Candid Cool



In my opinion, Dita Von Teese has come a very long way. I remember when she came out with her burlesque book- i thought it was the most fascinating thing. I was happy to see her develop a career while making the "pinup" look something to be noticed. Nowadays, she's a style icon. She's in magazines, in the news, has the most popular "striptease" show around. I've been following her (not in a creepy sense) since I was a teenager, browsing through her photos to come up with style ideas. Of course, I obviously don't dress this way anymore, that rockabilly look, but I will always love it. Truthfully, I'm much too lazy nowadays to pull this look off. Anyway, some of my favorite looks of Dita's are when she's somewhat casual- well, in her terms...

I love how varied her wardrobe is! She really spans many decades with her clothes and hair. It's nice to see that she mixes true vintage with vintage inspired and neo-vintage.

I too find Dita inspirational and I also love her more 'casual' looks. I just wish I had the ability to wear those SHOES! I swear she and Tina Turner were born to wear heels.
