She’s dabbled in the fragrance industry and even created a line of striptease-inspired pens, but now, Dita Von Teese is trying her hand at something a bit more conventional: designing cardigan sweaters! The burlesque star recently collaborated with Wheels & Dollbaby on a limited edition, vintage inspired cardigan, which the star just happened to wear to the grocery store last weekend. The 1950s-inspired retro knit comes in four color combinations and is packaged inside a collectible peek-a-boo armoire-style box. “I love the way Wheels & Dollbaby makes it easy for any girl to capture the spirit of the classic pin-up girl,” Von Teese said in a statement. “This cute cardigan has always been a favorite of mine, and I am excited to bring it to my fans. I wear mine with a sleek pencil skirt or capri pants for an easy yet chic ensemble.” The Dita Rose Embroidered Cardi, which features satin trim, black velvet buttons and a matching velvet necktie, retails for $190 (which includes an autographed postcard from Von Teese!) and can be purchased at Tell us: Would you buy Von Teese’s cardigans? –Kim Peiffer
