It’s back to school time. Time for us to pick up any school supplies we don’t already have in stock. It’s also the time to pick up some clothing for our kids. Our daughter is in college so she mostly rolls out of bed into sweats or yoga pant, a t-shirt then heads out to class, like most college students. Our son is not that big on fashion. All he wants is a couple of new jeans and a few t-shirts. He’s lost 40+ pounds since January (on his own) simply by watching what he eats, limiting junk food and hitting the gym a few times per week. He NEEDS new jeans because his old jeans are way too big for him.
Many parents, such as myself, could use some new pieces to add to our wardrobes too.
I happen to work in the school district, so I could also use some new pieces of clothing before school starts.
I work with children so I am able to dress comfortable and casual. I always look neat in appearance. And even though I wear comfortable, casual clothing that doesn’t mean I can’t look professional at the same time.
I have recently been introduced to the clothing line LuLaRoe. Are you familiar with the brand?
LuLaRoe is a clothing brand that sells comfortable, affordable, stylish clothing for women and children.
Their tag line includes “simply comfortable” and “where fashion meets comfort.”
LuLaRoe offers dresses, maxi skirts, pencil skirts, a-line skirts, sheath dresses tops and more. One of their best sellers are their leggings.
LuLaRoe clothing cannot be purchased from the brand directly. All sales go through consultants. Most consultants sell LuLaRoe clothing through home parties and online parties.
I was contacted by a consultant, Ashley, to try out some LuLaRoe clothing and offer a few pieces for a giveaway.
I did my research and read comments that others left online about the clothing. I also looked up images on Google and Instagram. I loved what I saw and I was super excited to do a review.
Prior to receiving the items to review, my husband and I went to a local street fair. There we found a consultant selling LuLaRoe clothing. As soon as I saw her booth I made a bee line to it. I wanted to see the clothing for myself.
The first thing I looked at was the leggings. Oh my! They are incredibly soft! I was totally impressed by how incredibly soft they are. You could LIVE in them! As in 24/7 – that is how comfortable they feel. I could not wait to receive my samples to review.
LuLaRoe clothing is also offered in MANY different designs and colors – from classic to totally crazy.
From what I can tell the leggings come in a plethora of designs – with new designs being added often. You could easily pair the leggings – even the wild looking ones – with a solid color top to create a wonderful, casual look.
On the flip side, the legging go great with dressy blouses for a more professional look.
Here are just a few examples. All of the pieces are from the LuLaRoe collection. All photos are copyrighted to Ashley. I am just using them as examples of the types of beautiful clothing available from the brand.
I am IN LOVE with these looks! Maybe not so much the red leggings (I would go for black or gray leggings for that outfit), but the rest I love.
LuLaRoe has fashions for average size women and plus size women. The plus sizes are known as “tall and curvy.” I am a plus size woman, so I would wear the tall and curvy fashions.
I received to review a blouse, skirt and leggings. I was super excited to wear them. Sadly, I’m just a bit too “curvy” to wear them. I am SO DISAPPOINTED! NOT in the clothing – but the fact that they don’t fit me.
The blouse does fit me. It’s a little snug for my personal taste, but I can wear it. I just need to find bottoms to go with it.
The skirt is really nice, and I could wear it, but again, it’s a bit too snug for my personal preference. I also don’t wear skirts at work since I am often crawling around the floor or in the gym or playground playing with the kids.
I am most disappointed in the leggings. I was looking forward to wearing them. They are SO SOFT and I bet they would feel amazing on. But I can’t get them past my thighs.
I wear 2X/3X for my tops and bottoms, depending on the cut/style. I see other plus size women online wearing LuLaRoe fashions (especially the leggings). They look to be the same size as me, but I can’t get them on. They get stuck around my thighs. I guess my thighs are too big.
So… I have not been able to wear and enjoy the LuLaRoe clothing that was sent to me to review, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love them. I WISH I could wear them! I love the designs and the feel of the fabrics. Most especially the leggings.
I plan on giving my aunt the pieces that were sent to me to review. She’s “smaller” than me, but still “tall and curvy,” so hopefully they fit her.
If you are interested in learning more about LuLaRoe – whether it’s to purchase the wonderful clothing or to learn more about being a consultant, visit Ashley’s Facebook page or contact her at AshleyMangini.MyLuLaRoe.com.
Ashley would love to give a lucky reader some LuLaRoe fashions too. They are all “tall and curvy,” so they are ideal for people like me with a little more “padding” on their bodies. LOL!
