Are you looking for a vintage fashion expert to help readers navigate the inspiring world of vintage fashion? Owner of Blue Velvet Vintage & vintage clothing expert extraordinaire Theresa Campbell McKee is your go-to gal for all things retro.
A former personal chef and caterer on private luxury yachts and estates, Theresa first carried her love of vintage through international waters. Discovering one-of-a-kind treasures at various ports of call, she then offered her unique finds up for sale to a small network of friends and fellow enthusiasts. Over more than a decade, this beloved, part-time effort eventually became Blue Velvet Vintage, a long-standing mainstay in online vintage and vintage-inspired shopping for women all over the world.
Like Coco, Theresa believes “A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous.” She dreams in black and white love stories, swoons for hourglass silhouettes and never leaves the house without her signature red lipstick.
