Happy New Year!



The long weekend after the New Year was so peaceful and inviting to do nothing that I did exactly that. Polished my heels, ate the rest of my Mom's cookies, slept in, cleaned out the Champagne bottles and before I knew, duty was calling again, and 2016 had officially started.

What a bliss to look back at the old year and give a warm welcome to 356 new days, completely free to be designed in each of your favors.
I hope they will be filled with new ideas, inspiration, laughter, health and happiness - plus the odd new shoe - which will carry you to great new places and adventures.

Have a fabulous start into the new year Shoemonsters!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holiday!


Only one day left in good old 2014 and I find myself at the most gorgeous, yet coldest location ever. While jumping up and down in the park of Klessheim, Austria, I can’t help the thought that this very moment pretty much resembles the extremes of this year.

I’m not a big fan of quotes (unless they contain the words “high heels” or make me giggle (like “DON’T READ THE NEXT WORDS...... “oh - you little rebel I like you”.....), but if there’s something that I learned to be true, it’s that it’s worth to fight for your beliefs: no matter what. There will always be doubters, haters and non-believers but there will also always be YOU to prove them wrong. And YES, you can do it (even when you are freezing your toes off). And YES, keep your dreams as high as the heels that you are wearing.
What 2015 will bring? I have no idea, but I am excited to share it with you. Thank you for being part of all sore feet, blisters, highs- and lows measured in heels 2014.

Happy Holidays my dear shoelovers, I hope we will meet again in 2015!

Being back

Being Back


With Obama back to his duty (aka saving America), I am luckily able to switch back to my challenge as well: heels. And what could fit today's topic better than something else that keeps coming back (not talking legislation but fashion): the '80s. Maybe you are amongst those who SWORE never ever to go back and make the same fashion mistakes all over again (remember the perms, the shoulder pads, the legwarmers?), but HA: show me one gal (myself included) who hasn't worn leggings since then and didn't dream about that 2011 Balmain jacket with enormously exaggerated shoulders.

And now we have the pointed (white!) heel back in all shapes and variations. From Céline to Manolo and Jimmy Choo: there's a pair in almost every collection. Couldn't resist and had to try. Was astonished how well they work really, could wear them with almost everything in my closet (yes: the leggings too), and can't think of a single reason not to stock up on such a versatile item. Oh, besides that it's almost winter, which is bound to be wet and ugly and they'll never stay white for long.

Must confess am also tempted to get a perm again. And a boob job too, just to be able to say: Samantha Fox, watch out!


Today's shoes are H&M





Believe it or not, I didn't buy ANY heels in Germany due to too tight schedule (aka giving priority to meeting up with my real friends instead of the ones that come with a heel and end up in my closet). Accordingly, my hunger for some beautiful, exciting designs (aka possible new friends) is as huge as having been on a diet for too long. Very much Pavlov's dog, except I'm not drooling and fantasizing about chocolate, but feeling the usual tingle in my feet (read: heel fever).

Have no choice but must rush to my number one heel dealer Paul Warmer, the sugarfactory for those who are addicted to sweets (the leather version). And am so not disappointed. Here they all align: soft leathers (YSL!), shiny heels (Guiseppe Zanotti!), studded beauties (Balmain!) and OH MY DSQUARED2: almost D.I.E as I'm handed today's stunning pair by lovely PW crew (they certainly know what makes a girl happy!).
Aren't they just designed for a princess?

Am in heel heaven and must rush home immediately to tell prince (aka boyfriend) about it... it's my birthday in two days... might urgently add something to my wishlist.
