Shimmering Shades of Serenity

 After this roller coaster year of 2016, everyone could use a beautiful celebration with their loved ones for New Years Eve.  Although I am a sucker for sparkles all year round, December 31st should be glittered and shimmered from everyone in attendance.  I dug deep into my wardrobe and wanted to bring out this 1950s, hand-sewn, embroidered lurex, wiggle dress.  One of my favorites I scored while living in Sweden, it was purchased at the height of my burlesque career, and it was the bombshells and bump-n-grind stars of days gone by that inspired my purchase... as well as today's ensemble.  To add an extra touch of vintage elegance, I paired it with the Chiffon Tea Length Cape in Serenity Blue by Emerald & Palm, with a bursting rhinestone pin on the cape closure, and a vintage, gold, beaded purse.  Here's to a glimmering New Year! 

Below:  Mamie Van Doren.... my forever favorite blonde bombshell, is effortless in her embroidered lurex wiggle dress.  Then Diana Dors wears a heavily beaded gown with blue chiffon train for her album cover, "Swinging Dors."

Below:  Two of my biggest inspirations who inspired me so much during my dancing days, and still do!  Lili St Cyr in a cascading blue cape.  Then, Sherry Britton with a "figure to die for" wears an embroidered gown and chiffon cape.

To a bright 2017!
