- Dries van Noten Teal Crocodile Derby’s $890 for $366 (now $240 – size 38 run more like an 8.5)
- Dries van Noten Snakeskin Platform Sandals $885 for $646 (sold out elsewhere)
- Laura Manoogian Brown Bow Pants $350 for $249 (Cheaper elsewhere, but the size was too large for dievca)
The Derby’s were too large, so they had to be returned. The pants will be worn in the Winter – they are a heavy knit.
The Sandals are being worn on this trip with:
- Eddie Bauer White Jeans $80 for $55
- Dries van Noten Floral Tee Shirt eBay $80
The customs re-imbursement bought:
- Dries van Noten purple knit bra and briefs $220 for $114 and $280 for $109
- Acne Studios Star Bag $250 for $98
- Pearls Before Swine Simple Silver Ring Set $250 for $137
Now, before you pass judgement on the amount spent…remember that dievca sold items this month at Buffalo Exchange for $300, the RealReal for $1250, and has 6 items out to Decades in LA. Plus two items have sold on eBay during dievca’s travels = $200.
$1488 bought, $1750 sold + with more listed.
And if you are interested – Master thinks dievca’s machinations for reducing and rebuilding her closet are hilarious.

dievca didn’t look pregnant and received multiple compliments on the dress. Note – its been long enough since Melania Trump wore the Big Pink Dress (2017) and its still in style. Plus, it was the perfect choice for an outdoor event.
Wipe the sweat off that brow – whew!

dievca has an outdoor event to attend. The 1st of its kind in a year +.
Even after the never-ending process of reducing her closet – she has a number of items available to wear – IF THEY FIT WELL. Health and movement-wise, dievca is in pretty good shape. Deep sleep (physical recovery sleep) and perimenopause-wise, her body shape has shifted – a belly has appeared. Her closet hasn’t shifted to keep up with it because she wants to see what happens with menopause and HRT.
God, what to wear without looking pregnant.
Before she goes digging deep – here is what she thinks will fit easily:
Eliza Faulkner Cotton Sissy Dress
Loup Charmant Hydrus Dress Cadmium Red
Faithfull the Brand Sonja Dress
Then there is the question of a matching mask~
Cross-fingers. dievca will let you know what she finally decides to wear.

What Is the Difference Between Style and Fashion? There is an overlap between style and fashion, but a good rule of thumb is that style relates to the individual, while fashion is more collective.
”Fashion” is tangible clothes, the ones you see in stores, in magazines, and on celebrities.
“Style” is intangible.
‘Style is how you take the fashion and interpret it into an outfit or look that makes you feel like you. It’s not all about the fashion or trends but rather accepting yourself, working with what flatters your figure, finding what tickles your fancy and wearing wearing what makes you confident.’
, certified image consultant, personal stylist and speaker.
Why is dievca pondering this difference?
she wants to determine the ratio of classic clothing vs. fads she needs in her closet to look unique.
she doesn’t want a uniform, but she doesn’t want too keep ten million pieces, either.
The Marie Kondo credo doesn’t make dievca feel comfortable – but the ’30 use’ rule seems to apply better.
Will you use an item approximately 30 times in your Life? If yes, keep it.
Is that enough to create dievca’s style using Whering? Probably.

Is she going to keep it all? dievca is not sure – she has her receipts, but she got rid of 10 + items from her closet and is promising you all that she will remove 5 more, before she keeps anything.
Please note that she was holding on to Spring/Summer Clothes which were 7+ years old….a clear out and revamp was needed.
Did you need to do a clear out? Any suggestions of “keepers” for dievca?
Did you note there wasn’t much black? Those patent leather Puma shoes are navy….
(and if you want to know what she bought – just ask)

Usually dievca does it better. she hasn’t been on it. her planning for Presentation Outfits for Master has dropped while He is away and her outfit planning for events has been non-existent…
It all started with a panic attack for the last Gala of the year. The dress dievca wanted to wear, a multicolored silk jersey Etro, wasn’t found (and she still hasn’t found the damn dress….not happy).
After an irritated meltdown moment and two Alice + Olivia dresses being banished to the resale bag — dievca came up with an alternative of a Lanvin Silk Dress (Ete 2006) and black Charles Jourdan Heels, dressed down with brass accents:
Next panic attack — forgotten dinner for a High School Graduate. Fastest way to get there after work is on a bike, weather was “iffy”. Hot during the day and cooling off at night.
dievca’s Humanoid silk Ellen dress (2013) came to the rescue with the same brass jewelry (Hey, it was already together, in a bag, and easy to grab). J Crew Navy blue ribbed cashmere sweater for the cool restaurant, Barneys Sandals and Liebeskind Navy Leather Backpack for the ride…whew!
Two events down — two to go!
A wedding and a 60th Surprise Birthday Party.
dievca will be back with the plans for those two events.
Just incase you wanted to know what the underpinings looked like:
Black Cosabella Soire set for the Lanvin Dress
Navy Wolford Linea set with slip for the Humanoid Dress

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?
