One of Rockford’s Most Popular Fashion Lines is Being Sued
Everyday. That's how often I get invited to an online LuLaRoe party; and you would think with how often I wear leggings, also everyday, that I would've purchased a pair by now.
For whatever reason, unbeknownst to me, I can't bring myself to pull the trigger on buying any. And it's not that I don't want to support my friends in their new and exciting business opportunity; it's just that I'm the one in need of support in the thighs and crotch when it comes to my stretchy leg wear.
That's just one of the reasons LuLaRoe is coming under fire from women around the country.
According to WISN, the popular clothing line is facing a class-action federal lawsuit claiming that not only does the clothing rip too easily, but they're also allegedly overcharging customers.
WISN says the company is wrongfully taxing customers in states that don't have a sales tax on clothing.
CBS reported that LuLaRoe "overcharges buyers up to 10.25% every time a consultant who lives in a jurisdiction that taxes clothing makes a sale where delivery is made to a jurisdiction that does not."
A plaintiff in the lawsuit, from Pennsylvania, says she was charged $35.16 in sales tax; even though Pennsylvania doesn't charge a tax on clothes.
Additionally, because of the quality complaints and tax issue, the Better Business Bureau has given the company an "F" rating.
Aside from the fact that the adorably wild patterns that LuLaRoe offers aren't flattering on a woman with quads my size, I don't know enough about the product to give an honest opinion on this.
So, I ask you, consultants and fans of the clothes, what do you think of this? Personally, I'm just going to stick with buying my leggings from TJ Maxx; they're affordable and last me quite a while. Plus, they don't need special instructions on how to put them on.
What say you?
