Stars and Starlets

Stars and Starlets

Read more...

I love January for two reasons: It’s SALE everywhere and Hollywood’s Award Season officially opens:
the perfect excuse to never leave the house (except to score some cuties on SALE) 
and binge your way through all the nominated films.

Spent all night yesterday watching the globes with my buds “ZA” and “NOTTI”, 
had way too much popcorn and champagne and (of course) overslept mercilessly this morning,
but YESSS! - it was all worth it. Nothing better than dressing up at home for the occasion, treating yourself with a “glamicure”, having a blast judging Stars and Starlets, red carpet outfits, hair-do’s, and acceptance speeches from afar.

Sleep deprivation? So not Globes at all! 

No doubt though that (besides all the gossip: I so do not wanna have what Jacqueline Bisset was having, but definitely the Louboutin’s Emma Thompson dropped at her speech...) the true winners of yesterday night were my fabulous, FABULOUS shoes. *Voice dramatically sobbing*: 
“And I wanna thank Paul Warmer for their generosity, Guiseppe for always making my feet look pretty, and my patient boyfriend who snored through the night and couldn’t care less about the glitz and glam of a heelalista’s-world.
L.o.v.e. y.o.u. a.l.l.!!!!!!”

Today’s shoes are Guiseppe Zanotti.

Available (and on Sale) at Paul Warmer now.

Win Win

I don’t know about you ladies, but (even though have never won) I'm a sucker for seeking my fortune. It's not just Charlie Sheen who thinks “winning” is totally “now”, so a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. That twist-off cap promising you a fabulous trip to the Caribbean? Totally went to their website. That poll on any high-fashion-brand luring you to enter for a chance to win a seasonal outfit tip to toe? Check! Oh, and not to mention the numerous scratch-and-win tickets I love to collect, waiting for the right moment to scratch them open (BF thinks I’m crazy, but that’s another story and might very well been told another time...)

Never giving up though, it's all for a good cause. Just imagine how many good things you could do after hitting some jackpot! A whole new alphabet of opportunities would open its doors (from A (aka Altuzarra) over L (Loubies come to Mamma!) to Z (aka Zanotti - a staple in any heels wardrobe anyway).

But whatever method you might fancy to win that golden pot: try your luck adding a decent heel to your outfit you're at it. You'll remember that lucky pair forever. I'd say very win win indeed.

Happy Heel

Happy Heel

Read more...

Hello, my name is Beautiful. Or Gorgeous - whichever you prefer. At least that's the name I hear most often when people are looking at me. I'm from Italy where a 100 busy hands fumbled, hammered, and glued me together until I became what I am today. I liked that everyone was so dedicated to making me shine, until they tucked me *sigh* - *dark* - in a box and shipped me off to some sort of exhibition (aka fair *editors note).

Oh lord! 10.000 other beauties around me and at least 1.000 fingers pointing at me, touching me, and turning me upside down. Rude! Felt like a piece of meat, so not glamorous! Then again the box thingie, just to end up on an average rack somewhere else, with a price tag on my sole (ouch!). Am feeling lost and abandoned and cry out to everybody who comes along "PLEASE! Rescue me"!

Then one day this gal shows up. Takes one look at me and her eyes open wide, she becomes totally excited, must be love at first sight. She mumbles something like: I know you fit anyway, and *hurray* takes me home. Now am walked and marveled at almost every day, am teamed up with nice dresses, dancing on tables, and taken to fancy places where people smile a lot. Love my life! Happy Heel I am indeed.

4th Advent

4th Advent

Read more...

Presents are all wrapped (how I do this every year is a shear miracle to me), High Heels are packed (no clue how I manage to pack too many every year either), it's the 4th Advent and am totally ready to head home to reunite with family. Yaaaaay! Can't wait to throw on sparkling outfit tomorrow (who will shine brighter, Christmas tree or me?) and eagerly await what Santa had in mind to make me a happy gal. Well - with wishlist already featured for 3 Advents, believe he should have gotten the general idea.

Uhmm, on second thought.... there is one thing I really need to discuss. Shockingly figured out that big-comfy-making-you-happy-man doesn't exsist! Sorry to disappoint, but Santa Claus doesn't come down the chimney. And he is definitely not wearing a red-white ensemble. The ho, ho, ho is a no, no no: "Santa Claus" drops the presents on your front door, wears the uniform of your local post officer, and he's not accompanied by reindeer, but (hopefully) a box from your favorite heel dealer.

Only if you were smart enough to order some cuties weeks ago, of course. For all those who didn't: well, Paul Warmer is open today. Just throw on something red and white yourself and fetch something cool last minute. Pffff..... aren't we a little too old for urban legends anyway?

O.H. M.Y……. D'SQUARED2

O.H. M.Y. ... DSQUARED2

Read more...

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.

Today's shoes are D'squared2

Happy Meal

Happy Meal

Read more...

Since I’m back in Amsterdam, the change of scenery couldn’t be more surreal. No one waking me up way too early, jumping in my bed sporting a snotty nose, no one calling in the middle of the night to get some hot cocoa. Boyfriend is not the kind of guy that interrupts my day to show me a new picture he doodled just for me (by the way.... should I be disappointed?) or that he can ride a bike without safety wheels.
No neighbours who react to my climbing in trees and taking pictures with “ooooh, that’s cute” (excuse me? Was wearing hot pants and glittery wedges, that’s FASHION not cute!), no audience that couldn’t give a hoot if I wear flats and jeans (something I’d only wear “incognito” here).
Am home and reunited with my heels, but miss my family... dearly.

Their influence is obvious though. Never have ordered a happy meal before, munching fries and sipping a milkshake (tempted to burp afterwards, but this will have to wait until I’m back home). Can’t help but smile. Heels and calories... can totally combine two utterly different worlds.

Super Powers

25|08_2012

An upcoming event got me thinking about Super Powers. No ladies, am not talking about US and the average working full time, juggling job, kids and housework, while always looking fit and well-rested (+trimmed, +well-groomed, +perfect manipedi), still having time to twitter, facebook, email, phone, plus at the end of the day - still überstylish- having a great time with friends and husband/boyfriend. Nope.

It’s about REAL superpowers: am going to see Spiderman. To make this clear to viewers of this remake of the remake of the remake, it’s called “the AMAZING” Spiderman. Just to make sure that everybody understands how great it is to squeeze body-parts into a skintight suit (red - blue: the ultimate fashion faux pax!) to contribute to the world’s well-being.
Decided to see it though as I’m curious how someone named “Garfield” would slip into the character of a spider. (Last time I saw any “Garfield” hypergymnastics were definitely not on his menu).

Peter Parker watch out. You may wear a mask to become invincible but any superwoman knows that the real power always lies in wearing a high heel. Who needs to climb walls anyway when you can manage to balance in 6 inches.
