Vive la France!

Vive La France!

BF had to lock

the car all the way to Paris (Oh! Paris! Fashion Metropolis! ) -the only reason I agreed to spend a holiday in France, -to not make me jump out of the car to dash into Bondini, (shoes!) Dior (shoes!) Louis Vuitton (shoes!), etc and spend all our holiday money on a single pair of heels. Very possibly on just one shoe of the new a\w collection only. Or, a brooch for that matter (souvenir!). Or, just simply to have inhaled the luxury odor of some fancy French brand by entering it’s flagship once.

With his feet on the gas pedal like Superman to rescue someone (erg.. well, moi indulging in all the superficial) we arrived in the middle of nowhere in the cutest village and most authentic small cottage in the heart of France to spend the next days calm and quiet.

Guess what. I managed to carry a “Baguette” anyway. It might not be the Fendi version, but it lingers in my arms just like it. And it’s definitely the only accessory needed in St Savinien on the first morning of your French holiday. Vive la France!

15 years ago I found myself at an event in Berlin, telling a nice bloke at some bar about my passion for shoes at 4 o clock in the morning. Today, it so happened that exactly that guy flew me in to Munich to present (I’m a muse! I’m a muse!!!) his outcome of exactly that conversation: the most amazing shoe case you have ever seen.

Hans Buchegger, couldn't let the brainy itch go of where - for christ sake - a crazy gal like me (and Sylvie van der Vaart amongst others) would store their precious’s (aka beloved Jimmy’s Charlotte’s and Loubies) and developed something incredible. A rotation shoe case, operated by its own iPhone App (take a picture of your babies, press, and they will be delivered to your service instantly) supported by a little bit of shiny light, which will turn into a mirror (handy! - make up check!!!) when not in use.

Phew. Have I seen something like that before? Nope. Did someone ever mention “It takes a little bit of crazy to come up with something genius?” Hell yes, and all game I am! All I need now are enough Jimmy’s and Loubies to make the investment just worth it. Might be the first time that I’m not only gushing about shoes, but about their “home” as well. Well, if that’s not Luxury Desire indeed, I don’t know!

But the shoe case works with all kind of brands, I swear!

Wanna Be a Rock Star

Wanna Be a Rock Star

Jumped into heels and almost immediately on to set when asked to do some styling work for Dikker & Thijs (fancy hotel in the heart of Amsterdam). I mean, who wouldn't want to shuffle accessoires at a place where celebrities have dined and rockstars slept? Well, hello: I would. Totally have a crush on the atmosphere of hotels anyway. They are like a novel written by the personal stories of all the guests, and from the knowing smile of the accurate and discrete hotel crew am a 100 procent sure that they know quite a few.

How nice to visit all these treasure rooms enjoying all insights and working behind the (nonetheless luxury) scenes. Top tip though: High Heels are not really advised for an up and downstairs marathon of a four story historical building. But would I stay in this lovely 4 star residence? Definitely.

Am just wondering if they could put "TV's" on the room service-menu (to order with that bottle of champagne). I always wanted to be a rockstar and book the Penthouse suite, drink all the booze and throw the TV out of the window. Am sure the lovely crew at Dikker and Thijs wouldn't tell a soul.
