Online boutique selling classic glamour wear for classy dames. Are you looking for clothing that will make you stand out in tastefully timeless fashion? Do you covet the looks of style icons Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly or Rita Hayworth? Then you’ll love Blue Velvet Vintage! Offering fine quality authentic vintage and vintage inspired fashions from romantic turn of the century looks, to exquisite beaded reproduction flapper dresses, elegant 50s party dresses and Old Hollywood style glamour gowns, we have something for your next special occasion that is sure to turn heads.

Since 2002, owner Theresa Campbell Mckee has been curating a classic and stylish collection of authentic vintage clothing and vintage inspired fashions that provide her customers with an array of options in iconic mid-century silhouettes. A couple of years after starting her business, Theresa created a small line of 50s style dresses to offer vintage loving women favorite looks that they often couldn’t find in their size in authentic vintage.

Theresa has always been a collector of period clothing and furnishings before turning her life long love into a business. She totally embraces the vintage lifestyle with a mid century decorated home and her own fabulous vintage wardrobe that she loves wearing. She’s also an avid swing dancer, big fan of classic movies and long time Vintage Fashion Guild member. So she has the expertise and passion it takes to dress women in a classicly glamorous style!

Theresa’s dress line is named “Classic Dame” because it embodies the true quality and style of the classic ladylike dresses of the 1950s. We like to think of them as classy, with a hint of sassy! The dresses are made in the USA and sold exclusively from our website. The quality , construction and timelessness of our dresses ensures they’ll remain stylishly relevant and be around for years to come. Theresa was the first to put sturdy metal zippers in her vintage inspired dresses, just like the authentic dresses from the past, a detail much appreciated by vintage clothing aficionados. She has spared no expense to ensure her designs are as close to the originals as possible, yet made to fit the modern figure. Each production run consists of limited quantities to ensure strict quality control and new styles are only introduced after extensive sampling and pattern reworking for the desired look and fit.

Both Theresa and her staff are experts at styling outfits for vintage themed events. It is her priority that the business remain an exclusive boutique with personalized service, where women can be confident knowing the staff can and will take the time to advise them on how to look past perfect from head to toe for important special events and weddings!

In this era of giant brands and impersonal customer service, Theresa’s goal is to offer an alternative shopping experience, more akin to the exclusive little dress shops of the past where the staff new their product, where you could count on individual expert attention, friendly service and leaving thrilled with your purchase!

Here are a few of our most recent customer emails

“First I want to thank you so much for keeping me calm and making me feel like I was the only customer you had to take care of! The dress came Monday and it was amazing. There was one bead that was loose, but an easy fix for my alterations queen. And it FIT! I am so pleased, so very, very happy! And the BEST part, was my mom truly loved the earrings I picked out for her!

Please share what I am about to say with a manager or owner:

“A new co-worker here turned me on to the Blue Velvet Vintage website because that is where she purchased her dress. As it turns out we are both having Halloween weddings this year. Skimming thru the pages, I found this gown and fell in love, obsessed; if you will. From the moment I contacted customer service and reached you, it was absolutely wonderful. You were quick to respond with prompt, happy responses to my unending questions. The dress was out of stock and I became even more obsessed, waiting. Patience is not something I am blessed with. But, I checked one day and saw it listed as in stock. Immediately I placed an order and then, the website failed me. I emailed. And then 10 minutes later I called in a true Bridezilla panic! You literally called me two minutes later after hearing the panic in my voice on the machine. You calmed me, took my order and took the extra time to make sure I was happy. You went the extra mile, which in these fast paced days, seems to never happen. Then the dress came, perfectly packaged and all that I dreamed of. I couldn’t be happier and I have you to thank! Please tell everyone, that you ROCK, because I said so! From the bottom of my heart, thank you. ”

“I wanted to thank you for expediting this dress!
You may recall we had an initial glitch with another vendor who “forgot” to tell us they had run out of my daughter’s size.

I have told so many what great service you provided.

Here she is in it!! Lots of people asked “Where did you get that dress!”
Anyway thank you—She looked amazing and best of all a Perfect Fit!”
