The Power of the Perfect Plus-Size Wrap Dress

Posted by on December 30, 2013

I’ve been really drawn to wrap dresses lately. I’m not sure whether it’s because the silhouette is so flattering or just because they’re so easy, but I’ve been wearing more and more of them. It’s essentially turning into my new obsession!

There’s something really great in having a dress that works for you and can be pulled into the exact position that you want. With a wrap dress, you never have to worry about your bodice falling at the right place or belting it at the perfect part of your waist, because you have total control over the fit.

Naturally, when I saw the IGIGI Fayette Plus-Size Dress in Purple, I knew that it was another wrap dress that I simply had to add to my closet.

The IGIGI Fayette Plus-Size Dress in Purple has a flippy a-line skirt with a beautiful sheer overlay, perfect for a night out dancing.

Confidence and Fantastic Plus-Size Fashion with Kate London-James

Posted by on December 27, 2013

Kate London-James, 24, lives in Barry Island, South Wales and works as a compliance administrator for a large recruitment company. She is a confident, risk-taking young woman with a passion for beauty, fashion, and music. Kate describes herself as a very positive person and she goes out of her way to tell people they look fabulous.

Kate believes that there are far too many negative things being said to people these days and far too few encouraging, confidence-boosting things, so she likes to do her part to change this sad trend. Kate blogs at “How Kate Does Fashion” and she frequently posts her adorable “Outfits of the Day” (OotD) on her Instagram account.

Kate took the time to chat with IGIGI about loving (and more importantly, wearing) fashion at any size and learning how to develop self-confidence.

Sporting a Comfy, Casual Look with the IGIGI Virginia Plus-Size Dress in Cobalt Blue

Posted by on December 26, 2013

There’s something so cozy about a flannel shirt when it’s rainy outside and you don’t really feel like going anywhere or running those last minute Christmas errands.

The little cobalt blue lace cap sleeves are dainty and feminine while providing some coverage and allowing the dress to transition the seasons well.

I decided to wear the IGIGI Virginia Plus-Size Dress in Cobalt Blue with my favorite flannel top for the cool weather. I added my chocolate brown suede riding boots to round out the look for a casual day of weekday shopping and lunch out with a few friends. Plus, whenever I wear flannel, it always kind of makes me feel like it’s 1996 and I’m headed to a Hole concert to hang out with Courtney Love.

Ridding Ourselves of ‘Short Phobia’ with Plus-Size Fashion Blogger and Poet Cori Zaragoza

Posted by on December 25, 2013

Cori Zaragoza, 23, is a writer living in San Diego, CA and a recent graduate of San Francisco State. She loves dark lipstick, late movie nights, and some days she likes to look like a Mexican Wednesday Addams, but most importantly, she’s a radical plus-size fashion blogger and a poet.

Cori was never really into fashion growing up. She says that she was kind of a weird kid and mainly wore band t-shirts and thrift store finds. However, when she moved to San Francisco for college, her eyes were opened to the much more creative side of fashion. “Everyone is so stylish in San Francisco that it gave me a lot of inspiration and confidence in myself,” says Cori.

Cori took the time to talk with IGIGI about her fascination with the on-point fashion sense of her favorite fictional characters and “short phobia.”
