I decided I was going to splurge on one item and I went to lululemon. I wanted to good hoodie to run around in. I used to shop at this store, back when money was growing on trees. When we were a two income, no kids household with a lot of disposable income - this is where I spent it. I had lots of great yoga pants and tops, hoodies, sweatshirts. Times were good.
I went into the store and immediately felt good - I love these clothes and if I had a million dollars I would buy them all up. Instead, I settled on one great hoodie -
I wear it everywhere and I LOVE the way I feel when I wear it. $88 is a ridiculous amount to spend on a sweatshirt, I get that. Believe me. But it made me feel like I HAD $88 to spend on a sweatshirt and everytime I wear it, I feel the same way. People comment on how great it is, how much they like it - complete strangers. And it has the little lululemon emblem on it and so people who know lululemon, think I am doing pretty good because I can afford lululemon.
Someday, my entire wardrobe will be lululemon. My closet will look like a store. I think I'll dream of this tonight. I know there are more important things in the world, but when I put this hoodie on...I forget about all of them...
