dievca does repair Master’s clothing via needle and thread or clean items via soaking, etc. This is just normal Life stuff for a domestic dievca from the Midwest. In a past life, she did sew items with the sewing machine, quilts, dresses, hemming, etc. The creativity dropped off with moving to NYC. Not enough room and the sewing machine lived at her parents house -and is now in the Midwestern storage unit.
Anyways, dievca bought this dress:
The Raquella Allegra Grace Dress in Apple.
Originally $370 on sale for $99.90
The Grace Dress is inspired by the one-and-only Grace Jones. You’ll love the relaxed fit with dramatic blouson sleeves in lightweight stain. Wear yours with leather sandals and a petite bag.
Fits true to size, take your normal size
Model is 5’8″ and is wearing a size 2
It looks like a super bright color which is lovely for Summer. Yes, it might be too much for dievca… but she has a plan to dye the dress if she hates the color. Rayon fabric takes dye very well, though the fabric becomes delicate when wet. dievca is inspired by this current Raquel Allegra Dip-dyed Grace Dress in Indigo ($475):
And if it ends up a “dievca disaster” its only $99 – not an emergency.
dievca will let you know what happens!

The Barneys sale (Madison Ave) … is still too expensive for this dievca~
Everything she wanted to buy calculated out around $700 -$800: Tate earrings or a ring. Marni sweater, Manolo Blahnik pumps, Zero Maria Cornejo coat. But nothing special enough to pull the trigger – as dievca’s friend said, “If these Louboutin boots were $450-$500, I would do it”.
So, nothing of use – but at least she got back to the store before it was gone.
dievca moved away from Barneys when they rebranded the Co-op in 2013, ‘sidelined’ Simon Doonan – and seemed like they lost their sense of humor. When they closed the UWS location? Ah, well….no reason to schlep across the City.
Here are some of the items dievca considered at the sale:

Maybe these ones instead:
