Nautical but nice

Anna - 25 - Melbourne - Librarian

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

People should definitely not ask me for boy advice because my advice is always “don’t forget, you’re better than him.”

‘12 SHOES for 12 LOVERS‘

by Chilean-born, New York-based designer Sebastian Errazuriz.

The pieces reflects on the recollection of the artist’s personal and sexual relationships with former lovers, each of whom became the influence for a series of shoe sculptures. 
Each day, Errazuriz released one image of a new heeled design, completed by an accompanying photo of the footwear’s muse and a small, often explicit story about the duo’s escapades together.

’12 shoes for 12 lovers’ will exhibit at the pop-up shop of Brazilian shoe brand Melissa from December 6th, 2013 to January 6th, 2014 for Art Basel Miami Beach 2013.

Also, they aren’t actors/models! Real people!
