New TranquiliT Clothes & Happy Friday {Listmania}

by Valerie on July 10, 2009 · 17 comments

Just got back from a shopping session at the TranquiliT showroom with the wonderful Kimberly. I had SO much fun.

I got the All-in-One Wrap (in noir)- Kimberly already had the longer one in stock! It’s not up on the website yet, and it is $20 more than the one currently up on the site, but it was well worth it. If you are a taller gal, you should totally email This version of the All-in-One is about 4-5 inches longer as far as I can tell. I am just under 5’10 and love the length. {additional note: the longer All-in-One will be available on the website in September}

Oh another tall gal alert – the leggy, the TranquiliT bamboo legging, are also great if you are tall.

I also picked up a couple of pieces on sale in Slate, including a cardishawl (see picture for cardishawl in a different color). Slate was a color from last Fall/Winter and it’s gorgeous (and on sale). If you don’t yet own any TranquiliT pieces in Slate I highly recommend it. It’s one of those super flattering grays.

This was a lovely mid-day break – I am so glad today was actually quiet enough at work I could run out and go to the TranquiliT showroom.

I am so looking forward to the weekend, and especially:

*sushi date night with husband
*bookstore time
*wearing my new TranquiliT clothes
*more organizing of my vanity / mini-desk / creativity area
*late afternoon naps

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Before I run off, let me recommend three blog posts from the last couple of days that are filled with great information and inspiration:

Karley at Chic and Green tells us about the best natural beauty products available at drugstores.

Melita at Gussying up the Tuttle reminds us a daunting task can be turned into an artist’s date.

Kiki at The Prosecco Life has a great post on the benefits of the proper bra fit.

Hi Ladies -thanks for all stopping by. I had the best time – I have to say, when you dont shop for a while and then go on a little spree like i did today, it is SO fun :)


7 messybaker July 10, 2009 at 10:24 pm

Sounds fun! I checked out the website and I definitely need a wrap in bluebonnet. The slate color sounds divine too!


8 Lauren July 10, 2009 at 10:28 pm

I NEED the longer all-in-one! I am so glad to know it's that many inches longer! Any idea when they'll have it in the studio or online or what colors it's going to come in?

I have the hoodie in slate and I love it! So glad you shared this with us!

Messybaker – Bluebonnet is a gorgeous blue :)

Lauren – no idea on the details beyond that it's definitely available in noir :) (hugs my wrap). I did see some samples of another design in the fall colors and one is a beautiful dusty blue – it would be gorgeous in an all in 1. If you look on Kimberly's blog in the March posts the swatches are pictured (March 11) and on March 18 she says the fall colors are 1, 9, 10.

Don't know which colors will end up being made in the All in 1 though.

ooh- I love the cardi-shawl! The all-in one looks great too (Have been watching the demos-fun!!)
The size drop-down doesn't seem to be enabled- does that mean they are out? I wasn't sure what the default size was..



11 Kiki July 11, 2009 at 7:35 am

As soon as I saw this in twitter, I had to come right over. So glad they had the longer length for you! I'm trying very hard not to envy your shopping success. Your weekend sounds wonderful – you'll be wearing your new dress, n'est-ce pas? And posting pictures?

Thanks so much for mentioning my post on! It's a cause dear to my heart – literally :-)

Sounds like a WONDERFUL shopping trip! How fun…My clothes shopping yesterday involved a 4 year old and 5 year old in the fitting room as I attempted to try on dresses with them yelling "I see Mommy's booby covers" for all of Macy's to hear :)


13 Ivy July 11, 2009 at 6:25 pm

Glad to hear you had such fun. Have a nice weekend.


14 kimberly wilson July 11, 2009 at 7:35 pm

SUCH a treat to have you swing by, city girl! your weekend does sound divine – idyllic.

the longer fall version of TranquiliT's beloved all-in-one will be available in all the fall colours in september. ooh la la! noir is a must-have. visit to see illustrations and video on multiple ways to wear the dress or to have one custom made.

merci beaucoup for sharing your love of TranquiliT with others. and an even BIGGER merci beaucoup for the oh-so-yummy cupcakes! xo


15 kimberly wilson July 11, 2009 at 7:37 pm

p.s. no size drop down for the all-in-one because it is a one size piece! xo

Thanks for the comment, V. I hadn't picked a color- which is why i couldn't see the sizes..(duh..*smacks forehead*)
