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 smaller breasts and the neckline hung off of my breasts weirdly.The rest of the dress fit wonderfully though. I have an hourglass body shape and the dress definitely flattered it. I felt very comfortable in it, and that’s from someone who usually does not wear dresses. The quality of the dress was superb, and I definitely think the dress is worth $175. This dress is something that I will be wearing a lot when I go out and have drinks with my friends over the weekend. I would totally buy from IGIGI again. I thin my favorite thing about this dress would have to be the detailing in the lace and the color. The flowers are beautiful in it, and I love the added sheen in flowers on the dress to help them pop. I got a lot of compliments on the dress that night. The link to the dress that I wore is here.
The second dress that I am reviewing is the Amaryllis dress. I wore this dress out to dinner with my friends, but I think the dress would be better worn during more elegant events in the future. It looks very nice. The only thing that really surprised me was how different the color of the dress is in person, than on the website. The photo on the website makes the main body of the dress look to be a more charcoal/purplish color, when really it is rather brown. The red on the flowers is also much brighter in person than I expected from the photo on the website. I did really like how much the flowers popped on it. The dress fit me wonderfully in the bust, though the side zipper was a little awkward and it stuck out a bit. I think it would have laid flatter if I filled out the dress in the area more than I did. I really liked the length of the sleeves on the dress. The dress felt a little heavier, and I appreciated that as well. The one thing I would definitely change on the dress is the side zipper. It was really rather bulky, though my fiancée informed me that she couldn’t tell and it was more of a personal comfort thing. I wore this dress with my black tights and copper flats. In the future, I would wear this dress to more formal events as it really does look rather fancy. I think it is worth the price of $250.The flowers are definitely my favorite thing on the dress. They remind me a little of poppies and those are one of my favorite flowers. The link to this dress can be found right here.
