"The Boss of Burlesque" at the Roxy!

For All My Burlesque DAMES!

Last week I had the pleasure of witnessing the Burlesque greatness that is Dita Von Teese aka "The Boss of Burlesque" live at the legendary Roxy Theatre on Sunset for her "Strip Strip Hooray" tour. As many of you may know, Dita is one of the most recognizable and acclaimed burlesque dancers/performers of our time. I missed her show in Vegas, so I was not gonna miss out on the opportunity to see her right here in LA! It was my first time seeing her in action... and I must say the entire show was great! The costumes were gorgeous, the show was theatrical, and the dance was seductive. Her show definitely incorporates the vintage appeal and style of the original burlesque dancers of the 1950s, which I could definitely appreciate - it was glamorous, flirty, and most of all sexy. I enjoyed the show so much that I attended 2 out of the 3 days the show was running in LA! Ha! She performed on stage 3 separate times: on a 'merry-go-round' horse, in a bath tub (hott!!!!!), and on a bull riding training device. She also brought along 5 special guests/burlesque performers complete with a large, curvy women by the name of "Dirty Martini", a 'little woman' with a Legalize LA theme, and a man with a amputated female mannequin leg - a very diverse and interesting bunch to say the least - LOL!  Overall a great and entertaining show! BRAVO DITA! - a certified DAME chic ;)

Check out some of the Exclusive pics and footage from the show, courtesy of DAME.

*Bigger is Better...*

Who said you have to be a size two to be fashionable??  Although now the world is condition to believe that anyone over a size, let’s say 8 cannot possibly be fashionable lead singer of indie band Gossip proves otherwise.  While her taste may seem unconventional and inappropriate to some here we have exhibit A.  Sometimes it's not about what you wear, but how you wear it, and although some of her outfit selections may be questionable she wears them with such confidence.  She is a perfect example that DAMES come in all shapes and sizes!!!
Even more proof that she's a DAME is this quote...
“I feel sexiest in a little dress. People ask why I pull my dress up on stage – it’s because my dresses aren’t big enough.  That’s why you see my legs all the time.”
*Sighs* A woman after my own heart :)











FOR MY SHOE FREAKS: ARCHITECTUAL SHOES! OOH LA LA!

London based designer Chau Har Le is taking the high heel game to new heights!

Her shoes are like futuristic sculptures that could be featured in Architectual Digest. They are timeless works of art on your feet! You have to see them to believe these gravity defying, psychics inspiring shoes!

"Amongst her materials she introduces an interesting combination of steel, acrylic and wood to contrast with the natural softness and elasticity of leather. Overall, Chau Har Lee's great aim is to create a tension between masculinity and femininity and as a result create an object with a concept of depth but which is, at the same time, highly desirable." - http://www.vogue.it/

GONE VINTAGING!!!

Hello Lovelies!

This weekend was GREAT! I spent almost the entire day "vintaging" (a new word I use when I am shopping for fab vintage finds) with one of my favorite Dames in crime, Courtney Capretta  (A FASHIONISTA AND AMAZING LA DESIGNER!). We attended the "A Current affair: Holiday Eidition" - Pop-up Vintage Marketplace in downtown LA. It was amazing!!!!! I laid my eyes on so many beautiful, mint condition, designer vintage pieces from over 25 different vendors!


I saw everything from Chanel cashmere sweaters, fox fur stoles, Azzadine Alaia floor lenght knit gowns, Sonia Rykiel yellow pencil skirts - and much, much more!!! I had multiple shopgasms - more of my colorful commentary ;) - LOL! There were so many beautiful, one of kind pieces all in one place and all at my little fingertips! Before our departure I walked away with a pair of vintage Porsche Carrera Aviators with interchangeable lenses at a ridiculous price of $95 (wowzers!) and an amazing Ungaro jaket/blazer under $200! It was a great girls day out vintaging!

ARE YOU A SINNER???

On November 25, 2010 Stephen Webster debuted his limited edition "7 Deadly Sins" collection of rings to a small group of people in UK. The collection of rings is amazing! I love the concept! It's a little dark yet still possesses a sense of honesty and truth all the while exhibiting beautiful craftsmanship and attention to detail. Each ring is hand made and will not be sold in stores but rather by personal order only. One thing is for sure, whether you're a religious person, confessed sinner, or neither, one can still find an appreciation for these kick-ass rings! Ha! Check out these beauties:

*Girls who like girls...DJ edition*

I’d like to start by staying NO HOMO!  Although the title does open itself up to that.  It’s the writer in me and I haven’t used a double entendre in a while so now the nerd in me can rest! 
But seriously I am in serious like with my new found DAME DJ Tamara Sky!!!  If you recall I first heard her a couple weeks ago at the Sloppy Seconds party in Atlanta.  She was my favorite DJ of the night and I got a chance to talk to her briefly and she was realllllly sweet! 
I later googled her and found out that she WASN’T Asian, which was a total shocker to me!!  She’s actually Puerto Rican! 
Anyway she’s not your typical DJ in her words via her twitter she’s a:
 “Vampire robot dominazi with amazing ninja powers who is also a zombie with a flesh eating sex demon alter ego.”  Can we say mouth full?! 
But to add to that impressive and extensive resume she can also add cover girl to Playboy Mexico, US playboy centerfold, Miss Puerto Rico Bikini.
But humbly she will be the first to tell anyone:   “I don’t want to be Playboy playmate Tamara Sky,” she said with a smile. ”I'm just DJ Tamara Sky who happened to do Playboy.”
Currently her newest mix “Pussy Violence II” and “Jet Lag” are on HEAVY rotation in my house and they should be in yours J

 DJ Tamara Sky gladly inducted into the DAME family!!
