Woke up this morning, happy to be back to a sunny Geneva, which is rarely the case… As it has been a while that I am rarely home, had to do the boring stuff, like invoices, grocery shopping etc… But I had to catch up with friends as well. So decide to have lunch with “wifey”. She is my high school friend that I know for 25 years now. We studied and lived in Pensionnat Valmont, Lausanne. It is a school where the Marcelline Sisters devoted themselves to the education of young women, in other words, a girl’s boarding school governed by the nuns, with so many restrictions that we end up … well we end up like me, free spirited. So my friend that I call wifey was there as well, and she did her part of globetrotting and we end up both in Geneva… no need to add which kind of special bond we have.
So as we both keep traveling, we try to catch up whenever we are both in town. And this time we decided to go to “l’Armoire” (literally means the closet) for healthy food. Although last time we had lunch there, we both had burgers with fries. L’Armoire is a restaurant that opened in Geneva for few years now. The food is always quite decent, and what I like about is that, beside the familiar faces I always see there, while waiting for your food you can read little inscriptions on the walls about funny citations. The lunch crowd is a mix of business people and ladies catching up, and the dinner crowd is composed of the usual suspects, getting ready for a long night out. They have a little terrace which is literally on the street, so it is nice to be out but if you sit at the edge you basically inhale all the cars smoke and survive through the roads dust. I prefer the tables near the sidewalk where it is a little healthier. So we sat on our table, I ordered a beef tartare, and wifey took a seafood ceviche. It was a good food, great company, and not overpriced like most of Geneva restaurants. So I highly advise to give a chance if you r in town and not looking for the perfect terrace.
After lunch I went and did some shopping, because all the private sales started, girlzz and boyzz, get ready in Geneva the sales has started as well. And I am the proud parent of two new Lesputains (Louboutin) for the ones who read me the first time) …
and now so happy to be home and chill. You know me; never go out at nights on the week-ends :)

All my friends know that I am a shoe addict, when I see a pair that I love, I need to have them, and sometimes I am ashamed of the price that I put in shoes. Once of my bosses in the past even proposed me to pay with shoes instead of money. What can I say some people invest in property, I invest in shoes…

I have purchased my first Louboutin, couple of years ago when I first created my company in NY to congratulate myself… I had to have one, because I thought it was very sexy wearing those red sole pumps.
You have to understand, wearing a Louboutin is not that easy, you have to have very thin toes, otherwise you might need to cut your fourth finger. At the beginning, I remember having tears in my eyes cause I wanted to keep them all night long.
But with time you learn, some put some Vaseline in their toes (be careful to not put too much cause you risk the fly), my trick is to buy a size bigger to have more space in the front, and believe it or not train myself to wear them. And it works; now I have several “les putains” as I call them and they are among my most comfy shoes.

When I moved back to Geneva, I was very sad, because there was only one store selling them but only basics that I already owned, so I needed to travel again to buy them.
But good news Geneva, since December, Geneva has its own Louboutin store…
I have tried to be strong and not go to the store, but today I had to go… come on, I just came from detox and lost weight, and when some people buy clothes to celebrate that, I need to buy shoes ;)
So after lunch I went to their store in rue du Rhone (which is our Via Montenapoleone, or our Madisson Avenue). It is a beautiful store on two levels, I highly advise to check upstairs as well, the working staff is very helpful and sweet. And the most important, they have a great selection, and they have sizes.
While I was trying my future adopted kids, the store was very busy. And almost everyone was leaving with at least one pair of “les putains”.
I guess the crisis is not touching the sexy red sole pumps in Geneva!!!!
