Paris is a Woman...

Hello all, Jana of Small Town, Big Smile! here today sharing an amazing Bernie Dexter dress borrowed from the lovely Sammi.  This is my first official Flock Together remix, and I'm so excited to be doing it with this dress.  I've been hunting for this print for some time now, either in the dress or the blouse, so when I saw spotted it on the swap list, I just had to have it.  Bernie Dexter is one of my favourite dress designers, and this one is no different. Angela Carter said Paris is a woman, and this dress definitely fits that quote perfectly. With it's Parisian print, puff sleeves, the little sailor bow... it's so perfectly feminine! I was a little worried about remixing it after Katie and Sammi, because they both have such amazingly feminine-vintage styles, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to style it differently than they did.  Luckily, I love pale-blues, so I had an assortment of goodies to haul out for this dress... I may have also cheated a little and wore my wedding reception hat.  I think it was totally justified though, because I was hesitant with how I looked in it, and how it would photograph.  This post just reiterates that I need to wear it at my wedding!
