In a world full of Tastefully Simple, Scentsy and Jamberry...we now have a clothing line: LuLaRoe.
I first heard about this company around December of last year. I'd never heard the name prior to that ( even though, I guess, they've been around for a while ) A friend of a friend came to a bonfire wearing Christmas tree printed leggings and she was raving about how comfortable and soft they were. Now, these leggings were a little "loud" for my taste, but they were soft AF. She went on to briefly tell us how she got them...and after that, I never really thought about it again.
Then last month, I was invited to a "pop up party" ( those new to the brand: a pop-up is a "online shopping day" where the consultant will post her inventory and then everyone invited gets to shop ) I was skeptical at first and had no intention of buying anything. Well, during a pop up they do "giveaways" to earn LuLa Cash towards purchases. I thought, "Why the hell not?"...and I ended up winning $10. So, even though leggings are $25/pair and I'd never tried a pair on before, I could easily validate getting $10 off of that and then if I didn't like them I could easily sell them or give them away.
Well...I got them. One pair of leggings. And I FELL IN LOVE!
Ladies, if you ever buy something from LuLaRoe, you need to purchase leggings. They come in prints AND solids, so if prints are too busy for you, you have the other option. But they are seriously the softest and most comfortable leggings ever. And they are SO FORGIVING! It's a yoga pant waistband ( so no elastic cutting into your stomach and making you look rolly ) AND the material doesn't thin as it goes on your body ( like your butt/thigh area ) so no pantie show-through! Annnnd, for as smooth as they are, cellulite doesn't show through, either.
And guys, these are a GREAT gift for your ladies. You won't want to keep your hands off her ass in these leggings.
But anyways...since I loved the leggings so much ( and I know with companies like this, if you have a party there are usually some perks ) I booked a pop-up with the lady that did the one I attended. And well, the perks of hosting a LuLaRoe party are quite nice.
1. When you host a party, you get 1 pair of free leggings. Your choice on print, BEFORE the party starts.
2. For every 10 items you sell, you get to pick an item for yourself free of charge. At my pop-up, I sold about 21 items ( including 2 I purchased myself ) so I earned 2 free items plus my free leggings.
3. When in-between a 10-item mark, you get a percentage discount. So I got about a 15% discount on what I had bought out-of-pocket.
So altogether for a total of 5 items, with tax, I would've paid about $185. Instead, with my hostess rewards, I paid $57. I saved $128!!! And I got all of this:
And although ( so far ) I boast the company, I'm not saying that the shit isn't expensive. I wouldn't go to the store and pay $25 for leggings, or $48 for a dress. But there's just something about this company that women go batshit for. Some women pay hundreds of dollars for what ladies call a "unicorn".
A "unicorn" is a print that is no longer available in pop-ups. It's vintage or discontinued. Some leggings ( LEGGINGS, PEOPLE! ) go for $100 on eBay! I saw one lady posted a screenshot of a print that was going for FOUR HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS! I joined a buy/sell/trade group on Facebook of 63k ladies and you would not believe the banter and nastiness I've seen in only 2 days of being on there. These women go HAM and it's a little scary.
Ladies maxing out credit cards. Draining bank accounts. Getting themselves in debt over LuLaRoe. But it's not the companies fault. Addiction to shopping is serious and costly, and LulaRoe is definitely banking it in over the crazies that are out there.
Seriously though, if you have self-control and want some really comfortable leggings, there are LuLaRoe consultants EVERYWHERE. I will also probably be having another pop-up before Christmas if anyone is interested in an invite.
Happy Saturday, ya'll!
