Denim Dynamics – Trucker Dress

Cotton Citizen Caballo Denim Dress $440 (click photo)

A denim dress never goes out of style. Why? Denim by itself is considered to be a timeless fabric that works for different weather conditions and occasions. There are classic denim dresses, as well as modern styles with sexy cuts and mini lengths. A denim dress can be styled with all kinds of shoes, starting from sneakers, flats and wedge sandals to sexy stilettos and classy pumps.

The Fabric:

Denim is a sturdy cotton warp-faced textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces a diagonal ribbing that distinguishes it from cotton duck. While a denim predecessor known as dungaree has been produced in India for hundreds of years, denim itself was first produced in the French city of Nîmes under the name “serge de Nîmes”.

The most common denim is indigo denim, in which the warp thread is dyed, while the weft thread is left white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the textile is dominated by the blue warp threads and the other side is dominated by the white weft threads. This causes blue jeans to be white on the inside. The indigo dyeing process, in which the core of the warp threads remains white, creates denim’s signature fading characteristics. ~Wikipedia

The Dress:

The Trucker style of denim dress takes its cue from the Levi’s Type III jacket with some distinctive features to look for:

  • Cropped cut that ends at the waist
  • Slim, tailored cut
  • Buttons at sleeve, pocket, and front
  • Chest pockets with pointed flaps
  • Generally, two slanted (or “V-shaped”) seams that run from chest pocket to waist
  • A point collar

Add some length and you’ve got a Denim Trucker Dress:

Though dievca loves the look of the Cotton Citizen Caballo Dress (photo – top of post), she is rocking the less expensive Lucky Brand Trucker Dress.
Why? 100% cotton vs. some lycra.
dievca always goes with the stretch! she’s planning on snakeskin boots with the dress or maybe tights and OTK boots for winter. Hmmm, a casual presentation for Master…time to think on it.


A cozy upgrade – something of use.

Floor to ceilings makes for a great view,
but dievca’s apartment doesn’t warm-up quickly before the morning sun.

  • 50″ x 70″
  • 100% polyester with 95% cotton, 5% spandex trim

Fuzzy, cozy, light and wash machine friendly, the throw has been extremely useful, but not super stylish.

dievca thought she would upgrade with Missoni and donate the Ugg to Goodwill. Instead, she’s been using both throws consistently, one on the sofa and one in the bedroom.

Love or Hate?


It’s One of the Healthier Candies

While it’s traditionally made with honey and corn syrup and contains roughly 28 grams of sugar per serving, Candy Corn is fat-free and only 140 calories per handful. So enjoy the stuff in good health (if you can stomach it).

National Candy Corn Day is observed annually on October 30th.

As you can see from the photo above, dievca loves candy corn – but only at Halloween. she does not like the candy pumpkins and swears that the white part tastes different than the rest of the corn…

Where do you stand on this issue?🌽🎃🌽


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.
