Hi friends,UPDATE - June 21-July 4 2016 you can enter to win a new leggings giveaway here!
To let you all know this post is semi-sponsored. My friendly LuLaRoe rep Nicole Fitts has agreed to do a giveaway when I told her I wanted to write about LuLaRoe here, which I will tell you more about along the way. However today's post is all about reviewing some of my favorite LuLaRoe items and inviting you all to join me at this weekends LuLaRoe party! (The party's over, but you can still buy from Nicole's shop, and yes she ship worldwide!)
LuLaRoe Company Overview
First off a bit about LuLaRoe. They're a great brand that still fairly new. They started out making all their items besides leggings here in the USA. But in the past year they've grown a lot through their model of locally based consultants who do pop-up sales in home or online. They now have 7500 consultants and have started sending some of their designs to overseas factories. But the good news is they're committed to paying all their workers fairly and all their factories are certified through SGS (More about SGS here!)
The biggest draws for me besides their ethical work is their amazing variety of prints that come is a nice range of sizes including plus size options of course! Most of their women's clothing is available in sizes XXS-3XL! They even have some kids sizes too. Secondly all their prints are limited edition runs of 2500 pieces in each cut. Some days that's maddening if you see a design you don't snag in time, but it also means you have a fairly unique piece. And lastly, their quality is fantastic!
My Plus Size LuLaRoe Review
So far I've tried the Nicole and Amelia dresses, the Madison skirt (purchasing a Cassie shirt this weekend), the Sarah cardigan, a Perfect T, and their famous, buttery soft leggings. I hope to attend an in person party in the future to get a better feel for how some items fit as well!
The Nicole I own (pictured below) is a XXL and I love how it fits, though it's most snug in the arms, and then fitted at the bust. The Amelia in the same size was too small for me, but Amelia also has a zipper closure and pockets, so it's a slight bit more fitted or else I got lucky with the Nicole I chose. I included this dress as a late addition to my fall capsule wardrobe and in my December (Dressember!) mini capsule wardrobe.
Here's a shot with an Amelia, two Nicole's and a second Amelia:

Next up is the Madison a great little a-line skirt that unfortunately I've only seen go up to a size XL. I tried the XL and the one I tried would fit a 14/16 as a low waist skirt or an 18 as a high waisted skirt. I'll be trying the Cassie in a 3XL, though I might also be able to fit an XXL, I just liked a print in 3XL better. I really like how versatile the Cassie is, I've seen it used as a top and as a scarf as well as the intended skirt! Below are examples of each:

Next up is the Sarah cardigan, which brings back the duster sweater with lovely colors! Mine is a XXL, but I could have also gone with a XL since it has lots of stretch and is fitted most in the arms.
I also had good luck with the Perfect T, believe it or not I went with a size L, and would wear that to a XXL in most of their tops such as the Irma, Classic T, and Randy. I'm trying a XXL in a Classic T soon as well.
