What I Wore 30.11.08

December already! Eeee!

This is what I wore last night to the Sugar Blue Burlesque show. The theme was "art", and had Botticelli , Warhol, & even Jackson Pollock inspired dances! My favourite dance was the Warhol one (I'm guessing it was "inspired" by Warhol, because it had a mod theme and they had the mod signs all over their costume! And Mia Wallace wigs! It has totally re-inspired my desire to do the burlesque classes they offer, I keep reading about them on kittentails and they sound like so much fun!

It was definitely my favourite one I've seen so far, probably because I was in the company of two lovely blogging ladies, Em & Liv! I was so excited (and super nervous!) to meet them, and they were both as lovely & gorgeous as they appear on their blogs!

Dress: Temt//Flower headband: Splendour in the Grass stall//Shoes: Sportsgirl

Three burlesque beauties:

I saw the dress in a Shop Til You Drop last month and have been wanting it ever since! When my sister was visiting me up in Perth I finally bought it. It's so fun to wear, I just want to shimmy whenever I put it on! I think it will have to be my New Year's Eve dress. Speaking of which, what is everyone doing for it? In Perth, I haven't heard anything except for a 50's and 60's themed night but it's at a sports bar (the name escapes me) and I don't know how fun that would be...

And I also bought these because I couldn't resist (maybe I can use them when I am a burlesque superstar. I was trying to think of a burlesque name but I am not that creative!):

Also, today (December 1) is World AIDS Day. In Australia, HIV and AIDS rates are increasing, and the message of the 20th anniversary of World AIDS Day is to "Enjoy Life. Take Control. Stop HIV & AIDS". If you're out & about today please buy a red ribbon to show your support!
