I was dj'ing a week ago @FLIRT!, a party that combines burlesque and dance music. I was playing electro swing, but there were also house, indie and disco dj's that night. And the combination worked! We had a fun night...
That wonderful vintage blouse i found while dumpster diving. It amazes me what people throw away.
The black leather pencil skirt is a fleamarket find.
By the way, how do you like my hair colour? I've stopped using strong chemicals and started to use natural henna ( i used MacUrths henna but next time i might try something else). That shade of red is just what i wanted! I still have to practise a bit more to get the best result, but for the first time i think i did a pretty good job. I've stopped dyeing my hair nearly 3 months ago before my first henna experiment. (You can imagine how my hair looked with dark roots.. :D)
This picture below shows my natural hair colour. I'm 15 in this photo.

The main reasons for me to stop dyeing my hair were the health risks.
(Research in Sweden suggested that chemicals found in colouring products might damage the immune system, triggering rheumatoid arthritis. Some chemicals have already been shown to cause bladder cancer. Source)
As you can see, my hair is not always in perfect order...haha! Dancing leads to messy hair, and sometimes to something else too...
That hat is, ofcourse, a Fiona Timantti creation.
