Oh, sailor

sailor5

I borrowed this dress from Erica via Flock Together some time ago. (Sorry!) But it hasn't been warm enough until now to wear it. Though now it's back to freezing. The dress guided me and I embraced the sailorness of it. The dress speaks for itself and I kept the accessories to a minimum.

Gossip Girl's series finale aired yesterday and my heart broke a little. I loved the book series and I loved the show even though it wasn't always great. The fashion alone had me hooked for six years. It didn't hurt that the show was created by the same man that did the O.C. (the best show) and that all the people are so stupidly beautiful. Without Gossip Girl, I don't know where I'll seek fashion inspiration on that level because really, it was the best part. Next year, Dexter and Breaking Bad end and I'll have nothing left to watch. Okay, that's not true, but have you noticed how much I love television? It's just the best.

  2. What a seriously awesome dress, love the sailor feel of it, perfect with those bright red tights! I've never actually watched gossip girl but keep meaning to! Next time I'm sick, I'll have a marathon

  3. I've been meaning to start Gossip Girl. It's on Netflix, but I'm still trying to get through Desperate Housewives and Downton Abbey. But yeah, I can imagine that the fashion alone would be a reason to watch it. Plus, I'm a Blake Lively fan, so that should be good incentive for me.

  4. That dress is so stinkin cute!!! I love it! I am not a big TV fan at all. I got into Sons of Anarchy with Patrick, but other than that, I'm not too into it. I have, however, thought about getting into Gossip Girl while Patrick is gone purely because I heard such great things about the fashion.

  6. This outfit is so cute! I love how you paired red, white, and blue without looking like you should be at a 4th of July parade! :)

  7. I scanned the words Gossip Girl and had to stop reading! I'm on season 5 right now and DVR'd season 6 so I can't know what happens. LOL. I love that dress and the bow is so girly and cute. Love it with the bright tights! <3

  8. I can't even start to tell you how much I love this outfit. Sailor inspired fashion has to be my absolute favorite thing ever. I love, love, love how you styled it with the red tights. And yes, television is awesome. I'm really behind on my Gossip Girl episodes, so I really have to catch up now. I'm really going to miss it.

  14. I love TV too. I'm right there with you. I wish I had more time to watch it though!
    Also, I have this dress too! It's one of my favorite Forever 21 buys ever (and I have a lot of those under my belt). Why haven't I paired mine with red tights?? It's so incredibly adorable like this! Thanks for the great idea.

  16. Oh man, I'm going to be a wreck when Breaking Bad ends, it's not even funny. But enough about me, this dress looks absolutely adorable on you! The right tights look perfect with it.

  17. I wore this exact same dress as a Halloween costume last last year. It's adorable on you. And also, my friend wore it once to a bar and a guy randomly made out with her because she thought she was just cosplaying for the hell of it and she just wore it because its a cute dress.

    ANYHOW. love it

  23. So cute!! I wish I had a dress like this. ;) I like that you chose to keep the accessories low key. The collar and bow are perfect by themselves.
