Gail Carriger's New Acquisitions ~ Replacements

I've been pretty good about not buying anything major new since my surgery but I did need a few replacements for stuff.

My much beloved black knee-high flat boots finally died the good death. I've had them for ages and I pretty much live in them all winter - so it's no shock. I found these at Nordstrom Rack to take their place.

About $200

They have a steampunk sort of look plus they work for everyday.

I got this little jersey black mini dress with pockets - mine has short sleeves. It packs well and can be thrown on over anything. Picked it up for under $20 to replace two other dresses that no longer fit well since my surgery.

Gold Shrug $20

This gold shrug fills a niche in the wardrobe. I feel like shrugs are OK now that I have smaller breasts, not so emphasizing.

Found these scarves on Amazon. They are 24" head scarves for $7 each, a little small but come in the colors I wanted, so I have replaced my existing ones with these.

Lastly, I invested in a vintage 1950's bra. A little small for me at 30DD (I'm mostly wearing 32DDD these days) but good enough. And it is super pointy, the first one I have ever found that even slightly fits.

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