"Smiles go a million miles!"
A Bernie Dexter dresses are magic dresses! They make you feel wonderful! They also make all the people around you feel wonderful as well. Feel confident and never forget to smile!
The quality of material and style are excellent! The size measurements were accurate, I fit perfectly into a 2X. However, I needed to have straps taken up, and the sides of the chest darted for a more smooth/tight fit around the chest.
This is my 6th shirt I have bought! Everywhere I go people want to know where I’ve bought them.
I am so thrilled with the pretty jade and dark green shades! There are some yellow and brown accents to pull on for accessories. I have another style plan for the browns. I was entirely thrilled with how the flowers drape my front and the haunted ones adorn the skirt. *Super fun print placement for my particular dress* I got the amazing Florence and Kelly in this print as well which also had charming placements. Must say, for my personality this often feels to be my favorite in the print! I wanted more after seeing it irl; it truly feels like a papyrus or old paper background color; overall akin to French and vintage wallpaper. I am partial to green. Vera has been an ideal fit for me and I can wear with it without a bra. It will be tight at the start and give beautifully as the day goes. I can wear mine all day long. True to the size chart, a size larger is far too large for my small bust so stick with the chart. Love this dress!
These new Vera styles fit a tad tighter than the older ones. They’re very fitted and I adore it! My bust is tiny and I can wear without a bra or with the most padded and it accommodates beautifully. Can’t beat a full circle skirt with pockets large enough for my phone! This print is glorious! I like dark colors, but the the yellow and coral (two of my favorite color pigments) pop just the right amount of captivating accent that when I got this print, I hung it in my room for months just to enjoy its beauty. There’s also a teal accent on the bird one could choose to accessorize and bring out. This just feels like “me” entirely when I put it on! “Me” past, present and future to a “T”.
What can I say?! Of course Bernie Dexter carries the cutest outerwear to compliment her dresses and what not. This denim jacket is perfect on any occasion and light and cool enough to wear during those warm days and nights instead of a cardigan. I love that it’s a thinner material yet still looks nice and pressed. I plan to keep it looking tight so I will definitely get it dry cleaned. I have ordered so many items from this amazing shoppe and Bernie never disappoints. Like, if I could create a store and put all of my dream dresses in one place it’s Bernie Dexter’s. Beyond grateful for this lovely vintage dress shoppe and what’s more is that Bernie herself is so helpful and goes above and beyond to answer this little ol’ rockabilly gals questions or concerns. Love the jacket, love Bernie!
This print is amazing! I can’t get enough of it;
ethereal and cheerful with yellows and pink and my favorite to accent-black! Vera is meant to be very fitted and this she is! I don’t recommend sizing up unless you’ve got a larger bust. I’m a small bust and wear a padded bra and it’s amazing! Full circle twirls and all the skin for hot summer days!
I love everything about this dress from the fit to the print and the length. This is going to be my go-to summer dress!
I love this cut and print! I sized up to a medium since I’ve never tried this cut before, and it fit perfectly. (I’m 26/27 waist and 34 bust.)
I had to sew a little bit of the dress to fit my exact sizing but I don’t mind! This dress is super cute and very well made I adore it so much I’m just glad they even carried my size!!! Thank you so much for thinking of the bigger gals ❤️❤️❤️
I personally texted Bearnie...what a thrill. Asked her if the Vroom purses would ever be back in stock. She immediately posted her restock to her sight and I even got a little gift!! It arrived promptly and as I have found with other things purchased from her.Even better than the picture. I thank you kindly Bearnie and can't wait when I am able to make another purchase. Love your rockabilly and styles that explore your heritage. Many thanks!!
5 STARS for this kind hearted lady.
Love this dress but unfortunately it doesn’t fit. It seems to be at least size smaller that my other 1X Francis dresses. I will not part with it though in hopes I lose a few pounds. Also, there was an issue with my order but Bernie herself called me and got the order straightened out immediately. She was so sweet and helpful which gave me a deeper appreciation for the company.
Had the reviews not mentioned how small this dress ran I would have been sad, but with the awesome new feature Bernie has on the site of reviews this helped me size up and make the right decision. This dress is adorable. I sized up 2 sizes and its nice an comfy.
As a long waisted woman I have trouble finding leggings that come up high enough to be comfortable and that stay up. These fit the bill perfectly! I will be warm and comfy this winter and I won’t be sneaking around trying to unobtrusively pull up my leggings. Warmth without bulk, too!
I was so pleased with my mystery box! There were styles and prints I would have never picked for myself but I loved everything on!
I ordered the medium, and it is perfect. I get nothing but positive comments when I wear it. I really can’t think of another word besides “PERFECT”!
