Now offering period appropriate 18th and 19th century paste jewelry in my Etsy shop, including hard-to-find collet necklaces. These are made with vintage glass stones and are absolutely gorgeous. Click on the pictures to be taken to the listings, but keep in mind that I’ve only started listing stuff so I’ll have more available soon!
AMAZING new American Duchess shoes! These are accurate Regency Walking boots, with leather soles even! I’ve been begging her to makes these boots since she started, so I couldn’t be more thrilled. BUT! They have a strict pre-order and you only have until September 1st, so get them while you can!
They also come in white, so you can dye them any color. Dyeing the shoes is amazingly easy, by the way, so don’t hesitate to try it!
I’m going to get a pair in white and dye them dark green!
I’ve started selling paper millinery flowers in my Etsy shop. I’ve been doing a lot of research on flowers in 18th and 19th century millinery and am so captivated by the lovely way they used flowers and leaves. I’ll post some inspiration images over the next few days.
I am SOOOOO excited about the new shoes from American Duchess! Not only are these historically accurate, but they are so damn cute! Can’t wait to wear them around the office! I’m getting the brown, but I’m tempted to get a pair of the white and paint them some lovely color!
Hi folks, I have a request. If you pin one of the fashions plates I post on pinterest, PLEASE make sure that you carryover the title of the publication and the date. I keep seeing a lot of my fashion plates without the details, and while they do link back to the source, I don’t think people should have to take the extra step to see what they are looking at. Dates and sources are incredibly important for folks doing research, so let’s not make it harder for them to find the information they need.
Now here’s a picture of me making a funny face in a historic costume:
