Our blog artist Alison took the Not So Stuffy Puffy to a rainy Seattle music festival.
Puffy jackets have always been an enigma to me. The burning question in my mind was how does one look NOT so puffy IN a puffy? At 5’8 and roughly 145 pounds I do not exactly have what one would call a “petite frame” and I was deathly afraid that a puffy jacket would make me resemble Ralphie’s little brother in everyone’s favorite holiday movie, A Christmas Story.
However, the Seattle winters call for a jacket that is both warm and water resistant and when lululemon introduced a jacket that boasted both of these important features…well, I had to get my hands on that jacket.

While everyone was grilling out for the last summer hurrah on Labor Day, I was at a music festival in Seattle where the temperature didn’t get out of the low 60s and there was light to heavy rain. I was going to be there all day and into the evening and I thought this was going to be the perfect time to try out my puffy jacket.

I slipped it on and after one or two or twenty looks at myself in the mirror at every conceivable angle I came to the conclusion that this jacket outlines my silhouette and does not make me look huge at all. It almost felt like a second skin, it was neither bulky nor bunchy. The hood kept my ‘do intact so on the off-chance that I ran into Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas after the show I wouldn’t look like a frizzy mess.
The luon thumbholes on the sleeves kept my sleeves down so when I was clapping or dancing wildly I didn’t feel one raindrop or the wind. Most importantly, it kept me both warm and dry.
Warning: staring too closely at the Not So Stuffy Puffy can induce feelings of extreme warmth and friendliness.
