A Julia Dress For All Occasions

This isn't the first time I've sung praises for the ever versatile, slightly sexy LuLaRoe Julia dress. This black and grey number, courtesy of LuLaRoe Kate & Jamie, is no exception. LuLaRoe Julia boasts a classic shape, a super flexible fit and blank canvas sensibility that seamlessly shifts from from day job to date night to dry cleaning pickup with a simple switch of accessories.

Long Story, Short

Like my LuLaRoe Key Piece #1: Perfect Tee, Striped, I was mega perplexed by LaLaRoe Key Piece #3: Sarah Cardigan, Heather Grey courtesy of LuLaRoe Teri and Molly

Was Sarah a cape? A wizardry robe? Musketeer outerwear?

No, friends. Sarah is a maxi-cardi. Also known as a "duster." Second to prancing unicorn and food staple leggings, LuLaRoe ladies LOVE this floor kissing cardigan. 

LuLaRoe Lovers Like, Love, The Floor Kissing Sarah Cardigan

Guys! I am a 90's hip-hop variety shortie. At 5'1, I'll never enjoy the luxury of purchasing pants or a long dress off the rack: I have to hem "Ankle Length" denim. So you understand my hesitation. 

"To the tailor with you!" I proclaimed, to no one in particular.

You know how life goes. Stuff happened, kids got sick, time moves too fast and my tailor keeps piss poor hours. Long story short, I never ended up hemming the thing.

Such is the case with all things LuLaRoe, apparently, my challenge was solved by a well placed knot. 

Grey on Grey Looks Great on You

For look numero uno (above and below) I went grey all the way, pairing my Sarah Cardigan with solid grey LuLaRoe OS Leggings, courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultant Cheryl Holloway, and a grey LuLaRoe Classic Tee, courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultant Jeanna Hilton.

To elongate my short lines and add some color, I accessorized with a red sugar skull print scarf, which also picked up the red accent on my New Balance 696 sneakers.

Inside Job

The element that made this look plausible was an epic knotting technique courtesy of my photographer Amanda. She gathered a handful of fabric at the base of my spine and secured it with a hair tie - on the inside of the cardigan. Brilliant!

Sarah + Julia = LuLaRoe 101

For outfit #2, I layered my Sarah Cardigan over a black Julia Dress, courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultants Kate and Jamie. This look is quintessential LuLaRoe style. And why not? The proportions work and nobody appreciates a chilly back half. Personalize your version with fun shoes - like these Loeffler Randall cut out platform booties I've owned since 2008. 

LuLaRoe Sarah: Sarong, It's Right

This last look ended up being my favorite of the entire shoot. Funny thing, it's the same outfit base as look #1 but accessorized with a blingy J.Crew statement necklace, a metallic Loeffler Randall cosmetic case for clutch and funky Loeffler Randall booties. In a flash of inspiration I tied the bottoms of the Sarah cardigan sarong style, with the knot to the side at my hip. Sass-o-rama!
