Shop Like Dita Von Teese
Dita Von Teese often picks up bargains at vintage fairs.
The burlesque dancer, who is famed for her retro-inspired wardrobe and glamorous look, is a regular visitor to the Santa Monica Vintage Expo, where she loves finding classic items of second hand clothing and accessories.
"The Santa Monica Vintage Expo happens twice a year and is my favorite vintage fair, with the best dealers from all over the country and good deals to be had. Definitely visit Connie Parente for the best vintage designer jewelry."
As well as markets, Dita is also a fan of vintage stores and often stocks up when she's in Los Angeles: "Doris Raymond's vintage store on La Brea is my favorite LA vintage store. From 1940's beaded black crepe dresses to coveted 90s Thierry Mugler suits, I always come out of her store with oodles of gorgeousness!"
While Dita often admits to being a fan of Christian Louboutin footwear, she often finds classic shoes in vintage stores. "A girl has to have a few pairs of sensible shoes amongst the Louboutins, so I go for classics, with faithful '40s style wedges. These were especially made for us early 90s swing dancers, so they have various styles, from non-slip sticky soles to smooth sliding classic leather soles in a variety of colors and styles."
