Fashion in the submissive’s favor – Spring Summer 2021 Louis Vuitton is offering elegant collars with padlocks and chunky chains:
#1 – The polished LV Edge necklace Cadenas presents an iconic Louis Vuitton signature while embracing a contemporary feel. This piece features a large padlock pendant meticulously engraved with the LV Initials, suspended from a thick link chain. The pendant is opened and closed by pushing the lock.
#2 – With slightly smaller chain links than its sister pieces in the line, this LV Edge necklace MM makes a subtler, though no less striking impression. On this scale, the meticulousness of the Monogram engravings in rows along the links is truly exceptional. An LV Initials-engraved lobster clasp makes a secure and elegant closure.
A bold statement of showing your BDSM leanings in public without anyone the wiser.

Its always a challenge to carry a watermelon home from the Grocery Store – especially when you are walking.
Japanese designer, Tsuchiya Kaban, leather bag provides an elegant, luxury vessel tote around your fruit. Holding one round watermelon, the carrier was crafted by Yusuke Kadoi as part of a project titled “The Fun of Carrying”, which encouraged designers to create playful, inventive items as side projects.
The bag is just a concept – if it was put into production, there may be an audience for it!

Lucie Ann lingerie was founded in 1947 by Lucie Ann Onderwyzer (1913-1988). She became renowned for her extensive use of nylon tricot peignoirs trimmed with marabou. Based in Beverly Hills, California, her lingerie found favor with the stars, and was featured in the TV series Green Acres, being worn by star Eva Gabor. After Onderwyzer’s death, the business was sold, and the label changed to Lucie Ann II. This line is still in production.
Taking a tub was a delight this weekend. The Roosevelt Island Graduate Hotel offered a Kohler Soaking Tub ($4250). It was the perfect size. Too bad that dievca got water in her ear and is battling an ear infection. But, now she knows what type of tub to buy for the future. XO (click photo below for a link)
The best part of being a backend is there is no backend at the back end of the backend. ~ Anup
In the computer world, the “backend” refers to any part of a website or software program that users do not see. It contrasts with the frontend, which refers to a program’s or website’s user interface. In programming terminology, the backend is the “data access layer,” while the frontend is the “presentation layer.”
When you are “Old School”, wireless headphones are beyond your ken. The white skinny things dangling from one’s ears or the black squat plugs – both not visually appealing.
dievca has been sticking with her Frends Layla Headphones in Oil Slick and she still gets compliments – even with the old school wires.
Then she dreamed of the seashore – desperate for a Holiday on the beach. Dreaming that she was picking up sea shells:

Something fun for Presenting in Spring!
Is that an oxymoron?
Where can dievca find shapewear this elegant in fun colors?
The Quest has begun!
Is anyone else seeking elegance?
The year plus of sweatsuits has taken a toll for dievca, it took her awhile to gather an outfit for that event.
she used to be able to grab something and get ready in 30+ minutes. Maybe this McQueen dress could inspire a ‘quick change’? Too bad there isn’t anywhere to wear it at this point. Day dresses, maybe – formal dresses, not yet.
It is still a beautiful dress.
Could Chuck Taylors and a jeans jacket dress it down?
(Click photo to purchase)
Might be something for a Presentation Out in the future.
dievca didn’t look pregnant and received multiple compliments on the dress. Note – its been long enough since Melania Trump wore the Big Pink Dress (2017) and its still in style. Plus, it was the perfect choice for an outdoor event.
Wipe the sweat off that brow – whew!
Sing a song of May-time.
Sing a song of Spring.
Flowers are in their beauty.
Birds are on the wing.
May time, play time.
God has given us May time.
Thank Him for His gifts of love.
Sing a song of Spring.
Photo: Paul Nadar 1874-1939
Rue d’Anjou, Paris, France
The son of the Famous French photographer Felix Tournachon (Nadar). Paul began working at his father’s studio in 1874. He investigated the many possibilities of photography such as capturing views from hot air balloons. In 1890 he made a trip to Central Asia using George Eastman’s new flexible bromide film. The collaboration worked so well that Nadar became the representative for Kodak products in France. Both Paul and his father photographed many famous people of their time but Paul’s emphasis on those at the cutting edge of society strained their relationship. Paul not only produced portraits of celebrities of the stage, he hosted the first exhibition of Impressionist painters.
In the 1920’s a good number of real photo postcards were produced under the Nadar name, most of them of full nudes with some of them having hand coloring. But there is serious doubt to whether the cards of nudes were actually made from Nadar’s photographs. Another unknown publisher may have borrowed Nadar’s logo to enhance the prestige of these cards and make them more sellable.

Definition of cincher
: a tight woman’s undergarment that is worn to shape and compress the waist // a waist cincher
The hand-span waists so beloved by Dior were achieved by foundation garments, of which the most popular was the waist cincher. Called the “waspie” or “guepiere”, it became the quintessential undergarment of the “New Look”. Boned and back-laced, it differed from the Victorian corset of decades past primarily in its length, usually only 6 to 7 inches. Fashion magazines of the time stressed that it was “super-light weight” and contained “feather boning”. Such garments were worn tightly cinched at the waist, usually over a girdle. The combination was described by Anne Fogarty, an American dress designer who popularized the “New Look” in the US: “To maintain your figure at its flattering best, depend on foundation garments to control and distribute; a cinch or tight belt to restrain.”
