"This dress is made of the usual polyester/elastane combination which is both forgiving and flattering (not to mention comfortable).
I love the cut of this dress and that it looks like I have a shrug on but don’t. Like almost all of their dresses, this one is lined, and I do not know how they do it but their linings always manage to stay in place. When I was younger I hated lined dresses because they seemed to work their way up around the waist — never had that problem with an Igigi dress.
Another favorite aspect is the crossover twist of fabric in the front which they call a “princess knot”. I find it to be incredibly flattering and a wee bit shaping. It does a good job of covering up the ruching seam too.
I love the simple v-neck that offers up enough skin but does not make me self-conscious about whether or not my bra is showing; at the straps or at the peak. Were it not such a hot day I probably would have worn a necklace but I tend to become homicidal when I have something around my neck in high humidity — at the very least downright cranky.
It just so happened that Julep sent me a gift of coral bobby pins in my last Maven box and they color matched perfectly with the coral poppies on the dress. I do not wear much in my hair because well, it I don’t have much and it generally does not stay, but these little cuties stayed put all day. I even forgot about them.
On the downside, I did find this dress a bit too warm for a hot summer day. It is dry clean (not even you can hand wash if you really need to). Fit wise it does go up a little more in the back than I would like — thank you butt shelf — although not as much as I thought it would — the fabric is very forgiving.
Overall, I love this dress, right down to the coral poppies and grey back splash. There are only a few sizes left in this style but Igigi has many other beautiful options for summer available and arriving."
"This multi-fabric jacket combines a comfortable knit black on arms and back with a classic wool inset in front. I loved the fit of this jacket which I decided to wear with jeans (and a bright green cotton cami) instead of dress pants like it is styled on the website. The jacket really does work for casual or career.
Jeff and I went to one of the local forts on the long weekend — we made a day of it — short drive, sight-seeing, and lunch. It was a beautiful day. For the most part, I found the jacket warm enough on its own (I had a cami underneath).
re is a close up of the large buttons, the wool with pink thread and a slight sparkle (love), and the mud on my jeans from when I fell. That’s right, total face plant. Wish I had it on video. I was looking up at the black partially open shutter while walking on soft ground in two inch boots and fell into a soft spot. Luckily it was grassy and soft. Also lucky I was not the one carrying the camera.
I love the overall look and feel of this jacket. I found the collar to be a bit bulky when we sat down to lunch and had to keep pressing it out of the way. With the cami on underneath, I probably could have opened it but did not think of it at the time. I would not want to wear more than a cami under this jacket, even though the wool is a small section it is warm — but I was not uncomfortable; I could not wear this if it was a full wool jacket.
Like everything else I have from IGIGI, this jacket is well made. The Miuccia jacket is available in sizes 12 to 30 for $108 and Igigi ships internationally."
