Its all about Burlesque

On Saturday, I went to Dublin to visit a very good friend of mine and she brought me to my first burlesque show. (Long overdue it was)  The show was amazing, plenty of talented acts, lots of dancing and laughs. I cant wait to go to another one. (ciara you have been warned)

Naturally it made me  want to gather a collection of vintage burlesque photographs, which is exactly what I did for your viewing pleasure. They do not disappoint. I could look at pictures like these all day, (because they are fabulous NOT because Im a perv)

I was going to give a brief history of burlesque, but then I realized, there was a lot of info and I didn’t want to do it half assed. I will however give you this link, which is pretty much all you could or would like to know about the history of this wonderfully entertaining art form. I guess this was kind still kind of a half assed post. Apologies. My sister (who I haven’t seen in 2 years) is arriving in a few hours and Im rather distracted! Eeek!

Happy Tuesday all, I hope to do a vintage outfit post with my sis while she is here, so keep a look out! X
