GIRLS ON BOARD


That's me and my new (very snug) dress on last weeks burlesque cruise which was a total blast and success!
(The cruise. And the dress :)

Photo by Frej Linna.

The venue was a mix of hula girls, mermaids and sailors. Paula was dressed as a lobster girl in all- red from top to toe, lashes as well. (Even though she actually turned out a crab-girl since she never found a lobster for her hat as planned but had to use a glittered crab instead. Not that it really matters though, we just thought lobster girl had a nicer sound to it.) I wasn't really dressed as anything particular, just inspired by the pacific theme of the night. And it doesn't show in any pictures but I had matched my hair flowers with my dark yellow heels. (I just had to point that out since it looked very good and so I'd be able to sleep better at night. Phew, good, now you all know.)

Oh well, now I'll start preparing for a solo act show I'll do tonight. If you like me, and unlike most others, spend Midsummer in town why don't spend it at Bar Loose with some psychobilly and burlesque?
Either way and anyhow, for those of you that celebrate Midsummer's Day, have a great one!

i love how the dress turned out! you have inspired me to find some of my old bohemian ("hippie") fabrics and make a halter style dress too. just curious, did you use a pattern or eye it? i bet the yellow and purple were beautiful together, lovely!

Thanks everyone!

Darla:RetroWays : I made it

Lace : I just eye it out on the fabric and may check some details form other dresses. I've never actually used a pattern, not sure if I'd manage to sew according to one :D You have to post pics of your altered dresses then!

MartiniOnTheRocks said...

absolutely adorable... i love everything about ur look: tha hair, the make up, dress! wow!!!
where can i find the sponge rolls, for the victory rolls?

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

MartiniOnTheRocks : thank you! Since I always picurl my hair before it gets really volumnious and stays well in place for vicroty rolls, so I don't use sponge rolls/hair rats for that. But I do use them for other do's, I foudn mine on ebay, by searching on everything from roll, bun and rat!

whitderr said...

I'm so jealous! You're gorgeous and live an awesome life! I do have one suggestion, maybe you could do a tutorial on makeup? Your makeup always looks flawless!
