Hello Summer!

Hello Summer!

Read more...

Sun is dimming its light to a subtle lavender color and small chuckling wave makes the lake in front of me look like a dyed deep blue plissé Isabel Marant skirt (summer collection 2014). The passing little ducklings in their young fluffy plumage would make a fantastic marabu bolero (OK... duckling bolero than...) for next winter and my attempts to keep the last candle burning (summery breeze!) to be able to type are to no avail as is it to neglect the gravity of my eyelids after a long relaxed boat ride in the sun.

When typing this, it’s the first long summer weekend in the Netherlands and I have done nothing but eat and drink with friends for 72 hours solid, dancing on boats and in summer bouts of rain, cycling across the city at 4 in the morning, sleeping in and enjoying life.

Only some simple snapshots, almost no running in heels, no fuss about dress codes, just decadent nothingness (and thinking of those duckling feathers admittedly: they would make fantastic boots too.... )
Please enjoy the official summer opening and shoe yourself, I’ve gone tanning!

Love you all, happy (off) heel greetings!

When in love you inevitably experience some symptoms, which funnily enough, never seem to change, whatever age you may be. You'll feel like a giggling teenager, bubbling with inexplicable joy, grinning like an idiot 24/7. You'll experience an enormous boost of confidence and feel totally invincible. Plus you'll look jealous-makingly radiant and find everybody asking you what your beauty secret is.

There could also be another super good reason for all of the above: A) You bought a new pair of heels, B) You bought a new pair of heels before your holiday and recieved them just in time to pop them into your suitcase, or C) you're on vacation with the man you love, wearing this exact pair of heels in the most lovely scenery you can imagine, feeling like a godess.

Well, in my case it’s all those three and I loved, loved, LOVED every minute of it. Must sadly say goodbye to France though and head off to another thing I dearly love: Vogue Fashion Night Out in Amsterdam. Couldn’t resist doing some preparation already.

P.S.: If you are going to VFNO as well, say hello if you see me.
I’ll be the one who can't seem to stop giggling and grinning like an idiot.

All that glitter IS gold

All that glitter IS gold

Water and the incredible light (aka inspiration for artists such as Vermeer and Rembrandt to do some doodling) have always been an essential part of the history of the Netherlands. And are the reason why thousands of tourists now flood the city every year to explore the charm of the canals.

Living here, the relationship to all that water (mostly coming from above aka rain) and “golden moments” (aka light, aka sun) is only comparable to that of having a baby though. It will cry and pee most of the time (water, water, more water!), which you try to accept, endure and ignore until your nerves are so tense and your own mood so strained that you simply can’t stand it any more. But the moment baby smiles ONCE, just for a few minutes, you will forget everything and simply stand in awe and pure delight, forgetting everything.

It’s 11 o clock at night in my city, it’s summer and I’m walking my lovely heels (brand: Fersengold, this name can’t be an coincidence!). I am asking you: Isn’t the light still incredible? Isn’t the setting just gorgeous? And isn’t this the most beautiful city in the world? Yep, I assure you: all that glitter IS gold, and it’s all worth waiting for.
