I discovered Bernie Dexter dresses only a few months ago and have already collected a closet full LOL !! What a lovely dress this is ! My husband commented on how pretty the colors were . This is the only chelsea style dress I own so far . I bought an xs . the bust area is still a bit big on me but I am pretty petite on top . The skirt is lovely and full and the pattern ,while called the "new years eve" dress feels like a "celebration dress" that can be worn for lots of occasions ...I'm very pleased !
