Maximizing Your LuLaRoe Maxi

I can be such a creature of habit that it’s frustrating, but I’m determined to break this tendency, especially now that I’m wearing clothing that has such versatility! This video gives some great tips on making your LuLaRoe maxi perform delightful tricks. If you travel a lot, you seriously need to consider investing in some maxis to make your travel wardrobe go further!

And guess what! Now you can buy them from ME! Well, soon anyway. My sister and I are in the queue to become LuLaRoe consultants. Check us out!

Styling the Carly

In last week’s post, I talked about some of the ways you can play with LuLaRoe’s Carly. This video gives several different suggestions. Take a few minutes and you’ll see why it’s one of my favorite pieces!

And… My sister and I are so pleased with our LuLa that we’ve decided to become LuLaRoe consultants. We’re in the queue, waiting for our call to onboard, but in the meantime you can join our VIP page and get ready to experience the fun for yourself!

Carly

IMG_4136

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!

Styling the LuLaRoe Perfect T

I’ve only got one Perfect T, and it’s too short for most of these (Long torso here). I obviously need to invest in some more, because these tricks are GREAT!

And guess what! My sister and I have decided, after months of endlessly shopping LuLa sales, to become consultants! We’re still in the queue, but working on getting ready.  Check us out!

Selecting a Size – Leggings

img_3972

Since most LuLaRoe (LLR) purchases happen online, and most people begin their LLR adventure with leggings, it makes sense to address the big question: Which size? The quick, and mostly accurate, answer is that OS (One Size) fits sizes 0-12 and TC (Tall/Curvy) fits sizes 12-22.

I’m tall, but not so curvy. This made selecting my first pair a challenge. I’m 5’ 10”, weigh 160, and have a 30” inseam. Because of my height, I assumed that I would wear TC regardless of the fact that, in stretch jeans, I wear 6 and 8. I was mistaken, as I discovered in my first day of wearing these lovelies. They got baggy…quickly. I did try actually drying them in the dryer (Something you should NOT do with your LLR) in hopes they would shrink, but no deal. Before long, I knew I had just discovered my absolute favorite pajama bottoms ever. (I have them on right now, in fact!)

Yes, OS is short on me. Fortunately for me, all lengths are in style right now, so that’s not a problem. Also, while my legs aren’t big enough to fill out the TC leggings, they do push the OS leggings to their limits. Because of this, I am careful to follow their washing instructions. I either hand wash or machine wash on gentle, and I hang to dry. That way I know they’ll not shrink.

If you’re a size 12 and still wondering which way to go, consider both your height and the size of your thighs. If you carry your weight in your thighs, definitely try the TCs first. If not, and if you’re shorter, I’d opt for OS. Who knows? You may even be one of those lucky people who can wear both; then you get the best selection of all!

If you’re looking for a rep, I’d suggest…

Rock Your Roe with Patterns

Okay, whether or not you’re new to LuLaRoe, if you love patterns as much as some of us do, you inevitably find yourself wondering how you can possibly put patterns together and make them look GOOD.

This video is not perfect, but it is by far the best explanation I’ve seen on playing with patterns. I’ll be coming back to it for refreshers for sure!

Amos, the gal in the video, is a LuLaRoe consultant you may want to check out. Since posting this video a while back, my sister and I have also decided to team up and start selling LuLaRoe, so we’d love if it you’d check out our page as well.

It Started with a Prayer

IMG_4086

I’ve worn jeans ever since jeans became acceptable girls’ wear (Yes, I’m THAT old), and I’ve been growing increasingly tired of them. One day, while standing in my closet, I asked God to please give me another option—one that wasn’t slacks or skirts. Then my office manager started raving about her newest discovery—LuLaRoe—and how their leggings put everyone else’s to shame.

I did own one pair of leggings at the time, but they rolled down my belly (where I carry my weight). She explained that LuLaRoe’s waistband meant she never had to deal with that. She also let me feel of her leggings, and they were oh-my-goodness soft. The final selling point was that they come in the most amazing variety of prints and solids. So I “attended” my first online pop-up party on Facebook and purchased my first top and pair of leggings. I’ve never looked back.

As I said in my first post in this series, I now enjoy selecting my daily outfits. What used to be my least favorite chore has now become a pleasure. I also find myself smiling more when I look down and see peacocks or flowers or…FUN! Maybe I’m becoming a fashFUNista!

EDIT
This adventure continues with a prayer, too. I wrote this blog post over two months ago. Since then, my sister and I have decided to team up and sell LuLaRoe together; we believe in it that much!
