Hello Style and Beauty persons (that's a little joke - for the chaps seldom venture hither ...), hope you've all had a lovely day in the sunshine.
Does anyone out there know where to get a stylish (and yet practical) yoga kit?
I'm a wannabe yoga bunny and have started an energetic (ie sweaty) yoga class (or three) and my present outfit of leggings and t-shirt just doesn't cut it. For a start, it's just so darned hot!
I had a look at the Sweaty Betty site and their kit is a bit [whisper] dull. I was hoping for something stretchy and bright. Tbh, I can sometimes feel a little despondent mid-class, as I inadvertently cast my eye across the young and lithe, so something to lift the spirits and inspire would be a most welcome addition to my life.
I'm not sure anything you wear will be any cooler than leggings and a t-shirt tbh.
Shorts and a vest?
Shorts and a sports bra and no top?
Crop leggings and a sports bra?
I find it hard to look good when doing sport, but whenever I find nice little vest tops that are a long length I tend to buy them for this purpose.
Sweaty betty has the brightest colours of anywhere, but it is sportswear, you could judt buy normal stuff from topshop or newlook if you want something a bit more interesting, but then it won't be designed with sport in mind, so it's kind of a toss up between looking good or feeling good.
Ooh - just googled lululemon and that is definitely on the right lines. Apparently it is sold in the King's Road sport's club. And nowhere else ... . I wonder if they allow non-members in to purchase things?
DebiNewberry - Hmmm, it may be selective consciousness (or something) but I didn't see Calmia the last time I walked down Marylebone High Street and thought it had closed down. I will google them and see if they're still there. I think that is just the place - they used to sell Christy Turlington's nuala shoes, didn't they ... . [What am I like? I'm actually slightly furtive about knowing that!]
Pasturesnew - Sadly, this thread advertises to the world that I am too shallow for Sweaty Betty. [whine] I want yoga-ey yoga clothes, with little sanskrit symbols, and cute flarey bits, and arty fabric inserts.
Can I just say to everyone, thanks, esp. if I haven't said so individually. I feel I have a target, a goal, and the shopping-focus of a shark, now. [do sharks go shopping? I suspect not ... .] However, I am slightly mortified by exactly how very un-yoga this thread reveals me to be ... .
