Charming Wolf — Summer Gauze for Master


dievca is heading home to the humid and hot City.  she’s been wearing a borrowed down jacket and will need to strip before exiting the plane.

dievca is always looking for pieces to beat the heat with Summer in the City. Cotton gauze is a fabric which speaks to her clearly and this brand looks to offer some lovely pieces — though the matching bloomers made dievca laugh.

she wonders what Master might think about them~

So, she just gets what she needs.


A Big Bird for Master’s Return (Presentation outfit)

Master returns from traveling and dievca has been thinking of “Homecoming” Presentation options. Mind, that her sense of humor tends to come to the forefront in most things – and when she saw this dress….well, let’s just say that Master loves to toss-up dievca’s skirts and take her any way He chooses. Legs waxed, anal plug, sans underwear, this could be fun!

On the Dot!

Marilyn Monroe 1951 Polka Dot Bikini

America’s love affair with the polka dot might have started in 1926, when Miss America was photographed in a polka dot swimsuit.

In 1928, Disney introduced its cartoon darling “Minnie Mouse” wearing a polka dot dress and matching bow.  Minerva leans towards red, though it looks like she was open to color changes in 1930.

Throughout the 1930s, polka dot dresses appeared in stores, the fabric suddenly subversive, nipped in by ribbons and accentuated with bows.

In 1940, Tommy Dorsey and Frank Sinatra’s ballad “Polka Dots and Moonbeams” captured the height of America’s polka dot mania — that spring, the Los Angeles Times assured its readers, “You can sign your fashion life away on the polka-dotted line, and you’ll never regret it.”

Christian Dior New Look 1954 Dot Dress

We can see ‘Rosie the Riveter’s’ polka dot bandana, continuing the theme through the early 1940’s.

Later in the decade, the polka dot pattern became more “highbrow” when Christian Dior released his “New Look” collection of hourglass dresses, many styles bedecked with dots. After a wartime period of shifting gender roles, Dior told Vogue that his collection sought “to make women extravagantly, romantically, eyelash-battingly female” again.  Hollywood followed suit, and the ladylike print fast became popular with actresses.

In 1951, Monroe was famously photographed wearing a polka dot bikini (top photo). Nine years later, the release of Brian Hyland’s hit song, “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” brought polka dots back into vogue.

dievca wears polka dots once in awhile, Master’s favorite is a retro day dress:

A couple of polka dot scarves have joined dievca’s closet.

But she got distracted by a few polka dot items for this Spring and Summer:

The Garnet Hill Starlet is in dievca’s closet for summer and she is eyeballing the Lindy Bop Juliet for walking on Master’s arm when he returns to NYC.
Do you have anything polka dot you swear by?

BY CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE
Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove,
That Valleys, groves, hills, and fields,
Woods, or steepy mountain yields.

And we will sit upon the Rocks,
Seeing the Shepherds feed their flocks,
By shallow Rivers to whose falls
Melodious birds sing Madrigals.

And I will make thee beds of Roses
And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of Myrtle;

A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty Lambs we pull;
Fair lined slippers for the cold,
With buckles of the purest gold;

A belt of straw and Ivy buds,
With Coral clasps and Amber studs:
And if these pleasures may thee move,
Come live with me, and be my love.

The Shepherds’ Swains shall dance and sing
For thy delight each May-morning:
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me, and be my love.

Going electric with “Cute Circuit – Wearable Technology

The History of LED fashion technology:

Katie Perry wore something to the 2010 Met Gala — a little awkward.

Nicole wore the  CuteCircuit Twitter Dress in 2012
— taking tweets all night long.

Claire Danes wore Zac Posen’s LED dress to the Met Gala in 2016

It’s different, unique and not something that dievca is wearing for Master any time soon.
