“I have stopped trying to figure you out…”

No, Master did not give up on His dievca – he just has accepted that His dievca reacts and does things differently than He expects when she is not in submissive mode. she is a completely different personality type than what Master normally hangs out with~

dievca pointed out that their underlying value structure and overall beliefs are the same – it’s just the day-to-day view of Life, ability to function and their conclusions after processing information is different.
dievca is a fox, Master is a hedgehog.

Makes for interesting conversations, activities and occasional irritations.

Along with having similar core values, both Master and dievca are well-traveled.  Master travels more heavily internationally, 5 of 7 Continents. dievca, 3 of 7 Continents – but she visits more States.

Having different travel habits, dievca is very spacial and can pack a suitcase masterfully. Master cannot recreate the packing that dievca does for Him, so they have learned that she needs to leave Him extra space for, uh, messy packing.

Master would never use a passport cover. dievca has used one since college and just retired it after 20+ years to pay homage of being a Fox….

As Master has given up on figuring dievca out – dievca has settled into knowing that her Master will always fascinate her with His responses (or non-responses) to certain issues in Life.

Both Master and dievca have decided to accept each other – as is.


chasing the blues (rain) away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Daddy wants to play
Rain, rain go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Mommy wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Brother wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Sister wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

Rain, Rain, go away
Come again another day
All the family wants to play
Rain, rain, go away

dievca’s DKNY brown shiny raincoat bit the dust…
Here’s her replacement to help beat the April Showers~


Pathetic

If you describe someone or something as pathetic, you mean that they make you feel impatient or angry, often because they are weak or not very good.

dievca is calling herself pathetic….not in the real sense. In the sense that she knows she is weak and she is laughing at herself.
Why?

The custom $400 sweatshirt…The sweatshirt itself is Atelier Notify and $110 — so the custom graphics (only a silk screen – not embroidery, mind you) is $300+.

That dievca is even thinking about this is bad…
Now you know why she calls herself pathetic

To resist the urge to buy — dievca is finishing off the last of her taxes, grocery shopping and visiting to three open houses on the UWS. Housing prices are going down and it might be time to buy~
Umm, the sweatshirt would be cheaper than buying a co-op. Co-op will last longer, hopefully. 😁

Have a lovely Sunday!


Useful in the City….Backpacks

EMMA GLOVER “NAKED” BACKPACKS @ LOADED MAGAZINE

It’s not elegant, it’s not “pretty” – but for a dievca with back issues and someone who bikes to work — it’s a necessity.
Have you ever biked with a Tote Bag on your shoulder? Brutal.

That said, dievca tries to mix it up with styles and colors. Some of her backpacks are selected for rainy days, some are just practical “go to” bags and some are the closest thing to elegant you can get in a backpack.

Yes, dievca has a lot of backpacks… but she sold or gave away many of her crossbody, shoulder bags and totes — she kept only the excellent basics and/or heartfelt memory bags. dievca did keep a number of evening bags / small bags that fit into her backpacks and will finish a outift properly.

dievca’s backpacks in current rotation:

Jack Gomme Lami Backapck

Note: a couple of backpacks dievca has shown in the past have bitten the dust – fallen apart, faded or got stained so badly…. she really uses this type of bag…something useful!

The only backpack dievca is lusting over at the moment is from the French brand Jack Gomme:
(she blew her $ on that Issey Miyake Bao Bao black backpack…totally worth it.)

Yes Master~ (lingerie)

“Our Truest Life Is When We Are In Dreams Awake “  ~ Henry David Thoreau

Yes Master SS 2016

Yes Master is a kind of anti-brand that abhors trends and whose iconoclastic designs often seem like a rebuke to the inherent conservatism of the fashion world. As a result it’s had an up-and-down history, veering from wacky cult label to adored tastemaker — sometimes in a single year.

It was a fluke that the Macedonian designer Igor Pacemski came into the fashion business. Trained as a scientist with a masters degree in chemistry, he was diverted by a part-time job in fashion retail. It led him to a buyer position at the London store Coco de Mer in 2002 where he fell in love with lingerie.

“Coco de Mer was at the forefront of this huge surge of interest in lingerie,” said Pacemski, who started his own label, Yes Master, for autumn/winter 2005/06. His first collection has hit the shelves of Henri Bendel in New York, Miss Lala’s Boudoir in London and Anna in Copenhagen. He admits that customers might come to him expecting a product that is “aggressive, S&M, even dark,” but most understand that the name is meant in jest.

It’s been mostly up for the past couple of years, though, thanks to YM’s introduction of swimwear to its catalogue and some very savvy collaborations with retail partners. Once known for its high-concept artsy themes, Yes Master today is more widely associated with its pop-art digital prints for youth-oriented retailers like ModCloth, Urban Outfitters and Topshop.


(Most pieces above offered at the FarFetch or Orchard Mile wesites, one from a past season)

Designer Igar Pacemski and listen to his vision of Intimates as a cultural and literary exploration into the Art of Lingerie.  The stories wrought by this  label are not immediately obvious. It takes some time to see the magic.  Each season is an evocative tableau that takes a woman on a journey to the “wrong side of good taste”.  Edgy, but with style and class, Yes Master is the quintessential British brand.

Master gets Lucky with Lucky Brand : BDSM-esque

It all started with taking care of Master…
His supply of t-shirts and basic underwear bit the dust, so dievca helped out when she saw some nice soft items in the Flat Iron Lucky Brand store (its closed now).

Lucky Brand Boxer Brief Grey

The location closure means that dievca keeps her eyes open on the website for deals ~
The first thing she ran into recently is: Masters Chukka Boots

Truly – Masters is the name. What’s in a name?

Then she bought these bondage / shibari inspired pillows: Basket Rope embroidery

This reminded dievca of items that made her smile which she didn’t buy for Master:

All on Sale~
