Spot the outfit in the book! Clothing Featured in How to Marry a Werewolf: Hats, Dresses and Men in Uniform by Gail Carriger

Want to play a rousing game of spot that outfit in Gail's book?

In How to Marry a Werewolf I feature a number of fashionable items, I thought you might want to see them ahead of time so you can try and spot them as you read.

So with the book releasing this weekend, here you go!

On Faith...

Walking suit, American, circa 1890-95. Wool, silk taffeta.
Mint Museum

1890 ca. Boater Hat English Straw, silk, by Lincoln Bennett and Company's Hats.

Raudnitz & Co. evening dress, 1897
From the Musee Galliera

Punch 1895 - History of the bicycle

Rouff ca. 1897 | French

I love this last one because it so perfectly goes with How to Marry a Werewolf.

  1. Delightful. It's actually rather hard for me to imagine Channing in anything other than military uniform for some reason...
