Elephant in the room

bernie dexter elephant dress

Happy Monday, and Happy Leap Day! I hope your week is off to a good start so far. I'm currently fighting off a cold (I may be losing the battle by the time this post is published), which is sort of poor timing, considering we're now in tech week (i.e., the somewhat-stressful time when all of the elements come together) for the children's theatre show I'm in. We open on Saturday, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get enough rest in so that I can feel better by the weekend. Because the show I'm in is called Elephant and Piggie's "We Are In A Play!", I thought it was only fitting to post my photos in this Bernie Dexter elephantine find.

Since I missed out on this dress when it was readily available, I was on the hunt for this dress for quite some time (I blame Ashley, as always). The eBay gods have been kind to me, since I was lucky enough to find this dress in my size and for a good price. I love it even more than I thought I would! I'm partial to Bernie's "Paris" style, but I really love the way this "Sugardoll" cut fits me. It's a bit more forgiving in the bust than some other Bernie Dexter dresses, and I think it flatters my figure quite nicely. Sadly, I don't think it's being made anymore (it was called the "I'm All Cheers" dress on ModCloth), but I was fortunate enough to track down this print and the yellow cherries print in the same style. Plus, this dress even came with a matching fabric belt, which is always an exciting find for both retro reproduction and true vintage.

We were blessed with a couple of beautiful days recently (aka why I'm not wearing so much as a cardigan in these photos), but I think it's about to get cold again. Our winter hasn't been awful this year, but I've still got spring fever! Is it already feeling springy where you are?
