Haha! it’s not a haul exactly, since it’s only one piece, but that’s all I needed!! And anyway, as I’ve often discussed here, I have a very hard time buying out of season, so I stick to looking for workout wear, jeans, bras, panties & beauty exclusives (uh…Lancome mascara wardrobe?? yes, please!) during the Nordstrom anniversary Sale.
I bought these SoLow leggings for Pure Barre/Exercise primarily, but I’m not totally against wearing them out, like this (my ass is covered!!!), or with a long cardigan and sneakers when it’s cooler. It’s quite hot for leggings right now, but in the fall, I might wear these if I get a wild streak and want to wear an “interesting” pair of leggings other than black.
I’m a huge fan of SoLow and own 5-6 pairs of their pants/leggings/crops and a few tops/jackets/dresses. They produce everything in the US and are environmentally conscious. I usually wait to get my SoLow pieces on sale at Shopbop or with a code at their own e-commerce site, but I do find everything they make to be very high quality, holding up very well to a lot of use, so they’re probably also worth full-price if you’re so inclined. **ok. So I wore these to my Pure Barre class this morning, after I posted this, and noticed after that the stitching is coming out on the left side where the lace is. It will only continue to get worse, it’s not something I can snip off…so I’m taking them back to Nordstrom. Thank goodness they will take them back. I’m quite disappointed as this has never happened with a pair of SoLow leggings, but there’s always a first time I guess!
But back to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale…Some things have sold out (the James Perse blazer I posted earlier!), but here are some of my favorites of what’s left. Reader Dakotacheryl received her Theory Innis sweater and gave it a very positive review. Did anyone else get their order yet? What did you love/not love?
