Luscious Rose

Bernie Dexter Scallop Dress in Luscious Rose print 002

Have you ever felt like you've packed too many fun things in a weekend?  Well, it's only Sunday morning and I already feel like I'm spent.  Friday night my sister in law and I attended the Pinup Girl Clothing Prom.  It was so much fun!  My brother never took his now wife to prom so I thought it would be fun for the two of us to go together.  We got all dolled up, took prom pictures, saw a Masuimi Max burlesque show, enjoyed an Ivy Levan performance, and had some late night Argentine empenadas.  My feet are still numb from shoving my hooves into 6 inch platform heels but it was completely worth it.

Yesterday we took Bianca to her baby BFF's first birthday party.  It was great to be around friends and family for the day.  It also has me thinking about Bianca's party (in January).  I didn't realize how much work even a smaller party will be for her until I saw our friends hosting their daughter's special day.  I have no idea what the plan is, but I know I need a lot of time to get everything together.  I'm thinking maybe a Hello Kitty theme?

How gorgeous is this dress?  This was another lovely gift from Bernie.  I don't usually wear spaghetti or strapless dresses because I can't currently find a strapless bra in my size (so annoying).  I decided to wear my pre baby too small strapless bra and a bandeau on top to achieve this look.  When there's a will there's a way!

This is the lake Bianca and I walk around when it's not insanely hot.  I've been doing my best to get walking a little more because I really want to shed the rest of the baby weight.  I think it might be working because I'm currently only six pounds away from my goal!  If I happen to lose more that would be amazing but I really want to focus on getting back to normalcy.  I'm giving myself until the end of summer.  Now that I've put it out on the internet I have to keep to it, right?

  1. You look so beautiful! Another great Bernie dress. I feel your pain with the strapless bra thing! I can't wear one. (When I wear spaghetti strap dresses I wear a bra with clear straps.)

  6. Strapless bras are the devil!! This dress is beautiful - the neckline is divine. Love your cute bun - you look stunning x

  7. Gorgeous!! Your hair looks so cute in a big bun like that, like Tinker Bell :) I'm sure Bianca's first birthday bash will be fabulous, but luckily there's still many months until then!

  8. Strapless bras do indeed suck. I have an easier time finding ones that fit in UK shops online. They actually carry smaller band sizes with bigger cup sizes which is what a lot of us need but stores never seem to have.

    Anyway, this dress was worth the strapless bra issue because it's gorgeous. The print is so pretty and I love the neckline. You look wonderful, as usual!

  16. Gorgeous dress, I would just love to add this to my collection. The print is beautiful and I adore the neckline. Also, a real stand out from this post is your hairstyle. I think it looks incredible like this and you should do it more often...How exciting you are thinking of a party for Bianca next year.

  17. This dress is so amazing! I didn't realize that the bodice and hem were scalloped until I saw the second picture. Its such a lovely detail and makes me love the dress even more! The PUG Prom sounded really cool, I'm glad you had fun!

  20. You and Bianca look wonderful! I love the little accessory in your hair too! Hello Kitty themed parties are cute. I don't know though. . .I didn't have parties for my sons when they turned one since I figured they wouldn't remember it anyway >.<
