While everybody in Holland is busy discussing whether or not the tradition of “zwarte piet” is still appropriate, I’m confronted with some traditions my own while spending time in my home country Vienna. No matter how busy the time schedule, there’s always time to squeeze in some coffee at one of my favorite places: a Viennese coffee house.

Tradition here couldn’t be written more plastic clearly than on a Louis Vuitton Monogram bag: Old ladies with poodles (dressed their best Diva-ish) nibbling on Sachertorte, the odd school kids cutting classes (sneaking out without paying their bills), students (art class, I bet) looking all rebellious while doodling in diaries, business men eager to catch the latest news from INSANELY huge newspapers (just a wild guess, but isn’t news in ink like so yesterday?), and not to forget the always grumpy waiters giving you “THE LOOK” when you order nothing but coffee. (It’s Einspänner, Verlängerter, Kleiner Schwarzer / Brauner, Großer Schwarzer / Brauner, Melange, Cappuccino and Latte really)

And of course there’s the odd girl, fumbling with a camera to capture all that atmosphere, trying to pose and eat cake at the same time. How touristy! But her heels, man.... her heels........!

Whenever back in Vienna, the town where not only moi, but also the idea to write a shoe-blog was born -I fall in love with it all over again. Am totally aware that the grass to walk your high heels on always seems greener on the other side (or other location), but damn this city is gorgeous! The space! The gorgeous old houses would fit my entire Amsterdam home (shoe room included) in their pompous lobbies alone. The culinary temptations that have me nibbling on green salad weeks before departure. OK, that’s a lie: I totally should though, everything here is so (!) yummy, that I’m afraid of having to pay extra for excess luggage (no, not that pair of shoes too many, those 100.000 calories too many).

But maybe, MAYBE it's the fact that the most charming shoesalon is located just here - a place where I always feel at home, delighted by the shoe pep talk between experts (the owner Harald Lex is probably the only straight guy I know who speaks “shoe” fluently), surrounded by beautiful High Heels who all seem to beg “Take me, Take me”. I always walk out with a smile ...and that certain shopping bag filled with leather cuties obviously.

Ah, am loving it! Now off for the fattening part.

Finally back in Amsterdam, the past week seems like a dream. Was it really only a couple of days ago that I spent my day leisurely hopping from one beautiful location to another, sipping Austrian wine and Hugo (yes, dear Dutch people, this is one still to learn!) enjoying 36 degrees?

Amongst the countless moments of bliss, one event especially stands out: shooting the beauties of my favorite heel-dealer Shoetation, which lead me this time to the magic-wonderland roof terrace of my dear friend Manfred.

His cute gaybours designed the most amazing garden above Vienna, and with all the lovely heels I felt like Alice in Wonderland. Make that Me in Shoetation-Wonderland. Now hand me over that Hugo to celebrate, all the heels are 50% on Sale as well. Could it get any better???

It was about a month ago that I recieved a parcel with a bunch of gorgeous heels (unpacking it an event only comparable to Easter, Christmas and my birthday at the same time), from young fashionable brand “Fersengold” Berlin.

Safinaz Baylav started her label in 2009 and was an instant hit with her comfortable yet über-stylish heels, taking the international market by storm. Super proud with the cuties, I was eager to start shooting immediately, but you have to understand that shoes (especially those with inches) do have a personality too, and they can be very Diva-ish in demanding the perfect setting, the perfect occasion, and the perfect moment to let them shine.

No doubt today’s hot, fun coloured beauties needed to be teamed up with some cool factor - which Is just what found on the roof terrace of my friend's house in Vienna. Perhaps wearing a Neopren bathing suit with long sleeves at 36 degrees wasn't the best idea: but loooooooooook at those Showstoppers!

St. Tropez what?

How happy I would have been to have a little more time to run around Vienna and feature all my favorite, magical places. Vienna coffee houses for example, with their fluffy and frivolous red interiors where people of all ages sit for hours to study the newspapers. The great architecture of the opera, the museums, the concert halls. Or simply the Naschmarkt: a food paradise where you can find everything your belly desires and everything a 4 inch heel and trained arm can carry home.

Yes, it would have been lovely indeed, but my spare time is limited as I'm also busy preparing for my darling sister’s 40ieth B-day. So no time for me to read the news or catch up on the latest gossip. No time to visit my friends Schiele and Klimt (luckily I did manage to see some of my living friends) and the odd five minutes I do have to spare, I spend on: well, take an educated guess. Unpacking boxes and boxes from my old/new heel friend Shoetation, not getting enough of trying on all the cuties and playing princess (aka Snow White) in supertrendy high heels. My kingdom is the living room, my treasure green suede leather with golden studs.
One of my 7 dwarves is passionately enthusiastic too. The other six are out buying apples at Naschmarkt.
