LULAROE: PART TWO
Since my first review of LulaRoe I have purchased new items. Their collaboration did indeed bring us Disney prints for Halloween however they did not do Christmas prints, unless you count the Nightmare Before Christmas they released with their Halloween villains collection.
I scored some Disney villain prints and incorporated a pair into my Halloween outfit, seen here. I only purchased leggings from this collection as I still think some of the prints and patterns are a bit too bold for my taste and seeing them in large scale as a shirt still kind of scares me (sorry).
I have made purchases of their more expensive items recently; the Carly dress and the Joy vest. I still keep eyeing their Sarah sweaters however at $70 each, it is a large pill to sallow. If I am being totally honest, the only reason I purchased a Joy (retail $60) was because a shop I followed was going out of business and offered 40% off each item, sadly they did not have a Sarah that was my size in a color I liked.
The Carly dress, $55 for their standard collection and $ for their Disney collection is a high-low, short sleeved dress with a pocket on the chest that alone, does not offer much in terms of shape. However, (and this is why LulaRoe is killing it) shops often style the Carly with a Classic-T or a Perfect-T that you then belt and the dress becomes a shirt and a more formfitting piece of clothing. You can also belt the dress without wearing another layer on top. Another way to wear the Carly dress is to gather the excess material to one side and tie it with a hair tie as seen in this video tutorial here.
Above you see my Sleeping Beauty printed Carly dress styled with a Classic-T and a solid green Carly dress styled two with a Perfect-T. I wore the Sleeping Beauty outfit to my first night out of the house since the baby and I wore my green outfit to Thanksgiving dinner.
I will admit the Carly dress is super comfy and though it is too lose fitting to wear alone for my taste it is a very versatile piece since you can wear tops on top it and really transform the look, also it does not wrinkle!
Recently LulaRoe launched a Noir collection (all black) and according to the shops I follow it was a blood bath trying to order pieces, however some shops were able to secure items. I am hoping to get another pair of black leggings as after I posted my review, I tore a small hole right on the seat of my pants, though small, I would like to get my hands another pair since they really are so comfortable and I can wear black leggings with pretty much anything!
As I order more pieces I will keep you posted! I hear there are more Disney prints coming soon, so stay tuned!
