Another Steampunk inspired outfit today. Although my tutor said it looked 80s pirate. But in my opinion, that's a compliment, anyway.
Brown glass bead necklace, white frilly shirt, blue velvet waistcoat, penny cuff bracelets and knee high boots all thrifted. I got the boots about 11 years ago, maybe, when they were quite a bit bigger than my feet, and now they are just about the right size.
The shirt is pretty old, too, maybe 8 years old? When I got it, it didn't have any laces, so I put the maroon ones in, they were from some hair thing I just had lying around. I like the look.
The shorts are fake leather shorts I got for $10 at one of those discount clothing stores. As soon as I saw them I knew I was going to wear them with a frilly shirt.
It's actually meant to be Summer, but it was so cold and windy today it was almost like Winter again, so I was able to wear this without sweltering to death.
I'm actually reading a Steampunk novel at the moment, Liberator by Richard Harland, it's the sequel to his novel, World Shaker, which I read a while back. I might post a review on my other blog, Roses and Vellum, when I finish it. I can say that the first was really clever and totally blew me away!
