Wrong, wrong, wrong – but wouldn’t it be fun?

Right about now, dievca should be attending the final fundraiser of the year.
Not happening for obvious reasons…

Its dievca’s habit to keep a lookout for outfits that fit the Gala bill.
she ran into this Riasa & Vanessa outfit that made her look twice and smile.

Then shake her head for the many ways it is just wrong for her build:

  • Crop top at this age for formal wear?
  • Pants that sweeping and long on a short body? (hard to hem)
  • Short torso and curves trying to drape those sequins?

 

Well, this is what she had planned:

Her Black Halo Lucy Dress in Jellybean with these:


—————————————————————————————————————

  • Stuart Weitzman Axis Sandals Black
  • Chandelier Earrings
  • Subversive +Target ribbon bracelet
  • Garay vintage black fabric clutch
  • French Luxe hair combs in black
  • Bobbi Brown Art Stick Harlow red

Finding Sexy, again.


WFH – takes a chunk out of your sexiness factor.

dievca’s digging through her closet for a great dress.
Master might be surprised after her biking attire.

Have you dressed up lately? Just to get the fires going?
Might be time to try it.

Masochism Tango

dievca was distracted by various Tom Lehrer videos: New Math, The Elements, Smut, etc.  One video stood out from the pack and called for a Presentation Outfit. dievca is hoping to persuade Master to show off his Tango skills to the Masochism Tango (video below).

Mr. Lehrer is a retired American musician, singer-songwriter, satirist, and mathematician. He has lectured on mathematics and musical theater. He is best known for the pithy and humorous songs that he recorded in the 1950s and 1960s.

Here’s dievca’s outfit:

And here is the Masochism Tango:


Presentation Outfits…100 Years of Fashion in 2 minutes

dievca was looking to be inspired for Presentation Outfits: she ran into this video and it made her smile and think about options for Master. It seems like the most ‘ladylike’ outfits are from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

The 1910s are too covered and too involved for finding clothing pieces, the 1970s seem like novelty outfits – Disco-oriented, dievca lived the BIG HAIR era of the 1980s (she has a vintage Norma Kamali red satin dress…), the 1990s are back in style – now.

Denim Dynamics – Trucker Dress

Cotton Citizen Caballo Denim Dress $440 (click photo)

A denim dress never goes out of style. Why? Denim by itself is considered to be a timeless fabric that works for different weather conditions and occasions. There are classic denim dresses, as well as modern styles with sexy cuts and mini lengths. A denim dress can be styled with all kinds of shoes, starting from sneakers, flats and wedge sandals to sexy stilettos and classy pumps.

The Fabric:

Denim is a sturdy cotton warp-faced textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces a diagonal ribbing that distinguishes it from cotton duck. While a denim predecessor known as dungaree has been produced in India for hundreds of years, denim itself was first produced in the French city of Nîmes under the name “serge de Nîmes”.

The most common denim is indigo denim, in which the warp thread is dyed, while the weft thread is left white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the textile is dominated by the blue warp threads and the other side is dominated by the white weft threads. This causes blue jeans to be white on the inside. The indigo dyeing process, in which the core of the warp threads remains white, creates denim’s signature fading characteristics. ~Wikipedia

The Dress:

The Trucker style of denim dress takes its cue from the Levi’s Type III jacket with some distinctive features to look for:

  • Cropped cut that ends at the waist
  • Slim, tailored cut
  • Buttons at sleeve, pocket, and front
  • Chest pockets with pointed flaps
  • Generally, two slanted (or “V-shaped”) seams that run from chest pocket to waist
  • A point collar

Add some length and you’ve got a Denim Trucker Dress:

Though dievca loves the look of the Cotton Citizen Caballo Dress (photo – top of post), she is rocking the less expensive Lucky Brand Trucker Dress.
Why? 100% cotton vs. some lycra.
dievca always goes with the stretch! she’s planning on snakeskin boots with the dress or maybe tights and OTK boots for winter. Hmmm, a casual presentation for Master…time to think on it.
