edible accessory retreat.

On the flight over to here to Santiago from Punta Arenas, I flipped through the airline mag to find these precious eggplant slippers!



While I can't really imagine myself wearing eggplants on me feet, I love the idea of real ballet pretties in aubergine. These are real eggplants, though, by Italian artist Fulvio Bonavia.

Here are some of my other favorite items. I seem to be drawn in by the handbags...

{blackberries}
{broccoli}

{+ prosciutto : equal parts gross and cool}


What do you think about beautiful ephemeral food art?

these photos are amazing, but i'm pretty sure the real deal would get awfully smelly very quickly.

best enjoyed vicariously. :)

I've seen these posted a lot and they get even weirder! But I do think the eggplant slippers are totally precious and that someone should make some actual flats that look like eggplants and have the stem on the back!
