Gail Carriger Retro 1940s Black Velvet Top and Polkadotted Skirt and Tilted Hat

So for the next day at WorldCon I wore this old favorite yellow skirt with black dots. It's Max Studio and if I had to buy a new one I'd get something like this instead $20 white with black dots, high waisted. I think it'd fit better in my wardrobe. 

The shirt actually started life as a vintage 1960s black linen pencil dress and I cannibalized it into a peplum blouse. Dress looked a lot like this originally.

I'm wearing these two pieces with steampunk earrings (similar $20), pen necklace (here $18), and flat aerosole sandals to save my feet (here $40). I also added a tilted teardrop hat. You can follow my adventure dyeing this hat here

I love this hat but it is hard to travel with so you don't see me in it often. Here's a bit of a sample of other tilted hats...
