I must admit I was ridiculously excited to receive a long-awaited parcel, knowing what it contained, from a vintage clothing company from America, Blue Velvet Vintage. If you're a fan of Gossip Girl, you might recognise it as that sailor dress worn by Blair Waldorf. The brand of that dress is Bettie Paige, as confirmed by the costume director of the show - although Blair's version was shortened. I worship at the alter of the show's stylist Eric Daman, I've always said I could watch that programme on mute purely for the styling. In regards to the quality of the dress itself, its perfect. I can't give it anything other than top marks for its quality, uniqueness and flattering cut. I couldn't be happier with it. I'm also considering having it shortened to just above the knee to make it more daytime appropriate, but my mother insists it'll ruin the 'silhouette' - what do you think?
Dress : c/o Blue Velvet Vintage. Earrings : ASOS. Shoes : Next.
