Dita brought out my love for clothes and makeup- and we looked great together, two misfits from the Midwest who like to play dress-up. She always made me happy when she looked like a villain. And she gave me Lily, my beautiful cat, and for that I’ll always have some love in my heart for that fashionable bitch.

Check out this number from The Dolly Sisters this is NOTORIOUS for inspiring Dita Von Teese’s Powder Puff Compact Number. If you have a quick eye you can see some similar costumes from both Dita and the Vonturage <3
I recently attended a burlesque show starring Dita Von Teese in West Hollywood. No cameras were allowed inside, but I thought I’d share some of my blurred memories from the event. One of the highlights was “Dirty Martini”, a performer with no shame and a unique set of skills. Loved it.
