Wedding Mania!

Wedding Mania!

This year seems the official year-of-love with so many weddings, that the fashion-head get’s a little dizzy due to all outfit choices: never prettier than the bride, no white, still festive, you know the rules. Plus, my feet still hurt from the last wedding party, Dr. Scholl to the rescue, please!!!

So when BFF not only called to attend his “I do” in Vienna recently but also to perform with him on stage to surprise the bride, it was clear to opt for a more edgy gown than you would normally expect for a formal, and sometimes “let’s all die in elegance” event. Think Guns N' Roses meets Nina Simone. So besides the heels (which I almost killed during the entrance song: Nomen est omen since it was 'Mr. Brightside' by The Killers), I NEEDED that top hat and feather boa, or have you ever seen Slash on stage without his hat or any jazz singer without feathers dramatically draped around his or her neck? Needless to say it also comes in handy to wear a detachable skirt to strip your outfit from ceremony to party: it helps competing with the sunrise while still moving wildly to disco tunes.

As far as the performance went, thanks for asking, I definitely played with all I got. Meaning, a lot of Dior “Pandore 754” Varnis which will now remain on the black & white keys forever.

Today’s shoes are some hot red pretty soles, which were shipped to the emergency room (aka heel doctor) with severe fractures immediately after the event.

The Dutch summer is officially gone (after having never really started). You can tell, not just by looking at the weather (why didn’t Stella come up with a neoprene jumpsuit as IT-piece for SS2012?), but more so from own mood (miserable, grumpy, overconsumption of chocolate cookies).
Plus, when the most anticipated show on TV - the weather report (new “Breaking Bad” anyway) - only uses phrases like: “tomorrow will definitely be better “, “you never know what next week will bring” and: “heeeeeeeey: it’s 18 degrees, why complain?”, you know for sure.

Tired of buying wooly jumpers rather than sandals on sale (compulsive online buys also vary from wraps to (another) umbrella and flippers), I may be exaggerating but have decided to kick off “cozy season” instead of constantly moaning (bad for your skin anyway, on the off chance next summer offers you an opportunity to show it..).

If anyone is looking for me: I’m the fur ball formerly known as swimsuit goddess, hiding under blankets, heater on. Best featured body part this summer season? Tip of nose, dipped in hot chocolate.

I rest my case.
