affordable neo-victorian attire

I just found the best steampunk clothing webstore ever.

Check out Clockwork Couture, a clothing store selling predominantly steampunk and neo-Victorian apparel and accessories:

But it gets better. Usually specialty stores jack up their prices because one can't get the type of clothes they sell anywhere else.  But not Clockwork Couture.  Many of their clothing is affordable for meager budgets like mine, a rarity for a fashion statement that is still relatively new and won't go mainstream in a while, if ever. There are a few blouses and shirts under $40, and some under $30.  Sure, blouses are in that price range, but that's unheard of for a store that specializes in the steampunk genre.

I've eyed up a few blouses, and may get either one of these two.  They're truly neo-Victorian, the type of blouses you're not going to find at Macy's:

There's even a Clearance section.  This skirt would have been mine if there were any left in my size:

  1. Clockwork couture don't make any of their own clothes, they're just re distributors and they're more expensive then the original places. They get a lot of their stuff from fanplusfriend. I'd only buy from there if you can't find the original source.
