I don't do this sort of thing very often (make posts encouraging you to buy things, I mean. Except yarn, obviously), but American Duchess is worthy of the attention. Everything Lauren produces is incredibly well-researched and of such high quality. Basically, her shoes are amazing, comfortable, and awesome.
I will be making a post soon about the wonderful 23Skidoos I got for my birthday and how beautifully they painted up and how comfortable they are to wear. But for now, let me show you the Claremonts.
pre-order is running right now (all American Duchess shoe designs are crowd-funded), and I need enough people to buy it that she is able to make a run of the equally awesome black version, because yes, I will, in fact, probably end up buying a pair in each color.
