Portrait of Elizabeth de la Vallee de la Roche by Michel-Pierre Hubert Descours, 1771 France, the Bowes Museum
Shoe, ca 1790, Black Country History
The buckle is from the 19th century.
Shoes, ca 1925 Hong Kong, the Bowes Museum
La marquise de Migieu by Joseph Marie Vien, 1764 France, Musee des beaux-arts Nantes
The colors are absolutely stunning. I can’t stop looking at it!
Walking dresses, date missing (1830’s) United States (Philadelphia), source missing
If I ever post a fashion plate without a date and source, chances are it’s kept in a museum in France. For some reason they think we don’t want to know that stuff.
Shoes with clogs, ca 1715 England, the Bowes Museum
Fetish mule, 19th century, Musee International de la Chaussure
These look absolutely cartoony. I love them. (Would never wear them though.)
