For those in the reenactment/costuming/history world, this is a year of –ennials. The bicentennial of the War of 1812 (and my alma mater’s founding). The Civil War sesquicentennial’s second year. The centennial of the Titanic. And, likely other things outside of America/England.
I told you about American Duchess’ regency shoes last month. They are a very good reproduction for Regency/Jane Austen/1812 reenactors/celebrators. I fully intended to purchase a pair myself, however life and priorities got in the way and I couldn’t justify the money for only one expected wear. One of those priorities is buying their latest shoe: The Astoria (in ivory).
