130. (Igigi Review + Giveaway)

Hey everyone! I have recently been contacted by Igigi by Yuliya Raquel to do a review on one of their dresses of my choosing! So I chose the Babette Curvy Dress because I didn't want to choose a cocktail dress or anything, as it wasn't really my thing, I don't often wear those so I chose something I would most likely wear on a day-to-day basis.





Alright, let's get started. So I ordered this dress in a 22 because on the website it looked like it would run small or something. It's actually a stretchy forgiving fabric, I would say almost body-con like as it clings onto my body. So shapewear is a must if you don't want lumps and bumps. It is a pretty dress for the office and it looks just like it does on the website, except I think the blue is a tad bit brighter in person than on the website. (The colour may be a bit skewed on my camera because of the settings, but it's pretty close to the pictures). Normally it's something I would belt, but I wanted you guys to see the waist detail of the dress so there it is. Again, a problem I have is that it's too long on my body, but that's just a preference of mine. I like my stuff shorter, at least knee length. This goes past the knee for me for sure.

All in all, I'd give this dress 4 out of 5 stars. The dress is obviously well made as it is thick and perfect for cold offices, haha. There's not much faults to it except maybe I didn't expect such a stretchy/body hugging dress. I usually wear a 20 so I'm kind of glad I sized up or else it'd probably cling all over. Also, for some reason, there's lines on the dress where my belly is, that's my tights waist showing I think, and it just shows how really clingy the dress is. (My tights aren't shapewear! :P)

  1. That's a cute dress! I think you can easily shorten it. Like right above the knee, it'd be nicer. :)

  2. Love your blog!

    I'd get the CEO dress to wear to conferences. It's so fierce, especially if paired with some bright pumps!

  5. I'd never heard of this company before, but WOW, they have some beautiful clothing. I've fallen in love with the Helena Dress in Magenta/Navy (it's in the sale rack, I hope that's ok!). Both colors look great on me, and I think I'd pair it with a white/grey cardigan and a statement belt. Maybe some silver flats too. I like that the dress has long sleeves (umm AND pockets!) but it seems casual enough that I could wear it to school or work!

  11. I like it, though I definitely think it's different from what I've seen you wear in other posts (which isn't bad!) It's actually great you found something new to try out. I can't enter the contest because I don't have a Facebook or Twitter, but best of luck to those who do!

  21. I will choose the Florentia dress because I love the sheer and solid mix. I would wear it for a night out for drinks for friends. That seems to come up pretty often and I love to dress up everytime, looks like a perfect evening dress. I would wear it with a pair of striking earrings and also my black lace flats. It's a look that never goes wrong!
