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!

 Having my morning shake! #shakeology #chocolate #beachbody #cleaneating #feelgood #yummy #banana #tervis #Blondeepisodes   Good morning! #ootd #outfit #wiw #instafashion #teacherstyle #iteachhighschool #springstyle #castyle #fringe #kimono #forever21 #bootbarn #oldgringoboots  Loving my #shakeology so much that I decided to become a coach. If you need to order any of the yummy shakes or great products #beachbody has to offer let me know. The major thing for me and the shakes is that I have no overwhelming sweet cravings while taking them! Thanks @marti_ascencio and @lindsy_lavalle for getting me started. I feel great!   Need some advice: first try of IV from Wed was in the side of my wrist and made me instantly nauseous and made my hand feel tingly up to my fingers. She had to take it out and then they put it in my hand. Now I'm having tightness and a sharp shooting pain up to my two fingers and makes me feel sick to put pressure on that spot on my wrist. Ever heard of this? Maybe she hit a nerve? It hurts and is getting more uncomfortable. Any idea what I can do? Is something that goes away after time? #Blondeepisodes #medicalquestion #postop #iv #pain
