Gail Carriger in Vintage 1960s Purple Dress & Eyeball Necklace ~ Imprudence Tour Outfit & WorldCon


I picked up this purple chiffon pleated day dress on a whim from a local vintage shop for $30, Fashionable Reader. Already it has proved itself a very good investment.

It's super light and thin and packs beautifully. I'm guessing 1970s from the fabric and the way the flowers are sprinkled over it.

On tour I wore it without a hair clip because I forgot the flower back in my hotel room however I remembered the matched eye of Suaron jewelry set that I got at WorldCon in London (from Etsy shop Hibernacula ~ worst most impossible to remember name EVER but boy do I love their stuff, here's their actual website), tobacco skinny belt (vintage, similar $10) and Guess tobacco wedge sandals (similar $30).

At WorldCon


I paired it with cream instead.

That's the same necklace (I REALLY love it), the belt is a modern one (similar reversible $34), the shoes are these kind of patterned scaled Via Spiga peeps with blue heals from yonks ago (similar $46), and that's a vintage bag (similar $44) with a vintage octopus broach pinned to it (similar $19 or here $12).

The scarf, upon which I got many compliments, is here for $14. I love it. I find 32" square is the perfect size both for packing (see this blog post on how to roll vintage) and for doing more elaborate hair scarf ties. There is something about the colors in this particular one that I find goes with most of my wardrobe, and I get tons of complements. (The makers have a whole range of different patterns.)

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