Glass Slippers: For Real!

Marc Jacobs has come out with the real deal Glass "Cinderella" Slipper for those who ever dream of owning their own fairy tale slipper. As for me, I can't imagine how my toes would look inside this pump! But most importantly, why in the world would I spend $595 on a pair of shoes. 

And since we are in the topic of shoes. These shoes were sold at auction only for $57,000. They were Marie Antoinette's shoes circa 1790. She were worn for a particular French celebration sometime in the month of July in 1790. My question is: Who saw Antoinette wear this shoes this particular day? They wore dresses down to the floor! At any rate, these pair may have been pretty and fashionable back in the day but who would wear them today? They could be haunted!

Wow, they know what shoes Marie Antoinette wore in 1790? I don't remember what shoes I wore to my own wedding. LOL By I am not a shoe person. I'm happy to wear my nephew's old Converse. Whatever is comfortable. But still, it's kind of cool to see historical shoes.
