Street Style or Coach? dievca’s DIY …. leather jacket

Penguin Push Pindievca was walking down 34th Street and she saw a Black Lady in a boring dress, but with an AWESOME leather jacket over it. It looked like a vintage 1990’s Wilson’s basic Leather jacket, and the Lady put pins all over the front.

No camera for a sneak snapshot….

The NEXT day, dievca was walking down 34th Street, again, and she saw an Asian Gentleman in a simple black leather jacket (Wilson’s?) with PINS on the front. It looked amazing! dievca thought to herself, “this must be a thing!”

For the second time, dievca wasn’t able to get a snapshot…

So, dievca wanted to tell you all about the NYC street style and went looking for photos online and ran into the COACH Embellished Racer Jacket. Sigh. And here she thought those two people were being so creative.

Coach EMBELLISHED leather jacket with pins

Wait!?!?!? Maybe those people created their jackets before COACH did, or maybe not. But, they still made their own and theirs looked better than the COACH offering. Just say’n.

dievca is trying to remember if she has her Wilson’s Leather jacket anymore.
It looked something like this:

wilsons-leather-jacket-1774848 wilsons-leather-sharp-jet-black-leather-biker-jacket-size-s

There was a Men’s version, too.

wilsons-leather-jacket-mens

So, get out your old leather jacket and collect your pins — whatever has meaning to you or makes you smile:

Button Pins

Lapel Pins

 

Well, if dievca finds her old school Wilson’s Leather jacket – she knows that she has pins from her childhood….a cool jacket will be created and it won’t be a COACH (MSRP: $1995)….it will be a dievca ORIGINAL!

Since writing this post dievca visited a flea market and look what she found!!!20151122_134055_resized20151122_134114_resized
Aha! Design ideas abound!
There might be a future “It took me a year, but I completed my DIY project” post. ūüėÄ


Perhaps tacky, but dievca did it! DIY

Charlotte Olympia Flower Heels

Charlotte Olympia Bryony Flower Ankle-Wrap Platform Sandal

About a year ago, dievca mentioned that she was cleaning out her closets, eBaying items and limiting her purchases. (A DIY moment? Maybe….)¬†Her amount of purchasing of clothing and accessories has diminished quite a bit this past year. ¬†Probably, because her attention was diverted with Life emergencies and changes. ¬†The pleasure of looking and shopping took a backseat to more important issues

As dievca has come up for air, she took a day for herself: to see the movie “Cinderella” in the Theatre with a girlfriend, got a mani/pedi, eBay-ed a backlog of items and completed a DIY shoe project she started last year.

Her DIY project was inspired by these Charlotte Olympia heels and her constraints were that she had to use a pair of shoes from her closet.

dievca cheated a little bit. she had helped her parents clear out their house and her Mom had a pair of ivory satin shoes exclusively made for Rosenthal’s Department Store. The shoes were dievca’s oldest Aunt’s wedding shoes in the 1930’s and worn heavily¬†afterward. They fit dievca very well.

20140411_130212_resized 20140411_130219_resized 20140411_130238_resized

 

dievca brought them back to NYC and checked in with her favorite shoe repair shop.They said that they couldn’t clean them, nor could they dye them navy blue — but they could be dyed¬†black.

20150402_134338_resized_1

The shoes looked great when they came back from their dye job and simple repairs.  So, good that dievca was indecisive about adding flowers. she dragged her heels until she did a spot test with rubber cement and hot glue.  The hot glue could be picked off the shoes without damage, so dievca could add her flowers and if she hated them Рremove the flowers safely.

20150402_134423_resized_1 20150402_134448_resized

OK – dievca is not a glue gun demon…a small NYC apartments don’t offer a lot of space to work. 7 inches in front of a microwave on a glass cutting board is tricky. That said, here is dievca’s DIY offering for Spring.

20150403_131123_resized 20150403_131109_resizedHmmm, not so good. In fact….kinda “Tacky”, but fun. ¬†dievca wore them for Easter and with a sprig of the leftover flowers in her tote bag.

The shoes were comfortable and held up well until she got to Master’s Apartment and then the piece which encased the heel of the foot pulled away from the sole. It can be repaired…but is it worth it?

So, dievca did her “Spring Goddess” presentation for Master¬†without the shoes or stockings. She came to Him¬†in bare feet, stained a little purple/blue from the shoe dye even after being washed….

DIY – Do It Yourself

dievca is trying to clean out her closets drastically to match Master’s sensibility about materialism:
Less is More.
But, her passion for fashion takes over on many occasions. Master does not expect dievca to follow His leanings because He knows that fashion brings her a great deal of joy.

But, dievca is at the point where she needs to have a clear out.

It is really bad when she asks her Mom to help her weed out dresses that are not flattering and they both end up looking in the mirror and saying ” I know why you bought that dress.” “Oh, that is lovely.” “You cannot get rid of that…” Not good.

This occurs with shoes, too.

When dievca decided that she would like to buy a pair of heels with flowers for Spring, the Charlotte Olympia version was ¬†the Holy Grail that spoke to her. ¬†But trying to stay within her new rules — items need to leave the house, not come in — dievca is trying to put her DIY skills to good use.

she found these DIY shoe sites:
http://www.brit.co/diy-shoe-hacks/
http://www.trendhunter.com/slideshow/classy-diy-shoe#1)
Plus this photo of DIY Floral Heels for inspiration.  Currently, dievca is scouring her shoe collection for a pair that can be drafted for her project.

Wish her luck because she is still lusting over those Charlotte Olympia Flower Heels…

Does anyone else have trouble clearing their closets? or have a DIY clothing project going?

soft, fuzzy, sexy? sweaters as lingerie


As Autumn approaches, the chill in the air signals ‘Sweater Weather’. dievca always has fantasies of being peeled out of her sweaters like an onion, one layer at a time.

But does Cosy/Snuggly = Sexy?

dievca thinks “yes”! Master might think “no”… she will have to ask.


Just take a look at Linda Evangalista in her Jumper:


Stockings + Stiletto Sandals = a dievca disaster

dievca was setting up a Presentation Outfit for Master and couldn’t find the correct suspender belt. After 20 minutes of digging without success, she moved on to Presentation Outfit #2.

It was a repeat of a past Outfit, but it channeled the 2019 Summer Solstice!

dievca needed to wear nude stockings for three reasons:

  1. Master loves stockings
  2. Stockings allow easy access in a visually pleasing way
  3. dievca isn’t scheduled to be waxed until next week…..

Outfit Choice #2 was panning out nicely and dievca had some great shoes in mind!

Lanvin Chain-Embellished Stilettos from Summer 2010 — the sandals added a little heavy metal to cut the floral and lace sweetness.

dievca packed everything up, adding the gold play collar and lead. she made her way uptown to Master’s apartment.

Hartman Rose Gold Collar

Hartman Rose Gold Lead

When she arrived, dievca knelt before Master. They took a moment to connect and shift – then Master told dievca she had 5 minutes to change into His Presentation Outfit.

The timing worked well, all pieces of the Outfit slid-on easily, including the Lanvin Sandals.
It was when dievca tried to walk —

DISASTER!

dievca never took into consideration that wearing stockings in open, strappy, leather sandals would be VERY slippery.¬† she had to move at a shuffling mincing walk to make it back to Master. And when Master led dievca to the bedroom after Cock Worship. He guided her along with the lead at a good clip – she almost took herself and Him down! And the sound effects emitted from dievca’s mouth?
Not elegant, at all~

Master absolutely loved the heels, so they stayed on.

What’s the solution for next time?

Double-sided Tape!
(or grippy pads)


Bucking the Law: Nipple Pasties and Tassels (lingerie)

What are nipple pasties?
An ornate covering for the nipple.  Invented in the 1920s so that burlesque stars and cabaret shows could get away with having their show-girls virtually naked, without breaking any indecency laws. Burlesque performer Carrie Finnell is attributed with adding tassels that hang from the center of a pastie and she incorporated tassel twirling as part of her performances.

Heavily used in Burlesque Shows, ornate nipple pasties have had a bit of a resurgence with celebs wearing them out in public and on social media. Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj to name a couple. “Everyday” pasties have been helping people keep their nipples from peaking out of dresses and tops for more staid events.

Stylized
Get started by picking a nipple tassel or pastie that is comfortable and completely covers the nipple. They come in all different sizes and shapes – stars, hearts, circles, satin, leather…

The traditional Burlesque style is typically all-black nipple pasties, decorated with rhinestones, sequins, feathers, jewels to ribbons. Depending on your budget, you can get tassels from Etsy, Amazon, eBay, Agent Provocateur, make your own or buy a customized pair.

Attaching the decor
Your skin needs to be clean and dry, without any oils or moisturizer. The main concern with nipple tassels is keeping them on. Larger flat pasties will have more areas to stick to your skin, but they have more coverage. If you attach pasties with a good quality tape, you won’t have to worry. Some pasties already come with a disposable tape that will stick well. If you want to reuse your tassels, consider buying bondage tape Рwhich sticks to itself or the Drag Queen choice of toupee tape.

Give them a twirl
dievca wore a pair of nipple tassels for Master and He knew enough to teach dievca how to twirl.  When she asked about His learning of the skill, Master mumbled something about occasionally hanging out in bars which had strippers wandering about~ The idea of Master hanging out in a seedy bar just made dievca laugh.

Body Chains (lingerie)

The jewelry which could be considered lingerie.

Body Chains are a type of jewelry worn around the neck, chest and wrapped around the waist embellishing the assets like a piece of lingerie. They are often made of silver or gold and they highlight the breasts, cleavage and waist in a subtle way. The chains cause people to look closer.

The chains seem to be versions of the Kamarband/Udiyanam, which is a type of body jewelry worn around the waist, originating in India.

So, are they sexy or not worth the time?

This post arrived in dievca’s inbox :¬†http://ilovegreeninspiration.com/2014/08/23/pallets/

It was a post¬†showing the use of Pallets as furniture. ¬†Now, dievca is eclectic and could fit a Pallet piece in her Apartment, but it is not something that she would normally seek out….until she thought of the BDSM applications… dievca loves to be restrained by Master’s cuffs or chained by Master’s collar to a point¬†in a room. Restraints could be connected to ALL theses¬†pieces. Pallets have holes and slots available and some of the tables have wheels – they could be modular and moved. Very Interesting. A way to hide the BDSM oriented furniture and bring it out when needed. Stealth.

Let me offer some photos or take a look at Marinella’s post and see what you think.

Could you imagine hosting a D/s party and the subs could be connected as the Doms / Dommes go about their business — released to serve and then connected, again? Perhaps on display?

As dievca was scanning the photos, all she could think of was “Maybe Master would connect me here, put my hands up there, spread me out completely, wrap me around, bend me over” – OK, you get the idea. The Good News is some of these products can be purchased or if you or your Sir/Madame is handy — an inexpensive DIY project. ¬†The padded pieces of furniture look to be more comfortable but perhaps pain, humiliation, or exhibitionism is part of your process — again, dievca thinks you can¬†see the options.

dievca prefers the outdoor pieces. she is not an exhibitionist but would love to be connected to or spread for Master in the fresh air. Played with or left alone as He desires. she loves that there are many ways to be attached without killing the furniture and the padded portions offer Master comfort outside as he works, ignores or focuses on dievca.

 


Naughty Nerd

dievca showed up at Master’s in a chunky turtleneck sweater, glasses, knit mini-skirt, tights and boots. ¬†Not quite Velma — but channeling her vibe, unintentionally. Master started laughing and pointed out the similarities.

 

 

 

That brought up the idea of Velma Dinkley of Scooby Doo fame as a Sex Object. Master mentioned that it is a thing. dievca had no idea…

It is a thing –totally CosPlay!

Here are some fun photos of the costume in action!

That brought up the 2nd point that geek chic can be sexy
(especially when you are peeling the bombshell out of the layers of sweater).

And in her meanderings around the web, dievca ran in a site for her geeky followers:

Created in collaboration with ANYA HINDMARCH and Charlotte Stockdale of CHAOS FASHION, these beautifully-crafted leather stickers can be used to ‘sticker up’ anything – from your handbag to your phone or notebook – to create your own personal artwork. Please note, these leather stickers are designed to adhere to any surface permanently, so once they have been attached they can not be removed.

Anya Hindmarch SS15_Making_Of_Stickers_1We use a two-step process to achieve our luxurious embossed leather stickers. Once the leather has been screen printed, we use a process called alta frequenza to achieve the three-dimensional embossing. Although it’s a labour-intensive process we think it’s much more fun and luxurious than simply printing the design onto leather.

Antiquing with BDSM in mind. Storage.

Tie me up, tie me down.
Play with me for your delight.

Even the most demanding decorators would approve of a trunk or chest at the end of the bed. Choose one that locks to hide X-rated toys that don’t blend well ‚ÄĒ but you can also use the trunk itself as a pervertable. Look for one with ring handles to tie your lover down, turn it into a spanking bench, or use it as an impromptu wedge to explore different angles.

It has been said that our European Friends have cooled down, too
Time to think about Autumn.

Saint-Laurent-Sweater Jeans Boots Autumn 2014

Not ladylike, not elegant, not feminine.
Not for presenting to Master.
Something to pound the pavement in –
Buy groceries, search for unique purchases,
schlep DIY items from Home Depot.
Doing all this and looking really “cool”.
dievca is digging the offerings from Saint Laurent.
Is that your inner tomboy peeking out?

Random Conclusions

There are some posts that dievca talks about different items she wants or owns. Things that she is looking to purchase or considering to change/modify.
dievca has never really offered a conclusion to those posts.

Here is her chance:
Remember that Anya Hindmarch Earl Valentine Tote?

dievca¬†was able to buy¬†one from Japan (don’t ask, it was a convoluted¬†experience) —-
and she absolutely loves it!

And the reason this post was written is a current failure….dievca talked about having “floral” shoes for the Spring and doing a DIY for them¬†(A DIY Moment: Maybe?)¬† dievca took a pair of her Aunt’s wedding shoes from the 1930’s to the shoemaker to be repaired. ¬†They never did anything to fix them and forgot to call, then they got lost and, now, dievca hasn’t been able to go and pick them up. ¬†This project might turn into a year-long project. Sigh. ¬†Here are the before photos:

dievca’s favorite dress: Moschino

I saw it in the Window.
It spoke to me.
Curve hugging, Punk, Winter Wonderland sparkly.
It was out of my price range.
I walked away.

I saw it in a Magazine.
It spoke to me.
Glorious on a Curvy Girl from TV.
It was out of my price range.
I walked away.

It wasn’t in the Window.
The sign said, “Sale”- whee!
I had to check the availability.
It was my size.
We walked away.

I went to a Museum.
What did I see?
An Exhibit that looked Almost like me.
