Gail Carriger in Retro 1930s Silver Flapper Cocktail Gown at SDCC
For Friday evening of SDCC I wore one of my more comfortable dresses - a late 20s style flapper number.
Because it's not fitted and I'm a curvy lady, this isn't the most flattering of gowns, but it sure is comfy. There isn't much like it out there to recommend you buy (if you see something like this and it fits, my advice is to snap it up, always elegant and timeless.) However, there are a whole lot of fun 20s style dresses lurking about Amazon these days, here are some options. If I were in the market for a new cocktail dress I'd go for one of these.
- I'm wearing a scarf tied about my hair in the 30s style, this is my favorite size head scarf $10.
- Those are cut jet earrings with a matched tassel necklace (similar $20).
- Opera length black satin vintage gloves (similar $8).
- Flat silver sandals from Aerosoles $30 (I LOVE these and have them in multiple colors). (I basically live in Aerosole sandals all summer $30-60 many colors and styles.) Err on the smaller side if you're an in-between.
