I started dressing vintage when I was a teenager because I didn’t have money for designer clothes.

I want to be an artist, not an erotic freak. I don’t want to be sold to the public as a celluloid aphrodisiac

I’m not intimidated by anyone. Everyone is made with two arms, two legs, a stomach and a head. Just think about that.

-Josephine Baker (1906-1975)

Baker was such a sensation then and will continue to inspire forever!

― Dita Von Teese

Dita doesn’t only have the looks but she’s also writing a beauty book which I am really looking forward to reading and reviewing. It’s due to be released November 5, 2013, still some time, but much anticipated!

I will be honest, I haven’t picked up her other books, Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese & Dita: Stripteese, but I am looking in to catching up in the meantime.
