Another day, another novelty print dress... and this one's a beaut! My Bernie Dexter dresses are among my most treasured and unique pieces, and when I saw this 50's kitchen print dress from Unique Vintage, I knew I had to add it to my collection. One thing's for sure: this print did not disappoint! It's even better in person than I had hoped – a retro-loving gal's dream! Because it's such a special and busy print, my styling was quite minimal, but I'll definitely wear a red or yellow cardigan with this in the future – or you could easily layer a sweater or a skirt over it to create separates!
This "Kelly" style dress is a relatively new one, and I was a bit unsure about it at first; I wasn't a fan of the zipper front, but then I realized that it would be the perfect solution to button gaping for well-endowed girls like myself. Because of the way it's designed, there's a bit more room in the bust than in a lot of other Bernie dresses and I felt more covered while wearing it (I love the "Paris" style, but it shows too much cleavage to be appropriate for some situations). If I worked in a more traditional office environment, I'd feel totally comfortable wearing it to work, which is a definite plus. (We'll just pretend that I don't work from home and wear my pajamas most of the time...)
