Last night I went to the opening night of Club Burlesk, a new monthly burlesque show presented by Peaches 'n' Gin Burlesque, and decided to wear my Trashy Diva Sweetie dress in the turquoise birds print. I've actually worn this a couple of times before (and I love it though it creases far too easily for my liking) but never taken photos for the blog! Whilst it's not the best dress to go out to sit down in (because of the creasing factor) I did think it was a good one for a burlesque show. It's such a great print and I adore the cut of this dress!
Outfit details: hair flower - ?; dress - Trashy Diva; belt - vintage fair; brooch - etsy; braceletes - op-shop; stockings - Love Kylie; shoes - KMart or Big W.
Oh and my hair is red now! I've been wanting to go red for so very long but I had been dyeing my hair black for a few years and I just couldn't stand the thought of bleaching my hair as much as I'd have to...so I just let it fade/grow out. (As well as a couple of bleach baths just to lighten it that little bit more before I dyed it red.) I'd be more than happy to go through the whole process if anyone wants me to but, to be honest, it was mainly just having patience. Not entirely though.
I clearly don't believe that redheads ought not wear red but I was still surprised at just how much I loved the red flower on my red hair! I'm pretty sure this is nearly the exact same shade of red that my hair was when I first ventured into the world of red hair in...2006.
Oh and I shan't be matching my eyebrows to my hair, either - I love having dark eyebrows too much.
And the show was absolutely amazing. If you are in Adelaide or planning a trip that coincides with one of the performance dates (you can see the dates on the facebook page) and you have $15 to spare then you definitely should go along. I suppose burlesque isn't to everyone's taste but I always have a great time and I love being able to support local talent as well.
