All Onboard!

Although I can't tell the difference between starboard and port, a style that I've always liked are nautical-inspired dresses. There's something about the colors and the stripes that convey naughty and nice all at once. Some ebay sellers are selling vintage children's clothing as mini dresses for grown-ups too. If the dresses fit, why not? There are lots of lovely children's sailor inspired dresses!

Nothing beats this fabulous Bettie Page dress though:


The white and navy dress below looks similar to my Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. The only visible difference is the ribbon in front: the MJ dress does not have a real ribbon, instead it is a 2D sewed-on ribbon. This looks great too though:


This is a fantastic vintage navy-inspired jacket. According to the seller, it was once a little girl's jacket, great for petite girls:

That last jacket is awesome. The first dress is really cute too! I love the sailor theme but don't actually own a sailor-dress yet! To be fair the trend comes round every Spring so I will find something one of these days!
