“Walking on high heels, soaking up life”

Kim and Kanye, who?

Kim and Kanye who?

The Aragonese Castle, nestled in a volcanic rock on the outer point of the island of Ischia has seen a lot in its history, but 200 party people from Brazil must definitely be a first. The medieval castle (casted as a wedding location for Kim and Kanye) was the magnificent setting for a beautiful couple to say “I do” and we rocked the ancient stones in a four-day-lasting-wedding-blast with pleasure.

Such a beautiful location to accidentally lose a heel on the steps pretending to be “you know who” and to get lost in the night mingling with the beautiful and fashionable crowd, all looking like they came straight out of an Dolce & Gabanna ad. Although of course I would never leave a Swarovsky crystallized Giuseppe Zanotti heel behind. Are you mad?

Cinderella would have been green with envy: this party didn’t stop at midnight, there was more than one Prince Charming, everyone looked Royal (Vogue Brazil didn’t cover the event for nothing) and our gorgeous friends Pedro & Tiele sparkled more than a 1000 glass slippers could ever do, sporting the most precious and priceless accessory of all time: LOVE.

Kim & Kanye who?
P.S.: Nobody turned into a pumpkin or mouse after celebrating as far as I now.

Today’s shoes are Giuseppe Zanotti

Summer, no Summer.

Summer, no Summer.

I stopped complaining about the weather situation in the Netherlands long ago, since you simply can’t change or influence weather conditions, and wasting energy is so not my thing. But when summer sandals, open toe heels and neat summery suedes start getting dusty in June for not being worn, you know for sure something is wrong. Not to mention that pantyhose and double layer pullovers are still a wardrobe staple. *sigh*

So let’s face it, its bad (not to say worst summer EVER) and it seems the only option to brighten a day is to put on some shiny leathers in the hope that some sun beam reflection will make its way to your face and give you some tan at least. (Carrying a full body sun reflector seems so 90ies after all). At least the “high profile sole” trend makes sense now, they make it so much easier jumping through water puddles and mud. Lucky you, if they do not come in white. Well, happy summer\nosummer everybody!

The laid back Cool

Yes, I saw it coming. I was warned (fashion signs!), I was alarmed, I was prepared. Or actually, I was so not prepared to be tip-toeing (still in heels) around this summer's hottest trend, the *deep sigh*: advanced flat (aka grown up and pimped orthopaedic shoe).

When Heidi Klum came up with her first edition of crystallized Birkenstocks back in the 90s I could still turn a blind eye hoping that the lapse of taste would be temporary. And certainly I tried not to be blinded (aka totally eye and heel insulted) when I spotted certain creatures sporting the persistent “Adilette”, which already found its way into fashion magazines last season. Brrrrrrrrrr!

But what to do when flatforms are praised from Elle to Vogue as the new cool and promoted so fashionably? *Deep sigh again*: you try of course, even though for a heelalista this means lowering standards quite literally. Tricked everybody though because far away from home (nobody knows me) and on a boat (no heels allowed) everybody just thought I was so “laid back”. Now you delete that picture of me in flats from your long-term memory forever. This never happened and will just stay between you and me, OK?

Summer Whites!

Summer Whites!

I stocked the shrunken jacket, undusted the wooden clogs, bought the denim (all of it) and the bohemian dress to fully step out in “must have” season gear this summer. Then again - and probably blame it on all the upcoming weddings this year - I unconsciously developed an utter crush on white (not only the staple white T: everything white! Tone in tone! Bring it on).

It’s a look which is always so geniously crisp and fresh on blogs & magazines but often in real life turns into fifty shades of grey (nothing sexy about that!) almost immediately, especially if you are a biking Amsterdam citizen. White shoes, the poor fellows suffer stains and always instantly lose the battle with cobblestones and I don't know how you do it, but I seriously considered wrapping them in plastic whenever wearing those treasures.

Can’t help it though and won’t stop trying - whenever there’s a love for a look there is a way to pull it off despite all of the adverse. I guess the dry cleaners around the corner and his mate (my shoemaker) will be my best buddies this summer.

On the road

I have been on the road for three days past weekend, supporting one of my favorite bands, the AdrianoBaTolba Orchestra. Eutin, our final destination might not be the sexiest place on earth (aka, it's in the middle of nowhere and you wonder if there is such thing as a fox and a hare to bid each other goodnight at all...), but it is THE place to be if you are working some Blues tunes.

And hell, they boys did! Above you find a little road map of all the destinations (four cities in three days, check!) and some favorite Rock 'n Roll heels that I packed. Despite I have to say: the only thing you really need, is a bunch of patches to cover your blisters from dancing and loads of stamina, because these guys not only can play: they can party like world champions as well.

Big X!

Feels like summer!

Feels like Summer!

Winter mood is always “nesting-bird” chic and definitely a comfort to someone suffering from fashion Tourette (new season, new colors, new outfit, new shoes, newnewnew). Muted colors, feathers and fur, PJ trousers and who cares if you hide your toes in Birkenstocks (socks still on) hibernating on the couch with loads of wine.

With the first rays of sun though, not only flowers are blooming but the fashion spirit awakens again, and after the annual panic attack (NEED TO WAX, NEED PEDI!) the desire to slip into open toes and sleeveless shirts reappears, ditching the winter coat for a very long time. YES!
Except that some of this years summer trends are quite winterly: rusty tones (70-ties), feathers on jackets (Burberry), shawls everywhere (Rock star attitude). Sorrynotsorry said all designers and I don't care either, as long as I can take the most appreciated accessory of mine everywhere: the SUN!

Will refuse that Birkenstock trend though which some idiot decided was hot in SS2015. Will save it for next winter (new season, new outfit, new shoes, newnewnew!!!!!!!!).
