Gail Carriegr in aRed Polka Dot Pencil Dress in San Antonio, WorldCon 2013 Outfit Report: Day 3
I don't have much to say about this dress, Fashionable Reader. It's an old favorite that still fits. It's one of the first vintage dresses I ever bought, yet still going strong. It's red. It's pencil cut. It's polka-dotted. What's not to love? I paired it with my very silly hat made from a crochet tea-cake (gift from a reader in Portland some years back). Silliest of hats. You can read all about it on its first outing. I've got my red bag, my cream oxfords, my vintage pearl necklace, newly acquired vintage red leather gloves, and the ubiquitous pen necklace.
At WorldCon I picked up these steampunk items, a pair of earrings with fans (because they reminded me of Sophronia) and a ring made from a pocket watch, because it was fun. They are from Punk'dWorks and her prices were pretty darn reasonable.
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
