Gay Pride with Rocket Dog

The Gay Pride Parade for NYC kicks off at 12:00 Noon.
Begins at 36th and 5th and ends at Christopher and Greenwich Streets.

The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.

dievca isn’t planning to join the Parade, but she will be wearing something “Rainbow” in support:


Balenciaga: At Knife Point

(click photo to purchase)

Master and dievca are not into “Knife Play” — but dievca could see herself presenting in these “knives”. Something “sharp” for Master. XO

New for Pre-AW17, these sharply pointed Knife boots are a riff on the fetishistic styles that dominated Balenciaga’s SS17 runway. They’re veiled in cobalt-blue lace and shaped to fit like a second skin, ending high on the thigh. Let the pin-thin stiletto heel lift a neatly belted trench coat to seductive new heights.

It seems like the SS17 pink version is “sold out” on net-a-porter…. so move fast!

“Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit.”

― Virgil, Eclogues. Georgics. Aeneid: Books 1-6

This encouragement was written on a wall, where I hope it remains today. The sense of the phrase is: Someday, we’ll look back on even this and smile.

An 80’s Girl…

This bag makes dievca so happy…
Like…Oh, my God!

Sarah’s Bag is renowned for its eclectic designs, and this retro-inspired Walkman box clutch is a fine example of the covetable aesthetic. It’s crafted from postbox-red wood with a painted brass handle and leather lining, and printed with a cassette player design depicted in primary hues – note the nostalgic ‘mix tape’ lettering scrawled across it. Use it to bring a touch of fun to sleek separates.
