I was checking my feed today for new store pics, when I saw this come up:
I clicked through, and lulu’s post basically features a list of lulu products, packed in a lulu bag, for a vacation.
Some of you may remember my post a couple months back about packing for my cross-country trip:
In my post, I talked about going to a hot climate and doing some working out during my trip. And of course, the entire point of the post was “can I do it all in a carry-on”. Lulu’s post hits those same exact 3 points (and it’s not really even summer anymore when talking about vacations and hot climates makes more sense!).
I’m really undecided how I feel about it.
On the one hand, it could be a complete and total coincidence, and I’m just being sensitive. There’s nothing new under the sun, right? I don’t want to get my self-important panties in a bunch if it’s really nothing.
On the other hand, there’s always an element of frustration if someone uses your ideas without credit. Obviously I would much rather them share my actual post if they liked my idea.
On yet another hand (3 hands? why not), imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as the saying goes, and it would be pretty flattering if lulu was taking cues from me.
What do you all think? Coincidence or copycatting?
