Hello! First, I need to say THANK YOU to all the amazing people who have read my Lularoe and the Plus Sized Gal posts! I never imagined people would love the post so much and I would get the opportunity to talk to women around the country! I am floored and honored that you all would take the time to read a post from me. If you have not read my previous posts, I will link them here:
~ Review: Lularoe for the Plus Sized Gal (part 1)
Since my first post back in February, I have gained so much confidence. Lularoe has literally changed my life. I have begun wearing more colorful and at times even LOUD clothing where I used to only wear black to fade into the background. I feel more polished and put together while still being very comfortable, which is important to me. I'm a lot less shy about posting pictures of myself because I've heard from so many women that it has helped them. I know what it's like to just want to fade away and hide, to save all the fun clothes for your kids, and to not want to be in any of the family pictures. It hurts my heart that so many women feel this way about themselves. If I can help ONE woman to feel better about herself, my job here is complete.
Here are some styles I haven't tried yet including the newer Carly dress and Joy vest.
Carly Dress: I love the Carly! It's a t-shirt dress with a hi-lo hem and it is meant to be worn loose and boho style. Since the Carly is a looser style like the Irma Tunic, you can fit in multiple sizes. I can wear from a Large to a 3XL. Personally, I like the look of the XL on my body. I love this dress! It feels like wearing pajamas and I get tons of compliments on it. I was hoping to get pictures in all the sizes for you but that didn't happen BUT I did the range! The first picture is a size large and I belted it. It fits me great and I add the belt when I want a more dressed up look. The bottom picture is a 3XL in the heavier weight material that has no pocket. The sizing of this dress is going to depend on what look you're going for if you like things tighter get a smaller size, if you like oversized and drapey go for the larger.
Joy Vest: I really wanted to get a Joy because my daughter's middle name is Joy. Vests are all the rage right now. I have the lace vest because I got mine when they first came out. They now come in a variety of fabrics which is AWESOME for fall! I can fit in a Large or XL Joy. If you are bustier (like my friend Heather in this picture), you need need to size up. My Joy is in a L and in this picture I'm wearing a 3XL Nicole Dress.
Monroe Kimono: In my first blog post, I showed the Lindsay Kimono but I didn't show the Monroe. Monroe has fringe on the bottom and the sleeves are shorter. I can fit the both the Monroe sizes, small and large, but I prefer the large. It's a fun addition to an outfit to give it a pop of color and some pizzaz! The large Monroe is shown here with an XL Carly.
Sarah Duster: The Sarah is a long cardigan with full length sleeves. (I just realized that I never even tried the size large on, I went for the largest size out of habit and never tried anything else.) The XL fit me great and it was very comfortable! This is such a great layering piece! Where I live, it doesn't get very cold and this duster would be enough to get me through most days. I think I wore my coat 2-3 times last year. This XL Sarah is worn with an XL Perfect T and TC leggings.
Those are all the styles I have for you today. Please feel free to leave any questions in the comments below.
