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 …

I needed some new dresses.  I have been accepted to some more upscale events for my handmade business. This opportunity could not have come at a better time. I was so lucky to have been given two dresses, for free, to review by Igigi. One of my big events I plan to wear one of the dresses for is the indie craft show craftstravaganza  .  I was sure which dress I was going to wear, but after trying on the second dress, I am so unsure.  The 2nd dress has …

 As part of the 2014 Weetacon event, I was very generously gifted not one, but TWO gorgeous Igigi dresses!  I was ecstatic!  Over the MOON to hear this amazing news!I’ve heard from all the ladies at Weetacon that participate in the Igigi events over the years, and experienced first hand last year when I had a chance to model the Skye Dress at Weetacon how truly amazing their dresses are.Now, I’ll tell you a secret.  I’ve worn a dress 2 times in the past 13 or so years.  I wore both …

Another Weetacon is in the history books and another Igigi fashion event is ready for review.  This year I received two dresses for free in exchange for agreeing to wear them to official Weetacon happenings and posting an honest review so you will be encouraged to visit the Igigi website and order lots of gorgeous clothes for yourself.
 
 

 
My first is called The Olympia Plus Size Maxi Dress and here I am wearing it.
The fabric is soft, flowing, and feels wonderful against the skin.  It’s easy to slip over your head and very comfortable …

It’s the Igigi event! My favorite event! I was given two pieces in exchange for an honest review, and I wore them for the first time last week at Weetacon.

First: the Luella Infinity tunic in Emerald. Igigi has been offering these tops in different colors for months now, and I’ve come close to buying one before. The wrap bodice style reminded me of other things I’ve done well with, like the Twist tops from Kiyonna. So I was pretty sure that I’d like this piece, since it’s a good length …

I received the following garments from IGIGI for free in exchange for my honest review.
Again this year at Weetacon I was thrilled to participate in the IGIGI fashion event.  This year we received two outfits and narrowing my choices to three was difficult.  All their dresses are beautiful but I rarely wear dresses so this year I chose separates.

The first outfit I received was the Lexa Jacket ($132) with the Elizabeth Pants in Black ($82).  I already had the top the model is wearing with the jacket, the Greenwich Top …
