A Parisienne of South African heritage, Annelise Michelson founded her eponymous brand in 2012, immediately positioning herself as a free spirit in the highly codified world of high-end jewelry. Couture-esque, her collections are at once glamorous and sculptural… An artist first and foremost, she sees her pieces like talismans, loaded with beauty and channeling strength and self-confidence. Her jewels aren’t just ‘accessories’, they are designed to dress the wearer, placing design and inspired volumes firmly in the spotlight. From the very beginning, Annelise’s bold vision resonated with many including the likes of Rihanna, Juliette Binoche, Zoe Kravitz, Robin Wright, and Leandra Cohen, allowing the house to blossom quickly. Constantly evolving and growing, today Annelise Michelson counts more than ten collections to its name including the evocatively titled Drapée, Déchaînée, Wire and Vertigo capsules.

Sitting at home.
Time to slip away,
To your Sir or Madam.
Don’t forget the healthy aftercare
Contemporary and classic all at once, the CAGE BRA has additional straps that form a pattern resembling a cage, either in the front or back or both sides.. It looks fantastic on any size bust because it appears to give ample support to any cup size. Caged bras look awesome on goth girls, bondage mistresses, and fans of Fifty Shades of Grey. Conversely, those who prefer a more traditionally feminine style can rock a caged bra when they fancy flaunting an edgy look.
Despite its name, wearing a cage bra doesn’t mean you’re locking up your bust. The cage bra gets its name from multiple straps that spread above or below the cups for an elegant look. Coverage: Cage bras vary in coverage, but usually they favor showing off your curves and sexy cleavage rather than full coverage.
Elegant Floral Lace Harness Cage Bra Lingerie piece. This is a stretchy designer harness top that will compliment your black, color, or nude bra or wear alone with pasties or topless depending on how much of a bold statement you’re looking for at an affordable price! It is one size fits most.
PS. Something to wear for the next Super Floral Moon appearance!
People always talk about Trust in a BDSM relationship.
If it works well, the embarrassment factor of any activity disappears.
Your Sir or Madam has seen or will see all realms of awkwardness if you are adventurous.
Sexually or just within the Power Exchange.
The good news is with Trust you will look at your Dominant or submissive and think,
“Oh-Yes, I want to do that again!”
Bordelle around 2011 and 2012 offered these strappy pieces. dievca is feeling the need.
A bold statement of submission.
Do you remember being a kid with dirty glasses?
Then she smartened up in High School and started using dish soap to wash her eyeglasses.
Finding a sink and soap is not very convenient on the fly – so dievca moved on to lens wipes.
Too bad they aren’t environmentally friendly…
- one use
Something of use that lessens the environmental impact, isn’t as messy as soap/water, can be carried in a bag and offers the cleanest vision dievca has found:
Wal-Mart’s Equate Lens Cleaner at $2.88.
This brand is dievca’s favorite. The solution is good for glasses, camera lenses, phone screens/lenses, computer screens, etc. – all at an excellent price.
An 8 oz. bottle lasted dievca about a year with a clean rag/towel doing the wiping.
Argh – dievca is out~
dievca will have to make a trip to New Jersey to visit a Wal-Mart…there’s none in Manhattan.
Keep it simple and clean.
Sexy will shine through.

About Myla Lingerie
Myla London was born in the ’90s in Notting Hill. Based on craftsmanship and luxury, the brand built a loyal customer base. The brand was then reinvented and relaunched in August 2017 with the CEO (Garry Hogarth) COO (Leila Habibi) and the Senior Designer (Jess Thompson) from Agent Provocateur.
Myla has only been back in the market trading again since July 2018. We have had a fabulous reception for the new collection by both press and retail. We started trading again by joining Selfridges with an exclusive retail launch in the UK. In the USA we partnered with Bergdorf Goodman. On-line, we joined with Net a Porter and launched our own website in October 2018. We also opened our stunning flagship store in Brook Street, London which is available for personal fittings. Since our launch last year, we have continued our growth and are to building exciting new relationships with Harrods, Far Fetch, Neiman Marcus, Matches and KaDeWe.
Mlouye’s founder and creative director Meb Rure hails from an industrial design background. In 2015, Meb decided to change gears and turn her energy towards Mlouye, a collection of exceptional handbags. Focusing on quality material, good design, craftsmanship and sustainability, Mlouye reflects the epitome of quality over quantity.
Meb was highly inspired by the Bauhaus Movement’s artists and architects. From Mies van der Rohe’s works to Kandinsky’s paintings, to Aalto’s furniture, she acquired a rationalist vision of design by gleaning how they served a utilitarian purpose in a cleverly simple way. Mlouye merges industrial design and fashion, creating functional handbags made of luxurious and honest materials to improve people’s lives in small but important ways.
Innovation being the key factor alongside aesthetic, Mlouye has brought unexpected shapes with smart details, functionality and a new luxury feel with a contemporary price point.
Istanbul is where Mlouye was born, the company’s headquarters is now split between the US, the UK and Turkey.
Vikki Dougan: Did she inspire the drawing of Jessica Rabbit?
Maybe….or maybe not…
Her back and lingerie might just inspire a Presentation Outfit:
dievca might just have to pull out the Agent Provocateur ‘Baroness” silk slip in Navy.
A Lock in BDSM:
- a tool used in bondage
- a symbol of a relationship between Dominant and submissive
- a subtle message of being owned
Skin peeking through mimics the stars peeking through space.
As dievca is pulling items out for a Christmas Dinner with friends, she realized that this
Crate & Barrel serving platter has been in her life for about 30 years. It’s a piece that has a lot of mileage on it and still looks lovely. The bonus is that the removable dip container can be refilled without moving the whole server and it cleans up easily.
Do you use or need something similar?
dievca was curious if Crate & Barrel still offered this item — No.
she saw it on resale sites (apparently others did not find it as useful or broke the dip holder…)
The closest items she found on the Crate & Barrel website and in stores are:
Dip piece is attached….no ease of refilling. Dishwasher safe, though.
Close, but that dip bowl will move around as people use it.
Lovely – but glass? dievca would break something within the next 30 years.
So, it looks like dievca will stay with her old favorite! 😉

David Samuel Menkes sounds like the gentleman to connect with for custom leather pieces. dievca offered a blog post which had photos using his work: BDSM in Haute Couture – Strict Magazine
If she ever becomes brave enough – she might stroll into his studio and ask if he can make a leather ‘Day Dress’ for her to wear presenting for Master.

DAVID SAMUEL MENKES
Interview by CYNTHIA ALTORISO
photography by DAVID CARLO
CYNTHIA ALTORISO: I met David Samuel Menkes by serendipity. I had gone to his building to visit the atelier of a neighboring bespoke tailor on his floor. When I noticed the wonderful quilted leather and studded door, I stopped in my tracks. Beyond the door was a pleasant-faced, blue-eyed and nosed-ringed man, who invited me in. To step inside David’s studio was akin to visiting Ali Baba’s cave of treasures!
There was David, at his heroic wooden work table, covered with beautiful leathers and interesting findings and tools. Behind him were steps leading to an outdoor Victorian quadrangle encompassing a secret garden unique for its exotic specimens and random classical statuary. This was only the beginning…
Appreciating my joy for his aesthetic, David pointed out the ‘walking stick corner’ which held a vast collection of wondrous vintage walking sticks, many of which I have had the good fortune to borrow for shoots.
Close by, above the wardrobe is a collection of marvelous old hats and hat boxes. Next, we moved into his bedroom with its’s centrally positioned canopy bed, draped with fine old paisley shawls.
One wall was covered in shelves holding antique sewing implements. Another wall held a vast collection of classical music covers, the many spines proudly proclaiming impressive works. And then there are the 2 drawers full of the bone button collection, the pleasure of which is to run one’s hands through. And there are the charming vintage children’s chairs. There’s more, much more, and, after these many years of knowing David, it has become a custom for me to bring visitors to experience this creative field trip.
David’s skills are not limited to the demimonde. For a project I was doing with Amy Arbus, he made a Picasso clown suit, for a shoot with Alan Cumming he made a spy’s binocular case, and for a shoot with Ellen von Unwerth, he crafted a lovely muzzle. I also arranged for a custom-made leather jacket, with the Union Jack, for Zombie, Rod Argent. Too many to list here, David has made or lent me many cunning pieces and accessories…the random eyepatch, the leather corset, the riding crops, etc., etc.
David is an old school artisan lovingly plying his trade, making up one of New York’s living, creative treasures.
I call him ‘The Leather Master’.
David Samuel Menkes established Custom Leatherwear in 1980. After graduating from Carnegie-Mellon University/ BA Costume and Scenic Design, he arrived in NY with theater dreams but soon found the Leather Scene more interesting. Applying a certain theatrical flair allowed for a wide range of designs within a strict code of dress. Developing a specialty in leathercraft also brought Fashion and Theater projects, as well as crafting for Artists, Interior Designers, Performers, and private customers, with projects ranging from Dog Muzzles to covering a giant head of Stalin with a hood!
Sharing their BDSM leanings with the World in a useful manner. XO
Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. By extension, the word velvety means “smooth like velvet.” Velvet can be made from either synthetic or natural fibers.
Velour or velours is a plush, knitted fabric or textile similar to velvet or velveteen. It is usually made from cotton, but can also be made from synthetic materials such as polyester. Velour is used in a wide variety of applications, including clothing and upholstery.
Click on the photos for brands of the items:
PVC fetishism is closely related to rubber fetishism, with the former referring to shiny clothes made of the synthetic plastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and the latter referring to clothes made of rubber, which is generally thicker, less shiny, and more matte than latex. PVC is sometimes confused with the similarly shiny patent leather, which is also a fetish material. Latex or rubber fetishists sometimes refer to themselves as “rubberists“. Gay male rubberists tend to call themselves “rubbermen“.
Why latex or other tight shiny fabrics may be fetishized is perhaps that the garment forms a “second skin” that acts as a surrogate for the wearer’s own skin. Thus, wearers of skin-tight latex or PVC garments may be perceived by the viewer as being naked, or simply coated in a shiny substance like paint. Latex and PVC can also be polished to be shiny and can also be produced in bright colors, adding further visual stimulus to add to the physical sensations produced by the material.
The tightness of the garments may also be viewed as a kind of sexual bondage.
Some rubberists also enjoy the idea of exhibitionism and some fantasize about going out in public wearing fetish attire. Some do this, especially in the more liberal areas of the World.
A compelling reason that people are turned on by wearing rubber is its transformative abilities. As with any costume, a rubberist can imagine themselves having a new identity, especially one that permits a different code of behavior. (adapted from Wikipedia)
