Trainers, Trousers and a Slouchy Sweater

A pair of new KICKS set off an outfit for dievca. The outfit channels her downtown chic – look.  she knows her Master checks in with the blog and likes her other “looks” “Diversity, dievca, Diversity”, but….
Master prefers Ladylike when His dievca is presenting for Him.

Sneakers are not Ladylike~

Presenting the KICKS (Strenesse bought at a sample sale):

Here’s the rest of the outfit:

Strenesse Trousers Navy striped (bought at the same sample Sale)

Gucci Floral Semi-sheer Tee

Nili Lotan Cashmere Chunky Sweater

Navy Fox Socks

Strenesse Sneakers

Barneys Suede Camera Crossbody

Tom Ford Sunglasses

dievca must have been inspired by NYC “Street Style” or something because she ran into other people with the same idea. But she didn’t see her dark Monochromatic Look, so hopefully it will be different “chic”, not different “boring”.


Drop ‘yer Drawers (lingerie)

A drawing of cancan dancers among the crowd at the MOULIN ROUGE music-hall in Paris in the late XIXth century. Was the Gentleman peering through an opening in the drawers?

Drawers, or Pantalettes,  are a pant-like garment worn during the 19th century for modesty and warmth. They could be one-piece or two separate garments, one for each leg, attached at the waist with buttons or laces. The crotch was left open for hygiene reasons. They were most often of white linen fabric and could be decorated with tucks, lace, cutwork or broderie anglaise.


The split in the crotch of the drawers is convenient for going to the bathroom when you cannot take the drawers down under the heavy layers of skirt or a hoop. But like wearing Spanx tights or shapers — using the opening….it seems…messy.

Did the split in drawers make the Moulin Rouge shows more risqué than dievca ever knew? That high kick could be unintentionally revealing.

BTW – Spanx makes a modern version of drawers:

And, again, dievca has always wondered how you go to the bathroom without soaking the Spanx. In asking the question, she ran into a solution offered by the DailyMail.

Yes, for those of you who are very precise – there is a second definition of “Drawers” as in the furniture sense, Lingerie Drawers:

A semainier is a chest of drawers, usually tall and thin, intended for storing linen and lingerie. … Originating in 18th-century France, semainier has come to mean any seven-drawer chest these days but the term is sometimes erroneously applied to tall thin lingerie chests with only six drawers.


A disaster or a treat?


dievca raced out of work early to get to the Ballet.
Grabbing her ticket at “Will Call”, she had enough time to get a glass of Champagne and a ChocoLove Raspberry/Dark Chocolate bar.

As she sat in the lobby for a 5 minute gulp, she looked around at the people who were dressed up for the ballet.

Beautiful.

But not dievca.
she barely made it from a bike ride and the subway.

Her plumage was practical:

 

It was ok, she was hidden on the side of the 4th floor peanut gallery.

The 5:00 am work start that morning had dievca nodding off during the first two pieces. she wondered how she would make it through to the final piece she wanted to see.

After intermission, falling asleep wasn’t problem. The brutal ballet “Odessa” about Jewish Organized Crime after the Russian Revolution kept her awake. Set to the fabulous music from a Russian movie, “Sunset”, the choreography was intense and amazing. Some of the critiques called out the “gang rape scene” (NYT’s Article) But, history isn’t always pretty. It was the telling of a story.

The last piece was what dievca went to see, “The Times Are Racing” , and she enjoyed that the couples pairings changed for the final performance. Boy-to-Boy instead of Girl-to-Boy (the Girl did a kick-A** job in the tap dance piece). But, she was still stuck on the stunning one-two punch of Odessa and that remains the surprise winner in her mind.

Although dievca loves to dress up, sliding out into the night with her hiking boots wasn’t a disaster. dievca decided that champagne, chocolate, ballet and being comfortable make for an excellent evening by herself.

Celebrated since 1976, according to Sesame Street Magazine, October 15th is National Grouch Day — a day for all Grouches to celebrate their way of life.

dievca was looking for a little Grouch Couture for inspiration and came up with these photos:

But then realized that if she was really going to be true to her Mentor, Moschino was the way to go!
