When Urban Butterfly Met Dita Von Teese

My fingers can hardly type this as I'm still in such a state of euphoria! 
Dita Von Teese has always been my style icon and meeting her has always been a dream of mine. I though it would never come true, until Liberty announced that Dita Von Teese would be in store to launch her debut fragrance simply named 'Dita'

Now this glorious wind, rain and all seasonal weather was never going to deter my visit. So up I get at up at 6.30am this morning (a girl needs to look her best for such a star) collected Lala and off to the big smoke we went!

We arrived just at the right time before the queue started to tail around Liberty and staked out until it was time for Dita to arrive.

Lala and I excited in the queue

Oh and how she did in style, but really would we expect any less! Arriving in a vintage Rolls Royce and assisted out with such elegance.
Now it was far from warm today in London, the drizzle and grey cloud just wouldn't sod off, yet Miss Teese never one to disappoint in the style stakes, arrived in a stunning teal floor length sleeveless gown, show casing her beautiful figure and ample curves!

Once inside Dita was seated in the fragrance hall adorned by four rather handsome men! Lala was very impressed with this touch ; ) I must admit my knees felt weak as I was so nervous, I was hoping that I didn't do a little wee ; )
Look at the expression on my face, I was that nervous I couldn't smile properly, instead opting for a rather bemused glance of terror! This moment went in a flash! Totes star struck!!

 Showing that I can smile!

Here's the small handbag bottle that I purchased as it wasn't available to smell before you bought it. I love the little quote inside the box.

It's everything it says on the box with soft smell perfect for the day and night that oozes glamour and femininity. I am sure this will become a firm favourite in my perfume collection.

The quote inside -
Perfume sets the Mood..... and I am in the mood for glamour

My signed autograph, that I will treasure FOREVER!

Right....I must now go and lay down, it's all been far too much excitement for one day! Tonight I will dream of Dita :)
