Why LulaRoe Makes for Great Airport Style

One thing I hate is when people try to sell me products online that do not resonate with my life. I am both flattered and annoyed when brands that do not offer my size ask me to be a brand ambassador. One brand I have been very skeptical of is Lula Roe. I like the brand story and the idea of it being a great side hustle for many people. I have friends who have turned it into a booming business. But I was not always impressed with the price point and had never been able to try on any of the pieces due to being plus sized. Until someone in a Facebook group I belong to chatted me, I didn't even know they had plus sizes. Through Alyssa I was able to try out some select pieces and I have to say I kind of changed my mind. Read below for why I think Lula Roe makes for amazing travel style.

Obsessions of a Fashion Nerd LulaRoe Review
When I travel, I am 70% about being comfortable and 30% about looking put together. I have found when you dress up a little during travel, you would be amazed about how much more responsive and respectful people are towards you. The Lula Roe Carly Dress, while simple, is still put together enough that I look like I put some effort into what I am wearing. I paired it with my patch jacket and a cute necklace to create an easy going, adventure appropriate outfit. One of the great things about this dress is that it is a high quality poly blend which resisted wrinkling. So even though I had been sitting all throughout the flight to Hilo, I did not look sloppy as I deplaned. I also liked that the dress has, thus far, been resistant to pilling even though it is a jersey fabric. Overall, I was pretty impressed with the quality of Lula Roe.

So let's talk about price. I know it is a major factor when I purchase a new look and I bet it is for you as well.  Lula Roe is a little more expensive than I am used to wearing. As I mentioned, it is one of the main reasons, beyond sizing, I waited as long as I did to try the brand. Having said that, I do really like the quality of the clothing. I feel much more comfortable paying these prices for this quality than I would for a Forever21 dress. I have already washed tested my dress multiple times and it still looks brand new. Are there silhouettes, I wish were lower priced? Sure. But do I think the product offers value? Absolutely. The brand also earns major points in my books for being size inclusive as well. Just make sure if you are trying the brand for the first time to try on multiple sizes as each style fits a little differently.

"A couple rebel top gun pilots
Flying with nowhere to be.
Don't know you super well
But I think that you might be the same as me
Behave abnormally.

Let's let things come out of the woodwork
I'll give you my best side, tell you all my best lies
Yeah, awesome right?
So let's let things come out of the woodwork
I'll give you my best side, tell you all my best lines
Seeing me rolling, showing someone else love
Dancing with our shoes off
Know I think you're awesome, right?

Our rules, our dreams, we're blind
Blowing shit up with homemade d-d-d-dynamite
Our friends, our drinks, we get inspired."
Homemade Dynamite, Lorde
