Vika and fredlet
This year Igigi sent me the Vika Dress to review. I really love the fabric; its a silk scarf feel and flows just as well as their other dresses do… that’s one of the things that I love about their dresses, they twirl so nicely. (Also the colors are perfect for me; score!)
This is another empire style waist, which I never in my life have been able to wear…except for the other 4 Igigi empire waist dresses I have – see where I’m going with this? I’m always impressed by the variety shapes and sizes that can wear these dresses. I think the only thing I would change for me is that the black fabric portion could be just a few inches longer or the belt could be a broad one to bridge the little bit of a gap where my waist is.
I think this one is more dressy than the other dresses that I have. The black Francesca (and the blue one as well) are super neutral so that I can either add a sweater or a coat or various bits of jewelry and make it formal or relatively casual. I’m also thinking that this particular dress needs heels but very little jewelery. Perhaps a small shawl if it is cold, but it really doesn’t need anything else as it stands on its own. Low maintenance is good for me.
Last but not least, this dress travels well-as all their dresses seem to do. I had this in a packing cube until I stopped weeping copiously from having to come home from Weetacon (elapsed time 1.5 weeks) and it wasn’t wrinkled. Really, paying the $128 for this dress would be worth it for something that fits me so well and isn’t a prima donna about handling it with kid gloves when I have to travel with it.
Here’s their model (clearly several feet taller than me) in the Vika dress (click to go to the website):
