Yet, standing in line to get into the Lululemon Warehouse Sale, yesterday, I couldn't help but be a little baffled by the brand-obsessed culture we still live in today. The very company that built itself on promoting well-being and individualism has become a pop culture icon. What better indicator of this than hundreds of women (and a few men), of all ages, crammed into a line just waiting to be let loose upon racks and racks of sweatpants?! Then there was the wait for the 'fitting room' and then again to pay!
Still, we waited, and I bought an armload of 'deals'. So, really I am as hypocritical as anyone. Among my purchases, I came home with another pair of my favorite comfy pants for only $9! An extra bonus? This pair is made of organic, natural cotton... I'm sure my quads will appreciate the treat next time I scrub the house top to bottom. My bank account (and New Years Resolution) appreciates the price tag even more!
