What is a Chemise?

dievca couldn’t remember the name of a certain piece of lingerie she wore for Master. she went searching for a photo and found that it was a chemise with garters by Blush Lingerie in Hot Pink.  Worn with nude lace top stockings and Gucci Beaded ankle-strap heels.

As she was looking for the item, dievca realized that other people might need to know the definitions of various lingerie pieces, too!

What is the definition of a Chemise?
A modern Chemise is a one-piece undergarment which slips over the head and is the same shape as a straight-hanging sleeveless dress. It is similar to the babydoll, but it is fitted more closely around the hips. Historically, a chemise was a simple garment worn next to the skin to protect clothing from sweat and body oils.

Now you ask what a Babydoll is….well, dievca will be telling you about some other lingerie pieces weekly, with photos. The Chemise was just the start — any suggestions or offerings, let dievca know. she has 45 pieces to share and discuss, so far. Tune in on Thursdays….

Exuberance at the Beach!

Channeling Marilyn’s Joy this weekend!


NYC traffic isn’t only on the streets….

On one of those gorgeous Summer Days in the City with the temperature around 80F (27C) and low humidity. (Why dievca lives in NYC)

dievca took a break to watch the World roll by on the Hudson River.

It was beautiful, but what really made her smile was that the River has traffic, too. Can’t get away from it. In a 10 minute period, dievca got 4 helicopters, 3+ ferries, a cruise ship, a tug, some pleasure boats, 5 sailboats (in a row – sailing school?), a barge, etc. she decided to take pictures after 5 minutes in and here’s what she got~ Enjoy!

PS. she didn’t realize that Master owned a tugboat – until she saw His mark.

GOOD MORNING!


An old desperation…solved for $21.92

Everyone had a pair.
Except dievca.

Her thighs didn’t fit and if they did the waist was huge.
Serious quad muscles.
Funny because everyone else had trouble with the waist.

We are talking 4th grade…and beyond.

dievca has never owned a pair of Levis Jeans.

Until this weekend.

Let dievca explain.
As an athlete growing up in the 1970’s/1980’s, Levis Jeans weren’t cut for larger thighs. No stretch and too large of waists. So, dievca never really looked at the options that flowed in during the later years. Look, she barely could wear the 1980’s/1990’s Guess Jeans and they weren’t comfortable, especially when you had to zip them at the ankles to get them over your feet.

 

Back to Levis Jeans…

dievca never tried on the “curvy” ones, nor any iteration of the 501 blues. she avoided Levis and found friendliness of fit with J Brand, Current/Elliott and Rag & Bone.
Until she was shopping in a Wal-Mart store~

Background:

There aren’t any Wal-Marts in Manhattan.

Renting a car to get to a funeral provides an opportunity to bulk shop. Especially for those items that are heavy: Laundry Detergent, Oxyclean, canned good, bottled juices, etc. As dievca traversed the store she passed the Men’s clothing section. There, looking her straight in the eye, were stands of Levis Signature FLEX straight slim leg Men’s jeans. They looked like they would fit. They had 1% elastane. They were $21.95.

dievca had a dress on from the Funeral, she put the jeans on underneath the dress and then searched the store to find a mirror. Bingo! – there was one in the home goods section.
Voilà!
They fit!
They fit well!
At $21.95, if dievca decides she doesn’t like them – it won’t break the bank.

So, after 30+ years – dievca now owns a pair of Levis Jeans…and her thighs fit.

Will wonders will never Cease!

So….what’s your story with Blue Jeans? XO


Shakespeare’s Summer: Master, shall We?

SONNET 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course, untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st;
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

 

Shakespeare gardens, created out of reverence for the bard, can be found throughout many locations in both the US and Britain. Of these gardens, one of the most famous is that found in Central Park, where it is located on the West Side of the park and 79th street.
What had formerly been known as the Garden of the Heart was, in 1916, renamed the Shakespeare Garden to mark the 300th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. Following in the tradition of already established Shakespeare Gardens, the Garden was filled with the beautiful plants and flowers mentioned in the works of the playwright, as well as those featured in his own private garden in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The Garden covers four acres of plants that change according to season. Included among these are plants such as rosemary and pansies, alluded to by Ophelia in Hamlet, thistle, mentioned in the play Much Ado About Nothing, and even a white mulberry tree that is said to have grown from a graft of a tree planted by Shakespeare himself in 1602. To aid you in your quest to identify the various species of plant life located within the space, bronze plaques with corresponding quotations from Shakespeare’s plays have been placed sporadically along the path.

Photos from around the web, dievca would like the chance to take her own.
