LuLaRoe is taking over my Facebook newsfeed! I can't scroll without seeing how people are "roe-ing" today or posting ISO posts. When a friend invited me to an online popup, I just had to have a pair of leggings to see what the fuss was about. I'm now the proud owner of two pairs of leggings, camo and bigfoot, but I have some issues with LLR that makes me want to turn to clothes similar to LuLaRoe. I'll explain a little more why I am a little skeptical about LuLaRoe below. That said, I am still looking for a pair of puzzle piece leggings in TC at retail. I need those in my life for an autism support group that I hold.
My Problems With LuLaRoe
When my friend asked on Facebook if anyone wanted invited to her popup, I was actively looking for a pair of leggings. I had heard about their buttery softness, so I wanted to try them. She didn't have a lot of leggings available, but I did find a camo pair that were cute. I bought them and waited patiently for them to arrive.
When they came, I was excited to try them on. My excitement quickly turned to disappointment as they had a 4 inch hole in the seam where the top band didn't get sewn to the bottoms. I contacted the seller who offered to replace them with a pair from her stash. She had about 10 pairs left, and none were anything that I would wear, let alone spend $30 on. Since LLR offers prints in limited quantities, there's no guarantee that you can get yours replaced if they are defective. The consultant suggested that I sew them myself.
Now, I just paid $30 for a pair of leggings that I can get for $10 elsewhere. I don't believe that I should have to finish making them before I can wear them, but I digress.
I contacted LuLaRoe directly on social media, but they ignored me. Classy, right?
I wish I were the only one who got defective leggings, but there are a lot of complaints in one of the groups that I'm in. A lot. And there are just as many consultants who just don't care.
I decided to give them one more chance with the Bigfoot leggings. They arrived in perfect condition, but I'm still leery about ordering, and I won't buy from anyone except a consultant.
