Look at this beautiful shoe!
I found it on Vintage Textile (www.vintagetextile.com), a wonderful online site filled with vintage clothes and accessories. They have so many fabulous things! Here are a few pictures from their website (click on each picture to take you to its page).
I was so thrilled to discover them! Their stuff is museum quality, and Melody and I just love looking around and being inspired!
Will you take a look at the embroidery on this spencer? It’s a real garment from the 1810s, and it just takes my breath away.
I can’t believe how much detail there is — first, the work is beautiful overall, and then the stitches look so tiny, regular and masterful!
Can you imagine how much time that must have taken? And it’s a real piece of history — someone really made it and wore it, long ago.
If only everything we did in life could be as thoughtful, careful, and truly beautiful!
In other news, we got a bit more done on the new Christmas line this weekend! It’s coming along, and we know it’s going to be fabulous…
