But enough about the event--on to the clothes! I wanted a bombshell dress and I ended up channeling Rita Hayworth in "Gilda".
Gilda is my favorite femme fatale so I'm glad I got to pay homage to her with my outfit. I'd wanted elbow-length gloves, but the vintage ones I found were a bit out of my budget. And you can't see it, but the stockings have a backseam. The earrings are vintage but everything else was new. The dress was a birthday present to myself.
What I loved about The Diamond Ace is that everyone went all-out with their outfits, like this woman:
We saw a great tango performance and two burlesque performers and the lovely Medianoche left with a piece of my heart in her g-string. She was an incredible performer and so, so nice.
All in all, the evening was a smashing success and I can't wait for the next Dances of Vice event.
