I just love those shopping/browsing moments where you see something that makes you freeze for a second and take it in. I truly believe that in those moments, there is art happening, and not just rampant consumerism as many would have you believe; these two things are not mutually exclusive to my way of thinking.

I shouldn’t like this as much as I do. If this sandal were on Project Runway, it would get told by Nina Garcia that it is too literal an interpretation; too costumey to be chic. Then Michael Kors would undoubtedly chime in and say that the designer had at last uncovered the long-lost Achilles’ heel of good taste, a sound byte that the network would run over and over in the promotional trailer. I love Project Runway, by the way. I’m just sayin’.
