It’s Thoughtful Third Thursday, and I actually managed to participate!
I’ve been reading Heartless, the fourth installment of the steampunk-supernatuaral-victorian Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger, and it continues to be hilarious and very entertaining. There’s always a mystery to solve, hysterical victorian dialogue, and lots and lots of tea in these books; what’s not to enjoy?!
Here’s my take on Alexia – since I own no bustles or corsets, I had to center this look on the hat (a nod to Genevieve, though mine’s not enhanced with gadgets or weaponry, alas). I’ve owned this one for years but hardly every wear it, and this seemed like a perfectly good excuse. I thought Alexia would be a fan of the silk elephant print peplum top, so that was the next addition. The blazer just seemed to pull it all together. 🙂
