Review: Igigi’s Bohemian Rhapsody Collection

August 1, 2014

Last weekend my sisters and my soon-to-be sister headed up the mountains in North Carolina for a day-long getaway. It was one of those rare, perfect summer days where it was warm but not humid, and we spent it visiting the little town where I went to college and driving briefly along the Blue Ridge Parkway. I wore Igigi‘s Kaia Halter maxi dress in Cobalt Cachemire, which was perfectly light and airy. I had already worn this dress to work earlier in the week with a jean jacket and received 2 compliments from strangers I passed, and I received another while walking around Boone. It’s definitely an eye-catching dress, and I always think a dress is pretty special when even strangers will stop you to tell you how much they like it.


The dress has a waist band with some elastic within the fabric. The teal accents actually do not gather the waist band tighter, so they are there only for the look of the design. I love how the top can be worn without being tied/bowed.


As you’ll notice in the pictures above and below, the hem of the dress is intentionally uneven. The dress is cut in curves, and I’ve had a few maxis with slits, but not one like this. It took a day of wearing it to get used to the feeling of the hem against my legs. When you walk, the dress moves and flows around you. It’s quite pretty, and it made me think of a quote from Project Runway that I heard the other day: “My girl is into dramatic daywear” – this is definitely that!



There are quite a few other looks from Igigi’s collection that I love, especially the Emma Maxi Shirt Dress and the Eden Pant – even better, their sizes range up to a 30/32. Check out their Bohemian Rhapsody lookbook here to see the designs. You can also check out my instagram for some pictures of me and my sisters.

What piece from the Bohemian Rhapsody collection is your favorite? 

*This dress was gifted to me for the purpose of a review. I have expressed my true opinions of and experience with the dress.

    You look “nicely supported” in these photos. I have always shied away from unusual necklines because of needing to wear a good bra. Are you wearing a strapless one, and do you have a brand or two that you have had good luck with? Thanks!

    So, You were in my “neck of the woods?” I am from Avery county and grew up in Crossnore where my house is on top of a hill looking straight at the Old Grandfather. Did you go to Appalachian or Lees McRae? Well you look fabulous in the dress! You are so pretty in all your choices. I bet you stood out up there because we as a whole just don’t really dress up in a dress. We usually wear jeans or pants, something comfortable. Nobody really likes to “stick out” or draw attention to themselves. Of course there are a few “cosmopolitans” in the mountains who like to be stylish. Young girls love to wear the trendy stuff and of course they have those cute little figures. I haven’t really lived there in a while but I go home several times a year and it is about the same with folks I know. People have even quit wearing dresses to church. Well, they do that everywhere. Pants have become the style of acceptance everywhere. Some even go in shorts or jeans and they look like they are going to a pig pickin’ instead of going to church to worship.

    Love this dress! As a curvy girl, I have always shied away from prints, but this inspires me. You look fantastic!

    I love that fabric. Funny I just bought that same color and pattern in a poncho top! Looks just as nice in a dress. Classic. You rock!

    I love how this dress looks on you! And the fabric looks great as well. I’d never buy it for myself though because I hate having to wear a strapless bra :(. Just haven’t found any that fits right.

    Greetings from LA

    I hope you know that you ARE beautiful and sexy. And I mean this as a true compliment, nothing untoward intended. I am sure that I am not the only one to say so. I’d be very proud to have you on my arm any day. Respect and love and I hope that my comments may give you strength any time you need it.

    From a Canadian admirer 💓
