LuLaRoe started in my hometown of Corona. Soon my Facebook newsfeed was filled with pictures of friends from back home wearing their cute maxi skirts and modest, fashionable dresses. I was so jealous that I was not home to enjoy it with them. Then I found out that LuLaRoe had fashion consultants, and like other direct sales companies, did in-home parties. I was so excited to find out one of my acquaintances, Hilary, from home lived 3 minutes away from me and sold LuLaRoe. Even though I had just had a baby six weeks prior, I called my friend and booked a party for that week. When Hilary came and set up her inventory I was so excited. I had friends coming in and out, trying on clothes, and everyone was impressed with how cute and modest the clothing was.
I passed my baby off to my mom so I could go in my room to try on my small pile of clothes. I was in heaven. Six weeks after having a baby, my body was not how I wanted it to be. None of my clothes fit me properly. All were either too big (maternity clothes) or too small. I felt gross because I was not comfortable in anything I wore and never felt cute. But that all changed when I slipped on my first Nicole dress by LuLaRoe. I looked cute! Better than looking cute, I felt cute. Something I hadn’t experiences for months. I was so excited that I bought two dresses for myself. It probably wasn’t in our budget, but I felt so fantastic and was so happy to finally have clothes that fit me and looked good that I didn’t care.
The party was fun, easy, and I got a free maxi skirt! I couldn’t stop thinking about LuLaRoe. I asked Hilary about startup costs; $5000. **Drop jaw here** That was way more than I thought it would be, but I still couldn’t get it out of my mind. After a lot of talking and brainstorming with my husband, I sent my paperwork into LuLaRoe so I could become a fashion consultant!
