Finding the Perfect Fit: Look Chic with IGIGI Plus-Size Pants

Posted by on February 12, 2014

For a really long time I refused to wear pants. Honestly, I’ve always been more of a skirt or dress girl anyways, but since I live in Chicago – also known as the icy heart of the polar vortex – pants are something of a necessity these days.

Part of my challenging “pants-phobia” came from being unable to find pants that fit the way I wanted them to fit. I would see other women wearing really cool skinny jeans or a perfectly tailored pair of trousers and get really discouraged when I would go shopping for those same styles and find that absolutely nothing similar would fit me. I’m also a little self-conscious about my thighs, but apparently even Beyoncé is a little self-conscious and thinks her thighs are a “problem area,” so I’m in good company.

Transitioning from Winter to Spring in the IGIGI Chelsea Plus-Size Dress in Ombre Floral

Posted by on February 10, 2014

Since it seems like the dreaded “polar vortex” (which would be the best frappuccino name ever, by the way) will seemingly never end here in Chicago, I find myself looking for brighter prints to spruce up my wardrobe and cut through the cold, snowy weather. While browsing the IGIGI site, I came across the beautifully vibrant IGIGI Chelsea Plus-Size Dress in Ombre Floral and I knew that the awesome “sixties flower child” vibe that this dress gives off was just what I was looking for.

The ombre effect of the pattern on the IGIGI Chelsea Plus-Size Dress in Ombre Floral simply means that the color tones on the dress shade into each other and the color is graduated from light to dark. The placement of the ombre shading on the dress starts right under the bust and then goes down several inches, blending to the top of your hips to minimize the smallest part of your body.

Colorblocking: A Plus-Size Dress Trend for All Seasons

Posted by on February 5, 2014

The colorblocking trend is still in full force and I am thrilled about it. Colorblocking is one of those trends that anyone can pull off easily and, if you pick colors that are subtle enough, you can wear colorblocked pieces well past their “prime” trendy season, because they can function as an alternate pattern style. Any trend or pattern that’s strong enough to wear from season to season is one that I can get behind.

I recently checked out the IGIGI Evey Plus-Size Colorblock Dress in Black/Royal (for more info, check out the blog post about plus-size colorblocking tips) and was really impressed with how IGIGI mastered the colorblocking trend with their garments, so when the IGIGI Carissima Plus-Size Dress in Malbec went on sale, I quickly snatched it up to capitalize off the similar look and the great price.

The asymmetrical cut of the dress is incredibly flattering and stretches across the body giving some instant slimming power to the waist and hips. The IGIGI Carissima Plus-Size Dress in Malbec has a pretty standard cut, which makes it perfect for the office since it has a higher neckline and a slightly longer hemline. However, the asymmetry and the colorblocking makes it trendy and flattering, giving it that special oomph factor while emphasizing your curves.

Making Your Work Wardrobe Fun Again with Colorful Separates

Posted by on January 31, 2014

It is really easy to get sick of your work wardrobe. Since I am known as being a generally fashion-conscious person, I usually feel a lot of pressure to dress up and look cute, even on days when I sleep through my alarm and don’t have a single clean pair of pants to wear. Luckily, whenever I’m really feeling that I’m in a rut, I can check out IGIGI for some instant outfit inspo.

I was browsing the separates, which are crazy good right now, when I stumbled across the IGIGI Condessa Plus-Size Top in Raspberry, and fell in love with this classic boatneck top that has a literal twist.

With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, many plus-size women are filling up their online shopping carts with sexy red dresses and flirty pink skirts so they can get ready for special dinners out with their significant other. Thank goodness that IGIGI makes plus-size Valentine’s Day looks so easy with their handy Valentine’s Day shop. The amazing staff at IGIGI curated a selection of dresses, tops, jewelry, clutches, and other accessories to help you shine on Valentine’s Day. (The IGIGI Elena Clutch in Pearl is especially lustworthy!)

For Valentine’s Day, you can go totally sexy and glamorous with the IGIGI Rachelle Plus-Size Lace Dress in Black/Rouge, or you can do a slightly more unconventional Valentine’s Day look and go with the IGIGI Neve Plus-Size Wrap Dress in Creme De Violette. I ordered the IGIGI Ambrosia Plus-Size Dress in Red for my Valentine’s Day look and I was amazed by how fabulous it looked on. There was some major Jessica Rabbit vibe-age going on.
