For the first night of WorldCon I wore my new purple dress from the previous blog. But for the first offical day of the convention I wore this favorite vintage 1950s blue and white day dress.
It has a cute little jacket too, but I didn't get a picture of it at this event. Here it is at Comic Con, 4 years ago pre-reack-reduction.
Believe it or not I weigh less in these Comic Con photos, just goes to show what a little less boob will do for a girl's figure. Now where was I?
So I am wearing it with a little flower hair band (similar $18
), faux pearl set (similar $10
), vintage white leather gloves (similar $29
), and some Mia nomad flats (discontinued, similar $23
