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?
"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!

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!
