In The Kitchen!

I saw this gorgeous dress come up "on sale" a couple of weeks just before Christmas, I decided I had to purchase it.  It was through A Classic Paradise also known as Tiki Swag and Shop VDM.
Because of the red, green and white colours, I actually wore this dress on Christmas eve.  As well as this dress being "on sale" for a great price, I also received free shipping to Australia - which was wonderful!
This dress is actually by Bernie Dexter and is called Kelly dress in kitchen print. I love the colours and print over this dress, with the retro kitchen appliances, utensils and crockery.
It's a shirt style dress with a gathered circle skirt, I wore one of my petticoats underneath to give it more shape and fullness. It's made from 100% cotton (has hardly no stretch), has hidden lipstick pockets and comes with a matching red belt.
The most favorite part of this dress for me personally is the zipper down the front - instead of buttons, it is such a great idea! I found this dress so easy and quick to put on (I didn't have to worry about doing up buttons) and very comfortable to wear.
Accessories Include:

Shoes from Bait Footwear
Wicker Handbag is from Pinup Girl Clothing
Double rose hair-flower from Daisy Jean Floral
Brooch is thrifted
Bangles from various boutiques
White hoop earrings from Revere Folie
This week's blog photos were taken in the kitchen at home.  I knew I wanted to take photos wearing this dress to share on my blog in a kitchen! There are actually some retro/vintage inspired appliances in the kitchen for example the oven and microwave. So I believe it made for a great backdrop for photos.
In other news my friend Michelle aka Vera Vamp and I had a busy weekend.  I asked Michelle if she could please help me take photos for my blog, as I had 6 dresses to take photos of! I'll actually start sharing these dresses on my blog next week....so please keep your eyes peeled for that!
This weekend I have the rest of the family staying at our place, so it should be a hectic but good weekend!

Until next time!

  1. Super print, yes it has festive colours but with the light background you can wear it all through Spring and Summer. Very cute kitchen! X

  2. Supercute! I like the front zip too, but I actually have never had a dress with a zipper like that. Bernie's dresses are unfortunately too short for my taste, and I think they are a bit overpriced too since they are just cotton dresses that aren't even lined.. But she uses wonderful fabrics that I reeeaally love!

  4. You look lovely and I've always loved this dress :) I actually thought of buying it, but just like Alisa I'm just worried that it'll be too short on my 172cm frame. I wouldn't like having the waist right below my bust, but if it would fit where it should, I'd totally buy this even though it's not lined and is 100% cotton. I love the print and the shape, very pretty.

    1. Oh thank-you. Yes I love Bernie's unique prints but maybe her dresses should be lined etc especially for the price of them!

  5. Love this dress on you! And I love how you photographed it in your kitchen with all your vintage appliances. Such a cool kitchen! I have yet to try this dress cut but I love that it has a front zip!

  7. This is one of my own most worn dresses. It looks great on you. I also love how easy to put it on; that there's no buttons to struggle with!
    Love those BAIT oxfords paired with the dress, too. I haven't tried out that BAIT style, as of yet.
