Originally, I lusted after the Sundae Rose dress that has this print in the skirt with red fabric on the top. I could never find it in my size so I fixed that hole in my life by buying the same fabric as a handmade skirt, which I often pair with a red top to elude to that Bernie I never could get.
The skirt has been fun to have - because its not a dress, I can style it in many ways. Still, I daydreamed about someday getting the real thing - the real Bernie dress.
I didn't hesitate and snagged it - for a whopping $55! Man, do I love eBay!
It arrived only a few days later and I couldn't wait to try it on. Then we got some snow. So it just hung there on my dressing room door, looking oh so lovely, waiting for the day I could whirl and twirl in it.
Of course, it pairs PERFECTLY with my latest pair of BAITs, a Christmas gift from Cody this year (I know, isn't he great?), bright red lips, and a few die cut prints of ice cream sundaes.
I love how this cut fits - it's a snug fit but not in a bad way at all. In fact, I'm quite smitten with the va-va-voom factor it gives me. Cleavage? What!? That's a concept I am unfamiliar with!
Needless to say, the dress received praise from the panel of judges (aka Cody) and I am super in love with it. While I will still wear it now under a cardigan and over a pair of tights, I can't wait to be able to wear it all on its own.
I think I found my favorite summer dress-to-be!
This...I just had to share due to it's ridiculous-ness. You're welcome.
