Those of us who attended Weetacon this year were asked if we’d like to snag ourselves some Igigi outfits and then do little writeups of them. Of course, remembering how well that worked out for us last time, I was on board! I chose the Cosenza dress, with its asymmetrical neckline and its sparkly business.
(As an aside, I have to say that as I was packing for Weetacon, I discovered that our house has mildew and that most if not all of my dresses need to be drycleaned before I can wear them again. So I was grateful to know that at least I had something to wear to the party!)
My first reaction when I put on the dress is that it’s pretty and flattering… and kind of a fat-girl dress. Way more sophisticated than sequins and appliques, but still the details that are meant to draw the eye away from Places of Fat and say WOO! LOOK OVER HERE AT THE SPARKLY BUSINESS! I suspect that my real criticism is that it’s not low cut enough, because normally I prefer WOO! LOOK OVER HERE AT MY BOOBS! But I put on the dress and looked hot and had a great time.
I stole my friend Melinda’s camera and took pictures of myself on the night, but they’re all close ups of me kissing or hugging or smothering or kissing various people (some of whom are also wearing Igigi clothes), or just like HERE IS MY EYE or JENFUUUU or WENDY MCCLURE IS PRETTY. But I also danced and drank in the dress, and it was all magical.
But I didn’t get a picture of the dress. So for this post you’re stuck with this picture that I just took with total out-of-the-shower hair, after-a-facial face, and a camera self-timer. Which means it’s also blurry. Yay?
If you’re interested in picking up anything from Igigi, which sells clothes in sizes 12-32, there is a 20% discount code that will work until the end of March: WEETACON. Their clothes are well designed and well made and not cheap, so 20% is a good deal!
I might actually cave and buy the Forget Me Knot dress in blue.
