Fashion and nature divide the year in four wonderful seasons, each equally provided with its own charm, colors and signature looks. But - let's not lie about this- repeating itself over and over again. As surely as an amen at the end of a prayer there will be subtle grey and “new” black full body condom wrap for the end of the year, and that annoyingly hot, but super short sexy gear (you already know in winter you won’t fit in) for summer.

Now that you can hear the birds chirping in the morning on your way home from the club, and flowers are not only blooming in gardens but bursting out on dresses as well (the “new” floral... guilty as charged...) I guess it’s official.

Ready to catch my first ovarian inflammation due to ditching warm boots to replacing them with peep toes too early, finally really (!) buy that anti cellulite cream (see hot summer gear) and remove every single hair on legs which were gently covered in all shades of panty hoses for the past months.
And just when I was really getting in the mood I was reminded:
You definitely know it’s spring when all the fashion people are talking autumn winter already. Hmpf.

A Mouse. Seriously?

Having always thought I’m pulling of the cool chick quite decently, life taught me differently this weekend. Lost all my status of cool (and dignity) when discovering erg... well... a mouse in our house. Just after I bragged all about my “cat- heel” collection (I can assure you, none of them were of any help) I found myself -very classy indeed- on a chair, calling BF hysterically to rush home and protect me from the enormous and no doubt super dangerous beast.

I’d like to spare you the details, but the picture of me ON that chair, IN a corner, jumping in pure angst (yes, ON the chair), huge sharp yells coming out of the top of my lungs while BF heroically brushes out the actually very cute little fellow (too small to make a furry coat from, so she was spared) is something I will have to live with for the rest of my life. *ugh*

A mouse! Seriously? On a positive note: I am KING in high-heel-jumping obviously, but might very well wear (cat free) flats for a week. Someone needs to be punished. And be grounded.

That's their real name, and frankly....they were actually NOT.

There's nothing better than the idea that spring is just around the corner (well..... almost... OK), with the new season greeting you everywhere. I appreciate this to the max by diving into all the new arrivals that delight us with color, new textures and shapes. Almost died over Burberry's spring collection (bright metallics wherever you look), and in the event you should hear about a robbery on TV the upcoming days: that might have been me ensuring I have sufficient funds to afford that utterly beautiful bag. *sigh* Oh! And since I've become a (not very secret) stalker of Ruthie Davis' footwear, I'd totally invest that money in her heels too. In ALL of them actually.

If you prefer to act economically rather than be remote-controlled by pre-spring hormones (and still dive into fashion): I recommend watching Bill Cunningham's beautiful documentary "New York". A homage to fashion and glamour, spotted by the most humble man in fashion there is. Oldie (not you Bill!) but goodie!!! Or do as I do whenever I need to be cheered up on one of the hopefully last days of winter grey: a visit to favorite gallery - I could spend HOURS at Reflex in Amsterdam, glued to the work of Harland Miller (well, maybe robbing that bank wasn't such a bad idea after all), or visit my friend Melanie Brown's studio for a spring fashion splurge. If non of the above suits you: I bet flowers will. The tulips are out baby, bye bye January and hello new season!

Am freaked out today. Not because Marc Jacobs called to ask if I would consider being his muse, or because I got my first “sponsored heel job” (Yes! Really!). No, nothing like that. More like travel fever (symptoms include watching “24-hour kitchen” almost the whole night due to insomnia - counting heels doesn’t help).

Am very excited to go see my family tomorrow for the weekend (tons of birthday bashes to celebrate and four little nephews to cuddle), but there is so much to do before I leave (BESIDES the fun part of packing and selecting shoes and what to wear) that I literally can’t decide where to start.

Finish jobs first? Or shoot? Buy tons of presents (my family’s wish list is almost as long as the waiting list for Louboutins) or finish writing? Is cleaning up really necessary (ergh... am afraid yes). Cook “last supper” for boyfriend? Or rather jump into Agent Provocateur / sky highs to make up for no dinner and mess?
Aid (not only in the kitchen) is very much needed, so where the heel are my personal chef, assistant and maid? Sigh. Very obviously all on vacation as well.

Hahaha, so much for nomen est omen.
