Review: American Duchess Moliere Edwardian Pumps The Dreamstress

My much-anticipated American Duchess Moliere shoes have come in, and I have given them a thorough look-over, and a proper wearing.   (Plus a bit of petting and cooing over them).  Now I can give you an equally proper review!

Review: The American Duchess Moliere Shoes thedreamstress.com

My feet:

You might find it helpful to know all about my feet, so you can take that on board when I discuss the Molieres fit:

Because there are slight variations in size and shape between brands:

  • 65% of my shoes are a size 39 (which is between a US/NZ 8 8.5)
  • 20% are a US/NZ 8.5 (these are predominantly summer shoes, because my feet swell when its hot)
  • 10% are a US/NZ 8
  • 5% are a 38

I have very high arches and insteps, and ballerina toes* (my first three toes are exactly the same length).  Im a true B width, with an even width from heel to front.  Overall, I have a very standard foot shape.

In general, it is extremely easy for me to find shoes that fit perfectly.  I can wear almost anything from a European shoe company, and most American shoe brands.  The only problems I ever have with fit are across my instep: some shoes are just designed for flatter feet, and cut across the top of mine.

The Look:

As always with American Duchess, the materials and craftmanship in the shoe are top-notch.  The ivory colour is almost more of a bone.  Its a really beauti...

Bird Wreath Ornament DIY Little Treasures

 

 
 
Every year we try to make some homemade ornaments, so this year was no exception.
After seeing a similar bird wreath ornament, ridiculously expensive, I decided to use our supplies and make one, considerably cheaper.
 
Supplies:
  • Memory wire
  • Faux pine garland
  • Small Styrofoam (or other ) birds
  • Ribbon
I couldn't find mini wreaths to buy, so I used memory wire instead. It bends and twists extremely easily and to shape it well I used a cup.
 

Wrapped faux pine garland around it as well as a sateen ribbon. I glued the birdies at the center and applied some white tempera to get a snowy look.

We also made one inspired by Anthropologie,...
