Temperatures hit 91 F (33 C) on the day dievca and Master met for sushi, but the evening was cooler and as the sun went down the temperature was lovely.
dievca had dressed for comfort in a hand-blocked organic cotton caftan + red sneakers for her knee.

dievca is NOT feeling it.
Normally she embraces the Holidays and decorates at the beginning of December. The tree is in storage, the decorations are in storage, the Christmas Cards for the tips are not done, she is NOT motivated…
Except friends are coming over for dinner and they have children. Tomorrow morning, dievca will schlep her a** to storage and dig everything out, then clean house and set-up the Christmas decorations before making dinner.
Pick which Christmas Curmedgean fits….
dievca is starting to think through the outfits she might wear to Le Pavillon:
- Jade by Johnny Was Angelo Easy Dress
- See by Chloe Block Heel Ankle Strap Sandals
- Zimmerman 14K Aloha Beaded Hoop Earrings
- Jack Gomme Light Lami Cerise Backpack
This 100% silk dress is easy to throw on and works if its warm out. Master thought it was a good choice.
Two dinners with friends!

ATAYEF & VEAL BACON
Ilili was ‘hopping’ on a Tuesday Night. The bar, two large rooms and outside dining was full. Look, NYC – like other places, went through a long haul with COVID-19 numbers – NYC locals are ready to GET OUT. It was a beautiful vibe last night, and the amazing work from the Vaccine developers made it happen. A HUGE ‘Thank You’ to them.
(PS. Yes, the economy of NYC is based on tourism, but selfishly – not running into any tourists is a great treat.)
dievca had dinner at the Zodiac Room in Neiman Marcus Hudson Yards. It was a soft opening and the restaurant was empty. There were unlimited Popovers and dievca’s sparkling rosés were filled to the brim. All in all, a lovely evening.
What dievca wore:
She may not have looked good (she thinks she did), but she felt fabulous!
They had Popovers galore — and dievca knows that popovers are not good on the 2nd day, but she took one home to try again… Hmmm, did they give her the strawberry butter? Hah! They did!
On her way out of the store — dievca loved this sweatshirt (left), but it is handmade and $450…
And the Big Apple Le Creuset is cute (right), but it cannot compete with the one that dievca’s friend gave her for her birthday,,,
She has used it like crazy!
Did dievca tell you about her friend packing the Le Creuset dutch oven in her suitcase, coming from Europe and TSA thinking it was a —- well, something of interest. When dievca opened up her gift it was wrapped heavily in TSA tape.
Where was Master? He had friends in from the West Coast and they needed attention.
Not dievca’s worry, Thank goodness… instead she was heavily into the sparkling rosé.
dievca is not a cook, she bakes…
she WILL be cooking today because 5 friends are coming for dinner.
They are a “Meat and Potato” crowd, so she is keeping it simple:
- Fresh Vegetables with Dip, Cheese Plate and Chardonnay for Appetizers on the rooftop
- Baked Pork Chops (bone in), Green Beans, Rice and Norman Cidre for the Main Course
- Lemon Meringue Pie and Pinot Grigio or Coffee/Tea for Dessert
Wish her luck, but dievca does have a secondary strategy: Distraction via Clothing
And Plan C: Pizza and Beer
Perhaps you remember that dievca was born in “Fly Over” country….the middle of the USA to be precise. You might not have realized that Master was born in the Midwest, too. He left earlier than dievca did…
Every once in a while dievca likes to honor that heritage and last Friday was
Master’s Midwestern Moment
via dievca. dievca invited Master over for a dinner channeling a traditional Midwestern Meal and presentation.
On the Menu:
Fresh Cut Green Peppers and Tomatoes from the Fire Escape with carrots from the Farmer’s Market along with Goat Cheese and Wisconsin Rye Crackers.
Master brought the wine:
Conversation and cooking occurred for the next 1.5 hours.
Dinner was served at 6:30 pm sharp!
(a little late for the Midwest, but a 1/2 way point with NYC)
After Dinner a little more conversation and relaxing — no hurrying at all.
dievca perked up and asked Master if he would like some Apple Crumble, another glass of wine, a little cock worship or a presentation outfit.
Master chose the Presentation Outfit.
So dievca changed out of this:
Naked and waxed beneath with Master’s Drop Earrings and Burberry Zipper Heels:
Offerings to Master
2nd Round of Cock Worship
Aha Moment! Master gets even larger watching His dievca Orgasm
Multiple Orgasm Finish (for both parties)
The second dessert was offered after a time of odalisquescing and boneless relaxation:
Apple Crumble (Made with four types of apples from the Farmers Market):
Hopefully dievca did the Midwest proud.
Master seemed to think so~
How ’bout you?
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
Just incase you were curious….what dievca plans to wear for dinner tonight.
