"At Weetacon, I and some of the other ladies once again had the opportunity to model clothes generously provided free for review purposes by IGIGI. I got the Aubriella dress, which caught my eye on the site because it’s in my favorite color family of purple. The bodice and sleeves are a solid plum color and the skirt is a plum and lavender print with abstract hearts emerging from the pattern as the motifs head toward the hemline.
I wore this out to dinner Saturday night of the con, accessorized with drop earrings and subtly sparkly pewter heels. If I’d brought a necklace that worked with the dress, I would have worn one, but I didn’t feel too exposed leaving my neckline bare.
As I’ve come to expect from IGIGI, this was well made, including a full lining. I was excited to try it on when I first got it up to my hotel room; I pulled it over my head and was panicked when it seemed like it wasn’t going to fit—then I realized it has a side zipper. Well, yes, that does make a difference, and when on and zipped up, it fits nice and close but not too tight. It was very comfortable to wear and flowed over the parts of my body I don’t necessarily like to highlight.
No crazy restrictive undergarments were required, either. The square neckline was something different than I usually wear. I liked the look of it, and it did cover my bra straps, which is always a good thing. The wide waistband on this hit just below my bust line; that’s not my usual preference because my natural waist several inches below that is the narrowest part of my torso and I like to show it off. Despite that, I did find this flattering to wear so perhaps I should reevaluate my avoidance of the Empire waist.
I’m thinking I’ll wear this again when Mr. K and I go see Book of Mormon later this month. Heck, I like it so much I might even wear it to work and let people wonder what I’m up to that I’m not in my usual much more casual garb. "
