i have lately been obsessed with these shoes; i don't think i've thought this much about a pair of shoes since my first doc martens in my teenaged years. i don't know what it is--i scoff at the "sex and the city" girls who would rather have uncomfortable, expensively clad feet than pay the rent, i generally only rotate out two pairs of shoes (black, not black) at a time. still, they're gorgeous, aren't they? sexy burgundy patent leather on a honeyed stacked wood heel, i imagine those louboutins are the cobbled equivalent of a very good, very expensive french wine. and at 4 2/5" high (2/5th inches!), i would be TALL. er. however, at US$710, i could also stand on a stack of 710 one dollar bills and be just as tall, only like, richer. maybe i'll just take up drinking sexy, oaky, expensive french wines.
so, i have shoes on my mind; when i saw this bento lunch box on the fantastic e-obento website, i knew i had to
completely rip it off faithfully recreate it. these fabulous gams were made with fresh sardines, marinated overnight in a pirikara spicy sauce of soy sauce, sesame oil, ground fresh chilis and grated ginger, then grilled and served on a bed of steamed white rice, and a green salad on the side. the shoes and skirt were carved from a red capsicum pepper. yay. and at roughly $4 for all the ingredients for two servings, i'm still $706 richer.
