My top five criteria for purchasing clothes for myself are:

 1 - Comfort
 2 - Modesty
 3 - Quality
 4 - Price
 5 - Style

Maybe not in that exact order, but those are definitely the check-offs that every piece of clothing should have before it's new home becomes my closet.

A few months ago I was approached by a childhood friend of mine turned rock-star mother and military wife about hosting a pop-up boutique for a clothing line she was carrying. This was my first introduction to LuLaRoe.

Let's pause and answer a couple of questions I KNOW you are thinking.

What is a {pop-up boutique}?

In short, a LuLaRoe Fashion Consultant will bring and set up a boutique in your home while you visit with your friends, meet new people, shop a little (or a lot), and earn free product at the same time!

I hosted an event just like this a few months back and it was a hit! I got to visit with friends and family while shopping, that's a no-brainer good time if you ask me. We had good food and good company, because in the South food is a must at all events. I also scored an entire free outfit for myself!

I may have even made a purchase of my own, which has quickly become one of my favorite pieces in my closet...

{The Amelia Dress}

It is SO SO difficult for me to find dresses that are long enough. I need dresses I can wear to work, to church, and out with the Hubby. I need versatility, and this dress has it! Not to mention it has pockets. HELLO, POCKETS. A necessity in every skirt and dress if you ask me.

Can't host a boutique party in your home? That's okay, she does online parties too!

What is LuLaRoe?

It's a consultant based clothing company founded by a single mother raising seven children trying to balance her work and home life. Their clothing is high quality, modest, and made for all shapes and sizes of women. They even have clothes for little girls too! Mini d already has two dresses she is waiting to grow in to. She picked them out for herself, chosen because of their excellent twirling ability.

A few weeks ago that same friend that introduced me to this brand I had come to love made me an offer I couldn't refuse. She decided to send me some pieces to review and all I had to do was be honest and write a blog about it. Ummm...was this even a question?!

I was ecstatic to open up the package and find this top. It is pure PERFECTION and Daddy d liked it too...wink wink. The material is sweatpants and a cup of coffee on a cold day comfortable and it seriously fits like they had me in mind when they made it. The variety of patterns and colors this top comes in makes me want more.

Let me introduce you to {The Randy}...

She also sent me the softest leggings I have ever put on my body. And yes I did just say leggings. There are no words to even describe the level of comfort these leggings reach. This particular print was sent to me as a surprise and I normally wouldn't have picked them out for myself. I know I won't be wearing them in the office anytime soon, but I'm thinking this will be my new weekend uniform. What do you think?

The top I'm wearing is a freebie I got from hosting my pop-up boutique. It's called {The Irma}. Let me just say, I also need more of these. They make leggings as pants possible, which I'm usually 100% against. This top is long enough in the back to more than cover all of the necessities and then some. Keeping modesty in check.

What makes this brand different?

I think this is a mixed combination, and that's what makes it so great. The prices are about middle of the road, but once you consider what you are getting for the cost it really becomes irrelevant. The styles are vintage and unique, unlike anything I have ever seen at a local boutique or department store. The quality is exceptional and so I don't mind spending a little more when I know I am purchasing something that will last for years to come. Finally, there is the modesty factor. With all of the micro-mini skirts and crop tops running around it is SO difficult to find clothes that are modest and still stylish AND current. I love that these options allow me to feel cute, comfortable, and maintain my modest values at the same time.

How do you shop and what do you do if you want to set up a {pop-up boutique} and earn free clothes for yourself?
