Burlesque!

 

Last Thursday night Pema and I drank a few glasses of wine and took a swift uber to the Charles Hotel in North Perth. A friend of ours was performing in the Fresh Faced Follies Grad show with Sugar Blue Burlesque. The first burlesque show I’ve ever seen!

Islish* was really amazing in the slinky rendition of pink panther, I saw a whole new side of her (ha ha). Actually, all of the dancers were great and the MC was hilarious, successfully winding up the rowdy crowd. Such a fun night and on the train home we ran into my friend Will! Fuun.

I thought a fur coat would be appropriate for the occasion, this subtly striped number belongs to my housemate, she got it from an op shop a few years ago. I don’t generally have a problem with wearing a bit of fur or leather as I eat meat, but I do prefer if I can get the items second hand like with this coat, my boots and my leather jacket.

Saturday

city 1

It was my dads 50th birthday the other day. He’s normally a very hard person to shop for but for some reason this year was the easiest it has ever been. We ventured down into the mens department of David Jones in the city and left a little while later with a thick dark grey Country Road scarf (~ $60) and an ink blue corduroy Sportscraft button up shirt (~$120), both items happened to be on sale which was a huge bonus. I think we were subconsciously inspired by the sales assistants down there, they are impeccably dressed. It’s actually insane, like Chuck and Nate in the early episodes of Gossip Girl – only more slick.

It was a really nice, chilly day to be out, the city was busy but not packed and for once we’d all managed to coordinate our schedules. I wore my Zara culottes ($40) and a black turtleneck and semi-heeled leather boots, and while Pema was grabbing a coffee we took a snap in this cool hidden alleyway.
