Last year, a blogger friend of mine started raving about a pair of leggings she bought. She started talking about LuLaRoe, but I had never heard of them. I looked at their website, thought their clothes were cute, and went back to life as I know it without giving it much thought. Then about 6 months ago, I started hearing about LuLaRoe everywhere I went. Friends started becoming consultants. Friends of friends started becoming consultants. And they were posting fabulous stuff! I have to admit…I started to get FOMO…fear of missing out. I was worried that the whole world was wearing LLR and I’d never even tried any on.
Last month, I celebrated my 40th birthday and decided I’d use some of my birthday money to buy a few pieces of LuLaRoe. I looked for LLR consultants in my area and started randomly messaging them. Yep…I was messaging complete strangers asking if I could come over their houses and try on clothes.
The good news is I found a consultant that lived less than 10 minutes away and she graciously invited me over to try on clothes. And then I fell madly in love!!! Seriously! LuLaRoe has an amazing assortment of clothes that are made from gorgeous fabrics.
LuLaRoe Leggings and Clothes
I started with a pair of LuLaRoe leggings! People aren’t joking! The leggings are seriously buttery soft!!! I immediately chose 3 pairs…the paisley ones pictured above, a floral pair and a black pair. And I even found a pair for my 10 year old. If I let her, she’d never take them off. She said they’re the softest piece of clothing she’s ever owned. And then she asked why she got 1 pair and I got 3? Hmmm….good question!
Next I tried on a few Lucy skirts!
How fabulous is this polka dotted skirt?!?
The Lucy skirt boasts a custom, exposed, elastic waistband and a gathered, lined, floor-length skirt. I love the way the chiffon skirt drapes. It creates a romantic and feminine silhouette.
And to top off the look, I added this Tan Joy! I have to tell you that the Joy might be my favorite LuLaRoe style! The LuLaRoe Joy is a lightweight and breezy longline vest perfect for achieving that great layered look. The Joy comes in a feminine, custom made lace and features flirty side slits for added movement. This is a great pocketless piece to layer into your favorite LuLaRoe ensembles or to wear as a stylish cover-up at the pool or beach. The possibilities with Joy are endless! I didn’t think this style would be me, but once I put it on, I was thrilled! I’ve worn it over jeans and a tee shirt, over skirts, and over dresses. The lace brings the style up a notch!
I also ended up with this Black and White Striped Perfect Tee! It’s as buttery soft as the LuLaRoe leggings and can be worn dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with a pair of shorts. I added a Black Joy to this outfit to make the style perfect for a casual day out!
After I bought these things from a local consultant, I bought a few things online. Then a few more things online… And then I decided, I want to be a LuLaRoe consultant!!! So I submitted my paperwork!
I’m now waiting to order my inventory, but while I wait, I’m holding giveaways in my LuLaRoe group!

Info about LLR

2014 – LLR continued to grow, and creates own exclusive fabrics. Did $9.8 million in sales, 750 consultants and 23 employees.
2015 – LLR really starts to expand at unheard of rates. July 2,000 consultants and now, over one year later, there is over 26,000 consultants. Insane growth.
11 factories in the US, and other factories in 8 other countries. LLR makes sure that factories in other countries have clean, fair wages (They make more than Wal-mart employees.). 40,000 employees are working to create fibers for threads, create and dye the fabrics, cut and sew the clothing and finally package, tag and prep them for sale. The factories are 100% on solar power. LLR provides financial security to over 136,000 families in need of income.
Today 300,000 pieces are shipped out every day. This is more than they did the whole first year. The warehouse is working 24 hours a day/6 days a week. The California warehouses that fill orders for consultant has 600 employees. No plans to slow down – there is a new state of the art warehouse to open in 2-3 months will be about to send out 1.4 million pieces a day.
LLR design department comes up with 400 different fabrics a day in 3 color ways – that’s 1200 new points being produced each day to possibly go into fabrication. LLR makes only 5,000 pieces of each fabric than retires the fabric (excluding leggings). So their fabrics are always changing. Consultants do not pick the fabrics they get. Consultants get to pick the style and size and they are surprised with the box comes in regards to fabric.
