eBay watch: 1965 Jaguar S-type owned by Dita Von Teese


I've always associated them with 1960s and '70s TV and movie villains, but this Jaguar S-type on eBay is owned (and being sold by) Burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese. if you want confirmation of that, she has confirmed it on her Twitter feed.

It's a rather tasty 1965 model with 70,000 on the clock, one that looks to have had a lot of care and attention thrown at it – new paint job, new front and rear rubber seals, new new brake system etc etc. There's also a black leather interior, wool carpets and 'roses etched in the glass'.

It 'runs and drives very nice' apparently and comes with a personal note to the buyer along with a signed photo. Note that it's a left-hand drive and located in California. Bidding right now is at $5,100.05 with no reserve. Lots more images on the listing page.

Dita Von Teese designs for Wheels & Dollbaby


There may be some debate about whether or not burlesque's journey into the mainstream is a good thing, but there's few who can deny the credentials of the scene's current darling, Dita von Teese. With proven retro credentials, she's turned her hand to fashion once more with designs for Wheels & Dollbaby.

This Dita's Closet Embroidered Cardigan has unmistakeable vintage inspiration, with a chic fit and skinny knit wool. The bow-fastening high collar and three quarter length sleeves tread the line between demure and daring well, allowing for the skinny fit to create sex appeal. Finished with fifties floral embroidery, this is not just any cardigan.

It's available online from ASOS now for £150.
