You’re So Vain
Not long ago, I was invited to a dinner party. To my surprise the hostess opened the door barefoot. Normally, this only happens on yachts and end of October, especially in Berlin the sailing season is already over. She accentuated her bare feet with a pair of those jeans that could have possibly been inherited by Jane Fonda herself (possibly also by Rickie Lauren ). Along with the beeswax polished parquet of their advantageous lit apartment this made a veritable killer look (in the background Carly Simon “You’re So Vain” was playing). During the welcome drinks the other guests also looked back and to the ground again, but not with shame or so-called embarrassment, but because the bare feet of the hostess were an unusual vision of delight for this kind of occasion.
You have to be able to afford this! A pedicure as this is not only suitable for a conversation piece in bed or during sandal season. Professionally groomed feet feel great even in ski boots – and if you feel just great, it shows. Actually, with my shop MDC Cosemtics I’ve decided consistently to sell natural cosmetics only. In the early days we have experimented with much vegan or at least unconventional mixed nail polishes. Unfortunately, the science is just not there yet. The paints often do not have sufficient coverage. And if so, the edges scroll of at the slightest stress. So we have decided to go for the range of Feride Uslu’s paints in the treatment cabin. Uslu Airlines has a modern color palette and is always doing interesting collaborations with designers. Lacquer paint is laquer paint, it has to shine and hold – and what that can ideally do, I have recently experienced at this dinner. At the end of the evening everyone including men had exchanged their pedicure tips.
