Several months back, I was contacted by Jennie Allison who is a consultant for LuLaRoe clothing company! She offered to send us some items to review and we happily agreed. Who doesn’t want to try out new outfits? 🙂
I think it is interesting that LuLaRoe was started by a mother of seven children, and the name of the company contains syllables from her daughters’ names! They are also a direct sales company and while I am not familiar with their business opportunity (I’m not interested in taking on another project at this time!), I know that Jennie would be more than happy to provide info for anyone who may be wanting to start their own home-based business.
Back to the clothing though, we chose an Ana dress, a Lucy skirt, a Perfect T and a pair of leggings! Below are pictures and our review of each item:
This is one of the Ana dresses. It comes in seven sizes and many different pattern/styles. And I just realized – I didn’t take any pictures of it without the sweater! Sorry! The sleeves are almost elbow length and so I have been wearing a sweater with it on the cooler days. Also, the neckline is barely too low for my comfort level if I am being active. For standing or sitting still, it’s fine … but for bending over or moving around a lot, the sweater provides the perfect coverage. Plus it matches! (I borrowed it from Abigail!)
The Ana is a floor length, knit maxi dress. I pretty much stopped wearing dresses in my early teen years because I couldn’t find ones that I liked but I like the style of this one. We were also pleasantly surprised to find that it was too long! Since most of us wear our skirts/dresses ankle length, it is uncommon to find clothing items that are too long but Abigail actually shortened the hemline a couple inches on this dress. I like that it is fitted but not skintight.
And I know this isn’t really a picture of the dress but they took it while I was wearing the dress and it was too cute not to share! I absolutely love the expression on Rennah’s face! We are certainly blessed to have friends with cute babies 🙂
This is the Lucy skirt. It comes in seven sizes and a variety of colors/styles. It has an elastic waistband and this one has lace drapes over a built in slip. There are others styles that are solid prints – chiffon.
As you can see, it is also floor length. It is very comfortable and the lace adds an elegant touch.
I only have one picture of the leggings but they are the most comfortable leggings I have ever worn! I generally avoid leggings in the wintertime because they are so uncomfortable and prefer to wear pants under my skirts whenever possible. But these fit so nicely! I have seen so many different colors and styles of LuLaRoe leggings … I do believe they have hundreds to choose from!
The Perfect T – it comes in eight sizes and numerous colors/styles. I especially liked the sleeve length … I prefer to have sleeves come almost to the elbow and so many t-shirts are shorter than that. I also like that the Perfect T is longer and flowing, making it a good option to pair with skirts/pants with a tight-fitting waistband.
While it is not advertised as a maternity shirt, it would make a good one! We like that although it is very “roomy” … it doesn’t feel bulky, or like you’re wearing a potato sack!
And what would a photo shoot with Abigail be without a goofy picture? I honestly don’t know what she was doing here but it was amusing nonetheless!
My overall assessment: I like the styles and quality of LuLaRoe clothing. It seems to be a good investment. The only drawback, personally, is that much of their clothing is made with polyester fabric and our family tries to avoid synthetic fabric as much as possible. So obviously, this would prevent me from filling my closet with LuLaRoe 🙁
But if you don’t have a problem with synthetic fabrics, I would highly recommend checking into this company as a source for modest clothing. And Jennie is offering all of our readers a 10% discount if you choose to purchase anything, and any orders over $100 will receive a free pair of leggings! You need to contact her personally to take advantage of this offer … send an email to lularoejennieallison[at]gmail[dot]com and tell her that you found her through our blog!
