Monday Muse - Dita Von Teese

Definition : A person or personified force who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist.

For as long as I can remember, I've had style muses/icons. I used to fill old notebooks with pictures of stylish women, old movie stars, musicians, basically anyone who inspired me! Nowadays, I have Pinterest boards and books all about those woman. I wanted to start a new weekly post on this blog all about some of the most stylish woman. And because it will always be on a Monday, hopefully it will give you some weekly inspiration!

I wanted to start off the Monday Muse series with one of my all time favorites, Dita Von Teese. 

Dita is a burlesque queen and a vintage goddess. In a current world filled with woman that look like the Kardashians, Dita is a breath of fresh air. She is classy and sexy in such an effortless way, which is a huge style inspiration. 

Dita is close friends with shoe god, Christian Louboutin, and he has created many pairs custom heels for her (soooooo lucky). Even though she's not always wearing vintage, she takes contemporary designs and gives them her own personal style touch. 

Dita also designs for her own lingerie line, which let me tell you, is absolutely beautiful. As well as having her own clothing line, signature fragrances and a few books! This is also another reason why she is one of my muses, she is a hardworking badass! 

Her most recent book is called Your Beauty Mark: The Ultimate Guide To Eccentric Glamour (buy it here). It is a bible full of beauty tips for the girl who is an individual. Not only does the book have the most incredible photos, it also has amazing stories and such good makeup and beauty tips! I own the book and reread it constantly! 

You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.
