life imitating art

Maria, unaware she is being art, studies the brilliant Liu Wei sculpture at the excellent opening for the current Phillips du Pury contemporary auction. It's funny, Maria & I loved this sculpture, our men didn't get it. Perhaps they're not as used to seeing photos in magazine layouts of women with their heads and arms cut off.
Maria's dress is vintage, her ethical, vegetarian shoes, non-animal product leather platform beaded heels, by Stella McCartney. We've come a long way since Birkenstocks. For one thing, we can't walk as easily, but that's what taxis are for. And boyfriends with fast cars.

oh my life! those shoes are actually beautiful, I can't believe they are ethical aswell! it's so hard to achieve great looking garments or accessories that are also eco products.

And those shoes just reinforce my love of nearly everything Stella Mccartney designs (: Always so beautiful.
