New Regency shoe from American Duchess!

Dear fellow costumers,

I’m sure many of you have read about the Pemberley shoes being offered by American Duchess… but in case you have not seen yet, or in case you need a reminder… American Duchess is now offering a Regency style, historically accurate shoe! The shoe is available for pre-order today (November 25 through December 9) and at least 100 orders must be placed for the shoe to be produced. Let’s make it happen!

Also, given that it is the holiday season (which is a time for wishes, you know), I would like to wish that a higher heel Pemberley shoe would one day be produced by American Duchess… I envision a shoe with a 1 1/2″ –  2″ heel that can be worn with late 19th century clothing, like the styles below…

Happy shoe-ing to all!
