A C C E S S O R I E S / The Glass Slippers Fit

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a pair of lucite Prada sandals from spring summer 2010 in the racks of Kiki Niesten's outlet in Maastricht last weekend. They had a couple of hefty discount stickers on the bottom of the soles. How on earth was it possible that these shoes with iconic status hadn't found an owner since they came in two years ago? Probably because the Dutch are such tall people, according to the sales girls size 36 is always hard to sell. But for me they were a perfect fit!(Do you blame me I felt like Cinderella for a second!?) Being short and having tiny feet does have it's perks after all in The Netherlands. Climbing into the racks at the supermarket to reach the top shelves and constantly getting elbows in my face during rush hour at the station is totally worth the advantage in the field of shopping.

Wauw! Wat prachtig en zo jou! Ik heb ze ook een tijdje gezocht maar helaas niet te vinden in mijn 'grote' voetenmaat! Je gaat er zo veel plezier van hebben, dat weet ik zeker.

The main reason I do think that Vintage keys is probably the best VST piano in as much as electric pianos go is because the sounds genuinely transmits the understated intricacies associated with the established original instruments. * Piano is a staple of family singalong, whether it is for playing Christmas carols or any of your favorite tunes. This led musicologists such as Tom Beghin to believe that the technique of placing a strip of paper on piano strings would probably have originated before it was standardised as a register operated with stops, and that, for instance, Mozart's Alla Turca can safely be played with a piece of paper on some of the strings as a historical interpretation (see or for an audio example of this Alla Turca played on a prepared rebuilt authentic Mozart piano, in Tom Beghin's interpretation).
