My first dress that I am reviewing is the Marisol Lace Dress in Truffle. I wore the dress while at a karaoke event. I paired the dress with my black tights and flats. I absolutely loved the color. The picture on the website made the flowers in the dress look a little blueish, but the dress was more of a charcoal color with steel flowers in person. I liked it a lot anyway. The dress was definitely made for someone with larger breasts, though. I have rather broad shoulders and …

The Francesca Plus Size Dress in Dark Currant is one of my very favorite IGIGI dresses.  I have two others in this style (one in black and one in burgundy) and am so pleased that they are getting more colors.  The fit on the Francesca is so comfortable and flattering.  Wearing this dress just gives me so much confidence.
I feel beautiful and it shows in my ability to socialize with everyone. That is no small feat!
The dress is beautifully made and like most IGIGI dresses, is lined.  The color, dark …

As part of the Igigi event at Weetacon, I was given the Rachelle lace dress in Onyx, in exchange for writing an honest review.
This is the Rachelle dress, which retails for $170. It was very high-quality, and that price point seemed appropriate. I dressed it down a bit for karaoke night with a fun rainbow necklace from Tatty Devine, and my trusty pewter Tieks.
As the reviewers on the Igigi website mentioned, and as you may be able to see from the fit on me, this dress runs a little small in the bust, so …

If you have enjoyed the Weetacon Wit or previous brews, how would you feel about two cases of a Natural 20 Exclusive brew? Weetacon’s own Scott will brew five gallons of any beer of the winner’s choosing. (Details can be worked out post-raffle.)
Footnote #1: the only limits are that it has to be beer and it can’t use lactobacillus, pediococcus, brettanomyces, etc. for fear of contaminating his brew gear. Depending on the style of beer, it may or may not fit well in the brewing schedule as …

Any Weetacon attendee knows that socks are mandatory and extra socks are always a good idea. Let Psy warm your feet while this stylish (albeit non Korean) mug warms your paws with a variety of Korean teas (not pictured). And isn’t everything just a little bit better with Korean candy? Yep, thought so. Carry on.
