For Saturday night of WorldCon (the party night) I donned my newest purchase, a silver sparkle dress from Relic Vintage on Haight St. (I'm in good company with the silver sparkles
as it turns out.) I purchased this cocktail gown specifically for WorldCon in San Antonio, when my green and black
one's zipper broke and I realized I'd worn the marigold
three years running.
It's paired with a little red and black dotted hair bob from Ross, silver octopus necklace
gift from a reader, silver bow earrings, long red vintage opera gloves
from my grandmother, a vintage red crinoline, red bag
, and Via Spiga sandals.

The red insert across the Rack is actually a pinned silk handkerchief. Sophronia would be proud. I had intended to pin a flower over the excessive cleavage but it wasn't sufficient. Since it's you, my dear fashionable reader, I'll demonstrate what I mean.
Do you see how vital the handkerchief? I'm going to have to find a substitute for when I don't want to wear this dress with the red accessories. But I was pretty darn pleased to have this work on the fly for this one evening.

I had a lot of fun in this dress. Went to Drinks with Authors, various parties, and then ended up at the bar. As you do.

Something from the archives that is similar, if not exactly the same.

Retro Rack is also on facebook
where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
I like the red handkerchief, it looks like it was always part of the ensemble. So you'll just have to start collecting scarves and handkerchiefs for each color you combine with the silver sparkle dress - which looks lovely on you, by the way.ReplyDelete
