Tully Lou

I am well versed in exercise clothing- the features, benefits and fabrics- having worked at Lululemon once upon a time. Lululemon is amazing quality and really great for the sport each garment has been made for. I really believe that even though Lulu is ridiculously expensive, the quality makes it worth it as their clothing lasts forever (I’ve had a pair of their pants for over 7 years and they’re still great!) But right now, I just don’t have the cash to splash on Lulu prices. Lorna Jane seems to be the next option when looking for yoga and exercise gear, but personally I can’t bring myself to buy any of it as I don’t like having branding splashed across clothing and the quality is not quite the same (Lululemon may have spoiled me for quality there…)

So in my hunt for some new threads to make me get off my butt and start running again this winter, I came across Tully Lou. Tully Lou is a small new Australian company who are just about to release their second range of yoga and fitness clothes and I’m slightly obsessed with their navy and lime leggings! I have found them to not only be great colours and design but they function really well and are so comfy to wear. The range is still small but as they are heading into just their second season, the range is sure to grow! I’m excited to see what is coming!

My biggest qualm would be that the website does not describe the items features and design or fabric compositions which is actually quite important. Despite this I have found the clothing to be quite functional. The tops are good for yoga but not supportive enough for anything else eg. running (well for me personally anyway) For now I will just be sticking to their amazing leggings!

So if you’re after something a little bit different and unique that looks great, then I definitely recommend you try out Tully Lou range!

Etsy Stores Part 2- Baby

This week’s blog is aimed towards the mountains of people who are having, or have had babies in the first half of the year, with TWO unique Etsy stores. Is it just me or does that pretty much include a majority of people you know? These stores are great places to grab something a little bit cool and different- no doubt I will be buying some baby shower gifts here! (Although the second store does have women’s as well)

If you’re about to tune out because you heard the word ‘baby’- check in next week for an amazing vintage industrial store find! 

Etsy stores Part 2

Little Hip Squeaks
Ok so there is an overload of choice when it comes to baby basics, but the two reasons I love Little Hip Squeaks are the use of only organic cotton, and the original prints designed by the store owner- so you’re not going around with the same as everyone else- which for most that is not a problem but personally I love having something pretty unique!

The range of cotton blankets is fun- the colours and prints are amazing. I can’t say I get the whole moustache trend but they have even covered that one with colourful moustache blankets! My favourite print Little Hip Squeaks produces in the blankets would be the fox, closely followed by the geometric triangle print then the elephants. The awesome part is that you can also get them to custom print a name on the blanket to really personalise it- fantastic gift idea!

The little add ons include leggings, hats and headbands- which all make great little pressies to go along with other bits and pieces- so if you’re one of the 3 people I know that I’m predicting to be having a girl, then I hope you like the headbands!

Thief and Bandit
If you have ever read Bleubird Vintage blog you will have seen Thief and Bandit pop up every now and again. Despite specialising in children’s printed leggings I think my favourite items personally would be the women’s fabric cuff bracelets.

All fabric is hand printed and all items are handmade in Canada. The prints are all fun and quirky and different which I love. I kind of wish she did scarves!! The label is such a nice alternative and unique to everything mass produced out there. Stick on a pair of Freshly Picked’s leather moccasins with a pair of Thief and Bandit leggings and a plain colour top and you have one trendy little one!
