Ellie Women’s Fitness Clothing “Posies in Paris” December 2020 Review
At the beginning of each month, Ellie releases new collections. You can choose which one you want or skip that month if you don’t want any of them and you won’t be charged.
My invoice arrived inside of this shiny rose gold envelope.
Cassie Hoodie by Jessica Simpson in Heather Goblin, Size L – Retail Value $60.00
I couldn’t resist the huge, bright flowers in the Ellie collection this month and I loved that it came with a hoodie and that the pants had pockets. This is listed as a cropped hoodie, but I am happy that it doesn’t actually seem like a typical cropped length top on me (it’s very slight) and instead it fit me comfortably. I love the heathered look and the different textures on the hood and upper part of the hoodie. It’s stretchy and not too thick which makes it a great workout option.
Tummy Control Legging by Jessica Simpson in Zephyr Moda Floral – Retail Value $60.00, Size L
These pocket leggings are soft and have a good amount of stretch to them which I’m thankful for since my hips seem to be expanding again. As for the tummy control, I think they worked pretty well and there is a mesh detail at the waistband that I think will help keep them up while moving around. The length was perfect on these, too. I couldn’t find these exact leggings but they have a few solid colors here, although those are ankle leggings while these aren’t listed as such.
Honey Tank by Jessica Simpson in Zephyr Moda Floral, Size L – Retail Value $40.00
This tank top is just as soft as the leggings and it actually fit me a lot more loosely than I expected. While it is listed as being supportive, there are no cups or any other layers inside so I would not be able to work out in this without a bra underneath. Fortunately, the looser fit meant a sports bra fit underneath comfortably. I love the criss-cross detail at the back and all of the beautiful details in the flowers that match the pants.
Verdict: I usually end up with some items from Marike each month after choosing my Ellie collection so this month I was a bit nervous about trying a new brand. I’ve never tried Jessica Simpson’s activewear before, but I was pleasantly surprised with how stretchy, soft and flattering these pieces were. I’m especially pleased with the value this month since two of these pieces retail for more than I paid for the entire box this month!
