Dear LulaRoe: One Mom Says What We’re All Thinking

dear lularoe

Dear LulaRoe,

I am a busy mom. I don’t have time to shop. And yeah, online shopping can be done occasionally, but even that turns into a disaster most days. I really like what I see in the 2 minutes of Facebook scrolling I do between work, play groups, doctors appointments etc., but by the time I get back to your “VIP Group” that required me to “Friend” someone that I am not even friends with on Facebook, everything is all tangled and I can’t find “Carly” or “Irma” or whoever the heck that girl is?!

Then I read the comments and find that there are women hunting “unicorns!?” Needless to say, I am confused, tired and LulaRoe-less because YOU DON’T HAVE A WEBSITE that I can visit on my own time, and just simply click an “Add to Cart” button and BUY THE DANG DRESS named after some girl I don’t know.

Also, your leggings are so pretty and I just happened to land a pair of black ones as a gift. They really are smooth like butter, but I didn’t realize the madness that would ensue as your name and the names of your girl gang became household. If I had known that, then I would have bought Carly, Irma, Julia – THE WHOLE SQUAD! But instead I am left scrolling past a cute pair of leggings just to realize the reason I am seeing them is because someone commented, “SOLD” on them!

I understand that exclusivity is awesome. I remember showing up to the first day of school in the same outfit as Ashley Connors. But I am a grown-### woman now and if someone else has the same pair of buttery soft and beautiful leggings as I do, I would most-likely give her a big high five and mad props, because landing those babies requires blood sweat and tears.

So yeah, love your stuff – It’s so pretty on my Facebook- just wish it could be pretty on this tired, out of style, not so Facebook group savvy mama.

XO,

Mama just wants a Carly. 

P.S. Don’t get me started on your sizing. What if I am tall and NOT curvy?! #TheStruggleIsReal

    I love my LLR pieces. Having had the pop-up at my house, I was able to try on the whole ‘gang’ to see how they fit. Now I know just what to skip to in albums to see what I want. But mostly, I love supporting small business women. I love shopping from the convenience of my bed where I don’t have to lug my 4 kids into the dressing room. AND I love how forgiving the pieces are when I pack on the few pounds or shed them the following week.

      Love it all! Thanks for the encouragement! I am going to try and host a pop-up so I can get my hands it ALL! hahaha

    Try eBay! I went LLR crazy last spring-ended up with duplicates, items that just didn’t fit right, etc. I have been able to sell quite a bit of it on eBay & there are tons of listings!

    Finally, for the price the quality isn’t there. After not even a year most of the shirts are getting fuzzy, & that’s after hang drying only! So seriously, no big loss!

    Elizabeth, I totally understand lol I sell LLR and use a different platform than Facebook to sell. If you want to try an online boutique version with no Facebook, send me an email and I’ll hook you up with an easy link. You can look whenever and take as much time as you need.

    Yeah…I bought a few pairs and then discovered VIV Collection leggings on Amazon. Half the price, none of the hassle, and they are just as buttery soft. They are a little bit thinner, but I find that to be more comfortable and you still can’t see through them. If I had a close friend selling LLR then I would still make an occasional purchase through her, but I’m sold on these other ones. You can actually get solid colors!!! For those of us who aren’t crazy about doughnuts on our leggings, this is the way to go!

      Does the VIV collection have the same waistband as LulaRoe???
