Gail Carriger Purple Flower Top & Vintage 1970s Cream Knit Skirt at ConFusion, Detroit 2017

For the second day of Confusion I wore a few old favorites.

My favorite grey facinator (now in black and red $15ea), a vintage 1940s cream jacket (it looks better buttoned), a silky flower print purple blouse from J.C. Penny (years ago), and the skirt part of my 1950s cream knit suit, with black ballet flats (similar $15). I try to wear flats the second day of a con to give my feet a rest and because Saturday is almost always my busiest day rushing from panel to panel.

The choker was a gift from the BFF, it's made of tiny little silver roses. I've never seen anything else like it out there. Those are my favorite earrings made from fountain pen nibs. Mine are silver but I did find these brass ones for $24, and I'm sure the silver are all over Etsy.

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

  1. Flats are a wise move. I have heard a number of women complain about high heels while wearing them anyway. Also, I have heard shoes with an arch support are better still, but they are always unfashionable.

  2. I don't have an image, but the choker sounds like one my Colombian mother in law has. It's silver filigree from Mompox, Colombia.
