Celebrate those moments in gold Dolce & Gabbana
And for an early start in Holiday elegance:
It’s not just about the classic bomber anymore. Leather in all shapes and forms is making its way to Street Style snaps around the World. Take a look in your closet and see if there is leather lurking in the back corner. Air it out, condition it and if it’s got an 80’s vibe – rock it.
If there isn’t a leather piece to be had — take a look at the following for inspiration:

So…what was in your closet?
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,
but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
Sophia Webster designed her first pair of ‘Chiara’ sandals in Spring ’14 and the distinctive style is still included in an edit every season. This year’s versions include smooth leather, satin, patent leather or embroidery, set on a slim stiletto heel. The signature 3D butterfly wings at the back have a design that continues to the base of the shoe.

Do the shoes make you dance or does the dance call for the shoes?
(chicken and the egg issue…)
Some of dievca’s dancing shoes:
A lunch date at the Met.
What does a submissive wear?
What will Master’s dievca wear?
she cannot think…
she’s out of practice…
she just cleared out her closet…
Not to panic, there has to be something in there:
Thanks for helping dievca think it through.
And Master just reminded dievca – no toys in the bag. Bag check. XO
Tensile Strength in Spring Design
In compression spring design the spring’s resistance to being compressed is its “compressive strength,” while its “tensile strength” is its resistance to breaking due to stress. In extension spring design, tensile strength would be measured by the spring materials resistance to being pulled apart.
Balancing Cost and Tensile Strength
No matter how much stress is applied to springs in your application, its tensile strength is integral to maintaining functionality as well as increasing the life expectancy of your springs. The longer your springs last, the more cost-effective they ultimately are.
The other factor involved in spring cost is weight savings. The less amount of material used in the spring, the less it will cost. By minimizing the materials used and maximizing their efficiency and tensile strength, spring designers can create the most efficient spring design.
