Pink Poison

I recently had the pleasure of working with the insanely talented Tristan Risk. As you may already know, she is one of my favorite debaucherous darlings and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to outfit her in something special. I have been wanting to pattern a burlesque bustle skirt for some time, so creating a custom creation for Little Miss Risk made perfect sense.

I also threw  in an exclusive Swarovski bat necklace and the Vegas inspired “Showgirl Flower” hair clip. Tristan added a couple of her own pieces to the ensemble and the result is nothing short of exquisite. I am eternally grateful to Shimona Henry of Pin-Up Perfection Photography for documenting this delightful collaboration. Swing by her site to witness some truly awe inspiring imagery.

Go ahead, be a tease.

Unlike much of today’s fashion, vintage wardrobe maintained a delightful balance between sex appeal and class.  I fell in love with retro fashion many years ago upon realizing that the perfect dress resembles a magic potion.  The right outfit can instill confidence in the lucky lady who wears it as well as mesmerize those who lay their eyes upon her.  The appeal of retro style for me has always been the flirtatious, feminine nature.  Fashion has gone through some treacherous phases, but mid-century chic still holds true as the era of celebrating classic curves and seductive silhouettes.

Tease dress - Mini HearsesOur new “Tease” dress was designed to put the wiggle in your walk and ensure that you will be the belle of the ball.  This sassy little number is a triple threat complete with a sweetheart neckline, bold contrast belt, and stretch twill pencil skirt.  You can’t go wrong with the winning combination of vibrant colors, polka-dots, and spooky prints!  Our “Vegas Vixen Flower” hair clip is a delightful accessory and looks smashing when paired with the “Movie Monsters” colorway.

Tease dress - Movie MonstersWhile on the subject of being a tease, be sure to check out our awesome interview with burlesque bad girl, Little Miss Risk.  We had a blast discussing her role in the horror hit “American Mary”, antique erotica, and why she should be on a hidden camera show.

In closing, just remember what someone wise once said, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it”!
