It's a beautiful quiet morning. The snow has almost melted and I saw crocus peeking out! I'm getting all dolled up today to go to the local VFW hall and support our veterans at a St. Patty's day dance. I love wearing dresses! I'm a stay at home mother and we are on a very limited income so its hard to keep new dresses in the closet. This is why I enter many giveaways, it gives me a chance to own things I would never afford otherwise! I have been very lucky to win several giveaways. I have won dresses, shoes, jewelry and more from some of my favorite brands. I will review everything here and I'm hoping to not only show you what I love but introduce you to some new stylish items and brands!!
I was blessed to win a dress from Lady Mayra in a Facebook giveaway. Lady Mayra is a pinup company with a great variety of gorgeous dresses and skirts. I won my choice of any of their Elsa dresses. This was not an easy task because Elsa comes in 12 different color combos and I love them all!! Eventually I showed my husband and his favorite was the black floral.
I love it! It's so vibrant with fuschia, goldenrod, baby pink and celery green floral and vines dancing on it. I was careful to measure and got a size 3xl. It fits like a glove and I would suggest if you are large busted to go up one size, the material does not have stretch. The fit is lovely, flattering and it has a generous circle skirt! I'm wearing a Malco Modes Jennifer petticoat underneath and you could easily wear a much larger petticoat! Maximum skirt swirling potential. Some companies skimp on the skirts for their plus versions of dresses but not Lady Mayra. The very similar Lindy Bop Ophelia dress is beautiful but has a disappointing and rather unflattering a-line skirt on the plus size dress. I'm impressed!! The sweetheart neckline is flattering, it tapers in at the waist and the full circle skirt give the hourglass silhouette I love. The material is high quality cotton, soft, silky and sturdy with bright crisp print. I love the selection, variety of unique prints available and quality of their dresses for the price. Their customer service is friendly and shipping was fast from Thailand. Lady Mayra has a great selection of beautifully designed dresses and as a bonus they do regular giveaways on their Facebook page!! I highly recommend you give them a look!!!
