“Walking on high heels, soaking up life”

Summer hasn’t even fully arrived yet (at least not in the Netherlands) and I have had way too little opportunity to wear all the lovely light summer hues, when the first magazines are already featuring pieces from upcoming Fall|Winter collections.

It’s always exciting to get a sneak peak of “what to wear” in a couple of months and which items to get your hands on now, and I couldn’t be more eager to soak up all the new inspiration.

Find myself wondering if designers’ vision for the upcoming season was “make you faint” though.
Genius Miuccia gives our eyes something to work on (wearing her sixties inspired collection is sure to make you dizzy, plus disappear completely in front of retro wallpapers (= great party escape)), providing us with clownesque lumpy cloggs, which will luckily save me some money (read: no buy, and “hate clowns”).
Adorable Marc instead must have bought the entire collection of “History of French Kings” on DVD: his drafts show both a dignified gravity and are reminiscent of Baroque.
Including the shoes: opulently embroidered, buckles and all.

Bring on the beauty mark, wig and white powder, am fully prepared to rock the Amadeus look. In case of no post tomorrow: might have tipped over while practicing Bourrée and Quadrille in my Louis XVI heels.

Today’s shoes are Vintage
