Today is all about the Igigi Leigh Lace Dress.
As readers of this blog know, there are two factors that heavily influence my experience with this dress: I’ve been trying to find decent lacey plus size things for the last year and a half and … I’ve been drooling over Igigi dresses since I started this blog.
Igigi may actually in its way be why I started this blog – I saw their goods back in 2006, and I knew there was hope for the plus-sizes yet.
So when I was contacted about reviewing a dress and showing off a picture or few (OK, 10, since that’s what my slide shows allow) after doing a Snoopy dance at my computer I immediately said yes.
The dress, alone, is stunning. High quality workmanship, an easy fit, and there was virtually no need to strap, scrap, or in any way bind myself. I took it for its debut mission to see Roman Holiday at the Guthrie Theater – the dress is worthy of a little Audrey homage – and since we were at one of the more interesting interiors of Minneapolis, my partner and I decided to have a little fun with it. So along with the accoutrements thrown in by Igigi, a bolero jacket (also beautifully made) and a sash, I added a few things from my own humor-based sense of style. I did work in a few shots of how I believe the designer originally intended it – and then I also did how I would wear it.
Sometimes I go and hug my Igigi. Oh yes, yes I do.
