I want to apologize for the lapse in posting. I got sick on Monday and have been out of it until today. I had been having stomach problems for the past few weeks and I just chalked it up to being lactose intolerant. But on Tuesday, things got worse with severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. I knew then it was something more than just lactose intolerance. After spending a few hours in the ER and an ultrasound, I learned that I have gallstones which where causing my symptoms. The doctor advised me that I would have change my eating and adopt a low fat diet avoid further painful episodes. So no more fried and fatty foods which much to my dismay, has been the majority of my diet. It’s one thing to look good on the outside but it’s another to take shitty care of yourself inside. I’m not gonna lie, eliminating a lot of foods that I love has been downright frustrating, but it’s a must. I’ll still enjoy a french fry or naughty desert once in a while but just not every other day.
On a happier note, I feel better and what way to show that by wearing a great dress! When I was contacted by IGIGI to review one of their dresses, I nearly did a somersault! I’ve been a huge fan of IGIGI for a while now, so this was an awesome opportunity. I picked the Isolde Belted Dress in Parisian Green because I wanted something different from the dresses that I normally wear. IGIGI doesn’t shy away from the full figure, they embrace it. The material is not flimsy or thin. It’s well constructed and contours to your body but not constricting. The shape of the dress definitely holds up during the day. I could easily move around due the stretch in the dress. The dolman sleeves don’t swallow up the dress like some dolman sleeve dresses do. I didn’t feel like I had bat wings or extra material under my arms. I like showing off my shape so this might be a little too fitted for some, but go up a size if you want a looser fit. You will still look fabulous!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Dress: IGIGI (gifted)
Belt: Eloquii (a belt comes w/the dress, but I decided to wear this one)
