Finding THE dress …

“Alles Walzer!” (let’s walz) – that is today’s motto! I am so excited to tell you guys that I will be attending the Opera Ball here in Vienna for the first time in February … such a dream come true! Naturally, the first question that popped into my head was “what on earth am I going to wear?”. That’s why I headed to Peek & Cloppenburg in the 1st district this past weekend to do a bit of dress shopping. Of course, I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous white gowns, designed exclusively by Atil Kutoglu for P&C. The modern interpretation of Sisi with the draped shoulder was literally too stunning for words … however, since only the debutantes get to wear white, my search continued. I want to wait until the actual ball to show you the dress, but I do have a few shots from the fitting to share today. Excited to hear what you guys think!

HEALTHY LIVING: time to detox

Some of you may have already spotted a little detox-preview on my Instagram account (@vickyheiler), and so I thought it was time to give you a more detailed update after completing my first 2 days of nothing but liquids with Detox Delight. First things first: I know detoxing is experiencing a certain hype right now, and I know some of you are already sick of hearing about it. However, I am the kind of person that always needs to experience things in order to form an opinion. I don’t listen to judgements about other people, I try to get to know them. I don’t believe others when they say somethings doesn’t taste good, I like to try it myself. Naturally the same goes for detoxing!

FOR THE HOME: tales for oskar

I have a major weakness for pretty coffee table books. And while I do want them to look good around the apartment, I also want them to actually inspire me. Whether it is home decor, beautiful stories or photographs – books should be an escape from reality. My most recent purchase is “Tales For Oskar” by the super talented Kristian Schuller. He is my personal favorite photographer (some of you may know him from Germany’s Next Top Model) and I feel like his fashion photography captures the essence of a modern day fairy tale. A few years ago I saw some of his work at the Kunsthalle here in Vienna, and from the entire exhibition his photographs definitely stuck with me the most and made a lasting impression. So much, that I went back to see the same exhibition for a second time.

BITS & PIECES: hello September

September isn’t really amongst my favorites months, as we officially have to say good-bye to Summer, but it also holds a few special dates, such as the anniversary with my favorite mister or his birthday. And as of this year, September will always be the month that Kathi and I officially got the keys for our first office. Sometimes it still feels absolutely surreal that we get to call this our life. I am so proud of everything we have accomplished during the last year and so excited for everything the future has in store for us. So here’s a little insta-recap from the past few weeks:
