Lately, we've been having a great time exploring different styles and stepping out of our comfort zones; but, sometimes it's really nice to just go back to what you know best.  Swing dresses were definitely our go-to style choice for the longest time. We love that they're universally flattering, comfortable and usually provide an effortlessly put together look even if you don't have much effort to put forth (which is really nice, when you're busy).  We noticed Unique Vintage recently added a bunch of new Bernie Dexter dresses to their site (YESSSS, Bernie is one of our favorites) so we made sure to snag a couple.

If there is one clothing-related FAQ we get here on the blog or on Instagram the most, it's about the fit of Bernie Dexter dresses.  We've touched on this before but it's been so long, it never hurts to do a refresher.  Bernie Dexter dresses run small in the bust and loose in the waist, this is universal for every style she carries (we only make this leap because I think between the two of us, we've tried about all of them).  The Chelsea style dress Amanda is wearing has a little tie waist but the Veronique style dress Katie is wearing comes with a belt (and seriously y'all, we love these belts).  All her swing dresses are also full-skirted and come with wonderful lipstick pockets.  We're also happy to answer any additional questions anyone might have regarding fit, specific styles, etc.

Do you have a favorite 'Bernie Dexter' Dress?
