Gay Pride with Rocket Dog

The Gay Pride Parade for NYC kicks off at 12:00 Noon.
Begins at 36th and 5th and ends at Christopher and Greenwich Streets.

The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.

dievca isn’t planning to join the Parade, but she will be wearing something “Rainbow” in support:


Balenciaga: At Knife Point

(click photo to purchase)

Master and dievca are not into “Knife Play” — but dievca could see herself presenting in these “knives”. Something “sharp” for Master. XO

New for Pre-AW17, these sharply pointed Knife boots are a riff on the fetishistic styles that dominated Balenciaga’s SS17 runway. They’re veiled in cobalt-blue lace and shaped to fit like a second skin, ending high on the thigh. Let the pin-thin stiletto heel lift a neatly belted trench coat to seductive new heights.

It seems like the SS17 pink version is “sold out” on net-a-porter…. so move fast!


Cordage: Alberta Ferretti


Ties that bind
Cord Belt


Beautiful for Summer

(Just arrived on dievca’s doorstep – it was on sale. 💋)

“In the Pink!”


Meaning: informal in very good health or spirits
The earliest citations of ‘in the pink’ are from the 16th century, the meaning was ‘the very pinnacle of something’, but not necessarily limited to health.

dievca would wear this pink sofa well…if Master had one.
she is feeling healthier and Life is going relatively well.

As for the color:
Master is not one for introducing pink into His Life.
dievca doesn’t do much pink, either,
but she thought these items might bring a glow:

Actually, dievca might just go for this Presentation Look!
