The energy you expend


has to be regenerated, somehow.

dievca passed out early and hard, woke up late, and is re-energized.

Happy Sunday to you!


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….

Some things are lost in translation…

Presentation Outfits…100 Years of Fashion in 2 minutes

dievca was looking to be inspired for Presentation Outfits: she ran into this video and it made her smile and think about options for Master. It seems like the most ‘ladylike’ outfits are from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

The 1910s are too covered and too involved for finding clothing pieces, the 1970s seem like novelty outfits – Disco-oriented, dievca lived the BIG HAIR era of the 1980s (she has a vintage Norma Kamali red satin dress…), the 1990s are back in style – now.

Lovesick = Heartsick = Retail is Tough

Lovesick Corrective Apparel was formed in the spring of 1995, by Andrea Johnson. Andrea’s formal background includes a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Emily Carr College of Art and Design /Open University (1991) and diplomas in Pattern drafting, Construction Techniques and Fashion Design from the Fashion Arts Certificate Program at VCC (1995). Her natural deviance combined with a love and hatred of fashion to create an outlet for ideas born from 1950’s fetish magazines, case histories, and thrift store curiosities.

The site offers sections: Corsets, Restraints, Undergarments, and Gifts.  Corsets can be bought ‘off-the-rack’ or custom made.

Looks very interesting, right?

dievca called the Ontario number on the site – it is disconnected. The last blog information was offered around 2006. The Lingerie Addict cited the website in 2011. Purple Passion NYC is not offering the brand on their website.  It looks like a fun and interesting retail BDSM website is done.  If this isn’t true, please let dievca know.
