Am totally obsessed when it comes to Christmas decorations. Everything needs to be sparkling and perfect, and "more" is definitely "less" as far as I'm concerned. Choose white every year as the snow situation is always a bit uncertain in A'dam, and this sets the "wintery" tone best (yeah: I tried gold and stuff as well: didn't work).

My attempts to reproduce snow though are sad and numerous. Tried plain flower once, which was wonderful (looked so real!) until I caught a cold and continuously sneezed the decoration everywhere but where it was meant to stay. The same happened with silver dust, which I still find in my orchids and my heels (which found their way to the living room as shoe-chamber is overbooked). My clever attempt to glue almost 100 cotton pads on the window to reproduce idea of falling snowflakes was so much work that I didn't remove them until late summer, and the snow spray I finally used last year (frosted effect: loved it): well, had to bring couch sheets to dry cleaner twice after almost ruined washing machine with that damn sticky stuff.

See: I need REAL snowflakes for my Christmas decorations this year, even more so as my heel outfit (thank you Daniele Dentici), is so utterly beautiful Christmas-tree-ish. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Will ya, please?

Breakfast at D.Dentici

Some people could have a horse for breakfast, some just a smoothie and a vitamine pill, others have no breakfast at all, and me.... well take an educated guess.
On my way to work I bump into the longest queue I've ever seen, and no, it's not a shoe-sale. People are standing in line for the opening of Abercrombie & Fitch. Fair enough: they did advertise the event for a week with half naked six packs (not talking beer) in front of their door. But now I can hardly find MY door to work, so have to make a small U-turn to marvel at something which I (personally) find so much more interesting than some overtrained tummies.

While everybody is waiting in the cold (UGG and Converse spotted everywhere - I would so fit in - NOT) to get their hands on some average US sweaters, am having a party (aka breakfast) at Daniele Dentici with the most original (lovely!) heels inside. Guess it's obvious by now: am having cognac for breakfast. Only question remaining: the cognac boots, the cognac booties or the cognac bag??? Decisions Decisions.

Today's shoes are Ritaeliseo.

Available at Daniele Dentici: not only for breakfast.
