I am not even really sure when my love-affair with lululemon Athletica began. Thinking back, perhaps it was my first big purchase with Katie Hoff at Fashion Island in Orange County, California. Naturally, I splurged on the pair of pants that got everyone talkin’ luon…. their Groove Pants in black and bright blue. Yes, that was the day. However, perhaps it was my time at FIDM with Taylor Monk, creating patterns for 6-8 hours on massive drafting tables in downtown Los Angeles. Our outfits on those days never changed; decked out in Scuba Hoodies, Wunder Unders tucked into boots, our hair on top of our head with wide framed glasses intact. That then led to a beautiful year and a half on Beverly Drive at lululemon Beverly Hills, followed by another year at the Showroom in Louisville, Kentucky…. living and breathing the lifestyle in my luon clad attire. Regardless of where I am or what I am/have been doing, lululemon Athletica remains a staple in my wardrobe.
Okay, okay, so you have yet to experience the craze of all things luon? Want to hop on this bandwagon? You don’t have to tell me twice.
