Down the Rabbit Hole~

dievca ended up down the youtube rabbit hole….have you been there lately?

The final piece before she heads to bed:

Good Evening. XO


Oysho – Portuguese Lingerie

Oysho S/S 2017

dievca has been wandering around Lisbon, looking at storefronts, running into nothing which is Portuguese: Zara, Benetton, H&M, Nike, Intimissimi, etc.

Then she was reading about the Portuguese lace industry and learned that Oysho is a Portuguese brand that has supported the local lace industry, in the past. This year, they are showing more sporty, classic styles and dievca will be taking a look for everyday wear. Not as much lace.

Correction…though the Oysho used Portuguese lace for one of their collections…it turns out to be a Spanish brand. dievca is still looking for the Portuguese brands.

A stop at the shop is planned and dievca will let you know if anything is purchased – but today is “Beach Day” and dievca needs to put on her bikini (!) and pack her bag.


dievca’s 30 wardrobe classics

People can argue what is important in a closet. dievca has been thinking about Classics. she found that these 30 items are the Classics she is willing to spend on because they are used time and time, again. What are your Classics? Did dievca miss any?

(the photos are of pieces in dievca’s closet,  win or lose — she’s doing a closet revamp!)

It’s been 40 Years…

….since my Master’s preferred Hollywood Star doppelgänger debuted in the most irreverent sports movie directed by Oscar winner, Yale alumnus, George Roy Hill….

SLAP SHOT.
slap-shot
 
The movie, written by Nancy Dowd, premiered in New Haven — to silence and confusion.
If you are confused, SLAP SHOT is about a minor league ice hockey team that resorts to violent play to gain popularity in a declining factory town.
“The language is quite a bit beyond blue,” Newman said during a 1976 television interview NHL Network unearthed. “It’s heavy into purple almost. I don’t believe a thing is truly vulgar if it’s funny. Boy, it’s foul-mouthed, but it’s real and beautiful.”
 

 

 
It’s absolutely stupid and every time I see it, I laugh at something new and get a bit sad because I know that area of the country, I know the 1970’s minor leagues, I grew up seeing Western PA and its rawness. It’s a character driven movie — everyone is a little yucky, but strangely enticing —  train wrecks you cannot look away from.  
And did I mention the clothing choices are spectacular?

Thank goodness, VHS saved the movie from obscurity.

And a link from the NYT when Paul Newman passed away in 2008. Written about Reggie Dunlap – beloved: https://slapshot.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/09/27/hockey-mourns-the-passing-of-reggie-dunlap/?_r=0
