Cheeseburger in Paradise 🍔

Master will be rolling His eyes this morning – but Presenting would be a good bit of fun as a Cheeseburger with Jimmy Buffet in the background.

Eat a little Meat…a sensual treat!


Jimmy Buffet would roll through dievca’s hometown every summer and it was an easy concert to get to ~ ~ outdoor seating and cheesy fun. 🧀

Holy Cats Batman!  It appears that Jimmy Buffet is still performing!  A full Summer Roster of Concerts!

Go, Jimmy, Go!

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french-fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Well, good God almighty which way do I steer?


Get your Fruit & Veg

Transparent Pineapple and Avocado Bodysuits from DH Gate.

(other options include seashells, Conch shells, watermelon and roses)

PS. YES, YES, YES – Avocado is a Fruit, not a Vegetable, but it does have healthy unsaturated fat and isn’t sweet…


Zippered front – is that cheating?

Wearing a corset can be a challenge…as dievca well knows.

At first, Master’s dievca had to learn how to put on the corset – Master had to step in to help on a few occasions.  Years later dievca became too chubby for some of her corsets – something about her waist changing with perimenopause.  The hook and eyes with the steel whale bones have been a challenge – so when dievca saw this corset with a zipper…

Hmm~

Might be an asset to her lingerie closet.

Tanga vs Cheeky

Cheeky

Tanga Briefs

Tanga briefs are a type of thong underwear that cover both your front and back with triangular pieces of material. They provide moderate to minimal rear coverage between a bikini cut and a thong and also have wider sides. They can be a good way to transition from a traditional bikini panty to a thong.

Cheeky Underwear

Cheeky underwear are true to their name and enhance your derriere by exposing the better part of it. They have less coverage than bikinis but more than thongs or G-strings. The front and waist portion are mostly covered.

Garter, Garter Belt, Garter Skirt

Initionally, Garters were use to hold up hose or socks.  The advent of elastic dimished the usage of Garters in real life, but you still see limited usage at Weddings. Why?

gartertoss

Traditionally, the witnesses would accompany a newly wed couple to the bridal chambers to ensure consummation. The wedding garter being retrieved from the bride served as proof to other guests that the deed was done, and the garter was then tossed into the sea of people.

Symbolically, the garter was thought to influence fertility. It also symbolized marriage consummation and future children for the couple. Because of this, the garter was fiercely sought after at weddings. It was an honor to detach the garter from the bride and was believed that the luck of the wedding couple would pass on to the guest who obtained the garter.

Garter Belts (or Suspender Belts): a belt with attached garters or fasteners, worn as an undergarment to hold up stockings.

Lovesick Garterbelt

Which brings us to the newer term-

Garter Skirt: (a dievca and Master favorite) A wider garter belt acting as a short skirt or mini skrt which can attach stockings.  Allows for bottom coverage with easy access – a flattering, sassy way to Present.

Who’s wearing Red? We all should be~

For Chinese New Year, beyond the buying of new clothes, giving of red envelopes and eating a lot with your family and friends, there’s the more contemporary tradition of wearing red underwear.

Men in particular – red underwear is one of the most popular gifts for sweethearts to exchange around Chinese New Year. Every winter, red underwear decorated with gold embroidery, usually illustrating the pertinent zodiac animal for that particular year, goes on sale in China’s stores.

Who Should Be Wearing Red?
The Chinese Zodiac employs a cycle of 12. There are 12 animals in the zodiac and each year welcomes a new animal. The cycle goes like this: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. People are born under one sign and will run into their sign again every 12 years. So it’s important to be aware of your benming nian (本命年), or the meeting of one’s zodiac year.

Why Do They Need To Wear Red?
One would think that your animal year would be a good one. But, Chinese traditional belief is that your benming nian (your animal year) is going to be full of bad luck. So if it’s your year, you need to take a few precautions to ensure that your year is not a bad one.

To ward off any dangers that might befall you it’s believed that it helps to wear the color red. Red is one of the luckiest colors in Chinese traditions, standing for loyalty, success and happiness. You see red all over the place during traditional Chinese festivals: red lanterns, red envelopes, red paper hangings ornammented in gold.

Why Do We Need To Wear Red?
If you believe in this stuff and you’re really traditional, you should wear red every day, all year long. How do you ward off the bad luck but maintain your own sense of style? Red underwear is the answer!

Red underwear is an easy way to protect yourself against the hazards of benming nian and the regular hazards of Life!

2022- What dievca is wearing for Master today.
Its snowing and will be the start of the Nor’easter,
so dievca needs something to go under the snowpants, again…
The difference is we are having soup and sandwich rather than crepes.

The New Comfort: Who does it best? (Chantelle, Knix, EBY)

Back in the Day (November 17, 2013 to be exact) dievca found Lingerie Comfort with Hanky Panky – In the 8 years since – the rubber has pulled out of the lace, there are holes and many pieces of dievca’s Hanky Panky have been retired.  she hasn’t bought anymore and she’s glad that she didn’t because she’s moved on to a set of Chantelle SoftStretch in Leopard Print ($54/$20):

20211123_130603

A new level of comfort has been found!
A new “go to” brand for the 3 C’s: Color, Comfort and Curves!

That said, dievca bought three additional sets of comfort underwear- one from Chantelle in Forest Green ($58/$20), one from EBY (Empowered By You – a “do good” business) – in Blue Meadow ($48/$22)  and a final set from the Canadian Brand “Knix” LuxeLift in an Anna Sui collaboration pattern ModFloral ($50/$25):

20211123_130449

Here’s the ranking:

  1. CHANTELLE – The SuperSoft fabric is….super soft, yet the bra’s hold up the girls well.  The bra padding is not removable, but it isn’t too overwhelming either – no strange shapes.  The fabric is very smooth and very comfortable.
  2. KNIX – The knix set starts out awkward to put on, but then molds nicely to the body. dievca wore the set with the removable bra pads inserted, she’ll try the top without them next time.  The bra pads looked fine, they did add a little bit of extra when dievca does not need it. There were a couple of seamed rubbing “hotspots” that disappeared as the day went on.
  3. EBY – The EBY set was easy to put on, but the cut of the bra armholes is high.  That is where the seams on the sides of the bra rubbed dievca, all day – she had to keep adjusting the irritation point. Was it horrible? No – just there.  Maybe it will disappear with washing.  The bra cups are removable and in dievca’s case not necessary – but they didn’t look strange. she will try wihtout the pads on the next round – maybe that will stop the rubbing.  The bottoms were very comfortable.

Conclustion – all three (four sets) are nice, but the little bit extra you pay for the CHANTELLE set(s) is worth it.

Master appreciates corsets and stockings, but once in awhile things need to be changed up. Using the Tanga Panties above as inspiration – dievca pulled out her Simone Pérèle lingerie which works well with her curves. Her offering just happened to be orange in honor of Halloween! No stockings, as it was too warm – but it made a lovely offering of her a**.


Going Bananas 🍌 It started with Josephine

Josephine Baker Glamour

Fleur du Mal may have us Going Bananas with their Limited Edition lingerie, but it may have started with the lovely and talented Josephine Baker.

On June 3, 1906, Josephine Baker was born Freda Josephine McDonald in the slums of St. Louis. Growing up, she cleaned houses and babysat for the wealthy. At the age of 15, Baker was recruited for the St. Louis Chorus vaudeville show; from there, she went to Harlem where she performed in musicals. Eventually, she landed a gig in France as part of an all-black revue, at a salary of $1,000 a month; she emigrated in 1925.

It was the summer of 1926 at the Folies Bergère in Paris. Hordes of white Parisians flocked to the famed theater to see La Revue Nègre, a musical show that emerged from France due to the country’s fascination with jazz culture. And there, wearing little more than strings of pearls, wrist cuffs, and a skirt made of 16 rubber bananas, Josephine Baker descended from a palm tree onstage, and began to dance. This dance—the danse sauvage—is what established her as the biggest black female star in the world.

During World War II, Baker aided the French Resistance by smuggling secret messages in invisible ink on her musical sheets. She hid Jewish refugees and weapons in her château that Bakerskin (her line of skin darkening and hair slicking products) had helped pay for. In 1963, she was, notably, the only official female speaker to give an address at the March on Washington. She received the Croix de Guerre, the Médaille de la Résistance, and Légion d’Honneur. After she died on April 12, 1975, more than 20,000 people crowded the streets of Paris to watch the funeral procession on its way to L’Église de la Madeleine. The French government honored her with a 21-gun salute, making Josephine Baker the first American woman buried in France with full military honors.

In August 2021, it was announced that Josephine Baker is set to become the first Black woman to have her remains reburied in the Panthéon monument in Paris — one of the highest honors in France. French president Emmanuel Macron made the announcement writing that Baker “held high the motto of the French Republic.”

“World-renowned music hall artist, committed to the Resistance, tireless anti-racist activist, she was involved in all the fights that bring together citizens of good will, in France and around the world,” the palace wrote.
She will be honored at the monument on November 30.

Fashion-wise – offstage, Josephine’s style was developed by Paul Poiret and Madeleine Vionnet, two of the leading couturiers in the ’20s. Her alluring choices have been seen more recent when Beyoncé paid homage to Baker by wearing a banana skirt in her 2006 Fashion Rocks performance. Miley Cyrus following in 2014.

Banana SkirtAt the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards, when Rihanna wore a sheer Baker-inspired dress. The Spring 2011 Prada collection and the 2016 Marc Jacobs’s Fall runway notably referenced Baker’s signature gelled hair.

Or, perhaps, Charlotte Olympia’s Banana Pumps are enough quirk to honor Josephine!

Tattoo You – Aubade Paris

ta_box_1

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.

  • Leopard Print throw to lounge on

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?


A West Coast Brand of Cool – XiRENA

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.


Feelin’ Lucky with Agent Provocateur


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.


Panty Personalities

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?

ladies-red-seamless-boyshortsBoy Shorts
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.

MARIEYAT---BEX-THONG-20160317190507Thong
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.

Jockey no panty line bikini Women'sBikini
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.

Granny PantiesGranny Panties
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.

G stringG-String
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.

Dickie's Girl BoyshortsBoxer Briefs
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.

CommandoCommando
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 ~

The best part of being a backend is there is no backend at the back end of the backend. ~ Anup

maison-close-nylon-stockings-608966-2_1800x1800

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.”
