This Bernie Dexter dress never fails to make me smile! I've worn it on my blog before (see here and here), but this might be one of my favorite ways I've styled it. When I received this awesome jukebox brooch from Erstwilder, I knew it'd be a perfect fit with this diner-worthy outfit. Though I've admired Erswilder's brooches for a long time, this jukebox was my first. Now I'm hooked on these quirky, high-quality resin brooches and I've started my own small collection!
Since there's still lots of snow on the ground, I thought it would be fun to visit a diner that's housed entirely indoors! The Strong National Museum of Play is a wonderful museum (if you ever visit Rochester, you should definitely plan to stop there), and the Skyliner Diner is housed in its food court. I remember eating there years ago, and thought it'd be a fitting location for these photos. It has since been taken over by a local restaurant chain, so some of its retro charm has been replaced by cheaper, modern alternatives, but it was still a fun place to visit (and enjoy a root beer float). I brought along my friend Henry to take some cute shots together. Henry is one of my favorite people, and it's so nice to have a friend who is willing to take silly outfit photos with me. Oh, and for those of you who asked last time: he does in fact set his hair at night to get those beautiful waves! He says he may put up a YouTube tutorial for it at some point. :)
