DOV Enchantment Under the Sea 2014

Looking for something fun to do this Friday night and feel like getting gussied up and dancing the night away with your steady?  Then come on down to DTA for a fun night of live music, dancing, burlesque and vintage! One of the best party organizers ever, Shien Lee of Dances of Vice, is putting on yet another great party, this time, the Enchantment Under the Sea Junior-Senior Prom! There will be a dance lesson at 8:30pm, a live band, Nick Palumbo and the Flipped Fedoras, and two great DJs keeping you dancing all night long, along with burlesque performances and vendors selling hair flowers, corsages and accessories.  I’ve been to lots of Dances of Vice parties, and this one looks like its going to be great!

Check out the Dances of Vice site for more info, a lovely video of past DoV proms, and to buy tickets!

Here are some pictures of us from the last two “proms” to inspire you!  Check out the site for more inspiration!

Me by Elizabeth #1 4.13 One of the major perks of being a makeup artist who loves vintage is the chance to work with other people who share my love and create beautiful images combining the two.  Recently I was lucky enough to have my colleague, friend and fellow vintage enthusiast, Elizabeth Bert, ask me to not only do makeup for a shoot but also model for her.  Elizabeth is a model herself as well as an aspiring photographer and former owner of a vintage store so she knows all about vintage style.  Elizabeth brought some wonderful hats for me to wear, and my hair was waved perfectly by the absolutely amazing hairstylist Kat Zemtsova. (I wish my hair looked like this every day!)  It was so exciting to create beautiful images with a great team, and to be in front of the camera,   I admit 🙂  I was so happy with how the pictures turned out and I can safely say they are some of my favorite pictures of myself ever taken.  I can hardly believe they’re me when I look at them.  In fact, I want these to go on my gravestone, I don’t care how old I am when I die!
