Cherry Blossoms




























 Dress - Bernie Dexter
Shoes - Target
Starfish Earrings and Compact Mirror - Vintage


This is my first ever Bernie Dexter dress and I am in love!

I have been wanting to feature this dress on the blog for a while now but with moving house and settling in I haven't had a lot of time. I was also quite excited to wear my pretty pink shoes with my Bernie Dexter dress! 

This dress  is perfect for summer, the fabric is quite a thick-rich type of cotton... But it is quite lightweight... If that make any sense? I guess I mean that the dress is of a very quality. I adore the unique picturesque fabric that Bernie features on her dresses and that influenced me to get this dress first - I do hope to own more of her beautiful dresses in the future.

I would also wear it in winter with back-seam or wool stockings, a cardigan and a coat! We are now into our Australian winter so I have been getting into my warm clothes which I am happy about, I really do not enjoy summer at all!

The dresses are so good that they look like a genuine vintage dress (without the worry of damaging it easily and knowing it will last a lifetime). There are so many amazing reproduction brands around and a Bernie Dexter dress should definitely be something in your wardrobe. It is a great investment... I find myself just staring at it (I did say it was love)!

My boyfriend and I took these photos around the neighbourhood, we live amongst bushland now and I want to explore a little bit, but I thought this would be a nice setting for such a pretty dress!

  4. I've never seen a Bernie Dexter dress that I don't absolutely love; I would have a whole wardrobe full of them if I could! It looks great with your pink shoes.
