The V Label Maida dress is one of my favourites. It’s ironic because when I first received it, I was mad with anger. Let me give you a bit of a background on our turbulent history…
It was about 10:00am on a Saturday morning when my dress first arrived. Beaming with excitement, I tore open the plastic bag wrapping and lo and behold:
Issue 1: I was blinded by the golden shimmer; and
Issue 2: I was appalled by the size. You see the dress fit like a 12 except I’d ordered a 6.
As I tipped over the edge about to explode in a hissy fit, my Mum offered her sewing machine to take in the gaping sides. More often that not, I’m melodramatic, but what do you expect when there’s a wedding in 2 hours and your only option is two times your size?
Fast forward to the following Summer and I’ve worn the V Label Maida three times and I’m still receiving compliments. Because of her golden shimmer and the endless compliments, I call her “The Maidas touch”. Below are the benefits of The Maidas Touch:
Benefit 1: I never need more than dainty earrings and an expensive bracelet to accessorize her, she does all the work.
Benefit 2: She’s so comfortable it’s surreal!
Benefit 3: The decent length is fit for a wedding with my Dad but mini lining is the ultimate flirt for a wedding with the MR.

Ps: The Maidas touch also looks fantastic with coloured shoes.

PPPs: I did my make-up myself (I’m improving… trust me), but Wura highlighted which was kinda cool. I might be highlighting some more going forward. LOL
