For the Love of Burlesque: Part 5

If you don't know who Dita Von Tesse is, I fear you may be living under a rock. She is the most popular / most well known / most mainstream burlesque performer and Pin Up model today.
But I have to say ... Mainstream, in my book, just means that she's a smart business woman on top of a sexy superstar. She took her act and made it into a Vegas worthy event, to the point where she has almost become a household name. But what I love best about Dita is the fact that she is the epitome of class.

She dresses like a woman! Shows off her best assets like a pro. Ooozes sex appeal ... but with a graceful, lady-like demeanor.
She's not covered in tattoos, which is awesome as far as I'm concerned. I love my tattoos, and those of my friends ... but I completely and totally appreciate the fact that you don't have to cover yourself in Ink to be a modern Pin Up. She also taught me that it's OK to have ivory white skin. I used to think I had to live in a tanning booth, but now, I wish I had never discovered one in the first place!

I've yet to have the pleasure of watching her famous Martini performance live ... but that IS on my list of things to do before I die. Because, as far as I'm concerned ... this is the most beautiful woman alive today. Do you agree??
And this will lead me to my next topic for tomorrow ... Something my friend Boozie pointed out yesterday, that is OH SO appropriate a question to pose. More on that later. For now, enjoy a little Dita for your workday :)


  1. Did you see her interview in In Style magazine? It has pictures of her beautifuuuul home! Fabulous peek into her life. :) I have the magazine in case you missed it!

  2. I was just about to say what the comment above said, I drolled over her shoe closet.
