A dievca Who Lunches

dievca has a Luncheon to attend. It is not her normal scene – she doesn’t own a great suit…she’s out of practice on the ‘lunching’ circuit~ Yes, she did quite a bit while growing up. Mother/Daughter events, but not so much in recent years.

Ladies Who Lunch is a phrase often used to describe well-off, well-dressed women who meet for social luncheons, usually during the working week. Typically, the women involved are married and non-working. Normally the lunch is in a high-class restaurant, but could also take place in a department store during a shopping trip. Sometimes the lunch takes place under the pretext of raising money for charity.

Looking for a costume, uh hem presentation outfit, gah – just ideas for something to wear!

An “Anatomic Bomb” in Lingerie

“If I do demoralize an audience, as some people say, then I’m glad I do it.  People need a loosening up.  Most of the people in this country are hypocritical, too many put on a front of being shocked at certain kinds of behavior.  It’s a joke to think I could demoralize anyone with this little act.  If one has morals, then they can’t be taken away by me or anyone else.” ~ Lili St. Cyr

Some things are lost in translation…

Presentation Outfits…100 Years of Fashion in 2 minutes

dievca was looking to be inspired for Presentation Outfits: she ran into this video and it made her smile and think about options for Master. It seems like the most ‘ladylike’ outfits are from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

The 1910s are too covered and too involved for finding clothing pieces, the 1970s seem like novelty outfits – Disco-oriented, dievca lived the BIG HAIR era of the 1980s (she has a vintage Norma Kamali red satin dress…), the 1990s are back in style – now.

It was a long, arduous Saturday.
Please refer back to Saturday’s post
for where dievca’s mind has stopped.
(Does anyone have wine and all-ready-made chocolate cake for dievca?)


Sometimes simple is interesting.
