    Hello lovely ladies! I have been searching for the perfect pair of high-waisted capri jeans, and finally came across what I was looking for on Bernie Dexter's online shop. However, the pants are $144 (not to mention shipping and customs to Canada) which will amount to quite the fortune for me. But these are the jeans of my dreams, so I'd be willing to spend the money, if the quality is good/worth it. I've never owned anything from Bernie Dexter though so I haven't a clue what to expect. Does anyone here have any experience with her clothing?

    Not yet, but I'll be buying one of her dresses within the week. I'd love to hear what other people think.

    That has got to be the cutest dress ever, Lenore! If you end up buying it, I hope you'll post pictures so I can live vicariously through you! :D

    I have 3 knit tops and 2 sarong dresses that I purchased a few years ago at the start of the business. I have only good things to say about the quality, style, fabric, and sizing. You will probably be very happy with your purchase. What is the exchange/refund policy? If you can return your purchase if not satisfied, you have nothing to lose.
    I ordered mine from babygirlboutique http://www.babygirlboutique.com/bernie-dexter-for-babygirl-clothing.html [/URL]

    That's really good to know! On the actual Bernie Dexter website, she doesn't provide refunds. I had no idea you could order her stuff elsewhere though, and it looks like babygirlboutique does accept returns so I'll definitely be having a look there. Thanks for sharing, Scarlett! :)

    Retronista, I recently got an email notice from What Katie Did and they are selling the Bernie Dexter line now too. If you just search Bernie Dexter dresses, you'll find Unique Vintage, ModCloth and a few others that carry the line that may have a better return/refund policy.

    I have been very curious about her brand too, I haven't seen so many reviews of it so far, eventhough she seems to have some interesting options available.

    Have any body with a very large cup size tried any of the dresses? I wonder how big bust firendly they are in terms of coverage, and if they will be too tight, but maybe particularly if the seams at the underbust manage to sit properly under the bust or not (as I see a lot of items with such a seam line).

    Sooo.. I went to buy my Sundae dress, and they were sold out at the time... I've got a notification set to let me know when it's back in stock.

    I got a dress with Pineapples all over it instead. :)

    I was actually going to buy it from there, but sadly, they ran out of my size before I could. I love modcloth. They might be a bit more pricey on some things, but I've always had excellent customer service and that means a lot to me.


    And no, you can never go wrong with pineapples. :)
