Being from Nevada, albeit the other end of the state, I’m not really excited to be going to Vegas for the next three days…but I AM excited to be visiting the US’s largest footwear show for the first time!
Now, with American Duchess you know that we design and manufacture all our own shoes, but with our shiny new sister brand, Royal Vintage, we curate a collection of vintage style shoes made by other companies. I’m visiting FN Platform, the footwear leg (foot?) of Magic, that twice-yearly mega tradeshow where everyone in the country sources cool fashion stuff for their stores, to find shoes that have that 20s, 30s, and 40s aesthetic.
I’m excited but also a bit nervous. Magic is *HOOJ* and I’m afraid of not seeing everything or even finding the cool and quirky vintagey stuff! It’s rather a “I’ll know it when I see it” sort of adventure.
So my question to you is – what would you like me to bring back for you? Any particular styles, heel heights, sizes, colors, decades? What have you been missing in your retro fashion footwear collection? Let me know in the comments below!
