Gail Carriger Talks Pretty Shoes

Just because, some images of pretty shoes. First a few vintage stunners.

 1920s shoes via Shoe Icons
 1925-1927 via The Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
 White I Miller 1945
 Jeweled heels ca. 1925 via The Kyoto Costume Institute
Fabulous Flapper Footwear from Tea with the Vinatge Baroness.

Some retro shoes (vintage inspired but modern made).

 These ones from Clockwork Couture

 Marni S/S 2012
 Mona Oxford pumps

And, as lust objects go, how abotu a peek into Dita Von Teese's shoe closet?


  1. I will take the White I Miller 1945 with the 4th pair of jeweled heels, please.

  2. Love the kitty ones. If you want modern retro shoes - - design your own in 3D, then get them made!

  3. The second pair (Shoe Icons) look like ballroom heels to me...
    I like the ankle-boot ones with many buttons, worn with lacy rose stockings!

  4. The one pair looks like tea cups. I find shoes/boots that I figure your characters wear here many of them make me think of Lady Maccon! ;)

  5. Sadly Fluvogs are not for me, their shoes run wide and I'm on the narrow end of things.
