Balenciaga: At Knife Point

(click photo to purchase)

Master and dievca are not into “Knife Play” — but dievca could see herself presenting in these “knives”. Something “sharp” for Master. XO

New for Pre-AW17, these sharply pointed Knife boots are a riff on the fetishistic styles that dominated Balenciaga’s SS17 runway. They’re veiled in cobalt-blue lace and shaped to fit like a second skin, ending high on the thigh. Let the pin-thin stiletto heel lift a neatly belted trench coat to seductive new heights.

It seems like the SS17 pink version is “sold out” on net-a-porter…. so move fast!


In honor of the Coney Island Mermaid Parade

Water

by Robert Lowell
 It was a Maine lobster town—
each morning boatloads of hands
pushed off for granite
quarries on the islands,

and left dozens of bleak 
white frame houses stuck
like oyster shells
on a hill of rock,

and below us, the sea lapped
the raw little match-stick 
mazes of a weir,
where the fish for bait were trapped.

Remember? We sat on a slab of rock.
From this distance in time
it seems the color
of iris, rotting and turning purpler,

but it was only 
the usual gray rock
turning the usual green
when drenched by the sea.

The sea drenched the rock
at our feet all day,
and kept tearing away 
flake after flake.

One night you dreamed
you were a mermaid clinging to a wharf-pile,
and trying to pull
off the barnacles with your hands.

We wished our two souls 
might return like gulls
to the rock.
 In the end, 
the water was too cold for us.

Would you spend $$$ on shorts?

dievca saw a pair of shorts she fell in love with (gallery at the bottom).
Yes, they were on the runway – but they are a serious investment.
dievca bought her last pair of shorts three years ago…

Here’s some of her “go to” shorts and what they cost…
…should she make the investment?

Alice & Olivia Suede Shorts, dievca paid $60.00 Loehman’s

Organic by John Patrick Shorts, dievca paid $40.00 Barney’s Warehouse Sale

Current Elliott Button Front Jean Shorts, dievca paid $150 ShopBop

Glitter in interesting places


This could be interesting for presentation or an absolute disaster…
Does it hit the “top” for my GLITTER GLAMOURS?!?!
Apparently it is in the 2017 Music Festival clothing kit~
(is it like sand? does it get in weird places?)

Disco Tits are a Music Festival Dream


What does it mean?

A biker?
(with all that hardware blowing in the wind?)
Weight-bearing exercise?
(only on one side?)
Someone who loses their keys?
(can you find them?)

Look, dievca mentioned she likes being chained, but even she was boondoggled by this one…
(actually, look up close, it is quite artful.)


looking back to smile

“Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit.”

― Virgil, Eclogues. Georgics. Aeneid: Books 1-6

This encouragement was written on a wall, where I hope it remains today. The sense of the phrase is: Someday, we’ll look back on even this and smile.

“In the Pink!”


Meaning: informal in very good health or spirits
The earliest citations of ‘in the pink’ are from the 16th century, the meaning was ‘the very pinnacle of something’, but not necessarily limited to health.

dievca would wear this pink sofa well…if Master had one.
she is feeling healthier and Life is going relatively well.

As for the color:
Master is not one for introducing pink into His Life.
dievca doesn’t do much pink, either,
but she thought these items might bring a glow:

Actually, dievca might just go for this Presentation Look!
