Have you attended a LuLaRoe Pop Up?

Let’s be clear – I’m a girl, and I’m not exactly on the petite side. I’ve been self-conscious about what I wear my entire life. Going through my wardrobe every morning has literally been torture – it used to seem that, no matter what I put on my body, my every unsightly roll of pudge would be exposed. It’s been an inner battle just to go out in public.

Ever since I discovered LuLaRoe clothing brand, I’ve become the confident woman I’ve always wanted to be …

It all began with my first LuLaRoe pop up showing. My best friend, Kate, who has a much better body than me, decided to host her first pop up through my favorite independent consultant LuLaRoe Robyn Vollenweider. I will put her contact below. Robyn was who introduced me to the brand and really, anybody who starts up their own business is freaking awesome, aren’t they? And a clothing business at that! If only I could find a job where I did exactly what I love, and got paid all day for it! Woman power!!

LuLaRoe Pop Up

How a LuLaRoe popup show works

Unlike other clothing retailers, LuLaRoe doesn’t operate through brick-and-mortar shops like JC Penny. Instead, independent hostesses and consultants order their own stock, then set up “parties” for everyone they know where they sell the clothes and take a cut of the profits.

Kate was the hostess, and I was invited among the rest of our girlfriends – although I really didn’t know any of them, since I don’t go out often because let’s face it, I’m not too confident in my body. The LuLaRoe hostess schedules an appointment with an “independent fashion consultant,” and then she invites all her family and friends to come over. Kate literally had an entire shop set up at her home. There were racks and the entire shebang – as soon as we walked in, everyone went crazy!

It was at my friend’s popup party that I was introduced to this spectacular clothing brand. Unlike any other clothes I’ve tried – and, trust me, in my quest to find a way not look like Jabba the Hutt in public, I’ve tried on literally everything – LuLaRoe shirts are the ONLY line that actually make my extra ass-ets 😉 actually look like great assets!

Of course, I had the best customer service experience I’ve ever had while shopping with LuLaRoe. Why? Because with Robyn, she is also one of the best and friendliest consultants that I have ever met! She knows more about what I need from my outfits than any other fashion expert in the market. If my very best friend tried these clothes on and went absolutely gaga over them, I know for certain I can trust this company with what I put on my body.

LuLaRoe Is For The Plus Size Girl

I’ve been to several other pop up parties since my first one. So far, I’ve collected two Julia dresses, the Irma tunic, and an Amelia. Here are some of my favorite features about these clothes:

– They’re versatile, you can easily switch between pieces and make dazzling outfits with every combination

– All of the clothes have been created with outstanding quality

– Every outfit has its own unique character and flavor – each one stands out vibrantly from the rest

– They look great on any body shape (even mine!)

– Having a LuLaRoe pop up party and shopping for clothes is lots of fun with your girlfriends especially with wine involved, hehe.

Ladies….arrive early to these parties, and you’ll have the widest selection to choose from. If the hostess sells an item from her pop-up collection, too late, game over, it’s probably gone forever which is the cool and exclusive fad about this brand.

Maybe you wanted to get the girls together for a day of shopping, but you wanted to hang in the house and have tea (or wine) and cheese. When you shop with LuLaRoe, you can do BOTH at the same time!

Maybe you don’t personally have any friends who are hosting a LuLaRoe pop up. You can get help setting up your own! To do this all you have to do is find a LuLaRoe consultant near you. These Independent consultants are very eager to serve you, once you connect with one through a VIP on Facebook, they will come to your house and set up shop right in your home. Then grab the phone, text all your friends and family, bring them over, and let the pop up party commence!

What’s the best part? (Besides, of course, having clothes that don’t actually make you feel worse than being naked). When you buy the clothes, you take them straight home! No waiting weeks for an order to come in. Also if you are the hostess you get crazy rewards. Yep you heard me right! Because we bought so many LuLaRoe clothes at Kate’s party she received a ton of free stuff. Some consultants give you discounts and even free clothes depending on how many pieces sale at your pop up.

So jump online and find a LuLaRoe consultant and book your next pop up……you will thank me for it later.

How to wash LuLaRoe for Dummies

Ever since the inception of LuLaRoe in 2012, ladies all over America have been in love with the beautiful designs that come in many types of these women’s clothing. In addition to having bright colors with unique designs, LuLaRoe clothes are comfortable and can have you turning heads at different occasions whether it’s a fun night out, a wedding, or at work. You probably have a few LuLaRoe dresses, skirts, or leggings stacked in your closet or laundry basket right now as you read this. As much as we love LuLaRoe, it can be a pain taking care of your Lula clothing particularly when cleaning them. LuLaRoe clothes are made using delicate fabric that may wear down if not cleaned properly. I ruined a couple of good pair of LuLaRoe leggings before getting the hang of cleaning them. How you clean your LuLaRoe will determine how long it stays looking as good as the day you first wore it. Below is a simple guide on how to wash LuLaRoe clothes.

LuLaRoe washing instructions……..first things first

The first thing you need to do is separate your LuLaRoe from your other dirty clothes. You can have a separate laundry basket for your LuLaRoe clothing. You may clean all your LuLa together if you are sure none of them has bleeding colors. You don’t want to risk ruining all your precious LuLaRoe clothes just because of one bleeding legging! If you are unsure or it’s the first time washing a new piece of LuLaRoe clothing, it is advisable to wash it alone so that you can know if it’s bleeding colors or not.

Different types of LuLaRoe clothing have different recommended methods of cleaning. Let’s take a look at some of the nitty gritties of caring for different LuLaRoe clothing items you may have in your collection.

How to wash LuLaRoe Leggings

Now this is where dummy comes into to play. This name fits me perfect after owning and ruining five pair of these leggings before learning how to care for them. LuLaRoe leggings are made of an amazing double brushed cotton that is one of the softest fabrics I have ever felt. As comfortable as they are, they are also super delicate. If you want to prolong the life of your LuLaRoe leggings, avoid washing them after every wear even if it means fighting your OCD. The more you wash them, the faster the signs of wear and tear will appear. When it is time to wash them, follow these simple steps:

1.Turn them inside out to keep them from pilling
2.Wash in cold water
3.Use gentle washer cycles when machine washing. Hand washing is also recommended for leggings
4.Air dry the leggings to prevent staining of the fabric

How to wash LuLaRoe

Kimonos and Lace skirts

Like the leggings, kimonos should only be cleaned when you have to and not after every wear. Hand washing is recommended as you run the risk of snagging on your machine if you choose to machine wash. You may lay the clothes on a towel and squeeze out as much water as possible before air drying them.

All other LuLaRoe clothes

1.Turn inside out
2.Wash in cold water on gentle cycle settings
3.Air dry

How to wash LuLaRoe clothing

Extra tip: Add one cup of vinegar to a gallon of water and soak your LuLaRoe clothes for about 30 minutes before washing them normally. This will preserve the beautiful colors on your LuLa wear so that your clothes can maintain their new look for years to come.

I have to give credit to my girl LuLaRoe Robyn Vollenweider who shed some light on all that I have learned about this brand. If you are in search for a consultant like mine feel free to join Robyn’s group HERE.

LuLaRoe Shirts – Beautiful Surprise for Big Ladies

LuLaRoe Shirts – Beautiful Surprise for Big Ladies

Ok so I am a big full-bodied woman! I am not fat, call me fluffy if you will. Like you, I sometimes have a hard time finding beautiful clothing to go with my beautiful body. Too tight here or too lose there. Which was why I was so impressed when I found the LuLaRoe Clothing brand.

LuLaRoe specializes in women’s clothing for all sizes and especially for ladies like you and me – plus-size and proud of it. It makes me mad when main stream retail outlets say they have plus sizes and then you only find 1X maybe a 2X in the range. I don’t want to look like a tube of toothpaste- squeezed in all the wrong places!!

Plus-size clothing is not all they do, they also have a unique way of selling and distributing their products. You won’t find them in stores, oh no, they have a network of consultants that do that for them. These girls sell the clothes and even organize parties where a bunch of girls can get together, share some wine and gossip and of course, spend their husband’s money on lots and lots of clothing.

About a month ago I was invited to just such a get together, my girl, Suzanne was hosting it and all the girls from around the neighborhood attended. In the group we just about had every size represented, and that was the first thing that impressed me. This consultant had something for all of us…..LuLaRoe shirts, dresses, pants, leggings and more. Super bonus points there let me tell you. Rarely do you find a consultant with so many of the styles LuLaRoe carries.

Shirts, pants, tees oh my!

For me personally I really loved the shirts and the leggings. I have always struggled finding shirts that fit. But I don’t have that problem anymore. I can’t wait to show my man! So, let me tell you why I like them so much. LuLaRoe shirts have the best cut that I have ever seen for women of my size and all sizes really. Being a big girl with big assets, it’s not comfortable to walk around with so much tightness around my bosom. Also, if the shirt don’t cover my booty – it’s out! And my colorful personality is complemented by the patterns and bright colors of this clothing line.

As much as I am a proud big girl, I don’t like clothing that look one size too small. LuLaRoe shirts are fabulous! They fit right and cover what needs to be covered. The leggings are just the same, they have just enough extra material not to make you feel like you are being squeezed from the bottom, and they still look great!

Oh, I almost forgot! LuLaRoe use names for their clothing, so you don’t buy a shirt, you buy The Lynnae. Make me feel super smart and sexy walking around in my named outfit, haha.

Speaking of which, the reason why I am telling you all this. The clothes! Here is what I spoiled myself with and three of my absolute favs…

The Lynnae Shirt

Oh the Lynnae, now she goes wonderfully with leggings or a skirt. Remember I said I like to cover my assets? Well the Lynnae does that just fine. Long sleeve and light material make it fantastic in summer. The neck line makes me feel like flirting and the high-low cut covers what I need. She is slightly tailored which shows off my best features and assets! When I showed her off at the block party the other day I could feel so many eyes on me, the guys were enjoying, and the girls were not!

The Amy T shirt

You sometimes you just want to have a relaxed afternoon in the sun or walking around in the mall, but you don’t feel like dressing up, yeah you know what I mean. The Amy T is the friend you want to wear! Relaxed enough to be chilled but she can bring it if you need it. Amy has a dolman cut with rolled cap sleeves that mean she is beautifully shaped to fit your beautiful body. With buttons on the front you can choose how much of your assets
you show no matter the occasion. You can be out there if you need to, but you can also cover up if “the girls” want to take a rest. Amy goes lovely with pants or dress, so you can mix and match to your hearts content.

And my favorite LuLaRoe shirt of all…….the Irma!

The Irma Top…my ultimate favorite LuLaRoe shirt

LuLaRoe Irma

Oh, I love the LuLaRoe Irma so much, she makes me feel fantastic to be me! She fits so well it feels like it was made only for you. Her sleeves make her great to wear with my snazzy leggings when I go walking my little puppy. Irma also feels so nice around my ample assets, I can walk with confidence and look my best without thinking twice about if I am hanging out!

So, to all my Large and In-Charge Ladies out there – find you a LuLaRoe consultant and find your new best friend.

My rock…. my LuLaRoe consultant

I want to take you back to the beginning….to my beginning of becoming a new person. I want to talk about where I got my start and who took me to where I am today. I know she’s going to kill me for doing this but I’m talking about my very first LulaRoe consultant, LulaRoe Robyn Vollenweider. Some people come into your life for reasons unknown but affect you for the rest of your days. I really believe Robyn was that person for me. Before I get too much into Robyn, let me tell you about who are LuLaRoe consultants and what they do.

Get your fix from LuLaRoe consultants

A LulaRoe consultant is like a drug dealer in my opinion, ha, ha. I had to say this because many, many women tell me this.

A LuLaRoe consultant is someone who has went into the business of representing the brand LuLaRoe and sells you the clothes that fill your closet. There’s thousands and thousands of these consultants across this great nation but as you will come to find out you will find a few that impact you for the rest of your life and that you will deem your favorites. It’s really like anything else in life you have your favorite bartenders, your favorite restaurants, your favorite stores you name it. These consultants are nothing more than that. Some are better at customer service, some have a better inventory than others, and some do things that will downright annoy you. You have to find ones that fit your personality. These consultants sell their inventory through their independent Facebook groups. Oh man and let me tell you Facebook is a whole other ball game.

That’s right LuLaRoe is sold on Facebook

So to get down to the brass tacks, to buy these clothes you have to join these Facebook groups. And then these consultants will post their inventory or do live sales or other gimmicks through their Facebook groups. When you see an item you want you type sold, mine, got it and a host of other words that each consultant has picked for the purchase of that item. Just like your news feed will bother you, many things that these consultants post will also bother you. So for me I like a consultant who is direct and doesn’t do silly stunts and not post tooooooo much if you know what I am saying. I treat it the same way I treat my Facebook news feed. But in a way it’s a little different. Often times these consultants will send out invites to their group members notifying everyone of an upcoming sale. So you can accept and be on the lookout for the event. So you really don’t have to worry about seeing a bunch of post or get notifications that annoy you. Some consultants will have you running for the hills and some you just gravitate towards much like me and my favorite Lula lover, Robyn!

My happy place…LuLaRoe Robyn Vollenweider 

Robyn Vollenweider is by far my favorite LuLaRoe consultant and from Louisiana and comes with a lot of sas. I bought my very first piece of LulaRoe through Robyn. So throughout this blog and articles I post you’re going to see me give a lot of credit to Robyn because she really taught me everything I have come to love about this brand and often times was my psychiatrist just when I needed to talk, ha ha. While I’m sure I’m nothing more than a customer to her she meant so much more to me. I found comfort in her. I give her so much props for sticking with me through all my tough times. I swear customer service should be her middle name. I bombarded her with questions and she never let me go until I was satisfied with the answer. That’s the kind of consultant you need. You need one that will help you, answer your questions and most important ship you your items. No lie, I am a part of some other consultants groups and had to email them on several occasions asking when they planned on shipping out my items. It had literally been 9 days after paying and still no clothes.

LuLaRoe Robyn Vollenweider


That’s the beauty of this brand that I love. It’s an online shopping boutique. Where I live I only have a few consultants in the area so there aren’t a lot of options. But with the online presence of these consultants I can shop from whomever I want no matter where they are located. You might be asking yourself…..what about trying it on? Well after you buy a few pieces there is really no need to try it on anymore. You know how it fits so at that point it’s all about finding prints and patterns you like and laying down the plastic. Heck the consultants by me don’t even carry all the styles I like so I am forced to shop online. The other cool and interesting thing about this brand is many of the consultants will have different inventory than others. So people in your area may carry one thing and then a state over have same styles but completely different prints. This is how LuLaRoe has created such crazed like followers. If you see a consultant with a print or pattern you like you better buy it because the likelihood of you ever seeing it again is slim to none.

LuLaRoe Outfit Ideas

Check out this cool outfit that Robyn put together. She is amazing at this.

So if you are fortunate to find an amazing LuLaRoe consultant like Robyn Vollenweider, stick with them. Robyn is exceptional and you won’t find too many like her. She has a great inventory, puts together amazing outfits and has live and album sales. All that a girl like me could ever ask for.


The down and dirty on LuLaRoe

This post will be more educational than anything. Mainly a walk through of the brand for those of you who haven’t heard of it or have never purchased any of the clothing. I wish I can say I have never purchased anything, haha. No this brand has literally changed my life and my outlook on everything. In short LuLaRoe is a multi-level marketing type brand like many of the others, Mary Kay, Rodan and Fields etc. What this basically means is this is a brand sold by independent consultants mainly out of their homes and other media outlets. LuLaRoe has established a cult like following across America that has women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities fighting to find the piece that will spice up their wardrobe.

How LuLaRoe is Sold?

LuLaRoe is sold by what they call “fashion consultants” who sell these pieces of clothing through their online boutiques found on Facebook and other social media outlets. These consultants also hold in home pop up boutiques where women can come in person and shop but in a different environment then one would be used to at a department store.

Meet Deanne the brain child behind LuLaRoe:

LuLaRoe was started by this grandmother and mom who wanted more time at home with her kids. She wanted a way to be able to feel successful and work from home. Deanne Stidham is the brainchild behind this clothing brand that is turned fad to phenomenon. Deanne founded LuLaRoe in 2012 with her husband Mark. She named the company after her three oldest grandchildren, Lucy, Lola, and Monroe.

This cult like brand is mostly known for its “buttery soft” leggings but with the backstory of this brand it was started with a simple skirt and social media. Deanne Stidham was quoted on her website that she had designed a maxi skirt for her daughter Nicole, and after her daughter posted a picture of the completed skirt on Instagram, her friends went crazy and all wanted their own.

The founder built the LuLaRoe brand around modesty!

LuLaRoe Modesty

The fashion site Racked writes that “modesty” was behind the brand. “As a member of the Mormon faith,” the site explains, “Stidham wanted to create comfortable clothing that was also modest for women who were unsatisfied with clothing options at traditional retailers.”

The article notes that “LuLaRoe is incredibly popular in the modesty movement,” and sites like the Modern Modesty blog and others praise the clothing for having “modest but cute” styles. But the popularity of the brand was spread to women through all walks of life, Racked notes.

To be honest this is widely part my love of the brand. As a heavier girl or a girl who had a very hard time finding clothes that made me feel good about myself, LuLaRoe is clothing I could grab out of the closet and throw on and go out in public and not have a care in the world. With some many prints and patterns my choices are unlimited. It has changed my outlook and confidence level for the better. I am not ashamed to flaunt myself and never worry what people are thinking anymore.

Leggings made of “butter”

LuLaRoe Leggings

Anyone who buys a pair of LuLaRoe leggings immediately falls in love with them. Seriously it’s like you are literally walking around naked. True story……while at work one day I got up from my chair and while over a computer screen and coffee induced coma, thought for a moment that I wasn’t wearing any bottoms. How funny is that? These leggings are so soft it feels like you have nothing on.

One of the things that get woman so excited about the LuLaRoe brand is the scarcity of the prints and patterns. LuLaRoe has limited runs for each item with a maximum of 5,000, and, some as few as 2,500, certain popular prints are very hard to find, and in high demand. So as someone who has a hard time in finding clothes, when I find my pattern I really don’t have to worry about anyone else wearing the same thing.

Also with the leggings you have what the cult call “unicorns.” Basically in a nutshell these are hard to find and funny patterned leggings. These are leggings with cool designs on them like cupcakes, dogs, fireworks and so, so many more. Women go crazy over these unicorn patters and prints. I meant how cool is to walk around in leggings with your favorite things on them.

Made for women of all shapes, sizes and ages

LuLaRoe Plus Size

This has got to be the most talked about and prized declaration of this brand. These clothes fit women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. If you can’t find something on the racks at the department store you are bound to find a piece of clothing made by LuLaRoe that will fit your taste. Maybe you don’t like your bottom well LuLaRoe has a long tunic that will cover that! Maybe you don’t like your legs! Try LuLaRoe leggings or a maybe a Lucy or Maria to give you the confidence to take the town. I tell you the options are unlimited on what you can stock your closet with and feel good in. And it doesn’t stop there. If you have little ones, LuLaRoe has something for them too. They have leggings, shirts, dresses you name it.

If you have never heard of this brand I hope I have shed some light on the cult like followed fashion line of women across this great nation and if you already know what its about…….happy LuLa hunting!
