So, you are heading towards 50…
do you wear the bikini in public or not?


You do!

If you bought one from Fused Hawaii that has the Kohanaiki Top to hold those glorious breasts and the Kona Bottom to hug your spectacular curves without showing God & Country spillage.

dievca had really good luck with her
MOSS KOHANAIKI KONA SET,
but take a look around for other colors, patterns
and styles.
You know its good
if dievca sent a bikini selfie to Master!

The collar doesn’t lock,
but is forms a seamless tubular ring.


Summer Lingerie

dievca was thinking about Summer and lingerie. Walking on a veranda in bare feet and a light robe. Her mind wandered to fabrics which breathe and are light, such as silk and cotton. She ran into some simple pieces:

The Vermont Store Cotton Seersucker Robe Teal

Peruvian Collection Belle Epoque Cotton Floral Robe

Only Hearts Silk Robe

Lauren RL Ballet Long Nightgown

Hanro Pleated Juliet Cotton Nightgown

Agent Provocateur Baroness Silk Chemise

Olivia von Halle Silk Satin Pajama Set

But honestly…in the summer, dievca sleeps in the nude.


Stealing from the Boys…

With the Gloomy Weather dievca had picked up a packable anorak from the Gap.
It’s not super ladylike,
but it’s been useful and a the print is a conversation starter.

GapFit Hybrid Pullover Anorak MSRP $79.95

dievca bought a Men’s small and it goes over layers.
The anorak is on sale at gap.com for $49.95 and possibly an extra 40% off –
but there is only size XL left online.
You can check availability for other sizes at stores, on the site.

Maybe that would work for you or someone you know?
If dievca bought it for Master, it would be too matchy-matchy…right?

Strapless


strapless bra

A type of bra created and designed in various colors, cup sizes, materials, mechanisms and styles that does not include any shoulder strap (s) in the design.

Strapless bras are useful with clothing which doesn’t cover the shoulders.  They are tricky to wear.
Some suggestions for buying a strapless bra:

1. Play Around With Sizes

It’s a good rule of thumb to get measured when you’re buying a new bra, but your usual size could vary from your strapless size. “When buying a strapless bra, you should size down in the band and up in the cup,” Linda the Bra Lady suggest on her blog. “The reason for this is that the band is the only source of support, so it has to fit snug to keep the bra, and the girls, up.”

2. Make It Stick

To lower the risk of your strapless heading south, help your bra stick to your skin as much as possible. For example, keep your skin clean and don’t put beauty products like oils and creams on your chest. Try to look for styles that have sticky features like silicone or a rubber grippy band on the inside seam.

3. Try Before You Buy

When buying a strapless bra, the fit and size of your bra can vary hugely from brand to brand so get in the changing room for a trying on session.

4. Look For Well-Constructed Garments

Women who are well-endowed will get greater comfort from a strapless with a little extra band support. If you’re full busted, you need a strapless bra featuring a wider band, three hooks in the back, and extra support through the cups.

5. Consider The Longline

If a wide band doesn’t do the job, try a longline style. These styles will give you some reinforcement from below your chest. A longline bra has a bodice which will help support your bust, the band extends all the way to the waist for maximum lift.” (top photo)

6. Fill It In

Fit your bra to your largest breast and use a pad to fill in the other side, no one has equally sized breasts unless they had help.

7. Take Proper Care of it

When it comes to underwire or more sturdy bras, always hand wash, let them dry with the cups facing upwards and smooth out any dents to help maintain the bra’s original shape.


Is Master on to something?

Master has turned in His French Press for……

THE PERFECT COFFEEMAKER?

Dr. Peter Schlumbohm PhD. Chemistry invented the Chemex in 1941. He developed more than 300 product patents while in pursuit of making everyday objects more functional, beautiful, and pleasing to use. As a chemist, he had a strong understanding of coffee extraction which allowed him to apply his pursuit to coffee-making. Made from non-porous borosilicate glass and utilizing bonded paper filters the Chemex brews coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. (Doesn’t it look like an Erlenmeyer Flask?)

THE CLAIM TO PERFECTION

The Chemex company website makes the following claim: “The Chemex® coffeemaker, together with the Chemex-Bonded® Coffee Filter, makes perfect coffee. Clear, pure, flavorful and without bitterness or sediment every time.” Siting the use of the scientifically designed glass and proprietary filters, the Chemex brews a coffee with a distinct purity that allows it to be covered and stored in the fridge without losing flavor.

Should dievca give up her beloved French Press
and follow in Her Master’s Footsteps?

Not breaking Fashion rules: finally understanding why

There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

In the early 1900s, the rule about only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day was started according to the vacationing schedule of the elite, when there “was a dress code for practically every occasion.” Those who could afford it would leave their homes behind and spend months at the sea or in the mountains, where they had a completely different type of wardrobe, including the light, bright white pieces most associated with the summer months. When those fun-loving summer days were over, the white clothes were packed away and the people went back to their regular lives, having escaped the oppressive heat between the end of May and early September. Those white clothes that they loved during the summer months had no place in their “real life” wardrobes, so the cutoff for white clothing became Labor Day.

Nowadays, you may have started wearing white on the first 90F (32 C) day of year or earlier.

dievca thought she still avoided wearing white until after Memorial Day because it was the “rule”, but she finally realized that she uses white sparingly—period, because….its New York City.

Can you imagine how dirty this Helmut Lang Leather Slip Dress would get?

And that is the true reason dievca doesn’t really break the “white” rule.

Happy Memorial Day! (and wear white for dievca)
