Bombshell in lingerie: Mamie van Doren

I truly believe that one of the reasons why I look and feel so well
is because I’ve very few inhibitions.

I don’t care about age.
Life is too short to worry about what other people think. ~Mamie van Doren


It is possible that blondes also prefer gentlemen.

Something of Use + Fantasy: Sexy in an Apron

Do you own an apron? Do you use it while BBQ-ing or baking?
dievca has never owned one. she’s not sure of what she is missing Her friends have laughed at her and asked what she does for dinner parties.
she cooks, changes, and hopes for the best afterward.

What about an Apron as a D/s Presentation Outfit?

Hmm, could be interesting but one might need to be careful when sitting or leaning against the countertop.

dievca found the apron she wants:

The RE/DONE | Levi’s Denim Apron is created from scraps of vintage Levi’s, reducing production waste and creating functional, machine washable, and collectible kitchen-wear. Each apron is upcycled using a waterless process from unique vintage materials and is completely one-of-a-kind.

Desperate for a Dress

And the Sun…

It’s hard to wear a dress when biking up to Master’s place,
but dievca is getting sick of practical athletic shorts and pants.

she did a little summer splurging on the MatchesFashion.com sales pages:

Rhode Jasmine Floral shirred cotton mini dress

Merlette Tuileries white cotton drawstring Dress

Etro Fantasy Print red side-tie Bikini

Should work out with the RE/done upcycled Levi’s denim mask:

Dripping in Gold


Harlow and Fox Persephone_Cassiopeia Beaded Gold Robe / Kimono
Please note this item is made to order; please allow up to 8 weeks for your garment to be made for you.
$1599.00

Breathtaking cascades of hand-beaded gold glass trailing fringe beads and pearls drench the body with pure decadence in the Cassiopeia gold beaded robe; with all seams luxuriously bound in gold silk. Worn alone, the sheer tulle beneath offers glimpses of the skin, or pair with either black or almond silk lining robes to create a more opaque finish. The luxurious beaded robe could also be worn over a simple evening dress for a jaw-dropping outerwear look.

The one review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Completely Decadent!
This robe is the most decadent, fabulous thing I own! It’s even more beautiful in person, dripping with strings of glistening gold beads made for twirling.

Fit-wise the size M is the same as the other H&F robes I own. The color of the beads is a lovely soft gold with pearls at the end. The beads are securely sewn on individually to the tulle base. I imagine styling it over both lingerie and as outerwear over a cream jumpsuit for a winter white ensemble for the ballet.


Wrong, wrong, wrong – but wouldn’t it be fun?

Right about now, dievca should be attending the final fundraiser of the year.
Not happening for obvious reasons…

Its dievca’s habit to keep a lookout for outfits that fit the Gala bill.
she ran into this Riasa & Vanessa outfit that made her look twice and smile.

Then shake her head for the many ways it is just wrong for her build:

  • Crop top at this age for formal wear?
  • Pants that sweeping and long on a short body? (hard to hem)
  • Short torso and curves trying to drape those sequins?

 

Well, this is what she had planned:

Her Black Halo Lucy Dress in Jellybean with these:


—————————————————————————————————————

  • Stuart Weitzman Axis Sandals Black
  • Chandelier Earrings
  • Subversive +Target ribbon bracelet
  • Garay vintage black fabric clutch
  • French Luxe hair combs in black
  • Bobbi Brown Art Stick Harlow red

“Nothing risque, nothing gained.”


And Just for the fun of it:

Cagey Floral (lingerie)

Contemporary and classic all at once, the CAGE BRA has additional straps that form a pattern resembling a cage, either in the front or back or both sides.. It looks fantastic on any size bust because it appears to give ample support to any cup size. Caged bras look awesome on goth girls, bondage mistresses, and fans of Fifty Shades of Grey. Conversely, those who prefer a more traditionally feminine style can rock a caged bra when they fancy flaunting an edgy look.

Despite its name, wearing a cage bra doesn’t mean you’re locking up your bust. The cage bra gets its name from multiple straps that spread above or below the cups for an elegant look. Coverage: Cage bras vary in coverage, but usually they favor showing off your curves and sexy cleavage rather than full coverage.

Blue Lingerie and the Miracle of Spandex

click photo for link to a great post about 1950’s girdles

The Miracle of Lycra Spandex- Fairy Godmother to Women Everywhere.  Invented in 1959 it wasn’t until  1962 until  the full scale manufacturer of Lycra went on the market , expanding possibilities for women everywhere.  Girdles were no longer only peach, ivory, and black instead bright pastels and patterns became the rage. (L) Vintage ad 1962 Hollywood Vassarette Girdle and Bra (R) Fairy Godmother Cinderella Walt Disney

The synthetic fabric used to make stretchy clothing is commonly referred to as spandex and as Lycra. DuPont created the term Lycra as a brand name for its spandex, and now the terms have become interchangeable.

Dupont textiles scientist Joseph C. Shivers was determined to find a fiber to replace rubber in garments. He made a breakthrough in the early 1950s when he used an intermediate substance to modify Dacron polyester. This modification produced a stretchy fiber that could withstand high temperatures. After nearly a decade of research, the fiber was perfected in 1959. Originally called Fiber K, DuPont chose the trade name Lycra to distinguish its brand of spandex fiber.

Polyurethane Fibers (micro photo 100X)

Spandex fibers are produced in four ways: melt extrusion, reaction spinning, solution dry spinning, and solution wet spinning. All of these methods include the initial step of reacting monomers to produce a prepolymer. Once the prepolymer is formed, it is reacted further in various ways and drawn out to make the fibers.

A blessing and curse:

The comfort offered by using fabrics with Spandex comes with an environmental concern.

Today most clothes containing spandex end up as non-recyclable waste once they have been worn out, as fabric blends containing spandex are difficult to recycle. This contributes to the pollution of the environment.

When clothes are washed, hundreds of thousands of microfibres are released into the wastewater, ending up in the oceans, and if clothes contain plastic then they will cause microplastic pollution.

A delicate Peach from the 1940s

Sometimes something delicate is called for in a D/s or Vanilla relationship. A simple elegance that allows participants to drift and dream. Open windows let in the sun and a warm breeze, spring blossoms kiss the air. The soft-touch of sensual silk.
A vintage whisper. 

ABOUT:
Beautiful vintage pale pink/peachy slip c. 1940s. The nightgown is delicate and lovely. It features intricate embroidery along the bodice and butterfly sleeves with beautiful netted lace. Impressive vintage seam work throughout, with three delicate tie-backs on each side to tighten it.

Presentation in white with a dark ending: Marie McDonald

Marie McDonald 

Marie was born in Kentucky, the daughter of a former Ziegfeld Girl and granddaughter of opera singer. At the age of 15, Marie became a Powers model and dropped out of school so she could enter beauty pageants, winning the title of “Miss Yonkers” and “The Queen of Coney Island” on the way to becoming “Miss New York” in 1939. Soon after, she moved to Hollywood and became a singer with Tommy Dorsey’s Orchestra, but could only land movie roles in the chorus line or small one-line parts.

Lacking the talent to really make it in Hollywood, she sought attention through scandal.

On top of 7 marriages, she had affairs with two of Elizabeth Taylor’s ex-husbands and even mobster Bugsy Siegel.  In 1957 she got national attention by claiming to have been kidnapped by two men.  Afterwards, her tabloid appearances were numerous, with car accidents, arrests, alcoholism, drug abuse, and ultimately committed to a psychiatric clinic.

After escaping from the clinic, and a wild string of abuse and excess. In 1965, McDonald was found dead at the age of 42 as a result of a drug overdose. Her widower followed.

dievca is now planning to stay away from white lingerie….

History of Hair – Presentation Options


Well…options for dievca to work on.
Her hair hasn’t looked like any of these options.
Ever.
(Wait! She did have a pixie cut at one time)

How about your hair?


Agent Provocateur Athletic Endeavours (lingerie)

Agent Provocateur Athletic Endeavours – Play To Win.

dievca’s Mother (85+) said something kind and profound when dievca was irritated about her muscles and curves.

I see a lot of frail and sick people.
You are so strong and healthy, its beautiful.

The comment made dievca stop and think about how it is not how thin your thighs are, its what you thighs can do that matters. Shapely is nice but healthy and functioning is 100 times better.

Think about that the next time you become frustrated when your glute muscles take up a lot of space in your jeans.

The bodies above are primo athletic and gorgeous in the lingerie. Something to emulate, strength and tone rather than crazy juice cleanses to thin out.

Reality VS D/s (bras)

“I ain’t exactly the Fleur du Mal or Agent Provocateur type. I like a friendly bra, not one that intimidates.”
