Catching up - part 5
I went to Ghana via London and while I was there I fulfilled one of my dreams - I went to What Katie Did !
The store was a delight to visit!
So pretty and elegant.
And the corsets ... my oh my...
The girls in the shop were ever so helpful.
This is the corset I choose. The Morticia underbust corset.
I was quite excited ;)
The bag it came in.
The instructions ( and boy would I need them once home...) I also bought The Glamour Underbust Girdle, The Glamour Underwired Bra and some seamed stockings !
Then I took a Burlesque class for Jo King who runs The London Academy of Burlesque.
This is Jo when she´s stage ready. And oh my, can this lady s-t-r-u-t-t her stuff! ;)
Her guest teacher was none other than the renown Dirty Martinez !! Who was soo much fun!
Dirty in one of her many glamorous wigs.
I had such a good time! I hope to do a little burlesque myself in 2011. Its part of my 2011 motto "Taking care of me" and a first step in liberating myself at the "grown-up" age of 46 to do what I darn well feel like ! ;)
In London I bought this absolutely gorgeous book about the sensationally beautiful Lana Turner.
This woman loved to dress, loved hats, dancing at nightclubs and its just an inspiration to look at all the pictures of her!
