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.

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!

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:

Cozy Fur

I’ve been without a good formal jacket for a while, and I’m a bit tired of suffering the cold. This looks suitably cozy, and will will work for just about any occasion.

Burlesque Black

I’ve seen a few burlesque performances recently, and it’s inspired me to re-aquatint myself with some black lace.

Sexy yet not actually showing very much skin … just the way I like it:

This is to make sleeveless dresses look like they have lace sleeves:

This is entirely impractical but so fluffy and cute:

Only Blue

I’m so all over black right now. Blue is about the only colour I’m willing to work in. It is a winner with black, and dammit it suits me.

Weather just got warm. That magic warm where it’s delightful before revolting sweaty summer takes over. I’m going to enjoy it while I can.
