Last week, Portia and I did something that made it into her work at school. (You know something has left a lasting impression when… ). We had a really cool opportunity to go for a private fit session at iviva, Park Royal now that Portia can fit into their smallest size. Hard to believe my ‘baby’ is a size 6 now, but it’s true, and it was very fun!
I have been a pretty huge fan of lululemon since the company started in 2000! I was hooked the very first time I slipped on a pair of their pants. It’s safe to say that 90%+ of my athletic wear is still lululemon. I just love it! Fast forward 16 years and I have 2 daughters of my own, who already love to be active. Good thing, lululemon created its own little daughter company, iviva. Now, my daughters get to fall in love with active wear the way I did all those years ago.
Any company that promotes health and well-being for kids catches my attention right away. iviva has taken it a step further. iviva doesn’t just create technical & cute athletic wear for young girls to perform their best in all their activities (sizes 6-14), they are also creating a community for these young girls.
iviva provides experiences that connect girls through movement, and encourage them to dream big.
All iviva stores (and showrooms) are community spaces that quickly transform with moveable fixtures to host complimentary events like dance, yoga, run clinics, and a variety of athletic classes so she can try new activities, make new connections, and have fun.
Portia LOVED that we were out shopping for her, not out running errands or getting groceries. She couldn’t believe it. Admittedly, I tend to buy the girls clothes when I am alone. It seems easier to move around that way sometimes. Little did I know, Portia really enjoys the whole process.
We left iviva with so many great pieces that Portia feels great moving around and playing in. The headbands with grip on them (called Stick It Headbands) have honestly made our life so much easier. It’s challenging to keep Portia’s long, thick hair out of her face, and these headbands do the job! We actually have a hard time getting her out of her pants (which she has named her ‘mommy pants’ because they are the mini version of my lululemons) and her new blue sweater. I get it. Having clothes that you feel good in. I just totally get it!
Our next step is going to be to get Portia to one of the Sunday morning yoga classes because she was as equally impressed to hear about them as I was.
If you haven’t yet checked out iviva for its clothing or its community events, get in there!
