They’re Not Consultants. They’re Dealers.

I’m talking LuLaRoe here. I thought I’d come back, now that I’ve been wearing it several months, and share some more about LuLaRoe, why I love it, and…whatever comes to mind.

My almost-7-year-old granddaughter (Whose mom is a new addict) was in my closet recently and asked, “Is all of this LuLaRoe?” I laughingly assured her that it wasn’t, then glanced around just to confirm I was being entirely honest. Truly, LLR doesn’t even make up half of my closet…yet, I don’t think…but I have definitely been able to weed out a lot of other seldom-worn pieces because I no longer need them in order to have enough options.

If you’ve never stood in your closet, frustrated because you couldn’t find anything you wanted to wear, you don’t know what I’m talking about, but as I explained in It Started with a Prayer, in recent years I’ve considered morning outfit choosing a chore. I don’t anymore.

I cannot express how versatile LLR is. I do have a few “outfits,” but most of what I own goes with so many different things that I could conceivably take one piece and wear it several different ways in a single week. Also, as you’ll have seen (and will see) in some videos I’ve posted, people have found great, fun ways to tweak Irmas, Maxis, etc., to the point that they don’t even look like themselves anymore. I’m not very good at this myself, yet, but I’m determined to learn!

LuLa care is a little bit different. I don’t mix mine with anything else when it comes to laundry. I have a LuLa laundry basket, and I wash those things separately. Generally, I don’t hand wash; I put everything into a gentle cycle with cold water, and hang them to dry. One of the things I love about LLR is its tendency NOT to wrinkle, so hanging pieces straight out of the washer has never been a problem for me. I do know of others who put their clothing into the dryer for just a little while and hang them before they’re truly dry, and they’ve never had any problems with pilling or shrinkage.

I’ve heard it said that LuLaRoe is a fad that will disappear. I doubt it, truly. The company is great about designing both timeless and on-trend patterns, and several of their styles are classic as well. Most people still associate them primarily with leggings, but my most recent purchases have been dresses and skirts, and I can see having all of them for years to come.

Since writing this blog post, my passion for LuLaRoe has led ME into the business, so my sister and I are taking the plunge and becoming LuLaRoe consultants. Check it out!

AdDRESSing the Situation

IMG_3938

One tall girl frustration is that those of us who have long torsos can have a terrible time finding tops that are long enough. Even tops that are specifically designed to be worn with leggings can frustrate me because I refuse to treat leggings like pants. I want something to cover my backside and front. This means that, in many tops, I go up a size or two just to ensure I have sufficient length.

Another tall girl frustration is those cute, short dresses that we love on others but don’t dare put on our own bodies because… well, I’ve used the word obscene in reference to some I’ve tried on. BUT!

LEGGINGS!

Put one of those cute, short dresses on this long body OVER LEGGINGS and you have a look to love. Truly, I have one “top” in particular that has received tons of compliments. “Yep,” I say, “It’s a dress,” and their eyes widen in disbelief.

No need to avoid that part of the store anymore. Let’s dress it up, tall gals!

And if you’re looking for a LuLaRoe consultant…

EDIT: I used to have a friend’s name here, but since writing this piece I’ve joined forces with my sister and we are on the road to becoming LuLaRoe consultants. Check us out!

Carly

The Carly is one of my favorite LuLaRoe pieces. It’s a versatile dress/top that is especially perfect for tall people like yours truly. I can easily toss on a Carly and slip into sandals. I can also throw it on over leggings as it is or knot it up in myriad ways to give my outfit more interest while accenting the high-low hemline.

You have options!
Belt it or not, as you desire.
Jackets, vests, and cardigans take the Carly into a variety of settings.
You can layer other tops over it for a completely different look.

Don’t think they’re only for tall people either. Most of my friends love the Carly, and I have several friends that I can really look down on (In the literal sense, of course!).

Depending on the fabric, and how you like styling your clothing, you can potentially wear several different sizes in the Carly. I generally stick with the Medium, which fits me nicely, and the large, which I sometimes prefer. I suspect I could drop down to a small if I found the right fabric, and I could probably go up to an XL. This one really does offer a range of options!

EDIT: Since writing this piece, I’ve teamed up with my sister to start selling LuLaRoe. We’re not consultants yet, but we’re in the queue. Check  us out!
