This is my first posting for my new blog, Good Old Lululemon!
I am a Lululemon fanatic. (Yes, I’m aware of the blog, Lululemon Addict which I read faithfully, but she concentrates on new merchandise. I’m also aware of Lulumom, and I’m sure we might have run into each other in our mutual neighborhood!).
I have embraced the Lululemon lifestyle to the nth degree and have for years. I think the one thing I think of everyday is: ‘Do one thing a day that scares you’. I took up yoga because of Lululemon.
I was reprimanded at work because I wore a pair of Lululemon yoga pants to work on casual day even though they looked nicer than the cheap pair of Walmart maternity pants my supervisor dared to wear in public. Go figure.
I have been adding to my collection of Lululemon for years. I live a few blocks from the first Lululemon store in Kitsilano, Vancouver, British Columbia. I have seen the meteoric rise of Lululemon from the first store on West 4th Avenue to what it is today!
I believe that I have one of the largest, if not the largest personal collection of Lululemon clothing, accessories, bags, etc in the world!
I have to admit that I was curious as to the total number of Lululemon items that I do own which is why I decided to create this blog. Other normal people would buy an item, wear it and then dispose of it some way, but I haven’t been able to do that. I admit that I am an unusual type of hoarder!
After I finish documenting all of my collection (a few at a time per post), I’m going to get rid of most of the pieces. I lost my job recently so I’m going to reluctantly have to sell most of my collection.
I think that because of where I live, I was able to find pieces that were not available to other cities. One problem I have is identifying the pieces. Although I probably visit any of the many Lululemon stores here at least twice a week for the last several years, I never really paid attention to the names of anything, aside from the Scuba hoodie! I don’t know why…it never occurred to me to remember any name.
So if anybody can help me and identify anything for me, please let me know. I’d really appreciate it! You know how they had the long thin strips that they said to rip them out? Well, I did! So I don’t even know what sizes everything is either!
Some people have given me their Lululemon castoffs over the years as well. They likened me to a Lululemon curator of sorts. But now, they think it’s getting out of hand and are urging me to get rid of stuff as well.
Thanks for reading!
By the way, if you’re interested in buying anything I post, please do let me know!
PS: At this point I would NOT want to buy anything from anybody. Please don’t offer to sell me anything.
Update (July 7, 2015)- I am still a Lululemon fan! I have yet to post all of my collection. I do it whenever I get around to it. Although I’ve been planning this for a while, I am going to try and start selling this fall.
