Bernie Dexter is a pinup model turned fashion designer. Much like most ladies who turn to reproduction vintage styles, she was looking for alternatives to wearing true vintage. She offers her wide range of styles in sizes XS-4X.
Like A Fox
A few of her newer styles (Kelly, Lauren, Nicole) have zip front features. This means you can wear a shirtwaist dress without worrying about button gaping. I'm not the bustiest person, but I've always had problems with wearing anything with a button front. Without a doubt, this is one of the biggest reasons why I keep buying these styles!
Bernie also offers holiday inspired prints. One of my favorite dresses is her Winter Wonderland Jubilee dress (seen above) and it's available in a few different styles. I just happen to own three... Oops! She also has a New Year's Eve print and has offered a 4th of July inspired print as well. I can't wait to see what she has in store for 2017!
Bernie's dresses are great for everyday wear. I wore them when Bianca was a newborn, I wear them to work, and they're even great for date night! While I choose to dry clean my Bernie dresses, I know many ladies who either hand wash or machine wash on delicate cycles, and hang dry their dresses without incident.
Nothing Like A Saturday Night
Inspired by dresses of the mid-century era, Bernie's classic styles give you that perfect pinup/rockabilly look for the modern woman. She also offers skirts, a line of denim, tops, matching men's clothing, and outerwear too. I'm dying to own her new Kitten jacket... It's seriously cute!
Mine This Time
Bernie's website always has the largest selection of her dresses, but you can also find exclusive styles at Unique Vintage. Her line can also be found at Pinup Girl Clothing, Retro Glam, That Shop, and if you're on a budget, you can find a select amount of styles for a discounted price on Zulily!
