I have a ball coming up in October and two very fancy Christmas parties and I really need a dress that says classy. I am IN LOVE with this dress from IGIGI ..called the Monika and hope to find it in a local Toronto store soon. I think it's going to look amazing with my blond hair stacked up high in a braided ballet bun....one of the women who reviewed the dress on the IGIGI website said it was so comfortable she didn't need to wear spanx! I think I'm sold!!!
