Melting – and not in a good way.

dievca had the brilliant idea of riding her bike to 60 Centre Street to reschedule her Jury Duty.
she thought it would save time and avoid sweltering in the subway.

Reviews of the subway:

“It’s like a wet sauna,” said Todd Ronin, 36, as he waited for the R train, “like a dirty wet sauna with all the germs and the lovely things you find here.”

Paul Pope, 40, an electrician lugging about 40 pounds of equipment with him. The sensation, he said, was not pleasant. “Do I look too pleasant? Look at me, I am drenched right now. I am so drenched.”

“If it’s humid, that’s the worst part, ’cause New York turns into a swamp,” said Diego Medina, 33, who was heading home toward Ditmas Park. “There’s something about the humidity in the city and the crowding, I think, just gets people, makes people a little more crazy.”

That bike ride?
A Bad Idea.
dievca was completely drenched with sweat, too.
Her dress, her underwear, her hair – everything was…..soaked.


Then she ran back to work and froze in the Air Condition because she was completely wet.

That brought to mind the 2005 NY Times Article about Luxury Retail vs. Low End Retail Air Condition temperatures. The findings were, the more exclusive and expensive the store, the lower the temperatures (click here for the article)

After melting, things did get better. dievca decided since she came home wet, she would just go up to the rooftop to soak up some sun. It was really windy up on the roof and that dried dievca’s dress quickly. Lying in a bikini for 45 min warmed up her fatty tissue (boobs and ass).

Pasta and kale salad for dinner.

Then dievca topped the evening off with a silly Pinot Grigio (the bottle made her smile) and a Good Humor Ice Cream sandwich (childhood memories)
Inspired!

Stay cool!


What to wear…killed the moment

So dievca bought a dress, in the Fall, from a Canadian designer, Eliza Faulkner – she had seen someone in the dress during NYC fashion week and loved it.
It’s cotton and great for warmer weather.
And then Melania Trump made a speech on Bullying – wearing a $3000 hot pink dress. Killed dievca’s desire to wear the dress…but she needs a dress for a Gala this evening and she is digging through the closet.

Weather: 63 F to 82 F, partly cloudy, will be on a boat – breezy. Evening.

Here are some of the choices (click on an item for greater detail):

 

The two darker green dresses are of heavier material, the pink and the light blue are 100% cotton, the red is silk, the light green is a cotton/poly blend, the Missoni is a mix of wool, silk, poly – etc. All are lined. I have shoes for them all and coats/jackets. Hair up or it will blow everywhere~

If you can give dievca some input, she would greatly appreciate it. dievca is uncharacteristically at a loss. Her brain is fried~

Lululemon Swifty Tech Tee

Dragonflies, normal come out in the heat of Summer and we are not there, yet. But, dievca ran into Dragonfly Green at Lululemon. and she will use the pieces through the heat of the summer. 

dievca gets to Lululemon, once, every 6 months. This time she went with a friend who is obsessed with Lulu gear. They spent an hour + in the store.

dievca had to buy this bra, for three reasons:

Lululemon Stash and Run Brareasons:

  1. It fits her well
  2. Her Grandma on the Slovak side was infamous for stashing items in her bra. dievca will laugh every time she wears it.
  3. The color looks good on dievca.

Now, if she can get it together to add make-up. Doubt it.

dievca’s friend was kind enough to stay an hour+ in Anthropologie, afterward, but that is for another post. They made their way to a party by NYU and gobbled up some ramen afterward (Ramen Takumi). As dievca’s friend was walking back to her car and dievca was starting to look for a cab, they spotted this in a florist’s window:

Beautiful, huh? Maybe something for dievca’s bedroom.  By the way, the peonies are out!


What is a Camisole?

We spoke about tap pants (french knickers), two weeks ago — something that is often worn with taps pants is a Camisole.

Camisoles are tops with thin, adjustable spaghetti straps. A camisole is similar to a chemise, but shorter in length. It may be tight fitting or loose, but is more fitted than a “Babydoll”.  The length of a camisole can range from exposing the midriff to falling below the pelvic area.

The camisole evolved from a garment called a corset cover, and it retains a feminine look not seen in similar garments like tank tops.

A camisole is known as a cami for short.

Most camisoles are made from light fabrics such as nylon, satin, silk, cotton, spandex, or lycra. Many are trimmed in lace which helps enhance their aesthetic appeal and make them seem more modest when worn underneath low-cut blouses and dresses.

Traditional camisoles offer little support for the bust. Some women, especially those with large breasts, may prefer to wear a camisole over top of a brassiere. However, they can also be worn without this extra piece of lingerie. Camis developed in the late 1980’s had built-in underwire bras or other structures for added support. Camisoles which have shaping features for the bust, torso, or waist are known as “control” camisoles.

While originally designed as an undergarment, some women now choose to wear camisoles as part of their outfits. As a top with jeans, pants, shorts, a skirt – or under a suitcoat, etc.


here we go again! (derby dress?)

Desperately desiring a yellow dress — knowing the color is awful on me.
Wait, its more of a mustard yellow, right?!?!? I can do that…
Like I said, desperate~
Or maybe its just the beach in the background.

BTW – is this Gen Z yellow? You know the color that is overcoming Millennial Pink?

I wrote this and forgot today is the Kentucky Derby. I need to choose a horse:

OK, I am an audible learner so I am going with #5 Audible, odds 8-1.

 

 


Good Mornin’, Good Moooornin!

Finding a Way (Presentation Outfit)

dievca is curvy.

That makes wearing certain styles a trick. And normally, dievca just avoids those styles.

For instance,
a 1960’s Go-Go mini-skirt shift dress:

It is a style dievca avoids….
until she saw Master looking at a museum exhibition of them with fondness.
Obviously, the fashion holds some great memories for Him.

So, now she has taken on the Go-Go Dress as a Presentation Outfit for Master.

dievca plans to buy one and get it altered to her curves as best as possible
or she might have a friend make her a dress with a vintage pattern.
Then it will be the quest for Go-Go Boots.
Poufy hair and cat eyes are not a problem.

Add a little groovy music and maybe dievca will swing her Master’s memories back here:

“Very often in the old fashion style of dancing, we may not feel particularly in a romantic mood and yet, very often, our partner would grab us and dance very close and hold us so closely – and I like this because, your know, we can completely keep it arms length and dance however we please, and ah – I really like that.”

Hopefully, Master will dance with His dievca at arms length
and then invite her to sit on His lap.
Perhaps His hands will wander up her mini-skirt.
We will see!
