Spring Wishlist Part 4: Cocoon Wrap (Scored!)

Monday, March 01, 2010


I met the nicest girl (whose name escapes me, but who was just so sweet) at the Spinach Vintage sale, and pretty much accosted her because she was wearing an amazing, assymmetrical, drapey cover-up that I excitedly thought was the Swacket. (Oh, Swacket! How I love you, but I have not been able to justify your $500 price tag!)

Turns out she was wearing the Lululemon Athletica "cocoon wrap" (above and below), which may not wrap a million ways like the Swacket and is actually more of a sweatshirt than a coat, but which is also a somewhat affordable $118. (Also apparently very popular. It's disappeared from their website since just yesterday!) I skedaddled over to the Logan Circle Lululemon after the sale closed Saturday and snagged the last dark gray one (they still have black and light gray). It is awesome. I predict I will wear it *constantly*. Thank you, very nice girl, for the great tip!

Love these! I was actually at the Clarendon location on Sunday evening and I believe they still had the dark gray there, as well as light gray.

ACH! My friend Shanika has this and I wanted it too, only to find out it was sold out (last season). Damn! That thing is amazing! <Must find!

Hey! That was me! I'm glad you snatched up the sweatshirt/wrap(?)! I'm not sure what to call it but it's definitely a good $120 to drop, as I've worn it practically every day since I bought it. Very versatile and its kind of inspired me to purchase more asymmetrical tops to drape underneath...i don't know if that's a good idea, fashion-wise, but i'm going for it anyway :o)
