Why oh why do I always fall in love with things that are WAY out of my budget. Arghhhhhh! It's a constant thing, I swear. The topic of today's To splurge or not to splurge is Lululemon. Let's discuss...
So, I first fell in love with their product about 3 years ago when I was living in Chicago and they opened a store right outside of my office...LITERALLY 2 steps away...and this is when Equinox Fitness was also in my building and working out was my favorite past time (next to shopping, dining out and drinking of course...) At that time it was nothing to spend $50 on a workout top or $150 on one of their jackets. The one thing I had never bought was the pants. As you know I am A BIG Hard Tail fan.
Groove Pant and you better believe it was love at first sight. I felt suddenly slimmer, my legs looked longer, my buns looked lifted. They were AMAZING! then I looked at the price tag...$98. Yikes! This is practically the price of a pair of jeans! But, I know that the product wears well, and they were perfect.
In the end I decided to hold off on buying the pant. I have 6 pairs of perfectly good Hard Tail pants in my closet that are waiting to be busted out again at the gym (my resolution for '10). Until I am putting in some good time working out again, I can't really justify the $100 workout pants. BUT, you better believe that when I do get myself back on track, they will be the best reward!
What are your thoughts? $98 too much for a workout pant?
Have a good Friday everyone!!!
