An Absolute Sweetheart

Bernie Dexter The Absolute Sweetheart Swing Dress Doily Print

I've been dying to announce this on the blog (I semi-announced it on Instagram) and today is the big day to do it: I've been chosen by Bernie Dexter to model some dresses for her website!  She so graciously sent me four gorgeous dresses and I've been around town taking pictures for her.  As I'm sure you already know, Bernie is such an inspiration for me.  She's beautiful on the inside and out and she designs my dream dresses.  I've had so much fun playing dress up and I get completely giddy when I see my images on her site.  I've already photographed two of her dresses which you can see on her website now.  I'll also be using them for outfit posts too.  This is the first of many Bernie themed posts :)

Petticoat- Sidecca
Shoes- c/o Deb Shops
Bracelet- Betsey Johnson (similar)
Headband- Forever 21

I think this dress is my favorite.  The print is so original, the cut is flattering yet perfect for my conservative taste, and the heart cutout in the back gives it extra flair.  I decided to wear a petticoat underneath but it looks wonderful without one as well.  My husband, who isn't really into swing dresses,  actually loved this dress.  I can't wait to wear it out again, I got so many compliments when I took these pictures.

Since I've made an effort to go out to scout new photo locations I've noticed taking pictures in public is getting a lot easier.  I still get an audience, some people even come up to talk, but everyone has been incredibly nice.  I tend to go out early in the morning so it's mostly other morning people.  I just make sure to keep some business cards in hand in case someone has a lot of questions.  I think it's a polite way to end a conversation, right?
