UGHHH LuLaRoe! [A Confession & A Real Ass Review]




Ugh Ugh Ugh UGHHHHHHHH! It pains me to write this.  No, seriously.  BRB while I go bang my head against a wall.   

AHHHHH Hold on. I can't even type this right now.   

Ok fine, here goes.  

Sigh.....
Soooo uhhh, I own a pair of LuLaRoe leggings?   I mean I guess that's not a question, it's a fact at this point. Wait wait! Don't click away. I know you might want to because I would have before all of this went down.  And before you fret....no, I'm NOT a consultant and I never will be. 

Now first of all you all know how i feel about products like that and in-home parties.  I mean I wrote an entire blog post about it here


Well, LuLaRoe was something I always avoided like the mother flippin' plague that it has become.  People are obsessed with these damn leggings and they search for the design they like like a mad person.  It turns out, not every consultant gets the same stuff so if you see a design you really like, you have to hunt for it.  Now, that's all way too much work for me.  



If I want leggings I'll go to TJ Maxx and buy some on clearance.  James didn't mind the hunt though.  You see on Christmas Day I opened one of my gifts from him only to discover... GULP.... a pair of Chihuahua LuLaRoe leggings!   Now I knew these existed because many people have messaged me to show me a picture of them (always with the disclaimer that they know I  don't like LuLaRoe but they thought of me when they saw them).
  

So anyways, I asked James how he found them and he said he asked his sister (a LuLaRoe consultant - you can find her page here) if they had any Chihuahua ones.  She said she'd hunt around for some and she found them and he bought them.  He said they were $25. 



So I loved them right away because they have chi-chis on them and they were from James.  

Then....
I put them on. 
I PUT THEM ON!!!!!
I wore them with a tunic top and some comfy ass boots.  

OMFG YO! 

They were so soft and comfortable right away. Everyone always says they feel like butter. THEY DO!!! AHHHH! What the hell?!?!?! 

So honestly I figured I'd just give you a real ass review of what I really truly think as someone who isn't afraid to tell it how it is! 


They feel so good...
Really, they do.  They are super soft and super cozy.  They don't squeeze me funny or ride up or fall down.  I could literally wear them as my skin and keep them on day and night.  



They are adorable...
The designs really are so cute.   



They are reasonably priced so far...
I mean if these end up falling apart in two months I'll be super pissed.  $25 for a pair of leggings is still a lot to me so I wouldn't be buying a million pairs.  But as long as they maintain their good quality I won't mind investing in 2 or 3 pairs total.  



They don't hold in my gut...
Unfortunately I wish they were control top like I normally wear because I hate my midsection be all floppy sloppy everywhere. So I will have to dress in a way that helps conceal my belly. 



I don't really NEED them...
I am careful how I spend my money.  Honestly, I'm just as happy with cheaper leggings.  I can forgo the butter feeling.  So I won't be one of those people that gets carried away. If I see another pair or two that's cute I may get them but I'm not going to stock up on tons and tons because it's just not realistic for my budget.  


It's More than JUST Leggings...
Honestly, I thought it was only leggings but no LuLaRoe offers a ton of comfortable, colorful, flowy tops and dresses.  I am obsessed with dresses and tunics and long tops that I can wear over leggings so I'm in Heaven now !



So there..I frickin' frackin' fruckin' admitted to owning some, wearing some, and liking some of those damn leggings.   

So why was I so against them before this? Well, could it be that maybe the whole craze of consulting for products such as dietary supplements, diet plans, and skin products has ruined it for me? Yes, absolutely.   I still don't want people bugging me about buying some.  I prefer to shop privately and quietly on my own terms.    I also was never of a fan of how you  just get added to the groups. But knowing what I know now, that technically is kind of how consultants had to spread the word.  Now, the product sells itself so people seek out Lula groups. 

So since I began writing this post I actually purchased a UNICORN!  If you don't know what a unicorn is it's basically a hard to come by pair of leggings.  Lo and behold I got into a group my friend added me to and there they were. Chihuahua leggings with a black background. I mean they look just like Pixie don't they!








The other thing about Lula groups is that there are weekly giveaways in each group which is how I ended up winning the pair of leggings I wore in this outfit below with a LulaRoe top.
Then I went over to my future sister-in-law's house over the weekend and I shopped through her Lula and OMG.  CUTEST AND MOST COMFY STUFF EVER.




So now I own a ton of LuLaRoe stuff and I love it and GET why everyone else loves it.  And it's honestly not the same as all those other things that people sell.   So I get it, I really do.


Now if you've read this far it means you might also be a LuLaHoe! Just like me... and if that's the case you're in luck because I'm hosting an ONLINE LuLaRoe PopUp on Thursday, January 19th at 7 pm.  For 24 hours you will be able to shop my hosted party through the Facebook albums!  If you are interested let me know in the comments below and leave your email address so I can send you the link for the party. I will be there the whole time to help you with any sizing or product questions and so will Vicki!  It will take place through Vicki so if you want to join her group in advance follow this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LuLaRoeVictoriaLynn/ 


So.... now that I got that off my chest... what do YOU think about LuLaRoe?  Have you been a LuLaHoe for a long time now?

  1. Ellen...Im like you when it comes to these leggings. My coworker is obsessed and is always coming in with these crazy patterns... the ones she picks are a little too bright and crazy for me (although I do love patterned everything!) but yes the searching does kind of seem like a lot of work, but also sort of fun....the doggy ones you have are so cute! Do they have jack russell ones hehe

    1. I don't think they do yet but they keep coming out with new ones. I'm actually completely addicted now haha

  2. I happily admit that I'm a LulaHoe. It all starts with your first pair of leggings. You know you're well and truly, shamelessly addicted when you, of your own free will, offer people the opportunity to stroke your leg to prove how soft they really are! Please send me a link to your online party and I'll happily browse!

  3. My best friend sells it and I was so annoyed because it's pretty pricey and I felt obligated to buy. And then, like you, I got leggings and fell in love lol. BUT I only like a few of their products for my body and I'm super picky with designs. So I still support her but haven't gone too crazy. I own four things total. Those damn leggings though are pretty magical lol!

  5. So I honestly have only vaguely heard this brand mentioned (from being added to groups on Facebook, actually, haha!). But until I read this post I knew nothing about them. So glad you love the leggings so much. Sounds like you're a real convert! Makes me want to check them out even!

    1. I mean trust me, I'm usually against all this kind of stuff lol so my friends are literally in awe that I am now a LuLaHoe lol!!

  6. I've never owned anything from here but I heard old things about the clothing including the leggings and dresses. I have a question, do you have to purchase the whole outfit or can you say I only want the shirt or the cardigan?

    1. No you can purchase each item on it's own. sometimes there are Outfits that have to be bought together but that is all dependent on how each consultant wants to set up her shop.

  7. I share a similar disdain for MLMs and have avoided LuLaRoe for the most part. A coworker did host a pop-up in-home party this weekend that I had no good excuse to not to go and I ended up buying an Amelia dress which fit one of my "wardrobe wish list" items and has pockets so that was ok. I only own one pair of leggings that I wear around the house so I'm not so into those, but had seen the Amelia before and knew I liked the style. I still prefer to shop at home or by myself with no pressure, but it was kind of fun and there was no pressure to become a consultant at least.
