OOTD: The IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel ‘Cassandra Infinity Gown’
On a recent photoshoot that I did for my 2-Year Blogiversary, I wore this beautiful gown from award winning plus-size designer, IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel. I gave a teaser in a previous post that I had received a gown from the latest “Spring With A Breath of Fresh Air Collection” to review. I wanted a classic Hollywood look with this piece. It is trendy all the while being classy. It is designed in the colorblock theme of black and ivory and can be worn several different ways including strapless, one-shoulder or with both sleeves. From the moment it arrived I felt like a red-carpet starlet. IGIGI goes the extra mile to ship your packages already on the hanger in an oversized box so that when you open your package, it’s wrinkle free and ready for wear. Once I stepped on set all eyes were on me. But then again whenever I wear IGIGI clothing, it stands out in the crowd. (Even though I wore this specifically for a photoshoot, this gown is perfect for a semi-formal affair, an evening wedding or a Broadway play or theatre show). The gown comes with an aurora beaded belt that snaps in the back for a nice secure fit. Since the belt had beading on it I wanted to wear jewelry to compliment that. My jewelry has sort of a black and gold tone to it to compliment the belt. To coincide with the colorblock theme I went for the newly released Jessica Simpson Platform Sandals.
