Daisy Meadow

Bernie Dexter Paris Dress in Daisy Print

Since today is St. Partick's Day, I figured this would be the best time to debut this gorgeous dress!  Bernie Dexter is the queen of mid-century style and I've praised her designs (especially her Paris dress) for years.  Unique Vintage always has the best selection of her products and they seem to get them before anyone else.  This is important information because you know you want to be the first one with the pretty dress!

I have about seven or eight of these Paris dresses, but I can tell you that this one is different.  The fabric is nice and heavy but smooth and comfortable.  As someone who is constantly between sizes, I tend to size up in this style for the bust.  I'm glad I did because this dress fits like a glove!  The gathered bust also has elastic at the top so it can accommodate a range of sizes.  The skirt is super full (definitely twirl-worthy) and has side pockets.  It's the perfect statement piece for this fun holiday and the spring season ahead!

This weekend is suprisingly work-free so I'm trying to figure out something fun to do with the family.  I've been dying to go to the San Diego Wild Animal Park because Bianca loves all the animals.  I could go to the Los Angeles or Santa Barbara Zoo, but I'm strongly against keeping wild animals in captivity and I want to teach Bianca to respect them.  San Diego is a good 2-4 hours away (depending on traffic) so it's definitely a trip!  I don't know if we'll be able to make it this weekend, but fingers crossed we can.  I just can't wait to see Bianca's face when she sees an elephant in real life!

  2. This dress is so gorgeous! What a PERFECT St Patrick's day dress (or any day, really!) One day I want to own a Bernie Dexter frock, but I'm waiting to lose some baby weight first.

    Happy St Patrick's day!

  4. Oooh I didn't know the bust was slightly elasticated! That's definitely going to push me to buy a Paris dress now..
