Well, that was a bust – Holiday Gala canceled

As Omicron moves into NYC – venues and events are being closed/canceled. dievca’s Holiday Gala was an early casualty.¬† Too bad it was canceled after she had bought the dress…

Here was the plan:

OK, Plan B – wear the dress to Master’s and have a smaller personal Gala!

First Gala of the Season 2018

Dries van Noten Ribbon Fringe Dress SS 2015

The dress – Dries von Noten SS 2015, soooo dievca might look a little bit muppet-ish, the swish is too fun to miss out on….

Here’s how Dries styled it:

Dries van Noten Runway SS 2015

OK, no patterned cardigan available in dievca’s closet, but a Club Monaco Soft Trench might do the trick:

And it works!

Shoes? Initially, dievca was thinking boots. Tall, black patent leather boots, but Dries styled it with an ankle strap sandal for Spring/Summer. What else does dievca have?

dievca is going to keep the jewelry simple because the dress has so much going on:

Hair and make-up? Well, dievca’s hair grew out and had gotten long and shaggy as thin hair is wont to do~ Listening to her Master, she kept it long and got a “Lob” (long bob) with the idea that with her hair blown out she would have similar hair to:

It worked. The color isn’t the same, dievca has red, gold and grey highlights from the Summer (random grey as she cannot decided whether to color her hair or not…Master has no opinion on it.) But, the body and the sweep occurs when dievca straightens her curls. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain….

Smoky eyes, red lips, facial contouring which dievca learned this summer from the photo-shoot!


If you cannot be traditionally beautiful, you might as well have fun with Fashion!
and dievca suspects that Master will have fun tossing up her skirt! ūüėČ

Delicate Beauty

Delicate Beauty

Sometimes dievca would like to be petite, light and delicate.  Fine, exquisite, dainty. dievca is capable of standing tall, walking lightly and moving gracefully. Perhaps, just perhaps, if dievca carries this bag and wears the boots, she can fool people into believing that she is a Delicate Beauty.  One can dream, right?
