Vintage Outfit Post-Champagne Wishes With The Bernie Dexter Chelsea Pin Up Dress in New Year's Eve Print

When I was a little girl I sometimes used to watch Life Styles of The Rich and Famous with Robin Leach.  I loved the gaudy 1980s fabulousness of it all and I liked the closimg line "champagne wishes and caviar dreams!"



Well I never became rich and famous but I've had caviar a few times, and liked it, and I love champagne, both the drink and the print on my Bernie Dexter Chelsea dress.

I have quite a few novelty purses, but this 1950s cat one is my all time favorite. 




I got this dress over the summer during a big Bernie Dexter sale, and these pictures  where taken in August during my brief blue-haired fling but I've saved them until now because this dress is obviously made for New Year's Eve.  

(This is also one dress that I think looked good with my blue hair, andexpirement I have mixed feelings about)



I have to admit that as much as I adore the print on this dress, I wasn't crazy about the fit.  I adore the full skirt which like all Bernie Dresses looks best with a petticoat, mine is from Amazon:



but I didn't like the neckline at all, it just didn't work with my body.  I was on the verge of re-selling it when I tried pairing it with a cropped cardi from Doll Me Up and voila! Perfect neckline.


Happy New Year!
