Review of LuLaRoe’s Julia Dress (unsponsored)

Note: I don’t sell LuLaRoe, and I paid for the dresses that I show in this post. This post does contain an affiliate link to Amazon.

I love, love, love the Julia dress from LuLaRoe. Now I typically like to spend no more than $30 on a dress, so I’ll wait for the department store sales before I go dress shopping. But the Julia –priced at $45– is worth the money, in my opinion.

Since it’s a form fitting dress, I was originally skeptical that I would like it. But the fit is so, so flattering! I did size up larger than the recommended size. In the Loft or Ann Taylor, I wear an 8 or a 10 in dresses (usually an 8). The Julia size chart recommends that I order a medium, but I already have an Ana dress in medium, and I don’t like how tight it is in the rib cage and the arms, so I ordered the Julia in a large, which is supposed to fit sizes 12-14.

What is also great about the Julia dress is that my friend who is built completely opposite than I am also loves it. Nicole is much shorter than I am, and has a very curvy but athletic figure (think hourglass), where my figure is more straight up and down (rectangle). The fact that two very differently built people both love this dress really shows how great this dress is.

The Julia is a midi-length dress, but I have two of them, and the geometric print dress is shorter than the other as you can see in the photos. At 5’10”, I prefer the longer length. My knees are not exactly my favorite part of my legs.

This dress is so comfortable! I’ve been wearing it to work, and I basically feel like I’m wearing a pajama t-shirt all day. Throw a complimentary blazer on, and Julia looks completely professional. I’ve been unexpectedly called into a meeting with high-profile “customers” while wearing a Julia (I work for a DOD school that’s for service members, so basically our “customers” are the career field managers from all military service branches). I felt completely confident that I was dressed appropriately, and I believe I presented myself professionally. And I was so comfy doing it!

By the way, if you like my cardigan sweater in the photo above, it’s the BIADANI Women’s Crewneck Button Down Sweater on Amazon. The teal cost me $14.99, and I’m very impressed with the quality. The fabric is thick, and it’s difficult for me to find tops with long enough sleeves for me.

I love how many colors and patterns are constantly available. I’m planning on buying a couple more Julias in more casual prints or fabrics as go-t0 dresses for this summer. I think this dress will be perfect for the playground or walking around outdoor shops, etc.

Do you own a Julia? What do you think about it?

JenJenHouse for bridal and special occasion dresses

*Sponsored Post*

Although the polar vortex may have pushed this thought from our minds, Spring is actually heading our way next month! March 20 is the first day of Spring. With warmer weather comes weddings! Of course people get married year round, but statistics show the most popular month for weddings is June.

If planning a wedding, you’re probably looking for a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses. Maybe the mother of the bride and mother of the groom still need dresses too. Or maybe you’ve been invited to a wedding, and you’re looking for something new and flattering to wear.

A one-stop shop for special occasion attire, JenJenHouse carries dresses for the entire bridal party as well as accessories, shoes, and even favors for the reception.

Here are some of my top choices for wedding guest dresses. Short and flirty, but still appropriate and flattering for different body types. Some of these styles are available in multiple colors too.

To go with your new dress, you of course need a formal handbag to go with. Check out my picks for evening clutches (some of these are also in multiple colors!):

If you’re not a fan of clutches, there are other handbag styles available like wristlets, cross-body bags, and shoulder bags.

The site is well-organized, and you can easily search for dresses by color, seasons, embellishments, and more. There are similar search options available for the handbags and other accessories. They have headpieces, veils, shoes, and even fancy umbrellas and parasols!

JenJenHouse has weekly sales as well as a section that features dresses under $100. The sales aren’t just for dresses. Find deals on wedding or party favors, accessories, and more.

Whether you’re shopping for a wedding, a prom, or looking for the perfect little black dress, check out JenJenHouse to see the hundreds of styles they have to offer.

Each dress is made to order. Whether you choose a standard size or submit your custom measurements, your dress will be tailored after you order. When you order, take into account tailoring, processing, and shipping time. Fortunately, JenJenHouse has a guide to explain how it all works. They’ll even ship internationally!
