Above The Roofs Of Vienna

Above The Roofs Of Vienna


Since one of the highlights of my short trip has surely already happened (running through Vienna carrying three HUGE shopping bags filled with the most gorgeous heels: VERY Pretty Woman!), I thought it couldn't get any better when I was invited to fancy place "Le Loft" to show off the first pair of my lovely heel collaboration with Shoetation. Well, ladies, a heel (or today: wedge) needs to be walked, right? And what better place to show them off than the 18th floor of a 4 star hotel with a magnificent view of the lights of Vienna. So romantic!!!

This is the penthouse I always dreamed of having (staff members and full stocked bar included, please). Am pretty sure that my shoes (almost 366 pairs by now) would appreciate a 360 degree panoramic view too. Obviously I had to capture the moment, though I knew that with the subtle clinking of expensive crystal glasses, the discretely dimmed lighting and a bill that could easily buy me a new pair of heels, comes a no picture policy (aka contact PR person). Which of course my friend (incognito) and I also very subtly and discretely did...... not. My heels were just so worth it.


Today's shoes are Poletto
Like them? Get them!

Dinner for four

Dinner for four


My options for yesterday evening weren’t that bright:

Boyfriend was on a business trip to London, Schöner Mann didn’t call me back,
the only party scheduled was the one with the white hairs on my head, competing (and won!) with “L’Oréal Paris Excellent Creme Nr. 646.”

I could have ended up watching the whole ‘Twilight’ saga in a row, munching Pringles and feel pity for myself, if my friend Ton didn’t invite me over for
a drink, while he was preparing a dinner for four (not including me).

Ton is a man of calculation and perfection. If he is cooking for four, he probably counts the salvia leaves he is intending to scatter over his handmade pasta.
He will prepare the main course very precise (for four),
which will be served on his new table (fitting four) and (yes!) only four chairs,

so you will understand that I was feeling a little weird to crash the party.

I got over my doubts anyway and what had been planned as an intimate dinner for four, spontaneously turned into a “leg shooting party”, while the “lamb legs” took their excact 2,5 hours in the oven. We were all pretty wasted before the main course, sharing wine, laughter, camera, ideas, music, glasses, forks, plates, thoughts and in the very end the (*a*b*s*o*l*u*t*e*l*y) delicious food.
Turns out that sitting on a garbage bin (aka fifth chair) getting fed by friends with an extra spoon is actually the best thing to do on a Saturday night.

Will you please excuse me now, I have my very own hangover party to attend.

P.S.: Todays shoes are Lella Baldi
