Lost and Found: My Very First Pair of Heels

It is not unknown that most girls have an estimated amount of millions of shoes. Females are just known for being obsessed with shoes. I wouldn’t particularly call myself a shoe fanatic and compared to many females I probably don’t have many shoes but the ones I do have I take much care of. Especially since I don’t just buy any shoes. My feet are very sensible so I tend to save some money and invest that in more expensive shoes that are of good quality.

With about 5 ft 4 1/2 I’m really not that tall. Almost all of my friends are at least a few inches taller than me and now that I go to college in the Netherlands I feel shorter than ever. People there are freaking tall! That’s exactly the reason why I tend to wear heels so I don’t look like a dwarf next to everyone else.

Just like probably every girl I still remember buying my very first high heels though they weren’t really that high. I’m originally from Europe but I’ve lived in Louisiana, USA, for a while when I was a 15-year-old. There I attended a private High School and just like every typical High School we had school dances of course. So when I was 15 I went to my first High School dance; the Homecoming Dance. I was wearing this gorgeous  dress and I got the cutest shoes to go along with it. I was in love with them. Although I was only 15 I felt like such a woman. After all I was buying my very first heels. Guys probably won’t understand this but for most girls wearing heels for the first time is like being one step closer to growing up and becoming a woman.

I have always kept my first high heels but suddenly I couldn’t find them anymore and that made me really sad. They were my first and I wore them to Homecoming so they bring back a lot of good memories.

After 2 months I finally found them in some old box in the very back of our basement. You cannot imagine how relieved I was. Now they are in a very special place in my closet next to my most precious heels. This way I hopefully won’t lose them again.  Anyway.. this just inspired me to dedicate a post to my very first high heels.

Am I the only one that’s this sentimental or do you girls still remember your first pair of heels and what occasion you bought them for?

Much love :)

Sparkly Outfit for the Holidays

So we’re still on Christmas break and my family has decided to end off Christmas by going to a fancy restaurant. Now the question is always: WHAT TO WEAR?  You don’t want to be overdressed and definitely not underdressed.

Here’s an idea from me.

I’m wearing this party dress tonight but I’m going to turn it into an appropriate outfit for a restaurant by adding a few accessories.

I decided to match a pearl bracelet with it to make the outfit look more sophisticated.

Of course the right shoes are alway important! Since I’m going to a restaurant I decided to go with a low heel.

Since the dress is strapless and that might be a little cold I decided to wear my sparkly little black jacket with it.

As for the hair and make up…. I kind of wanted to create a messy hair look so I washed it and put it up in a bun right after to make it a little wavy. I also put one part of my hair like this Photo on 26-12-13 at 06.26 pm #3

I’m a fan of red lipstick and since it looks good with this dress I decided to go with red lipstick but a light eye make up.

No, my eye lashes are not fake!
