Plus Size OOTD + Review: IGIGI Adelle Dress in Garnet Lace

It's been cold and snowy here, and I have been staring at this beautiful dress hanging on my clothes rack day after day. I have been wanting to wear it so badly, and I just couldn't wait any longer! Today, it was actually in the 30's outside, so I grabbed this dress and tried my best to pretend it was warm and spring...and I regret nothing about this decision! haha

This beautiful little red dress is the Adelle in Lace Garnet from IGIGI. It's such a gorgeous, bold color, and it was just what I needed on this gloomy winter day. This fantastic dress features the most exquisite lace skirt. It's truly one of the most beautiful, special garments I have ever seen. I am absolutely in awe of the detail in the skirt. It's so beautifully crafted.

As with other IGIGI dresses I have tried, the comfort level is out of this world! This dress is perfect for a special occasion or a date night. It looks so nice, and it will keep you feeling comfortable throughout the night. The surplus top is soft and has some stretch to it, so it helps give a perfect fit. The lace overlay of the skirt is generous in size, and moves with ease.


The length makes this dress a great option for a variety of seasons and occasions. I could see myself wearing this dress all year. It will be a great way to switch things up from just wearing the usual little black dress to events and function.

  Here is a closer view of the surplus top. This dress also has a defined waistband, which I love! It creates a beautiful tailored look at the natural waist.

I paired this dress with a gold necklace from Target and some rhinestone embellished strappy heels. I also added an adorable ace of hearts clutch from GoJane to complete the look.

The little red dress is now a must for my wardrobe! How did I live so long without it?

Plus Size OOTD: Animal Print + Neon

I am loving this Taylor animal print dress that arrived in my latest package from Gwynnie Bee. It's so comfortable, it's a great weight for the colder months. The fit and flare design is one of my faves too, of course!

The dress has a fun animal print that I love. When it comes to styling animal prints, I like to treat them as neutrals and add bright pops of color to complete the look. It's super easy to do, and it keeps me from feeling too dull or too matchy-matchy. For this look, I chose bold neon colored accessories.

  I finished off my look with a black denim moto jacket, leggings and lack riding boots. These really helped make the neon colors pop even more! 

This adorable bag is from Target. I found it in the clearance section recently. They have been having some super cute bags lately! 

I received this colorful chunky necklace a few years ago from SheInside. It's so fun to wear, and it is a statement piece that really brightens up any look.
