A Meeting With Dita Von Teese

Photo: Elissa Love Goodkin
Min kjærlighet til vintage gjør at jeg ofte kommer i
snakk med mennesker som har samme interesse
som meg. Da jeg var på Fashion Expo i Santa Monica
i Los Angeles for et par uker siden, var jeg så heldig å
støte på Dita Von Teese. Hun er bare en av kjendisene i LA
som elsker vintage og ofte er å se på vintagemesser som denne.
Det var ganske surrealistisk å lete gjennom samme klesbunke
som henne etter 50-tallskjoler. Dessutten var hun så liten
at jeg følte meg som en kjempe ved siden av henne. Men hun
var veldig søt og hyggelig. Hun fortalte at hun elsker vintage,
og at hun ofte drar rundt på messer og plukker klærne sine selv.
På samme stand traff jeg forøvrig også et par andre kjendiser.
Mer om dette kan du lese om i min nye spalte i Du Denne uken,
som er i butikkene idag!

As promised I am giving you a sneak peak from the magazine
Du Denne uken, about some of my experiences in Los Angeles. As
of this week I have my own column (Yay!) and my first topic is my meeting
with Dita Von Teese, while vintageshopping in LA. Me and my good
friend Elissa, went to Fashion Expo in Santa Monica to look for some
vintage treasures. And that was not all we found, because as we
were rummaging through old dresses from the 50s I saw
Dita Von Teese doing the same thing. It was unreal, but she
was very nice. She is so tiny, I felt like a giant next to her. She loves
vintage, and she scored a lot of deals while we where there. She
picked up quite a few vintage dresses and chinese inspired kimonos,
brooches and pants. She said she often goes by herself and likes to
look through things, like me. Usually people leave her alone (not me!)
and she said she had found some amazing things tis time. On top of
that there were two other quite famous celebs rummaging around.
One is a stylist to the stars and always wears sunglasses and fur, while the
other is Oprahs favorite interiordesigner. Can you guess who I am
talking about?

Oh my gosh, I am so jealous you met Dita! She is my style icon! I recently watched a show of hers and copied a look she had on.

It was this vintage chic black dress similar to the one she had on and I topped the look off with my gorgeous diamond earrings from that my fiance bought me.

She's so chic and I am so jealous you went vintage shopping with her!

Nå har jeg lagt inn bud på ebay på en vintagekjole fra 50-tallet som er påfallende lik den svarte stroppeløse kjolen fra Samsøe & Samsøe! Krysser fingrene for at budet holder inn til mål:)
