Fast forward two years later, and I'm on an Etsy hunt for a novelty print dress. I find one adorned with cherries and I pull the trigger. The listing said "no brand' because the seller must have missed the tag, but when I received my pretty cherry dress, it was also Jenni brand! I searched for more Jenni dresses online and found the prettiest tulip-printed with its original tags, in my size, for a steal. So I scooped it up too:
And now, every so often, I do a search for Jenni dresses on Etsy and eBay. They are well made and fit like a dream. Most were made in the 1970s with a 1950s silhouette. There is often a built-in bra or soft cups (which I think should be mandatory in all strappy dresses because strapless bras are the devil when it's hot outside!!). The patterns and colors are bold and fun.
Here are a few favorite Jenni's on Etsy right now (I may scoop up that first one on payday--wouldn't it look great to complete my set?)
