“Walking on high heels, soaking up life”

When it comes to travel, none of todays (and yesterdays) great thinkers seem to run short on the perfect quote. You've probably read them all and I will spare you repeating the “It’s not the destination it’s the journey that counts” - of self proclaimed Facebook philosophers. Because what traveling most of the time really means is: VACATION! With a big “V” for Vanishing from routine and and an even bigger one for Vivacious Vagrancy!

The pareo is packed, the suitcase filled with sunnies, tank tops, bikinis and just that right hippie bag (which might fit the odd flip flop when tired of running on heels) and off I am for a road trip to France. Destination: gluttony Valhalla (another “V”!), ambition: just doing nothing for the next ten days (if lazily flipping through magazines, sipping rose in the sun, feasting on sea food and pretending to be a great guitar player at the pool counts as nothing). Paradise? Yes please!

But before leaving I have to get one thing off my chest: Why did none of the “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” thinkers ever mention the utter importance of proper footwear to begin with? No one wants to look like a jerk on something that important.Toedeledokie!

Fashion and “seasons” work in mysterious ways. While the hard core fashionistas are just now busy following Mamma Wintours footsteps streaming summer collections for next year, the average shopping gal must accustom to windows filled with pullovers and quilted trousers (not to forget this winters ultra heavy boots) while temperatures still scream mini skirt (well, sort of: as always the Netherlands might be an exception).

When new seasonal items hit fashion mag’s they have been shot half a year in advance (aka, aren’t they sooooo 6month ago?) and by the time I will have starved myself long enough to make that Dolce and Gabbana fairytale coat (a|w 2014) or that GORGEOUS fringed Brian Atwood boot (*sigh*) my own all snow of 2015 might have melted and I might consider a bikini wax again.

But have to admit it has its charm lounging somewhere warm, armed with the bible (read: Vogues Collection of the entire upcoming winter fashion) and getting all inspired what key items to stock for the cold days. Well, maybe my anticipation went a little too far though. Wearing woolen socks at 30degrees put my toes in kind of a pre-fall sweaty coma. Might have to buy that fringe boots to make up with them again.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE hanging in bed. And sleeping in. And watching movies cuddled in blankets (and socks on the odd occasion). What I do NOT like, is being forced to stay in bed because some boring, annoying bug decides to strike you down. Which is exactly what happened, well, last week (and NIGHTMARE: during the Emmies). All the Superfoods in the world (thank you Spirulina, I quit our friendship) didn’t prevent the ultimate physical meltdown (if I’m not in the mood to wear heels, I know it’s really serious).

Thankfully I have the best friends ever, always by my side, even when I’m a snotty mess, going nowhere, waiting patiently until the overdose of vitamins taken (or overdose of Vogue issues consumed) kicks in and I’m all ready to get goofy again. Glad to say that this way getting on the mend never takes long really, which is an utter blessing, so I can't overdosed on old Magnum episodes ever again.

Might take some time now until I’m recovering from the nightmares about 80's pointy-toe heels though. That, and calling Boyfriend "Higgens" continuously. So off againg (my excuses): have to dash to see the re-run of the Emmies.

Thank's to my friend Edwin I find myself caught in the Icebucket madness as well. As if there wouldn't be enough water from above in the Netherlands anyway but it's for a good cause, so all fine.

I'd like to nominate my favorite heel designers Brian Atwood, Ruthie Davies and Charlotte Olympia to join the challenge next, so I won't be the only idiot ruining a beloved pair of heels (Brian, you might go barefoot as well, I know suede leather loafers are a killer to clean!).

Please note that besides all selfish posting fun, donating is crucial to fight a terrible disease, so give as much as you can: your next pair of heel purchase can wait (a little). Here we go, and sorryyyyyyyyyyy shoes!!!!!!

When attending a festival - despite other opinions - it's clearly not the music and bands playing that require primary focus: it's definitely the decision which heels you'll bring. I've made the mistake of organising a sophisticated schedule of which band to see when and especially running there early to conquer the wave breaker many many times. But it’s the shoes really, which will carry you through mud, empty cans of beer and an over-enthusiastic crowd jostling.

Take into consideration that your heel of choice also needs to be Dixie-toilet proof, dripping mayonnaise (from your second portion of greasy fries) resistant and nonetheless attention screamers for winning over security sympathy. Because of course you'll try to sneak backstage without that all access pass, not once but at least three times. And who cares that you'll have to wear orthopedic devices for weeks afterwards if you have the chance to wake up (in heels still) next to some hot musician piece of ass? High Heels to Lowlands I say.

As it can be a little lonely on planet “DJ-wife” during weekends (boyfriend gone again to enchant some crowds in England), I thought I'd pull a little “Taylor Swift number” and invite BFF over to dress in PJ’s, giggle, throw pillows at each other, drink hot chocolate and call that a party.

With some recent boy trouble, swapped the milk thingy for Margaritas though and prepared the sky highs for a natural uplift (always works ladies!), playing a game of “How many Ellen von Unwerth inspired pictures can you take”, praying that none of the uncensored ones leak on Facebook that very same night ("Don't Margarita and post!").

24 hours, two pairs of ripped stockings, 15 squeezed lemons and a sleeping room still covered in feathers and confetti later, the guy is forgotten and replaced by a true and sincere love for dancing in high heels to Madonna tunes ...“Get Into The Groove.....”. Taylor would be so proud. Now off to write a song about that damn looser who ditched my lovely lady.

The frenzy of Amsterdam Fashion week is already two weeks behind us, but the memory of days of fashion fun is as vivid as if it were yesterday. Looking back I might do a few things differently next time: applying glitter to my eyelids with superglue - in an attempt to channel Chanel’s spring beauty look - on day two totally worked: a hefty eye infection made me look like a red-eyed bunny for the rest of the week. It's probably also a good idea to have an actual clue WHAT to say when invited to do an interview for a fashion channel (day three) instead of stuttering and mumbling some weird things into your Prosecco glass (it really looked like a microphone though).

Day one was probably the most uncomplicated: I was accompanied by two wonderful friends who art-directed and photographed my other two (furry) friends attending: Most.Amazing.Heels.Ever! In between twisting (“turn into the light, look up, to the left, OMG look at those structured heels”) I couldn’t help but laugh because both were so impressed with and flabbergasted by my shoes that I secretly wondered whether straight dudes might have a fashion gene too. Well: looking back at the pics they certainly have. Thank you Nico and Diederik for capturing a lovely day. Fendi crafts shoes up to size 42, and a black handbag suits everybody you know?

Just saying. :-)
