Gail Carriger in a Flowered Day Dress and Silly Velvet Flower Hat in San Antonio, WorldCon 2013 Outfit Report: Day 2

Friday was one of my busy days so I decided to wear my flowered browns and blues day dress. It's easy, comfortable and looks good with flats.

I paired it with brown and mushroom oxfords (here's a DIY on painting your own spectators), vintage brown bag, vintage brown leather gloves, lace necklace gift from a reader, filigree steampunk earrings gift from another reader, and my pen necklace.


 Wearing the same dress at San Diego Comic Con, without a crinoline.

At the Alameda Vintage Fair

And a modern dress of a similar style.


I paired it with my velvet flower hat.

I know it's a really silly hat, but I kind of love it.

Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.


  1. I was quite taken with Saturday's cupcake hat, I am definitely looking forward to that post :3

  2. DIY Costume geeks, cosplayers, stylists and fashion designers should worship you.
