LuLaRoe Diaries: THE Turdma

I know you guys have lost sleep waiting on this blog post. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a giant smile on my face while writing this… It’s just that this Irma, excuse me, Turdma, is EVERYTHING.

Here’s a little background. The first time I saw this gem, I was scrolling my Facebook news feed….It was flooded with LuLaRoe posts, per usual, and I was “browsing” while I waited for the Real Housewives to start. Then suddenly, it appeared. In all of its blue and brown glory. The Turdma. I didn’t know it was a Turdma when I saw it. My first thought was “OMG. This Irma has my favorite Emoji all over it!”.   I realized it was in fact PINE CONES (for real. It’s pine cones!) but it still held my interest. I read through the comments which is when I realized IT had a name. The Turdma.

I’ve been on the hunt for this polyester/spandex “unicorn” precisely 4 weeks. Would you believe NOT ONE Consultant had my size? Not one. Was it so popular that it was sold out everywhere??

The search continued… that was until last week when I posted the biggest ISO of all time. I ended my blog post with “P.S. if you are a consultant and you have an XXS Turdma, hit me up!”. Guess what… I got my Unicorn.

Now, I know what you are probably thinking. Jackie has lost her ever-loving mind. She drank one too many glasses of wine and has officially gone of the deep end. But I’m here to tell you that you are wrong.

For starters, I am 31 years old, gave birth to two children (one birth ended looking very similar to this Irma), and don’t have time to worry about what other people think. I really don’t. Harper just stripped down and peed on the floor as I’m writing… I’ll be right back.

I’m back…told you. No time.

If you wonder why this  became my “Unicorn”,  here’s your answer.  Clothes are just clothes. They keep you warm and cover up your lady bits when you need to do Adult things like grocery shop or go to work. They also have the ability to make you feel like a totally different person. Clothes can give  you confidence, comfort, and even happiness. You should wear clothes that make YOU feel good about yourself. I’m a big believer in stepping  outside of your comfort zone…get out of that black legging rut (we’ve all been there).  What do you have to lose? Some stranger at the mall says you look ridiculous in your Daisy leggings? What do they know. Maybe you’re the trend setter… I mean, Rihanna stopped wearing pants and 90% of the people at her concert last weekend didn’t have pants on. #truestory

Be like Rihanna…except wear pants. Please, wear pants.

Anyways, back to the Turdma. I desperately wanted the Turdma for 3 reasons. Number one: The Pinecones looked like poo and that made me smile so hard that I knew this was a must have. Number Two: I wanted to show everyone to NEVER judge a Irma by her print. Dare to be different.  Number Three: If you are confident, that will shine through. I promise no one will have the cojones to say you look ridiculous. If someone does say you look ridiculous, throat punch them. #justkidding #forrealthough

Here are a few ways I turned this top from a fashion no-no to a do-do! 😉

Knot your Irma if you are intimidated by all the extra fabric 😉

Yup. You can also wear it as a dress!!! WHAT!?! I know. Insanity!

This top made me laugh & step outside of my comfort zone. My Husband had the best reaction probably. I pulled it out and was like “Baaaaabe, it’s here!!”.  He takes one look at it and says, “What’s so bad about that? It’s blue and brown”. Such a dude! I loved his response because it goes it to show you other people don’t always see what you see. You may not feel confident, but someone who walks past you might wish they could wear what you’re wearing. Maybe you will give them the confidence they need when they see you sporting those Big Foot leggings. I’m happy my Hubby liked it, but if he didn’t, it wouldn’t matter. I would still be rocking the sh** out of my new top! Pun intended.

If you made it this far, thank you for reading. I also want to give a shout out to the Consultant that fulfilled my ISO. You rock, girlfriend!!! Here is the conversation that transpired between the two of us…  

“The Tudma has SOLD. I repeat, the Turdma has SOLD”.  I found out through a member of my group that we both posted the below at the same time in our own group… #stilllaughing

Lesson Learned: Do YOU my friend. Do you. Oh, and if you’re having trouble finding your DISO, just get desperate and write a blog post about it.

Happy Strolling!

Unicorn = Hard to find print that may or  not exist or a print that you are desperately searching for. I’m not sure how that makes it a Unicorn but we’ll just go with it.

Big Foot Leggings: Leggings that have Big Foot on them. I thought this one was pretty self-explanatory but you never know.

    Wow, now that I see the turdma on you I really like it! I, too, am a big fan of the poo emoji. What are the odds of some other consultant having an XXS turdma? HA!

  2. Kelly Graves says:

    Love reading your posts! You are going to rock your business (well, you already are) I live in Maine where the pine cone is our state flower, so I really SHOULD have a Turdma! My little cousin is a consultant with the Turdaxi, but I think it’s a M or a Large. Thanks for all the smiles and chuckles and very loud GUFFAWS!

    Can you do a tutorial on how to wear your Irma as a skirt?! I’ve been looking for one on you tube and Google and can’t find anything. Thanks!

    • Jacqueline Oliva says:

      Hey!! I will totally do one! I posted a video in my FB group of how to but will add one to my youtube account for everyone to see 🙂

    Fellow consultant here and I too am a proud Turdma owner. I was blessed with an XL of these in my onboarding order nearly 6 months ago and then last month I decided eh what the heck, despite being a size 2 myself I’ll keep the darn thing because it was INFAMOUS in my VIP. Like you said, it made people laugh and when it showed up in parties people came to ooh and ahh over it. They’d joke about buying it for their friends as a gag/white elephant gift.

    Instead, it’s now living with me and I as a “thank you” gift to my VIPs I wore it as a dress and posted a picture. Again, laughter and joy was shared. One girl even said she NEEDED it! I will be wearing this at convention. In fact, it’s the sisterhood of the traveling turdma because all my teammates at convention will also wear it in their own style. It’s going to be EPIC! Thanks for the laughs and keep up the great work on the blog! You’re going to do just fine in this business ;).
