Long time no see! I’ve been immersed in scrapbooking so I’m over at the Getting Scrap Done blog a lot. But there is something different of late: LoLaRue leggings. Or, to be more precise, my
obsession for casual interest in them.
It all started with scrapbooking, of course. One of the YouTubers I follow posted that she was getting into LuLaRoe. I had been “invited” (AKA added without my permission) to several LuLaRoe groups in the past, which had annoyed me, but I like this YouTuber and thought I’d check the whole thing out. She had a sale and within a month I had bought a pair of leggings that I heard described as feeling “buttery.”
I tried on the leggings. I don’t know if they are “buttery,” but I have to say it really feels like I’m not wearing pants when I wear them. Which is a feeling I like. A lot. And then I saw the dog prints. Such as this one.
I’m a dog lover. So I was pretty much doomed. They have lots of other animal prints and other patterns. Honestly, there are so many patterns I want. I’ve created a gallery where I post my wish list. Guess you can tell that crazy designs are my fave.
Here’s the thing about LuLaRoe. Their products are sold by individual consultants. As far as I can tell, they order the products they want but have no control over the patterns. So they are likely to get only one of each pattern in a certain product. You can’t just go online to one place and buy whatever patterns you want in the sizes you want. Which is vexing, but the ADD in me absolutely loves it. There’s a scarcity about the items. You have to go looking in different groups. Someone else may get to what you want first. In other words, it has all the ingredients for an ADD rush. And I’ve definitely been rushing, thanks to a Christmas bonus.
The truth is I could use some new clothes. I doubt I can wear the leggings to work, but the tops would be fine. But I can tell I’m going to have to be careful or this could get crazy. Or should I say crazier . . . Clothing budget, here I come.
