So what the heck do I post about after all that craziness with the Georgiana shoes? Life’s returning to normal, but I’m still quite excited:
We met the 100 shoe order minimum within 24 hours! We currently have 126 orders, and the pre-order period will remain open until April 22nd. Thank you a million times over to everyone who bought shoes and talked about it all over the internet, you wonderful people!!

So what else is going on? Well, I’ve been dreaming about hats, after having bought Vintage Hats & Bonnets 1770-1970 Second Edition, and I purchased several toppers to play with, along with a new hat mannequin. Aside from modelling hats myself, the only other way I had to really show them was on one of those horrid white styrofoam heads. The beautiful mannequins in Vintage Hats & Bonnets 1770-1970 Second Edition were so inspiring, I had a look around internet-land and found this 1920s cheeky-looking girl on eBay for a good price. And now she’s mine, mwahaha! Honestly she kinda creeps me out….
|She needs a name…?|
I have some other things to show you, like these awesome retro “sporty” shoes from ModCloth. I thought they looked kindof like 1930s-ish to wear with tennis dresses and snappy panama hats. ModCloth has a nice selection of vintage-inspired footwear on right now. (no, this is not an affiliate link, I’m just excited about my new shoes).
|Mmm, sporty! and comfy too.|
Other news – it’s time for Vintage Summer Dresses (VSDs), as the weather is fast improving. I have this one in the works, in a baby yellow batiste with white micro-dots. Has anybody else used this pattern – Butterick 6582?
