You’ve certainly heard of Gracie Designs, the Etsy superstar. We were fortunate to have an exclusive Gracie Designs trunk show at Weetacon this year, and got first dibs on the adorable accessories, purses and hats (it’s actually a game to go through the Weetacon Flickr Pool and play “Spot the Gracie Designs Accessory” because practically everyone nabbed a hat, purse, scarf or all of the above). Kelley, the lady behind Gracie’s amazing patterns, just happened to be a perfect fit for an extra dress that didn’t have a home, and was gracious enough to review it for us!
I love Igigi’s Tres Chic in Plum for several reasons. The first is that is makes me feel fancy! I love the color, this deep plum/eggplant is just perfect for fall and winter, and you can brighten it up with cute accessories and make it work in the summer too. I work a lot of boutique events and this is great for looking good and feeling comfortable. The knit material has a nice feel, and is quite thick, so it clings enough, but not too much.
I love the twist accent in the middle, below the bust. It falls just perfect for my figure. The only complaint I have about this dress is that you can see a bit of the serged seam in the twist of the dress at the front. Otherwise, it is extremely well constructed and I am a seamstress, so I have a very picky eye. I highly recommend this dress and can’t wait to get some more dresses from Igigi. I plan to get more for my events, as they fit me very well.
