The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

Glitz, glam, decandence, titivating trash, heartbreaking kitsch and the robbing of every archive of costume and prop rental available is pretty much the synopsis of every Baz Luhrman movie (and a reason to go see them). In his latest attempt to lure us into a visual orgy you will very well feel like an extra in a Moët/Prada /Tiffany commercial too (aka would totally do it and be happy to be paid in kind).

So why the negativity? None of the reviews about the GG movie (by the way: great logo old sport!) I read were very positive, and I’m a bit surprised. Who cares if Baz is tone-deaf when dealing with nuanced human emotions or tragedy (- aren’t we dealing with those enough in real life?), or only aims for the over-the-top, operatic effect and not for the intimate (- be honest ladies, for real intimicy we go home, not to the movies, and cuddle our cat/BF/kids or shoes - optionally of course.)

To pay a little tribute to Mr. Luhrman's effort: this film will leave you very thirsty - dying for a sip of champagne - hungry for the next over the top party (YES! Slipping on a great pair of heels) and super keen to see a ... ergh....actually really good movie. Well, If that isn't positive! Bring it on baby!

Today’s shoes are not Prada. My jewellery (of course!) is Tiffany

Ladies, I did it. When I hit the keys on the first of January this year to write my first blog entry, I had 366 days ahead of me (aka a HUGE blank piece of paper if you like) and no idea where the journey would lead me. My heel closet was a beloved mess, my babies all eagerly waiting to be featured and little did I know how to embed photographing and writing in my everyday routine. Realizing that I just hit the mark of writing my 300th post in a row (absolutely a reason to celebrate as this year only counts 366 days, so no more "round" numbers to cheer on): there couldn't be a better moment to pamper my feet with yet another special pair of heels. The myth, the legend, the ultimate treat: the one and only red sole there is: Louboutins.

So after 300 days (closet and blogging super strictly organized) and with my new purchase now officially consider myself a "heel" grown-up.There are certainly things you can't do anymore while wearing Loubies, right? Such as sitting any other way than with your legs neatly folded, fooling around with stupid toys for blog entry, or shaking that bottle of champagne before opening (and drinking straight out of it...): no, no! I'm a lady now! Jichaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Now where's my glass?

The List

The List

Read more...

Am a big fan of lists, actually can’t live without them. Have quite a few: the “To achieve” list (global context, think politics, fund raising and saving the world), the “What to do if I win the lottery”  list (quite long, a lot of investments and fund raising planned (read improve heel collection), the wish list (almost the same as the lottery list, but including little details like being happy with what you have rather than what you do not (and a Balenciaga dress AW 2012 obviously), the daily “To do” list (boring but necessary as I forget everything I do not write down) and so on and so on.

Since I realized I haven’t had one (!) haircut yet this year, I started the “Haven’t done yet” list too… just in case my neglected body parts start calling to ask whether I have completely quit caring or what. To balance this list (and prevent depression) I have the “What I did” list as well.

And just in case you’re wondering what has kept me so busy (besides working and writing) lately: it’s actually my new (and very own) shoe-blog-website, which will be launched, tadaaaaa: August 1st. I can leak this information (confidentially of course) because the Brandbridge team and I have worked our, ergh, “heels” off this past month, to put everything together and tomorrow will be our last day of fine-heel-tuning. That, and the fact that I can put a “check”  behind 7th month of blogging on my “What I did” list tomorrow as well.

So top of my list today (crossed off getting sleep and pedi, will have to wait until 2nd of August): pop the champagne and celebrate a bit. Because it’s all worth it.

Happy ending

Today is the day: boyfriend’s coming home! Being the romantic sucker that I am, I have pictured the moment we will fall into each others arms a 1000 times. I will look flawless in my new Elle Macpherson (barely there) intimates, wearing nothing else but my new shoes and a bottle of fine champagne. As I open the door, I will look irresistibly mysterious, whispering (as I give him THE look): “Welcome home baby.”

Hm. That was before I realized how much of a “Zombie” I have been the past week.

Zombies tend to not do laundry, neither do they care if the fridge is full (well, you have seen it), nor if the dishes are done.

Living only by night, they also don’t see (or care about) the dust flocking together happily in every corner. And they definitely don’t touch a vacuum cleaner.

From “freak” week and Zombie nights, I have now entered “panic woman”-mode, sweating to get at least a little bit done (note to self: Macpherson undies are a great cleaning outfit!).

Turns out boyfriend returns as a Zombie too (27 hours DJ-ing in total have taken their toll as well…), and you only need 4 square meters to create a floating island in all the chaos. (No, no lingerie or shoes needed! :-) Imperfection rules, happy ending after all.
Now if you will politely excuse us… we need to…….. sleep.
