Fitness Fashion time!
Man, it’s been a long time since I have shared with you some of my fashion faves. Shall we revisit? ;)
Look at my super sexy long sleeved yoga top! OMG when I first saw this wrap on Etsy, I almost died. So when Kate from Kayayogawear was kind of enough to let me test it out and share my thoughts with you all, I pretty much went to heaven.
I actually wore this beauty several times before I took the photos because I just couldn’t wait to put it on and wear it…to class, to go out, to teach…I LOVE IT!
Slimming long sleeves. The wrap nicely cinches your waist in the most feminine way, giving you a nice hourglass figure. The wrap is very fitted and stretchy.
Soft cotton fabric. 90% cotton. 10% lycra. Not thin at all, you can tell it has quality and will last.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the sweetheart neckline. It makes for a very sweet and sexy look, showing off your collarbones and a hint of cleavage. The wrap also connects in the back with hooks, so it gives you that olden-times corset feel. I was surprised at the craftsmanship of the top - it truly accentuated my figure as if it were tailored for me. IMPRESSED.
Wore to to class - stayed on the whole time and allowed me to bend and stretch in the wildest ways while still staying put! I didn’t even have to tug at it because it didn’t ride up or anything.
Wore to to go out - super cute with a tank underneath. Kept me perfectly cozy and felt like a second skin.
PRICE: $58.50 with $10 shipping.
IS IT WORTH IT?
Because I live and breathe fashion and fitness (on both ends as a bag designer and as a fitness instructor), I understand why things are priced the way they are. It’s not easy to simply design something and sell it. There are a million steps in between. And to get it JUST RIGHT as a skill, a talent.
Trust me, this top is worth every penny. It is versatile, so it’s like getting a few tops in one. And the more you wear, the more you amortize it. If you wore it just 5 times a month for a year, that’d be only $1 per wear! And since it’s a coverup, you’re likely to wear it more than if it were just a shirt.
Plus! Love supporting independent artists on Etsy . You can find the MOST UNIQUE things on there that are usually hand crafted and created by my fellow female entrepreneurs.
This multi tying bolero top is a very useful garment.It has a flattering princess neckline, it is made from good quality cotton lycra(90%cotton,10%lycra), and can be worn a variety of ways.
Perfect for those cold days ,perhaps early morning starts in the yoga class. It serves as a comfortable and warm shrug for the shoulders,without the bulk of a sweatshirt, and is also breathable being made from cotton.
I wear mine at the start of my yoga practise, when my body is not yet warm, and then after a few more sun salutations i have generated enough heat to start peeling off the layers!
I also use it for teaching, as it fits close to the body without restriction,and without getting in the way/moving around when demonstrating postures.
It can also be worn off the mat,whether jogging in the park, working out at the gym, or even as a flattering accompanyment to any outfit,casual,yet smart.
It can be worn various ways1 :Crossed and hooked (with a neat row of small, flat hooks) at the back, making a band across the chest. 2 : Crossed lower across the body, and again hooked in the back. 3 : Tied in front. 4 : Simply left untied like a cropped cardigan.
