Yes, November can be a tough month - grey, wet, cold and generally not that sexy - so we’re bringing glamour to the fore with some stories to inspire you to burlesque like a diva.
First up - Dita von Teese teaches us to find burlesque bargains at car boot sales!
Dita Von Teese went bric-a-brac shopping with LA journal Racked and we were so thrilled by her hints and tips that we decided to share them with you.
First off, what did Dita wear to shop? A vintage 1950s black skirt and hat, Marc Jacobs flats, a Fifi Chacnil bodysuit, Miu Miu vintage sunglasses and MAC lipstick in Good Kisser. I'm carrying a 1950s lucite purse with a vintage polka dot scarf.
Second - what bargains did she spot? A 1940s embroidered hanky, a 1950s negligee, six green glass champagne coupes, a 1930s-40s card table, a box of vintage hostess place setting cards and a 100-year-old German stein, amongst other things.
Finally - what’s her take on vintage fashion? She goes up and down every single aisle, rejects anything reproduction and has somebody with her to spot things she misses - on this occasion, her interior designer. She’s currently focused on finding antique lingerie and vintage underwear to inspire her own lingerie line and she likes to find thing that fit with a life lived in technicolour or, as she put it, “I want to write about glamour that wasn't dependent on how pretty you are. It's more interesting to turn yourself into a Bird of Paradise.”Read More
