Gail Carriger in a Hawaiian Print eShakti Dress in DC & Boston for the Waistcoats & Weaponry Tour

For my tour for Waistcoats & Weaponry, Fashionable Reader, I tried to dress in outfits that matched my cover. On Wednesday, my first day in DC, and then later on my first day in Boston, I wore this Hawaiian print dress in shades of green and pink on a black background.

This is one of my eShakti purchases, so not vintage but retro. I paired it with an H&M blazer (similar), blush colored flats (similar), and this lovely octopus necklaces (gift from a reader, similar $18).

Signing with the pen necklace.

Here is a shot that shows the dress without the jacket. I had them put on the sleeves as the original design was without.

The flower in my hair is from Whiskey Tango Fashion.

One of the things I love about this dress is that because of the pattern and its colors I have a lot of accessories I can wear with it. Also it has a side zipper and a front zipper over the chest, and while not very vintage looking this means I can step into it. Win! I can do the hair and makeup first.

And a fan for Sophronia...
