Gail Carriger in Vintage 1950s Cream Knit top and retro pedal pushers with Leopard In Seattle at Drinklings ECCC Pin-up Style

I wasn't sure about the weather in Seattle, so I packed all over the place. For Drinklings, the first night of ECCC I ended up throwing together this outfit:

I'm wearing a vintage pillbox fuzzy leopard hat (here's a video on how to make your own), one of my square head scarves around my neck (corciova 35" square $10), a vintage nubby 1950s cream sweater (part of a set), black H&M sharp cropped blazer (similar), high wasted triple button tuxedo skinny jeans with cuffs rolled up (similar), Guess wedge sandals with leopard heel (a big favorite of mine, several seasons old, similar in black or leopard), and I'm carrying a leopard purse that is actually a wine-carrier cooler bag ($25) but which I use for both burritos on the plane and evening affairs requiring leopard... as you do.

And yes I know those are actual trousers that I am wearing. There are some who believe that my legs stop at the knee. Now you know the truth, Fashionable Reader.

And now for the general wonderful nature of leopard accessories...

Here's a glimpse at some of the leopard in my wardrobe
