Yee-Ha (causing Master to laugh)

dievca has 6 pairs of boots sitting on the kitchen table sorted for resale.  They are favorite boots that were a size 7-7.5, she now needs a size 8 to hold her right foot.

Here’s what is leaving – you’ve seen these on the blog (roll over the photos to see the brands):

dievca had success on eBay finding the Rodeo Brava Motorcycle Boots in the next size ($40), she’s eye-balling the Roberto del Carlo blue suede boots on eBay, two sizes up – nib.

she’d like to get a pair of cowboy boots and the red ones above caught her eye, they are the Free People New Frontiers Western Boots in red $148she thought they would make Master laugh. He is always entertained by dievca’s boots.

But dievca cannot justify buying those cute red boots because she owns these Chloe Rylee Python Booties in red:

Chloe Rylee Python Print Leather Ankle Boots


Ah, well.


the ride home


Yes, its ridiculous in the realm of Life and Life’s current challenges – but – dievca finally feels like she has mastered a comfortable & clean look for traveling. A personal success.

Santa Fe – dievca style

dievca had two days in Santa Fe to wander the downtown area. she was having a foot issue after walking the trails in Sedona, so her choices were driven by shoes:

Outfit #1 – Museums and Shopping

Outfit #2 – Dinner and Music

dievca bought the red sneakers and two other items:

20210811_132126

Golightly Cashmere Rainbow Oversized Scarf $405 modelNew Mexico Red Tee

  • Golightly Cashmere (Designed and Made in Santa Fe) Rainbow Wrap
  • New Mexico Flag Red T-shirt

What the Customs Duty paid for~

  • Dries van Noten Teal Crocodile Derby’s $890 for $366 (now $240 – size 38 run more like an 8.5)
  • Dries van Noten Snakeskin Platform Sandals $885 for $646 (sold out elsewhere)
  • Laura Manoogian Brown Bow Pants $350 for $249 (Cheaper elsewhere, but the size was too large for dievca)

The Derby’s were too large, so they had to be returned. The pants will be worn in the Winter – they are a heavy knit.

The Sandals are being worn on this trip with:

  • Eddie Bauer White Jeans $80 for $55 
  • Dries van Noten Floral Tee Shirt  eBay $80

The customs re-imbursement bought:

 

  • Dries van Noten purple knit bra and briefs $220 for $114 and $280 for $109
  • Acne Studios Star Bag $250 for $98
  • Pearls Before Swine Simple Silver Ring Set $250 for $137

Now, before you pass judgement on the amount spent…remember that dievca sold items this month at Buffalo Exchange for $300, the RealReal for $1250, and has 6 items out to Decades in LA. Plus two items have sold on eBay during dievca’s travels = $200.

$1488 bought, $1750 sold + with more listed.

And if you are interested – Master thinks dievca’s machinations for reducing and rebuilding her closet are hilarious. 

“Diversity, dievca, Diversity”


Go West, my dievca, Go West!

Packing for the trip

dievca is doing it! she is going on a trip that does not involve staying with her Mom, and the guilt has already set in… It’s been fun to pile ALL the clothes she wanted to take on the bed and then weed out a curated selection. And because dievca has tried on EVERYTHING in her closet – all the choices fit well. she’s good to go!


An upgrade on (1996) Candie’s

Dr. Scholl’s  were bad enough!

On the Edge with Louis Vuitton

Fashion in the submissive’s favor – Spring Summer 2021 Louis Vuitton is offering elegant collars with padlocks and chunky chains:

#1 – The polished LV Edge necklace Cadenas presents an iconic Louis Vuitton signature while embracing a contemporary feel. This piece features a large padlock pendant meticulously engraved with the LV Initials, suspended from a thick link chain. The pendant is opened and closed by pushing the lock.

#2 – With slightly smaller chain links than its sister pieces in the line, this LV Edge necklace MM makes a subtler, though no less striking impression. On this scale, the meticulousness of the Monogram engravings in rows along the links is truly exceptional. An LV Initials-engraved lobster clasp makes a secure and elegant closure.

A bold statement of showing your BDSM leanings in public without anyone the wiser.


Master laughed

dievca was a vision in green with the Xirena Aiden cotton gauze dress in Juniper:

The dress wasn’t the problem – it was that she added these two items to the mix:


What grounded the Green Monster? Nike Thea Print Comic:

Shopping the closet worked…

dievca didn’t look pregnant and received multiple compliments on the dress. Note – its been long enough since Melania Trump wore the Big Pink Dress (2017) and its still in style. Plus, it was the perfect choice for an outdoor event.

Wipe the sweat off that brow – whew!


Fashion vs. Styling: they are not the same.

What Is the Difference Between Style and Fashion? There is an overlap between style and fashion, but a good rule of thumb is that style relates to the individual, while fashion is more collective.

One Dapper Street Fashion vs Style

”Fashion” is tangible clothes, the ones you see in stores, in magazines, and on celebrities.
“Style” is intangible.
‘Style is how you take the fashion and interpret it into an outfit or look that makes you feel like you. It’s not all about the fashion or trends but rather accepting yourself, working with what flatters your figure, finding what tickles your fancy and wearing wearing what makes you confident.’Laurie Brucker, certified image consultant, personal stylist and speaker.

Why is dievca pondering this difference?
Fashion vs style 2she wants to determine the ratio of classic clothing vs. fads she needs in her closet to look unique.
she doesn’t want a uniform, but she doesn’t want too keep ten million pieces, either.
The Marie Kondo credo doesn’t make dievca feel comfortable – but the ’30 use’ rule seems to apply better.
Will you use an item approximately 30 times in your Life? If yes, keep it.

Is that enough to create dievca’s style using Whering?  Probably.


Heels for Presentation

dievca did present in heels during the past year.
But, she hasn’t thought about buying new heels in a long time.
A quick look around the web didn’t offer anything to trip dievca’s interest.
she may have to go back to 2019 and find these Rupert Sanderson Pumps.

Let’s Talk Shoes – a short History

Shoes have, through history, revealed much about the wearer – from their social status to their sexual appetite…

Status

Shoes have long been great indicators of your social standing and wealth. From the 13th century a new pair of shoes was only available to the wealthiest or highest ranking members of society: shoes were handmade by skilled craftsmen, using prohibitively expensive materials. As such it was inevitable that shoes were seen as a status symbol.

Poulaine

The medieval poulaine, for example – a long, pointed shoe worn by both men and women was a style taken to the extreme by gentlemen of wealth: a poulaine that posed a hindrance to walking, and made climbing stairs almost impossible, immediately indicated that the wearer was a man of independent means who didn’t need to work and therefore concern himself with sensible footwear.

The longer versions were also expensive and difficult to make, but many thought the style ridiculous and lewd, so sumptuary laws were passed capping toes to a mere 5cm (2 inches).

Tudor Foot Bag with SlashesBy 1500 the poulaine had all but disappeared, and was later replaced by the Tudor footbag. Characterized by its very wide toes, the shoe derived its name – and the alternative ‘cow’s mouth’ – due to its breadth. The girth of the shoe was again an indicator of status: note, for instance, the impressively wide shoes worn by Henry VIII.

Some shoes sported soles that reached a width of 17cm (6.5 inches), and again sumptuary laws were passed to curb this ‘excessive’ style.

Sexual proclivities

The long pointed toe of the medieval poulaine was not only an indicator of status, but also of the wearer’s masculinity – and, by inference, his sexual proclivities.

Winklepicker 1960The pointed toe has resurfaced numerous times through history. It’s apparent in the form of the winklepicker in the 1950 and 1960s – a pointed toe found on men’s shoes and often on women’s stiletto heeled court shoes, whose name was derived from the sharp pin used for prying winkles from their shells – and in designer Vivienne Westwood’s ‘penis shoe’ Spring/Summer 1995

Vivienne Westwood Penis Shoe SS 1995

Provocative

Pompadour Shoes 1750 V&A MuseumIn the 18th century, French fashion dominated. One particularly popular style of shoe was the high, French, ‘Pompadour’ heel. Named after Madame Pompadour, mistress to King Louis XV, this heel was incredibly narrow-waisted, and curved inwards under the foot. They were notoriously difficult to walk in, but made the most fantastic boudoir shoe. An 18th-century satirical poem said of them: “Mount on French heels, when you go to the ball – Tis the fashion to totter, and show you can fall.”

By the 1890s, heels on women’s shoes reached heady heights with the very fashionable style known as the Cromwell. This was a high-heeled shoe with a tabbed front and buckle, called the Cromwell in the mistaken belief that buckles were worn on the shoes of Oliver Cromwell and his followers in the first half of the 17th century. In reality, at that time his followers were wearing practical low-heeled leather shoes fastened with a latchet tie.

Cromwell Shoes Charles Hind 1889The extremely decadent Cromwell shoes could have heels up to 16 cm (6¼ inches). Such a high-heeled shoe caused consternation at the time. Wearers were ridiculed, and apparently cartoons of the day carried images of women needing sticks to walk, or helping hands either side of them.

Towards the end of the 1890s these exaggerated heeled shoes became very popular with women who entertained in the boudoir, thereby solving the problem of walking in them, but making them unwearable by ‘ordinary’ women.

Passion

White wedding slippers symbolize purity, and black is often worn for work or attendance at a funeral, but what about red?

Red has long been a significant and powerful color in part due to the expense involved in obtaining red dye. Red shoes were the prerogative of Roman senators and later, the emperor, and popes have worn red since the 13th century. Red-heeled shoes were also popular in the 17th century.

Red shoes also symbolize danger and passion, the very start of life, and the end.

Red Shoes tribute to victims of violence Photo-istock

Recently, across the world red shoes have been used to symbolize and protest violence against women.

Identity

Shoes can express identity, and indicate the cultural group to which the wearer belongs. As far back as Ancient Rome, all people were duty bound to wear the correct footwear – whether non-citizen, citizen, senator, priest or soldier. This meant you could see where individuals were positioned in society simply by the footwear they wore.

CaligaThe Roman soldier wore a style with an open toe and an open lattice upper, known as the caliga. It was a practical style, strong and well-ventilated for endless marching.

The emperor and high-ranking officials, on the other hand, wore the campagus – an open-toed boot, laced at the front.By Olivier Paris, re-enact Roman Campagus of about 100 B.C. For high ranking official

Red soles and heels equal power and identity – from the red heels of King Louis XIV, to the red soles of expensive Louboutin’s today. From the 1660s the flamboyant King Louis XIV of France became one of the most influential men in Europe, and was responsible for several fashion trends including the high red heel, either covered with red Morocco leather, or painted.

red heels of King Louis XIVRed was a symbol of wealth, only worn by the King and his court. The high heel not only elevated the short Monarch above the masses, but also alerted onlookers to his high status. Gradually the red heel filtered down through the classes and became a sign of fashionable sophistication.

The Quest: Chloé and white jeans

In 2016, Chloé x Net-A-Porter offered a collaboration in the form of a Denim Blue Cable-knit Cotton Sweater ($995). dievca was very interested in the sweater, but the only size available was an XL. she’s been watching the resale sites every since and a sweater came up for sale in her size. It’s now hers.

dievca was looking to add white wide-leg jeans. she bought a pair from J Crew, on sale.

she had this oufit in her mind before she saw this Street Style photo from Paris Fashion Week 2021:

dievca will add the pieces she already owns: Stand Studio Raincoat (2019), white leather Tretorns (2020) and Acne Studios Shiloh Bag (2014).


Lunar New Year 2021: Year of the Ox


The Lunar New Year, most commonly associated with the Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, typically falls sometime between January 21 and February 20 annually. Lunar New Year 2021 is tomorrow, February 12, and in terms of the Chinese zodiac animal, it’s the Year of the Ox.

It is called the Lunar New Year because it marks the first new moon of the lunisolar calendars traditional to many east Asian countries including China, South Korea, and Vietnam, which are regulated by the cycles of the moon and sun. The New York Times explains, “A solar year—the time it takes Earth to orbit the sun—lasts around 365 days, while a lunar year, or 12 full cycles of the Moon, is roughly 354 days.” As with the Jewish lunisolar calendar, “a month is still defined by the moon, but an extra month is added periodically to stay close to the solar year.” This is why the new year falls on a different day within that month-long window each year.

A Metal Ox Year combines an already diligent and strong Ox with the robust, firm, and wealthy characteristics of Metal, it heralds a year of incessant energy, effectiveness, and abundance! Take advantage of the toughness and vitality of the Metal element to accomplish your best work. Between the perseverance of the Ox and the fortitude of Metal, get the needed boost and enjoy a year of great success and productivity.

What to watch out for? The laser focus and determination of the Ox can lead to stubbornness and an unyielding approach which may result in missed opportunities. This will be a very dynamic and intense year, don’t miss the forest for the trees, try to strike a good balance, and don’t let that bullheadedness set in.

After a wild and erratic Year of the Rat, the Year of the Ox brings much-needed balance and strength. This is the time to be persistent and tireless, to tackle all ventures with the energy and stamina of the Ox. Here’s to a gratifying, booming, and prosperous Year of the Ox!

Note: SWATCH WATCH – Though giving a clock or watch as a gift is one of the biggest no-nos in Chinese culture because it symbolizes ‘running out of time’, a lot of watchmakers still released a Year of the Ox edition to welcome the Chinese New Year. So maybe buy it for yourself.

All others are good gifts to give or just go with the Red Envelope and Money. 🧧

dievca honored via Pantone 2021

Cariuma Brasil Pantone 2020 Colors

If you asked dievca what her favorite colors are – she’ll answer “Grey and Yellow” This has been true since her childhood in the 1970’s. Master started laughing when the 2021 Pantone Colors of the Year showed up.

So it should be a surprise to no one that the prognosticators at Pantone — those trend forecasters who scour the globe for months noting developments in clothing, cars, kitchens, coffee (the stuff that surrounds us) and translate it into a color they claim will be the dominant shade of the coming year — have chosen, as the color of the year for 2021 … two colors!

Which does not represent indecisiveness, but a metaphor. Get ready for Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. Or, in normal-speak: the light at the end of the tunnel.

Vanessa Friedman – The New York Times

As for those retro Cariuma Tennis Shoes above? The Brazillian Brand which hops on to the Pantone colors, yearly? dievca isn’t sure she has room for her two favorite colors….hmmm…maybe she has to make room. XO

la bella figura

In Italy, there’s an expression known as la bella figura, in which Italian natives not only dress to impress but also exhibit their brightest, best personalities when in the company of others. Libra transits help us achieve that kind of inner and outer beauty, making us feel like the fairest of them all.

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:
