Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far. Sorry for not posting yesterday, I had a huge math test that I was totally not prepared for and spent my whole day (literally like 7 hours) cramming and frying my brain. Like my Twaffle always says, I am far too pretty to do math. Really though those of you who are good with numbers are also beautiful but incredibly lucky that you can rock the math skills, I just don’t have that part of the brain.
Since today I am back to my normal self I knew I wanted to put together an outfit of the day, and showcase the wonderful dress my friends at IGIGI sent me last month. This dress will be perfect work wear but since I am currently working from home and playing house, for real I’ve become quite domestic, this dress makes for the perfect retro housewife look. Once I put the look together I realized I was totally serving some Lucille Ball, Ricky I Wanna Be In The Show Realness and since Lucy is one of my style icons and favorite red heads I decided to play it up!

Doris 2-In-1 Plus Size Dress: IGIGI (Gifted)/Heart Corset Belt: Torrid/Magenta Heels: Torrid
Pearl Earrings: Gift From Nightrider/Pearl Necklace: Mom’s Jewelry Box
Come on what girl can resist a polk-a-dot? I know I can’t, they are seriously a weakness for me. When I first saw this dress on the site I was smitten, and when it arrived in the mail and I slipped this baby on I knew it was LOVE! Everything about this dress is perfection. It fits my body like a glove in a size 18/20 is a great length for a classy look and has some great features that make it ideal for the curvy curves. This dress feels rich and high quality (duh it’s IGIGI) and is actually really comfortable as well. It can appear like a top and a skirt with the A-line cut and separation of print under the breast and also camouflages a tummy which is an extra plus. The polk-a-dot trim on the cuffs is really flexible and can actually fold down for a complete black sleeve which is wonderful and the 3/4 sleeves are perfect for the office or for strutting around the house feeling retro glam like i did today. Overall this dress is an A++++ and I highly recommend it to my plus girls no matter what walk of life you live. Would I steer you wrong?
This dress came with a sash that is a different black and white print than the polk-a-dots which I definitely find interesting and cute but as you know I am not really into sashes. I opted to highlight my waist in this dress with a heart shaped Torrid corset belt from seasons ago to play up the fun of the look and give it a little youthful feeling. I also chose to wear my magenta suede heels also from Torrid to give the look a pop of color, and to pull in my pink lips. I added a pearl necklace and earrings to pay homage to the pinup nature of the look as well. There is no makeup breakdown today but the pink lips, heavy cat eye liner and my pompadour completed the look for me.
What do you think about the Doris 2-In-1 Dress from IGIGI and they way I styled it? Who is one of your style icons?
