One thing I like most about Beyonce’s new Ivy Park fitness line is the prevalence of the number 4. Like Beyonce I was born on September 4th. For my fellow Virgo Queen Bey, 4 has been a significant number throughout her life and her daughter’s name Blue Ivy is a reference to the Roman numeral IV which means 4. While I’ve never met Beyonce in real life, I feel a special connection to her through our birthdays and now through this fitness line.
Lately, my obsession with ClassPass has resulted in a significant wardrobe change. I’ve become obsessed with looks that can go from studio to street which means lots of fab brightly colored yoga pants.
I think I’m really starting to understand the appeal of basically living in workout gear. I often find myself wearing it to places like the movies or a casual dinner even if I don’t have a workout class after. Here I am going from barre to brunch in my Cory Vines Lane Print Leggings. Life is good!
As you probably already know from all of the pink ribbons around, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Both retailers and individuals themselves do great work not just this month, but all year around so that someday we will live in a breast cancer free world. I was very touched by BodyRock Sport’s release of the Empower ‘Em line this month containing the first post-mastectomy sports bra. Now, women who have conquered cancer can now also conquer the gym.
Though I’m lucky to not have experienced the tragedy of breast cancer in my family, I feel that it’s my duty as a digital public figure to create awareness of the issue. BodyRock, founded by fitness and fashion guru, Kelly Dooley, has always been committed to bringing fashion to the world of fitness. Socialites and celebrities alike are often photographed going to and from the gym so it’s important to be stylish while working out or at least color coordinated. Aside from sexy styles that will have any woman feeling like Kim Kardashian at the gym, they also feature unique fabrics and distinctive embellishments with smart details, such as built-in ipod pockets, zippered compartments, and comfortable tagless labels.
