W. S. Gilbert refers to the “Grace of an odalisque on a divan” in Colonel Calverley’s song “If You Want A Receipt For That Popular Mystery” from the Gilbert and Sullivan opera Patience.
In popular use, the word odalisque also may refer to a mistress, concubine or paramour of a wealthy man.
During the 19th century, odalisques became common fantasy figures in the artistic movement known as Orientalism, being featured in many erotic paintings from that era.
By the later 19th century, Turkish writers such as Melek Hanum used the word odalisque to refer to slave-concubines when writing in English:
If any lady possesses a pretty-looking slave, the fact soon gets known. The gentlemen who wish to buy an odalisque or a wife, make their offers. Many Turks, indeed, prefer to take a slave as a wife, as, in such case, there is no need to dread fathers, mothers, or brothers-in-law, and other undesirable relations

The Ring of O is a specially designed ring which has been worn as a distinctive mark among BDSM practitioners, mainly in continental Europe — and especially the German-speaking countries — since the 1990s. Its use is relatively widespread within this subculture. Its name derives from the name of the central female character in the classic BDSM novel Story of O (written by Pauline Réage), who was a sex slave and wore an analogous ring.
The overwire bra was popular during the 1950s and created a slightly softer look than the bullet bra. The cups are wired above the chest, creating a beautiful projected bust and often the bra features a deep V in the center, making it perfect for low-cut strapless dresses The placement of the wire doesn’t really do any technical function like the underwire of today, instead, it offers a different shape compared to other bras. The overwire did feature heavily in strapless bras as the wire helped defy gravity by keeping the bra shape intact.
Modern overwire bras are a niche market and you’ll find the odd one being produced by vintage/retro reproduction lingerie companies: Bettie Page Lingerie and Dita von Teese Lingerie or you can just buy vintage…
The dress – Dries von Noten SS 2015, soooo dievca might look a little bit muppet-ish, the swish is too fun to miss out on….
Here’s how Dries styled it:
OK, no patterned cardigan available in dievca’s closet, but a Club Monaco Soft Trench might do the trick:
And it works!
Shoes? Initially, dievca was thinking boots. Tall, black patent leather boots, but Dries styled it with an ankle strap sandal for Spring/Summer. What else does dievca have?
dievca is going to keep the jewelry simple because the dress has so much going on:
Hair and make-up? Well, dievca’s hair grew out and had gotten long and shaggy as thin hair is wont to do~ Listening to her Master, she kept it long and got a “Lob” (long bob) with the idea that with her hair blown out she would have similar hair to:
It worked. The color isn’t the same, dievca has red, gold and grey highlights from the Summer (random grey as she cannot decided whether to color her hair or not…Master has no opinion on it.) But, the body and the sweep occurs when dievca straightens her curls. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain….
Smoky eyes, red lips, facial contouring which dievca learned this summer from the photo-shoot!
If you cannot be traditionally beautiful, you might as well have fun with Fashion!
and dievca suspects that Master will have fun tossing up her skirt! 😉
If I tell you, YOUR fantasies
will you tell me, MINE?
