Open Book

Bernie Dexter Chelsea Dress in Book Print

I can't even tell you how long I've waited for this dress to make its way to my closet.  This Bernie Dexter dress is an oldie, but such a perfect piece.  I don't know for certain, but I feel like there was a very limited quantity of this dress.  Other than one or two Google images of Bernie wearing it, you can't find any customer pictures in this dress (except for Bristol, the queen of hunting unicorns).  Because of what seemed like an impossible chance, I put my energy towards finding one on the back burner.  Thankfully, a lovely Australian lady offered to sell me hers, brand new with tags in my exact size.  What are the chances?!  I can't thank her enough for thinking of me and sending me the epitome of a "unicorn dress"!

As a child, I was obsessed with reading books.  I had (and still have) a very vivid imagination so books were always my favorite place to spend my down time.  I was also obsessed with princess Belle, who shared my love for books and distaste for cocky men.  She's still very much my favorite princess and I'd like to think she would wear something like this... You know, if she were real.

I'm gearing myself up for what I'd like to call a lifestyle change.  Since before the holidays, I've been indulging in absolutely everything.  I could eat my weight in pizza and I'm starting to feel the effects.  While my metabolism is still fast, I don't feel good on the inside.  It's just one of those habits I need to cut completely, because I actually love making and eating healthy food.  So fingers crossed I get this healthy living thing back on track, because my next step will be much harder: exercising!

  2. This print is even better than I thought, and the dress looks amazing on you! I'm so happy you finally own it. I am personally waiting until after Valentine's Day to put an end to my indulgences (and boy, do I need to)... but hopefully you'll inspire me to keep at it <3

  3. Wow this dress is so cute! I love how you always have the best shoes to co-ordinate. I've been pretty good at staying healthy this year, but it's definitely the hardest to get stared especially the first few weeks!
