A new lease of life for tattoos
Etched into our skin for thousands of years, tattoos have become artistic as well as aesthetic. A phenomenon that has broken all the boundaries of fashion.
For a long time, tattoos conjured up the tribal images of ancient cultures and exotic peoples, with enormous symbols covering the arms, backs and torsos of Polynesian, Maori and Japanese people, for example. And rightly so: for centuries, tattoos represented a rite of passage, symbols of protection or a sign of belonging to a particular clan or tribe.
Until the trend took off again around 1990 to 2000. From the shower of tiny stars on the back of Rihanna’s neck to the giant words and patterns on David Beckham’s body, these permanent markings have become extremely fashionable. The Musée du Quai Branly in Paris hosted an exhibition on tattoos in 2015.
As a way to stand out from the crowd or express your personality, tattoos have become like a second skin. They can be proudly shown off, or reserved for only the most intimate views.

There is a lot going on in this Presentation. dievca imagines the look hides imperfections, yet offers an opportunity to play dressed or peel the onion-layers to find a gift. she’ll be digging through the closet to recreate something similar for Master.
Does anyone know who the Actress/Starlet is?
Our founder and creative director Dierdre Roffoni is a California native with an insatiable sense of wanderlust. It was on a trip to Formentera, Spain that she was inspired to create XÍRENA (pronounced SUH-REN-UH).
While every season features something new, XÍRENA is timeless, effortless, and to those in the know, easily recognizable by the iconic red bar tack.
The brand will continue to evolve, but the promise is always the same: we choose the softest fabrics in the most comfortable shapes.
We are Designed in LA and Made to Live In.
dievca has been on the search for a simple unlined full-cup bra. This Agent Provocateur “Lucky” Bra looks like a possibility – you can get it lined or unlined. The only problem is the bottoms don’t look super practical for larger bodies.
Underwear is a secret that a dievca shares with herself. It’s an identity she hides under her clothes, a part of her feminine mystique she keeps tucked away from the eyes of the general public. Perhaps she shares it with a partner~ perhaps not.
A lady’s choice of panties has a lot to do with her style. You might be able to guess what kind of underwear she’s got on under a pencil skirt or maxi dress. Maybe she isn’t wearing anything at all?
What a woman chooses to don under her outer garments also says a lot about her personality. Whether she prefers comfort to sexy or cotton to lace, every girl’s panty preference gives a lot of insight into the woman she is.
Whether she’s a go-getter or a laid-back kind of woman, you can bet her panties reflect her personal mantras as well as her aspirations.
So, what does your underwear choice say about your personality?
You’re a sporty girl with a great butt. Nothing looks quite as adorable as a pair of ass cheeks hanging out the back of a pair of flirty boy shorts. You’re the kind of girl who dresses for herself and your style is easy-going and free.
You’re the kind of woman people depend on, one who can lead a group with comfort and ease. You’re innovative and charismatic, but you’re also very social and friendly.
You’re a go-getter and a hard worker. You put comfort first so you can always be on your game. You don’t have time to waste buying expensive, frilly panties when you have so much on your plate.
You are a bad bitch! There’s no argument about it. A thong is the staple of the Alpha Female, the leader of the pack. You take no sh*t from anyone.
You might be a little (read: a lot) intimidating; no one will argue you’re anything but fierce.
You’re the one your friends look to when making plans and you’re the one they go to when seeking guidance. You’re sexy as hell and definitely a man-eater.
You hold your own in every relationship and are never afraid to speak your mind.
You’re into clean lines, but also staying super comfy throughout your exhausting 9-5 workday. You’d much rather be snuggled up with a marathon of “GoT” than have to slave away over a report for your boss.
Sometimes people call you lazy, but it just isn’t the case. You’re just super chill and would rather spend your time doing you than doing mindless bullsh*t for The Man.
You want to be dancing at music festivals, not dancing around office gossip. You don’t have time or patience for other people’s sh*t.
Your dream life would consist of lying on a beach somewhere, catching rays with a gorgeous man, sipping cocktails from coconuts and washing your worries away in the ocean. You were made for the island life, not life chained to a desk.
You’re the ultimate free spirit, and you own it.
There are two things about you that make you likable and awesome: First, you like to be comfortable and you give zero f*cks about what anyone thinks about your underwear choices, and secondly, you’re definitely quirky and you’re cool with it.
Incidentally, your ginormous underwear choice also likely means you aren’t getting laid often. (Sorry.) It also indicates you aren’t one for skinny jeans or mini skirts.
You’re a woman who prefers a date with Netflix over a date with a man, and knows the only person you’ve got to answer to is yourself.
You are a hot mama and aren’t afraid to show it. You’re a sexually-free woman who marches to the beat of her own drum.
You enjoy the company of men more than you do women, having always found more comfort in the male species as guys make you feel at ease. I guess there’s just something about catty women that’s always repelled you.
You’re the life of the party — never afraid of the last shot or taking on a bet from one of your friends. You have problems with limits because you never want to stop having fun.
You’re a laidback girl with everything on her mind but settling down. Your brain is on your next big project or your impeding promotion.
You’re quiet and shy, but not meek. You like to keep to yourself because you know it’s the best way to get sh*t done.
You aren’t running around, desperate for new friends. You’re loyal to a fault and always have your BFFs back when she needs you.
You keep your close friends close and couldn’t care less if you’re the belle of the ball or with everyone else.
Did you know going commando is actually really, really good for your health? Your vagina will thank you and we all know if your vagina is happy, you’re happy.
You’re an easy-going girl who doesn’t have time to f*ck with something as arbitrary as underwear. Why would you want to make extra laundry when you can forgo the laundromat by skipping out on panties?
You’re a problem-solver who’d rather spend her time enjoying the sunshine than sitting inside folding her clothes.
You live life with so much passion, and you find the endless beauty in every single thing. People admire your positive energy.
Girls want to be you, and guys want to be with you. You’re genuine, and it shines through and through.
So, which pair speaks to you or your Dominant?

The best part of being a backend is there is no backend at the back end of the backend. ~ Anup
In the computer world, the “backend” refers to any part of a website or software program that users do not see. It contrasts with the frontend, which refers to a program’s or website’s user interface. In programming terminology, the backend is the “data access layer,” while the frontend is the “presentation layer.”

Something fun for Presenting in Spring!
Is that an oxymoron?
Where can dievca find shapewear this elegant in fun colors?
The Quest has begun!
Definition of cincher
: a tight woman’s undergarment that is worn to shape and compress the waist // a waist cincher
The hand-span waists so beloved by Dior were achieved by foundation garments, of which the most popular was the waist cincher. Called the “waspie” or “guepiere”, it became the quintessential undergarment of the “New Look”. Boned and back-laced, it differed from the Victorian corset of decades past primarily in its length, usually only 6 to 7 inches. Fashion magazines of the time stressed that it was “super-light weight” and contained “feather boning”. Such garments were worn tightly cinched at the waist, usually over a girdle. The combination was described by Anne Fogarty, an American dress designer who popularized the “New Look” in the US: “To maintain your figure at its flattering best, depend on foundation garments to control and distribute; a cinch or tight belt to restrain.”

about Jill Biden’s tights…and dievca immediately thought “Rock It, Lady”!
The First Lady is 69-years-old and giving her personal fashion a go – its right up there with the octogenarian NY-ers dievca loves seeing – they are killing it with their leopard tights.
dievca wants to be bold in her aging and Master loves stockings. Akira Chicago was offering really fun fishnet tights to help her process.
Uhh, apparently the Akira tights are sold out. Here is another pair from ASOS by Ann Summers.

How does clothing promote wellness? That is the central consideration of KES new mini collection of organically-dyed silk garments.
In addition to being luxuriously soft, natural silks boost our health and beauty by relieving irritation, reducing allergens, and keeping moisture close to the skin to create an effortless, youthful glow.
Similarly, organic dyes are historically thought to have healing properties that enhance our overall well-being. Natural dyes are anti-microbial, non-toxic, and non-allergenic. They also offer skin moisturizing, anti-aging, and UV-protective properties.
For centuries, organic dyes have been used to imbue garments with rich, earthy hues. These natural tones are an essential element of our collective ecological and cultural history. Because of their natural derivation, organic dyes are inherently pleasing to the eye, complement every skin tone, and evoke within us a deep connection to the earth.
Something to keep yourself and your Sir/ Madame healthy~
Else is a very simple lingerie brand to wear.

A B movie or B film is a low-budget commercial motion picture that is not an arthouse film. In its original usage, during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the term more precisely identified films intended for distribution as the less-publicized bottom half of a double feature (akin to B-sides for recorded music).
Mari Blanchard, was an American actress, known for her roles as a B movie femme fatale in American films of the 1950s and early 1960s. In the late 1940s, Blanchard was a successful print model and film extra. Blanchard began appearing in films after she was seen by a producer in an advertisement for bubble bath in 1950.
Blanchard soon found success as an actress. From 1951 to 1952, she took small roles in a number of films at MGM, RKO, and Paramount, until she was signed by Universal-International in 1952. Her first film at the studio was Back at the Front (1952). One of her most memorable roles was the Venusian queen, Allura, in the 1953 comedy Abbott and Costello Go to Mars. She starred in Destry (1954), a western with Audie Murphy. In 1955, she starred in “Escape From Fear”, an episode of the television series Climax! Her hottest and most glamorous film was The She-Devil in 1957.
In the 1960–1961 television season, Blanchard starred as Kathy O’Hara in the NBC Western series Klondike with Ralph Taeger, James Coburn, and Joi Lansing. She also appeared as Margarita Colinas with Cesar Romero in the Rawhide episode “Incident of the Stalking Death”. In 1963 she had a small but flamboyant role in the John Wayne film, McLintock!
After abandoning her film career upon the release of her final film, McLintock! in 1963, Blanchard retired, acting in just a few TV programs afterward. She was diagnosed with cancer in the 1960s. Following a long struggle, she died at the age of 43.

– Carine Gilson
Carine Gilson’s story harks back to the 1990s. A freshly-minted graduate of Antwerp’s prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where she studied fashion, Carine Gilson discovered Maille France, a small Brussels atelier that manufactured fine ladies’ underslips. She immediately fell in love with the world of lingerie.
Carine Gilson decided to acquire the workshop and, with sheer dedication, set out to work on silk, lace, and exceptional materials. In the fashion of the boundlessly creative and refined lingerie creations of yore, Carine Gilson embraced this new adventure, taking her passion to the next level to create unique, breathtaking pieces in her Brussels atelier.
The designer soon launched her couture lingerie line, Carine Gilson, a synonym for a world filled with incomparable beauty.
In no time, the press and finer stores from Japan, England, Italy, and America came calling. Buyers from renowned stores recognized the rare quality of these creations, which conjure the bygone enchantment of times past within our changed, modern world.
The prestige of Carine Gilson’s lingerie has grown quickly thanks to the unwavering excellence of her creations. In the House of Carine Gilson, every piece is lovingly crafted by hand. Perfection and finesse espouse rigor and passion. Lace incrustation is raised to an art form.
I think all women have a certain elegance
which is destroyed
when they take off their clothes.
Whatever you write about me,
don’t make it sad.
At the moment, dievca is feeling more positive about her back rather than the front.
Bordelle lingerie might help highlight the area!
