Gail Carriger Black Ruffles & Striped Swiss Waist Steampunk at the Alaska Steamposium 2017
For the second day of the Alaska Symposium I wore my favorite waist cincher, or Swiss waist, over a black evening dress.
That's a little gold meets brown buckram facinator that travels well so I wear it a lot, discontinued. If I had to buy a replacement I'd go for this one, $9.
The dress is 1970s (1930s revival) and I ADORE it. It's one of my most flattering pieces. I brought so I could wear it as a dress for dinner one night and under this corset on another night. It has a pussycat bow at the neck.
I'm wearing it over a Max Studio silk cross over full sleeved blouse (similar $16).
The waist cincer is from Dark Garden. (Similar costume version for $30.)
Gold steampunk earrings (similar for $25) & vintage necklace (heirloom) and the obligatory pen necklace $20.
That's a little gold shrug I got on a whim from Ross for like $15. Similar $17-23.
Retro Rack is also on facebook where I post additional images and fashion thoughts.
