Oh, be still, my heart! I just happened upon this blog, quite by accident! American Duchess is a blog about 16th through 20th century costumes. Right now, they are taking pre-orders for these BEAUTIFUL leather shoes from the 18th century! (drool)
I have a love affair going with history, and I simply adore the 18th century clothing! I also love shoes, any shoes, many shoes! I could possibly win a pair of these beautiful (did I say that before?) Devonshire shoes!!! Only two hundred pairs of these will be made!
"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 www.american-duchess.com to order."
Oh, please, let me win a pair! (hands clasped, imploringly)
Take care and God Bless!
