I recently received a dress from Blue Velvet Vintage's house band, Classic Dame. I chose the polka dot monroe dress in powder blue. It is just like a dress Marilyn wore in one of her photoshoots. I love taking fashion inspiration from Marilyn Monroe and I can tell Blue Velvet Vintage does also. She was a classic beauty and had great style. I especially loved her casual day wear!
The Monroe dress arrived super fast and was wrapped in a clear plastic bag inside the box. I was immediatly impressed with the quality of the garment. The bodice is very structured and lined with matching fabric. The white piping is such a nice detail and matches the ties at the shoulders. I loved the gathered skirt. The skirt is also a nice length, not too short. My favorite detail has to be the metal zipper. What a nice touch. Bravo Blue Velvet Vintage!
I chose a size 8 based on my measurements and the size chart. It was a perfect fit! This is the skirt without a petticoat, but you could always add one. The dress was very comfortable. I wore it all night. I think it will be one of my favorite new dresses. I can't wait to try some of the other dresses from the Classic Dame line. There is a pink hawaiian dress I have been eyeing!
Thanks again to Blue Velvet Vintage for the beautiful dress!
