Hi! My name's Melissa and smellymellyblinks is a collection of daily life, fashion, food and music. In case you're wondering about the name smellymelly, it is indeed a nickname that comes from my partner in crime, Ian.
Just ask Ian, and he will tell you that I have way more girl crushes than boy crushes. One of my girl crushes is the very lovely and talented Dita Von Teese. Dita is known for her burlesque but has also worked on a vintage inspired lingerie line. She always looks so put together (the opposite of me) and oozes of glamour. I love how when she runs errands she still manages to look like a million bucks. It’s evident through Dita’s fashion sense that she is clearly inspired by the 40’s and 50’s. I’m glad that Dita has brought the 50s retro pinup style back into fashion. Here’s a few pictures that capture Dita’s quirky yet glamorous style.
