As soon as I saw this Bernie Dexter paint dress arrive on her website, I knew I had to have it! It instantly caught my eye because of how adorable and colourful it is! But, I didn't want to pay full price for it. So, I impatiently waited to see if it'd show up elsewhere, with a coupon code. When I posted a picture of it on Instagram, luckily someone commented and told me it'd be on their new website soon for a big discount! I was so excited to hear that, and bought it as soon as I went on the site. I ended up ordering another Bernie from their site the next day, too, for the same discounted price. After that, it took about two weeks to receive the dresses, as they hadn't received them themselves yet. They arrived Monday, and I couldn't wait to get home from work to try them on! I sized up from my usual Bernie size in this dress, as well as the other one I received. I knew the other one I received I would need to size up in for my bust, as I have other prints int he same style. (The Paris style.) As for this paint print dress, I sized up because of the buttons in front. I didn't want to risk gaping, or not being able to button them at all because of my chest. Well, unfortunately, this dress is very large in the waist. It does fit in the bust though, without gaping, which is good. I'll probably have my mom take it in for me at the waist. Even with a belt, I don't think this it defines my waist enough. I did switch this belt for a thicker one after taking pictures, and I thought it looked better. The Paris dress I received isn't nearly as big in the waist as this one is. I really have a love for shirt dresses, and I'm so glad I now have another! I think I'll be wearing this dress a lot. I can never have enough Bernie Dexter dresses! She's one of my very favourite designers. I have more Bernie dresses now than any other brand.
