Thank you all for the birthday wishes last week! I've been so busy with work that I didn't really get to celebrate, but at least I celebrated with a new dress on my birthday!
There's a dress I've been holding on off on wearing until it was lilac time again, and here it is! The Bernie Dexter Paris Dress is a vintage-inspired dress, and this one has lilacs on it! It's perfect since the lilacs bloomed early this year - just in time for my birthday!
One of my favorite things about this dress is the 1950's style shelf bust. It's super comfortable and sits perfectly if you're not big-busted. I know that some girls have a problem getting this dress to fit right, but for me, this is the best Bernie Dexter dress style, fit-wise. Some of the others have a bit too much room for my shape.
Thank goodness it's finally warm again so I can color coordinate my Swedish Hasbeens with my dress. I swear, they are the cutest summer shoes around.
And of course I've already found something I want to get myself for my birthday.
Trashy Diva has a great new 1940's shirtwaist-style dress out in a fun rooster novelty print. It's the Sweetie Dress in "Ruffled Feathers." It looks super '40s and the roosters remind me of Portugal. I have to get me one soon!
