30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 1
Day 1 - Your Blog's Name
RetroFatale was given to me by my friend Rob Mosca a very long time ago, like back when Live Journal was the height of social networking. It came from when I really got started in burlesque. I used to work at a fetish club, met and got to open for Dita von Teese and then kinda got hooked, like it changed my entire life. I started modeling more, doing a lot of retro and pin-up pics and started performing burlesque A LOT. However, having worked as a dom at the club I guess I still had that aura of femme fatale danger about me in addition to all the pin-up stuff so he dubbed me retrofatale and it felt right so it stuck. It's my blog, it's my twitter, etc... if you see retrofatale somewhere it's probably me.
It's kind of funny to think about since it was kind of a crazy random happenstance, but I'm lucky enough to know quite a few very amazingly talented writers who have contributed weird things to my life. Seriously, my friends rock and I love that I get to be surrounded by such amazing talented individuals on a regular basis.
