Tattoo Lingerie

In CA, dievca ran into a number of people (Men and Women) of a certain age (late 20’s to mid 30’s) with tattoos.  Not just one tattoo on the hip or back — the ones that covered arms and legs +. And they loved them, wanted to talk about them, tell how much or how little pain there was in the process. (Is this a form of needle play?)

dievca felt a little weird, looking at the pieces up close and it dawned on her that most of her age group doesn’t have tattoos or they have a shamrock on their ankle.  Is it an age thing? A CA thing? dievca doesn’t know~

If you are not into getting a tattoo, you can always do tattoo lingerie:

But the sets of tattoo lingerie dievca really liked were the true tattoos covering mastectomy scars:

Not breaking Fashion rules: finally understanding why

There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

In the early 1900s, the rule about only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day was started according to the vacationing schedule of the elite, when there “was a dress code for practically every occasion.” Those who could afford it would leave their homes behind and spend months at the sea or in the mountains, where they had a completely different type of wardrobe, including the light, bright white pieces most associated with the summer months. When those fun-loving summer days were over, the white clothes were packed away and the people went back to their regular lives, having escaped the oppressive heat between the end of May and early September. Those white clothes that they loved during the summer months had no place in their “real life” wardrobes, so the cutoff for white clothing became Labor Day.

Nowadays, you may have started wearing white on the first 90F (32 C) day of year or earlier.

dievca thought she still avoided wearing white until after Memorial Day because it was the “rule”, but she finally realized that she uses white sparingly—period, because….its New York City.

Can you imagine how dirty this Helmut Lang Leather Slip Dress would get?

And that is the true reason dievca doesn’t really break the “white” rule.

Happy Memorial Day! (and wear white for dievca)

Sporty~ changing it up.

Imagine her surprise when she put on her new backpack (note: a pen exploded in the orange backpack…) for the morning ride and was told that her new eyeglass frame color matched the backpack trim perfectly…

Matchy/Matchy~ she’s not sure how she feels about it. 

What is your opinion?


here we go again! (derby dress?)

Desperately desiring a yellow dress — knowing the color is awful on me.
Wait, its more of a mustard yellow, right?!?!? I can do that…
Like I said, desperate~
Or maybe its just the beach in the background.

OK, I am an audible learner so I am going with #5 Audible, odds 8-1.

 

 


“Don’t be a Kook.” (but I am one….)

Kook, noun. Pronunciation: kük : An individual with no understanding of the social and sartorial norms of surfing. In the water, a kook’s cluelessness can aggravate or endanger other surfers; on occasion, kooks can even be recognized solely by the faux pas they commit out of the ocean.

That’s me!
The dievca who doesn’t know how to surf and is desperate to get out NYC and hit the beach.

The one following the advice: to avoid becoming old, you must try new things.
dievca wants to look good while being the “newbie”. As there are “snow bunnies” on the ski slopes — dievca wants to be a “Surf Bunny” on the beach.
