"If I could use one word to describe how I felt in this dress, it would be, glamours. I felt elegant, glam, but casual at the same time when I wore this vintage inspired number by IGIGI to the Two Point Oh! LA annual blogger picnic. Being one of the few plus-size bloggers in Two Point Oh! LA (a collective of Los Angeles fashion and beauty bloggers) I wanted to make sure I looked and felt amazing, but effortless at the same time.
The blue floral print was the initial reason I fell in love with the dress, I was little worried about the halter cut, being a busty girl with a 38DD chest and I also hadn’t worn a halter dress since middle school. Boy, was I wrong because when I slipped on the dress the fit was amazing, flattering and more importantly supportive. I felt as if I just stepped off a scene in Mad Men where I was Betty Draper’s neighbor. The best part of this dress, I did not have to wear a bra. That’s right, I did not have to wear a strapless bra with this classic vintage inspired dress. The straps of the halter gave me more than enough support and now I know why girls like to go braless, it’s so comfortable!
I’m ecstatic that IGIGI is expanding their horizons with fashion and using different prints and cuts. "
"Making the most of your wardrobe is valuable and having pieces that can quickly and gracefully go from day to night are highly desirable and worth the investment. From dresses to handbags, all you need to do to make a look go from day to night are switching up the accessories and maybe your lipstick.
The maxi length, either it be a skirt or dress is effortlessly glamorous and flattering on all body types and the black wrap dress by IGIGI has quickly become a dress I wear weekly. It's wrap top is great for curvy women because not only is it favorable to women with a full bust, but it also creates a waist and hourglass look for women. I wanted to create an easy moving, casual day look and a dinner party, dazzling night look with the same dress.
For my day look I paired the dress with a structured cotton blazer and sparkly flats for comfort and easy mobility. The handbag is the perfect size to fit everything I would need for a day of running errands and a quick lunch with friends. The necklace adds the perfect pop of color to a neutral palette.
For my night look I added two of my favorite textures, sequins and studs. Adding a pattern or texture to a solid colored outfit is the perfect way to make it pop and give it an evening flare. Adding a colorful heel will also bring a black dress to life, you can throw the 'matching shoes and handbag' rule out the window! As long as you have a fun color palette, you'll look amazing!
Overall, the dress fit perfectly and was beyond flattering. The materials is heavy and feels like a well made garment and it’s very easy to lay upon, making it a staple item in my closet."
