We hope everyone had a great weekend! This was a really important weekend for us because our all time favorite book series, Harry Potter, was "continued" and we got our first pieces of wizarding world "cannon" outside Pottermore content in YEARS. We were super bummed that we couldn't be together to celebrate Harry Potter and the Cursed Child but, we're so excited for our planned Facetime dates to discuss it.. and it's going to be hard to wait until after Amanda's huge (and last for a while) test on Wednesday to read it.

Katie here, back to fashion! I've had to learn the hard way that anything button-up by Unique Vintage is really not ideal for my body shape.  Sizing up to a medium would have made this dress look like a maternity dress on me so I opted for a small.  I love the look of it, but it wasn't the comfiest thing to wear.  On the upside, the light, flowy material was fun to dance around in.

As for Amanda, the Chelsea might be our favorite Bernie Dexter dress style or maybe a close second to the Paris (seen in this blog post).  Basically, it's comfy without the boob restrictions of a Paris and we recommend sizing down in this style.  This Black + Gold Lipstick Print is a Unique Vintage exclusive and it's beautiful.  We had no idea when we were looking at it online,  but the gold is actually a gold foil, giving the pattern of the dress added dimension and making you feel a bit fancier when you wear it because -- why not?
