Fabletics Fitness Clothing Store Comes to OC
We attended a preview event as a guest of the venue
Big news for us, fitness-minded people, looking for cute, and comfortable workout apparel in Orange County. We have a new Fabletics retail location which recently opened in The Shops at Mission Viejo. It was so exciting for me because I enjoy working out and I really like the Fabletics line. On a recent evening, I popped in to take a peek at the store up close.
While familiar with Fabletics; having used their monthly active wear service delivered to my home, I really love the idea that I can now try things on first. Like most, my body type is a little hard to fit, since I’m only 5’1 and basically have no waist. I’ve had great results during my membership, but occasionally I need to return an item for a different size.
Walking into the store, I was welcomed by a friendly staff who pointed out some of the new monthly featured pieces right away. I was drawn to the colorful tops in salmon, green and more of the new jewel tones. I really love how unique the styles are with varied cutouts, open backs and not just a traditional work out top. Of course, they have all of our familiar favorite styles too.
I’m a big fan of their capri’s and leggings; they fit well, the fabrics are in bright, fun prints and/or solids. The overall quality is a big win for me; I always hold them up to the light to see how opaque the pants are and do the seams feel reinforced enough. I run, do yoga, hike, head to the gym; I want my pants to be durable, breathable and cute! Plus, the waistbands are a big sell for me. Do they stay up or roll down? In yoga, I don’t want to lose my concentration adjusting and/or pulling up my leggings during a vinyasa flow class.
I am happy to report that I walked away with two new pairs of leggings; a standard black pair which is always a win and a lighter grey pair with a cool print. I wore them this past weekend at a yoga class; they are so soft that I felt like I was wearing my comfy pjs instead. Love them and a big win in my book!
Bonus, for all of you that are current members, you can go to the store location to fill your membership instead of doing it via the mail. While the mail order is convenient and always available, it is nice to see things in person from time to time. I think it’s a great move by Fabletics to offer this feature to members!
When you have the time or want to add some new, fresh pieces to your fitness wear, go check out the new Fabletic’s location. Remember, we can still be comfortable and fashionable while staying fit!
Fabletic’s new retail location can be found at The Shops at Mission Viejo (on the 2nd level near Nordstrom).
