Read My Lips

Bernie Dexter Chelsea Dress in Lipstick Print on White

Since cutting my hair off last week I've had a hard time feeling comfortable in my own skin.  I know this sounds stupid but everything in my closet looks different now.  I guess I was kind of used to hiding behind my hair, which is not something I'd normally do.  I've always been a confident "lone wolf" kind of person, so the fact that I would even feel like less of myself without it is out of character.  But I'm determined to feel confident no matter what I look like, because that's exactly what confidence is.  I'm actually kind of excited to re-learn how to style myself to my liking.  And let me tell you, getting ready in the morning literally takes half the time now!

Since I've been a customer of Bernie's for years, I've come to realize what styles work for me and what don't.  The Chelsea dress is one of those styles that doesn't always work out, but this lipstick print was too cute to pass up!  The print is vibrant and the gold on the dress really shimmers.  It's a casual dress but the print really classes it up.  As always, Bernie's dresses are made from a breathable cotton, which is important for someone who lives in a constant heat.  While the straps aren't adjustable, they were the perfect length for me.  The skirt is incredibly full and has hidden side pockets.  While I normally take a size small in her dresses, I always need an extra small in the Chelsea cut.  If you're not super busty, I'd highly recommend sizing down in this dress.

Well, our house has been on the market for a little over a day and three people have already come by to see it.  It's definitely more popular than I was expecting, and I'm hoping this is a good sign to a quick sale!  We already have an amazing home in mind, so fingers crossed that everything works out like we want it to.

  1. I love how your haircut can easily look so 1920s -- you look like a pinup Phryne Fisher! Sadly, the Chelsea doesn't work very well on me either, but you are making me like that print more than before! <3
