I have been in love with this dress since the first time I saw it in an IGIGI lookbook. Yellow is my fave color, so naturally I was drawn to this one. Other than the color, there were so many other design details that made me so excited about this dress, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
This is the Esther dress in Sundance by IGIGI. It features a bold yellow top with a sweetheart neckline and pleating and a beautiful black, white and yellow floral a-line skirt that hits below the knees. Between the yellow top and the floral bottom is a contrasting black waistband with a self-tie front. I love the design of the waistband and how it just hangs perfectly in place at the center of the dress.
Another thing that I absolutely love about this dress is... IT HAS POCKETS! I love dresses with pockets. The pockets are well designed and don't stick out, so they aren't super noticeable...I love that!
Yay pockets! Also, in this image you can see the beautiful ruching detail located on the shoulder and sleeve areas. I think the ruching and pleats are such a great design combo! I love all the little extra touches this dress features.
Above, you can see how the floral skirt flares out, and oh my goodness, it is spectacular! I love the comfortable, spacious design of this skirt. I think I could live in it all day, every day and be perfectly content! It's surprisingly lightweight also, so it's perfect for summer.
The back view features a clean design with the yellow top, black waistband and floral bottom.
The design, along with the fabrics used in this dress, make it such a beautiful, effortless look to wear. I can see myself being able to wear this dress to so many different events and functions. It's comfortable enough for an every day look, nice enough to wear to work or to dinner, and even a great dress for a summer party or wedding.
For this particular ootd, I paired the Esther dress with a pair of strappy black wedges from MIA and a gold necklace with black stones. I also chose a black and gold bag, as pictured a few pics up in this post.
