American Duchess Spring Cleaning Sale


Yes this company makes my favorite shoes. If you saw some of the Harlows (in gray and red) in some of my photos this year you should know they were an exclusive run and only a few are left from returns. These are in included in this sale! Some lucky size 6.5, 9,& 9.5 sized feet will be very happy soon:

Gray Harlows

Red Harlows

and finally the ones I wish I had purchased:

White & Black

“Stratford” Elizabethan Shoe (Oxblood & Black) on Preorder NOW


I just ordered my pair in Oxblood but they also come in Black

The Men’s sizes had to be cancelled due to low demand but if you have a gentleman who wishes these shoes in their sizes make sure you ping Lauren at American Duchess and she just might try another preorder for Men’s sizing in Spring (at least we can hope). And it would be an opportunity for ladies with larger or wider feet to get in on these shoes too…

Shoes, Let’s get um.

My friend Lauren is up to no good again and has designed yet another pair of shoes! SHOES! Must have them! Oh wait sorry, I am getting ahead of myself. If you haven’t seen them here is a photo she provided:

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 American Duchess to order.

I own a pair of her silk Georgiana’s and they are beautiful and so far comfortable. The leather version probably will be even more so as they can “break in” nicely to the shape of your foot I imagine. Anyway, go check out her site if you are interested.
