Glass Slipper Hunt Results Are In...

Robert Clergerie rafia sneakers were eliminated quickly (#2). They are the correct size, but my toenails catch on the rafia (gross), and my bare feet stick to the soles and make a yucky smacking sound when I walk. No point in rafia shoes you have to wear socks with.

Dansko sandals (#3-6) are soooooo comfy, but I didn't feel like any of the outfits were as good as or better than their versions with the galaxy shoes (although I do love the look with midis and skinnies). The toe box looks a teeny tiny bit bulbous on my narrow foot, and I don't think the bright color works for me in this style. If a discounted pair happens along my path in black or brown, I may snap it up for sore-footed work days, but it is not my Glass Slipper.

So there you have it! Galaxy oxfords win all the way, baby. (#7) Low contrast to the leg, functions as a neutral by going with so many colors, DH likes them, and they're comfy. YLF Forum approved *and* not a duplication in any way. Unique with a great story and symbolism. Hard to argue with that!

Most importantly, I can't tell you how thankful I am to the Fairy Godmothers who made this slipper hunt possible. Beside the thrill of a new pair of shoes and the warmth of a wonderful gesture, this has been something to keep my mind occupied and focused on the future - new outfits to create, a new chapter in the job story, Spring, Summer, and all. I will get the warm fuzzies and an off-the-charts happiness quotient each and every time they come out to play. <3 <3 <3 XOXOXO

    Woooot! I love those galaxy oxfords on you, man I just can't get over the fact that they're low contrast. So cool! Also, outfit #3 is awesome. I'm hoping to find similar shorts this summer (not that we can wear them much BUT STILL). Can't wait to see all the sweet outfits featuring the galaxy at your feet :D

    (OK and as a Barbie pumps gal myself... is it bad that I looove the glass pump in #1? So pretty! I would totally wear it :) )

  • Janet replied 7 years ago

    I was reserving judgment until I saw them all on your feet, but I will say again I LOVE the oxfords and am so happy they're winners. I just can't get past the "bulbous" nature of the Danskos, and even though I liked the Clergeries, I didn't love the white sole of those, and the comfort issues are a deal-breaker. Hooray for the galaxy oxfords!

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    SO glad the galaxy oxfords won the round! They look best by about a billion percent to my eye. I'm glad they feel best too.

    Wooohooo! High Happiness Factor!! In flats to boot :)

  • Debbie replied 7 years ago

    Those are the coolest shoes!

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    YAY! Although i kind of love the Danskos too, I think they are too "clean" for you with that Swedish Hasbeen look.

  • Susie replied 7 years ago

    Yay, so cool! The oxfords look so perfect for you! Though I do like the Dansko's much better on you than just the picture.

  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago

    Yay! I loved those oxfords!

  • Caro in Oz replied 7 years ago

    Happy for you:) both pairs look fantastic.

  • Ariadne replied 7 years ago

    Yay! I think you made a great choice. Those oxfords are truly beyond stellar--galactic!

    What's the new chapter in the job story?

  • Parsley replied 7 years ago

    I'm so glad those worked for you!
    The fact that they symbolize the YLF sisterhood and support is inspirational!

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    This oxfords are truly fantastic - both in looks and in feelings behind them!
    Surprisingly I quite like Danskos on you, even if I was not a fan before...never know until you try!

  • Nadya replied 7 years ago

    May they serve serve their UWP well!

  • Mo replied 7 years ago


  • Girl X replied 7 years ago

    Whoohoo!!! Awesome!! The Galaxy oxfords are by far my favourite, but the colour of the Danskos is really great on you - maybe for a pair of waxed jeans or something?

    (And Aida, I totally want the Cinderella heels in #1 too!!)

  • lynne replied 7 years ago

    Yay!!!! I was rooting for the oxfords. I'm a big fan of Danskos, but the oxfords are better. Like you said, if you find the Danskos on sale....

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Heh heh, I want the glass slippers in the picture, too. Even the UW Princess wants to be a princess at the ball!

    Hrm, I did find the black Danskos for $80.... must think on this!

  • MNsara replied 7 years ago

    oooh - the Galaxy oxfords for the win!! I think they'll be wonderful and SO fun to wear :-)

    I must say I think your striped shirt with the camo cargos is fantabulous, and I hope you've been wearing that combo.

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    Excellent work in finding your perfect match. I love the galaxy oxfords. Wear them well.

  • Diana replied 7 years ago

    Late to the ball, but just wanted to say YAY! I love them, and am so glad you found your glass slippers!

  • cciele replied 7 years ago


  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Great choice, Rae, but count me in with those who are amazed about the Danskos. I did not expect to like those AT ALL and I found myself strangely drawn to them!!
