Photos: VaVaVette sneak peek: Vintage/burlesque clothing madness

The erstwhile and beloved burlesque emcee queen Cora Vette (aka Reyna Von Vett) is finally doing what she's threatened to do for a while now: opening up a store -- and with her burlesque wife Eve Vette, no less! And burlesque and vintage clothing enthusiasts will be thrilled to know that she's got all kinds of ability to custom-make clothing to your taste and shape. We stopped by the place (3501 Wazee Street, in the Wazee Union) for a sneak peek at what you'll see Friday night at the opening from 6 to 10 p.m.
