I couldn’t find the dress…literally…not-in-my-closet.
Shit. (F*ck me)
I know, I know – everyone is running around hectic for the season.
I just hate when I have a game plan in mind and things go South.
Especially when the timeline is tight.
It was 5:15 am, I was going to have a hell of a day~I didn’t need this.
I should have gathered everything the night before…
And then something brilliant happened.
I ran into a dress I bought 12 years ago in Columbus Circle:
- Blair Delmonico (stored closed, but the brand still makes jewelry)
- Steel Blue/Green Silk Satin
- Drawstring collar
- Very Large Bell-Sleeves with wrist to shoulder slits
- Elastic waist.
- I didn’t use the grey sash.
Nice – the cut is totally in and it’s not black. Easy to wear – bonus.
- Maison Martin Margiela Gold Metal Belt, made of brass
- John Galliano Navy/Green/Gold platform heels
- Gold Box Clutch
- Green/Blue Drop Earrings
We have a last-minute outfit! And something different from the rest of the crowd.
I felt Great!
Thank goodness that people didn’t notice I had 3rd day straightened hair, make-up put on over the full day’s make-up, no shower after a workout, all because I managed to lose my phone and had to spend the time I would have used to get ready, to find-the-damn-phone.
Doesn’t matter…the event? I slayed it!
All with a little tap dancing at 5 am that morning.
Master was impressed.
BTW, I found the phone.
(And, yes, I will keep the dress for another 12 years re-appearance~)
What a dievca might wish for…
if you have a bit of extra pocket change!
Searching Gifts for the Men in your Life can be challenging. Here’s some options dievca ran across along the way. Ranging from $4 to $2750 — you might find something:
Remember Bass Weejun Penny Loafers? dievca found that the G.H. Bass website seemed to have the best options for small odds and ends. (click here for the G.H. Bass website)
The site is running a 20% off deal.
Eddie Bauer used to have some cool and useful gifts. Not as many, but a few inexpensive pieces and if you need some fleece/outerwear, they are a good source. (click here for the Eddie Bauer website)
The site is running 50% off everything.
dievca bought the Pistachio Pedestal for her brother who loves pistachio nuts. Uncommon Goods has some other nice options for gifts. (click her for the Uncommon Goods website)
The most expensive item on the list is from Bottega Veneta — a designer known for woven leather goods. This backpack comes in amazing colors and will cost you… (click here for the Bottega Veneta website)
