chasing the blues (rain) away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Daddy wants to play
Rain, rain go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Mommy wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Brother wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Sister wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

dievca’s DKNY brown shiny raincoat bit the dust…
Here’s her replacement to help beat the April Showers~


Pathetic

If you describe someone or something as pathetic, you mean that they make you feel impatient or angry, often because they are weak or not very good.

dievca is calling herself pathetic….not in the real sense. In the sense that she knows she is weak and she is laughing at herself.
Why?

The custom $400 sweatshirt…The sweatshirt itself is Atelier Notify and $110 — so the custom graphics (only a silk screen – not embroidery, mind you) is $300+.

That dievca is even thinking about this is bad…
Now you know why she calls herself pathetic

To resist the urge to buy — dievca is finishing off the last of her taxes, grocery shopping and visiting to three open houses on the UWS. Housing prices are going down and it might be time to buy~
Umm, the sweatshirt would be cheaper than buying a co-op. Co-op will last longer, hopefully. 😁

Have a lovely Sunday!


How does a submissive dress?

25 Celsius

9 Celsius

A 30 degree drop in temperature (Fahrenheit, 16 degree drop in celsius) within 24 hours.

dievca is pretty good at working in celsius from a science background and living in Europe for a several years. she does check herself with the formula = (°F − 32) × 5/9 = °C

How does one dress?

In Layers….ready to peel everything off in a moment.

Master gets Lucky with Lucky Brand : BDSM-esque

It all started with taking care of Master…
His supply of t-shirts and basic underwear bit the dust, so dievca helped out when she saw some nice soft items in the Flat Iron Lucky Brand store (its closed now).

Lucky Brand Boxer Brief Grey

The location closure means that dievca keeps her eyes open on the website for deals ~
The first thing she ran into recently is: Masters Chukka Boots

Truly – Masters is the name. What’s in a name?

Then she bought these bondage / shibari inspired pillows: Basket Rope embroidery

This reminded dievca of items that made her smile which she didn’t buy for Master:

All on Sale~

 


dievca is working, but…

Alberta Ferretti “Its a Wonderful Day” tee
on sale : FarFetch, click photo

Happy Saturday!

dievca’s thinking positive, but her taxes aren’t done.
Master’s are complete.
April 15th is looming…
Are your taxes done?


seeing the change in 5+ years


When dievca started this blog in 2013, there wasn’t a lot of elegance in BDSM options for a submissive to wear in private, or public. 50 Shades of Grey hadn’t come out in the movie theaters and Fetish Fashion wasn’t prevalent.

BDSM items were found on raw or shady websites, often cheaply made or repurposed from other venues:

elegant Dog Collars = elegant and sturdy Play Collars

Now, bondage is a staple of mainstream dressing – and you don’t have to check out dog collars to find an elegant Play Collar. Whereas dievca used to seek out offerings for blog posts about subtly showing your BDSM leanings – items are available from Alexander McQueen, Helmut Lang, Alyx, Maison Margiela, Alexander Wang, Lanvin, Acne Studios. Moschino etc.

The only problem? $$$

That’s why the comic above made dievca laugh…its true. XO


Swimsuit Coverup – lingerie

Myla London Vine Street jumpsuit

A swimsuit coverup is a lightweight garment which is designed to be worn over a swimsuit to protect the modesty of the wearer, provide shelter from the sun to limit exposure to harmful UV radiation, keep swimmers warm when they are out of the water and allow swimmers to transition from the beach/pool to the streets or a casual restaurant with ease. Swimsuit coverups are sold by most companies which make swimsuits, and they are often readily available in beach towns.

The defining characteristic of a swimsuit coverup is that it is designed to be easily removed so that it can be taken off to swim. As a result, many coverups are loose, and they may be elasticized or tied for rapid removal. Buttons are unusual, as are zippers or snaps, which can rust if they are often exposed to water. Some swimsuit coverups are simply made from stretchy material like a jersey knit which is easy to pull on and off, with no straps or ties needed. (Myla London Swimsuits and Jersey Cover-ups below)

Sarongs and related wraps are commonly used as swimsuit coverups, as are caftans, loose flowing robes of Middle Eastern origin. (Melissa Odabash Pareo)

Some companies make tunics which can be used as swimsuit coverups, and it is also possible to find sundresses which are designed to be worn over swimsuits, especially bikinis. Most swimsuit coverups are made for women; men usually wear board shorts and t-shirts if they want to cover up. (Loup Charmant Sundress)

 

Some women like to wear a swimsuit coverup for reasons of modesty, or because they do not want to attract attention at the beach; many women are self-conscious in public about areas of their body which are normally concealed, such as the stomach and upper thighs.

Others may use coverups which tend to show more than they hide – as a Fashion Statement. Though it’s not uncommon to view coverups as practical pieces, too. Some people use a swimsuit coverup to get warm up after a swim or to cut exposure to the sun.

When selecting a swimsuit coverup, it can be a good idea to wear the swimsuit to make sure that the garments go well together. It’s also a good idea to find a garment which can breathe and be washed and dried in a machine, and a garment which will resist crumpling or look great with wrinkles (Cotton Gauze).

dievca finds coverups a fun piece of lingerie to purchase – they are comfortble, of nice fabrics and represent the Joy of hitting the beach or going swimming.

Can you tell dievca is desperate for the Sun?
