For The Love of Shoes

I found this site, http://www.mymuseumoflondon.org.uk/blogs/blog/category/fashion/page/3/. It's a wonderful blog. The shoes are from the museum's costume collection. The shoes are so beautiful. Can you imagine dancing the night away in these?

The heels on this shoe...oh my goodness....I want just the heel!


If you click on the link above, you can read about the men who created these lovely little pieces. The craftsmanship is something to be admired.
I decided to include this shoe below.
The poem actually reads,
"There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children, she did not know what to do;
She gave them some broth without any bread;
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed."
Thankfully, we have changed!
If you would like to read this post, you can find it here, http://www.mymuseumoflondon.org.uk/blogs/blog/there-was-an-old-woman/
In the post, they explain the possible history of this piece. I thought it was rather interesting.
Just a little something fun to end the day!

  2. Is that what is known as a Cuban heel, the curved one? I have often wondered, it is lovely.

    1. Hi Julie, Sadly, I am not up on the names of heel styles, all I know is that it is really pretty:) You have made me curious though, so I will be looking into heel styles!

  4. Oh, I love all of these shoes. I think it's a shame that now that we have the technology to make beautiful, comfortable shoes, no one does, really. Women unite! Demand beautiful, practical shoes!
