Chain the Moon!

Photo: dievca NYC a little shy of the full moon 11/2020

The Beaver Moon will occur on Nov. 30, 2020 and will reach its fullest phase Monday morning, Nov. 30, at 4:30 a.m. Eastern time.

As the moon is becoming full early Monday morning, there will be a partial lunar eclipse — known as a penumbral eclipse. While it’s not as dramatic as a full lunar eclipse, it could be visible here on the East Coast and in other areas of North America.

A penumbral eclipse takes place when the moon drifts through the outer section of Earth’s shadow, or penumbra, and part of the sun’s rays are blocked from shining on the moon during that time, according to astronomy experts at EarthSky.org.

dievca caught an early glimpse of what is to come, heading home from the gym last night.  Looks lovely in Chains.


Well connected~


Elegant from any angle.
Ready, able, open –
yet locked down.
Patient for attention.
Patient for You.


Links with Machete Jewelry

dievca saw the following photo somewhere – liked the outfit and then focussed on the necklace.
Chains, chunky, YES!

So, dievca went hunting for the necklace and found it could be pre-ordered at http://www.ShopMachete.com

Master was looking for a Birthday gift for His dievca and she told him about the necklace. she also mentioned an anklet.

The chains can be interchanged. The Gold large link can be removed, the anklet added to make a larger necklace – interchangeable parts to make things interesting.

Features:

  • Heavyweight. 14k Gold & Sterling Silver Plated Brass
  • Handmade and engraved logo
  • Removable links to add and subtract for a longer necklace or create a bracelet

Low Key NYC and trying to get it moving~

dievca’s Parents wiped her out on her last visit. she came back a disaster health-wise and didn’t have much mental bandwidth left for nice, but needy people. As a result, she passed on two Holiday Parties and has been laying low in her ‘hood.

Pulling the introvert in recovery-mode option.

Working, running small errands, wrapping Holiday gifts, feeding her cold/sinus infection with homemade soup, reading, etc. The furthest she’s been from her pad is Master’s – and that was for coddling and assisting Him with buying and wrapping family gifts.

Well, the momentary introvert will be turning back into an extravert on Monday evening for a Holiday Party she cannot miss – workplace politics-wise…

Turn it on, dievca!

dievca’s skin has recovered, her eyes are de-puffed, Pedi/Mani in place – but she is eschewing sparkles – opting for leather and chains.

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.


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)

A way to drop $600 in SoHo

dievca had to run to SoHo for a gift that could only be bought in a store located there. she rarely goes to that neighborhood and decided that she would wander into a few places that are not normally on her radar. Also, she would allow herself to splurge if she found something amazing.

Planned visits:
Peter Hermann — a great leather handbag store
BREYDO — luxury fragrances, body care, candles – where she needed to buy the gift
A.P.C. — clothing brand from France
Bershka — inexpensive clothing, Spain
Maison Close — Lingerie

Two stores that closed:
LeSportSac
DKNY

dievca stopped by COS, & Other Stories, Agent Provocateur, Karl Lagerfeld, Camper, Wolford plus Intermix on the way thru~

 

After seeing nothing interesting to buy, dievca was feeling smug — until her eyes were caught by a jewelry boutique window which offered a significant chain necklace on black velvet.

It was stunning.

she stepped in to the store and there were many lovely items which hinted at BDSM – chains, handcuffs, etc.

dievca was enticed by a simple chain ring design that came in three finishes:


she bought three rings, one in each finish — to be worn separately or stacked. A quiet nod for her submission to Master – with a slightly edgy vibe.

As dievca was paying, she realized that she had written a blog post in 2014 about this Brazilian jewelry designer, Jack Vartanian. At that time. the pieces he offered were all 14K and 18K gold — beautiful and expensive.  The pieces that dievca bought are sterling silver with 18K and rhodium finishes. Much less expensive, but still beautiful.

Mmm, D/s symbolism easily done in public~

It’s always a joy to blatantly show your submissive side in public. The desire to be chained by your Sir or Madam is presented to but not understood by the general public.

Miaou does the blatant/subtle BDSM well:

$385 from ShopBop.

 


possessed by the will

 “I do not want to be the leader.
I refuse to be the leader.
I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness.
I want a man lying over me, always over me.
His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work,
his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot.
I don’t mind working,
holding my ground intellectually, artistically;
but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated.
I don’t mind being told to stand on my own feet,
not to cling, be all that I am capable of doing,
but I am going to be pursued, fucked,
possessed by the will of a male at his time,
his bidding.”

― Anaïs Nin


Chains of Love: Alexander Wang

Does your submissive/ slave love to be restrained?
and to be chained?

Alexander Wang offers a way to show your ownership in a simple, clean and elegant way:

dievca has talked about this Alexander Wang Collection from the Accessories standpoint.

she has two pieces of her own:


she just thought other submissives, slaves, Masters and Sirs might be interested to know about the pieces.

Another elegant way to show your BDSM leanings.


Bold submissive Day Collar: Jennifer Fisher

Can you be BOLD and a submissive at the same time?
Yes.
Can you wear a BOLD symbol of your ownership in public?
Yes.

Gold-plated and Silver-plated Chain Collars by Jennifer Fisher available at the OutNet.

And if you would like more subtle offerings:


What does it mean?

A biker?
(with all that hardware blowing in the wind?)
Weight-bearing exercise?
(only on one side?)
Someone who loses their keys?
(can you find them?)

Look, dievca mentioned she likes being chained, but even she was boondoggled by this one…
(actually, look up close, it is quite artful.)


Then you find the real deal….(per the 03/07 elfje)

she does ladylike for her Sir
she does downtown chic for herself
but sometimes she just wants to let it rip
and rock her BDSM raw

Attica – Alexander Wang – Subversive Statement?

Named after a city in Greece?
A restaurant in Melbourne, Australia?

Or the maximum security prison in New York State…

With one of the worst pieces of American Racial History occurring in 1971 with the prisoner uprising and crushing control tactics. (NBC.com article with Heather Ann Thompson, Historian at the Univeristy of Michigan.)

dievca loves the chains and lock details. she loves the shapes offered by the pieces. she is intrigued by the thought that perhaps Alexander Wang is making a statement with every piece worn or carried.

What do you think?

What’s in a name? Shiloh by ACNE

What’s in a name? dievca was obsessed with the Acne “Shiloh” bag. she didn’t see it when it came out in 2010 — she had to search out resale sites to successfully add the bag to her collection. dievca bought the brown version in 2015.

As a submissive who loves to be chained, the hardware store links speak to her. The leather reminds her of Master’s Collar and Cuffs. The bag brings to mind where dievca finds her peace; restrained, connected and sitting at Master’s knee.

ACNE Shiloh Black Crossbody Bag 3

ACNE Shiloh Black Crossbody Bag 2

ACNE Shiloh Black Crossbody Bag

Shiloh (Heb: שִׁלוֹ ,שִׁילֹה ,שִׁלֹה, and שִׁילוֹ variably) was an ancient city in Samaria mentioned in the Hebrew Bible. It was the major cultic centre of Israel before the first Temple was built in Jerusalem.

The meaning of the word “Shiloh” is unclear. Sometimes it is translated as the Messianic title that means He Whose It Is or as Pacific, Pacificator or Tranquility that refers to the Samaritan Pentateuch. Regardless, the name of Shiloh the town is derived from שלה (shala) and may be translated as Tranquility Town (or Fair Haven or Pleasantville).

As the bag’s design inspires peace in dievca’s D/s mind —
ACNE’s choice of name is inspired.
Tranquility + Haven = Peace
“Shiloh”

Attached…with Chloé.

A dievca in red wearing her Master’s chain.
Elegant and delightful.
Bound as His submissive.

One of her favorite positions.
Something that cannot always be maintained.
But a chain worn crossbody?
Over the shoulder?
Attaching a lead to the O-Ring for closure?

Would be a perfect reminder of dievca’s place.
