Hello lovely folk of blogland. A while ago...(OK a long while ago, sorry Tanya) The lovely Tanya, owner of Curvy and Stylish contacted Toni and I to see if we'd like to review a piece from the IGIGI range she stocks. Curvy and Stylish carry a range plus size designer wear including Anna Scholz, Carolyn de la Drapiere and Fiona Paxton.
I was really excited because, I've always wanted to try an IGIGI piece especially after seeing Nicole's blog about her visit to IGIGI HQ in San Francisco.
Of course Toni and I ended up picking the same dress, so instead of having a fight, no seriously, I would have wrestled her for it... we decided to go for the same piece but dress it in two different ways. Toni has gone for casual and I've gone dressy.
The dress itself is the IGIGI Green and Blue Maxi, priced at £84.98. For an occasion dress I think is quite reasonable and as I'm sure Toni will display it can quite easily be worn again in a casual style.

I loved the feel of the dress and how well made it was, its fully lined and is made of a heavy polyester/elastane mix, so its got plenty of stretch in it. I'm actually wearing the US 14/16 which is a UK 18/20 so its very generous. The blue and green aren't colours I'd usually go for, but I really liked them. I accessorised with pearls and off white hair flower.
