Happy Valley!

OK, despite STILL being fat, I've decided to show off my new Bernie Dexter dress.   And despite thinking I would never wear it without a bolero, I've actually gone sleeveless!   Shock!

(Doing the Flamingo)
Even tho they aren't authentic Vintage, this is my sixth Bernie Dexter dress. The fit is perfect, the styles are flattering...I just love them. Bernie picks out the most amazing Landscape patterns for her fabric. I recently purchased the Koi fish print dress and hopefully I'll get to pull that one out soon too.


Dress: Bernie Dexter.
Unique Vintage currently have a sale on some Bernie Dexter lines.
Shoes: K-mart
Hair Flower: Dynamite-darlin, eBay

    1. I didnt have the dollars either but Unique had 20% off their already cheapest Bernies prices. They gave a sale on some more at $98. Luckily I dont wany any of those......except the bird print one!

    2. The bird one is lovely, I've liked that one for a while. I nabbed mine from them at the 15% coupon they ran just before the new year - kicked myself a little when the 20% came out, but the dress is certainly worth it!

  4. Gorgeous dress! You (and a few other bloggers) have inspired me to start wearing more vintage-esque clothing and feminine silhouettes because really, these thighs do not look great in jeans.
    I feel you on the fat... I just made a few circle skirts on the lower end of my waist measurements, and they fit until I have a meal!

    1. All my clothes fit nicely first thing in the morning too! Maybe just not eat?! I stick with 50s style high waisted jeans now, modern jeans are gross.

  11. Thanx for liking my blog - like yours too! :) That nose pressed to the window-picture was one of my favorites too. Amazing she never showed her photos to anyone, but decided to work as a nanny for forty years instead...Anyway. The dress you're wearing is amazing! I still haven't dared checking out Bernie Dexter's dresses to closely. I'm a bit afraid I'll love (and NEED to buy) too many of them... ;) xo

  12. Major love for that dress - the print is amazing! Thanks for the heads-up about the Miss L Fire sale. Not much left in my size! Curses to being such an average 37 ;-P I'm resisting urges to buy though - And I DID get some shoes from somewhere else - I'll add you on FB and you can see them there before they go on the blog ;-D
