LuLaroe – A Dozen Ways I’d Wear a Carly Dress

Posted on: April 17, 2017

With all the craze and addictive quality to the Lularoe brand of clothes, I had been steering clear. 

Today , my son’t bowling group had a fundraiser, so of course I had to see what all the fuss was about. 

I met two wonderful Lularoe Consultants : Jessica (HERE)  and Kristin (HERE

If you are looking for Lularue Products please support these wonderful women

who were so gracious as  

to follow my blog the minute they heard I was a blogger.  

I had seen first hand how the Carly Dress works wonders for a woman’s curves,

so decided that I had to give it a try.  

This is Absolutely not your basic T-shirt dress, so don’t let it fool you.  

As women we all know that the smallest part of any woman is just below the chest, 

which is why an Empire waist is so figure flattering. 

This dress goes in just under the chest , then flares out slightly in the most flattering way. 

I saw this for the first time on a plus size girl and

was floored at what it did for her body, 

and knew I had to give it a try.  

Apparently I was grimacing instead of smiling in all my photos, lol

Let’s count this as my before picture to look back on as I 

am beginning this weight loss journey!  

I specifically picked this pattern because I knew it would go with my blue and pink wedges 

that I bought last year from TJ Maxx,.  

I bought this Indigo Thread vest (Vests currently selling)  in both Ivory and Black last season. 

This is how I would wear it for an evening event more than a daytime Spring 

or Summer look.   An outdoor concert and I’d rock this out!  

My apologies , I was dressing “Scarlett ” (my dressform) so many times 

and didn’t straighten this one up correctly.. 

I really like how it brings out the white details in the dress and brightens up the look. 

This is a Lularoe “Joy” vest I bought with it today. 

I love how it brightens it up .  

This is another Indigo Thread vest I bought recently for this season. 

Crotchet or Lace pieces offer a great detail to outfits

as the element of texture is represented.  

While the dress has pink flowers,

I like the darker burgundy and how it goes,

but doesn’t match.  

How about some pattern mixing to complete the long

Boho vests I could wear with this dress?

I found this Vest via Jane.com sometime last year.

If I was a stylist dressing clients one rule I would institute is

to add a black and white print of every category in your closet.

A dress, pants, shirt , sweater, etc .

It increases your wardrobe as it can be paired with any solid color.

Vests over tank tops are my go to for Summer , so I recently added 

these baby soft “Shawl Dawls  that work as a vest or more of a Kimono . 

It just so happens the rose colored Shawl Dawl  one works for the dress too.

This is worn more like the Kimono style.

I buy in multiples if I like something, but have learned to keep it to

just two of any one thing.

Jean Jackets are always a great layering piece for Spring. 

With a pair of leggings or tights and ankle boots this could become a cold weather 

outfit and I will definitely layer it for those months and get plenty of use out of this dress. 

One World Jean Jackets are my favorite , this one found HERE . 

With my love of jean jackets,  A few years back I invested in 3 

of these cropped versions by One world (similar ones here) . 

For my petite height a cropped version if wonderful and 

I highly recommend if you don’t currently own one in white, 

that you add one to your style for great versatility.  

A lot of Duster Sweaters are lighter weight and perfect for 

Spring weather fluctuations .  

This brand has a lot of Spring Duster options Here. 

Of course I couldn’t just show one option for 

pattern mixing.  This Halston sweater is definitely 

thin and has an open weaved back, making it a Spring option.  

Bonus:  this is how I wore it to run to BJ’s to go grocery shopping . 

I did the rubber band trick to gather it and shorten it a bit when wearing with

the leggings as it created a better look for my height with the leggings.  

Gratitude

I am grateful that after 3 days of asking my sister for a sign that she knows

I have her beloved cats ,Oreo and Cupcake

and can see how happy they are and how much joy they bring us,

 indeed a sign showed up!  

I am grateful for a weekend with my son home from college , miss that guy!  

I am grateful that we were all together and celebrated my youngest’s 17th birthday early , 

giving him hoverboards that he had actually given up on ever getting and thoroughly surprising him. 

Notice I said hoverboards plural as I got two so a sibling could join him in the fun. 

I am grateful for a Weight Watcher buddy in my dear friend and the way

we push each other to get fitbit steps.

I am grateful for a fun family and friends day spent at Botanical Gardens and for becoming a member ,

so we can go back throughout the year.
