Ahoy! Now this is a Memorial Day outfit! It’s nautical for the upcoming summer season, and it’s military-inspired to remember all those who have served! Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester) tends to be in a state of dudgeon, but here she looks positively sweet in this sailor suit! Blair’s version is called the “Captain” dress from Bettie Page Clothing. There are actually dozens of places to buy a knockoff (this editor purchased an identical one for a whopping $25 on eBay). Miss Waldorf wore this outfit on the first season finale of Gossip Girl when she was supposed to meet Chuck, and take off for Tuscany – but of course, nothing ever goes as planned for Blair. At least she accessorized well with her neck scarf, Louis Vuitton luggage, and Yves Saint Laurent preppy pumps. Here’s hoping your Memorial Day goes better than Blair’s!
