Vintage Style Sailor Dress with Oversized Collar


Hello all!
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.

  5. Such a nice dress - I'm with your mum, leave the shape as it is. I think the low hem is all part of its flattering affect!

  21. I have considered buying this dress so many times after tracking down where to get it when I saw Blair wear it, it was my fave dress of the whole show and I've never forgotten it! Looking at it now I don't think it's really my style but it looks absolutely stunning on you! I would shorten it personally X
