Being plus size oftentimes limits one's options when it comes to style and fashion, I'm glad there are lines out there like IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel who are dedicated to providing the plus size woman with dress options for day, night and special occasions. So when I was invited to attend a black tie event (lift: Detroit) I quickly thought of Igigi when it came to my dress. When I saw the Antoinette Gown in Lapis on igigi.com, I knew that this dress was meant for me! I could not wait to receive it and try it on, I was so anxious and a little nervous. I just wanted everything to be perfect for the event.
When I tried the dress it was perfection and when the day came for the black tie gala, my nervousness had turned into complete excitement as I couldn't wait to wear this dress!
I couldn't be happier with the way my final look turned out! Thanks to Sincere the HairGoddess for my makeup and Illustriousjewelry.com for my custom designed jewelry, the jewelry added the perfect touch of glam to my look. I honestly felt like a princess all night.
This dress was a dream-come-true!
