Today is a beautiful day! I’m always so inspired when the sun is shining and the air is fresh. I was able to sneak in a little park time with Trixie before coming to the studio and I made sure to wear an appropriate summer dress for the day. This H&M dress makes me feel like Sophia Loren and the sheer layers flow while I walk (I can’t help but add a little more wiggle to my step). My Tom shoes are my best summer purchase so far and they go with about everything and I can walk everywhere in them. I belt almost every dress I wear because I’m always conscious that my petite figure gets lost in the layers of fabric. Under it all, I’m wearing simple cotton La Senza underwear and the Josephine bra from What Katie Did – perfect for everyday with a little sex appeal. I always make sure to wear cute, full underwear with flowy dresses because you never know when you’ll have a marilyn moment.
To keep me going during the day, I’m listening to the Eels, my new favourite band. I just love this song Prizefighter: http://youtu.be/eoNx6X4-5Tw
I’m going to Las Vegas next week to cheer on Cherry Typhoon & Scarlett James at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. I haven’t been in years and am just thrilled to be attending this year. Surprisingly my favourite thing from my last trip was the food…. my god the food is good! I’m still on a super restricted diet but I know I can find some really healthy meals there. I can’t wait to fill my days with shopping and going to see shows. I also get to wear my most flamboyant outfits and am looking forward to packing some of my most eccentric pieces.
When looking for outfit inspiration, I love visiting Vintage Vandal’s blog and for lingerie The Daily Knicker. I think its important to never copy a specific style but just take inspiration and make it your own. We’re not meant to look the same, act the same or think the same so why should we wear the same things? My saviour with shopping and putting together outfits is my tailor. With her by my side, I can push my style boundaries and try new silhouettes knowing that they will always fit like a glove. It really doesn’t matter how expensive your clothes are, its the fit that counts. Same goes for lingerie. You never want to wear anything too tight or too loose as you’ll hate the way your figure looks. I say stop fighting your body and embrace your best assets. There is so much beauty in Asymmetry and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I hope you have a beautiful day!
