I have a problem with shoes. Not modern shoes like any normal female. No, I have a problem with historical shoes. Any time period is fair game, especially if they’re white and I can customize them.
I usually buy my shoes from American Duchess. I love the variety she offers and it is very easy to justify my purchases by explaining to everyone that I am doing what I can to help a small business stay alive, especially since it is a small business that we costumers/reenactors need. Telling people I simply WANTED the shoes would not do of course.
Every once in a while I splurge while things are on sale (other times I just splurge) and set them aside until a later date when I have the time to decorate them just the way I want. Recently I pulled four (!) pairs of shoes out of their boxes.
Stay tuned for posts on my newly prettified Astorias, 23 Skidoos, Nankeens, and Highburys!
