The Showgirl next door!

Yes, you know who i'm talking about!
Dita von Teese
"I own vintage lipstick tubes and refill them with my
favorite color, Russian Red by MAC.
First I put the lipstick in the freezer and then into the Tubes!"

 InStyle Magazine took a visit to the home of burlesque queen Dita Von Teese for their February issue, giving readers a peek inside her beautiful vintage home which is amazing, including the pastel pink kitchen and luscious wallpaper. 
My favorite part of the interview is when she mentions she owns lipstick tubes and refill them with Russian Red by MAC. She is very clever and I guess no-one else would come up with this idea.

She's always been about getting the look for less, vintage doesn't has to been expensive. She finds many of her light fixtures on Ebay, where she browses for hours at a time. She also love a pastiche of design eras and styles.
Her house has splashes of Art Deco, Hollywood regency and Gothic revival.
Not to mention a menagerie of taxidermy creatures in the living room and she loves everything with birds on.
Three hundred hats and counting she says, she collects a lot of these 1940's-era 'doll' or 'tilt' hats. Often in the shape of classic men's hats, but with a very feminine twist.

Anyway, the Star's passion for Vintage never get's old!
I would love to spend an afternoon with her.
