It’s almost inexcusable how I have neglected my shoe-collection (and therefor outfit and styling of any kind) the past weeks, but have been very busy organizing a surprise for BFF who is getting hitched this weekend in Austria. We share a passion for drama and theatrical scenes (not that either of us would EVER act like that...) so of course it had to be something special.

Since my last attempt to delight an audience resulted in my being banned from any kind of stage forever, I spent long hours in the studio excelling in preparatory work - and I can totally share now because as you read this my sweet friend will be fiddling with her veil and definitely not checking her Facebook account.

My gorgeous boots fit the theme perfectly: L-Enfant Terrible it is, and I’d say bring on the lights: am totally ready to delight an audience... again. Did I mention something with “drama” in the beginning?

When my friend Tim (Ayres, who you know as "photographer-to-be-the-one") asked me to help with some lines in German (aka voice over) for a befriended artist, of course I said "yes". Am glad to help, and with a new pair of heels in tow (very "studs in the studio", I like!) couldn't be more excited. We meet at 10 in the morning, and I'm a little anxious that I might sound like Joe Cocker (think whiskey voice) at this very early hour.

But the lovely Jos van Merendonk (who has been working exclusively with only one particular shade of green for the past 23 years) couldn't be more relaxed with everything. He simply fixed the microphone to an empty Lascaux bottle and didn't mind when during our Dutch-English and German croaking: the neighbour's vacuum cleaner went on, the garage next door started their washing facility, or my telephone kept ringing (yeah, sorry, didn't know how to turn it off...) Wow. Green pretty much seems a totally relaxing color! Might consider that for my next heel purchase... for today my yellow ones fit just fine.

It’s Friday the 13th (again…it’s the third but luckily also the last one this year) but rather than looking out for black cats crossing the street, am looking forward to see one of my favorite designers today: Melanie Brown.
Even when weather god is not acting in my favor, fashion god is: am allowed to pick an outfit of hers for fashion week. Am so excited!
With my mission: “When sun won’t shine, I will” in mind, I hit her studio in the Hazenstraat feeling very much the celebrity, trying on especially customized and truly unique couture dresses. Am also totally in awe of her winter collection: it’s all about layers and refined possibilities of combining and wearing clothes in a variety of ways, and includes a leather T as soft as butter that she designed for …ha, must have been me! Would die for it (or rather….stop buying shoes and start saving money now)!

Over tea (Melanie is such a charming Brit) we chat about details and vision of her work before browsing her SS collection 2013 which I will be allowed to wear. Did I just say SS 2013??? Feel very Agyness Deyn and utterly privileged. Time flies with this lovely lady, who couldn’t be more passionate about her work and I am eager to take today’s picture.

Heading home with a (not so fashionable, but smelling gorgeous) take-out chicken for dinner on one side of my bike, a bag of couture clothes on the other and a festival to go to later on (see you in boots), I think Friday the 13th is just my lucky day.
