Sailor Dresses – Rochii Stil Marinar

Pe langa pasiunea pentru rochiile retro de inspiratie anii ’50 (din care gasiti o multime in aceasta postare), anul asta m-a lovit si obsesia cu rochiile stil marinar, care amintesc si ele, de fapt, de aceeasi perioada din moda.

Nu se gasesc chiar pe toate drumurile si am cautat cu indarjire o vreme pana sa gasesc (aproape) ce imi doream, dar iata ca am acum o lista, din pacate nu atat de mare pe cat mi-as fi dorit, cu cateva rochii dragute in acest stil.

(P.S. Dupa cum veti vedea, ma refer la rochiile inspirate din costumatia unui marinar – sa zicem! -, nu la cele cu dungi marinaresti, care imi plac si ele foarte mult si care apar in numar foarte mare aici).

EN: Alongside my love of 50’s-inspired dresses (lots of them in this post), this year I seem to have developed an obsession with sailor-style dresses, which are in fact, for the most part, reminiscent of this very same period’s fashion.

As soon as my obsession manifested itself, however, I realized that this kind of dress isn’t that easy to find (unless you’re looking for a costume) and it took me a while to find what I wanted, but thanks to my relentless search across the internet, I have managed to put together a decent-sized (though not nearly as big as I’d have wanted) list of pretty dresses in this style. Hope you enjoy it!

(P.S. If you’re looking for nautical-style dresses, check out this post).


rochie stil marinar scurta mini clos bleumarin cu alb anii 50Rochie stil marinar scurta, cu ancora brodata, bleumarin cu alb, marca Hell Bunny – 39,99£ aici/ 44,99£ (aprox. 236 ron) aici; (disponibila si pe rosu – 39,99£/ aprox. 210 ron aici – si negruaici);

Hell Bunny “Motley” 50′s Mini Sailor Dress in navy with embroidered anchor/ skull39,99£ here/ 44,99£ here; (also available in red – 39,99£ here – and black here).

Incep cu rochia pe care mi-am cumparat-o eu si care imi place la nebunie: materialul e de buna calitate, un bumbac elastic gros, e foarte ampla (ai ce calca la ea, dar merita efortul!) si, ceva ce nu ma plictisesc niciodata sa spun, e supercomoda. (Insist intotdeauna asupra aspectului astuia pentru ca din punctul meu de vedere, degeaba e o rochie – sau orice alta piesa vestimentara – frumoasa daca te face sa te simti ca naiba).
Eu am fost putin trista doar ca pe mine nu e la fel de scurta ca pe manechin (am 1,70 m), dar banuiesc ca pentru majoritatea lumii asta e o veste buna. (Vine putin desupra genunchiului dar pare mai lunga din cauza amplitudinii).

EN: I’m starting off with the dress I’ve bought. I absolutely adore it: it has an amazing full skirt that makes you wanna twirl (and takes some time to iron – but it’s totally worth every bit of sweat!), the fabric is great quality – a thick stretch cotton – and, something I never get tired of saying, it’s extremely comfortable (because what use is a dress, no matter how beautiful, if you can’t wait to get home and take it off – and not in a “good” way ;), right?).
The only “bad” thing I can say about this truly gorgeous dress is that I was just a little bit disappointed that it’s not as short on me as on the model (I’m 1,70 m and it falls above the knee but seems longer due to its being so full), but I’m sure this is good news to most people. Highly recommended if you like the style!

Hell Bunny Motley 50s style Mini Sailor Dress in navyRochie stil marinar marca Hell Bunny /// Hell Bunny “Motley” 50’s Style Mini Sailor Dress.


Iat-o si in varianta midi:
EN: The “Motley” dress is also available in midi length:

Hell Bunny Sakura Mini Sailor Dress with collar in black and red“Sakura” Mini Sailor Dress with embroidered anchor and skull – from Hell Bunny. It’s 44,99£ and is available in black (here), red (here) and also navy blue (here – but only in size 14/ L);

Rochie stil marinar scurta, clos – 44,99£ (aprox. 230 ron) – disponibila pe negru (aici), pe rosu (aici) si pe albastru/ bleumarin (aici, dar doar masura L).

Eu pe asta am vrut-o initial – gulerul mi se pare de mare angajament la o rochie marinareasca! -, doar ca pana sa pot justifica cumparatura in fata constiintei mele si asa subrede, n-am mai gasit masura S bleumarin si m-am consolat cu cea pe care o stiti deja. Pana la urma cred ca e tot raul spre bine (zise vulpea cu ochii la struguri :)), pentru ca varianta fara maneci e mai potrivita de vara, mai ales ca materialul destul de gros o face suportabila cam la limita pe caldura mare.

EN: This is the one I had initially planned to buy (I really wanted my sailor dress to have a collar!), but by the time I was able to justify the purchase (to my already extremely lax conscience) it had sold out in Navy – size S, so I had to console myself with the one I’ve already told you about. In the end I think things have turned out for the better (said the fox to the grapes :)) because the halter neck style is more appropriate for our hot summers than this short sleeves style, especially considering the fabric is pretty thick as it is.

Savannah Clara Denim Dress with drop waist button back and Sailor CollarSavannah brand “Clara” Denim Sailor Dress with drop waist, collar and buttons at the back – 85€ here;

Rochie cu talia jos, guler marinaresc si nasturi la spate, din denim, marca Savannah – 85€ (aprox. 380 ron) aici.

Atat rochia asta cat si cea de mai inainte as zice ca sunt, datorita taliei joase, pentru un “mariner” mai din anii ’20 sau chiar din perioada D-lui Goe, pe la 1900, carevasazica, monser :)!

EN: I think the drop waist gives both this dress and the one before more of a 20’s vibe than a 50’s one, so I totally need me a sailor dress dress in this style too! (Did I mention I also adore 20’s fashion?)

Stiu ca postarea ar trebui sa fie despre rochii, dar e prea dragut puloverul asta cu guler marinaresc ca sa nu vi-l arat:

Dupa atatea rochite dragute si domnisoresti, simt ca trebuie ceva care sa ne scuture un pic din amorteala. Ce ziceti de un cantecel pirateresc :)? Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum, zic! Are cineva chef de o Cuba Libre acum :)?

EN: I feel after all these cute and lady-like dresses we need to shake things up a bit, so how about… Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum :)? A Cuba Libre, anyone?

Ahoy, Sailor!

EN: I hoped white cat-eye sunglasses would look as retro as you can get, but every time I see this photo I want to say “Elton John called and he wants his sunglasses back”. Which is still retro in a way, but somehow not exactly what I had in mind when I bought them :).

Pantofi stil retro, cu bareta T, toc inalt si platforma ascunsa, marca Paco Gil. Mi i-am luat de la Amazon UK, exact de aici, doar ca am dat pe ei mult, mult mai putin decat costa acum (ocazie cu care mi-am dat seama ca la Amazon preturile se pot modifica semnificativ);

Sper ca l-am facut invidios pe Capitanul pirat Davy Jones, care n-are decat sa-si manance barba de ciuda (ceea ce nu e neaparat un lucru rau, dat fiind ca e din fructe de mare…)
