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?
Maison Martin Margiela Replica 1970’s Tango shoes Argentina in blue patent leather
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

A lovely gift to bring someone. Male or Female. A very Dutch gift.
Do you bring flowers that you love? Especially if you don’t know what flowers the giftee loves?
Do you try to guess what they might like?
Or would you think about the flower’s meanings? Send a message?
In dievca’s High School, clubs would sell Carnations on Valentine’s Day to raise money for their activities:
A White Carnation meant “Friends”
Red meant “Lovers”
Pink meant “Secret Admirer”
For 50 cents, you would pre-order and send the flowers with a message to the classroom where you knew your “target” was sitting. The pink carnations were quite desirable.
Hmm, fun to remember that~wonder if they still do it.
dievca received three sets of flowers for her Birthday.
Which bouquet of flowers do you think is her?
White rose: purity, innocence, reverence, a new beginning, a fresh start.
Red rose: love, I love you
Deep, dark crimson rose: mourning
Pink roses: grace, happiness, gentleness
Yellow rose: joy, friendship, the promise of a new beginning
Orange rose: desire and enthusiasm
Lavender rose: love at first sight
Coral rose: friendship, modesty, sympathy
Celosia (Cockscomb) – Boldness/Courage or Affection, Singularity, Silliness.
Gerber Daisy (Gerbera): Innocence, Purity
Carnation (red): Love, Admiration, Friendship, Pride, Passion
Carnation (yellow): Disappointment, Rejection, Disdain
Hydrangea (foliage and flowers): Thank You for Understanding, sometimes Heartlessness
Rose (red): love, I love you
Mums (yellow): Happiness, also Slighted Love, Dejection
Mums (white): Truth, Hope, Loyal Love, Pure & True Affections

For 5 years (WordPress Anniversary – Thank You) and I have gotten a year older.
I was trying to think what piece of lingerie do I own that makes me feel absolutely fabulous on the lingerie Thursday~ and what I would wear for you, if we were celebrating together.
I came up with the orange Wolford dress and the navy Agent Provocateur silk slip:
Mind you, I do enjoy corsets and latex, but if I am choosing for me and not Master – I go flowy or stretchy, curve-friendly, comfortable, quirky and easy.
What is your “go to” lingerie if its your choice, not your Sir or Madame?
And the lovely item that Master bought for my additional year of Life:
