Hey friends! Today I wanted to share my experience with Roolee as one of their top 10 CFO (Chief Fashion Officer)candidates! But first, let me explain why I got to head to Utah with Roolee in the first place!
Back in May, I noticed a new contest that was being promoted by one of my favorite shops Roolee. They were looking for a TikTok influencer to create content for them as well as some other awesome perks. To enter was simple: All I had to do was create a fun video sharing why I loved Roolee and if I made it through the first 2 rounds, I would get to travel to Utah to meet the team, go on a shopping spree, and see the behind the scenes of Roolee! I made my cute TikTok video, made it to the top videos for round 2, and was in the top 10 most voted for videos on their website! By the end of June, I was officially picked as one of the top 12 CFO candidates, and I was on my way to Utah.
I was VERY nervous to attend this trip. I was the only plus size girl, and I was really worried I would be judged by my body type. I was nervous all the way up until I landed in Salt Lake City, but thankfully I was instantly welcomed by some amazing people!
After meeting everyone at the airport, we were off to our hotel, and then to a fun dinner in Salt Lake. It was at this dinner I got to know more of the girls in the top 12 (literally everyone was amazing!) and I also got to meet my long time online girl crush, Tia Bee Stokes, who I instantly connected with! After some fun introductions and conversation, we headed back to the hotel to rest for our busy day ahead.
The next day was filled with so many activities. We headed to be interviewed on TV with Good Morning Utah, which was an exciting experience! I knew not everyone would get to say something on TV, but I was one of 3 contestants that did! It was soooo scary, but I’m proud of myself for speaking my truth about body positivity! After being interviewed on the news, we headed up to Logan, UT to see the Roolee store, meet Kylee and Chad (who own Roolee and are amazing), and shop around! I got to pick out some super cute clothing items, and have a really great chat with Kylee and Chad. I got to thank them for offering a wider range of sizing, so I was able to have cute clothes I could wear! They are truly amazing people, and I love Roolee even more after meeting them! After our experience in the store and seeing the warehouse, we headed to a yummy dinner, and I got to experience 2 Utah classics for the first time…a flavored soda shop and Crumbl cookies!
Our last day of the our trip, we headed up to The Olympic Park in Park City, UT. I grew up going to Park City, but I never got to go to the Olympic Park, so it was exciting to be able to go! We spent the morning going down the Alpine Slide, jumping off 15 foot platforms, and admiring the mountains. I also got to hang out more with Tia and her kids, who are seriously the most fun family ever! After getting to do activities for a couple hours, we headed down to eat lunch and hear the announcement of the CFO! I was having really mixed feelings because I wanted to win obviously and be chosen as their Chief Fashion Officer, but I got to know most of the girls and I loved them so much! I wanted all of them to win!! I was unfortunately not chosen as Roolee’s CFO, but Lindsay who was chosen is awesome and is doing such a great job already!!! I’m so excited for her and to watch the content she makes!
I had such a great experience meeting all of the Roolee team and all of the girls from the top 12. Everyone was so nice and had such unique stories. I now have life long friends I get to cheer on over social media! I love Roolee as a store and I love how inclusive they are! I love the owners…they have such a great heart and truly want women to feel their best! It was an honor to get to talk with them!
I might not have gotten to be chosen as the CFO, but I do have some fun things in the works with Roolee! So stay tuned for more awesome!
