OOTD Photoshoot Fab: “The IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel Denise Dress”

988610_10153009454555389_18652697_nA few weeks ago while in Baltimore, I had the distinct privilege of shooting with famed photographer Doug Swaim of Never Forgotten Photography. We shot in the Harbor at a beautiful waterfall that we found right near my hotel. I wore the new IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel Denise Dress ($170) by model turned designer Denise Bidot. Denise has been a longtime model for the IGIGI company and decided to tap into the designing field for them. Before I even knew that she was the name behind this creation, I was already in love with the dress. I had a sneak peek some time ago and for one, loved the black and white trend, then two, the lace sleeves. The dress is made of a poly/elastane/viscose blend and I would suggest going up a size in it. The fit is very body conscious but as long as you have on your proper bodyshaper underneath, you’ll be ok. Well Doug just sent me a few of the final pics and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. This is photoshoot ready dress for sure. So support the curvy community and get your pick in this dress in a variety of colors including plum and jade before it’s a sell-out.
