Gail Carriger's Recent Aquisitions ~ Accessories

Recently I have added a number of new accessories into my wardrobe, Fashionable Reader. OK, so some of them were from several months ago and I forgot to report in, but here they are...

Black & White bow earrings from Ruby Blackbird

My favorite thing about these earrings, apart from the adorableness, is the fact that they are super light weight, and Rachel always uses hypoallergenic metal for her hooks.

Collar gift from the BFF

This collar was a gift from the BFF. She found it at a vintage market. I'm not certain exactly what I am going to do with it, probably pair it with some of my few high necked sweaters, but I'm actively looking for ways to wear it.

Straw hat

Also a gift from the BFF. I went begging to borrow a hat for a wedding because it was outside and I hadn't a big one that worked with the dress I wanted to wear. She had three and I chose this one, which she promptly gifted to me. You see why I love her?

Tassel Necklace
This one came from target and it pulls the hairs at the back of the neck. I still wear it, but I'm not sure how long it will last.

Miz Mooz Shoes (no longer available but there are some other great ones)

I briefly reported on these as well. I've been hunting for some cream close toed shoes for a while now and finally took a risk and ordered these. Miz Mooz has been failing to fit me comfortably recently, but these ones are great. You'll see me in them soon, I suspect.

Black poofy skirt from Crossraods Trading

I got this to be both and underskirt and a skirt, anything that can run double duty on book tour is good with me. I haven't fully tested it yet. Of course a full skirt to my waist with the Rack can sometimes be ridiculous looking so I am not confident in its efficacy but there is only one way to find out ~ photos.

Brown cardy thrifted in Exeter

I found this puppy at a charity shop in Exeter when I was in England for WorldCon. I've been looking for a brown short wasted cardy for ages. This one is BCBG and has a modern edge to it but the cut suits vintage. I am considering putting some pearl buttons down the front. Still, it's nice to cross a unicorn off my list at last!

To eat in gloves or mittens was always foolish; fortunately it is no longer fashionable; but greatly the contrary.

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