There is a lot going on in this Presentation. dievca imagines the look hides imperfections, yet offers an opportunity to play dressed or peel the onion-layers to find a gift. she’ll be digging through the closet to recreate something similar for Master.
Does anyone know who the Actress/Starlet is?
dievca was looking for a little submissive elegance and ran into this advertisement from the Cigar Institute of America. Their message is interesting on many levels: Why just single girls? Is she a gold digger? Does she just want to be taken care of like a good cigar? Can you truly justify that starting to smoke cigars young will keep you young? She does look older than he does. If you don’t inhale you can still enjoy the rich flavor – is that like not swallowing in fellatio? Hmm – much to think about~

Lucie Ann lingerie was founded in 1947 by Lucie Ann Onderwyzer (1913-1988). She became renowned for her extensive use of nylon tricot peignoirs trimmed with marabou. Based in Beverly Hills, California, her lingerie found favor with the stars, and was featured in the TV series Green Acres, being worn by star Eva Gabor. After Onderwyzer’s death, the business was sold, and the label changed to Lucie Ann II. This line is still in production.

“I like lots of things. But there are three things I like most. Love, love and love.” — Anita EkbergPosted: May 27, 2021
I’m very much bigger than I was, so what? It’s not really fatness, it’s development.
“Well, my boss said that if I didn’t like working under him, I should look for another position.”
Hmm~ not exactly appropriate for many reasons from a boss, but appropriate if it was your Sir/Madame.
It’s a slow morning in NYC – clouds are hanging low.
The perfect time for elegant non-sense before the grind begins.
The 1974 female cover-version is stunning.
Might be something for a Presentation Out in the future.

A B movie or B film is a low-budget commercial motion picture that is not an arthouse film. In its original usage, during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the term more precisely identified films intended for distribution as the less-publicized bottom half of a double feature (akin to B-sides for recorded music).
Mari Blanchard, was an American actress, known for her roles as a B movie femme fatale in American films of the 1950s and early 1960s. In the late 1940s, Blanchard was a successful print model and film extra. Blanchard began appearing in films after she was seen by a producer in an advertisement for bubble bath in 1950.
Blanchard soon found success as an actress. From 1951 to 1952, she took small roles in a number of films at MGM, RKO, and Paramount, until she was signed by Universal-International in 1952. Her first film at the studio was Back at the Front (1952). One of her most memorable roles was the Venusian queen, Allura, in the 1953 comedy Abbott and Costello Go to Mars. She starred in Destry (1954), a western with Audie Murphy. In 1955, she starred in “Escape From Fear”, an episode of the television series Climax! Her hottest and most glamorous film was The She-Devil in 1957.
In the 1960–1961 television season, Blanchard starred as Kathy O’Hara in the NBC Western series Klondike with Ralph Taeger, James Coburn, and Joi Lansing. She also appeared as Margarita Colinas with Cesar Romero in the Rawhide episode “Incident of the Stalking Death”. In 1963 she had a small but flamboyant role in the John Wayne film, McLintock!
After abandoning her film career upon the release of her final film, McLintock! in 1963, Blanchard retired, acting in just a few TV programs afterward. She was diagnosed with cancer in the 1960s. Following a long struggle, she died at the age of 43.

“After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery.
It’s better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe.
Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.”
