French Friday – My Fantasy New Year's Champagne Glass

French-Friday-on-Misadventures-with-AndiI am just back from my holiday vacation – had a fabulous time.  I need to get unburied, but I just had to post this today as a French Friday!

And I am going to take it directly from the France Today article where it was posted:

France’s foremost designer of haute heels, Christian Louboutin, in partnership with Piper Heidsieck champagne, has revived a decadent 19th-century Russian tradition whereby noble admirers would drink from the demi-pointe slippers of their favorite ballerinas-a custom transplanted to Paris and continued by the saucy showgirls at the Folies Bergères. Just in time for the holidays, Louboutin has designed a black crystal stiletto with a clear, 6-inch cut-crystal heel-and his signature red sole, of course. Called Le Rituel, the handsome glass-slipper champagne sipper comes packaged in a limited edition boxed set with a bottle of Piper Heidsieck. €350, at La Grande Epicerie of Le Bon Marché department store (38 rue de Sèvres, 7th).

So last night, while sipping champagne, ringing in the New Year, how fun would have it had been to be sipping out of this:
