A denim dress never goes out of style. Why? Denim by itself is considered to be a timeless fabric that works for different weather conditions and occasions. There are classic denim dresses, as well as modern styles with sexy cuts and mini lengths. A denim dress can be styled with all kinds of shoes, starting from sneakers, flats and wedge sandals to sexy stilettos and classy pumps.
Denim is a sturdy cotton warp-faced textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces a diagonal ribbing that distinguishes it from cotton duck. While a denim predecessor known as dungaree has been produced in India for hundreds of years, denim itself was first produced in the French city of Nîmes under the name “serge de Nîmes”.
The most common denim is indigo denim, in which the warp thread is dyed, while the weft thread is left white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the textile is dominated by the blue warp threads and the other side is dominated by the white weft threads. This causes blue jeans to be white on the inside. The indigo dyeing process, in which the core of the warp threads remains white, creates denim’s signature fading characteristics. ~Wikipedia
The Trucker style of denim dress takes its cue from the Levi’s Type III jacket with some distinctive features to look for:
- Cropped cut that ends at the waist
- Slim, tailored cut
- Buttons at sleeve, pocket, and front
- Chest pockets with pointed flaps
- Generally, two slanted (or “V-shaped”) seams that run from chest pocket to waist
- A point collar
Add some length and you’ve got a Denim Trucker Dress:
Though dievca loves the look of the Cotton Citizen Caballo Dress (photo – top of post), she is rocking the less expensive Lucky Brand Trucker Dress.
Why? 100% cotton vs. some lycra.
dievca always goes with the stretch! she’s planning on snakeskin boots with the dress or maybe tights and OTK boots for winter. Hmmm, a casual presentation for Master…time to think on it.

It’s not just about the classic bomber anymore. Leather in all shapes and forms is making its way to Street Style snaps around the World. Take a look in your closet and see if there is leather lurking in the back corner. Air it out, condition it and if it’s got an 80’s vibe – rock it.
If there isn’t a leather piece to be had — take a look at the following for inspiration:

but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

What it means:
A lewk is a curated outfit, following a theme, your mood or the occasion.
To use the term of art, a lewk is a personal style signature so individual it’s almost indivisible from you. It connotes something noticeable: wearing jeans every day isn’t a lewk, but wearing a Schiaparelli lobster hat might be. It might be something you wear every day, but is not the same thing as a uniform. It’s not about saving time and brainpower by cutting out frivolity; it’s about embracing a particular brand of it, one that is yours alone. – Veronique Hyland, The Cut
dievca missed it on her ‘sweaters as lingerie‘ post. Katie Holmes’ lewk. Katie’s trying to step it up and be sexier, more mature – not the cute kid next door. She’s using the brand, Khaite to do it. The cashmere lingerie and sweaters are what dievca would truely consider ‘sweater lingerie’.
dievca loves cashmere, but this is an expensive ‘lewk’=
Way out of dievca’s range – but Katie rocks it well.

What does a submissive wear?
What will Master’s dievca wear?
she cannot think…
she’s out of practice…
she just cleared out her closet…
Not to panic, there has to be something in there:
Thanks for helping dievca think it through.
And Master just reminded dievca – no toys in the bag. Bag check. XO
