I want to start this post by saying that I know very little about LuLaRoe and also I am not a fashion blogger, just in case that hasn’t already been made apparent by my wardrobe faux pas over the years (fun fact: faux pas is the same both singular and plural!). That said, I like to experiment with what I wear and step outside my comfort zone whenever possible, so I was super excited when my blog friend Lauren and I each won an IG giveaway for 10 items of LuLaRoe clothing. All of it was a surprise because I don’t know what dresses everyone is wearing this summer and what the hot new legging designs are (a friend and I were joking that it might be a tossup between Skittles and giraffes).
Yesterday I had a try-on session with my LuLaRoe haul and there were some clear hits/front runners, some things I’m not quite sure what to do with, and some obvious misses. Let’s take a look!
Kimono (Shirley). If I were shopping and I spotted this on a rack, it would be in my cart. It’s something I would wear every day and it’s already in constant rotation in my wardrobe. I love the lightweight and breathable material, and the length is perfect for bum covering.
Final verdict: You complete me.
The everyday tee (Classic T). I wish I had 10 of these. It’s the perfect length (though personally I think it’s cuter tucked in front), super soft, and comfy. Short sleeves are great on days you are dying of heat but you haven’t shaved your arm pits (oh, like I’m the only one!).
Final verdict: want one in every color.
The casual duster (Sarah). I actually got two of these (one in dark grey, the other yellow) and they are very long and soft, but better for fall days/cold winter nights. Very versatile.
Final verdict: super cute; glad I got two!
Mermaid dress (Cici). Granted, I don’t think the gladiator shoes are doing me any favors here, and maybe nude heels would have been better? I love the neckline of this dress so much and def prefer the blue to the orange (received two of these as well); I just find it so unflattering. I feel like it shows off the areas I try to hide (my tummy, mainly) so I’m not sure if it’s possible to suck it in long enough to feel comfortable. Also the material is heavy, but maybe this would be cute with a thick belt? Someone help me.
Final verdict: unless I can figure out a belt situation I’m not sure we can make these work.
Floral dress (Nicole). Uhm, so this dress was kind of suffocating and I’m not sure if it runs small or if it’s just a tighter fit than other clothes, but the pattern is cute and I can see it working for a shower or brunch.
Final verdict: Good “occasion” dress but the size may not be right for me.
Polkadot dreams (Ana). I kind of think this dress is adorable. Unlike the Cici, I found this to be very flattering and it has a seam just along the belly that doesn’t accentuate what you ate for lunch. But where can I wear this? Also… does it look dated? Be real ?
Final verdict: want to keep; feel like I’m heading to a Butter Churning Convention.
The skirt with pockets (Madison). I was sent two skirts with my order and I def prefer the pink to the blue pattern but the length is weird. I’m short as it is and think these skirts make my legs look stumpy.
Final verdict: ? (in case that doesn’t show up, it’s a thumbs down emoji. Whomp!)
Plaid dress (also Nicole). I felt schvitzy once I put this on. Too much material and the pattern was too subdued for me.
Final verdict: not sure I can make this work.
Are you familiar with LuLaRoe and what do you think of my haul? Are there any items here that you would keep? What should I toss? Lmk in the comments! Also, is the filter on these photos distracting? Trying a new preset on Vsco and not sure if I’m sold yet. TIA!
