Fit.Fashion: Ellie’s Cosmic Love Collection

Hey All,

Ellie released their Cosmic Love collection last month and I decided to pick out a few pieces to add to my bevy of spandex and tank tops. The entire collection is pretty cute – lots of blue, black, and neon yellow with flattering cuts and details – but one top/bottom combo in particular caught my eye: the Wish Upon a Star Tank and the matching Cosmic Capri. Very celestial, indeed. If anything catches your eye, feel free to click on the banner above for 20% off!

Ellie Wish Upon a Star Tank - The Fit Wanderer

The Wish Upon a Star Tank looks a little complicated but its criss-cross back is super comfortable and definitely adds some flair. The pop stich lines that curve down the sides of the tank are both sporty and flattering. The one problem I have with this tank is that there is a bit too much material at the bottom that tends to bunch up, but overall I would recommend it from both a style and functional point of view.

While I tend to dislike capris in general, the Cosmic Capri  is an exception to the rule. The top of these capris cinch in at the waist so they not only stay in place while running but also are very slimming. I love the touch of color at the bottom of the capris outlined with blue style lines. The devil’s in the details, and that’s why the clothing that Ellie designs really stands out.

One thing to note – do not throw these capris into the dryer with towels. I unfortunately made this mistake and you can see the white pilling on my calves from the towel material. Ah well – I have to pay more attention the next time I do laundry!

Fit.Fashion: Love Lululemon but Hate the Price?…Meet Ellie!

Ellie Hot Tropic Bra_To Dye For Capri 1 - The Fit Wanderer

Hey All,

I don’t know about you, but if it were up to me I would spend at least 90% of my time in spandex and Nike Frees. Alas – this is not really an option for me since I have an office job, but when I do get to don athletic attire, I like to have some fun with it. Bright colors, daring cuts, various brands – I’m a fan of it all when it comes to gearing up to sweat it out.

The crème de la crème of women’s athletic wear these days is the yogi master-of-the-universe, Lululemon. Now I’m a huge lover-of-luon myself, but I can’t go around buying a pair of $100 yoga pants every month (as much as I would like to). You can’t either? Meet Ellie!

Ellie logo

Ellie is a brand-spanking new women’s activewear company that specializes in beautifully-designed garments to kick ass in at the gym – that won’t leave you completely broke. The company is the brainchild of co-founders Marcus Greinke and Lindsay Daniels, who both have strong backgrounds in retail apparel and design (take a look at their monthly collections – they know what they’re doing). Marcus and Lindsay decided to take their collective experience to launch Ellie as an e-commerce site after realizing the huge gap between Lululemon and well, pretty much every other activewear brand in the category.

Similar to Lululemon, Ellie uses high-quality materials and meticulous design elements to craft their products, however production is vertically integrated (all products are designed in-house at their LA studio), cutting the time from design to wearable product down to two months. Basically the entire production process is more efficient from beginning to end and the cost savings are passed on to the Ellie consumer. Score!

The Fit Fashionista Club - Ellie

Ellie fans can buy individual items or subscribe at $49.95 per month to the Fit Fashionista Club to receive two items of their choice. If members don’t make their selection in time, Ellie will send a surprise pairing of their latest monthly line. In this case, surprises are definitely a good thing.

I signed up to the Fit Fashionista club a few months ago and have been pleasantly surprised each time I receive Ellie’s signature pink, metallic envelope in the mail. Check out the pictures below of me testing out the Hot Tropic Bra and To Dye For Capri from April’s Coral Crush Collection.

Cute, functional, and affordable – Ellie is officially my new best friend.

Sparkly Soul.

Sparkly Soul red headband

Hello there.

I felt compelled to share with the world how much I enjoy my Sparkly Soul headband. I usually don’t wax poetic about hair accessories, especially when it comes to those I wear while working out. Heck, I usually don’t even buy headbands. Too  “Blair Waldorf” for me. However, something had to be done about my crazy curls bouncing everywhere and clinging to my face during every climb and tap-back in spin class.

My uber-cute Sparkly Soul headband is no-slip, non-headache inducing, and adds a bit of glitz and glamour to my otherwise sweat-drenched attire. I highly recommend purchasing one to add a bit of flair to your hair when working out because, why not?

I promise you’ll feel like a rockstar if you wear one.

I def do.

Forever wandering,
