tulleandboots 's Thoughts:

This Halloween I decided to go for a steampunk kind of costume—and didn’t even have to buy anything for it!

I recently thrifted this velvet corset vest for $2.50, and it worked perfectly over a white blouse. I wore my crazy striped zipper dress from Forever 21 as a skirt, and put my black tulle skirt under it to act as a petticoat. I added some vintage touches, such as my vintage lace up boots (purchased at Camden market in London), my vintage bowler hat, and some vintage jewelry.

I also paired it with my new vintage coat (which I thrifted for $5!), which has a full skirt bottom so it worked perfectly with the poofy skirt aspect of my costume!

I’d probably wear a more toned down version of this outfit on a regular day.
