I get emails daily from companies like Lululemon, Athleta, and Skirt Sports advertising new items and amazing new clothing that I should buy and "hey, come check out our great junk that only lottery winners can afford".
Yesterday I received an email with this image in it:
I really like #3. Let's check out how much it costs, shall we?
ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY EFFING DOLLARS! FOR AN EFFING JACKET! WHAT THE EFF!?
Oh and Lululemon has this awesome purple scarf for sale. I could use a scarf for running in Winter and it's my favorite color.
Yeah...it's $42. For that price, it better do the running for me.
And this? This "layering tank" from Athleta? This regular, ol' racerback (my favorite kind) tank top?
Thirty Four buckaroos. In fact, their website won't even let you search "by price". I was curious what the least expensive item in the store is, but nope.
Because it's kind of fun going down my wish list of things I can't afford, let's keep going.
So, anyhow, you get my drift. Are enough people really buying these things that these companies think these prices are reasonable?! I'll just keep on wishing...and shopping for workout clothes at Target.
And now, because that was kind of depressing and also what kind of week would it be if I didn't share some of the amazingness I've found on Pinterest lately, I bring to you...some funny shit!
I was watching I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant a week or so ago and it literally made me want to pull my brain out through my nostrils...and donate it to those women.
There are so many people in my life who have no idea they have an Emily-created nickname. I would like to note, however, that Hot Gym Guy is no longer one of these people ;-)
I thought I wished Pippi could laugh...but then I
remembered she sees me naked.
|Umm...yeah. I need these.|
Have you seen anything amazingly awesome lately that I need to see?
Are you annoyed by how expensive workout clothing is?
