IGIGI's Latest Masterpiece – The Sarafan Dress

IGIGI have done it yet again. They managed to create simple yet chic and classic elegance made for the full figured body. The latest addition to their wonderful range of plus size dresses is the Sarafan dress, a dress which is set to win the hearts of many curvy women! It will also definitely be responsible for setting men’s hearts racing when they see full figured women looking gorgeous in this perfect summer dress.

Available in brown, magenta and fiery red the Sarafan dress from IGIGI is a chic yet daring dress. It incorporated adjustable, self-tie straps to ensure a perfect fit: you can set the straps as tight or loose as your desire. A plunging neckline dominates this dress, which gives it a very sexy feel and that is however not overly done. The key to a sexy and chic look is to always leave something to the imagination, and the Sarafan dress does this perfectly. It shows off a bit of leg, which you can help enhance further by wearing some nice sandals or mules with heels. The plunging neckline accentuates the bust area, and the V-neck back show off some more of the right skin. The rest of the curves are hugged to perfection.

This dress can be worn in two ways. With a belt (which is comes along with the dress… yes!), or else without the belt. I personally have a fear of belts… well not quite. I just never seem to be convinced they look good on me for some reason. Though I can see why this dress would make more of an impression if worn with the belt: besides giving the curvy figure a more defined waist, the belt also helps add that extra sense of style.

So why do I like this dress so much?

  • It is very simple yet very elegant. The simplicity helps flatter the curvy figure, and makes it very versatile.

  • Also, in my opinion this dress has a slight retro vibe to it. Is it the colors perhaps?
  • The color choices are vibrant and so fitting for that Spring/Summer feeling. I personally am not very fond of the brown version of this dress, then again this boils down to tastes.
  • Any plus size women wearing this dress is bound to stand out… for all the right reasons!

So ladies, I am off to buy my own Sarafan dress. I am still undecided on whether to buy the Magenta version or Fiery Red. What do you suggest?

I will definitely update you on my choice very soon! In the meantime take a closer look at the Sarafan dress at IGIGI.

Instructional Video for Monif C's Convertible Dress

Monif C. has announced this week the launch on a brand new instructional video for the “Marylin” Convertible Dress. If you aren’t familiar with the convertible dress, this is a unique plus size dress designed by Monif C, herself, which basically incorporates tens of dresses all into one! Why? Because the dress ties up in several different ways… Monif C. in fact has counted 22 different ways to tie up the dress so far. If you feel like a halter dress one day, and a baby doll top the next, you can get both looks through this extremely stylish and versatile plus size dress.

The new instructional video which has just been launched was created to help out both customers who have purchase the convertible dress and those who haven’t yet because they think they won’t be able to figure out how to wear the dress. Now you can easily learn different ways how to wear the dress, as Monif C. herself demonstrates several different styles on a plus size model on this new video. So there’s definitely no more excuses for not to wear or get yourself the Monif C. convertible dress. Check out the video and get the dress before it sells out.

Whitney Cunningham Eliminated from America's Next Top Model

My intuition has proved me right.

You might recall a couple of weeks ago I posted on the fact that Diane Zalewski was eliminated from America’s Next Top Model. Within that same post I remarked that, in my opinion, it will be a long time until curvier models really make a stand and move forward in such competitions. To me it’s just a stereotype in such shows which will take years to break down. Unfortunately I was proved right as this week the last remaining ‘plus size’ contestant, Whitney Cunningham, was eliminated from the show. So America’s Next Top Model returns to being a skinny-only content.

Pity. But to me this was to be expected.

Jahqoi Website Gets a Facelift

I have just heard from Dorez today, who happens to be plus size fashion designer Anna Nicole’s mother, and an essential part of the Jahqoi team. Dorez informed me that the Jahqoi website has been given a complete revamp. Of course, I quickly visited to check out the new website design, and I must say the revamp works for me.

I feel that the Jahqoi website is now better structured, and makes navigation around the site better and easier. The layout probably helps visitors get to the items they are looking for more efficiently. Also, the information available is more detailed, which makes for a more complete shopping experience. I believe this revamp will definitely boost Jahqoi’s popularity with full figured women, worldwide.

Let me not forget to mention that along with this excellent website revamp, Jahqoi have knocked quite a bit off the price of many items! So what better time can there be to visit Jahqoi and see what they offer?

Step into Spring with Torrid

Spring and summer fashion styles and trends are slowly popping around everything. In the shops, in magazines, online… one can already dream about, and even almost feel, the spring and summer air. The upcoming warm seasons are going to be about color, and I mean vibrant color! I can also see a lot of vintage touches here and there.

Besides spring and summer clothing collections being put out to the crowds, let’s not forget about our feet and toes! Footwear collections are also starting to be released, which are also dominated by a new trend: color and comfort. Casual footwear looks to be dominated by vibrant colors and daring patterns, always coming in an ever comfy round toe flat style. Great for walking around on the boardwalk, or on the beach. Colors for footwear styles, that are great for those summer nights out, are definitely not missing!

Torrid have this week in fact released their spring footwear collection, which is impressive and is worth a look. The great prices we’re used to at Torrid, still apply for their footwear collection, and the choice available is a pretty wide one. It’s also good to remember that all of the shoes and boots Torrid carries are made to fit a wider foot and calf!

Among their new styles here are some of my favorites:

  1. Blue and White Stripe Miss Marple Canvas Platform Heel: so incredible cute and yet sexy! I can picture these on a pair of cropped jeans.
  2. Hot Pink Patent Sasha Pointed Toe Heel: sexy and daring!
  3. Black And White Zebra Rhonda Square Toe Ballet Flat: comfort is key.
  4. Brown Ginger Canvas Open Toe Wedge Heel: great for those hot days at the office.

Shoes so cute, you’ll blush! Visit Torrid to take a look at the fresh new styles of footwear they have added.
