Watch out: Kingsday is looming!

Watch out: Kingsday is looming!

The most crazy day in Holland is just around the corner and every year around this time the same inevitably questions arise. Where to celebrate? (Boat madness? Street madness? Private madness?) How to pull a decent Lindsay Lohan (aka party to the max) without checking into rehab afterwards? And how to sport the must-wear color of the day (orange) without looking like an escaped tropic bird on acid?

Kingsday may be the most frolicsome national event of the year, fashion wise it is a disaster. There is a reason why fashion designers never choose full orange-outfits on any runway EVER. The same goes for footwear, unless you are a sneaker or Crocs person. Dancing, cheering, running around with 800.000 party companions soaking in all the madness will have it’s toll on your outfit (beer showers, canal water, probably rain this year) and your feet (toes stepped on, blisters, scattered glass) so you better be prepared.

I always opt for some cheerful comfy layers and some heels I won’t regret ruining (although NO heel deserves such a cruel fate), wearing a smile on top of everything and making sure my glass (=most important accessoire) is never empty. Then just go with the flow and enjoy to the max. No one ever will be excused wearing bright orange trousers with a tiger print in public on any other day. Be that tropic bird for once and HAVE FUN!!!

It’s the most glamorous month of the year, and everything normally considered “over the top” or “too much” is not only appreciated, it’s a must. When you hear the first tunes of Mariah Carey yodeling to the jingling sound of bells it’s time to run and undust the sequin dresses, polish the über-big jewellery and put any modesty on hold: it’s December for glamour’s sake!

I personally can’t wait to hear my family laugh and sqeak when I start my annual competition to outshine the christmas tree, as a sucker for sparkles, I can’t wait to have a decent reason to look like a discoball on acid. So, just to get me in the mood I decorated a little today, popped some champagne in advance (glistening fluid: my best, where have you been for so long), and threw myself a little pre-christmas party, with the best attendees ever! Well, to me that looks all gorgeous. Bring on Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is Youuuuuuuuu”. And by that I mean at least one more pair of glittering heels!
