The Lululemon Luxe Effect

Image

I finally succumbed to trying the latest trend in yoga fashion, lululemon. I usually would just save my Victoria’s Secret old t-shirts and pants and workout in those, but it was only a matter of time before I began seeing lululemon pants and workout gear showing up to the yoga mats all around me on the regular. I started to feel out of fashion and sloppy. Almost crunchy, like how dare I put on these old clothes when I can be fashionable, fabulous and fitness-savvy?

I didn’t even use the fitting room, I just figured what my size was and took a go. Of course, being that I always like looking for the deals, I wasn’t about to make a regular priced purchase – I made it work from the sale rack. Got my first pair of yoga pants for $76, marked down from $92, and my first tank top for $32 marked down from $42. Yes please, I’ll save $26 anywhere I can.

I slide the pants and shirt on and wow, I feel lighter already. Toned, slimmer, and ready to hit the mat. Unfortunately, I was going to a vinyasa flow class and didn’t realize how sweaty I would get. I rolled up the pants into capris about halfway through the class, but other than that, I left feeling even lighter and still feeling like I could go to lunch or run errands without everyone knowing I had just burned a bunch of calories.

Yes, lululemon is addicting, but there is just something about feeling like you are put together even when you are working out. It’s an extra dose of self-esteem for the fashion-conscious female who is all about fitness. 🙂

Do you have an experience (good or bad) with lululemon fashion? I’d love to hear it in the comment section below!!
