Review: IGIGI "Urban Jungle" Collection

Hi Lovies!

I was recently contacted by Igigi about reviewing one of their pieces from their "Urban Jungle" collection. I immediately fell in love with this collection, all the gorgeous animal prints as well as the bold and colorful prints that are all perfect for the Fall. Having already tried Igigi before during FFFWeek (see here and here) I was aware of the great quality and fit of their clothing. But It was still hard for me to decide on which piece I wanted. In the end I chose the "Isla Dress", obviously for the gorgeous leopard print but as well as it being a transitional piece. I could totally see myself wearing this during the colder days with a blazer and boots. I love the feminine draped ruffle along the neckline and the classic A-line design. It's definitely a feminine and flirty dress, which made me want to twirl around in it (which I actually did lol). Igigi's clothing is very generous, so I would definitely check their size chart before ordering anything. I got this dress in a 14/16 and it fit me perfect (I'm normally a 18/20).

Hi Lovies,

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Isabel Toledo for Lane Bryant Fall Preview at the 34th Street Flagship Store. I was super excited to actually meet the Toledos, who are such nice and charming people. They mingled with the guests, took pictures and gave interviews. It was a treat to finally see the new pieces in person, which were all gorgeous and stunning. Everything was made with such quality and so lady-like. They had actual models wearing some of the pieces which was great to be able to see how they looked on. The guests were treated to drinks, food and music as well as an awesome photo booth that printed live photos from your instagram feed using the hashtag #LBTOLEDO. It was also hosted by the lovely Chante from Everything Curvy and Chic, who looked lovely dressed in all LB.

Casual Sunday: Denim and Tribal Print

Hi Lovies!

Sundays for me are usually very casual unless I have an event to go to. Otherwise I just like to feel relaxed and wear something that's literally "easy like Sunday morning". Now I am totally dress or skirt girl on a regular basis even throughout the cold months but I have found myself very fond of the harem/jogger trend. At first I was intimidated by them, because like a lot of women, I don't like the way my bum looks in pants lol. Since I've been trying to be more daring with my fashion, I decided to give them a try, and I have to say I'm obsessed now with about 8 pairs in my wardrobe. One of my favs are these Tribal Print ones from Forever 21. I love that they aren't overly baggy at the top and more fitted around the leg as well as having pockets which is always a plus.

Midi in the Park

Hi Lovies!

Back in August Eloquii contacted me about sending me special gift of any item from their website. I was beyond excited about this especially having been to their FFFweek event back in June and got a preview of their upcoming fashions (see post here). The hardest part was picking out which piece I wanted since there were so many great things to choose from. I'm normally not a huge fan of midi skirts because I like to show a little more leg but when they came out with the Studio Midi Skirt in Citron, I have to say I was instantly a fan. My mind was buzzing with different outfit combos that I could create with it! As much as I loved the yellow version, I decided to go with the green color because I knew it could easily be transition it into my Fall wardrobe.

Lane Bryant and Sophie Theallet Plus Size Lingerie Collaboration

Hey Lovies,

Yesterday I had a nice surprise in my inbox, it was the Lane Bryant and Sophie Theallet Plus Size Lingerie Collaboration Lookbook! Can we say classy, sexy, and sultry?! Lane Bryant is really on a great streak with all these designer collabs, especially the recently anticipated collab with Lela Rose. Sophie Theallet is a french designer who has worked with fashion icon Jean Paul Gautier and Azzedine Ala├»a. So this lingerie collection is nothing short of amazing! I just adore the pretty floral print along with delicate lace and silk make this lingerie just so elegant. The collection will range from size 14-28 and will be available at Lane Bryant next month.

FFFWeek 2014: Day 5 "Eloquii Private Trunk Sale Event"

Hi Lovies!

Day 5 of FFFWeek continues with event #2, the Eloquii Private Trunk Sale Event. After the Modamix event me and some of my blogger boos decided to walk over to the event to kill some time. We arrived at the attractive London Hotel where the event was taking place in the penthouse suite. The room was amazing, and the view from there was breath-taking. On the main floor they had refreshments, nibbles as well as a manicure station and a tarot card reader. They also had a super fun animated photo booth by Phhhoto which was the bees knees! Eloquii also had a few racks of clothing that are currently on the website for the guest to peruse, check out and purchase with a 20% discount. Upstairs they had 2 rooms with pieces that are coming soon to the website to preview and try on if you liked. If you been following Eloquii you know they've come back with a vengeance and it hasn't stopped. All the new things are amazing, gorgeous and so on trend.It was an awesome event and had a great time. I couldn't stay too long because me and a few other bloggers had to shoot over to the Indie show but I was able to get a few shots of the event.
