Ah, I love whimsical clothing!  And creative design!  And brass buttons!  And trimmings!  Some of these are more preppy than others, but all of them could be worked into a Real World Steampunk Wardrobe.  Hopefully with little feathered fascinators set at a jaunty angle. And tall leather boots. With striped stockings.  Or even just distressed skinny jeans!  But the boots are a must with this look.

I'm tempted!  Anyone else?

A Sampling of Steampunky Jackets

Well, last night I reached a milestone--while I was browsing and saving things to share here, Ebay alerted me that I had reached my quota of saves. Egad! Time to blog and share the lovelies I've been finding with you.

My main hunt at the moment is for jackets and coats. And ooooooh, this is a great time of year for finding beautiful and oh-so Steampunky things.  This post will serve as a sampling!

First, we have the elegant, more dressy jackets:

Then we have an elegant, military-esque jacket:



And then a wealth of casual pseudo-military jackets:

Then we have all the so feminine riding jackets:

Oh, that last one is just gorgeous. 

And finally, a little jacket that was not quite in any of the above categories, but which I really like, and which I think could be a great addition to a Real World Steampunk wardrobe. Particularly mine. Ahem.


As you can see from this post, Ralph Lauren is a fount of good Pseudo-Steampunk pieces this year, esp. jackets. I'll post more specific to RL later!

But to give this artisan credit--when my three Mini Minnies just now walked by the computer and saw those images, they immediately started cooing in delight. I hope they give you a smile today too. : )
