3 Simple Ways to Add Glamour into Your Life

Glamour isn’t about how much money you spend, or having all the latest trends. Glamour is about creating a polished look with self confidence to back it up. Creating a well-curated and glamorous look may seem like a big undertaking, so to get you started, I’ve highlighted three of my favorite ways to spruce up a look into a glorious affair. Hope you enjoy, and have fun experimenting with your own personalized style.

Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra

Growing up and to this day one of my favorite movies to watch is Cleopatra with Elizabeth Taylor. The costumes, headdress, and sets were absolutely gorgeous and turned out to be fabulous costume inspiration for my burlesque acts. Here are a few of my favorite looks from this film. Which one is your favorite?

November Craziness

November has been a time of learning and and experience. I walked away from Burlycon feeling more connected with my art form than I ever have. I left with a renewed sense of inspiration and applied everything that I was able to absorb in that 4 day intensive into my show this past Friday.

The result? I feel like that has been my best performance to date. Although I had a few costume malfunctions, who hasn’t, I worked them into the choreography without missing a beat. I went onto the stage with the intention of giving my all to the audience, and hope that I was able to show the passion which I feel for burlesque to them.

If you didn’t get the chance to catch my performance, hopefully I will get to perform those acts again soon! They are definitely up there in my favorites.

So now I will leave you with a little elegant inspiration. I’ve been super attracted to the color orange lately, so here is a sneak peak into what I find exquisite at the moment. For more inspiration boards, check out my pinterest.

Burlesque in Holiday Spirits

When I started burlesque I was never one to add sequins or fringe, or anything very elaborate into my everyday dress. Although I love the glamour and glitz or being on stage, the lights reflecting into the audience off of your meticulously placed rhinestone, I was more for dressing down when I got off stage.

Even now, with the demands of my everyday life, my less than ample time to get ready in the morning, and all my extra money going into costumes rather than an extravagant wardrobe for business casual attire, I’m very okay with days of dressing down. But recently, I have found myself being pulled closer to the glimmer in my everyday wear. It’s still almost impossible to get me to wear heels if I’m not onstage, but there is something about adding glamour into your everyday life that makes you feel, unstoppable.  It’s like that moment, when you are getting ready for the day, and you put on a sexy matching bra and undie set, and even though no one else in the room knows what you are wearing, you tend to look at people with the “Oh yea, you don’t even know what you’re missing” face.

So here are some holiday dresses that are absolutely to die for! Want to stop a few hearts when you walk into a room, while blinding everyone in the process, well let me point you in the right direction.
