Last night i went to the Gilded Merkin. A fantastic burlesque and cabaret show in Nottingham, which last night celebrated its first birthday. Its hard to believe that its been running a whole year already and as shows sponsor i have been to every show. A massive congratulations to Scarlett Daggers who is the lady behind the glitter, its because of her this past year i have seen some amazing performers, many of which are big on the scene and some i hadn't even heard of.
Apart from seeing an fantastic show, one of the reasons i like going to the Gilded Merkin is that its a chance to really dress up. Its great to see everyone in the audience make such an effort and they all looked fantastic. As show sponsor it was one of my duties to pick best dressed. The winner won a BBKC voucher.... so next time dress to impress as you might be a winner!
This is what i wore, a vintage handpainted sequined vintage Mexican velvet circle skirt, i teamed it up with one of my velvet bustiers. This skirt is what inspired the bustier. My shoes are bordello Genies from Cherry Berry Kiss.
I have teamed up the the lovely people at Cherry Berry Kiss to give BBKC fans and readers a very special discount code. For a limited time only you can get an amazing 20% off the discounted lines by using the special code genie1 at checkout, bringing price to £39.99! Yes ladies you read that correctly, £39.99!!
Remember these lines are discontinued and Bordello are no longer making them, once they are gone, they are gone! See Cherry Berry Kiss for more details of the discontinued lines.
The next Gilded Merkin is 3rd November and it will be another cracking show with a mind blowing line up. Plenty of time to plan your outfit and get your new pair of genies!
