Full disclosure: I do not sell LuLaRoe. I’d be just about the worst sales person in the history of ever. Mostly because I’d probably end up keeping all the stuff for myself and that’s probably not a great way to make actual money. This post is also not sponsored by LuLaRoe.
By now, you’ve been invited to 753 LuLaRoe sales groups. You’ve heard tales of buttery soft leggings. And you’ve probably seen top-knot sporting moms strolling through Target with a Starbucks drink in their hand and one of those wild prints on their shirts.
I was skeptical at first, loud prints are not my jam (although this Florida-loving girl was sad to miss out on a pair of pelican leggings – don’t judge) and I didn’t understand what the fuss was. I also work full time so a wardrobe of leggings & tunics just isn’t practical for my every day life, and I thought LuLaRoe wasn’t for me.
I. Was. Wrong. As more of my friends began selling those “buttery soft” leggings I looked further into their inventories in an effort to support their new businesses. It was like I was on Mythbusters: LuLaRoe Edition. And most of the things I believed about why I didn’t need, or couldn’t wear, the clothes were indeed proven wrong.
LuLaRoe Myths, Busted:
1. They’re Fancy Pajamas for Stay at Home Moms
I’d be lying if I said I’ve never slept in a pair of their leggings – they really are THAT soft – but if you look past that one article of clothing, most of the clothes are perfectly normal every day wear. I have several pencil skirts (to include basic black) that I wear to my very corporate job. I wore one of their dresses recently to a wedding shower, and I’m often throwing on one of their t-shirts for a Saturday with my family.
2. They’re Oversized and Baggy
Only if you want them to be (see above re: pencil skirts). They also have a dress that is pretty darn form fitting (and adorable for showing off a baby bump!) Do they have some more “forgiving” options? You betcha. And my post-baby bod is grateful!
3. They Only Have Crazy Patterns
Psst – almost every piece of their clothing that I own is a solid. I KNOW RIGHT. It’s a thing. All those pencil skirts? Solids. My dresses? All solid, some with a slight (on trend!) floral pattern. Do they have some patterns that make me raise an eyebrow? YES. Not all of us are cut out for stork leggings, but some are and I tip my hat to those ladies that can rock them.
4. Everyone’s Wearing It. It’s All The Same.
My coworker came in the other day in the cutest dress and I immediately asked her where it was from. “Kelly, this is LuLaRoe.” DUH. Ya’ll. Even within the same style of dress there is such a variety of patterns and textures and colors that I didn’t even realize that what she had on was the same style as a few of the dresses I have hanging in my closet.
Again, I want to mention that I don’t sell these clothes, LuLaRoe isn’t affiliated with this post in any way. I just like the apparel, and have enjoyed getting to support the women in our community that sell them…especially if they have pelican leggings in stock!
