Heat Wave Dress Code: Going on Pink

Augarten Porcelain's Viennese Rose

 Into the sunset,
with a bottle of Grüner Veltliner?
(You do know what Viennese do
to Grüner Veltliner wine, don't you?)

at St. Stephan's Cathedral
Were would we be without
the Pale Pink Splendor of Aida Cafés?

Sound of Music Dirndl?
Should I get a Dirndl, after all?
The pale green iridescent silk, the pale pink apron,
the apron strings bow, the possibilities ... **

I want that dress!

 Yes, I take the whole outfit.
Handbag included. :-)

If handbags could kill ...

Hermes' shop windows
make you stop in your Teva's!

 Kärntner Strasse
Pink going on Peach
So many great musicians
out there playing!

Pink Oleander at the Cafe' Opera
Into the Blue Hour
under the Opera arcades
Kärntner Strasse and Kärtner Ring

All gone!

on Tuchlauben.

I am having so much fun walking by
their pink gaudiness,
I am afraid, one of those days the
City of Vienna will want to collect Entertainment Taxes
for the sheer pleasure of all this eye candy!

(Merisi! You are nuts!)

  1. What do the Viennese do
    to Grüner Veltliner wine?
    I am puzzled...

    Hello! This is my first trip to Vienna! ;o) You have a wonderful blog! And being a lover of pink--this particular post was a great invitation, and I look forward to stopping by here again! Happy Day! :o)

  4. Hi Merisi,

    Okay, so I;m really curious now. Tell me, what do Viennese do with their Grüner Veltliner?

    Keep smiling


  5. won't fit in that pink dirndel if you eat all that pink ice cream...
    Still I think I'd pick the pink ice cream over the pink dresses..

  6. OH! DO have pink in vienna!

    thanks for showing me some of yours!


    yours over there looks
    so much more stylish
    that mine over here...

  7. And what lovely pinks they are!

  8. Love the pink (still tax-less!) - but my favorite is the 'killer handbag'. :-)
