Beach, options.

Beach Football – Los Angeles Public Library

Hmmm, the humidity has dropped. The first college football game has been played.
dievca is still interested in heading to the beach.
Maybe she can combine the summer and fall activities together?
Nah, after last night, she’d rather just sleep in the sun.

With shoes in the leading role,
acting as confidence catalyst and mood engine,
Marskinryyppy offers an experience.

This was the motive that Texan-born designer Nicole Brundage had when she launched the brand for SS15.
Nicole’s career trajectory began with a Stanford degree, followed by fashion training at the Istituto di Marangoni, and working as a clothing designer for designers Giorgio Armani and Zac Posen. It was in her first-time collaboration designing shoes with Manolo Blahnik for Zac Posen that she decided to move to Italy and launch her own eponymous line, Nicole Brundage (debut fw2006) and Acrobats of God (debut SS2010).

Over the course of these years, she simultaneously consulted as a shoe designer for fashion houses such as Ferragamo, Hogan, and Furla. These experiences gained her inherent understanding of seductive and playful elegance that is Marskinryyppy.

Note: Marskin ryyppy (lit. The Marshal’s drink/shot; Swedish: Marskens snaps) is a strong alcoholic drink of Finnish origin, served as a schnapps.

Open House Projects Jewelry

Open House Projects jewelry is designed by Monika Wyndham in New York. Designs usually start their lives as sketches on paper and are eventually carved in wax somewhere between the Catskills and New York City. New work is often made at odd hours, and sometimes in hotels, on picnic benches, and in cars. Open House jewelry often features moving parts, pieces that fit together in satisfying ways, and design elements with utility like handmade clasps and closures. Our aim is to make design objects with integrity that feel good to wear and are nice to interact with. We respect the inimitable nature of something that is made by hand.

We are glad to work closely with family-owned businesses and skilled jewelers in New York City to take each of our designs from concept to completion. Our pieces are cast in certified recycled metals using the lost wax method


Taming the Wild

dievca went with the Catherine Deneuve swept-back bob throughout the winter when she could control her hair.

Summer brings on NYC’s heat and humidity and the curls attached to dievca’s head start to spring out.

Master is pleased. He loves His dievca’s curls and D/s play has a way of making those curls explode with Joy.

That extra hair explosion is tough to control in a glamorous way and tucking dievca’s hair in a baseball cap doesn’t work with a bike helmet.

Thank goodness that hair accessories are making a HUGE comeback.

Now, dievca has used the lovely piece Master gave her for her birthday:

Lauren Landa Wisconsin Moonstone Hairpin

That hairpin is fabulous for an “earthy” look,
but dievca needs some contemporary options to present in.
Tort Hairware from the UK offers those interesting options:

Tort is your hair’s best friend. The item you reach for when you want to feel cute, need to make your day (or outfit) better, or hate everything in your wardrobe. Think of us as a jewellery box for your locks.

Long, short, afro, curly, weave, black, blonde, pink, grey: we don’t discriminate. Our clips have been tested on all hair types meaning there’s something for everyone.

Tort was founded in London by Mona Ghafoori in 2019 after demand from her friends for clips that both hold well, and look cool. The clips are named after powerful women in her life, from a septuagenarian style icon to a trendsetting two-year-old. Life’s too short to have boring hair.


Stockings + Stiletto Sandals = a dievca disaster

dievca was setting up a Presentation Outfit for Master and couldn’t find the correct suspender belt. After 20 minutes of digging without success, she moved on to Presentation Outfit #2.

It was a repeat of a past Outfit, but it channeled the 2019 Summer Solstice!

dievca needed to wear nude stockings for three reasons:

  1. Master loves stockings
  2. Stockings allow easy access in a visually pleasing way
  3. dievca isn’t scheduled to be waxed until next week…..

Outfit Choice #2 was panning out nicely and dievca had some great shoes in mind!

Lanvin Chain-Embellished Stilettos from Summer 2010 — the sandals added a little heavy metal to cut the floral and lace sweetness.

dievca packed everything up, adding the gold play collar and lead. she made her way uptown to Master’s apartment.

Hartman Rose Gold Collar

Hartman Rose Gold Lead

When she arrived, dievca knelt before Master. They took a moment to connect and shift – then Master told dievca she had 5 minutes to change into His Presentation Outfit.

The timing worked well, all pieces of the Outfit slid-on easily, including the Lanvin Sandals.
It was when dievca tried to walk —

DISASTER!

dievca never took into consideration that wearing stockings in open, strappy, leather sandals would be VERY slippery.  she had to move at a shuffling mincing walk to make it back to Master. And when Master led dievca to the bedroom after Cock Worship. He guided her along with the lead at a good clip – she almost took herself and Him down! And the sound effects emitted from dievca’s mouth?
Not elegant, at all~

Master absolutely loved the heels, so they stayed on.

What’s the solution for next time?

Double-sided Tape!
(or grippy pads)

Another subtle way to show your BDSM leanings in Public.
