Les Etoiles...French for The Stars. For blushing brides, the Les Etoiles Garter Series is made up of shiny satin, ivory lace, and sheer ivory organza. Adorning the satin bow is a the shiniest rhinestone star! A true delight for your special day!
You may remember earlier this year I was on the search for vintage boudoir slippers. Having a size 10 shoe size has made this hunt something I thought would be impossible. I came really close to buying the Miss L Fire for What Katie Did repro version, but was having a hard time justifying the cost. I'm afraid, I'm just not that fabulous. Well, what seemed like a holy grail find for me has been found!
While on a recent trip to Hudson, NY for some antiquing I stumbled upon Five and Diamond Vintage, an adorable little vintage shop off the main street. I bought some vintage slips for myself and as I was about to leave I noticed these Daniel Green beauties in the glass case. Surely, they must be a size 8 if they even look close to my size.
Much to my surprise they are a 9.5 that I can get my narrow size 10 into! For a fraction of the cost of the Miss L Fire's I didn't skip a beat to grab these! Boudoir slippers are now off of my wish list and in my closet!
I have a new handmade series in my Etsy shop, The Sparkling Cocktail! Tweed Cables is a series of a hand knit cabled fingerless gloves in a soft wool tweed in four different heather gray colors. I love the intricate cable pattern on these and the right and left hand mirror each other. The palm side is a flat knit. Ribbing makes up the top, bottom, and thumb. These are really warm, enjoy!
