Last weekend was the Finnish Burlesque Gala in Helsinki and I got the chance to participate as well. I had made this black velvet 50’s inspired cocktail dress about a year ago, but hadn’t got the chance to wear it yet. Well this was, obviously, the perfect event for the dress. I have draped pink silk sateen over the bust and added a ribbon made of black velvet under the bust from where it continues as a halter strap.
I wore 50’s rhinestone earrings and rhinestone necklace and bracelet bought from various places. The patent leather clutch is Finnish vintage from maybe 70’s or 80’s and bought from a local flee market. The shoes are modern Agent Povocateur and bought second-hand. I just love those little pink bows on them!
