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.

Getting Ready For Holiday Parties With The IGIGI Neve Plus-Size Wrap Dress In Jade

Posted by on December 16, 2013

Since we are officially in the Holiday season, I find myself subconsciously gravitating towards outfits that have a little bit of a “Christmassy” flair to them. This is the time of year when we can wear as much red, green, and gold as we want. Plus, shiny fabrics and lots of glitter are highly encouraged, which is a big bonus in my book. If I could dress everyday like I was about to adorn the top of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, I would be ecstatic.

I paired the IGIGI Neve Plus-Size Wrap Dress in Jade with a leather jacket and boots, but it would also look amazing with a cardigan and kitten heels for a more office appropriate look.

However, the IGIGI Neve Plus-Size Wrap Dress in Jade was a great, sexy, and understated option for a Holiday dinner that my friend’s work was having without looking too over the top. I’m not trying to dress like Mrs. Claus here (even though she clearly was the one running stuff at the North Pole, #respect).

Dressing Boldly In Ruby Lace With The IGIGI Plus-Size Regina Dress

Posted by on December 2, 2013

For a long, long time growing up, I dressed to hide. I was always on the heavy side and it seemed that fashion had no real place for me. I was an outcast because of my weight and so I wore ill-fitting jeans and hoodies and pretty much called it a day. It’s not that I didn’t love fashion (I really did! And still do), but I just had no idea how to become part of the fashion world.

Plus-size women can be every bit as fashionable as our straight-size sisters.

It wasn’t until high school when I started to spend more time shopping online that I discovered that there were designers who actually make clothes that would fit my body and were still cute. I deeply hope that in the future young girls will not go through the same struggles that I did. Every single body deserves to be respected and part of that respect comes from designers not limiting their sizes and making clothes that can fit anyone and everyone.

I now have a wardrobe full of beautiful colors, patterns, fabrics, and silhouettes that even my straight-size friends envy, but it is still easy to feel like the odd, fat girl out when I’m searching for a very specific type of dress and I see hundreds of straight size options and only one or two plus-size options.

For a day out with friends, I paired the Regina dress with my trusty denim jacket, chunky brown heeled ankle boots and a strong red lip.

I decided a few months ago, that I wanted needed a red lace dress. There’s something so wonderfully decadent about a lace dress. It’s classic, sexy, and utterly feminine. Lace is probably my absolute favorite material and I’m really not alone in that. It’s been a sartorial staple since the 15th century. It’s easy enough to find a plus-size dress with lace since it is so common, but I really wanted red.

A deep, mysterious, sultry red shade with just the right amount of sexy. I thought that a deep red, more of a ruby shade, would transition from Fall to Winter very well, and I knew that that shade would be ideal for  the deluge of holiday parties that will soon be upon us. That’s where the IGIGI Regina Plus-Size Dress in Ruby Argentan Lace comes in.

The dress is cut in a shift style, so it fits close to the body without being body conscious (body-con) or too tight. It  shows off my curves in a very appropriate way. It also has a bit of a longer length, so I won’t have to worry about showing too much leg at any family gatherings or office holiday parties that I choose to wear it to. The Regina dress also comes with a belt, but I chose to wear it without, since I had my coat and I didn’t want to interrupt the front line of the dress.

The Regina dress is made from a poly/elastane material which has a good stiffness to it and provides a little extra structure for women who want more control over their figure.

The Regina has a universally flattering and very classic boat neckline and great below the elbow 3/4 sleeves. It’s also fully-lined like the majority of IGIGI dresses so you don’t have to worry about wearing any special undergarments to keep everything smooth and seamless.

I finally found my perfect red lace dress.

The Regina dress can be dressed up or dressed down.
