Review & $100 Giveaway | IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel

Thursday, February 24, 2011

*** CONTA.

I've been eyeing the IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel brand since I started SKORCH Magazine in 2006, but as a admittadly SUPER frugal shopper, I never put down the dollars on the beautiful and classic pieces the brand delivers. But, as one of the luckiest girls in the world, I was contacted by IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel to see if I would like to try an outfit and review it for them. Of course I said yes, but only if I was able to offer a $100 Gift Certificiate to one lucky reader so they could try it out too (if I loved the piece)! Lucky us, they said yes (they normally only do $50 giveaways).

All in all, my review is this outfit is the BEST quality item hanging in my closet, and she hangs in her very own IGIGI garment bag! LOL - that's new for my closet - damn I'm really too cheap, like I've said before, why do I have ZERO problem shelling out easy $400 for a handbag, but I scoff at anything north of $40 for clothing? Makes NO sense I tell you! 

Well my frugal friends, I 100% endorse the pricing at Igigi, it's worth it - you're worth it. It's easy to say "what the.....", but honestly, the product is made in the USA, made from the most amazing fabric, and true perfection on a curvy body. Fit is everything, and being a lover of all things structured, when I picked this blazer and pencil skirt, I couldn't wait to try it on, and we have a winner!

Ok, my top review marks:
Fit - Perfect. Blazer is 22/24 and pencil skirt is 26/28. Right on, and the fabric stretches, so not only is the super structured blazer fitted, but it MOVES with you! love I am!
Fabric - Super thick and perfect amount of stretch - even though it doesn't look like it does.
Quality - 100%, everything is lined twice and THICK, the items weigh a LOT on the hanger, that was the first thing I noticed.
