Style of the Week – The Perfect T!

We’re starting off the new year by doing a style of the week series! Each week I’m going to highlight a style I carry! During this series on a weekly basis you can expect a blog post talking about sizing, a live styling video in my group, and a live sale focused exclusively on the style of the week! So to start off this series- which I am SO excited about- were talking about the Perfect T. I must admit, I play favorites–and the Perfect T is my favorite LuLaRoe top! As most everything LuLaRoe you can wear multiple sizes so here below, the meat of the post today, is my awesome friend and myself each wearing multiple sizes, and you can also see the medium is the same shirt. For reference my friend Emily is 5’7″ and usually wears anything from a 4-8 and I am 5’6″ and am pretty solidly wear a 16-18.

 

For some feedback, Emily loved each one of these sizes and she said she would wear any of them. For me depending on the fabric I prefer the Medium or the Large, I feel like since I am bustier, the XL is a little loose in the shoulders. When we were doing this shoot I asked Emily how she felt about the medium because it was loose, and she said it was super comfortable. So as with anything there is definitely a personal preference on how our clothes fit, but I also wonder if being bustier was a factor in my preference for the sizes that I prefer.

Now for some styling fun!

This is an XXS perfect over an XS Julia! The perfect is tied on the side to create a different shape! I love this look combining a loose top over a tighter bottom, but also in these cooler months the Julia is great way to add a layer.

XS Cassie with a XS Perfect. Em brought in some of her personality with her favorite leather jacket to complete this look. The Perfect T is tied up just on one side.

Love this top to wear with jeans! This is a size Medium Perfect T. I also want to add that I candidly snapped the second photo of Emily when she was putting up here hair and we both immediately started busting up laughing because it was such a “model” like pose!

This teal Perfect is one I own personally. It is a size Medium, you can compare it with the red medium above, the drape is different in this one. One of the things I love about LuLaRoe is that all the garments are made in a variety of fabrics so there is literally something for everyone to fall in love with! I paired it with a size Large Cassie skirt and tied up both the sides. I love the shape this top makes with the sides tied; it dips down in the front, and dips down in the back still covering my tush all the while still creating a ruche on the sides– which I love!

This one here is a size large, it has a wonderful cottony texture. I’m a jeans and t-shirt girl! Paired with a hoodie, ankle boots, and my favorite scarf (and beanie!) makes for a super comfortable casual outfit.

After putting this outfit together I must admit that I did like the more oversized look on myself to wear over this 2XL Julia. I cuffed the sleeve of the Julia with the sleeve of the Perfect T to create a cuff and I felt like it did take some of the extra fabric out of my shoulders. I loved how long it was too!

I hope this was helpful and I look forward to writing more style posts!

 

The Carly is HERE!

So I’m going to go ahead and say it again, that the sizing of LuLaRoe is magical. I learned this week that  they fit test every single size. Most clothing companies fit test the small or medium, and then scale the pattern from there. LuLaRoe fit tests every single size!

Yesterday I got the Carly dress in the  mail–people in my group were asking about sizing. I know that buying clothes online is always a little nerve racking! So before my live sale I tried on five sizes! I got XS-XL in my box and here are my results!

The X-Large which is my normal size fit most like the t-shirts I wear on the arms, but not a single one of the sizes felt tight on my arms or like the dress restricted my movement. So my conclusion, go with the print and length you want! The X-Small was definitely shorter on me. I’m 5’6″ for reference. I ended up keeping the medium because I liked the length and how it fit over my bust and then flared out a little from there.

So that’s my review on this awesome new dress! I haven’t taken it off since I tried it on! And I’m not someone who normally wears dresses!

The Cassie Skirt – This week’s style!

So, I have been wanting to feature a style on my blog every week. It’s been one of those plans that is floating around in my head. Then yesterday I was taking pictures of these amazing Cassie skirts that I got when I went to a swap between local consultants–I was home alone and decided to try a few on. Guess what? I tried on FIVE sizes and they all fit! I swear the sizing in this company is magical! I’ve always been one of those women that when I go into a retail store, if the size 14 or 16 didn’t fit, there was nothing else for me to try on. I always envied the ladies who were in the middle size ranges who could go up or down 1-2 sizes and still find what they were looking for. I know no matter where you find your clothes–LuLaRoe included– there is going to be that issue, if you’re small and the XXS or the XS is still too big, then there is nothing smaller, and if the 2XL or the 3XL is too small there is no where else to go–but what I’m trying to say is that for most stores that cap is a size 16, and I love that with LuLaRoe that is not the case. I love that there is a large size range in LuLaRoe, and the tailoring works for everyone! So without getting too wordy here are some pictures I took! I’m 5’6″ for reference. I tried on sizes Medium – 3XL in the Cassie skirt and paired the skirts with a range of styles/sizes in tops that were in my inventory.
