  2. Everyone, stop what you’re doing and go look at the Monif C. collection. Depending on your style, you will either love it or hate it. In either case, it’s definitely worth viewing.

    I personally think I need all of it….except the jumpsuits.

  3. i don’t think i’ve ranted about this yet on this site, so: beware igigi! their clothes are ok, but i’ve had the most frustrating and ridiculous experience with their customer service. it started when they sent me someone else’s order and then acted like they were the ones being put upon when asked them to send me what i’d ordered. which they still haven’t done, and i don’t expect them to. and i practically had to beg (several calls and emails) to get a prepaid return label.

    to sum up: igigi sucks.

  4. Chiken, I’ve had the exact same experience. They sent me the wrong dress, then wanted ME to pay to return it, AND pay shipping out. They really are awful.

  5. Oh, and there will be a FULL review of Monif’s new collection, coming up while I’m on vacation.

  6. OMG! I just had IGIGI claim I ordered two of a certain dress. I ordered one. I was shipped one. They are charging me for two. After reading other people’s feedback I’m really worried I won’t get my money back for something I didn’t order and didn’t receive.
