★ 1860s Embroidered Velvet Ladies Slippers

Pair of Woman's Slippers (LACMA)

These embroidered silk velvet and leather women’s slippers are so elegant! I’d happily wear them outside they’re so stylish! The intricate floral embroidery is just gorgeous, and I love the fact it winds its way around the heel of the shoe as well. They were made by a company called De Haven, in the United States, c.1866, and they’re currently in the collections of LACMA (though I wish they were in my wardrobe!).

Much love,
