The dress – Dries von Noten SS 2015, soooo dievca might look a little bit muppet-ish, the swish is too fun to miss out on….
Here’s how Dries styled it:
OK, no patterned cardigan available in dievca’s closet, but a Club Monaco Soft Trench might do the trick:
And it works!
Shoes? Initially, dievca was thinking boots. Tall, black patent leather boots, but Dries styled it with an ankle strap sandal for Spring/Summer. What else does dievca have?
dievca is going to keep the jewelry simple because the dress has so much going on:
Hair and make-up? Well, dievca’s hair grew out and had gotten long and shaggy as thin hair is wont to do~ Listening to her Master, she kept it long and got a “Lob” (long bob) with the idea that with her hair blown out she would have similar hair to:
It worked. The color isn’t the same, dievca has red, gold and grey highlights from the Summer (random grey as she cannot decided whether to color her hair or not…Master has no opinion on it.) But, the body and the sweep occurs when dievca straightens her curls. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain….
Smoky eyes, red lips, facial contouring which dievca learned this summer from the photo-shoot!
If you cannot be traditionally beautiful, you might as well have fun with Fashion!
and dievca suspects that Master will have fun tossing up her skirt! 😉

Peng. New Word Suggestion. Used to describe anything of exceptional quality, including people. Means ‘fit’ or ‘hot’ or ‘good-looking’
Peng was used to describe high quality weed. It then became to mean someone who is really good-looking. A lot of the London slang words are Jamaican in origin. They become popular through music and black Londoners links with the Caribbean.
Where it appeared for dievca:
How would you sum up the collection?
dievca had to look up the word ‘peng’ when she saw it describing a new collection offered by ASOS, developed by Generation Z humans for themselves with creativity and equality (race, gender, body image, sexuality, disabilities) in mind via the ‘revolving’ team (a new group of 6 people driving each collection) . Whew! Can you keep up?
Taking into consideration the results of extensive research into the non-negotiable values of Gen Z, the brand’s price point starts at £5, the pieces are intended for all genders, sizes are available up to a 6XL, and the collection is animal-free. Each season, a new lineup of diverse creatives will collaborate to create a collection that not only speaks to, but is for, everyone.
Here’s Generation Z (mid 1990’s to mid 2000’s birth years):
What is the brand called? COLLUSION….which is an interesting word choice in of itself:
secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others
Hmmmm, not so altruistic….
showing a disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others; unselfish
OK, too many new words and the brand didn’t do its due diligence – let’s move on. dievca normally runs into Forever 21 or H&M for an update on what the kids are into clothing-wise. she understands that it is fast fashion and cheap, but it does take the pulse of the younger generations.
Brandy Melville was her latest go in the Summer — she laughed to find out that many 12 years olds have the same Jessica sweater as her.
The old girl is HIP!
(Do kids even know what ‘hip’ means anymore?)
Anyways, after sending a huge suitcase of clothes to Europe with her friend (for 4 people) and selling 5 items on eBay for $1000, plus having more things to list and 6 bags going to resale next week…whew…dievca decided to treat herself and splurge $158.00 on a few Collusion items. They may look like absolute crap when she gets them, but it made her feel young and peng for a moment:
Somehow she doesn’t think Master is going to go for any of it as Presentation Outfits, but it might make Him chuckle. XO
…but something fine comes along. It’s different, however, it’s still fabulous.
Mind you, dievca’s favorite Nirvana band member is Dave Grohl.
She ran into this interview after watching the previous video: Dave Grohl’s Mom, Virginia, Talks About Raising A Rockstar Child. As a former educator and believer in different forms and paths for learning – dievca appreciates her take on raising her son effectively to be a musician.
The Seven Learning Styles
Visual (spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch.
Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.
Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.
dievca tends to run verbal and logical — as she mutters to herself and create lists and structures of knowledge (ask Master).
How do you learn effectively?
Your learning styles have more influence than you may realize. Your preferred styles guide the way you learn. They also change the way you internally represent experiences, the way you recall information, and even the words you choose.
Research shows us that each learning style uses different parts of the brain. By involving more of the brain during learning, we remember more of what we learn. Researchers using brain-imaging technologies have been able to find out the key areas of the brain responsible for each learning style.
- Visual: The occipital lobes at the back of the brain manage the visual sense. Both the occipital and parietal lobes manage spatial orientation.
- Aural: The temporal lobes handle aural content. The right temporal lobe is especially important for music.
- Verbal: The temporal and frontal lobes, especially two specialized areas called Broca’s and Wernicke’s areas (in the left hemisphere of these two lobes).
- Physical: The cerebellum and the motor cortex (at the back of the frontal lobe) handle much of our physical movement.
- Logical: The parietal lobes, especially the left side, drive our logical thinking.
- Social: The frontal and temporal lobes handle much of our social activities. The limbic system (not shown apart from the hippocampus) also influences both the social and solitary styles. The limbic system has a lot to do with emotions, moods and aggression.
- Solitary: The frontal and parietal lobes, and the limbic system, are also active with this style.
With that information cooking in your brain, let dievca leave you with her favorite version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Auditory only…XO

“las personas que amas se vuelven fantasmas dentro de ti y así los mantienes en vida”
I think of all the people I have touched and those who have touched me. Their memories swirl in my brain, clear or distorted, but they are there. Especially, those I have loved-whom I still love because they shared something special with me. The beauty doesn’t go away. Ghosts.
Yet, I am always surprised when someone keeps the ghost of me in them and the call from the blue confirms their memories. It never fails to amaze and make me smile. You never know how you will touch someone.
