Fairytale Footwear...

...is now a fairly affordable reality


I'm sure you all recognize the iconic glass slipper from Cinderella.



Now you can have the next best thing.
Yes, the pumps in the above picture are real.  
They're not exactly glass, but transparent PVC with lucite heels.
And available for purchase (click here).  
By none other than the incredible Marc Jacobs.

At $595 they're a bit out of my price range... but oh so tempting 
(I can justify the purchase by making them my future wedding shoes... right?)


And if you could afford an even heftier price tag
check out this pair made of actual glass 
by Maison Martin Margiela...


...but at $2,580 a pair I dont think I'll be purchasing them any time soon.
Just admiring them.  And wondering how uncomfortable they must be to walk in.

P.S.   Another pair I'm still searching for:
