My Astoria's Came!

I got black and ivory in a 7 1/2. They fit quite well :)

Yay! So my American Duchess Astoria's came in the post yesterday and I am super pleased with them! I also ordered some Dauphine repro buckles, since I don't want to wear my antique pair out. I would never forgive myself!

My pair of antique buckles.
I spoke to someone who, on good authority,
think they were men's buckles, but
I do not know for sure
-- only know that they are gorgeous!!

I'm really pleased with the new narrower fit of the shoes, too. Most, if not every, extant pair of turn of the century shoes I have seen are incredibly narrow.
