many affordable activewear options, I thought I'd go through and see what activewear has been restocked. The Barbour jacket I purchased in the pre sale has been sold out for most of the sale but today I noticed that it had been restocked in all three colors so I decided to look around to see what other restocks have come up at the tail end of the sale.

  1. Good feature, LLM. I'll be starting to pay more attention to Nordstrom since the Toronto store will open in September. That's right, Lululemon, take that and good luck.

    And if LLL didn't get this memo - the high end retailer it thinks that it is and that no one can compete with - even the very, very high end retailers are struggling, e.g. Prada, LV etc. And Winners/Marshalls/TJX is the second largest retailer in Canada, second only to Walmart.

  2. Lululemon is still cuter than any of the Nordstrom activewear....

    1. In some cases but I like a lot of stuff that Nordstrom has. Alo in particular has just as nice leggings and Zella has a really great version of the Align tight but they've had it longer.

    2. What is their align tight version called? I almost bought the aligns because they are so incredibly soft, but I saw someone wearing them and they were horribly pilled, so I didn't. I've still been tempted though, haha! It would be great to get the same without worry of bad pilling.

    3. The LLL Aligns are total garbage quality. I wouldn't waste your money on them, tbh.

    4. Yes I have both the Align crops and pants and both look really haggard and did after the first wash. I definitely won't be buying anymore of them. My Zella leggings feel just as soft and thin and nice but they are completely opaque and don't pill or fuzz. They are currently my only Zella item but I'll definitely be replacing my black leggings with Zella as they wear out.

  3. They are the Live In Legging and crops. I have the full length in a large (lulu 10) and they are really nice. Matte and similar to aligns but more sturdy in a pleasant way.
