I've had these antique shoes for years now, and I always wonder how they came to arrive in England as they originate from New York! They are handmade and inside in gold writing it says "Sommers inc, 27th W, 50th Street New York City. In tiny scripted handwriting inside it says the customer's name and order no!
They are pink satin, with gold kid heels and straps, but the double buckle is the prettiest part-it is studded with tiny amber jewels all the way round. Imagine having these shoes specially made to order in the 20's!
***Just an edit to say I've figured out how to use instagram so I'll try to take more photos and upload them to Flickr regularly!! If you click on my Flickr tab at the top of my blog that should take you there! Fingers crossed! Xxx
Another thing I am really fond of also originated from the States! I love vintage Turquoise Navajo jewellery, and have been given a few bits for presents which came from America. The 3 stone bangle is a vintage stamped one, as is the ring, and the 9 stone bangle with the rope edging is a newer piece by A. Jake who I think is a working Navajo silversmith. I love turquoise jewellery!
Anyway, enjoy your Sunday everyone xxx
