#spon @Ascending1 wants YOU to Fall in Love with @IGIGI with a $75 Holiday Shopping Spree! {#Giveaway} #Fashion

#Sponsored - Prizes are being sponsored by:

IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel Logo

By now it's no surprise just how much I love IGIGI by Yuliya as I have been wearing their Fashion quite a bit and sharing my pictures with you from events that I have been proudly wearing clothing by IGIGI Style. From dresses to separates to career and outwear and pretty much everything in between, there is literally something for everyone at IGIGI.

IGIGI clothes are cut with Curvy Women in mind, and are not only figure flattering, but always on trend! No more 'Moo-Moo's' or tunics ladies!  IGIGI clothes are not about HIDING your figure, they are all about ENHANCING it and showing it off!

I am in love with their Fall Collection and have worn quite a few pieces from this collection to various events and have felt confident and received tons of compliments. Here are some photos of me wearing pieces from IGIGI's Fall Collection (others are not in the fall collection but I am providing direct links to all pieces featured):

Which item from the Fall Collection is your personal fave? (Commenting here with a link to your favorite piece in the Fall Collection will get you extra credit entries in the giveaway! Woot! Woot!)

My Take:

I only have one problem with IGIGI, I like EVERYTHING! Definitely a good problem to have right? Usually us 'curvies' have trouble finding clothes that not just fit but actually flatter, with IGIGI I can tell you I haven't found an outfit I don't like. I'm a huge fan of separates because of their versatility, but with IGIGI I have actually been wearing more dresses and skirts which I used to shy away from until now! I feel more confident in IGIGI and find myself reaching for them each and every time I go into my closet. They are definitely helping me win the battle of the age old closet dilemma of 'not having anything to wear'!




Sale ends 11/22 at 12 pm PST

FREE GROUND SHIPPING on all Continental U.S. orders of $150 or more and 50% off on ALL International Orders! Offer Ends 12/31

Why do you Love @IGIGI? Want to see why I do? + Sharing your story could net you some shopping $ #Fashion

I am a Latina with curves, and I'm super proud of them. Even at my 'smallest' weight number on the scale, my curves are still there and I love them. I'm very ahem 'blessed' on top, I have a small waist in proportion to the rest of me and great hips, I'm a true 'hourglass', normally that makes shopping for things like jeans and pantsuits difficult for me. A pantsuit for me is usually no fun to shop for, they come together but invariably I end up needing one size for the pants, and a different size for the jacket. Again a small waist and ample bottom also makes shopping for jeans pure torture. So when I find a brand that makes styles with my body type in mind, it's hard for me to refrain myself from shopping there all day long and buying everything up!

But let's face it, we have all reached a point where we are no longer buying something just because 'it fits'. That's just not enough anymore. After the roller-coaster year I had last year I am slowly but surely purging my closet of things that merely fit. If I don't LOVE something, it shouldn't be taking up valuable space.

My working environments pre-blogging and social media consulting, were all super corporate, so I'd stock up on classic suits and allow the accessories to do the talking in terms of trends and color. But now I'm slowly veering toward adding color to the clothes not just the accessories and experimenting with more dresses. And for me IGIGI has helped me make these transitions much more easily and effortlessly than I ever expected.

And I have put the fashions I have tried from them through their paces and everything wears well. I have reviewed some amazing styles from them in the past, the polyvore board I created putting together a great evening style feauturing one of IGIGI's most iconic dresses (the Ambrosia Dress) and their Hanna Coat still gets a ton of traffic (you can check that one out HERE) and I also mentioned the suit I am sharing with you today during my Getting Gorgeous recap coverage from New York City.

Now I know I just said I am trying to veer from all black, and I AM, I'm actually doing really well with it, but now that I'm out of a hospital bed and slowly getting back into my routines again I've lost so much weight that my favorite suits were all too big, and some just weren't really worth getting altered at this point. And I strongly want to start over in so many ways. The wonderful folks at IGIGI sent me a Black Suit (in a style called "Monroe") and a gorgeous Tunic Top in the color Scarlet (in a style called "Luella").

Here are some pictures of me wearing the suit and the top:

This suit is comfortable and seasonless and the bright pop of scarlet from the top really helps pull it together!

I definitely love this suit, and am glad I went bright with the top!

Here I am again on the far left, this time my Wilsons Leather Animal Print trench is on top of the Monroe Pant Suit by IGIGI. This suit is super comfortable and super versatile too!

My Take:

IGIGI is the perfect compliment to my curves and my wardrobe! From casual to dressy they offer a wide variety of sizes and styles and their clothes are cut with 'real women's curves' in mind!
