Years ago, dievca wore Uggs. They were toasty and warm, but perhaps didn’t have the best “look”. The multi-colored zipper was interesting, though.
She moved on to a pair of shearling/suede high tops that were made in Turkey and “off brand”. They were amazing, until they finally disintegrated. She went on the quest for something similar and failed.
She found a pair of Ganni Masha Texas shearling Boots on eBay, but they were just that bit too small and not really warm, so she sold them.
Yes, the Canadian Cougar Pillow Boot are still in rotation and still amazing/useful, but dievca likes to have a lower profile boot in rotation for easy slip-on, without the red interior.
Which brings us to the surprise boot. Something dievca bought for $99 at an end-of-season sale, last Spring. The move was a desperate attempt to replace those shearling high tops. These boots sat in her closet all Summer and she was going to sell them because she thought they looked “clunky”, until a cold day called for a quick slip-on with a low profile.
The Technica Monaco Shearling Moon Boot have become a staple and the compliments received have been in large numbers. It’s crazy. All because of a spontaneous buy of a sales item that dievca wasn’t sure about keeping:
If you are interested in a pair, they have them at MyTheresa, just click here. But, dievca hates to tell you…they are full price. ($214)

dievca remembers her Dad getting a “to go” coffee at various restaurants and they came in a paper cup with greek designs on it.
The “Anthora” paper cup designed in 1963, features Greek motifs and two shields on which are written “WE ARE HAPPY TO SERVE YOU”. Millions of these cups had fed the caffeine addictions of New Yorkers during all those years. The sheer number of them coupled with their forty-year history has given the cup icon status along with the yellow taxis and the Statue of Liberty.
We weren’t in NYC, but apparently the coffee cups could be found west of I-95…
Here is a great piece about the design of the cup when the designer, Leslie Buck, passed away in 2010.
In the photo above, dievca held her ceramic version of the Anthora cup up against a rainy backdrop on Sunday morning. The temperature dropped from 46 F (7.78 C) to 12 F (-11 C) this Monday morning and then lower. Welcome to New York City weather.
- They stack well.
- The cups fit into your hand comfortably.
- It can be washed in the dishwasher (No, dievca’s dishwasher hasn’t been replaced, yet.)
- They are microwave safe for reheating your coffee.
- It’s been about 10 years for dievca’s cups and they are holding up well.

We (the Royal We) are happy to serve you — XO
A side note:
The paper version of the Anthora cup had sales top out at 500 million cups in 1994. Twelve years later, it was discontinued as a stock item as popular coffee-house franchises began replacing diners as the take-out morning stop for coffee lovers.
Due to numerous requests from restaurant owners and distributors, Dart Container is bringing back the Anthora cup in 8 oz. and 10 oz. sizes in New York City and some northeastern states.
A current description is : A moderate to minimal coverage European panty silhouette with back coverage that is more than a thong but narrower than a bikini. Tangas are a comfortable way to transition from a bikini to a thong.
The main difference between Tanga and Cheeky underwear is the amount of coverage you get. Tangas tend to be more revealing at the back while Cheeky cuts are more covered up.
The Oxford dictionary definition is, “A pair of briefs consisting of small panels connected by strings at the sides.”.
OK, that can differ from string bikini panties by the amount of coverage in the back. Right?
Add Brazilian Panties to the mix:
The Brazilian cut panty name refers to how the back of the panty looks, while the front can be any style. The most common way to describe a Brazilian panty is that it is wider in the back than a thong, but much less coverage than a regular bikini cut.
Consider that the word “tanga” in Spanish means “thong”….
With that…there is chaos….
dievca sees confusion with all the descriptions — just go with the style that your Sir or Madam prefers. XO
dievca is feeling a little bit blue and eating comfort food. Which….makes her a little bit chubby. Another way for dievca to perk up is with color, so she is hoping that something from Anya Hindmarch will splash the blues away~
