Okay, y'all, this is fantastic. I don't know if you've checked this company out yet, but if you are at all into historical costuming, you should. American Duchess is making affordable 18th century shoes, and there aren't many people doing that (we don't all have $300 to spend on shoesm, after all!)
About the shoes:
The Devonshires are a leather 18th century shoe based on museum examples from the 1760s through 1780s. They're made of top-grade dyable leather, with a beautiful, smooth Italian leather sole for dancing, and are hard-wearing, water- and mud-proof, for even the toughest of outdoor re-enactments.
Pre-Order the Devonshires through August 10, and get the special $100 price. We're only making 200 of these shoes, so don't miss the chance to own one of only a couple hundred pair on the planet! Visit http://www.american-duchess.com/ to order.
I'm an actress, classically trained singer and historical costumer, but I love writing, sketching and painting, cooking, doll-making, and about a hundred other things I try to squeeze into every minute of free time. I live in Southern California with my rabbit, Viola—but, in my heart, I truly reside in Victorian England.
