Lady in red

Lady in red

It was my B-day lately, and after celebrating in Milan (friends, champagne, heels), and Amsterdam (more friends, more champagne, heels), I thought I'd take the party to Belgium as well (you can guess with whom, can’t you?).

My designer friend Kim Siderius provided me with the most lovely dress (so red, so beautiful that every red carpet would turn green with envy), and all other gear to celebrate was as grown-up as I certainly feel now. As in: confetti, balloons, a decent swing, and whipped cream still does the job after all those years. Oh well, not to forget the odd pair of High Heels as well.

So after all that dancing, laughing, celebrating and high heeling, I may have checked into Betty Ford by the time you read this (I wonder if they do courses for heel and fun addicts?). But I can certainly tell you: I had the time of my life. Now off she dances in that red dress, humming:

“Lady in red is still dancing with the, (gorgeous heels),
There’s nobody here, it’s just me and the Gucci's,
It’s where I want to be,
Don't make me go (-dramatic “Oooo”, ) -ending this does not feel right,
but I’ll never forget the way I felt tonight.”

Off we hop on a plane again, for a weekend of debauchery (as if we hadn’t any enough lately) in Milan, a pre-birthday gift of BF and a reunion with our lovely friends from Brazil (you met them earlier this year). The schedule is appropriately Jet-Set tight, the suitcase crammed with uncle Karl’s designs (to avoid dress-malfunction like the last time I saw our fashionable friends), the table at Ceresio7 (run by Dsquared) is booked and the champagne at the Armani Privé Club waiting for us.

No time to stroll the city for shopping really, although huge damage can be done in very little time, I’m an expert! When my friend Paola asked if I'd been to Corso Como though, I had to shake my head in denial ('Oh no you missed it all!').

My lovely friend! I had Pizza, I had Pasta, I had Prada, I had Champagne, I had my friends, I had THE MOST AMAZING TIME! What could count more?

Oh! And there is that fabulous pair of mink manufactured sandals that I befriended too and had to import. But that’s for another High Heel post and that story shall be told next time.

Move over Kate!

Kate Moss turned fourty this year, and so did boyfriend. Spent the last 31 days preparing surprise after surprise after surprise to make the big bang worth while (something like flying all guests to a private island... well...almost...). As we all know: turning fourty is something we like to forget rather than celebrate, so my task was mainly to make it as unforgettable as possible (he is a man after all.... show some guts!)

Due to all the celebration and preparation my brain got as steamy as my heels running from one fancy location to another and looking back everything appears in a big, lovely, happy blur now. Partying like a rock star is easier when you are 27: BUT! All the confetti bombs, the 24-hour party people, the unforgettable nights (plural: you didn’t think one party would be enough did you?) and was it us really pouring champagne in that bath tub of our four star hotel suite, and me in particular running around in lingerie (and VERY, VERY nice heels ladies!) covered in a big furry coat only?

Well, I say move over Kate, and HAPPY B-DAY boyfriend!

Boyfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway for my birthday and as I didn’t know where we were heading, I found myself in the car with 3 pairs of shoes (preparation is everything ladies) and 4 outfit changes, ready to rumble: the streets of Antwerp as it turned out.

It also turned out that brand-new yellow satin heels are not the best match for a city paved entirely with cobblestones, but since I had already rescued the 10 inch Charlotte Olympias (peeking out of my purse all day, guess they needed some fresh air anyway) and left the flats in the car (YES, I was vain), the options were limited. But hey! It was Belgium (Chocolate! Champagne!), and besides the lovely company of BF my new other yellow friends also turned heads.

This all happened before I was surprised with my first Chanel purchase EVER (which did not come in form of a compact powder or a nail polish scored at a mall counter), and also before I found myself - Chanel shopping bag and all, very lady like -leaning into a container to score some Svarovsky crystals from a dumped chandelier. But that’s another story for another day. Happy Happy!

Happy Birthday moi!

Once a year that day comes around, highly anticipated until you hit 29, after that swept under the carpet and glimpsed at warily, mixed feelings and all. The Birthday. Since I never really grew up and numbers only matter to me when it comes to Sunday’s Lotto Draw, I will celebrate getting older no matter what though.

Nothing big you know, Gianni will come out of the closet (aka Versace aka my dress), Coco is a staple on the guestlist (in form of Chanel make-up), BF will bring over Guns and Roses (or maybe Metallica - depends on which T-shirt mood he’s in), and am pretty sure at least one of my girlfriends will sneak in Mr. YSL (in form of a clutch).

Well then, I guess it’s not pretentious at all to make a wish for my special day, hoping that Karl somehow may show up as well. In form of the hottest booties out there this fall. Hello? One person with white hair at my party is pretty much enough.

Growing up in Salzburg and having had a music career of sorts, it was of course inevitable to study Mozart. Read all his scores (even that one of the Requiem which I sang in the choir). Loved playing the crazy guy: the lightness and naive child genius (he just shook things from his sleeve that would cause others artistic diarrhorea to compose) in his "Rock Star" work will remain unique in my mind forever (Oh, OK, today we have Justin Bieber....).

I also believe he never gave a damn about the way things were supposed to be done (something I always wanted to copy) and basically waltzed and farted his way through life (the former I actually DID copy) until his (unfortunately unlucky and early) end.

Today I find myself studying Mozart again. In cook-book-form that is. Promised "Schöner Mann" a real Austrian dinner for his birthday which, (shame on me!) was last February (guess "heeling" kept me too occupied). Oh damn! Forgot to buy Mozartkugeln. Sorry Amadeus. We will have your Sonata B-Dur KV 570 for desert instead.

Cooking and High-heel-ing

Jump out of bed, into heels and dash to the kitchen. With my sister's big day just a day away I'm preparing the pre-party (aka dinner with family), and couldn't be more excited. Pity boyfriend can't see me, 100% sure he would love the concept of "straight from bed to kitchen". The big grin on my face is caused by today's shoes though, which are such a cheer up (color) and perfect for the average "housewife"-duties (aka certainly not desperate).

In fact, they may also have inspired the choices for the menu: fried eggs for the kids, blinis with trout caviar for the adults, and my home-made pumpkin soup with smoked duck breast and thyme: pretty much everything seems to be orange today (except for the chilled champagne, that would be pink).

Phew, and am so ready for a glass of the latter: having juggled pots, pans and the "helping" hands of my nephews for hours, am feeling quite a pumpkin (aka mess) myself. The award for kitchen mess, plus worst mani, make-up and hair goes to... the cook as always. But definitely deserve platinum for multitasking and "plateau" for the most beautiful high heels. Cheers!
