Gail Carriger in Vintage 1940s Black Velvet Top and a Red Trumpet Skirt with Leopard Accessories

Hello Fashionable Reader!

Here's my most recent event outfit. I went to Borderlands for their Mass Signing 20th Birthday Celebration!

(And then stayed for the Sponsor Social.)

The funny thing about this outfit is that I was having such a hard time deciding what to wear, I had Twitter vote on it.

Here's the break down of what they chose and how I put it together.

The velvet blouse is part of a 1940s suit (the skirt is no more). Like all black velvet, it photographs poorly, but it has tons of lovely little details like buttons and cuffs. You'll just have to trust me that they are there.

The bag, gloves and shoes are all modern but I bought them 10 years ago. The bag came from a thrift store, the shoes are aerosoles, and the gloves H&M.

However, still available are...

Next to the amazing Katherine Kerr (I was a little star struck). 

I'm afraid, since it was at night, the light wasn't awesome
Finally here I am in my special Borderlands Sponsor sweatshirt...

Take a good hard look, this is the only time you will ever see Gail Carriger IN A HOODIE.
