First Gala of the Season 2018

Dries van Noten Ribbon Fringe Dress SS 2015

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:

Dries van Noten Runway SS 2015

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:

Catherine Deneuve, Paris Match 1997, Photo: Ellen von Unwerth

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!

Voila!

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! 😉


A Gala Tap Dance – 2017

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:

Wrinkles from me taking a photo the next day after wearing it.

Split bell sleeves

  • 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.

Add:

  • Maison Martin Margiela Gold Metal Belt, made of brass
  • John Galliano Navy/Green/Gold platform heels
  • Gold Box Clutch
  • Green/Blue Drop Earrings

voilà!

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~)


Leaving a Footprint

A gift for the Sir or Madame who appreciates fashion.
dievca picked this up at the Met for her Master.
A small touch of Fashion insider knowledge –what is it?

A quirky leather bookmark inspired by Japanese footwear. Celebrating The Costume Institute exhibition Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology at The Met, in which inventive creations by Maison Margiela were on view.

 

The cult fashion label expresses its creativity by recycling, transforming, and reinterpreting the quotidian in unexpected ways. The Tabi bookmark displays Maison Martin Margiela’s signature avant-garde sensibility. Handmade in France with the logo stamped in gold.

EDIT FROM OLIVIA KIM: “Always provocative and witty, Maison Martin Margiela accessories are fun and collectible. I love the Tabi bookmark, based on the insole from his iconic split-toe shoes. This is a perfect companion with the Manus x Machina exhibition catalog.”

And where does it come from?

A staple for Maison Margiela since A/W 1995-1996

dievca’s gift to Master for His last birthday.  He reads, a lot.

Circles commonly represent unity, wholeness, and infinity. Without beginning or end, without sides or corners, the circle is also associated with the number one.

In some cases, there is a distinction between that which is contained within the circle and that which lies without.

Protection
Circles are often seen as protective symbols. Standing within a circle shields a person from supernatural dangers or influences outside of the circle. Conversely, a circle can also be containing, keeping that which is inside from been released.

The perfect symbols for D/s
Your Sir/Madame will protect you within Their Circles of Collar, Cuff and Band. The Symbolism of being owned and kept inside the circles for your Sir/Madame’s needs, pleasures and your safety.

“I give you my protection and care for your submission and service.”
