87068_1.jpg Ballet pumps are, of course, everywhere you look these days. They're fantastic, and flats are all very well, but they don't set my heart racing like a pair of ridiculously impractical shoes. Imagine my glee then when I set eyes on these lovelies from Marc by Marc Jacobs.

These Ballet Satin heels combine all the prettiness of a ballet pump with a definite designer glam factor, and I am in love. They look like something which could easily grace the feet of a '40s starlet or even a burlesque dancer, which always spells sex appeal! I'd have preferred a slimmer heel, but that might push them over into the trash factor just this once. This pair are available online for £280 from Browns.
