Vivenne Cinch Dress by Kiyonna

Today I wanted to take a closer look at a dress which will make you look effortlessly chic, proving to you that adding a touch of chic to an outfit need not require, well, much effort!

The dress I’m referring to is the Vivienne Cinch Dress by Kiyonna which features simple yet very elegant elements such as a faux wrap silhouette with gathering at left side seam and 3/4 length sleeves which essentially are the foundations of a flattering dress. Made from distinctly dressy fabric in richly hued colors and well-placed cascading ruffles, with this dress you can easily get away with keeping accessories to a minimum. The dress on it’s own will make you stand out.

The Vivienne Cinch Dress comes in four different colors: cobalt blue, black, perfectly purple, and stargazer teal. It is available from size 0X (10/12) to size 5X (30/32), and retails at only $98.00!

IGIGI Introduces Diana, the Curvy Goddess Dress

Diana Goddess Plus Size Dress from IGIGI

Over the past couple of weeks, as I have previously noted on the Scoop, IGIGI has added a number of gorgeous new gowns to their inventory. In fact we’ve already looked at two in particular, the Dangerous Liasons dress, and colorful Eos Goddess Maxi dress.

Yesterday IGIGI unveiled Yuliya Raquel’s latest creation, the Diana Goddess dress, a truly gorgeous piece. Now I have to admit I am not a big fan of maxi dresses. I love how they look on some women, but I don’t like them on myself in particular. I think they make me look bigger, and I don’t think I am tall enough to pull off a dress like that. But that’s just me, and it doesn’t take away the fact that this dress is lovely. It features a halter neckline, and the print of the fabric is a truly original one.

What do you thin of this dress ladies? Are you a fan of maxi dresses, or not?

IGIGI’s Dangerous Liasons

IGIGI has been adding gorgeous dresses to their inventory over the past few weeks, and their latest addition is no exception. Their newest arrival has been called Dangerous Liasions, a show-stopping stunning luxury gown.

It features a stretch lace bodice with scalopped edge, coupled with an empire waist full width chiffon skirt with 6 gores.

It’s available in either black and gold, or black and purple. It retails for $162 and is currently available in sizes 12 to 32.

Violet Print Plus Size Wrap Dress Review

A while back the lovely people at SWAK Designs sent over some goodies to me, and over the coming days and week I will be reviewing these, to show you what you can expect out of SWAK Designs clothing. Today we’re taking a look at Violet Print Plus Size Wrap Dress, a dress added to their collection towards the end of last year. You can have a look at me wearing the dress by watching the video below. A comprehensive overview, and some more pics also follow after the video!

I love a lot of things about this dress, the style, the colors and the shimmery fabric, which give it a very glam look. you can dress this item down by matching it up with some boots and a cardigan, but I would rather prefer dressing it up with some funky accessories and either black or pink high heel pumps The faux wrap style is cute, although it might cause a bit of over exposure for ladies with a bigger bust.

The dress comes with a detachable belt. I am not much of a belt person, so I would opt not to wear it, especially because the fabric is really silky and the belt tends to slide up and down no matter which way to place it. Having said that I’m sure it would be easy to fasten the belt so that it won’t move to much. The fabric of the dress is very lightweight, so this piece will take you definitely into the warmer months. All in all I love this dress! It’s currently available at $54 and in sizes 1X to 6X.

Here are some more pictures of it, as well as some suggestions…

Fat Chic Showcases JustMySize Dress

I was looking around the other day for reviews of JustMySize dresses and I was very lucky in my search as I found out that Diana Rajchel, the creator of Fat Chic has actually created a video review of a dress from JustMySize. In the video she also talks about her very cute teal tights from We Love Colors.

The video review is very helpful in showing you how an actual dress from JustMySize would look on you, so I do hope Diana goes on and creates more similar videos, as I thought it was very helpful… and would come in very handy to other people looking into buying dresses from JustMySize. I hope to add on some video reviews of my own. I’ve just put in an order at Figuresque for some winter plus size tops, which I am hoping to receive soon. One I do receive them, I’ll fill you all in with all the details! So thanks Diana for the super video, and keep up the great blog.
