Dita <3 <3 <3

I’m going to see Dita Von Teese in Sydney and need a suitably fabulous dress to wear.

It’s a nod to my vintage loving past but still suits my gothy sensibilities.

I’m about to go on holiday to Melbourne and I’m having the ‘I have nothing to wear’ crisis. I’ve decided that this top is just what I need:

Also, I’ve been looking at this dress for months and it’s just appealing for some reason:

All the major brands have discontinued their lip stain pens, which are the best, non-drying lip colours ever :(

Luckily, Stargazer makes them:

Work It Out

I’ve been enjoying taking dance classes for the last 6 months, and I’ve decided I really should start getting into some appropriate sportswear.

Sports bra with a really nice back detail:

CorgBot

Sven loves his zombiecorg shirt so much that he’s going to wear it out in no time. ‘Give a Fluff’ only release shirts in limited batches, and he liked this one, so I thought I’d better get an order in!

I got inspired after going to a few burlesque shows and seeing the gentleman wearing wonderful glam Chinese satin blazers and waistcoats and the like. I thought perhaps Sven would concede to wearing a velvet smoking jacket as a comfy-yet-stylish burlesque outfit. After researching intensively and finding the right one in the perfect colour, in his size, at a good price, he said he wouldn’t wear one :/ :/ :/

So this is the compromise: It’s velvet, but understated and not showy. Very Sven. I like the outfit they had styled it up with I bought the whole shebang.

Witch Dreams

So there’s this weird store called ‘Lee’s Dragon Dreams’ that has a very unique selection of clothes (which is striking in a time when everyone has the same stuff from the same brands). I’ve finally got it together and done a big order.

I’ve kind of been at the online shopping game for a while now, and one of my biggest red flags when purchasing is Asian models. As in every one of the marketing photos features a tiny adorable girl. This leads to buying clothes labelled with a wide variety of sizes that never match up to what I expect.

I’ve been put off buying from ChicStar for this exact reason. I of course want to buy clothes that will fit me.

But I’ve given in because this dress is just lovely:

Retro Glamour

The days of floral dresses may be long gone, but I do love a 50s silhouette.

This will be glorious for wearing to burlesque nights with some sparkly rhinestones:
