Master is back!

20221107_183829

The temperature hit 76 F (25 C), dievca’s back was sweating from her backpack while cycling to the Dermatologist.  After getting a clear Skin Cancer Screening – dievca stopped by a Nail Salon for a Mani/ Pedi to pretty up her tootsies for Master. 

Now, dievca doesn’t always follow the season’s “hot” colors – she chooses what speaks to her in the moment.  This color was created by OPI in 2012: Suzi and the 7 Dusseldorfs.

We’ll see if Master appreciates the grooming or the lingerie. XO

Last minute invite – a Gala

At, 3:42 pm yesterday, dievca received an invitation to a show, cocktail party and dinner as a fundraiser tonight.  she has 1 hour to get dressed at work, then to the theatre.  The good news is dievca’s hair is a blunt cut bob which won’t take much fiddling, she can get her face washed and made up in five minutes.  It’s what to wear that is the challenge.

The 2nd piece of good news is that the fundraiser does not require “heavy duty” glamour…but the weather has been unpredictable…

(all items in this post are labelled – click on the photo for a good look and the Brand)

Here are dievca’s 1st thought “easy” options:

Adding Shoes:

At this point in her Life, dievca will need two not very glamourous items:

No time for a Mani/Pedi, but no one goes wrong with a good Lipstick:

Who knows which way the jewelry will go:

Clutch options are easy:

But the coat or wrap depends upon the weather:

Wish dievca luck!

Zippered front – is that cheating?

Wearing a corset can be a challenge…as dievca well knows.

At first, Master’s dievca had to learn how to put on the corset – Master had to step in to help on a few occasions.  Years later dievca became too chubby for some of her corsets – something about her waist changing with perimenopause.  The hook and eyes with the steel whale bones have been a challenge – so when dievca saw this corset with a zipper…

Hmm~

Might be an asset to her lingerie closet.

Tanga vs Cheeky

Cheeky

Tanga Briefs

Tanga briefs are a type of thong underwear that cover both your front and back with triangular pieces of material. They provide moderate to minimal rear coverage between a bikini cut and a thong and also have wider sides. They can be a good way to transition from a traditional bikini panty to a thong.

Cheeky Underwear

Cheeky underwear are true to their name and enhance your derriere by exposing the better part of it. They have less coverage than bikinis but more than thongs or G-strings. The front and waist portion are mostly covered.

Panties

Garter, Garter Belt, Garter Skirt

Initionally, Garters were use to hold up hose or socks.  The advent of elastic dimished the usage of Garters in real life, but you still see limited usage at Weddings. Why?

gartertoss

Traditionally, the witnesses would accompany a newly wed couple to the bridal chambers to ensure consummation. The wedding garter being retrieved from the bride served as proof to other guests that the deed was done, and the garter was then tossed into the sea of people.

Symbolically, the garter was thought to influence fertility. It also symbolized marriage consummation and future children for the couple. Because of this, the garter was fiercely sought after at weddings. It was an honor to detach the garter from the bride and was believed that the luck of the wedding couple would pass on to the guest who obtained the garter.

Garter Belts (or Suspender Belts): a belt with attached garters or fasteners, worn as an undergarment to hold up stockings.

Lovesick Garterbelt

Which brings us to the newer term-

Garter Skirt: (a dievca and Master favorite) A wider garter belt acting as a short skirt or mini skrt which can attach stockings.  Allows for bottom coverage with easy access – a flattering, sassy way to Present.

Dress the Part

Dress the  Partdievca has a Navy Blue Silk Dress that makes her feel amazing. Its’s not the most expensive dress nor the most fashionable, but she likes to wear it whenever she needs to clean up and present to humans. she can dress the outfit up or down with shoes/boots and accessories – any way it goes on it – she feels great.

dievca stands taller.

A lot of people argue that what you wear isn’t important, or that it is unfair to suggest that people should buy clothes to boost their self-esteem. If we are being realistic about the working world or IRL, we have to point out the truth: How you present yourself is important. You don’t need to have a closet full of expensive clothes to get ahead, but you will feel a lot better if you have one or two outfits you absolutely love that you can wear whenever you need a pick-me-up.

dievca doesn’t wear the silk dress because it will impress other people — she wears it because it makes her feel ready to take on the world!

Tattoo You – Aubade Paris

ta_box_1

A new lease of life for tattoos

Etched into our skin for thousands of years, tattoos have become artistic as well as aesthetic. A phenomenon that has broken all the boundaries of fashion.

For a long time, tattoos conjured up the tribal images of ancient cultures and exotic peoples, with enormous symbols covering the arms, backs and torsos of Polynesian, Maori and Japanese people, for example. And rightly so: for centuries, tattoos represented a rite of passage, symbols of protection or a sign of belonging to a particular clan or tribe.

Until the trend took off again around 1990 to 2000. From the shower of tiny stars on the back of Rihanna’s neck to the giant words and patterns on David Beckham’s body, these permanent markings have become extremely fashionable. The Musée du Quai Branly in Paris hosted an exhibition on tattoos in 2015.

As a way to stand out from the crowd or express your personality, tattoos have become like a second skin. They can be proudly shown off, or reserved for only the most intimate views.

adjective
  1. (of a remark, opinion, or idea) overused and consequently of little import; lacking originality or freshness.

dievca ended up in a Mall after that Beach Memorial Mass. There wasn’t much creativity offered from any of the retailers (H&M, Aritzia, Uniqlo, Lululemon, Brooks Brothers, Zara, Kate Spade, Coach, Muji, Sephora).Ramie Balloon-Sleeve Dress | Banana Republic

dievca was bored – though Banana Republic offered this ramie peasant top dress in green. Something with pockets and short is always welcome to dievca’s closet. she was befuddled by the sizing in the stores – sometimes she needed a large, other times a small…strange. Ramie Balloon-Sleeve Dress | Banana Republic

Note: An Honorable Mention award should be given to the H&M LemLem collaboration’s Lyocell-blend Kaftan Dress. The dress is sold out online and dievca didn’t get to try it on (H&M is not allowing people to use the dressing rooms) and the line to purchase items was very long. she got out of there fast~

Has anyone else had a Mall experience? Maybe something more exciting and successful than dievca’s ride?


Fashion vs. Styling: they are not the same.

What Is the Difference Between Style and Fashion? There is an overlap between style and fashion, but a good rule of thumb is that style relates to the individual, while fashion is more collective.

One Dapper Street Fashion vs Style

”Fashion” is tangible clothes, the ones you see in stores, in magazines, and on celebrities.
“Style” is intangible.
‘Style is how you take the fashion and interpret it into an outfit or look that makes you feel like you. It’s not all about the fashion or trends but rather accepting yourself, working with what flatters your figure, finding what tickles your fancy and wearing wearing what makes you confident.’Laurie Brucker, certified image consultant, personal stylist and speaker.

Why is dievca pondering this difference?
Fashion vs style 2she wants to determine the ratio of classic clothing vs. fads she needs in her closet to look unique.
she doesn’t want a uniform, but she doesn’t want too keep ten million pieces, either.
The Marie Kondo credo doesn’t make dievca feel comfortable – but the ’30 use’ rule seems to apply better.
Will you use an item approximately 30 times in your Life? If yes, keep it.

Is that enough to create dievca’s style using Whering?  Probably.


Heels for Presentation

Rupert Sanderson 2019 Strappy Pump

Have you been presenting for your Sir/Madame in heels?
Or did your style shift with COVID-19?

dievca did present in heels during the past year.
But, she hasn’t thought about buying new heels in a long time.
A quick look around the web didn’t offer anything to trip dievca’s interest.
she may have to go back to 2019 and find these Rupert Sanderson Pumps.

When you need to accessorize your Presentation Outfit~

With a delightful surprise…

Call on Julian Snelling – the creator of ROSEBUDS in 2002. He developed this extraordinary jewels. The master has left us, and unimaginative vultures have been quick to take over his work; but like all copies, they are only similar in appearance… It is a true jewel that sublimates this intimate part of the body that is the anus. Decorated with a crystal Swarovsky™ or a bronze sculpture, made in France, it gives incomparable pleasure to both men and women…
Available at Coco de Mer – UK and Brigade Mondaine – France.


Something of Use: Hiding the Fish Oil

dievca kept hiding the large ugly bottle of Fish Oil pills in her cupboard,
taking a pill once a week…maybe.

That’s not an effective way to ingest a Fish Oil supplement.
It needs to be taken 3 times a day with meals.
Changing containers and leaving the pills on the countertop has made a world of difference.
Much more elegant, much more apt to work.

Something of use!

Healthline: 13 Important Benefits of Taking Fish Oil Supplements

Omega-3s contribute to normal brain and eye development. They fight inflammation and may help prevent heart disease and a decline in brain function.

As fish oil contains a lot of omega-3s, those at risk of these disorders can benefit from taking it.

However, eating whole foods is almost always better than taking supplements, and eating two portions of oily fish per week can provide you with enough omega-3s.

In fact, fish is as effective as fish oil — if not more so — at preventing many diseases.

That said, fish oil supplements are a good alternative if you don’t eat a lot of fish.

Turquoise thread, anyone? (a dievca Disaster)

So, dievca ended up picking the Oscar de la Renta dress and was planning to wear Proenza Schouler heels with a gray clutch.

Oscar de la Renta Turquoise Dress



When doing a last try-on with the proper Spanx underpinnings, dievca managed to put her thumb through a seam and she doesn’t have turquoise thread to fix it. Plus, the heels – any heels, were killing her knee.

So, back to the drawing board with flats in mind.

~diversity does make for some strange bedfellows~

di·ver·si·ty

dəˈvərsədē,dīˈvərsədē/
noun
  1. the state of being diverse; variety.
    “there was much diversity in the style of the reports”

    Master has made statements about diversity to dievca in the past. He hasn’t mentioned it lately, but that might be because dievca works hard to create an atmosphere that offers diversity. And, in return, Master has made sure the venues, restaurants, activities are diverse, too. So, between presentation outfits, activities, themes, cosplay, etc.

    Master and dievca are keeping on it.

    Variety is the Spice of Life!

    But like the photo says — diversity does make for some strange bedfellows and creates situations for dievca and Master to laugh at when things go south.
    (Ex: Thai food that about killed us both~whew.)
