Do You like My Leggings? I Bought Them at Lululemon, Full-Price

Oh, hi there. 

I saw that you were staring at my leggings, haha. Don’t you like them? These sleek Wunder Under High-Rise Tight Snow-Washed Ribbed leggings are something else. You could say that they’re the height of athleisure. They’re comfy and stylish enough that I can wear them to my 8:00 A.M. Soulcycle session with Anya AND look cute in my 10:00 A.M. lecture two hours later. 

Oh? Where’d I buy them, you ask? Lululemon, full-price. 

$128 is honestly such a steal for leggings this good, though. Why would you ever want to invest in some trashy, subpar $30 leggings from a company as pedestrian as Nike? They don’t even look that cute, and, honestly, they just don’t show off my ass and privilege as well as a full-price pair of leggings from Lulu’s can. 

But just because my dad can buy me several pairs of Lululemon leggings without making so much as a dent in his wallet, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t compliment them. I mean, have you looked at these things? It’s practically impossible to NOT drop a compliment. As I said, they’re soooo comfy, and I think they really make me seem like a hands-on type of girl, you know? The kind of woman who does Soulcycle AND [solidcore]. A woman who isn’t afraid to sweat a little bit but also a fun-loving gal who buys three downtown tickets for a single night because she can’t decide which one she wants to go to. 

I know that for some girls Lulu leggings just aren’t attainable, and, honestly, I empathize with them! I really, really do. That’s why we need, like, free community college and stuff. But until then, I’m going to keep my eyes, heart, and mind open, and let these Lulu leggings take me on a journey to a healthier, happier, and more elitist me.
