I haven’t been blogging, I’m sorry, but I’ve been SO ill. I do have things to tell you guys about – the Madame X gown I didn’t get to wear, the 1960s yellow dress I haven’t finished, the soft straw bergere-type hat I haven’t trimmed…
For now, in all my feable-ness, just a short post to say that almost all of you voted for either #2 or #4 strap styles on the Edwardian pumps I asked you about in the last post.
|#2 and #4 were most popular|
So now the question is … the #2 straps are more typical, in that it was a very common style that lasted from the 1890s clear through the 1920s, whereas the double-crossing (haha) #4 straps are very unique, definitely Edwardian, but could be difficult to fit. Many of you expressed that you already have or have seen shoes with straps like #2, while one of the concerns about #4 is that it’s *so* unique that seeing them on all your friend’s feet might take away some the special-ness of them.
What do you think? I really can’t decide. Let’s put it to a vote (yes, another vote, I’m sorry!). Whichever wins this dual will be the Edwardian 1912 shoe for the 1812/1912/2012 release.
*Please note that both of these examples are museum pieces – the white from Shoe-Icons, and the black from the Met. The American Duchess 1912s will be as close as possible, but not exact replicas.
