Love this sexy, suede platform sandal! The t-strap and double ankle straps with buckles are so unique. Would wear these with bare legs in fall and then transition to pairing with black tights for winter. Great shoe for multiple seasons!
Met Museum dates this wool wrapper as ca.1854, but there is nothing '50s about those coat sleeves, evident in the profile view. (Click through for alt. views.) Also, as usual, should have a cord tie at the waist; particularly as there would be no point to the boned corselet built into the lining if the dress were not meant to be drawn in to fit. Gauged skirt back; body shirred at CB; body lined with polished brown cotton.
