Stunning – Leather is Back with a Vengence

It’s not just about the classic bomber anymore. Leather in all shapes and forms is making its way to Street Style snaps around the World. Take a look in your closet and see if there is leather lurking in the back corner. Air it out, condition it and if it’s got an 80’s vibe – rock it.
If there isn’t a leather piece to be had — take a look at the following for inspiration:

And that is where dievca is going for Master’s future Ladylike looks. Hello HVN!


A second ‘lewk’- sweater lingerie in cashmere

Lewk.
What it means:
lewk is a curated outfit, following a theme, your mood or the occasion.

To use the term of art, a lewk is a personal style signature so individual it’s almost indivisible from you. It connotes something noticeable: wearing jeans every day isn’t a lewk, but wearing a Schiaparelli lobster hat might be. It might be something you wear every day, but is not the same thing as a uniform. It’s not about saving time and brainpower by cutting out frivolity; it’s about embracing a particular brand of it, one that is yours alone. – Veronique Hyland, The Cut

dievca missed it on her ‘sweaters as lingerie‘ post. Katie Holmes’ lewk. Katie’s trying to step it up and be sexier, more mature – not the cute kid next door. She’s using the brand, Khaite to do it. The cashmere lingerie and sweaters are what dievca would truely consider ‘sweater lingerie’. 

The lewk:

dievca loves cashmere, but this is an expensive ‘lewk’=
bra $520
panties $500
sweater $1500
Way out of dievca’s range – but Katie rocks it well.


Ladylike

graceful, polite, and behaving in a way that is thought to be socially acceptable for a woman:.

In dress, it is controlled, elegant, classic and conservative:

Master’s favorite look.

dievca has gotten away from it. The process takes time and patience. A consistency of body-size.

Worrying about elderly parents, travel, aging takes its toll. A general tendency towards quirky and downtown chic pulls dievca when given a choice to spend money on clothing…
Master does like to see His dievca in her downtown chic plumage, but D/s-wise He prefers “ladylike”.

Why does this matter?

dievca has been clearing and revamping her closet – she’s sold a great deal on the RealReal, eBay and at Buffalo Exchange. Her money has not gone towards any ladylike items…

she’s gone more practical, focusing on items that she desired during the past year, which went on sale:

she will have to ask Master how He feels about her negligence of ladylike dressing. He is entertained by her eclectic closet and He knows her focus has been on Family/Life items.

The luxury of being “Ladylike” will just have to wait until dievca can refocus.


Biting the bullet – Master’s bespoke suit

It took a while – 3 years to be exact – for Master to bite the bullet and agree to get measured for another custom suit. He’s attending an event in the UK and needs to look “spot on”.

dievca will be reviewing her own advice (above link) and checking out what is currently in fashion for suits. she does know that the “Thom Browne” look isn’t going to fly for Master.

Charcoal grey is in the initial plans, excellent fabric quality and a slimmer cut (but not shrunken) for Master’s solid physique. He’s been working hard on it.

A well-informed dievca is a “prepped and ready” dievca.!

Master just passed on a note. He only has to wear a suit jacket and pants. An easier option from the closet. All of dievca’s research is null and void.
Ah, well.
