Gail Carriger's Bay Area Book Festival Outfits ~ Gold Dress meets Red, Black, and Leopard
My dear fashionable reader here is what I wore to the Bay Area Book Festival in Berkeley California over the weekend.
Gold eShakti cocktail dress with custom modifications. (I added short sleeves and a wide V neckline.) I love the deep gores on the skirt and the sash belt. This is an old gold color (better on my skin then true gold or white gold) and it has a kind of peacock pattern with threads of black, blue, and pink throughout. I adore it. It looks great with a wide range of accessories. It's the only eShakti dress I've bought since the Rack Reduction, and it isn't a perfect fit, but I do adore it.

I paired it with a dark tan AM CLOTHES Flower and Feather Hair Clip Fascinator $15. They have a number of different styles and colors. I have a couple of them and they pack nicely flat so I love them. Good for day or evening. I added steampunk earrings (gift from a fan, similar $20), gold gloves (similar $5), and robin's egg blue 1940s style platform sandals from Miz Mooz (discontinued, similar $36).

My daytime look for Sunday's panel was this eShakti black poof skirt (discontinued, similar $35), and a long ago purchased red top from H&M. I paired it with Guess black wedge sandals with leopard heels (similar $27), vintage leopard bucked bag (similar $35) and a leopard skinny belt (similar $9).
On top I am wearing leopard gloves (similar $15), a vintage leopard pillbox hat, and steampunk earrings (similar $17).
