I had so much fun modeling the Tropical Beauty dress, that when Wendy Bix suggested I could write another review for my IGIGI Francesca dress in black for another giveaway, I said “Sure!”.

I bought this dress almost three years ago and it’s one of the very few dresses that IGIGI keeps in stock and is still available for sale. I can see why, because this is the kind of dress that is exactly what you’d want in a little black dress: very comfortable fabric, stretchy and completely impossible to wrinkle. You could …

I’ve never been much for fashion. Even as a small child I disliked dressing up. I learned that dresses meant scratchy lace digging into my neck and stiff slips scratching everywhere else. Not only were they uncomfortable, you just couldn’t climb a tree in one. I quickly established, to my mother’s chagrin, that I wasn’t having anything to do with girly frills.I’ve managed since then in pants, tee shirts and maybe a sweatshirt over the top. If I want to get fancy I wear my red polo shirt with the dinosaur embroidered on the front.

Then …

This year is my first time reviewing an Igigi dress. I was extremely excited after seeing the dresses last year, and because I never seem to find dresses very flattering on my shape. Igigi sent me the Lynette Sweater Dress in Navy/Grey and I couldn’t be happier.
This dress is the perfect winter dress! My very first observation was that the fabric is pretty heavy, (it is a sweater dress after all) which keeps me warm yet I didn’t get too overheated wearing it at dinner after the Igigi fashion show. Warmth is definitely a plus at …

I am proud to say that I now have four Igigi dresses hanging in my closet, all timeless, all as fashionably fresh as the day I received them. My latest addition, thanks to Yuliya Raquel and Wendy Weetabix is the O’Hara dress in purple. The thing that amazes me about the Igigi dresses is the fact that they can be squished into the tiniest of bags,  left there for days then pulled out and looks as wrinkle-free as if they had just returned from the dry cleaner. They are absolutely the thing to pack …

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 …

I first fell in love with the Tropical Beauty dress when I saw it online at the Igigi web site.  I really wanted that one!  The colors are so lovely, it really lives up to it name “Tropical Beauty”. I felt it would be perfect for our vacation to Hawaii. We go out for supper on Valentines Day on Maui at Ruth Chris and Igigi’s Tropical Beauty gown would be awesome for that special occasion.
When the dress came, it fit like a glove, but was a tad too long.  My …
