This dress was a very lucky purchase. Bernie Dexter often has "last chance sales" on her website, and I ended up snagging this dress and another for about $45 each! I'd been eyeing this one for a while (I just love the bodice), and it just goes to show that it really does pay to keep an eye out and wait until something goes on sale. This dress isn't as full-skirted as most of my other Bernies, but it actually makes it a tad more versatile. I could still wear a shorter, less-full petticoat underneath if I wanted, but it's so much breezier for the summertime to go without one! This is also my only Bernie dress that I have to wear sans bra; the sizing is a little smaller on this than my other dresses, and actually, it's sort of nice to not have to wear one. As a well-endowed girl, I don't always get that chance!
I finally got out of the house for a little while this weekend and went to see a production of Hairspray with some friends. It was through the high school and college summer program at one of the local theater companies I work with, and they really did an excellent job with it. I knew a few people in the show and in the pit, and it's always encouraging to see so much young talent in this town. I've seen the show a couple of other times (I saw the national tour when it came here, and a local production when I was doing summer theatre in the Pennsylvania/New Jersey area), and it's always enjoyable, but I thought this cast was incredibly strong and I didn't stop smiling the entire show!
Have a swell Sunday!
