1930's Elegant Nightgown Pattern

since dievca has worn a sweeping Nightgown for her Master. This 1930’s Elegant Nightgown Vintage Pattern would be lovely to recreate.  Too bad dievca doesn’t have a sewing machine. She’ll just have to wear something vintge-like from her lingerie closet (Mary Green Silk Nightgown in Red):

Opting for Elegant with La Perla

Master has been interested in opening Presents this Season –
La Perla may be able to help.

Santa Lingerie – a discussion

Santa lingerie has permeated our culture.  You can probably picture the garments in question: cherry-red babydoll nightie with white fur trim lining the hem, paired with matching thong, or maybe a red satin and white fur teddy.

miss-santa-dress-string

How did lingerie evoking Santa, a wholesome and kindly childhood figure whose presence signals a religious virgin birth, get so popular?

Undergarments for women have long been costume-like, and were often meant to dramatically alter female silhouettes. (Whalebone corsets, giant hoops worn under crinoline skirts, a bustle.) Bloomers and petticoats might look dowdy and utilitarian, but eroticizing lingerie isn’t a new trend. Lingerie really started becoming more decorative and luxurious in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In1898, after noting a “mania” for colourful, decorative and seductive lingerie throughout Europe, the French journalist Octave Uzanne wrote, “the last remains of feminine modesty sunk out of sight.”

But underwear as a costume is a newer phenomenon. It might be linked with the provocative “underwear as outerwear” period of the 1980s and 90s. At the end of the 20th century, seeing visible underwear became more shocking than the nude body. An example is Madonna’s “Blonde Ambition” cone bra.

That’s the culture that led up to the “fast fashion” lingerie that was so popular in the early 2000s. And the inexpensive “Halloween Slutty” and “Santa Baby” costumes multiplied.

Santa may be a wholesome concept, but he is asking people to sit on his lap, he’s keeping a naughty and nice list, there are songs about Santa kissing women when he comes to visit, people are getting cozy with fur and sitting by a fire, and let’s not forget the unknown quantity of Ms. Santa Claus.   Perhaps people who buy Santa lingerie are buying into the commercialized, sexualized lens of those forces~

Finally something good – or so she thought

Agent Provocateur Peachy

dievca spotted this lovely photo from an Agent Provocateur email. she was excited to see an edge and presetntation that has been missing from the company’s recent offerings. she misses the quirk, sassiness and humor they used to offer.

Then she clicked through to see the item…

What dievca thought was a body suit or soft corset turn out to be a dress with mini ruffles and lace.  At $1545 only the back is of interest. Yawn~

What she wore ~

The day of the La Pavillon dinner was cooler, so the floral dress option was off the table. Something a bit warmer would be necessary for comfort:

  • Autumn Cashmere Green Ribbed Knit Dress ($52 on sale OutNet)

  • Khaite Patent Leather Thigh-Hi Sedona Boots ($550 on sale SSENSE)

  • Vintage Missoni Textured Tan Knit Trench ($120 eBay)

  • Lily and Lionel Paisley Cashmere Scarf ($150 on sale Neiman Marcus)

  • Reed Krakoff Snakeskin Ayers Clutch ($75 RealReal)

Its been a long time since dievca has truly put on make-up, so that was a bit of a trick…

La Pavillon NYC:  The FOOD was amazing!  Everything was well-done and 3/4 of it was unique and spectacular.  The cost was about $200 per person, but dievca feels that the food and the atmosphere were worth it. Note: the menu evolves with food availbility, so sharing her dinner choices won’t help another diner in the future.


Halloween Lingerie Suggestions

It may be a bit late to consider some of these pieces, but others you may be able to modify a piece or make on your own:


A "Thank You" to Anna from the UK who had a blog from 2013-2016 called "Bras and Body Image"


Sometimes its works – tanga panties

Backside and cuffs
Master appreciates corsets and stockings, but once in awhile things need to be changed up. Using the Tanga Panties above as inspiration – dievca pulled out her Simone Pérèle lingerie which works well with her curves. Her offering just happened to be orange in honor of Halloween! No stockings, as it was too warm – but it made a lovely offering of her a**.


Going Bananas 🍌 It started with Josephine

Josephine Baker Glamour

Fleur du Mal may have us Going Bananas with their Limited Edition lingerie, but it may have started with the lovely and talented Josephine Baker.

On June 3, 1906, Josephine Baker was born Freda Josephine McDonald in the slums of St. Louis. Growing up, she cleaned houses and babysat for the wealthy. At the age of 15, Baker was recruited for the St. Louis Chorus vaudeville show; from there, she went to Harlem where she performed in musicals. Eventually, she landed a gig in France as part of an all-black revue, at a salary of $1,000 a month; she emigrated in 1925.

It was the summer of 1926 at the Folies Bergère in Paris. Hordes of white Parisians flocked to the famed theater to see La Revue Nègre, a musical show that emerged from France due to the country’s fascination with jazz culture. And there, wearing little more than strings of pearls, wrist cuffs, and a skirt made of 16 rubber bananas, Josephine Baker descended from a palm tree onstage, and began to dance. This dance—the danse sauvage—is what established her as the biggest black female star in the world.

During World War II, Baker aided the French Resistance by smuggling secret messages in invisible ink on her musical sheets. She hid Jewish refugees and weapons in her château that Bakerskin (her line of skin darkening and hair slicking products) had helped pay for. In 1963, she was, notably, the only official female speaker to give an address at the March on Washington. She received the Croix de Guerre, the Médaille de la Résistance, and Légion d’Honneur. After she died on April 12, 1975, more than 20,000 people crowded the streets of Paris to watch the funeral procession on its way to L’Église de la Madeleine. The French government honored her with a 21-gun salute, making Josephine Baker the first American woman buried in France with full military honors.

In August 2021, it was announced that Josephine Baker is set to become the first Black woman to have her remains reburied in the Panthéon monument in Paris — one of the highest honors in France. French president Emmanuel Macron made the announcement writing that Baker “held high the motto of the French Republic.”

“World-renowned music hall artist, committed to the Resistance, tireless anti-racist activist, she was involved in all the fights that bring together citizens of good will, in France and around the world,” the palace wrote.
She will be honored at the monument on November 30.

Fashion-wise – offstage, Josephine’s style was developed by Paul Poiret and Madeleine Vionnet, two of the leading couturiers in the ’20s. Her alluring choices have been seen more recent when Beyoncé paid homage to Baker by wearing a banana skirt in her 2006 Fashion Rocks performance. Miley Cyrus following in 2014.

Banana SkirtAt the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards, when Rihanna wore a sheer Baker-inspired dress. The Spring 2011 Prada collection and the 2016 Marc Jacobs’s Fall runway notably referenced Baker’s signature gelled hair.

Or, perhaps, Charlotte Olympia’s Banana Pumps are enough quirk to honor Josephine!

Doing Lunch – a (small) dievca disaster

RAQU-WD227_V1

So, dievca met Master for lunch at a lovely rooftop restaurant. It was a gorgeous end-of-summer day in NYC and she was wearing a French Blue Raquel Allegra hammered satin Peasant Dress, nipped in with a Ralph Lauren Orange Cotton-toggle belt to match the ACNE Studios/Fallraven Backpack….with ACNE Studio sunglasses and Master’s Earrings.

The shoes were supposed to change from sneakers for walking through the city to heeled clogs, but when dievca went into her backpack to grab the clogs – only one was there….the other was found later at home, hidden.

Master just laughed at His dievca and handed her a lovely Birthday gift – which worked perfectly with the dress (Zimmermann Aloha 14K-plated Beaded Earrings) and reminded dievca of her College Days:

Dressing with Road Rash

After watching the chaos of two crashes on the first day of the Tour de France. dievca has complete empathy with anyone who has road rash.  Between the gauze dressings, ointments, sensitivity to the sun – its can be hard to dress with Road Rash.

In the heat of the NYC Summer, dievca normally wears dresses.  The loss of skin on her shin makes that an awkward dressing option.  she did find an elegant and comfortable option. Plus, it will work for today’s 2021 NYC PRIDE PARADE!

Based in Beverly Hills, California, her lingerie found favor with the stars, and was featured in the TV series Green Acres, being worn by star Eva Gabor. After Onderwyzer’s death, the business was sold, and the label changed to Lucie Ann II. This line is still in production.


Elegance with Alexander McQueen

Is anyone else seeking elegance?

The year plus of sweatsuits has taken a toll for dievca, it took her awhile to gather an outfit for that event.

she used to be able to grab something and get ready in 30+ minutes. Maybe this McQueen dress could inspire a ‘quick change’? Too bad there isn’t anywhere to wear it at this point. Day dresses, maybe – formal dresses, not yet.

It is still a beautiful dress.

Could Chuck Taylors and a jeans jacket dress it down?

(Click photo to purchase)


Shopping the closet worked…

dievca didn’t look pregnant and received multiple compliments on the dress. Note – its been long enough since Melania Trump wore the Big Pink Dress (2017) and its still in style. Plus, it was the perfect choice for an outdoor event.

Wipe the sweat off that brow – whew!


Don’t forget to wear Green!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

Presentation in Semi-sheer + a wild ride

Master told His dievca to wear stockings for Presentation.
The trick was to look alluring while feeling round in the middle – a corset was out~
Maison Close’s fitted skirt with suspenders and a slouchy see-thru sweater was in!

Wearing a hood with red lipstick would put the focus on Master’s Cock and the skirt with suspenders would shift that focus to dievca’s ass while bent over.

Master guided dievca’s head for Cock worship and when hard, He restrained her across the bed so she could be flipped belly down or up as needed. He added a penis gag and vibrating butt plug to fill all of  His dievca’s holes.


As Master’s Cock pounded into His dievca’s pussy, the button to modify the butt plug’s vibrational pattern would get pressed – it made for a wild ride, plus a bit of humor as dievca exploded everywhere.


Outfit for an Art Outing

As an Anniversary Celebration, Master took dievca to the Metropolitan Museum to see the Costume Institute’s About Time: Fashion and Duration.

Due to COVID, rain, and it being “Member Mondays” – the Museum was amazing in its emptiness. It was a rare pleasure to wander and absorb the Art in a very leisurely manner. Something dievca and Master may never experience, again.

Another post will be coming about the offerings from the Exhibition – this blog post is about what dievca wore:

Lucky Brand Sandwashed Modal Dress Navy

Spanx Black Tights

Ilse Jacobsen Rubber Boots

Nili Lotan Floral Silk Mask

Inspiration: (the evolution of a Presentation Outfit)

Click on the photo to watch the dance number “Big Spender” from Sweet Charity.

The minute you walked in the joint 
I could see you were a man of distinction 
A real big spender 
Good lookin’ so refined 
Say, wouldn’t you like to know what’s goin’ on in my mind? 
So let me get right to the point 
I don’t pop my cork for every man I see 
Hey big spender, 
Spend a little time with me.

Walking the streets of NYC, dievca spotted two sexy mannequins.  It brought to mind some sassy dancing from the movie “Sweet Charity”.  A presentation outfit was channeled — something different for Master. “Diversity, dievca, Diversity.”

  • Short Sparkly Dress, form-fitting (Milly)
  • Big Hair (dievca’s has grown back)
  • Large Drop Earrings (Kenneth Jay Lane)
  • Black Heels (Monse or Manolo Blahnik)
  • Smoky Eyes (Urban Decay)
  • Deep Lip Color (Mac)
  • Well-Stretched Body
  • Bob Fosse Moves
  • “Hey, Big Spender” playing in the background.
