Dress #1 – Chelsea Dress in Fuego

This is not a fade-into-the-woodwork dress, and while ‘look at me!’ attire …

IGIGI, Weetacon 2014 »

OMG y’all, we’re doing it AGAIN. We get to review new IGIGI dresses at Weetacon 2014 and I am super excited, mostly because I have a closet full of IGIGI dresses and I still love every single one of them. For the past 4 or 5 years, if I need a new work dress or something special and fancy for a holiday party or fundraising gala, I immediately turn to the IGIGI website. I’ve also been known to send my friends over to the website as soon as they whine …

Weetacon 2013 »

[30 Sep 2013 | No Comment | ]

We recognize that Weetacon is a hot ticket and spots go really fast. We’re committed to retaining that Weetacon magic that comes from people who return again and again (aka the Weetacon Veterans) but we also are committed to giving new folks the opportunity to experience Weetacon as well. As such, we give veterans priority registration, based upon seniority (aka how many Weetacons they have officially registered for in the past).
Weetacon veterans who have attended all previous Weetacons will get the first opportunity for early registration. Veterans who have registered …

Disclosure: IGIGI was kind enough to offer us free garments in exchange for honest and heartfelt reviews. My views are my own and now so is the Bardot dress.
I am such a fan of the IGIGI line. The garments are always well-constructed and incredibly flattering. I am fortunate to have many IGIGI dresses in my closet because once you find a winner, you tend to trust that store to deliver beautiful dresses.
