For the love LulaRoe Leggings

This is how it usually begins...... someone thinks, "ok, I will give these leggings a try."  They purchase a black or gray pair and go about their day.  It isn't until they get home, slip into their leggings, and lounge about for a bit that they can enjoy what the fuss is all about.

1- Super duper soft- this is the first selling point.  In the LulaRoe world this is often called the ' buttery soft ' leggings.  It isn't just any old knit, this has a micro-fibre suede (almost) soft feel to it. It moves with you. It sits like a second soft skin, it is great for cuddling up.  The thin softness makes it easy to tuck into boots or to fold into a capri- either way, when you put these on, you don't want to take them off. (Tip; line dry for longer lasting softness)
Perfect for layering under the Carly with boots

2- Gentle Fold Waistband -  I didn't realize how much I would love this feature until I owned a couple of pairs. I have other leggings, of course, and they are plenty cute- but they lack the waistband feature that LulaRoe has literally perfected.  The waistband is a large lovely fold, that sits on the hip and doesn't dig into your waist. (The same waistband is featured on their Cassie pencil skirts and skirts as well- and I adore it).  Because of this I found myself reaching for my LulaRoe leggings over any other previous pairs I have.
(Note the waistband, in the "star" print above the stripes. The fold is a large, soft fold designed to sit on your waist and not dig into it with an intrusive elastic band).

3-Uber Crazy Prints - Now crazy prints (like the stars and stripes above) aren't for everyone- but you would be surprised how many gals around the world are saying goodbye to boring clothes on throwing one crazy, colorful, and happy prints of all kinds.  It's like being a little girl finding the bumble bee striped tights again (wink wink....or sniff sniff...)
You can find leggings that include prints from the 80s, florals, geometrical prints, and just about anything you can dream up.  (I am partial to having a floral obsession).  Not a "show off my bum" kind of person? No worries- the Irma shirt has a long high-low length that covers anything you're not quite ready to show off- but most any long cardigan (also available) or other pieces in your closet with a little length will pair up nicely with your leggings. So go for the print and wear your joy!

It may be a 'safe' purchase- because who doesn't enjoy being comfortable during the day, but for me it opened up my LulaRoe eyes and made me a fan.  I work as a massage therapist and play at my craft table- and I am in my leggings for both. It sounds silly, but it's like a little gift I give myself, being comfortable and wearing something with personality while I do the things I love. (BTW- those are my floral leggings and fall boots at the top of the page. Talk about true love <3 )

One day I was out and about in a pair of tropical floral leggings- a neighbor said , "Wow! Those are some colorful leggings!" Was she surprised? Was she jealous? Did she think I was crazy? I don't know, and it didn't matter. Either way I was in something I love in a color I love and it made me happy. I smile and said , "I know! That's why I love them!"

Here's our challenge for you today:
Live out loud.
Live in color.
Happy Little Things- when your leggings match your favorite mug

Welcome to Mels LuLaRoe Blog

We are so glad you are here!

It is our hope that this blog will help you understand WHY LULAROE is in our lives and how much we love it.  The clothes of course, are known for being over the top comfortable.  Something every woman wants - comfort and style. Comfort and cuteness.  Something you can wear on date night or to the park with the kids and feel great......

But we also want this blog to help you to get to know us. The reality of our lives, the behind scenes peeks at how we run the business, and most of  all, how life-changing this experience has been.  You wouldn't believe it, but not much more than year ago Mel was in the hospital with complications after a surgery and things were rough. Things went down-hill, then back up..... she fought.  If any of you have ever struggled with serious health issues you understand it is hard to get yourself up and going some days.  You can do it.

That is part of what this business is all about (besides a great career opportunity and life changing option), the chances it gives people..but ENOUGH about that for now, we will get more into that another time.  Most of us just wear LuLaRoe  for the ease and for the statement we can make.

Leggings and Carly

If you are one of the lucky ladies who can shop and find cute clothes fit in your size (petite? smalls?) then you will find plenty here to compliment your wardrobe.  If you're more like us we rock a few curves and have to be a little more picky about how things fit.  LuLaRoe takes care of that- from XXS to XXXL and all in between you will find an amazing variety of cut, colors, prints, and style and before you know it you will be addicted to your favorite pieces and out hunting for unicorns (more on those to come).

So be sure to follow our blog and check back for lots of style, fashion, and life tips (hey, we're all just figuring this out together!).  If you aren't already, please click here to come join Mels Vip LuLaRoe group, where you will find several sales a week, with live shopping and personalized consultations/ rack picking and a great forum to interact with other Lula lovers.
