While at the park in Houston, Isabelle and I had an impromptu photo shoot of her in her Adeline dress and leggings (and princess hair lol). She loves being photographed, and is quite photogenic! I may be a little biased, but I think Isabelle will love having these photos when she is older.
Adeline is such a cute girls dress, suitable in the small to the larger sizes! I carry this style in my LuLaRoe shop 😍

Ever wondered what would happen if your LuLaRoe Monroe ended it up in the washing machine?
Hand washing clothes sucks and I typically don’t purchase clothing unless it’s machine washable. I wanted to know, out of curiosity/easiness, if I truly had to hand wash my Monroe, or if I could stick it in the wash and it would be fine… I didn’t want to find out enough to put my own Monroe at risk through!
I’m always happy when my husband does the laundry. I always say thank you, and try to at least help with the folding. (After my back surgery, leaning in to pick up wet clothes, stand up, and shove them while leaning forward again into the dryer has become impossible most days). However, this also means that my Monroe ended up being tossed in washing machine. How did my husband know he did a bad thing? When the fringe on the bottom was unraveling while pulling it back out of the washing machine.
Here’s how I fixed my Monroe! Hopefully you’ll never need this tutorial, but in case you do, here are the instructions:
Start with gathering the needed supplies:
Monroe with a sad unraveling fringe
Fabric scissors (or super sharp scissors)
Fabric Check (or any other brand of solution that prevents fabric from fraying)
Next is to trim the fringe up, just above where it is unraveling. Trim this as evenly as possible!
Now that the fringe is all even with its bad ends trimmed off, it’s time to apply the Fray Check. This solution can sometimes discolor the fabric, or leave it a bit stiff. Please test a small area first (I didn’t see a difference with the black, personally).
When it dries, it is kinda tacky. To prevent the individual fringe pieces from drying together, I used my scissors (a wide tooth comb would probably have worked faster) to separate the fringe.
Double-check that all your fringe is even, and you’re all done!
Here are some fashion tips and trends to look forward to in the fall, headed into winter! This was written by Jill Brady at the LuLaRoe Home Office.
“It’s no surprise during the fall season that we see a shift towards warm and cozy woven materials; the sorts of muted colors that demand we stay in curled up with a good book. The colors of this season reflect nature, and we can expect to see reds and burnt oranges along with shades of tan. However, the standout color of this fall season is a dusty, rosy pink – particularly paired with a bright yellow. Perhaps it’s a nod to last year’s uncharacteristically warm fall/winter season and the slow transition from the summertime.
If you’re going for extra style points this fall, be sure to throw some velvet into the mix – a trend that’s sure to carry over into the winter season. Velvet is everywhere – even on handbags – and it has us looking forward with eager anticipation to the holiday pieces Patrick [LuLaRoe head designer] might be cooking up for us! Speaking of holidays, we can of course expect lots of metallic, but the emphasis this season is less on sparkle and more on shine; think of golds and silvers that have seemingly melted onto the fabric. Simple but shiny accessories with less detail and ornamentation are an easy way to rock this trend!
As far as other trends go, fall-hued floral prints continue to remain popular. Other trends encourage us to transition our favorite summer staples into fall. It’s easy to layer your summer pieces with a warm, neutral Sarah or Lindsay. We will see dresses worn over turtlenecks, oxford shirts, or even just long sleeved T’s – adding both warmth and visual interest. This would be especially cute with LuLaRoe’s Amelia, Nicole, Julia, and Ana dresses. For those who want to add an exciting twist to their outfits, we will see summer sandals and open-toed heels worn with socks. If you’re going to try it, let us suggest sheer, almost stocking-like socks working up toward the knee and thigh highs.
Pleats are still big (hello Jill skirts!) and look great with cropped fitted jackets or even layered with chunky sweaters. The 70’s silhouette (tight top, full bottom) is still worming it’s way into the mainstream, bucking the skinny jeans that have reigned supreme over the last decade (although those aren’t going anywhere anytime soon either). This is a great time to embrace your Ana, Nicole, and Amelia dresses; or pair a sized-down Classic T with a fuller Madison, Lola, and Lucy skirt.”
I love summer, but dressing for Fall with its many options will always be my favorite. Even more so since moving to South Florida, where Fall and Winter trends need a bit more creativity to pull off in 90 degree weather 🙂
