I got an email this morning displaying Lululemon’s amazing new fall collection. YAY!!!
Wait… Booo!!! Damn that stuff is expensive.
I have an extremely strong love-hate relationship with Lululemon. The extremity of this relationship is so powerful, it inspired me to write a post about it.
On one hand, I very much love Lulu. The clothes are aesthetically extremely appealing – with their constantly changing colors, luxuriously decadent fabrics, and eye catching styles – it’s hard to not like…. Until….
You see the price tag. *Sigh*
Now I know, thousands of women across the country (and other countries) have felt this exact same way about this brand. Yet, do we stop lusting for it, buying it, and wearing it? No…It disgusts me, how much money a pair of stretchy yoga pants can be. Yet I still lust after nearly all of every collection that comes out, and let me tell you honey – I can’t afford it. This girl is the definition of “champagne taste on a beer budget.”
I suppose it helps a little that I receive their “R&D” Discount available to CrossFit trainers and the like…. Research and Development, eh? I think not… More like- “Take a very minor discount on our stuff, so you can parade around in it, and other women will want to buy it,” Ugh, I am their little show pony. Guilty as charged. Clearly, they have a killer marketing department…
I am appreciative, don’t get me wrong. Their products are great, I find myself reaching for my Lululemon workout gear, over nearly everything else I own… Even on days when I am not living at the gym…
But this time, I will Just say NO! DARE – To keep girls off Lulu (For now). My addiction will have to go on hold, until further notice… (AKA until a house & wedding are paid for….)
Guess my wish list will continue to build for a while.
Sorry Lulu – I still love you. Kinda.
