Dita’s Travel Essentials

I’m not a huge fan of Dita Von Teese, but I know a lot of you are.  I love her style, and her classic beauty, I’m just not a fan of her career choice, but that’s another conversation.  I’ve mentioned before that I saw her at the Rose Bowl swap meet once, and she is just as beautiful and stunning in person.  
W Magazine asked her to share her travel essentials, since she’s on the go so much.  I love what she shared.  Check it out.

“I use all Globe-Trotter suitcases; they look chic and classic.  Most of my burlesque costumes travel in Globe-Trotter cases that are color-matched to each outfit.”–Dita Von Teese
“Marc Jacobs sent me this Louis Vuitton hatbox when I was performing at Vuitton parties in Paris and Las Vegas.”–Dita Von Teese
“This diary is Smythson–I get all my journals and datebooks there.  I like to write about travels, and I find it very useful to look back on what I wrote to see where I was both geographically and emotionally.  I always keep it in a locked safe, because, as Mae West once said, ‘Keep a diary, and someday it may keep you.'”–Dita Von Teese
“I write a lot of thank-you notes–and love letters when I have someone special in my life.  I adore very fine papers, which I have custom made for me, and I write with my Montblanc fountain pen, which has burgundy, rose-scented ink.”–Dita Von Teese
“I wear opera-length leather gloves with just about everything–I love fetishistic elegance.”–Dita Von Teese
“It’s perfectly acceptable to touch up your makeup at the dinner table if you have a gorgeous powder compact.  This one is from the forties and different fashions of the era pictured on it.  It’s quite a large compact–the size of the puff always gets comments!”–Dita Von Teese
“I always have at least three red lipsticks in my handbag–usually a bright red, a cherry red, and a deep ruby red.  This is one of my favorites, Dior Roulette Red.”–Dita Von Teese

  1. The thing about Dita is that she just doesn´t give a damn about what people say which is what makes her so great. :)

  2. I just happened upon your blog and its fabulous! I agree with your thoughts on Ms. Dita as well, but I have to say her packing is quite classy! I wish I had a set of fancy suitcases color coordinated with my clothes, maybe someday :) I hope you have a wonderful week and Happy Monday!

Mimi is getting more and more senile as time goes on...worried about her and each day is hard to watch her get older. #Blondeepisodes #yorkie #yorkielove #appreciateeachday  Great view heading back from #solvang along the #101 #Blondeepisodes #summerstyle #summer #vacation #ocean #view
