in progress: Queen of Hearts – shoes!

My personal deadline for the Queen of Hearts dress I’m working on is March 5th, the release date for Tim Burton’s new Alice in Wonderland movie. It’s less than two weeks away, which means it’s time to consider details like shoes! Using vintage shoes as inspiration, I have picked these black beauties from my shoe collection – I’m planning on white stockings (Alice style), so these should look more period inspired in context.

I have been keeping these magazine pages in my inspiration box for ages. I don’t even remember what magazine they came from, but the shoes are from the impressively large and immaculately maintained collection of Lillian Williams.

in in progress, inspiration
