Being Cointreauversial with Dita!

September 19, 2010

This past Friday I was lucky enough to attend one of three of the fabulous Miss Dita Von Teese’s VIP ‘Be Cointreauversial!’ shows at the swanky Crystal Bar in Sydney. I have always loved Dita’s style & often pour over the pages of her book Burlesque & the Art of the Teese when i am looking for a little style inspiration, so it was a dream come true to see the ledgend herself strut her stuff in such an intimate and exclusive showing – her first public performance in Australia! Ms. Von Teese dazzled us with her signature Martini Glass routine, & it was truly a sight to behold; sparkles, feathers, big band sounds & plenty of tease, of course! In my eyes, Dita is everything a woman should be – feminine, sophisticated, graceful & so effortlessly seductive. It was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity & a night I am sure I will never forget!

Atomic Turquoise; the new Retro Red?

August 10, 2010

one word: beyonce. there is no doubt she is super talented, super fabulous and super stunning! when i saw her newest video ‘why don’t you love me’ i got so excited – it has such a fabulous broody retro feel to it & the styling is very authentic. but my absolute favourite part was the shocking turquoise nail varnish beyonce is rockin’. i searched high & low for a similar shade, & FINALLY found a close match. it’s ‘gumdrop’ by orly. now i just need to come up with a cute outfit to compliment my nails. i’m thinking maybe a full skirted shirtwaist dress in atomic turquoise or pixy pink, paired with a neckerchief and seafoam green eyeshadow, perfect for spring.
