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!

FIT: 

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.

FEEL:

Soft cotton fabric. 90% cotton. 10% lycra. Not thin at all, you can tell it has quality and will last.

FASHION:

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.

FUNCTION:

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?

Yes.

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.

Also comes in gray and burgandy…

DESCRIPTION FROM SHOP :

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.

THANKS KATE!
