Oh *sigh*, I am missing out on Dita Von Teese’s burlesque performance tonight. She’s at the Roxy here in Los Angeles and I did not, silly me, buy tickets. It’s sold out. But I can celebrate this Vixen du Jour, the Cointreauversial GoddessMargadita
Last I saw DitaCatherine D’lish
She is truly a glamourous beauty du jour, and carries herself with such elegance. Tonight, her last show in Los Angeles, at The Roxy Theatre, performing/starring in Strip Strip Hooray.
As a former burlesque dancer (myself) and in the same style, Dita inspires me to put back on my dancing heels (it’s never too late although I’m two years older than she). Yes, I have contemplated the possibility of getting back on that stage, just for fun, but for my own self-inflicted doubts and the passage of time, birthing three children and all that does to the body. Corsets help, however. Along with a little champagne and a good sense of humor.
What I loved most about the burlesque show I saw and loved way back in the summer of 2006 (perhaps?) –I count back years by the number of children I have had, and remember (like a mama) it was the summer, when my second child was a baby, and gosh darn it I cannot dredge the information out of the Google search engine, so forgive my vagueries– but— (deep breath) as I was saying, my favorite act was Dita and Catherine D’lish in the dueling martini glasses finale.
I love Dita Von Teese for her graceful beauty, her glamour, her spirit, and for being the burlesque goddess that she is. What a dame! What a vixen! Va-va-voom. Dita.
