Hey curvy girls all over the world,
When you're a mom and girlfriend with a full time job and a hobby that can be dubbed a part time job, your time is precious. Every minute and every second counts. When I shop for clothes, often times I am looking for pieces that will work double duty. I need items that can have me looking sharp and put together for work and sexy and chic for evening. Sometimes it can be a challenge finding that piece but when I do, my life seems to be a little more easy and my mornings seem to go a whole lot smoother.
When I think of plus size brands that actually create clothes for the woman on the go, Igigi always comes to mind. The clothes are made from quality fabrics and the cuts are always figure flattering. In my review of their latest collection I said that Igigi is one of few plus size life style fashion brands. They offer clothes that can carry you to the office and then out for cocktails.
My lifestyle requires a wardrobe that does just that. At work, I like to look professional yet young and chic and for nights when I have blog events or cocktail parties to attend, I like to wear pieces that skim my curves and show a little skin. In comes Igigi "Kaori" dress.
The Kaori dress is one of those pieces that are a must not only for your everyday wardrobe but it's a fantastic item to pack in your suitcase for business and vacation trips. I liked how the Kaori dress could be styled a myriad of ways. It can go from a dress to a top, to a skirt with just a tuck of a sleeve.
For work, I teamed it up with a casual wide stretch leather belt, a colorful plated necklace, and pink colorblocked suede platform heels.
For those after work events and cocktail hour, I was able to easily turn the dress into a one shoulder style. Now, I know people tell plus size girls to belt everything, but sometimes, I don't want to belt it.For a spring evening, I chose to spice it up with a pair of gold and cream zebra print sandals, a gold and purple necklace, and a gold cuff.
I could easily fit all the accessories in my work bag and in a matter of minutes be ready for cocktail hour.
The fit and feel of the dress was extremely comfortable, perfect for a mom and fashion blogger like me.
