Happy Holidays!

Happy Holiday!

Only one day left in good old 2014 and I find myself at the most gorgeous, yet coldest location ever. While jumping up and down in the park of Klessheim, Austria, I can’t help the thought that this very moment pretty much resembles the extremes of this year.

I’m not a big fan of quotes (unless they contain the words “high heels” or make me giggle (like “DON’T READ THE NEXT WORDS...... “oh - you little rebel I like you”.....), but if there’s something that I learned to be true, it’s that it’s worth to fight for your beliefs: no matter what. There will always be doubters, haters and non-believers but there will also always be YOU to prove them wrong. And YES, you can do it (even when you are freezing your toes off). And YES, keep your dreams as high as the heels that you are wearing.
What 2015 will bring? I have no idea, but I am excited to share it with you. Thank you for being part of all sore feet, blisters, highs- and lows measured in heels 2014.

Happy Holidays my dear shoelovers, I hope we will meet again in 2015!

Sollenau (next to Vienna) is a small village where the fox and the hare bid each other goodnight. It would also be the dullest place on earth (sorry Sollenauers…) if it weren’t for one of the most fancy shoe stores in Austria: “Wunderl”.

Back in the day (before everything was just a mouse click away), this was the only place selling Prada, Tod’s, Guiseppe Zanotti, Stuart Weitzman and all the other delicious brands that make a heel-addict’s heart skip a beat.

Once upon a time, some 12 years ago, a little girl with a big bonus from work went in “just to have a look”. It took her all of 60 minutes to spend ALL of what she had earned, stocking up on the loveliest of heels, feeling very much like Alice in Wonderland.
In shoe-Wunderl-wonderland that is. And, you guessed right: the gal was me.
It was the beginning of an enduring love affair with beautiful shoes, detailed design in a size 37 (the only size which has never changed through all the yo-yo’s in my life), and in a sense the origin of this very blog.

All these years later, not much has changed: Dolce is even using the same patterns this summer as they did back then. And I still feel very “Alice”, wishing my shoes would miraculously multiply overnight.
Like bunnies. In or out of Wonderland: I wouldn’t care.
