Something of Use – the 50/50 Boot at 35 years!

Paper Magazine and Stuart Weitzman 5050 Capsule Collection

Female New Yorkers are boot lovers.  The Men wear boots, too, but the women live in boots for 3 out of 4 seasons.  The Stuart Weitzman 50/50 boot has its place in many a small NYC closet. This versatile style has a forgiving design which allows for large calves to be hugged in comfort.

SOMETHING OF USE ~ dievca has 3 pairs squished in her closet:

The 5050 style launched in 1993, and the legendary over-the-knee boot has long garnered a reputation — and a major celebrity following — for its flawless, comfortable fit and minimalist, sophisticated sensibility. With its distinctive half-and-half construction, featuring a leather or suede front and stretch fabric back, the 5050 continues to live up to the title of “icon” in a world where that word is endlessly overused; it can be paired with any style, any occasion, any genre, any decade.

Like many fashion icons, it only gets better with time. Cut to Fall 2021, Stuart Weitzman debuts a new 5050 Capsule Collection in celebration of its 35th anniversary, featuring new interpretations of this boot, designed to match whatever mood you’re in.

The aptly named 5050 HIGHSHINE dials up the glamour with more than 300 crystal embellishments hand-applied to each pair. Pearl embellishments give the look an ultra-feminine take with the 5050 LIFT PEARL. Silver-tone studs on the 5050 LIFT STUDS offer a punk vibe. The 5050 FRINGE with cascading fringe detail nods to the must-have cowboy boot trend, while the 5050 LIFT WOVEN boot ups the craftsmanship quotient with each pair taking no less than 14 hours to create using handwoven leather (no two are the same). The 5050 LIFT and the 5050 ULTRALIFT boot provide extra height to boost your strut — a 35-mm platform and 50-mm platform, respectively.

dievca is pondering if her closet can hold a fringe pair or the platform…

The best part ~

The best part of being a backend is there is no backend at the back end of the backend. ~ Anup

In the computer world, the “backend” refers to any part of a website or software program that users do not see. It contrasts with the frontend, which refers to a program’s or website’s user interface. In programming terminology, the backend is the “data access layer,” while the frontend is the “presentation layer.”

April 21 2121, National Secretary Day

Nudist Secretary

Are there people who are called Secretaries anymore? (OK, the Secretary of State)  Is it gender-distributed?  Did the original type of job bring a good wage?  What’s the difference with a typist?  Flasback.com took a good look – click here  for the article.  I just remember my Dad introducing us to his secretaries and they were really lovely people. Efficient.

In 1955, the National Secretaries Association changed the dates to the current celebration during the last full week of April. The name of the observance was changed to Professional Secretaries Day/Week in 1981 when the National Secretaries Association became Professional Secretaries International (PSI).

A grueling week has ended.

Good Morning!


Dear March

Dear March – Come in –
How glad I am –
I hoped for you before –
Put down your Hat –
You must have walked –
How out of Breath you are –
Dear March, how are you, and the Rest –
Did you leave Nature well –
Oh March, Come right upstairs with me –
I have so much to tell –

I got your Letter, and the Birds –
The Maples never knew that you were coming –
I declare – how Red their Faces grew –
But March, forgive me –
And all those Hills you left for me to Hue –
There was no Purple suitable –
You took it all with you –

Who knocks? That April –
Lock the Door –
I will not be pursued –
He stayed away a Year to call
When I am occupied –
But trifles look so trivial
As soon as you have come

That blame is just as dear as Praise
And Praise as mere as Blame –

Emily Dickinson

Can you put a price on elegance? Carine Gilson

“As day subtly turns to night and the hours steadily string by,
the dream, at once airy and elegant, comes within reach.
Pleasurably palpable.”

– Carine Gilson

Carine Gilson’s story harks back to the 1990s. A freshly-minted graduate of Antwerp’s prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied fashion, Carine Gilson discovered Maille France, a small Brussels atelier that manufactured fine ladies’ underslips. She immediately fell in love with the world of lingerie.

Carine Gilson decided to acquire the workshop and, with sheer dedication, set out to work on silk, lace, and exceptional materials. In the fashion of the boundlessly creative and refined lingerie creations of yore, Carine Gilson embraced this new adventure, taking her passion to the next level to create unique, breathtaking pieces in her Brussels atelier.

The designer soon launched her couture lingerie line, Carine Gilson, a synonym for a world filled with incomparable beauty.

In no time, the press and finer stores from Japan, England, Italy, and America came calling. Buyers from renowned stores recognized the rare quality of these creations, which conjure the bygone enchantment of times past within our changed, modern world.

The prestige of Carine Gilson’s lingerie has grown quickly thanks to the unwavering excellence of her creations. In the House of Carine Gilson, every piece is lovingly crafted by hand. Perfection and finesse espouse rigor and passion. Lace incrustation is raised to an art form.

Sexy Sleep Eyes

Clash By Night 1952 Marilyn Monroe

Master, it’s been a long two weeks. Your dievca might just need to sleep.
After the nap, she’ll look at you with sexy sleepy eyes and ask,
“How may I serve my Master?” Read the rest of this entry »


Scent: Attraction and Repulsion

dievca caught up with one of her Nephews and caught a whiff of plain Patchuli – a strong scent she absolutely HATES.  Hey, whatever works for him and his family – just don’t stand too close to your Aunt.  She will love you from a distance after coming in for the initial hug.

That brought to mind scents, why someone wears scents and what might be attractive to others:

Apparently, Women looking for love should wear floral fragrances to attract a man, while preferring a ‘woody’ scent on potential lovers, according to a new study.

British-based bathroom supplier Showerstoyou.co.uk teamed up with Fragrantica.com, to explore the most popular scents of the year and the notes they have in common.

Their study of 3,978 men and 3,743 women, revealed that most women have a preference for men wearing a ‘woody’ scent while 85 percent of men admit they’re most attracted to women spritzed with a ‘floral’ fragrance.

A Woman’s Most Seductive Fragrance Notes:

RANKING 

1 Floral 85%

2 Sweet 81%

3 Fruity 78%

4 Vanilla 73%

5 Citrus 69%

6 Rose 63%

7 Aromatic 58%

8 Powdery 52%

7 Powdery 48%

8 Balsamic 43%

9 Leather 38%

10 Musk 34%

What do you think about the rankings? dievca loves the smell of leather~

Men voted My Way by Giorgio Armani as the most popular perfume of 2020 for women, ranking highly among the scents, with blossoming notes of floral.

Meanwhile 86 percent of women said the most sensual scents for men contained the outdoorsy note ‘woody’, voting Dior Homme 2020 by Christian Dior the most popular 2020 fragrance for men.

Hmmm, dievca prefers the notes of Green Tea and Bergamot which run crisp and fruity…maybe not so romatic. Master? He just smells of himself which is very sexy and comforting to His dievca.

In the past, dievca’s nose has lead her to the following Men’s Scents (maybe it was the Men who wore them) – its just random chance that they were launched a decade apart – Good Life is the one she decided to wear herself – note the patchouli in two of them, but the one she liked best doesn’t have it and is citrusy.

Polo Raph Lauren launched in 1978:

Top notes are Juniper Berries, Caraway, Artemisia, Basil, Coriander and Bergamot; middle notes are Pine Tree Needles, Leather, Chamomile, Pepper, Carnation, Geranium, Jasmine and Rose; base notes are Tobacco, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Cedar, Vetiver, Musk and Amber.

Spooky – Presentation Outfit

Yvonne DeCarlo as a Kitty

🎃Spooky – Dusty Springfield

In the cool of the evening
When everything is getting kind of groovy
You call me up and ask me
Would i like to go with you and see a movie?
First i say no, I’ve got some plans for tonight
And then i stop and say all right

Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little boy like you

You always keep me guessing
I never seem to know what you are thinking
And if a girl looks at you
It’s for sure your little eye will be a-winking
I get confused, i never know where i stand
And then you smile and hold my hand

Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little boy like you

Spooky

If you decide some day to stop this little game that you are a-playing
I’m gonna tell you all the things my heart’s been a-dying to be saying
Just like a ghost you’ve been a-haunting my dreams
But now i know you’re not what you seem

Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little boy like you

Spooky

Ahh, ahh, spooky, mmm, spooky, ahh, ahh, ahh, spooky, ooh, spooky
Ahh, aah, aah, spooky
