As a yoga instructor I am always searching for new yoga clothes because when I walk into the yoga studio the majority of people are wearing lululemon … including me! So, I was really excited when a new active wear brand asked me to try a pair of their leggings. Inspired by contemporary ready-to-wear, Denise Lee created Alala as a line of active wear that can take you to the gym, to work, to a fun night out with friends. The vibrant colors, mesh tees, and printed athletic leggings have a downtown New York attitude.

Alala is the Greek goddess of war cry.

Just like a pair of jeans, I am looking for amazing yoga clothes that do it all … flattering fit, feels fabulous, washes like iron, and looks fashionable. The Alala Take Sides Knee Tight met all of my expectations!

I received so many compliments when I wore these legging to a Vinyasa Flow yoga class. The legging inseam is 16″ which even works on petite bodies. The mesh panels on the outside of both legs create a very slimming look and I felt very sexy wearing them. Like all yoga pants I recommend you do the “bend over” test to check for transparency. These leggings are part white so I did have to wear flesh colored underwear.

Functionally, these leggings were excellent. There is a key pocket on the front belly panel and a back zip pocket for your mobile. All of the seams are flat to prevent chaffing as you move from pose to pose. The fabric, made of 72% Nylon 28% Spandex, dries very quickly. Even after washing the legging kept its shape!

One thing to note, Alala is a luxury line of workout clothes, so the price point is higher. Pieces of the collection range from $75-$180. If you are looking for high quality activewear that stands out from the studio crowd then Alala is for you.

Alala offers free ground shipping on every order. Like the Alala on Facebook, or follow their Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest updates.

Frank Body Coffee Scrub

No, Frank is not the guy I am dating! It is an all-natural coffee body scrub the Australia-based company Frank Body sent to me to review. I am always looking for all natural skin care products and, I have to admit, the branding of Frank Body caught my eye immediately. I was totally turned on […]

Apparently, I have a small potbelly that grew over the winter months. This is the same potbelly I worked so hard last year using Weight Watchers to get rid of. Call it winter weight, blame it on the Christmas cookies, whatever … it is a potbelly and it needs to go. Now that Spring is […]

I have a confession … I never saw the movie Captain America: The First Avenger that came out in 2011. I did see The Avengers (loved it) and have been making an effort to get up to speed on the entire Marvel movie franchise. So, I wasn’t totally ignorant when I went to the screening […]
