Tennis Love

I literally stopped playing in the middle of a tennis clinic because I couldn’t read the logo on a girl’s cute outfit.  


Believe me, I am a genius of discretion but I didn’t recognize the logo and I really needed to know what this fabulous outfit was!

Tennis clothing is a fairly tight family.  There are the behemoths Nike, Adidas, my personal obsession adidas by Stella McCartney and some others such as Lucky in Love, Monreal London, Fila and Chrissy by Tail.  


Attention please – there is a new kid in town and she is not messing around!  Yaffa Activewear, founded by Laura Preskin, is an entrepreneurial fashion startup that is delivering tennis gorgeousness, courtside and then off the court.
Influenced by ready to wear fashion, designed by a former fashion executive, Yaffa brings clever additions and unexpected details that absolutely set their clothes apart from the competition.  Blues, greys, brilliant whites and even spf treated pieces that reduce skin exposure to the sun.


Ruching is such a flattering addition to design, especially for the tennis set made up predominantly of women who have had children – there is only so much a daily plank can do, am I right?

Yaffa is available online and in various tennis and country clubs across the USA.  It can also be found in my closet…quite a few pieces actually, as I am a big fan!

Back to the Future Jacket

Futuristic Metalics are changing outerwear.


Outerwear needs to be warm.  Obviously.  But why not add a little color, texture or shine?


adidas by Stella McCartney has a fun metallic crop jacket that is ridiculously warm and efficient as a wind breaker.  Safe to say my hair speaks to the wind factor.

The fact that it resembles the delorean silver car in Back to the Future is the perfect reason to profile it on Back to the Future Day!

Bergdorfs Meets Lycra in the Burbs

Bergdorf’s in the burbs?  Dare to dream!

Unknown-1

First thought that popped into my head when I experienced LEGIT activewear, an online and retail boutique in Wellesley, MA, a suburb just west of Boston.


reversecommuter has been upfront honest about my dislike of the unimaginative yoga pants suburban mom uniform.  Legit is here to change it up.


Owner Lisa Goldberg (warning, she will instantly seem like your super fab sophisticated city girlfriend) single handedly tracks down the most intriguing design lines that will shake the lulu lemons right out of their tree!


LEGIT activewear is like the legitimizer of workout clothing.  Designer clothing for actual workouts…it is like the directions on how to wear lycra are found right in the name of the store.  Take what you worked out in off after the activity, but feel free to wear the gorgeous jackets, outerwear, cashmere, etc all day long.


Tennis lines such as Monreal London and Adidas by Stella McCartney, brilliant colors and the necessary tennis white all included.

Banging out those pre-marathon miles just got a whole lot sexier.  Leggings from Lucas High, Michi, Charli Cohen with mesh, neon, ribbing, cutouts, seriously these are the clothes that make you jump out of bed and want to hit the pavement!


Spinning class outfits just got so real you are going to ask them to keep the lights on so your outfit gets appropriate admiration time.  Snakeskin prints by Human Performance Engineering, and Ultracor’s Camo crops and leggings with a shock of brilliant yellow neon beg for a SoulCycle diva showdown extra long class!


Yoginis rejoice!  More Spritual Gangster than you thought possible and Out Incorporated’s mesh side leggings will make the most stylish zen bendy in town!


Pheel blends lycra with metaliics to deliver a superhero feel to any workout, and let’s face it, carving out time to workout is a superhero feat with our schedules ladies!


Cool down jackets and wraps from lines such as Nesh, Vimmia and Alala will make it imperative to run a couple of errands after your workout, too luxurious a statement not to make.


See you at the checkout line…or is that the now Chic-out line?
