LuLa Roe My Honest Thoughts


I try really hard not to be a "bandwagon" fashion buyer. Remember those cute pointy-toed heels with studs on them that were all the rage a few years ago? Yea, didn't buy any of those - as cute as they were, I'm glad I didn't spend my money. I try to purchase mostly classic, timeless pieces, especially if I'm going to be forking over a pretty penny.

So when LuLa Roe came at all of us (mostly teachers) like a freight train screeching through the night, I resisted. What can I say, I was born with a rebellious attitude. I continued to resist, until my serious FOMO wrangled me into making my first LuLa Roe purchase. I grabbed a Madison in a beautiful lavender color. When it arrived, I wasn't incredibly impressed for the price. And to make matters worse, the Madison is still hanging in my closet, impatiently waiting to be worn :/ 

I figured my experience with LuLa Roe would end there, and I simply wasn't a LuLa Roe gal. Maybe my style is just a little too different than that of the brand. So I all but gave up, went back to Old Navy, Banana Republic, J. Crew, and all of my standard go-to stores, and called it a day. 

So when Sarah from @lularoelovekarensarah contacted me about a possible collaboration, I figured I'd give the brand a second shot. Sarah sent me some beautiful pieces - two leggings, an Amelia dress, and a Carly dress. After spending a few days in each piece, I've compiled an honest review of each below. 

Carly Dress: I truly love this piece, as the fabric is quite substantial and soft. I like styling it with a belt, a side tie, or a denim vest. Definitely my favorite LuLa Roe piece! :)


The Infamous Leggings: They're comfortable for sure, but because they're one size fits all, they don't really fit me all that great. I tend to dress more conservative and preppy, so the unique patterns aren't really my jam - although I know others absolutely love them! Contrary to the other prices, the leggings are a decent bargain! 



Amelia Dress: What I can I say? I really do love the flattering design of this dress. But the material is less than desirable. The top of the dress has a nice, soft material, but the skirt part of the dress feels stiff and on the thin side. For $65, I would expect a more substantial material used for the skirt. That doesn't take away from how much I love the flattering design though! 


All in all, I do like LuLa Roe, but you won't be finding me searching high and low for any specific piece. I think my personal style is simply different than their target audience. However, I know many of my teacher friends love this brand, so feel free to try some pieces out and form your own opinion! :)

  1. I tried LuLaRoe a month or so ago and I agree, I wasn't all that impressed overall. (https://goo.gl/QM27UX) I did like the pieces I was sent but I felt like the fabric wasn't worth the price-tag either. The one thing I thought was - as a blogger - I like the idea of supporting women who are running their own businesses. That being said, what I really wanted to try was the Amelia dress and the Nicole dress. I'm glad to hear your review of the Amelia - probably not worth it for me. I still would like to try the Nicole though. I've heard it has thicker fabric.

  2. I just can't get on board with LulaRoe! You are spot on when it comes to the "freight train" screeching through our hallways. As a teacher, my building is completely filled with the stuff. I have purchased two items with my own money (not sponsored, not sent) and was disappointed in the quality. Yeah they were soft...but the fit and wear was horrible. That being said, while it's not my thing, you styled your outfits beautifully and look really cute!

  3. I've never tried LulaRoe. Just like you, I don't like following trends. I like buying timeless pieces that will last a long time and won't be out of fashion in a couple of seasons.
