DA Active Meet Up

Can you say LONG OVERDUE recap!?! Alex of DA Active came into Chicago the other week and I was lucky enough to catch up with her at one of her demos at Equinox Gym & have lunch with her as well!




Some of the displays …


And Alex’s head + fit body mannequin with DA Active clothing = Fun meet up! Open-mouthed smile


Alex & I!

I have been rocking some new pieces… this top & these capris!

Here’s me in the capris!


DA Active is one of my favorite brands of workout clothes, as I’ve told you before; as I’m now a workout clothes convert! Smile with tongue out


Can’t wait to get back into regular posting … went to two Cubs games last week and have been KILLING it in the gym, so I can’t wait to share all of that with you!

Although I’ve been somewhat MIA, I have been on Twitter (@vblean) & Instagram (vblean) all the time since I can do that pretty simply on my phone. Come join the fun and get all my crazy sweaty gym updates and instagram pics over there (What was I missing out on!?!? Why didn’t I join instagram like twelve years ago!?!?!) Talk about new addiction … Smile with tongue out


Coffee Talk!

    For workout clothes I usually just hit up Ross or TJ Maxx as they have great stuff at affordable prices!

  3. Comment by Maggie:

    I’m a lulu fan, but would love to try something new. I recall reading in comments about this brand that the sizing is a little different…Any input on how things run? For instance, if I take a 4 in Lululemon, how does that translate to da active?

    • Comment by vblean:

      I’d probably do a 6 … I usually get smalls in workout clothes but DAActive medium 6 is like a lot of smalls – and they stay tight, they don’t stretch out so I’d go a tad bigger than you think :-D

      • Comment by Alex from DA Active :):

        6 is my small :)

        Feel free to email me if there are any sizing questions I am more than happy to help!!

        Braided Tank and Running Tank run a little looser so downsize if you like things a little snugger

        Everything else is pretty true to size! :)

    congrats on passing that exam – one step closer to success! :) i don’t spend very much on workout clothes – not busty enough to need nice sports bras and i can never justify spending $ on something i’m going to drench in sweat. you look great, though!

    Congrats on passing your exam girl! Way to go! What a happy time in your life! I think I spend far too much on workout clothes, oopsy. I need comfy clothes to workout in though! Lulu is my love.

    Congrats on passing your exam! I love lulu lemon, they are expensive but worth the investment. I also like Marshall’s, Tjmax and Ross only if you have the patience to look around. I found a brand called Kyodan at Marshalls that I Bsolutely like but they don’t carry it often. It’s a hit and miss. The workout clothes are comparable to llulu but very reasonably priced.

  13. Comment by Sara @ Nourish and Flourish:

    CONGRATS, girl!!! So excited for you!! When do you graduate? I hope you’re celebrating this weekend! <3

    I actually hadn't heard of DA Active until I read this post! I'm going to head on over there right now and check out the goods. ;) I love Lululemon, but my grad school budget only allows me to shop there once or twice a year. I usually stick with Target!

    Happy weekend! <3
