A Very Steampunk PartyPosted: May 1, 2011
Yesterday was Debbi’s birthday, but it was also book sale + diner Saturday. I knew I was going to dress up all steampunk for the party (we were going to the bar converted from Edison’s old factory, after all), but I didn’t want to lug around a bunch of clothes with me in the morning, so I had to find a look that would translate into “steampunk” with a few simple changes.
So I went with a Roaring Twenties-inspired outfit in the morning…
Blouse: from home
Skirt: thrifted, remixed
Flats & Cloche: Payless, remixed
Cameo necklace: Forever21
… and La Belle Époque at night:
Add a blazer (thrifted), a pair of boots (Journee via Amazon, remixed) and a fascinator (Icing), and I’m ready to party as a steampunk socialite! (It’s Debbi’s birthday, so I let her put my hair down. Enjoy people, because this might be the only time you get to see it.)
Debbi and Emma were equally fabulous:
We then met up at the Edison bar. And the place is, I’m telling you, awesome. There are screens on the wall where they show silent movies, and a lady with green fairy wings going around selling absinthe.
And here are the rest of the party:
Oh and before I forget, this is my birthday present for Debbi:
It’s a shirt that says “Keep Calm and Then Exterminate Exterminate Exterminate.” It’s perfect for an Anglophile and Doctor Who fan.
