So, today, I'm excited to announce that I've partnered with Jess (the creator of the gorgeous bows in the Sadie Sky Boutique!) and new LuLaRoe consultant!
Now I know a lot of people are skeptical about LuLaRoe. Heck, I was in the beginning before I bought my first item! I had no idea what size to order (the sizing is a little off your normal sizing so it's hard to know what size to get). Some of the patterns are WAY outside my comfort zone! But seriously, you guys, I'm not even kidding when I tell you, Jess has the best inventory I've ever seen. She has a great mixture of solids, stripes, patterns, and basically you name it, she has it.
Since she only started as a consultant a week or so ago, I haven't had the opportunity to buy too many pieces from her (I only have two from her, but I've been thisclose to buying so many more!), but I did want to show you the pieces that I do have and how I style them. LuLaRoe pieces are super versatile and you can dress them up or down depending on where you are wearing them. Trip to the grocery store on the weekend? Dress it down. Work during the week? Dress it slightly up. Going to see a play on the weekend? Going to a wedding? Dress it up some more! Seriously. One piece can take you from a casual weekend at home to a night out on the town.
Currently, I only have two styles - the Carly (dress) and the Irma (shirt), but I took a few pictures to show you how I normally wear them and how I could wear them if I wanted to dress them up. I mostly wear them pretty casually because I don't go to fancy events and my work is super causal, but just by changing a few accessories and your shoes, you can totally dress up either one!
Let's start with the Carly.
Both of these are size XS. And I NEVER wear in XS in anything. But like I said, these run big. Jess is awesome at helping with sizes so as long as you know you'e regular size, she can totally help you!
Carly's are slightly longer in the back, which I LOVE. Bending down to pick up toys or talking to Mason or doing whatever, I never have to worry about the back of my dress being too short.
I always thought that XS was my size. It fit and I felt good. And then I saw this one in Jess's shop and had to have it. But it was a size small. She told me not to worry, it would be fine, and you know what? It was fine! It's slightly longer in the front and back (see below for back) but not too long where I think it looks bad. In fact, if I didn't tell you that they were different sizes, I'm not sure you would even know.
Left is XS. // Right is S.
Notice slight length differences.
Add a scarf and sweater for Fall! (XS) // Casual look for the weekend with Converse. (XS) // Slightly more dressy with sandals for Summer. (S)
My go to size is an XXS. Again, I don't wear an XXS in anything nor have I ever. Or maybe since I was 10. But seriously, this size works perfect for me! 99.9% of the time, I wear them with jeans or shorts. But for variety sake, I opted to try them on with some leggings. This is an XXS black Irma with green one size (OS) leggings. While I would probably size up to a XS for length in the back, the XXS does cover my butt.
And MY GOSH was this the MOST comfortable outfit. EVER.
Another XXS Irma with OS black leggings.
XXS gray Irma with black jeans and Converse. Super casual yet still cute and put together. I tucked up the back so it didn't hang down.
Three ways to wear an Irma.
1 // Super casual with jeans and Converse.
2 // Slightly more dressy with a scarf and some flats.
3 // More dressy with a necklace and booties.
Left : I wore this to a birthday party this weekend. Super casual.
Right : With a scarf, jeans, and booties.
Two ways to wear an Irma.
1 // "Free flowing". The back hangs down over my butt.
2 // How I normally wear my Irmas, tucked under to look more like a "regular" shirt.
So, if you're interested in attending my online pop up tonight or even just interested in browsing Jess's inventory, you can find her group on Facebook here. You'll have to request to be added so leave a comment below so I know that you're interested and I can let her know to approve you.
