Get Gorgeous with Plus-Size Valentine’s Day Looks from IGIGI

Posted by on January 29, 2014

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.

A Very Special Plus-Size Little Black Dress

Posted by on January 27, 2014

So, it’s freezing outside. Actually, literally freezing. In Chicago this week we hit record low temperatures, with the forecast dropping to negative 18 degrees before the wind chill. On the bright side, however, it’s been deceptively sunny. So when I stepped outside to take these pictures I got to soak up some much needed vitamin D. Luckily, the IGIGI Genevieve Plus-Size Dress pairs well with my leather jacket and it gave me some protection from the icy air when I wore it out to dinner with friends.

The IGIGI Genevieve Plus-Size Dress is a really stretchy jersey material, so it has good natural cling and it is incredibly comfortable, especially for a cocktail dress.

The IGIGI Genevieve Plus-Size Dress (which is on super sale right now!) is a faux wrap dress with gorgeous sequin details to add some sparkle to this fantastic little black dress. It’s quite curve hugging as well and there is strategic ruching on the sides to camouflage any problem areas.

Mastering The Colorblocking Trend For Plus-Size Figures With IGIGI’s Evey Dress

Posted by on January 1, 2014

Colorblocking is one of those trends that really is cyclical. It first became popular in the 1960s when fashion icons like Twiggy started playing with strategically placed color palettes in their ensembles. And before Twiggy, there were, of course, artists Mondrian and Rothko in the early 1900s. Most people are familiar with Mondrian’s abstract color fields. Designers started bringing back colorblocking in a major way on the Spring 2011 runways and for the last three years colorblocking has been everywhere.

There’s a lot of theorizing about the most flattering or successful ways to colorblock, but the most important thing is to have fun with it. Personally, I like it when garments do the work for me and include colorblocking as part of the design. So when I saw the IGIGI Evey Plus-Size Colorblock Dress in Black/Royal, I was drawn to the effortlessly chic look of the navy and black colorblocked design.

The 3/4 length sleeves and pockets make this dress comfortable, versatile, and practical.

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.

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.
