5 Lululemon Looks Without the Pricetag
If you know me, like even just slightly know me – you might have seen me around or something – then you would know how cheap I am. So cheap, that the only Lorna Jane or Lululemon that I own was given to my by my mum as either hand-me-downs or christmas gifts. In fact you know what? I just checked and I don’t even own a single damn Lululemon thing. Wanna know why? Because fuck paying fucking $80 fucking dollars for a fucking piece of material you damn well know probably only cost the fucking money hungry fuckers $10 to manufacture. Fuckers. See how passionate I am about this? I just swore the most I have ever sworn on my blog in a single sentence.
No, I’m definitely not a hoity toity Lululemon touter. Not that I’m judging any of you ladies (and gents) out there getting your Lululemon on, but I just have better things to spend my hard earned cash on. Like stationery! 😉 (I’m basically trying to say we all have our “things” so please don’t feel like I’m judging you for your active wear designer brand addiction.)
I much prefer to support local businesses such as Bullitt Fit Gear (their prices are out of this world!) or source my clothes from more affordable outlets…like trusty old Kmart. What has happened to Kmart lately? Or rather, what has happened to me?! First I write about pantry organisation using Kmart supplies, and now I’m fangirling their gym wear like they are the coolest thing since sliced bread!
Anyway, I’m digressing. Kmart recently did a whole campaign around their fabulous new active wear so naturally, smelling a bargain, I scampered off to the local for a sniff around. And what I have come up with, I’m sharing with you. Because for less than the price of a single item of clothing from Lululemon, I’m giving you 5 entirely fresh and awesome outfits. I’m even doing ridiculous active poses just to show you how good their active wear is to do active stuff in.
And for the sake of keeping things super simple and cheap, I’m even wearing $5 Rubi Shoes shoes that are perfectly acceptable for performing general aerobics in. I don’t recommend these for marathons, but general aerobics will do you just fine! (Disclaimer: do not take me as gospel. I could be wrong and these could completely ruin your feet.)
Look One: On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink
“Have you taken the picture yet?! My fucking abs man my abs!!”
Here you can see me sporting their fabulous pink exercise shorts, geometrical singlet and underneath that I am wearing a sports bra that, wait for it…IS REVERSIBLE. You’ll get to see some of that magic later!
And these fabulous sneaks are from Rubi Shoes, on sale for $5!
Total Outfit Cost: $41 (from top to toe) *Excludes undies.
Look Two: The Clash of the Hues
I look like a fish in this photo.
This is the reversible crop top! How amazing right?! Two for the price of one!
Total Outfit Cost: None, you already bought all these items for Look One 😉
Look Three: Turn Me Inside Out
#freethenipple Guys NSFW, don’t show your children, SAVE YOURSELVES!
The only gripe I have with the reversible tops is that the tag is then on the outside. Kmart, can you plz fix this? I, and all other Kmart Konvert active wear lovers will thank you for it.
These little gym shorts were also purchased from Kmart. #bootybootybootyrockingeverywhere
To make sure I wasn’t selling you guys crap, I actually did do a workout in these clothes. They passed the test. Nothing jiggled in the boobage vicinity and nothing was sopping wet so it does handle litres of sweat pretty well.
Total Cost of this Outfit: $12 for the booty shorts. You already own everything else ;-).
Look Four: Metallic Chic
Oh look – a new singlet and shoes! Completely changes the outfit right? And look how great this active wear is to roll out in! So great.
These singlets that I’ve featured are actually great and quite flowy, however I will say that this one (which features a zip I completely forgot to pose putting my phone into) is a little bit on the heavier side. But again, it does wick away the moisture quite well.
Total Cost of this Outfit: $17 (singlet + shoes – you already own everything else hehe).
Final Look: Back to the Future
Back to our first singlet again! But this time paired with cute little black booty shorts, because black goes with everything, and also sporting our $5 Rubi shoes metallic sneaks.
See how active you can be in this active wear? It’s groundbreaking I tell you.
Total Cost of Outfit: $0 – you already own everything 🙂
So there you have it! For a grand total of $53, you have yourself 5 fresh and fabulous active wear outfits to do, or not do, active things in! Tell me if you enjoy the looks! I certainly enjoyed modelling for them 🙂
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to buy more active wear in my active wear.
