Back at LuLaRoe Leadership in October of 2017, LuLaRoe announced that they were releasing 4 new styles in 2018. Well, LuLaRoe jumped the gun by releasing the Maria dress before New Years actually happened. The Maria was followed by the Maurine, which was quickly followed by the Christy T. Not sure what the heck I’m talking about with the Christy T? Click HERE to read my post announcing the release of the Christy. Well friends, my box of Christy’s arrived today, so let’s get down to business and review these bad boys!
So, this shirt is based off of the Classic T, but with a v-neck. Trust me, one of the most popular suggestions that I’ve received from my customers had been for a v-neck shirt. Well, ask and ye shall be heard. It might take some time, but LuLaRoe truly does listen to their customers and retailers. We finally have a v-neck! And trust me, she’s everything you could hope for.
The Christy is fitted through the chest, but then flares away from the body. I carry my weight in my hips and tummy, so I was able to size down and still have it look cute. The Christy is also longer in back than in front, so it covers everything you might want to remain hidden. I’m loving this black Christy with a pair of jeans in the picture above!
We were told that the first round of Christy’s would feature lots of solids and stripes. However, we weren’t told what to expect of the fabric. I was surprised at the variety of fabrics that I received in my first box of them! I have everything from a lightweight cotton to a heavier cotton that reminds me of a lightweight sweatshirt fabric. There was so much variety in that box! And these lightweight fabrics are going to be perfect for staying cool during summer.
I’ve got to sum things up, right? Well, I added on 1 extra shirt in my size for myself, but oops? I ended up keeping 2. I couldn’t help myself! I’m normally really good at not keeping stuff from my own inventory, but not today!
I thought I knew what to expect with the Christy T. I mean it’s just the Classic, but with a modest v-neck, right? I mean of course it’s modest. Everything LuLaRoe makes is modest. But honestly, the Christy T blew me away. It’s super flattering, the perfect length, and the v-neck is perfect. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a little cleavage in the right situation. I was a teenager in the early 2000’s. We were the queen of deep v-neck shirts and colored tanks underneath. That look was the shit, right?! Well, I spent a lot of time pulling my damn tank top up as it slid down. Well, I’m not going to have to worry about that anymore!
Want to be kept up to date on if the Christy T will be released into the mainline? Join my VIP Shopping Group HERE! My guess is that it will become a staple item based on how quickly it sold out, but LuLaRoe likes to keep us on our toes.
