I’m probably the only woman in the world who had never thought about their big day, until Pure Maiden came along.
This is true guys. You know how you may have girlfriends who talk about their big day knowing every last detail they would have? I don’t think I’ve ever been that type of girl, well, not until Pure Maiden came along.
About a year ago, I was contacted by Katrina -founder and designer of her brand Pure Maiden. She approached me with her brand’s vision and told me that she wanted to officially sort of launch her brand into the market and create awareness for it. You wouldn’t believe my surprise when she thought that I would be the perfect muse to bring her dress designs to life. Like, little old me? Me with the stretch marks on my arms and boobs, me? I was beyond surprised. I was definitely down for it! So after a few meetings & fittings, we were finally able to shoot and bring her designs to life. We had so much fun at her shoot and I am so excited to let you know that I’ll be sharing 3 Pure Maiden bridal dresses in this series.
Pure Maiden is about bringing edgier, more unique bridal designs to the forefront, and the first dress is the perfect manifestation of this. You may/may not have seen this dress over on my Instagram page (@fromcurveswithlove) because I wore it last weekend when I attended a cousin’s wedding. Yes guys, this dress caught a lot of attention. I received so many compliments on it that I was just so happy that I chose the right place and occasion to wear it to.
What I love most about this dress is the black lace overlay on the grey/silver/gun metal satin skirt. Something that makes it even more exciting is that even though this dress is actually made as a wedding dress, the design is versatile enough to be considered a bridesmaid dress, and can also pass for a wedding guest dress. I especially loved the length of the skirt at the back because it made me feel all regal having to pull/carry it behind me like a bride. What a way to make me feel special, eh?
