A couple weekends ago, Chris and I ventured out with our gorgeous Edwardian model Liza, to shoot the new “Gibson” Edwardian shoes that have just come into stock.
Liza wore an antique chemise dress that fit her perfectly. I couldn’t believe it (and subsequently turned a dark shade of green) when she told me that a friend of hers had *given* it to her. She also brought along the most beautiful antique parasol I’ve ever seen. I turned even greener when she told me she found it for $23! (The Vintage-Find-Foo is strong with this one)
We shot on location in our favorite local park, Rancho San Rafael, which has served for our French countryside before. This time it played the role of Edwardian Western ranch, or perhaps a central park promenade somewhere sophisticated. You’ll see Liza on our website, Facebook page, and also gracing the cover of our new Summer catalog.

We hope you enjoy these photos of Liza, and that they inspire Edwardian creations and dress-ups of your own. If you’ve like a pair of Gibsons, they come in three colors (black, butterscotch, and dyeable ivory), and you can find them at www.AmericanDuchess.com.
