Book Outfits ~ Changeless by Gail Carriger

So, Fashionable Reader, I am procrastinating terribly and have decided to post one of my occasional book outfit posts. Today, we will take a look at Changeless.

Book the Second of the Parasol Protectorate is all greys and black and teal. I've two outfits influenced by this book and formal one, as you see above and the flowing, which is more casual.

I love Alexia's dress on this cover, it's probably my favorite. In fact, I had it made up for me from Clockwork Couture.

 One of the things I really love about the Changeless cover is the range of teal to turquoise in both the dress and an script background slashes.

Here are some Retro Rack friendly images I've collected inspired by this cover, starting with some fun vintage pieces.
