Shop The Look: Ivy Park By Beyonce Review

IVY PARK BY BEYONCE REVIEW

IVY PARK BY BEYONCE REVIEW

A few months ago (… perhaps it has been a year ?) Queen Bee (aka the gorgeous Beyonce Knowles) dropped her new fitness line, cleverly called Ivy Park. I was stoked to see the brand be immediately picked up and carried by the Hudson Bay here in Toronto. And I indeed was on the first in line to check out the new line…

Ivy Park Baseball Cap

I am wearing the Ivy Park Women’s baseball cap (in gray) and mesh basketball jersey (in black). They both fit super comfy! I picked up both the items at Hudson Bay here in Toronto (Eaton Center location).

Ivy Park Jersey – Black.

The line features yoga pants, tanks, sports bras and comfy sweaters! Although I do not own a pair yet, all Ivy Park yoga pants come in three different “waist” heights including a low rise and my fave, a high waisted style. I found this pretty innovative for a fitness line… as I am totally tired of seeing only low rise yoga pants! (FYI: low rise yoga pants are a DISASTER for curvy women… not suitable for those with #thickthighs!)

Overall the new line has some DOPE gear! The only issue is that (in my humble opinion) it is slightly over priced. The baseball cap picture costs $35, the basketball jersey $70! Here is a price list of some Ivy Park items sold at the Bay:

  • Yoga pants: range from $50 to $120
  • Sweaters: $50 to $70
  • Sports Bras: $45
  • T-shirts: $35
  • Tanks: $45
  • Shorts: $40

My suggestion for you is to purchase when the Bay has the line on sale… unless you are like me and want your hands on cool gear right away! Haha! I look forward to buying more items from this line, mostly because it is really well designed! All the Ivy Park items  that I own wash well and are super comfy … so perhaps worth the $$$ after all!

High Waisted Leggings Outfits: Shop The Look!

SHOP MY LOOK: GREY HUES!

Grey is a CLASSIC! Everyone owns something grey! I love wearing grey year round but especially in the fall and winter. Grey seems to be a good shade for any occasion! Luckily enough many brands offer yoga tights, leggings and of course sneakers in grey!

1Sports Bra

Umbro Grey (From Winners)

I picked up this sports bra at the local Winners. It is super comfy! I originally picked it out to use for a photo shoot… the only warning I will give is there isn’t much support so it may not be the best sports bra for those with bigger um .. you know!


2Leggings

American Apparel Nylon Tricot High Waisted Leggings in Charcoal

So this is gonna sound a bit cray cray but I own three of these leggings (in different colours)! They are my fave high waisted leggings. I wear them to workout … super comfortable. I always get asked where I’ve purchased these. American Apparel.Check out them out and pick up a pair! These leggings can be rocked any day.


3Sneakers

Adidas Originals Tubular Defiant in Grey 

Ok, so I own a whole wack of sneakers and these are literally my all time faves! They are Adidas originals! Called “Tubulars”… Adidas actually has a range of these shoes. Some are high top like mine, some are low top. They all look DOPE! I do wear these to the gym to workout. They are actually a perfect workout shoe as they do not have much of a heal and allow good grip. I do not use these shoes to run (although occasionally I do run in them to catch the GO Train!) haha! Check out the range of Adidas Tubular Defiants here!


4FOAM ROLLER

I picked up this foam roller from Winners. Winners/ Marshall’s actually has a pretty decent collection of foam rollers. This one is a step up from the regular foam roller. Basically, the texture on the foam roller makes it “stiffer”. I would recommend starting with a basic foam roller (not textured) and make your way up  to the rubble ones! Foam rollers come in super handy on those heavy leg days!
