Did you ever wonder?

Where those drastic Goth Platform Boots came from?

 

If Doc Martens are not enough for your Goth-vibe.

Opening Ceremony is offering the brand “New Rock

(click photo to purchase)

New Rock is a footwear brand from Spain that has been in the shoe-making business since 1929. The label is known for their alternative, goth, and biker-style boots, featuring thick platform rubber soles, over-sized tongues and bold metallic accessories.

They are not really for Master’s dievca – but perhaps a Goth BDSM – someone out there with a want or a need.

What dievca would like as a gift…


Master asked what dievca wanted for the Holidays~
Now dievca is answering beyond “you”.

Make a statement in Aquazzura‘s red crocodile-effect leather Brera boots. This bright pair hits just below the knee – a key style for the season – and features a round toe and a mid-high heel. Let them stand out alongside muted hues.

Shown here with Joseph Fort crepe dress, Joseph Ryder 25 leopard-print calf-hair bag and Alighieri Leo gold-plated necklace.

Damn…that calf diameter is too small for dievca – Sigh. Maybe Master would consider this instead:

Chloé green leather Trench

 


Still on that Snakeskin kick~ Fashion

 

Click on a photo to see the Brand of the item. dievca owns (or owned) five items on the grid.

I guess you could say that she is a fan of Snakeskin in ALL of its renditions.


Snakeskin…

When Master said, “You will wear Snakeskin”,

dievca thought this:

 

she didn’t realize Master meant this:

“yippee ki yay” or “yippie yi yo kayah”

dievca got distracted by these two videos and the phrases
after buying a pair of cowboy boots and jeans jacket dress/coat.

But where does the yippee-ki-yay part come from?

The yip part of yippee is old. It originated in the 15th century and meant “to cheep, as a young bird,” according to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED). The more well-known meaning, to emit a high-pitched bark, came about around 1907, as per the OED, and gained the figurative meaning “to shout; to complain.”

Yip is imitative in origin but probably also influenced by the 16th century yelp, which has an even older meaning of “boasting, vainglorious speaking.” Yawp is even older, coming about in the 14th century, but now is primarily associated with Walt Whitman’s late 19th century “barbaric yawp.”

Yippee came about after yip. The earliest record of this exclamation of delight is from 1920 in Sinclair Lewis’s novel, Main Street: “She galloped down a block and as she jumped from a curb across a welter of slush, she gave a student ‘Yippee!'” (Ummm, by-the-way, Yippee beans are amphetamines.)

Yippie with an -ie refers to “a member of a group of politically radical hippies, active especially during the late 1960s.” The word, which originated in 1968, stands for Youth International Party and was modeled after hippie. (Good to know…dievca’s been spelling it wrong all these years~)

Now how about the phrase, yippee-ki-yay? It seems to be a play on “yippie yi yo kayah,” the chorus from the 1930’s Bing Crosby song, “I’m An Old Cowhand” (video above)

Were you still wondering what caused this Cowboy moment?
Western Wear is “in” and dievca has these upcycled boots:

After 5+ years, she’s ready to upgrade her Cowboy Yippee:



Lucky Brand Trucker Dress, on sale for $83 
Star Cowboy Boots,  handmade in blue….

Thank you to Angela Tung of The Week.


Can you see the difference?

They were at the end. dievca was using duct tape to keep the insides from tearing more. she had them for 4+ years, wore them, loved them and was still making excuses about how they looked ok on the outside.

she ripped her heart out and could only give them to Goodwill.  she couldn’t bear to put them in the trash.

Why?

she didn’t think that Cougar made them anymore and they were her favorite.
dievca was wrong.

They do make them ~ $200.00

And they are $70 less at Yoox.

Here’s the question:
Blackout or Classic Pillow?


Thanking the Danish when your feet are beat~

dievca walked a lot in Normandy and Brittany….hiking the cliffs, walking cities, walking to and around Le Mont Saint Michel, D-Day beaches, etc. She didn’t bring hiking shoes because of work and because she thought she would be in Paris.  Her tennis shoes did well, but she lost her flip-flops and her feet needed a break.

Her recent purchase of the  ILSE JACOBSEN Tulip Shoes ended up being fabulous. dievca had been unsure of the buy, but they completely gave her feet that much-needed break.  The soles flexes and gives a soft landing. Great for after a long day of hiking.
