Burlesque and Beating Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day, De Bauchees!

Whether you're romantically attached or not, remember to romance the hell out of yourself today with a relaxing evening at home in your silkiest housecoat, scented candles and your favourite flowers, a bubble bath-based beauty session accompanied by classical music, a DVD marathon (they don't have to be romantic films!) and a no-holds-barred homemade or takeaway dinner! You don't need someone else to show or tell you that you're special, in fact, it's better to do it yourself. After all, your judgement is the best informed and most reliable, non?

Yesterday I asked on Twitter and Facebook what you would like for Valentine's Day and many replies centred around pretty ladies in more or less pretty outfits. So please allow me to treat you to a photo live from the rooftop runway at the Playful Promises "Burlesque and Beating Hearts" Valentine's fashion show in Shoreditch on Saturday!

 L - R: Signe, Bethan, me, Jess and Roswell (Faith)

Moments before the show started and runway-ready!

After the show, the Playful Promises team rewarded the models for strutting lingerie outdoors in icy conditions by allowing us to take what we were wearing home! There were big squeals all round in the dressing room when that was announced, I can tell you! Faith and I were particularly overjoyed as we had been considering buying our outfits after the show anyway! I've been wanting a new winter dress and really struggled to find one that I like :)

We celebrated with fat-free frozen yoghurt courtesy of Frae and then, with our newly acquired pieces rolled and tucked into our handbags, went and shopped the new Playful Promises Boxpark boutique. Faith picked up a lacy garter dress and I honed in on this 1940s style blush silk blouse, which I think is now my favourite top that I own! The only downer is that I now need to learn how to hand wash silk ;)

Whatever you do today, enjoy yourself, love yourself, and I'll speak to you soon.
