One pair of missing Jimmys and a real Cinderella story

One pair of missing Jimmys and a real Cinderella story

As we do every year, friends and I (aka a couple of heels) gathered to watch the Eurovision Songcontest, and gosh! This year's show was killing me! Originally from Austria but living in the Netherlands for such a long time now, watching the race between Austria’s Wurst-Princess and Dutch Ilse de Lange (in Claes Iversen and Jimmy Choo) was a nail-biting experience and the result almost blew me out of my own heels while bouncing through the living room in total delight.

It’s not only that Austria won. It’s the statement that won; about being bullied forever for being different and actually being an outcast but not being afraid to keep on going and believing. What a pleasure to see there was support for this statement throughout Europe, and how lovely to prove all disbelievers and negative thinkers wrong. Happy ending!

And Ilse! I think the only thing worse than coming second is that someone stole your Jimmys before the show (myself a firm believer that the right heel is always a lucky charm). But let’s toast to heels, great performances, being a tad different than everybody else, and always, ALWAYS believing in yourself whatever the odds. Tomorrow I will grow a beard.

Today’s shoes are not Jimmy Choo but glittery as such.
It's just only today that I found out that actually a friend of mine wrote the winning song.
A double win! Congratulations Conchita and Ali!

I don’t know about you ladies, but (even though have never won) I'm a sucker for seeking my fortune. It's not just Charlie Sheen who thinks “winning” is totally “now”, so a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. That twist-off cap promising you a fabulous trip to the Caribbean? Totally went to their website. That poll on any high-fashion-brand luring you to enter for a chance to win a seasonal outfit tip to toe? Check! Oh, and not to mention the numerous scratch-and-win tickets I love to collect, waiting for the right moment to scratch them open (BF thinks I’m crazy, but that’s another story and might very well been told another time...)

Never giving up though, it's all for a good cause. Just imagine how many good things you could do after hitting some jackpot! A whole new alphabet of opportunities would open its doors (from A (aka Altuzarra) over L (Loubies come to Mamma!) to Z (aka Zanotti - a staple in any heels wardrobe anyway).

But whatever method you might fancy to win that golden pot: try your luck adding a decent heel to your outfit you're at it. You'll remember that lucky pair forever. I'd say very win win indeed.
