Good evening, friends!
I’m popping over very quickly to share an exciting new find in my life.
“New”, I realize, is a relative term. There are LOTS of LulaRoe fans out there, I’m just a little late to the party.
This past week, we had most of my mom and dad’s grandkids out at their house in the country, and a special box arrived in the mail from my friend, Libby, while they were there…
Six – that’s right, six! – DotDotSmile dresses in a new floral print, part of a limited “Mommy and Me” release from LulaRoe.
Two were pink.
Two were blue.
Two were green.
Six were darling.
If you follow my page on Facebook, you might remember this video of Rebekah, showing off the DotDotSmile’s super-awesome “twirl factor”. We’ve had lots of twirly dresses in this house, but this is among the twirliest. It is SO twirly, in fact, that tumble shorts or tights are a necessity. 🙂 Rebekah has shown this twirl off to anyone who will watch, and it always elicits a response. I mean, it is TWIRLY. I think I applaud every single time.
What Rebekah, in particular, also likes about this dress is that it is cool to the touch. A very hot-natured girl, she LOVES how this dress feels, and she often manages to wear it all day AND night. And the entire next day and night. And the entire NEXT day and night, until I force her to hand it over for washing.
Anyhow, I can’t tell you how happy these five little girls were — the sixth granddaughter wasn’t with us this week, but next time we’re all together, there WILL be a group picture! — when they first put on their dresses. My mom’s room seemingly transformed into a ballet stage as they each, in a dreamy world of their own, danced their hearts away. It was quite funny. I could get used to a house full of girls!
On our last night together, I pulled the girls from their wiffle-ball game – their mouths were blue from Gatorade, their feet were filthy, and their hair was a frizzy mess of brushed-out braids! Country living at its finest! – and snapped a few photos.
Keep in mind that these photos have filters on them, changing up the color of the dresses a little. They are a bit brighter, I think, in real life!
Some things I especially love about the DotDotSmile dress:
- They are modest. If you’ll notice, we have older girls and toddler girls in our family, and this dress is appropriate for all. I know that my eldest niece, one year away from teenagerhood, is already having trouble finding clothes that are not too grown-up or too revealing for her. These dresses are stylish, but the girls who wear them still look like little girls. That’s a must in my book.
- They can’t wrinkle. I think you could put this dress in a Ziploc bag and send it to the moon and it would come out of the bag wrinkle-free. It’s slinky and awesome like that.
- They can change with the seasons. Earlier in the year, Rebekah wore her dress with cable-knit footless tights, boots, and a cardigan. On Sunday, it was a bit cool, and the girls wore a lightweight denim jacket over their dresses, one with Toms and one with moccasins. OR they look great on their own, with sandals!
Do you know what is super exciting for me? I liked the print of these dresses so much, I asked my friend, Libby, if she still had any of the “mommy” dresses left. She DID! I snagged a green one, so now our little family has a green, pink, and blue dress, and I’m actually pretty excited to be matchy-matchy with my girls. It’s our first time. We’ve coordinated for years, but we’ve never MATCHED. This is big doin’s. 🙂 I’ll be posting a picture on Facebook soon of the three of us in our LulaRoe dresses. I’ve just got to wash my hair first.
Okie dokie. Sorry to sound like an advertisement, but you guys know by now that, when I find something I like, I’m really, really excited to pass it along! I just know there are so many moms out there looking for appropriate clothing for their daughters – and for themselves! – and I think you’ll be really happy with LulaRoe.
LASTLY, I’m sure there are LulaRoe consultants all over the map, but the one who is nearest and dearest to my heart can be found by going to www.libbybreland.com. When I was a preteen, Libby was my pastor’s toddler, and now she has a minister-husband and two little children of her own. I’m so proud of the hard work she is doing to help her family, and would love it so much if you would support her! She really knows her stuff, and was able to perfectly size all of us!
That’s all for now! I’ll be back soon to finish up the series I’ve been sharing. Thanks for shopping with me today!
