A Sparkling Vintage Life

tie shoeIf you like vintage-style shoes (Renaissance, 18th century/Regency, Victorian/Edwardian, and 1920s), American Duchess is the last gasp.

From their website:

“American Duchess is a small, historical, reproduction footwear company based in Reno, Nevada, USA. It was born from an inability to find elegant, affordable, comfortable and historically accurate footwear. Partnering with a community of hundreds of frustrated costumers around the world, we now manufacture a growing line of beautifully hand crafted 18th Century, Regency and Edwardian shoes as well as reproduction shoe buckles and silk stockings.”

I haven’t pulled out my credit card yet, but believe me, the next time I’m in the market for vintage-style shoes, I’ll know where to go!
