When Master said, “You will wear Snakeskin”,
dievca thought this:
she didn’t realize Master meant this:

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:

Thank you to Angela Tung of The Week.
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.
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?
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.

As women, we all have certain weaknesses.
I know one who can’t resist pretty shoes but has nothing suitable to wear with them.
Others adore frilly lingerie but never have any money to buy outer clothing.

OK. Its fun. It’s flowers. Its over-the-top.
So where do you wear something like this?
There is nothing subtle about this Irregular Choice sandal. This limited edition soccer slide is for those who want to stand out. The Floral Footsie is made from a bouquet of fabric flowers. If you are one who loves over-the-top embellishments, the Floral Footsie needs to find a way into you closet.
