Trainers, Trousers and a Slouchy Sweater

A pair of new KICKS set off an outfit for dievca. The outfit channels her downtown chic – look.  she knows her Master checks in with the blog and likes her other “looks” “Diversity, dievca, Diversity”, but….
Master prefers Ladylike when His dievca is presenting for Him.

Sneakers are not Ladylike~

Presenting the KICKS (Strenesse bought at a sample sale):

Here’s the rest of the outfit:

Strenesse Trousers Navy striped (bought at the same sample Sale)

Gucci Floral Semi-sheer Tee

Nili Lotan Cashmere Chunky Sweater

Navy Fox Socks

Strenesse Sneakers

Barneys Suede Camera Crossbody

Tom Ford Sunglasses

dievca must have been inspired by NYC “Street Style” or something because she ran into other people with the same idea. But she didn’t see her dark Monochromatic Look, so hopefully it will be different “chic”, not different “boring”.


They are not Ladylike….

but they are what dievca is on the hunt for~

Look she’s seen a lot of Military Combat boots in her past life, ones that have been broken in, used and cherished for comfort, polished, re-used. she never expected to get a wild-hair about owning a pair.

All the sudden her classic Motorcycle Boots don’t look….right.

So, dievca is on to:
Combat
Military
Army
Jump
BOOTS

And she cannot decide which pair to get…can you help?

Celticandco.com Wilderness Boots Diesel Blue

Dr. Martens Leather Mid-calf Combat Boots

Coach Womens Eddison leather Combat Boots

Rick Owens Suede Lace-up Military Boots

Diesel “the Wild Land Give” Suede Lace-up Boots

Timberland Whittmore Mid-lace Boots Jet Black

Caterpillar Alexi Black Ankle Combat Boots

All Saints Damisi Combat Boots


Rain, Rain – come my way!

Something to break the humidity, please.
Mind you, dievca is really not complaining — having 90% humidity, day after day from hurricane leftovers is absolutely nothing compared to being hit by the hurricane…

But if rain comes, it will release some of the tension in the air.

Maybe these Bernardo rain boots will help:

Leaving a Footprint

A gift for the Sir or Madame who appreciates fashion.
dievca picked this up at the Met for her Master.
A small touch of Fashion insider knowledge –what is it?

A quirky leather bookmark inspired by Japanese footwear. Celebrating The Costume Institute exhibition Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology at The Met, in which inventive creations by Maison Margiela were on view.

 

The cult fashion label expresses its creativity by recycling, transforming, and reinterpreting the quotidian in unexpected ways. The Tabi bookmark displays Maison Martin Margiela’s signature avant-garde sensibility. Handmade in France with the logo stamped in gold.

EDIT FROM OLIVIA KIM: “Always provocative and witty, Maison Martin Margiela accessories are fun and collectible. I love the Tabi bookmark, based on the insole from his iconic split-toe shoes. This is a perfect companion with the Manus x Machina exhibition catalog.”

And where does it come from?

The Footprint of the Iconic Tabi Boots –
A staple for Maison Margiela since A/W 1995-1996

dievca’s gift to Master for His last birthday.  He reads, a lot.


Going Retro: Block Party

dievca is having an interesting moment with the “Block Heel” sandals that have been in fashion for the past two years.
It’s a love/hate relationship.
she hated seeing the 1960’s ones on her aunts as they got older and didn’t update their closets in the 1980’s.
It reminded her of a fashion “no”.
Especially the white leather/pleather ones worn at weddings.

 

But now, they are back and the 1960’s version doesn’t look too bad, really.

dievca loves the pair of sandals she picked up, last summer:

See by Chloe block-heel sandal Red

and these, this summer:

Firth two piece black leather sandals

They are very comfortable and dievca can walk the City.
Maybe her Aunts were on to something when they couldn’t let the shoes go~

Time to wear the sandals to a Block Party!
