So far I’ve avoided doing posts about products, as I feel that there are more than enough out there, but what girl can resist a pair of beautiful shoes? American Duchess make historically accurate shoes from the 16th to the 20th century that are comfortable enough for the modern foot. Their latest design is the Gibson Edwardian shoe, perfect for suffragettes and career women of all Ages.
For those who wish to be a Georgian beauty or channel Marie Antoinette, there is a wide range of stunning leather shoes in all era-appropriate shapes and sizes
The flappers amongst you will surely appreciate the beautiful T-bar “23 Skidoo”, which is also available in a plain white – Perfect for customising with shoe dye to suit any costume or outfit. Quite handy as wedding shoes too, I should think.
My personal favourite has to be the oh-so-awesome Victorian boot, a thing of beauty and elegance, that I definitely have my beady eye on.
Whether you’re into re-enactments, the vintage scene or just love a beautifully made leather shoe, this website is a great find. American Duchess is running a competition at the moment to win a pair of Gibson shoes.
