"I had a pretty important informal business meeting last night at a local art show I attended, where I was meeting someone that I wanted to impress professionally. Sometimes I hate those meetings where you have to be introduced to someone at an event because it can be tough to stand out when you're one of many people they are meeting that night. But when I met said power woman, the first thing she said to me was "I love your outfit." Step one of mission accomplished.
So, skirts can be a challenge if you're hippy, especially when it seems like every pencil skirt hits above the knee. Seriously, why is that? Any woman with hips above a size 8 is probably going to have the skirt ride up as she walks and then before you know it, your pencil skirt is a mini. No bueno. But enter Igigi to the rescue. This beautiful tailored pencil skirt hits at just the right length and stayed in its rightful place all night. The lining was a little funny at the bottom occasionally, but other than that, I was 100 percent impressed. Order a size down for optimal fit.
"The Rebecca gown in emerald is truly a gown made for a queen. It’s both sexy and elegant with a leg slit and a flattering neckline. But the long sleeves give it just enough modesty. I also love the belt – it felt very fashion forward and was super flattering. I think this is a gown that would work for all ages."
"The Eva gown is definitely one of those gowns that really grows on you every time you wear it. I wasn’t sure about wearing a longer gown with an allover print, but I really grew to love it once I put it on. It’s pretty dressy on its own, but I decided to wear it to a church event that was a little less formal by pairing it with a blazer, belt and hat. I got so many compliments on it, and it seemed like every time I looked in the mirror, I liked it a little more. It’s lightweight and comfortable as well."
"The Claudette dress had me feeling like I was in Paris in the 1950s. The black and white and red color palette is flattering for all skin types and the dress is the perfect day-to-night look. The belt means it's figure flattering if you like to emphasize your waist, but it can easily be worn without. It’s also very comfortable and has a great movement to it, especially the skirt."
